The Cranky Wizard first appeared in Episode XXVII: Chicken Jack, in which he angrily transformed Samurai Jack into a chicken when the latter had accidentally bumped into him. He was voiced by Billy West.
The Wizard bears a resemblance to the stereotypical wizard, with long white beard, cloak, and pointed hat. He appears to care for his black nails, which become jagged and broken when he uses his transformation abilities.
Little is known about the Wizard other than his dislike of manicures and people who bump into him. Some time after using his powers on Jack, the Wizard used his powers on Jack's captor Cacciatore after he too had bumped into him. This had the effect of turning Cacciatore into a chicken and Jack back into a human. By the time Jack realized what had happened, the Wizard had already stormed off into the city.
