Chairface Chippendale is a tuxedo-clad, suave supervillain from the Tick Universe who has a small wooden chair for a head. His name, using the "-face" suffix, along with several of his henchmen are a reference to similarly-nicknamed mobster-type villains in Dick Tracy and other comics of that era. In one episode of the animated series, Chairface attempts to write his name onto the surface of the moon with a powerful laser. He only manages to write the letters "CHA" from "CHAIR", and even then only part of the "A", before he is thwarted by the Tick. Later, the "C" is destroyed by the Tick as part of a partially successful mission to return the moon to the way it used to be. As a running gag, the "HA" remains inscribed on the moon throughout the rest of the episodes of the series. Chairface's logo appears to be a parody of the Rescue Rangers logo from "Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers". His last name, Chippendale, references 18th century furniture maker Thomas Chippendale, perhaps the most famous furniture maker in history.
Chairface originally had Angus McGuire as his own personal arch nemesis, but Angus was eventually supplanted by The Tick. He has had many run-ins with The Mighty Blue Arachnid of Justice in the Cartoon and the Comic. On his last appearance in the comic, he had become the king of Chippendalia, a small suburban principality in New Jersey. Chairface maintained a large assortment of henchmen, the most notable of which was Professor Chromedome, and the similarly-deformed but incredibly strong Dean, who had a large wing nut as a head.
Chairface has a son named Stoolface Chippendale who attends Flobie High School in The City.
