I'll bite - who is it?

glen davis said...

He's the villain from the cartoon the Adventures of Penelope Pitstop.

I think his name is something like Snidely Whiplash.

Aditya Bidikar said...

No. Whiplash was from Dudley Do-Right. This guy's the Hooded Claw. Now what do I get?

Zaratustra said...

Now, here's a villain I can get behind. A fellow that doesn't need to rape, kill or even -steal- things because he's already evil to the root of his being. That requires effort, people.

Bully said...

I will protect you from the Hooded Claw, keep the vampires from your door.

Scipio said...

Knowing Sylvester Sneekly, a.k.a. the Hooded Claw, is its own reward.

The laugh.

The outfit.

The byznatine death traps.

The deceptive facade.

The imbecilic assistants.

The laugh.

The vicious sarcasm.

The dedication despite failure.

The sheer joy in doing evil.

And, of course, the laugh.


Nobody is the Hooded Claw's equal; not even close.

The Joker is a distant second.

You cheated. The title of the picture when seen under properties is hclaw. He's got a hood so it's easy to guess the h. So no prize for you.

Jon said...

Doesn't have much of a hood, does he? That's more a cowl/high collar/awesome hat combo.

Scipio said...

See? THAT's how deceitful and evil he is.

Mike Condon said...

I have the laugh going through my head now.

Word verification Antarxpf. What the Hooded Claw put in the Anthill Mob's chili.

Obviously a graduate of the school of villainy that taught its pupils not to simply put a bullet in your foe's head once you have them helpless, but rather place them in an overly-complicated death trap that would have made Rube Goldberg blush, then leave the scene and assume it's going to work. This time.

Aw, man! The first time in my life I'm right, and I don't even get anything for it. Now I'm gonna go sulk.

Plus, come on, he was voiced by Uncle Arthur from the Center Square himself, Mr. Paul Lynde! Paul Lynde rules.

Hoosier X said...

Dick Dastardly would eat this guy for lunch.

I scoff at your "Hooded Claw" and his alleged evilness!

Scoff! Scoff! Scoff!

The Fortress Keeper said...

Dick Dastardly was beaten by a pigeon. One freakin' pigeon.

It took an entire group of gangster midgets to take down the Hooded Claw. That's tough!!!

Hoosier X said...

HEY!

That pigeon was one tuff mofo!

The Hooded Claw never had to face the pigeon! He'd have wet his cloak.

So, who's tougher: Dick Dastardly or Ali ben Schemer?

Anonymous said...

Who cares? Killer Moth could whip the Hooded Claw, Dick Dastardly, and Ali Ben Schemer with one hand tied behind his back!

Mr Sinister said...

The Hooded Claw kinda acted like a rapist to his younger neice Penelope "Hey-ulp" Pitstop...
yet he was always beat by a Model-T full of 30's gangster-style little people.
Plus, he has no Hood or Claw anyway.
He's not just "evil"
His only scarcity of an origin is he wants to kill PP to get her super-inheritance she for some reason cant access openly.
Maybe she spends it trying to escape this maniac!

The Hooded Claw. No hood, and no claw. Here in the Future we expect more truth in advertising from our supervillains (even the Marvel ones).
