Early life

This costume was used by a criminal who was caught. The costume was donated to the Coolsonian Criminology Museum.

Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed

When Miner 49er was transformed into a real monster, he was shown to breathe fire, unlike his man-in-a-mask counterpart. Scooby and Shaggy found this out when they ran into him after Velma gave them the control panel. They used Scooby's flatulence to blow his fire back at him. Shaggy thought he got rid of him when he blocked his fire with the power of Scooby's flatulence; however, he is later seen, implying that he was not defeated. This was confirmed in the showdown with the final monsters (Pterodactyl Ghost, himself, Zombie, Tar Monster and the Skeleton Men). He was last seen turning into dust along with the Zombie once the control panel was brought to the base.
