Dr. Phileus Phibes is the main antagonist of the Scooby-Doo TV series, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get a Clue. He is a evil scientist obsessed with becoming immortal.


As time progressed he became more and more high strung from the combination of his henchmen's idiocy and the repeated interference of the dog (Scooby-Doo) and hippie boy (Shaggy).


Early life

In his youth, Phibes conducted a highly dangerous experiment with electricity in order to achieve his dream, which cost him his left hand (he wears a prosthetic that seems to function as a high-tech Swiss Army knife) and made him a living lightning rod—hence, he seldom ventures outdoors, because his condition will quickly cause storm clouds to gather regardless of the weather.
