Red Sparks was a construction foreman at Acme Construction Company. He was in charge of Shaggy Rogers and Scooby-Doo when they were construction workers.

Physical appearance

Red is a Caucasian middle-aged male, with a hair missing from the top of his head, except for a few strands of hair combed over, with what remains, being a reddish-brown. He wears a beige construction worker's uniform with brown gloves and an orange hardhat.


He seemed rather mild-mannered as Shaggy's boss, though this only served to conceal his greed and involvement in safe-robberies. When Shaggy greeted him after he was caught and unmasked, he simply snarled.

Red Sparks unmasked

Sparks unmasked.

He was secretly committing safe robberies around town with his partner Jim Rivets, and the buildings they robbed were close to the construction site he worked at. They used a special light-gathering lens to spy on people opening their safes at night and learn their combinations. Since the building being built was high enough to obstruct their view of the safes, Red dressed up as the Specter of Ebenezer Crabbe to scare the other workers away from the site. However, the gang uncovered their scheme, and the two crooks were arrested.
