The Phantom Blot

The Phantom Blot is one of the first villains that tormented Mickey Mouse. The two have had numerous battles over the years. He has been seen in many different things including TV shows such as 'Mickey Mouse Works,' 'House of Mouse,' and 'DuckTales.' Also after a long absence he is back and plays a huge part in the video game, Epic Mickey. The Phantom Blot can be mainly found in comic books and old cartoon shorts. More recently he can be found in a 'DuckTales' and 'Darkwing Duck' intertwined comic book called 'Dangerous Currency.' He can be found in other rare merchandise like toys, clothes, buttons/pins, and Disney art.

It is unclear where the Phantom Blot has lived but in 'Epic Mickey' he makes his residency in Wasteland and wants to be ruler of it. The only known relative of the Phantom Blot is his daughter Phantom Brat. Phantom Blot has many allies on his side including Madam Mim, Beagle Boys, The Mad Doctor, Magica De Spell, and the rest of the evil Disney villains. His enemies include Mickey Mouse and the rest of the fab five, Darkwing Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, and the rest of the forces of good.

Phantom Blot is a very dark and mysterious figure, he wears a dark cloak and the only thing you can see on him are his smile and his eyes which vary from white, yellow, and red depending on which comic book, TV show, or video game it is. His black hood hides his secret identity, which was revealed at one point: he resembles a evil faced goofy with a moustache. Phantom Blot has been one of Mickey's most challenging rivals of all time.

He has been voiced by Frank Welker, and also John O'Hurley. He was animated by the group of Merrill De Maris, Ted Thwaites, Bill Wright, and Floyd Gottfredson.

I have researched to see if Phantom Blot has ever been in the theme parks but found nothing. I would love to see him in the parks, even if it is just during Halloween time since I am a huge fan of all the Disney villains. He is a fantastic yet forgotten character.
