He seems to be grumpy and agressive to people. He seems to be suffering from early dementia as he thought bushes were talking to him.

Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed
Wickles seems to have given up on his villainous ways. However, the gang assumed he was behing the theft of the costumes in the Coolsonium Museum to be turned into real monsters. They went into his mansion to investigate, and ended up trapped in a giant sphere-like cage along with other trespassers in the basement. Daphne freed them using her makeup kit, and the gang splits up to find clues. Fred and the girls found a book of monster reincarnations in his library, along randomonium dust everywhere on the floor, which roused their suspicions even more before they encoundered the Black Night Ghost. Shaggy and Scooby found him in the Coolsville Mining Town thanks to a ticket of a nightclub called "The Faux Ghost". Although he claims to be innocent, Shaggy and Scooby followed Wickles into a lab where they found the Monster Hive. Eventually, his innocence was proven when Fred and the girls discovered that Wickles has been planning to turn the mining town into an amusement park for children.
When Jacobo was arrested once more, Wickles scolded him for taking the lead in My Fair Lady and stealing his tator tots while they were in the prison cafeteria.
