|~ Mr. Swackhammer|
In Space Jam
Although he is the main antagonist, his role in the film is small. Mr. Swackhammer is the evil alien owner of Moron Mountain who realizes that no one is returning to Moron Mountain and that his business is failing. He decides to send the Nerdlucks to capture the Looney Tunes to perform their comedic acts in his amusement park, hoping that it could bring back customers as his newest attractions and save his business from foreclosure. This results in a basketball game and Mr. Swackhammer later comes to Earth to watch the Monstars and the Looney Tunes play basketball as the Monstars coach.
Michael Jordan makes a deal with him that if the Monstars win, Mr. Swackhammer would spare the Looney Tunes in exchange for his own freedom as his newest attraction in Moron Mountain. He readily accepts it, thinking of the conceivable possibilities of Jordan as his newest attraction, playing basketball with his customers while chained up meaning he would always lose no matter what he did.
However, the Monstars were lost to the Looney Tunes resulting in Mr. Swackhammer being furious and aggressive because of the loss. The Monstars told Michael Jordan that they were afraid of Mr. Swackhammer until they realize they had grown so much bigger than him. They turned on Mr. Swackhammer and decided to strap him to a rocket sending him straight to the moon and possibly back to Moron Mountain and never heard of again.
Mr. Swackhammer is known for being extremely destructive, sinister, immoral, conceited, persuasive, short-tempered, argumentative, greedy, cruel, desperate, manipulative, self-centered, arrogant, selfish, and overall evil in nature. He is also very vituperative, opprobrious, abusive, and nasty to the Nerdlucks. One of his most contemptible and outrageous plans is when he makes the Monstars win the basketball game by any means necessary.
Mr. Swackhammer is a short, obese green alien dog with blue spots, purple lips, yellow eyes with lavender irises, pointy ears, a pink shirt, blue sandals, a magenta suit, and a red rose on his suit.
- He is very similar to Huxley from the 1999 theatrical feature-length film, The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland.
- Both are greedy businessmen who have the race of insectoid villains as their henchmen.
