About Klunk

Though he is an expert aircraft mechanic and engineer, Klunk typically speaks with sporadic vocal sound effects intersparsed through his sentences which only Zilly can understand, requiring the latter to translate for him.

Out of all the Vulture Squadron, Klunk is the only member other than Dastardly who truly cares about catching the pigeon, and will take command whenever his leader is unable to. This often forces him to physiclly force Zilly and Muttley in line, as opposed to Dastardly simply threatening to.

Klunk is an inventive designer. Each episode sees him developing aircraft or weapons (often missiles which home on some bizarre trait, such as a person sneezing) with odd features and attachments designed to catch Yankee Doodle Pigeon. In "Vacation Trip Trap", Klunk became a leader of the squadron when Dick Dastardly went on holiday.

In "Home Sweet Homing Pigeon", Klunk is left-handed, and is apparantly illiterate. He is also a vegetarian, having engineered a tree that grows ice cream cones specifically flavored like vegetables.
