Hello everyone! One of my favorite cartoon characters has to be Scooby Doo:
Scooby Doo has encountered many many monsters and villains throughout his career. So I decided to highlight a couple. Here are five of them in no particular order:
The Puppet Master:
This villain was later to be Pietro in “The Backstage Rage” episode of Scooby Doo Where Are You? He was making a mess at the Strand Theatre so he can continue his operations of fake goods. He is mostly know by his daring hat and overpowering cape.
This villain was inspired by the Phantom of The Opera:
As you may or may not be aware one of my favorite subjects are clowns. So when I first saw this villain I knew he was going to be one of favorites.
He is a villain that has been part of the Scooby Doo world numerous times. He has put Scooby Doo and the gang in very dangerous and deadly situations numerous times. He uses a coin to hypnotize his victims easily so he can get them to do whatever bidding he wants.
The reason why he dislikes Scooby and the gang is because during the first episode he was on “Bedlam in the Big Top.” He was mad that the circus he was working for caught him stealing from them and he was sent to prison for it. So when he acted out his revenge to the circus by making sure the circus’s equipment was breaking down the gang was close behind his tracks! They caught him and he went back to jail! So every since he made it his passion to get back at them.
Spooky Space Kook:
This villain has one of the honors of being in the first season of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? (Season 1, Episode 15). His real name is Henry Bascomb. His main intention in dressing up as this persona was to frighten people off an Air Force base so the land will be dirt cheap and he can buy it. I remember this villain would be glowing red when he laughs. He would also used his laughter to scare off people who were getting too close to the land he wanted to buy.
This villain was stealing pearls from M. Dreyfus who was working at Aqualand. It was later known that it was an employee who was working for M. Dreyfus name Mr. Wells who was the man in the costume. He wanted to take his boss’s job so he can take over the pearl game there.
This villain had the power to remove the electricity in buildings and cause the people inside those buildings to be in the dark. He appeared in “The Neon Phantom of the Roller Disco.”
It was later found out that behind the mask of this villain was irate neighbor name Bill Walker. He was living next door to Sparkles Roller Disco and didn’t want to move out of his home so he literally did everything he could to stay. Even if that meant destroying the roller disco!
I will definitely have a part two to this blog post. Which ones do you want to see on future blog posts? Comment below!
Until next time!!
