It's Dr. Mid-Nite's owl. There's something special about him. I don't know what, but every time we'd come here, that owl, he'd fly right to Dr. Mid-Nite and land on his arm. He doesn't know Dr. Mid-Nite's dead. He's been waiting for him for years.

Notes and Trivia

Comic Comparisons

  • In the comics, Hooty the Owl was an American wood owl that happened upon the McNider estate in New York one evening. Suffering from a misguided direction, Hooty crashed through an upstairs window into Charles McNider's private study. McNider cared for the bird's injuries and provided him with the name, Hooty. Hooty's presence inspired McNider to take on the garb of Doctor Mid-Nite.
