King Salazar, The Pushy is the main antagonist of the direct-to-video special Wakko's Wish. He also has Thaddeus Plotz, Ralph T. GuardSquit, Pesto, and Bobby as his former assassins.

Salazar was voiced by the late Paxton Whitehead.


He is powerful, mean, ruthless, selfish, murderous, aggressive, dangerous, stubborn, power-hungry and greedy.


King Salazar was the ruler and dictator of the Kingdom of Ticktockia. He invaded Warnerstock in a hostile take over while the kingdom of Warnerstock was struggling for power with itself, due to the death of their king, Sir Willam the Good. He sent the royal children, Yakko, Wakko and Dot, to the orphanage in Acme Falls to assure his rule over his newly forcefully taken kingdom. He then overtaxed the citizens making them miserable to solve his bankruptcy. Years later, Salazar wanted to touch the wishing star first. But when he realizes that Yakko, Wakko, and Dot were still alive, he charged Thaddeus Plotz and Ralph to kill them. When they failed to, Salazar arrested them. When Wakko touched the star, Salazar was defeated.

In the epilogue, The Warners took his place as rulers of the kingdom after the hospital tracked down the Warners' birth certificates, which proved that Yakko, Wakko and Dot were of royal hertige. After the Warners became the new rulers of Warnerstock, Salazar was kicked out of the kingdom (literally) by the Warners and attacked by his own dogs as punishment.


  • King Salazar's name is a pun on the words "salad bar".[1] However, there is also a dictator named Salazar who was the dictator of Portugal from 1932 to 1968.
