Doofus is the character who disturbed a nest of wasps for no good reason. He is in group five, but is not related to the trains, just like Botch.


As a child Doofus was prone to head injuries. This meant his parents wouldn't allow him to play ball sports. Denied his one true passion, Doofus now jumps at any opportunity to play with round things. Including wasp nests. That takes a lot of balls.[1]

I love wasps

Doofus ready to throw the wasp nest.

Doofus looks very similar to Hapless. They both are the same color and shape; both die from animals and both hold something. The only difference is they die different ways.

Doofus is yellow and holds a Nest of Wasps. He has wasps covered and swarming around him.

Game Edit

In the game when Doofus appears, you have to kill all the wasps that are in his face due to playing with its nest. If you win the game he will swipe his sweat from his forehead and make an expression of relief, but if you lose he will be stung to death, as seen in the video.

Doofus has another mini game where he throws a nest of wasps in the air. You must tilt Doofus around so he can catch the nest of wasp several times. If you win, the bees will make a winking face at Doofus. If the nest touches the ground, the bees will attack Doofus and he will fall like the original music video and his first mini game suggest, resulting in failure.

In his Christmas mini game he will be making the base snowball for a snowman. The player must roll the snowball until it's big enough.If you lose,the snowman's nose/carrot will poke his eye out and cause him to start bleeding, resulting in failure. If you win then the snowman comes to life as Doofus starts cheering.
