Professor Heiny is a scientist who runs an Institute of Monster Research. The institute is high up on a mountaintop in the European village of Schnitzel. He investigates a strange phenomenon which is turning hikers into clowns, and calls on his old associate Freakazoid for help.
The primary function of the Institute is to zap monsters; Heiny has no interest in studying them, since there is nothing to know (besides the fact that they can light candles with their noses). Freak and Professor Heiny share a passion for a song called "Ooey Gooey."
Professor Hiney collects clown paintings, and owns a Red Skelton original. As a kid, he had a Medusa watch that could turn people to stone.
He is voiced by Ed Gilbert.
"Ooey Gooey" Lyrics
Ooey Gooey was a worm
A gooey worm was he
He sat upon a railroad track
A train he did not see
