Baptiste was Professor Kruger's assistant and dressed up as the Snow Beast so he could cover his tracks when he discovered oil. When Scooby and the gang came to visit the professor, he warned them to leave, a warning they did not heed.
Beside the Snow Beast, Baptiste also disguised his oil derricks as totem poles. When Professor Kreuger became suspicious, he used the Snow Beast to chase off the Eskimos and capture the professor. His plan was foiled when Mystery Inc was able to follow his giant footprints and lure the beast onto slippery ice.
