Once a big name cartoon star for Wackytoons Studios, he was fired due to his show being bumped out of first place in the ratings. Pooh and his friends meet him when they warn him of a falling billboard. Bonkers, Pooh and the gang were introduced to law enforcement when they unknowingly saved cartoon celebrity Donald Duck from a park mugger (mostly due to the help of officer Lucky Piquel) and were given full credit for the mugger's capture. For his actions, they received the Citizen of Valor awards by the Chief of Police, Leonard Kanifky. Bonkers, while soaking in the praise, told the chief about how his experiences starring in police cartoons helped in the capture of the mugger. Chief Kanifky mistook his fictional roles as real life, world wide police accounts and, thinking that Bonkers, Pooh and the gang would be benefits to the police force, asked if the former cartoon star and his friends would like jobs working for the Hollywood PD, which Bonkers accepted because of his recent unemployment from Wackytoons Studios. Bonkers then requested Lucky as his partner, and the two established the beginning of the Toon Division. When Bonkers first came home to Lucky's house, he was treated as a sort of adopted son to Lucky.
After the solving of their first case and the defeat of The Collector, Bonkers and Lucky stayed partners and Pooh and the gang continued on their journeys.
