Describe Candle Jack he[[spoiler: is a very handsome guy.]]\\
[[spoiler:Well, that was fast.]]\\
As you can see, [[SpeakOfTheDevil speaking or merely typing the name]] of this ''{{WesternAnimation/Freakazoid}}'' villain (voiced by Creator/JeffBennett) will result in the speaker being abducted by said villain. Thus sentences tend to abruptly end when Candle Jack's name is spo[[spoiler:kane, Washington is a lovely city.]]\\
[[spoiler: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[[spoiler: went offscreen for a couple of scenes.]]\\
[[spoiler: 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, ''[[TheScottishTrope that guy]]'' is a villain from the cartoon ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}''. He looks a little bit like the ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' villain, the Scarecrow, or the ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' alien Ghostfreak, a bit like [[WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Oogie Boogie]], and kind of like the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' Dusclops (or Darkrai). He's [[DefangedHorrors 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 [[DeliciousFruitPies defeated by his love of pie]]), and in the second he spent the majority of the episode scaring Professor Jones. MemeticMutation has popularized the Candle Jack [[SubvertedTrope abduction meme.]][[spoiler: Paula Abdul's very pretty, by the way.]]\\
[[spoiler:Seriously.]]\\
In the original toons nobody got kidnapped in the middle of a sentence, but [[PaintingTheMedium 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.\\
[[spoiler: Might as well be polite.]]\\
Oddly enough, on Website/GameFAQs, there seems to be a bit of SeriousBusiness on whether Candle Jack deletes your signature or n[[spoiler:EVER! I'm not that cruel.]]\\
[[spoiler: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 [[TVTropesWikiDrinkingGame drinking game]]. The only thing worse is when someone posts in a thread about him and disappears without ever having said his name.\\
[[spoiler:24 months sober.]]\\
[[spoiler:Are we almost done here? I have an appointment to keep.]]\\
Now somewhat of a DiscreditedMeme, as can be expected if everyone who says 'Candle Jack' disap[[spoiler:Whoa, hey, not ''my'' fault.]]

This wave of abduction leads to an interesting question : [[FridgeLogic Who clicked on the 'save' button to validate all those unfinished messages?]]

*** You guys are all idiots! At this rate, Candle Jack is going to have to char[[spoiler:ter a bus? Good idea.]]
*** I wonder what Candle Jack does to the tropers he ki[[spoiler:ndly 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 som[[spoiler:ething similar? No, that won't help.]]

*** Alright, I think it's safe to say Candle Jack everyb[[spoiler:ody. 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 Ro[[spoiler:pe.]]
*** What if I end my sentence with Candle Jack [[spoiler: nope.]]
*** You know what? This is ridiculous. There's no such thing as Candle Jack. See? I finished my senten[[spoiler:ce. You definitely had that coming to ya.]]
*** I actually think he is a nice guy, he takes people to a nice tour around holding everyone tightly to him. Thanks Candle Jack [[spoiler: no problem buddy.]]
*** Oh come on, you really think i'd say Candle Jack- Son of a- [[spoiler: Next word that comes out of your mouth better be gun.]] -[[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch -bi]][[spoiler:[[CurseCutShort ngo!]] But seriously, you had it coming.]]
*** I can say it perfectly fine. Candle Jack. See[[spoiler: that he's pretty handsome.]]

Maybe to stop him, we should lock SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in a room with that Candle Jack wack[[spoiler:y guy he is. He's a fun poker buddy.]]

Forget Chuck Norris. Someone call Cosgrove. He'll point his finger at Candle Jack and tell him to [[spoiler: 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 ha[[spoiler:ppen 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.]]

I can't help but wonder: What would happen if Candlejack said his own [[spoiler: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? [[spoiler: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!
