"I'm gonna need more rope."Describe Candle Jack he is a very handsome guy.
Well, that was fast.
As you can see, speaking or merely typing the name of this Freakazoid! villain (voiced by Jeff Bennett) will result in the speaker being abducted by said villain. Thus sentences tend to abruptly end when Candle Jack's name is spokane, Washington is a lovely city.
This is going to be a busy day for me, isn't it? Hopefully not...
A notable villain in that he had very few appearances, but was so memorable that everyone remembers the one where everyone said "Candle Jack" and went offscreen for a couple of scenes.
You guys just aren't that bright, are you? Or are you just plain dumb?
For those of you who came here actually looking for information, not in-jokes, that guy is a villain from the cartoon Freakazoid!. He looks a little bit like the Batman villain, the Scarecrow, or the Ben 10 alien Ghostfreak, a bit like Oogie Boogie, and kind of like the Pokémon Dusclops (or Darkrai). He's pretty creepy for a children's cartoon. He only showed up in two episodes; in the first he would kidnap and tie up anyone who said his name, much to the annoyance of the hero (and ultimately defeated by his love of pie), and in the second he spent the majority of the episode scaring Professor Jones. Memetic Mutation has popularized the Candle Jack abduction meme. Paula Abdul's very pretty, by the way.
In the original toons nobody got kidnapped in the middle of a sentence, but that's really the only way to make the joke funny in a written format. Though the general rule is that he's nice enough to hit Submit for you on the way out. And also spoiler mark it for you.
Might as well be polite.
Oddly enough, on GameFAQs, there seems to be a bit of Serious Business on whether Candle Jack deletes your signature or nEVER! I'm not that cruel.
I'm gonna need more rope.
Seriously, if you actually see someone complete their sentence after saying his name, it's a full six-pack in the drinking game. The only thing worse is when someone posts in a thread about him and disappears without ever having said his name.
24 months sober.
Are we almost done here? I have an appointment to keep.
Now somewhat of a Discredited Meme, as can be expected if everyone who says 'Candle Jack' disapWhoa, hey, not my fault. Has even infiltrated theOther Wiki - see the entry for Freakazoid! This wave of abduction leads to an interesting question : Who clicked on the 'save' button to validate all those unfinished messages?
- Candle Jack himself, of could conceivably go on forever if you guys don't learn, soon.
- Oh, that's very polite of him! Thank you, kind Candle Jack, that's very kind of you're welcome.

- I wonder what Candle Jack does to the tropers he kindly takes out for a drive? Why, we go for a nice brunch! I even pay for the little ones, too.
- Will I be okay if I refer to his name as a foreign one? Like Candle Jacque or something similar? No, that won't help.
- Okay, this is getting ridiculous. The cartoon this guy appeared in stopped airing years ago. I honestly don't think that Candle Jack is still ...I stand corrected.
- I'm out of rope. Good going.
- Alright, I think it's safe to say Candle Jack everybody. Nope.
- Dear Mr. Jack, I would like to take this opportunity to inform you of an offer my company would like to make: Candle Jack Brand Rope.
- What if I end my sentence with Candle Jack nope.
- You know what? This is ridiculous. There's no such thing as Candle Jack. See? I finished my sentence. You definitely had that coming to ya.

- Oh, that's very polite of him! Thank you, kind Candle Jack, that's very kind of you're welcome.
- Guys, come on, seriously? Candle Jack doesn't exist. See? I finished the sentence and never should have done that.
- Candle Jack can't get me. I'm finishing this sentence riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight after this break.
- Nope, finished this sentence right now. Candle Jack. Finish your feeble attempts to circumvent the Candle Jacking so I can go to bed. Wait, if I say my own Navarro is not an okay place to live. Huh, I think we might have gotten him beat! Just make Candle Jack say Can-openers make opening cans easier.
- Candle Jac- ALL GLORY TO THE what, a mind-altering frog or something?
- Can I think your name Mr. Jack? Sure buddy, go ahead.
- What if we called him Taperjohn? It basically means Candlejack, but we would almost get away with it.
- Right, Candle Jack, but they use bikes and go cross-country? I got this.
- Can't be summoned when I say Cndlejck. No A's make no difference, buddy.
- !saedi of tuo nur reven elpoep uoY-awkcab kcajeldnaC yas I fi tahw oS

