Physical appearance

Insert details here.


He is abrasive and critical of poor usage of the word "like," for example.


Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

Season one

He did a lecture at Darrow University on his new book, but was only asked about the ones by Prof. H.P. Hatecraft, whom he criticized. Velma Dinkley was a big fan, and she brought a big stack of books for him to autograph. She got a favorable reception because he knew her mother and he kindly told her that "Jinkies" was not a word.

Mr. Ellison's comments about the books of Hatecraft earned him an attack by one of its characters, Char Gar Gothakon. After this, he criticized Shaggy's improper use of the word "like" before storming away.

Later he and Hatecraft decided to collaborate on a book about fans and how monstrous they are.

Later, it was revealed that Mr. Ellison had become a teacher at Darrow University. He was absent at a misanthrope convention at the time of the Obliteratrix attack.


After Mystery Incorporated destroyed the Evil Entity during Nibiru and reset the timeline, Harlan Ellison was the only one besides them that remembered what happened and became the new "Mr. E", revealing that he also knew everything about them. After getting a job as a teacher of sub-nuclear sciences at Miskatonic University, he enrolled the gang (even Scooby-Doo), with the gang deciding to take the Mystery Machine across the country and solving mysteries along the way.



  • In real-life, Ellison died on June 28, 2018 at the age of 84.
