Dr. Screwball Jones is a villain that debuted in Season 2 in the episode, The Boy Wander. In which he steals pillows all around the universe to create the Tickle Machine, and has a fight with Wander he also somehow got out of the Tickle Machine after that time.

As for his past he had some unknown connection to Wander, and he is now Wander's nemesis, also he is voiced by Weird Al Yankovic.[1]

Physical appearance[]

He has a banana-shaped head and wears a pair of Groucho Marx glasses with a mustache whose ends apparently act like his arms. Dr. Screwball Jones also wears a top hat, polka-dot bow tie, doctor's head mirror, and a clown wig.


Screwball Jones is similar to Wander, in that he wants to make everyone in the universe happy. However, he is maniacal and plots to force everyone in the universe to be happy by taking over it, which clashes against Wander's more care giving nature. He is fond of puns and is able to create them with ease. He is very insistent of his doctoral status and is able to realize when a situation is ironic. He admires polka music and is quite fond of the accordion. He is unable to resist a good gag and will not pass up a chance to use it to make as many puns as possible, even if he is on the verge of victory.
