Villain Overview
Join me, Scooby Doo, and I will show you how to harness your destiny! And become the most important dog in the world!
~ Dick Dastardly to Scooby Doo.
Oh please, my friends call me... Dick.
~ Dick Dastardly.

Dick Dastardly is the main antagonist of the 2020 Warner Bros. animated film Scoob!, the first installment of the Hanna-Barbera Cinematic Universe. He is a ruthless and sadistic supervillain of the Blue Falcon who plots to rule the universe.

He was voiced by Jason Isaacs, who also played Lucius Malfoy and the Basilisk in the Harry Potter film franchise, Ra's al Ghul in Batman: Under the Red Hood, Satan in Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Colonel William Tavington in The Patriot, Admiral Zhao in Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Grand Inquisitor in Star Wars: Rebels, Captain Hook in the 2003 Peter Pan film, Dr. Heinreich Volmer in A Cure for Wellness, and SkekSo in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

Personality

Dastardly is shown to be cunning and charismatic, as he was able to fool the Mystery Inc. with the disguise of a female police officer in order to find Scooby. He is also arrogant, egomaniacal and very ambitious and power-hungry, due to his desires for world domination. Dick does have some good qualities however as he genuinely does love and care for his faithful companion and lackey Muttley who he went as far as risking his own life to rescue from the underworld.

Appearance

Dastardly is 6 feet tall with a hunched posture, pasty skin and has short tousled, black hair along with a thin pointed mustache and wears a dark purple trenchcoat, a black sweatshirt, black slacks, and boots.

All in all his appearance is a slightly updated version of his traditional appearance in Wacky Races, minus his traditional hat and racing goggles.

Biography

Backstory

Prior to the events of the film Dastardly was already an established criminal who worked alongside his faithful sidekick Muttley in all of his endeavors. In one of their schemes for fortune they devised a portal to the Underworld, hoping to steal all of the treasure belonging to Alexander the Great. When the machine was complete, Dick sent Muttley through the portal to get the treasure much to the latter's annoyance. Muttley returned shortly after holding several handfuls of treasure but found himself unable to go through the portal much to the shock of both he and Dick. Cerberus then came before Muttley and pulled him upward all the while Dick screamed Muttley's name in horror as the portal fell apart.

After this Dastardly made it his mission to set Muttley free and finish the job of taking the treasure.

Scoob!

In the beginning of the film, Dick Dastardly had sent small robots called "Rottens" to capture Shaggy and Scooby Doo at a bowling alley, although they failed to as the duo were beamed into Blue Falcon's ship the Falcon Fury. He and his minions soon followed and engaged in a chase, ordering the Rottens to attack; just as it is revealed that Dick is attempting to retrieve three skulls to revive the Greek monster Cerberus and open the gates of the Underworld, the villain used harpoons from his ship the Mean Machine to drag the Falcon Fury towards him, but Dee Dee Sykes commanded Dynomutt to send out the same beam that sucked up Shaggy and Scooby and put it on the reverse setting, and it pushes the ship away from the Mean Machine.

Inside of the Mean Machine, Dastardly is lamenting over the fact that Scooby got away. He becomes upset at the Rottens because, in his mind, they are not nearly as good as his last sidekick, Muttley, a dog, who is no longer with him. One of the Rottens apologizes for their failure, but that only upsets Dick more. He calls him a "suck-up" and, to prove a point to the other Rottens, removes his head and replaces it with the top of a vacuum cleaner.

Dastardly then traveled to Funland, an abandoned amusement park in Romania, and revealed to the recently arrived Scooby, Shaggy, Dee Dee, the Blue Falcon, and Dynomutt that he was the one who sent Blue Falcon the DM and that he has just retrieved the second skull from the Gobi Desert. He then proceeded to chase after the former two, having Shaggy be sent flying into a Ferris wheel seat after telling him it was not important at all and going after Scooby in an abandoned mirror house. In there, Dick convinces him to join and harness his destiny in Dastardly’s plans. However, Scooby refuses, just as before the former properly introduced himself out of one of the mirrors, to which Scooby called him “Rick”; Dick Dastardly, much to his chagrin, tried to correct the dog twice before becoming enraged on the third attempt. He then realized Scooby escaped from the mirror, to his dismay. Dastardly continued his pursuit as he chased after him and Dynomutt in bumper cars on a roller coaster along with Shaggy and Blue Falcon until Dee Dee deployed the beam and pulled the four into the Falcon Fury, leaving Dastardly to fall many feet into the ground; Dick is then alerted by the Rotten in the Mystery Machine of the existence of Fred, Daphne, and Velma.

