Audiences tend to laud iconic scoundrels for one or two particularly nefarious capers. For example, everybody relishes Darth Vader's misbehavior in The Empire Strikes Back, but nobody remembers when he tried to out-scheme Princess Leia out of obtaining a bank loan. Here's a half-dozen memorable times your favorite bad eggs cracked up hard.
6. Skeletor hijacks a circus for no apparent reason
He-Man nemesis Skeletor is a surprisingly competent supervillain, given that he is probably the magically resurrected, sun-bleached corpse of Gilbert Gottfried. Remember that time he poisoned Hordak with a pie? That plan was a masterstroke, as there are almost certainly no functional bakeries on the planet Etheria. Anyway, the 1984 episode "The Greatest Show on Eternia" saw Skeletor at his absolute nadir. In this adventure, the ossified super-wizard schemes to commandeer his own circus by mugging a clown. I'm not sure if it's just the corner-cutting Eighties animation, but Skeletor looks chemically impaired throughout this entire escapade. (Also, Cthulhuphant is making my stomach hurt.)
