Jeremiah "Old Man" Wickles is an ex-convict who was trying to go straight by opening a mining-themed amusement park in Coolsville.

Physical appearance

Wickles is an elderly Caucasian man, with balding white hair. He always wears a coat and a hat when he goes out, except in his meeting with his lawyers, where he wore a red jacket, a pink shirt and white pants.


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


Early life

He was incarcerated for illegal acts as the Black Knight Ghost. During his time as a prisoner, he was roommates with Jonathan Jacobo, a former scientist, and hated him deeply.

Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed

Wickles seemed to have given up on his villainous ways. However, the gang assumed he was behind the theft of the costumes in the Coolsonian Criminology 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 Blake freed them using her makeup kit, and the gang split up to find clues. Fred Jones and the girls found a book of monster reincarnations in his library, along with randomonium dust everywhere on the floor, which roused their suspicions even more before they encountered the Black Night Ghost. Shaggy Rogers and Scooby-Doo found Wickles in the Coolsville Mining Company thanks to a ticket to a nightclub called the Faux Ghost. Although he claimed 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 had only 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.[1]
