This article is about the character from the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode, Bedlam in the Big Top. For the character based on him in Scooby-Doo! Who's Watching Who?, see Sylvester Sweetsugar.

Mr. Barnstorm is a ringmaster.

Physical appearance

Mr. Barnstorm is a Caucasian male with brown hair. Typical of a circus ringmaster, he wears a tuxedo with tails, including a green coat with dark green lapels, tight fitting dark green pants, white tuxedo shirt, and lavender waistcoat. The ensemble is completed with black knee-high boots, a black bowtie, and a black top hat with a lavender band.


Mr. Barnstorm is a good natured and dedicated circus performer, but he also superstitious. Like many of the circus performers he employs, his superstition leads him to accept the clear acts of sabotage against his circus as the work of a supernatural jinx called the "Ghost Clown" that can doom circuses to failure.


Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!

Season one

His circus was in trouble because it was menaced by a hypnotic ghost clown, who was actually Harry the Hypnotist out for revenge against Mr. Barnstorm for firing him for stealing and sending him to prison. The gang was able to catch the Ghost Clown, and save Mr. Barnstorm's circus.
