Miner 49er
Hank (MYOB) unmasked

The Miner 49er is a villain in the Scooby-Doo Franchise.

Physical appearance[]

He was a Caucasian male, with a large grey beard along with a large grey mustache. He wore a brown cowboy hat, which covered the top half of his face. Only his nose was left visible. His great height actually came from Hank wearing stilts. He wore brown pants and a long-sleeve blue top, over which he wore an open black waistcoat.



Mine your own Business[]

The Miner 49er made his first appearance in the Scooby-Doo franchise in the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode Mine Your Own Business. He was haunting a western ghost town called Gold City. He was the disguise of a man named Hank who used the disguise to scare off employers and guests of the Gold City Guest Ranch, so he could buy the land cheap from the owner, Big Ben, for the oil underneath.

Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed[]

Miner 49er LIVE

His first movie appearance was in the 2004 live-action movie Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed where he was one of the supporting antagonists. He is seen at the monster hive and Shaggy Rogers and Scooby-Doo accidentally transformed him into an real monster using carbon composition and Pandemonium, along with Ghost of Captain Cutler, The Tar Monster and the Zombie. He breathed fire and was outsmarted by Shaggy and Scooby-Doo using Scooby's gas to repel his flames scaping from his mouth. When Miner 49er was transformed into a real monster he, unlike his man-in-a-mask counterpart, breathed fire. Scooby and Shaggy found this out when they ran into him after Velma gave them the control panel. They used Scooby's flatulence to blow his fire back at him. Shaggy thought he got rid of him when he blocked his fire with the power of Scooby's flatulence, however he is later seen, implying that he was not defeated. This was confirmed in the showdown with the final monsters (Pterodactyl Ghost, himself, Zombie, Tar Monster and the Skeleton Men). He was last seen turning into dust along with the Zombie once the control panel was brought to the base.
