John Paul Larkin, better known as Scatman or Scatman John (March 13, 1942-December 3, 1999) was the most known scat singer of all time. Scatman John is best known for his songs Scatman (Ski-Ba-Bop-Ba-Dop-Bop) and Scatman's World. These two songs were frequently used in pre-2008 SM64 bloopers (with an exception being Starman3 who kept using them until 2010).
History in SMG4's bloopers
His only appearance was in Scatman's Revenge where he appears as the main villain. He wants to get revenge on Mario because he keeps using his songs. So, in his first attempt he gives Mario flashy clothes and his song "I'm a Scatman" is heard. Mario gets very annoyed and insists that Scatman turn him back to normal. Then, in his second attempt after changing Mario back he creates a Giant Mario to kill Mario and Toad. Mario sends in the army to kill the Giant Mario but they failed. Lakitu comes in and risks his life to save Mario and with the power of numbers Lakitu kills the Giant Mario.
Finally, in his third and final attempt of killing Mario.
