The Ringmaster appears in the episode "Sad Face." He manages the traveling bug circus that Blue Nose (Jake's tail) works at. In the episode, the ringmaster reprimands Blue Nose for putting too much "artsy" and not enough "fartsy" in his act. Blue Nose agrees to change it up on the condition that Goralina is set free. However, after seeing how successful Blue Nose's new, cruder act is, the ringmaster reneges, prompting Blue Nose to chase him around the ring with the ringmaster's own whip.
He is a bug, likely a beetle, that wears a red tuxedo. The tuxedo has a black bow tie and two black buttons. He wears a tall top hat with a white stripe along the base of it. He has four arms and two legs and often carries a whip.
