Professor Wayne was a marine researcher at Oceanland.
Professor Wayne is a Caucasian male with brown hair. He wears a lab coat over a light blue shirt and a dark blue tie. He also wears glasses.
Professor Wayne appeared to be good-natured, thanking the gang for rushing the frozen caveman. This was only a front to his conniving and deceitful nature.
He froze a dummy caveman in a block of ice on an old fishing boat, and then set it adrift knowing it float to Oceanland on the prevailing current it was on.
Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!
After Mystery Inc. fished the caveman out of the sea and onto the beach, they took it to Oceanland, where Professor Wayne could resume his scheme. The caveman was stored in the arctic room, where Professor Wayne later secretly melted the ice with an electric heater. He then dressed up as the caveman, making it appear that it had come to life, resulting in the disappearance of himself and Ingstrom. With Ingstrom out of the way, he would return claiming to have escaped from the caveman. It was revealed that he was after Ingstrom's invention. The gang was able to catch the caveman and reveal Professor Wayne's intentions, leaving him to be taken by the sheriff.
- Professor Wayne looks uncannily similar to Dr. Jekyll (also a culprit) from two episodes ago; they're also voiced by John Stephenson.
- Professor Wayne was the first villain to actually call the gang, "meddling kids", though previous villains used similar terms such as "blasted kids".
