DC Animated Universe

Paunch worked for Roland Daggett, catching stray animals along with his partner Jessy.


Paunch and Jessy went around Gotham City looking for stray dogs and cats to serve as specimens for experiments conducted at Daggett Labs by Dr. Milo. The animals would be injected with a virus that would quickly spread throughout the city, which would then create demand for an antitoxin Daggett had developed.

During a search for strays, Paunch and Jessy were found out by Selina Kyle, who proceeded to investigate the scheme herself. Paunch was then interrogated by Batman, who shut the whole operation down and sent him, Jessy, and Milo to jail.
