     Humdinger's rap sheet 

This is my analysis on how much jail time/fines Mayor Humdingernote  has racked up by now.

Please note that the sentences listed are those from Canada, where PAW Patrol is produced.

  • Pups Save A Basketball Game: Animal Abuse

For the sake of simplicity, I'll be counting any misdeeds directed towards the pups as animal abuse, unless the situation proves otherwise.

In this episode, Humdinger has one of the Foggy Bottom Boomers trip Rocky and Zuma. Both pups sustain injuries. This counts for two counts of animal cruelty, which is about 10 years in jail and up to a $20,000 fine.

Total: 10 years in jail/$20,000 fine

  • Pups And The Mischievous Kittens: Littering

This episode marks the first appearance of the Kitten Catastrophe Crew. Led by this pathetic excuse for a mayor, they make a mess outside City Hall. This would get them, at most, a $500 fine.

Total: $500 fine.

  • Pup-Fu!: Theft

For stealing a very important scroll, Humdinger would receive a $^5,000 fine.

Total: $5,000 fine.

  • Pups Save the Mayor's Race: Property Damage

For damaging Mayor Goodway's boat, Humdinger would face three months jailtime and a $2,500 fine.

Total: Three months jailtime, $2,500 fine

  • Pups Save A Piñata: Theft/Animal Abuse

First off, for stealing the piñata, there would be a theft charge of up to a $5,000 dollar fine and six months in jail. For the animal abuse directed towards the kittens, that's a $10,000 dollar fine and 5 years in jail.

Total: $15,000 dollar fine/5 years, six months in jail.

  • Ultimate Rescue: Pups Save The Royal Kitties: Kidnapping, Damage to Property, Theft

In this Ultimate Rescue, Mayor Humdinger hears about the Purple Jewel Kitty, so he infiltrates the train and manages to trap the butler, Katie, and the train operator. The PAW Patrol managed to save them, but at the cost of the two royal kittens being forced to join the Kitten Catastrophe Crew. Thankfully, the PAW Patrol managed to save them. When they arrived at the museum, Humdinger managed to disable the alarm, get the artifact, and escape. But even worse, he modified the train to run on asphalt. When the PAW Patrol stops Mayor Humdinger, he is forced to use a pump trolley as a temporary locomotive to Foggy Bottom.

In reality, he would be sentenced to 10 years and 3 months in prison and a $5,000 dollar fine.

Total: 10 years, 3 months in jail, $5,000 fine

  • Rocky Saves Himself: Kidnapping, Theft, Littering

In this one, Mayor Humdinger managed to lure Rocky away from the group to clean the beach, and later managed to trap him on an island full of trash. The kittens managed to steal his tugboat and Pup-Tag leaving him stranded. Mayor Humdinger begins to throw trash on the beach, which is dangerous.Ryder and the pups noticed his absence but sent scout but no avail. At the end, Rocky finds a way using a soda jet-pack he crafted, flies to the rescue and reclaim his things from the Kitten Catastrophe Crew. Later, Rocky punished Humdinger and his kittens by letting them clean an ENTIRE ISLAND FULL of trash, where he stranded by him at the first place.

For kidnapping Rocky, littering, and stealing PAW Patrol propertynote , he would be sentenced to 10 years prison and a $5,500 fine.

Total: 10 years prison, $5,500 fine

  • Mighty Pups: Kidnapping/Attempted Murder

In this episode, Ryder is kidnapped and held in the basement of the Lookout. The maximum sentence for kidnapping/unlawful confinement is 10 years in jail.

There's also the possibility that Humdinger could have kept Ryder imprisoned for the rest of his life. Ryder had no access to resources necessary for survival in that basement, so he almost certainly would have died. This would have gotten Humdinger charged with murder, which is an automatic life sentence (25 years). However, since Ryder escapes and thus, lives to see another day, murder charges can't be pressed. Instead, there might be a charge for attempted murder, which can get you anywhere from 10 to 30 years in jail. A life sentence is still possible, but it's the maximum.

Total: 35 years in jail (assuming he got a life sentence for attempted murder).

Humdinger's overall sentence is: 71 years in jail and a $53,500 fine.


How well does it match the trope?
