Disney Villain Countdown: 23/40
**Spoiler Alert! Some villains are revealed in plot twists, so if you haven't seen all the movies...**
McLeach scores pretty highly in this category. Despite being uneducated and pretty stupid, he manages to skirt the law and be a rather successful poacher. Idiot savant, perhaps? He's one sinister dude that keeps animals (and little boys) in cages.
Aaaaand we're back to the big man with a gun design that so heavily populated the bottom of the countdown. McLeach has the honor of being the only one to ALMOST make it to the top half of the countdown. He's pretty much a hybrid of Rourke and Crocodile Dundee.
Wit & Quotability
Wit? Not really. Quotability? You betcha.
This is where McLeach manages to surpass his fellow Big Man with Gun candidates. He's funny, nuanced, dynamic, and MEMORABLE. I stand by the fact that this guy is one of the most underrated antagonists of all Disney Eras.
High Scores! JOANNA IS THE BEST! Seriously, Joanna the Goanna manages to be more expressive with a few throaty noises than some of the most verbose Disney sidekicks. Maybe I'm biased toward all goannas, but Joanna herself is one of the most memorable and hilarious Disney characters period. Love.
Although McLeach doesn't have a "villain song" he sings multiple times in the film, if only to himself and Joanna. Plus they're FUNNY. I awarded just over neutral, but seriously this guy is such a winner...
