"Short-Fuze is logical and sensitive. Has a tendency to blow his stack---hence the nick-name...Short-Fuze."



My Personal Notes: Short-Fuze was one of the early Joes I remember getting. It is unfortunate, I remember having more than one of his mortar canons, but I now have somehow lost them all and have resorted to using the one from the accessory pack. He is complete otherwise, including his file card.
