Mr. Skullhead is a minor character featured in the Good Idea, Bad Idea segments of Animaniacs. He originated as a character on Tiny Toon Adventures, where he was a character created by Elmyra Duff based on the gerbil skull in her bow. The character was inspired by a doodle made by writer, Sherri Stoner.

He has a grandfather, a father, a mother, a little sister, a little brother, an aunt named Bertha, and a cousin named Penny. In his Good Idea, Bad Idea cartoons, he and his relatives endure a lot of slapstick injuries to show viewers what not to do. He has never spoken.
