The Tar Monster was the disguise of Mr. Stoner.

Physical appearance

The Tar Monster was a large, green-eyed Cyclops made of simulated tar.


He basically just growled and roared as he chased after any intruders.

Powers and abilities

The original version only had the ability to swim through tar, which was because it had a diving suit underneath. The real monster version envelops its victims in its fluid tar body and either constricts or suffocates them.

Stoner unmasked.

Stoner dressed up as the Tar Monster because he wanted to scare people away so he could have the treasure of a lost city for himself.

Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase

The last level of Eric Staufer's video game, which the gang had been sent to, featured a cyber version of the Tar Monster, among other old monsters the gang had captured in the past, who were all crooks in real life, but were real in the video game.[1]
