Stanley Livingston (Tennessee Tuxedo)
Stanley Livingston is a supporting character and antagonist from the obscure 1960's cartoon, Tennessee Tuxedo and His Tales. He is the director of the Megapolis Zoo (the home of the titular character and Chumley) and usually orders Tennessee Tuxedo and his sidekick Chumley around and usually punishes them at the end due to Tennessee’s plans not going according to plan.
He was voiced by Mort Marshall.
Why He Sucks
- He is very short-tempered and mean-spirited towards Tennessee Tuxedo and Chumley, as he usually bosses them around.
- His voice is extremely annoying and grating, especially when he screams.
- He usually doesn't get punished for his actions in most episodes he appears in, showing his Karma Houdini status.
- He even acts immature as well, even though he's a zoo director.
- He overreacts way too much towards Tennessee and Chumley's actions and keeps yelling and screaming all the time to the point that it gets annoying after a while.
- While Stanley does have a reason to punish Tennessee and Chumley, some of his punishments he gives them can be too harsh on them such as having them get hit in the face by softballs in a carnival game in "Aztec Antics" and threatening to skin Tennessee Tuxedo a couple of times, which could be seen as animal abuse.
- He also makes poor decisions at times, such as running in front of Tennessee Tuxedo while riding his scooter in one episode, which runs him over, and chasing after a train that Tennessee Tuxedo and Chumley are on in another, which causes him to get hit by the train.
- He is way too strict and overprotective of his belongings.
- He doesn’t seem to care about what the zoo animals want and always denies them, showing how stubborn he is.
- He also acts like a nervous wreck at times whenever something goes wrong.
- He is also a huge buzzkill as he doesn’t want Tennessee or the other zoo animals to have fun.
- He sometimes laughs or smiles whenever he punishes Tennessee Tuxedo and Chumley which shows how sadistic he is to them.
- He does have a reason to get mad at Tennessee Tuxedo most of the time and serves a purpose to the show.
- He doesn’t punish Tennessee Tuxedo all the time; in fact, he congratulated Tennessee and the gang for trimming the Christmas tree in the episode "Tree Trimmers" even when he told them not to.
- He also once received comeuppance in "Wreck of a Record" where he was forced to eat his hat.
- There were some moments where can be funny at times.
