We've got to have...Money!
~ Lickboot's famous quote
Lickboot is the secondary antagonist in Tom and Jerry: The Movie. He is the lawyer and boyfriend of Aunt Pristine Figg, and they both want to capture Robyn Starling so they can have her father's inheritance money.

He was voiced by the late Tony Jay, who also played Judge Claude FrolloShere Khan and Megabyte

Role in Tom and Jerry: The Movie

He and Figg are obsessed with money to the point that they sing a song about their greed, and Lickboot is now best known for this line: "We've GOT to have...MONEY.".

In order to do so, they work with Dr. Applecheek to get rid of Tom and Jerry, but the three manage to escape the villains. Eventually, he, Fredinand, and Figg corners her in the cottage. Robyn tries to resist, but she unintentionally set the cottage ablaze in process. Lickboot tries to convince her to go safety in vain, and is forced to escape. Unfortunately, he and Figg tripped by Fredinand, and the three fell to the boat. The boat activates and goes haywire in process, and moves away, likely to their demise (the boat likely crashes); but, if this doesn't happen, probably, has arrested by the police for trying to capture Robyn Starling.



  • An interesting scene for Lickboot was at the climax when the cottage was burning down. There, he seemed genuinely concerned about Robin's safety, telling her she needed to get out of the cabin before it burned down. And while Figg was content to leave Robin to die, Lickboot was more reluctant.
  • Although he is the secondary antagonist, Lickbook turned out to be more dangerous than Aunt Figg.
  • Even though the movie was harshly received, Lickboot had unanimous praise, due to his catchphrase, "We've got to have money!"
