The Dread Baron is the leader, along with Mumbly, of the Really Rottens. The pair often devised plans to cheat their way to victory and fail in the process. The Dread Baron's name is a pun of the Red Baron, an imfamous World War I pilot. He also is always seen in a WW1 German pilot's uniform. The Dread Baron has a great resemblance to Dick Dastardly . It was unknown why Dread Baron and Mumbly replaced Dick Dastardly and Muttley though rumours speculate that they were not completely owned by Hanna-Barbera and therefore were not allowed to be used in the Laff-A-Lympics leading to the creation of the Dread Baron and the return of Mumbly. The pair returned in Yogi Bear and the Magical Flight of the Spruce Goose as the main villains in which Dread Baron had Dick Dastardly's voice and his plane from Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines.
