GET THAT DOG!!!
~ Dr. Calico
Are you crying? Is it because I kidnapped your daddy? Or because I hurt your precious little dog?
~ Calico to Penny.

Dr. Calico is the main antagonist of Bolt, a TV show within Disney's 48th full-length animated feature film with the same name. He also appears in the short Super Rhino, as well as Bolt: The Videogame. At the first glance, Dr. Calico looked like actual villain, but in reality he just an unnamed actor with impressive acting skills that so realistic that Bolt thinks he's really a villain and promises to get him for real.

Biography

In Bolt TV Series Within The Film

He's a charismatic evil genius with a mutated green cat-like right eye. No explanation is given about his eye, although it implies his affinity for owning cats.

Calico is the head of an unnamed high-tech crime syndicate whose goal is to achieve world domination. The standard members of this organization are armed with electric gloves, laser guns, and protective motorcycle helmets. The elite fighters of this organization are called agents, who are armed with concealable high-tech weapons, and considerably more training than standard henchmen.

Despite his resources, the doctor requires the help of a greater intelligence to achieve his goals. He kidnapped the father of Bolt's owner, Penny, although he could not defeat the will of the doctor, who seemed impervious to his means of persuasion. From the way these two talked to each other, it is implied they at least knew each other at some point.

In order to gain the cooperation of the scientist, Dr. Calico tried to capture Penny. But his every attempt to do so was thwarted by Bolt, whom Penny's father had given super powers to protect her. The scientist's amazing knack for genetic mutation might have had something to do with Dr. Calico's plans for world domination, which might have been why he was interested in him.

Dr. Calico does not seem at all intimidated by Bolt's powers, nor do his henchmen. Although, judging by the countless pawns he hurls against Bolt, Dr. Calico might have armies to spare. His organization might not be just a syndicate, but an entire revolutionary community.

At the beginning of one plot arc, after Penny had necessary reconstructive surgery which altered her facial features, the subsequent open abduction of her and Bolt by aliens not only revealed that Dr. Calico had a hatred for extra-terrestrials but implied a potential—if possibly temporary—truce and alliance with the heroes.

Real Life in the film

The backstory of actor whom played Calico in Bolt TV Show in the film is not revealed, nor even what is his actual name.

The actor however, unaware with the fact that Bolt hate him and seeing him as actual villain because delusions that his employers put on the dog.

While managed to escape during the fire when the shooting went wrong at the climax of the film, the actor's later fate is unclear. As the show where he normally played Dr. Calico had grim future due to it began to lose audiences, he would likely forced to move on another projects.