He later tracked them down under the guise of a female cop and had the trio imprisoned in his airship; they however managed to get out thanks to one of the Rottens, a robot named Dusty because of his head being a vacuum cleaner, and secretly witnessed Dick Dastardly using the two skulls of Cerberus to reveal the location of the third and final skull in a place called Messick Mountain. Velma, Fred, and Daphne then over to a room with a communication radio, using it to deliver this information to the Falcon Fury before they get captured again by Dastardly. He reveals that he wants to open the gates to the Underworld so that he can rescue his dog Muttley, who was trapped there after they tried entering it to steal its riches, and that Dastardly needed Scooby Doo to do so due to being the descendent of Alexander the Great's dog companion Peritas.

Meanwhile, the Falcon Fury arrives near the Messick Mountain; Blue Falcon, Scooby, Dee Dee, and Dynomutt find the skull being guarded by Captain Caveman, but Dastardly arrives and takes it. He releases Shaggy, Fred, Daphne, and Velma before destroying the Falcon Fury, damaging the Mystery Machine, and then kidnapping Scooby as Dick departed in the Mean Machine.

Traveling to the Parthenon in Athens, Greece, Dastardly uses the three skulls to unveil the gate and Scooby's paw to open it, in which Cerberus escapes and begins causing havoc. Despite that, he managed to get inside the treasury in order to search for Muttley and Dick soon found him unconscious;Dick started apologizing in a lamentful way, only to hear his snickering and realize that Muttley's alive. The two rejoiced at seeing each other, and grabbed as much treasure as they can carry before running away from the Underworld.

However the Rottens, now good, capture Muttley and Dastardly and bring them to the Mystery Inc gang, all tied up. They unmask Dastardly, revealing him to be Simon Cowell; upon realizing that this makes no sense, Velma unmasks him again, revealing him to only be Dastardly. Dastardly and Muttley are then dragged away by Blue Falcon, Dee Dee, and Dynomutt to be imprisoned.

During the end credits, Dick Dastardly eventually broke out from prison with the help of Muttley.

Quotes

Nobody gets away from Dick Dastardly!
~ Dick Dastardly
I don't care about you. You are remarkably unimportant. It's the dog I need.
~ Dick Dastardly to Shaggy.

Trivia

  • The movie seems to suggest Dastardly escapes, this makes him likely to be a recurring antagonist in the HB shared universe - this befits Dastardly's status within pop-culture as one of the company's most well-known and beloved villains.
  • Scooby Doo has crossed over with Wacky Races before in cartoon format, this is the first time that they have crossed over with a premise of a full-scale shared universe (as crossovers in past were done mostly as one-time deals, with no real attempt to canonize the events beyond a single episode).
  • Dick Dastardly has been heavily implied to drink alcohol, specifically scotch, judging by Velma's examination on his single mustache strand.
  • Compared to the rather skinny and slim appearance he was originally depicted in Wacky Races, Dastardly instead has a huge, muscular build in the movie. He is even jokingly mentioned by his voice actor, Jason Isaacs, to have "a giant simian jaw and a huge kind of Mr. Incredible body."
  • This incarnation is the most sympathetic and competent so far.
  • In the scene where Velma, Fred, and Daphne viewed a portrait of Muttley, there is a poster of Dick Dastardly seen dressed in his original uniform from Wacky Races and holding a can of “Winchell Motor Oil”, referencing the late actor Paul Winchell (the original voice actor for Dick Dastardly).
