The Bully Brothers

3 Best Friends To The Rescue!

The Hooded Claw has two minions, the Bully Brothers, who are the only visible characters who know that Sylvester Sneekly is, in fact, the Hooded Claw. The Bully Brothers would normally do whatever he told them to do. However, there have been occasions in which the Bully Brothers would ask if they could do something else, such as "We want to go to Coney Island" or "While we're here, may we look for acorns?" Comments such as these would annoy the Hooded Claw and he'd threaten them, which would always get the brothers back to helping him get rid of Penelope.

The Narrator's Interference

Whenever the narrator (who also knows that the Hooded Claw is Sylvester Sneekly) would verbally interfere with the Hooded Claw's plans, the fiend would usually try to look down upon him by calling him "wise guy", "a busybody" and "nosy", thus breaking the fourth wall.
