Zoinks! It's old man Baumgartner!!

It’s funny how pictures can jog old memories, oddities of the past, blah, blah, blah, whatever.

Anyhoo, not too long ago I stumbled across this photo of former Judge Richard Baumgartner (on the KNS website taken by Michael Patrick).

It reminded me of something. Then I remembered: Scooby-Doo. Or a Scooby-Doo bad guy. So, I Googled it. And up pops “The Creeper.” And he’s exactly who was stuck in my head. Cause, you know, you might look like the creeper after eating 30 pain killers a day, having sex in your judge chambers with your pill supplier and then taking the bench while pilled out of your mind and screwing up (potentially) thousands of cases.

Remember how whenever Scooby and the gang would unmask the villain? They’d be like: “Zoinks, it’s old man Jenkins.” Heh.

Well, apparently, the Creeper was old man Baumgartner. Yeah, I couldn’t resist.

Old man Jenkins? Really? It had to be "Jenkins" ?!?!?

As you say . . . "Heh"

Ha ha. Sorry about that. But it really was a line in an episode.

Oddly enough, there appears to have never been a villain named MR. Jenkins in the Scooby Doo universe:

...just a Mrs. Jenkins, if this list is to be believed.

I won't tell my wife you said that, Brian.

Unless her name is Susan, Ray, I think you're good. (And if it IS Susan, just tell her she accomplished what no male Jenkins ever could in the Scooby Doo universe. You'll be fine.)

Hey, Donila, did you know if SOPA/PIPA passed the good folks at Hannah-Barbara could petition to take down SFtP because of that pic? Now THAT'S creepy.
