"Revenge against the humans, revenge against you! Yes, I got a whole bunch of revenges all piling up and it's not pretty!"
Dr. Blowhole is an evil dolphin scientist and supervillain. He is the main antagonist of The Penguins of Madagascar.
Dr. Blowhole first appeared in "Dr. Blowhole's Revenge", though it is clear that the penguins have known him for a long time. In "Roomies", Dr. Blowhole sent a walrus named Rhonda to the Central Park Zoo to steal Kowalski's plasma cutter, but the villain himself is never seen.
Dr. Blowhole makes his first full appearance in the 23 minute special, "Dr. Blowhole's Revenge", wherein he serves as the titular main antagonist, though it is clear that the penguins have known him for a long time. It begins in a flashback where he trapped the penguins in his lair and shot lasers at them, until Rico threw a cork in his blowhole and sent the evil dolphin falling backwards into the water with his segway. However, Blowhole quickly emerged from the water in a dome, and swore that Skipper has not seen the last of him and he will have revenge before he initiated the self destruct sequence and made his escape
In the past, Dr. Blowhole went under the name "Flippy" and performed tricks for entertainment for humans in a marine park on Coney Island. His signature trick was jumping through "The Ring of Fire", a fiery hoop. At one point, Flippy was humiliated in "The Ring of Fire" (it is implied that this is what caused the robotic replacement on his right eye). This turned Flippy evil and he later escaped the park and renamed himself "Dr. Blowhole". Dr. Blowhole was then driven with a desire to conquer the world to get revenge on the humans.
As revenge on the humans, Dr. Blowhole sets about to create his own "Ring of Fire", which are a series of towers designed to melt the polar ice caps to flood the Earth. This was destroyed by King Julien, who was acting as a double agent.
Dr. Blowhole returns sometime later to apprehend Skipper and wipe his memory with his Mind Jacker. Leaving Skipper on a deserted island, Blowhole uses his memories to locate the HQ. A series of mishaps, and unexplained singing due to a hypnosis from a rogue MP3 player, allows Blowhole to nearly take control of New York City. However, he is once again foiled by the Penguins. His own memory is wiped away by Skipper, and he is forced to resume his former role as "Flippy".
It is revealed in "The Penguin Who Loved Me" that Doris the dolphin (Kowalski's love interest) is his sister and his real name is Francis (Which Red One, one of his lobster minions, laughed off). He only created the name Dr. Blowhole since it earned him more respect.
His new residence was a place called Seaville in which Doris wanted to liberate him from. Blowhole had been in Seaville ever since the events of "The Return of the Revenge of Dr. Blowhole" and happily performing shows for the visitors, believing that he actually is "Flippy" since he is still under the influence of the Mind Jacker in said episode above. After his mind is restored, and his base is destroyed, he was still swimming in ocean with Parker above him, threatening him if he don't give his paychecks. Based on what Skipper said, Blowhole is possibly scheming to make his new base and return as "Arch-enemies always return."
Dr. Blowhole is an evil, devious, and vengeful villain. He is described as being "pure evil" by Private. Out of the four "pen-gyu-ins", Blowhole hates Skipper the most. He has "skin that's surprisingly pleasant to touch", and a surprisingly beautiful singing voice for "villainous scum." Dr. Blowhole is as smart as Kowalski, or at least close to his intelligence.
Dr. Blowhole seems to be capable of creating admirable hi-tech gadgets-at least by Kowalski's standards. He also can control his segway scooter with considerable ease. He made a lot of inventions, most notably the "Chrome Claw", a giant mutant lobster, and the "Mind Jacker". He also invented a large tractor beam to bring the moon closer to earth (Though it's noted in the episode, as a rental), and also created the "Diabologizer".
Most importantly, as seen in his second appearance, he has the singing ability of an angel. Also, in his first appearance, Blowhole proved capable of holding his own against the combat-trained Skipper in a short physical fight.
