Earl[1] (also called Dopey Black Hat[2]) is a "clone" of Black Hat created by Monstrous Black Hat via the Evil ray in "The Perception of Evil". He moves and expresses himself in a silly, almost deranged manner, and he seems to only be barely able to speak anything resembling cognizant speech.

In the Orientation Videos for Villains series, he is generally seen with a fish.


Earl's appearance is similar to that of Black Hat. He is shorter than him, and with skinnier arms. His skin is also a brighter shade of purple. His hat is droopy, and patched together with a bandage and quilt patches, while a magnifying glass serves as a monocle of some sort. Instead of a dress shirt and tie, Earl wears a flannel under his coat. His teeth are round, and his gloves and sleeves are torn.

  • During the wide shot of the lab in "The Perception of Evil", he is seen eating the sandwich previously created by Dr. Flug.
  • Demencia wears his hat as part of her "disguise" in "Wearing Evil". However she got the hat, she must have given it back to him, because, as seen in "The Lost Cases of Ooo", he has his hat again.
