Scuttlebutt is an adversary of "An American Tail: Treasure of Manhattan Island". He is also the tertiary antagonist of the film.

He is Dr. Dithering's associate. He is always poking around to see what the doctor is up to. The doctor believes him to just be a curious fellow. He is really a spy for the factory owners to see if there is anything they want from him. When the group finally reached the underground village, Scuttlebutt was attempting to steal many of the belongings of the Indians and was caught until they all left the village. After the final battle he and McBrusque were assumed to have drowned. He has a British accent and is rather clumsy.
