Wilbur Cobb is a demented, decaying, senile old man who is usually shown telling Ren and Stimpy wild stories. He first appears in "Stimpy's Cartoon Show", in which he is introduced as Stimpy's idol, nicknamed "The Godfather of All Animation". Wilbur Cobb would go on to reappear in later episodes, taking roles such as a museum worker, a reverend, and an escaped convict.

He dies in "Galoot Wranglers" after he guarantees that his made-up story is true, promising to drop dead if otherwise, although he appears in the form of Ren's guardian angel in "The Last Temptation".
