The Reeking Reign of the Head Cheese
Rock and Ride! is the first episode of the original version of Biker Mice from Mars.
Throttle, Modo and Vinnie – The Biker Mice from Mars – escape their planet as it is devastated by the fish-faced Plutarkians. Crash landing in Chicago, the renegade rodents soon discover the Plutarkians have selected their next target for destruction: Earth. Led by his "supreme cheesiness", Lawrence Limburger, and his devilish cohorts, Greasepit and the fiendish Dr. Karbunkle, the Plutarkians are already undermining the Windy City. It's tail whippin' time 'cause the baddest motorcycle mammajammers in the universe are riding to the rescue.
- When the mice save Charley from Greasepit, Modo makes a reference to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with "You were expecting turtles, maybe?"
- The X-Terminator is a parody of Terminator.
- The X-Terminator's line "Hasta la vista, rodents" is a reference from Terminator's line "Hasta la vista, baby" from Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
