Chuckles has been undercover for so long that nobody is really sure about who he actually works for. He got his start in "hole-and-corner" operations at Southeastern Insurance Group in Fort Lauderdale where he still feels he owes his main allegiance. Chuckles is a man's man, every CID boy's favorite companion. Not just because of his jocularity or his perseverance in the field, but because he is so conscientious about keeping up his "cover" that he'll volunteer for missions that nobody else wants to go on.
"Chuckles' natural likability is his greatest asset. He can sit around all day with a bunch of Cobras, grinning, cracking jokes and punching shoulders, all the while wearing a miniature transmitter that's being homed in on by the Joe Team. Chuckles is aware of the consequences of being found out...He's also confident of his ability to fight his way out of any situation."
No variations of Chuckles (v1) are known to exist.
Chuckles' body is completely original - all new body parts.
In India in 1990, Chuckles was released in slightly different colors - with darker pants and a differently colored holster.
