Mama Meany made his first appearance in Perfect Pizza when Garfield discovered that Jon had ordered pizza from Mama Meany's Pizza Palace insead of Vito's (Mostly because Jon had a coupon to Mama Meany's) At first Mama was believed to be a woman until it was discovered that Mama is actually a man and revealed that his machine created the rubber pizzas. Later when he learned that Eddie Gourmand, the famous food critic, called in an order for a large pizza from Vito's, Mama and one of his henchman began to chase Garfield and Jon (Who deliver the pizza since Vito's van wasn't working) to stop the order. However after Eddie tasted both pizzas Mama's lost all of his customers to Vito and planned to make the machine make snow tires, even commenting how both taste the same.
He later appeared again this time running a con shopping channel as he and the host sold false products on TV. When he learned that Garfield planned to get his money back, he ordered the sercuirty guards to capture him and not refund his money. However when Garfield recorded Mama's and the host's voice on the recorder talking about their scam, Mama was forced to give back all the money and give Garfield a three-year supply of bubble wrap.
