In TV Land, a doctor or scientist is roughly 75% likely to be German or Austrian, complete with thick accent and often [[TheVonTropeFamily an entitled legacy]]. Increase to 98% for {{Mad Scientist}}s. We can probably thank [[AllPsychologyIsFreudian Sigmund Freud]], AlbertEinstein and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wernher_von_Braun Wernher von Braun]]. Many top-notch Jewish scientists from Germany, Austria, and Poland fled Nazi persecution in the pre-war and early-war period. Many more War Criminals attempted to flee to western Germany in the final months of the war to avoid capture and trial (for the various amoral deeds they had done ForScience and for personal gain). This allowed the USA to [[AnOfferYouCantRefuse threaten them with acceptance of eastern European extradition requests (for trial) and offer them free passage to and employment in US government projects]] (''Operation Paperclip''). These German-Jewish refugees and ex-Nazis were prominent in many scientific fields during this period, especially [[AtomicHate The Manhattan Project]] and US Space Programme. Several wartime theories and inventions designed to aid the war effort, for good or ill, eventually changed how people lived when they were mass-manufactured and sold to the public. This cemented the longstanding trope of foreign geniuses being boons to welcoming societies.

* Present in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' where a bus crash leaves the pair in critical condition, forcing said doctor to operate with the remaining parts which leaves the asthma hound chihuaha and red cat sown together into one mismatched hybrid. Despite having traits common to a MorallyAmbiguousDoctorate, it can be assumed the doctor (like FrankenFran) is simply doing his job to keep his patients alive, even if he has to resort to nonstandard, questionably extreme practices, such as urgently demanding his assistant knock Ren back into unconsciousness with a mallet when he regains consciousness in the midst of surgery.

* Dr. Elsa Schneider in IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade. Though more strictly a historian, her knowledge of the HolyGrail’s lore ([[FemmeFatale and seduction of the Jones boys]]) is crucial to aiding the Nazis in discovering its location. In some respects, she also borrows from the related MadScientist trope because of her irrational obsession with possessing the grail, which leads to her untimely demise. During a LiteralCliffhanger, she hangs from Indy with one hand and uses the other to reach for the grail, which she had dropped moments earlier. [[FriendOrIdolDecision Indy begs her to stop, but she keeps trying as she can almost grasp it.]] Indy loses his grip on her gloved hand and she falls to her death.

* Two of the scientists from the ([[FrancoBelgianComics Nazi-occupation era]]) ''ComicBook/{{Tintin}}'' comic book ''[[Synopsis/TintinTheShootingStar The Shooting Star]]'' are "Nordic" scientists, the Swede Erik Björgenskjöld and the German [[StockForeignName Otto Schulze]], but they say little or nothing, so you can't really tell their accents. Most of the members of the expedition however come from "Latin" countries - a Spaniard, a Portuguese and a Frenchman[[note]] (Professor Cantonneau, the only one who would make a return appearance, in "The Seven Crystal Balls" and "The Temple of the Sun")[[/note]]. The leader of the expedition, Professor Phostle (Calys in the original French), who comes complete with EinsteinHair, is a French-speaking Belgian. They all have huge foreheads.

In his first appearance in ''[[Synopsis/TintinTheBlackIsland The Black Island]]'' he is a psychiatrist who uses his private clinic as a cover for his criminal activities.
