He joins the service of Ransik when he is saved from stasis by the arrival of the villain's forces. He aids Ransik in the 21st Century, serving as the dumb muscle of the mutant army. A running gag throughout the series is his crush on Ransik's daughter, Nadira, and his attempts to win her affection; he would always be promptly rejected. Gluto later finds the treacherous Frax, and brings in Ransik to collect him. During the final assault on the city, Gluto decides to freeze himself inside the prison, unwilling to stick around for whatever might happen. It is unknown if the rangers found him at the prison and took him back to 3000 with Ransik and Nadira or if he remained in the past.
