Snidely Whiplash is the archenemy of Dudley Do-Right in the Dudley Do-Right of the Mounties segments of the animated television series The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show (1959–64) conceived by American animator Jay Ward.[1]

The character was voiced by Hans Conried in the original cartoon series. Alfred Molina played Whiplash in the 1999 live action film version Dudley Do-Right.[1]

Whiplash is the stereotypical villain in the style of stock characters found in silent movies and earlier stage melodrama, wearing black clothing and a top hat and with a handlebar moustache. Whiplash's henchman, Homer, usually wears a tuque. In the cartoon's opening segments, Whiplash is seen tying Nell Fenwick to a railroad track. He is the antithesis of Do-Right, who is the archetype of goodness and a Royal Canadian Mounted Policeman. On one occasion Whiplash and Do-Right changed hats; Do-Right became the criminal supervillain and Whiplash became the RCMP hero!
