The Bald Zomble is a recurring villain in the Scooby-Doo franchise, appearing in the original animated series and showing up as a cameo in later series and films. There have been multiple zombies and zombie costumes in Scooby-Doo, but this one is the most well-known.
The Zombie has a pale complexion, pointed ears, and blood-red eyes. His clothing is tattered and ragged. In the original series he appears lean and lanky, while in the live-action films he seems to be more brutish and hulking.
The Zombie's entire personality is calculated to scare people away from the surrounding area; a stereotypical zombie figure, he is ghoulish and mute, shuffling around in a menacing manner. Although the person inside the Zombie outfit is intellingent and calculating, the Zombie itself is acted to appear dimwitted and slow, under the service of the Witch. In the live-action version, the Zombie is alive instead of being a man in a costume; he appears manic and mischievious, laughing after vomiting on people and attempting to drive a truck.
Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!
He first appeared in the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? episode Which Witch is Which? as the secondary antagonist. Although seemingly the menacing henchman of a swamp witch, in reality the Zombie was the disguise of a man named Zeke. He and Zeb Perkins (who dressed up as the Witch) used the costumes to scare away intruders as they searched for a submerged armored bank truck that they had crashed into the swamp.

Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters UnleashedThe Zombie was one of the secondary antagonists of the 2004 live-action movie, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. It was a costume at the Coolsonian Criminology Museum, and was stolen off-screen. The Zombie was later found in the Monster Hive where he was accidentally brought to life by Scooby and Shaggy, along with The Miner 49er, The Ghost of Captain Cutler, and The Tar Monster.
The Zombie goes on a rampage through the city with Pterodactyl Ghost, and is picked up on a live news feed. The news reporter ask The Zombie if he has anything to say for himself, and the Zombie vomits green slime at the news reporter and laughs.
The Zombie along with Miner 49er, the Skeleton Men, and the Tar Monster are then ordered by the Masked Figure to return to the Monster Hive to stop Scooby-Doo and the gang.