- Or at least Candle?
At least we're safe from Candle Jack in The Stinger areactually not really. Darn it, I'm out of rope again.
>That does it, I'm calling Chuck Norris.
Forget Chuck Norris. Someone call Cosgrove. He'll point his finger at Candle Jack and tell him to Or, you know, you could just... stop typing my name. Seriously, people. ...or you could stop kidnapping people instead. Just saying.
It does makes me wonder, why does Candle Jack happen to take so many people along for a ride? I'm a nice guy, it's second nature to me. Now stop saying my name already, I have better stuff to do.
Will do, Candle...CRAP! I almost said Jack... oops. Nope. Not doing this shit anymore. You capture yourself. I'm going to the Bahamas.
Who would get me first? This guy, or Beetlejuice? Because if you say Beetlejuice three times, Beetlejuice will get you before Candlejack would? Yeah, you keep telling yourself that.
Rejoice, friends and comrades! I present you with my new, patent-pending, CANDLE JACK REPELLent? That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard of.
Jack, no swiping! Jack, no swiping! Jack, no- You're too late! They'll never find you now! ...What, don't you watch the show enough? That actually happens every now and then.
I can't help but wonder: What would happen if Candlejack said his own name? Well, I can't kidnap myself, so nothing would happen. Now come with me.
I'm confused! How do you spell his name? Is it Candle Jack or Candlejack? Seriously? You're not even supposed to be saying it in the first place!
What is all of this stuff about Candle Jack? I don't even know who he is! Oh, hey. I'm out of rope. Do you have some? Oh, me? Sure! Here you go! Don't spend ithank you very much.
Hey Candle Jack, you look like you could use a hug. Thanks, I needed that. It's been a long day.
Heh heh heh. Candle Jack will never find me all the way down heYou wanna bet, buddy?
I wonder... If I pothole his name... what happens to the further potholes? and is it a working loophafraid not, my friend.
And what about "C....e J..k", huh? Will I get kidY.s
I work in a tech support and I've just received a complaint from a certain Jack Candle! Is it safe for me they never stop falling for this one.
One clever a was that, admit I'll but, too him kidnapped I but, that tried Warp Thymespe Warp Thyme that way the in name Jack's Candle speak I if what.
Candle Jack? What is that, an amalgam of HThat's not for you to know.
CAPTAIN JACK HARKNESS! GOTCHA Bye. It's close enough for me. He's a good guy. Don't hug him for more than five seconds, though.
Wait, how did they cast Candle Jack if Candle Jack would just kidnap all his voice act It's called a casting couch.
Jack be nimble Jack be quick Jack jumped over The candlestill expecting some kind of immunity to fire, I guess. I won't complain, he was so busy treating the burns he didn't even notice me.
So does this mean that all our Tropers are belong to Candle Jack?@#$, that meme went out of style years ago. I don't want to hear it again.
How about if I say Candle Jane? Does that bring up any rule 63 applies to me too, so yes.
Candle Jacking off a EXCUSE ME!?
I like the new TV Tropes layout. Candle Jack, WHOOPS, what do you thit's alright, could be better, could be worse.
So, if a common crook jacks a candle truck, does that stop me? Nah, it's just a stunt to let me rope you all in.
TOP O THE MORNIN TO YA LADDIES MY NAME IS CANDLEJACKSEPTICEYE AND WELCOME TO PHOTOBOOTH
Has no one guessed yet that you should just stop saying his name? What do you think, Candle Jack? I agree. Seriously, I've run out of rope multiple times on this page alone.
- Statler: You know what I think about these people up there?
Waldorf: What would that be?
Statler: They're all fools.
Waldorf: You're right! Nobody can be so dumb as to say Candle Jack and
Candle Jack: Just so you know, you guys aren't immune either. Do-ho-ho-ho-hoh!
