Role in the short
Frankenollie puts an ad in the newspaper promising to pay his employer $999 and 99 cents. Mickey answers the ad and heads over to the address. Mickey is sucked into an underground laboratory and captured. Frankenollie then informs Mickey of his sadistic plan; to switch his brain with that of his monster Julius. During the brain switch, he attaches helmets to their heads and activates a switch while laughing manically causing a large explosion. Mickey awakes to find himself in Julius' body and finds a charred Frankenollie and tells him to change him back but it is too late as the doctor was killed in the explosion and disintegrates in Mickey's hands.
Dr. Frankenollie was utilized in an Online Safety Flash comic series titled "Cybernettiquette " to represent those who make trouble on the internet by creating computer viruses.
Dr. Frankenollie is central to a line of action figures sold in the Disney Theme Parks, Disney "TRONICS" GvE, where he has built a series of giant robots based on various Disney characters, heroes, and villains, to fight each other for his own amusement.
