Sweeney Todd is the main antagonist of the 1846-47 story The String of Pearls written by unknown authors.


Sweeney Todd was a London barber who killed his customers by throwing them down a trapdoor and breaking their necks. If they survived, he would 'polish them off' by slitting their throats with a razor. He and his partner-in-crime Mrs. Lovett made them into meat pies and sold them for money.


  • This version of Sweeney Todd is regarded as a Complete Monster whereas the other versions of Sweeney Todd are given more sympathetic qualities in later retellings of the story.
