Physical appearance

Insert details here.


Little is known about Penrod Stillwall's personality, as he only appears in one episode of the original series. However, he is one of the series' few "villains" that is not trying to scare people off for malicious reasons, and he showed gratitude to Mystery Incorporated for helping him find his ancestor's treasure.

Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!

Season two

Penrod Stillwall shows his head

Penrod reveals himself.

He created the Headless Specter to scare people away because he was afraid someone would steal his family's treasure.

Mystery Inc. helped catch one such trespasser, with Fred Jones and Shaggy Rogers luring out yet another would-be phantom, trapping it under a pillar. It was discovered to be Penrod's greedy neighbor, Asa Shanks, who was after the treasure. He wanted to know how he could repay the gang for the help, with Shaggy only asking directions to the nearest pizza parlor.



  • Penrod was one of the first people to use a monster disguise for a noble reason, rather then a criminal one. This would be repeated by others including Velma Dinkley herself.
    • How noble he truly is is debatable as he jumped on who he thought was Scooby, Shaggy, and Velma hiding under a bed sheet (unless he knew they weren't there), and also tried to knock Shaggy off his balloon. But then again he presumed they were thieves and thus was likely less restrained in how he was dealing with them.
  • Penrod's head was concealed in his shirt as the Headless Specter, which would make it impossible for him to see.
    • Logic-defying effects of disguises are so common in the Scooby-Doo universe that they have their own category.
  • Penrod doesn't mention making the balloon look like a ghost, but presumably he did that, too.
  • Clearly minutes have past between the time it took the gang to catch Penrod and Asa, yet the former managed to change into a sweater by the time of the latter's capture. Either this is an animation mistake or he was wearing one underneath his costume.
  • When Penrod receives the bag of treasure, he's wearing the gloves of the Headless Specter.
