Ortega was the silent henchman from the movie featured in experiment #812, The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies. In a host segment, Ortega (played by Paul Chaplin) appeared on the Satellite of Love as a caterer and had an unpleasant encounter with Mike.
Ortega later became a recurring character, making brief cameos in subsequent epsiodes. In Agent for H.A.R.M. Ortega served a character witness in Mike's trial, though his (incomprehensible) testimony was damning.
NotesThe striking similarities between Ortega and Torgo were the subject of much fan discussion when Incredibly Strange Creatures first aired.
