In "Mystery Train," he is the first of the passengers to be "murdered." Since he has little to no control over the way his body rotates when in motion, he smacks Colonel Candy Corn every time the train goes over a bump. This happens several times, infuriating Colonel Candy Corn to the point of exclaiming, "I'm gonna kill you!" leading the other passengers to believe the colonel is the murderer.
He resembles a large candy cane wearing a brown fedora. In most appearances, he has light- and dark-green stripes. In "Mystery Train," however, his stripes are pink and red instead of green and white.
Colonel, I am so sorry.
What's happening? I forgot my glasses!
