Hoist appeared a few times in the cartoon, but I can't recall him ever being used much. He was a variation on the Trailbreaker mold with towing tools in place of the camper cover, and looked a fair bit cooler. I wish I'd bought him as a kid instead of the much-neglected Skids when I had the chance.
