So all I can remember is that he was a cartoon villain who was super old, in a wheelchair, had a huge forehead, with purple glasses, and had a white lab coat on. I'm pretty sure he was a doctor or evil scientist. It was an older cartoon shown on Cartoon Network I think. I used to watch it as a kid so around 1998-2004.

evil looking scientist

The photo is a fan art I found that looks very similar to him. The one I am talking about is much more cartoon-like.

    How old is it? When did you see this? Can you remember any plot elements? – TheLethalCarrot Sep 21 '18 at 15:40
  • Dexter's Laboratory? – TheLethalCarrot Sep 21 '18 at 15:42
  • Did you see multiple episodes of the show? Was this villain a regular on the show, vs. a one-time opponent? Also, anything in particular that would make him "super old"? Liver spots, old man's voice, something attitudinal? Any recollection of who he would have been a villain of? – RDFozz Sep 21 '18 at 16:30

    I say older because he was bald, in a wheel chair. He had small wrinkles lines. He talked like an older man. I've seen him in multiple episodes. I would say it was made between 1995-2000. – Kayla Lohse Sep 21 '18 at 19:23

    I added a photo that someone drew that looks like him. – Kayla Lohse Sep 21 '18 at 19:43

Is there a possibility you're conflating several characters together?

The character you posted a picture of is from an episode of the Mad Magazine cartoon, from a bit about Villain Hand Sanitizer.

The character you've described is also a pretty good description of Dr. Finkelstein from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

But he wasn't on Cartoon Network.

General Immortus, from the Teen Titans show, was on Cartoon Network

But didn't use a wheelchair - though Chief, leader of the Doom Patrol did.

There's also the mad scientist from Robot Chicken, the ANGRY scientist from Sheep in the Big City, and any number of mad scientists from Courage the Cowardly Dog

To sum up, some more detail might help narrow things down a bit.


Biker Mice from Mars's Dr. Karbunkle is quite similar to the image you posted and fits some of the characteristics you list:

  • old
  • huge forehead
  • white lab coat
  • evil doctor/scientist

but there are a few differencies too:

  • he wears green glasses, not purple ones
  • he is not completely bald
  • no wheelchair
  • according to Wikipedia the series ran from 1993 to 1996, though there is also a 2006 reboot

    I feel like I'm not adding them all up together. But who knows I was so young. I vividly remember him. The picture I posted isn't exactly him. The one I'm thinking of is much older and is a tiny frail man with a large forehead and bald. He had a automatic willchair and he was always rubbing his hands together with a white lab coat. – Kayla Lohse Sep 22 '18 at 1:41
