Mr. Gorgonzola appears in the trailer for 2018's To Mock a Killing Bird here.

Horatio Gorgonzola was born too late to be a railroad robber baron, but what he lacked in punctuality, he made up for with greed and conniving. An absolute shark in business, Gorgonzola rose to vast wealth and power in the banking industry before the bottom fell out of it in 2008. He lost everything except his Plymouth Fury and Trailer Park Avenue - the most lackluster among his real estate holdings. Forced to live in impoverished circumstances, Horatio's only goal is to get back to his luxury penthouse apartment - and away from the people who remind him that he's poor.

Within a decade, however, Gorgonzola had managed to rebuild his wealth, and was once again living the luxurious life to which he had grown accustomed. On December 29, 2018, he murdered Magnanimous T with a microwave oven. When his archnemesis, Chauncey Van Van der Van, was brought in to solve the case, Gorgonzola was arrested.

Two days later, on New Year's Eve, while out on bail, Gorgonzola himself was murdered by Space Bob Ross with a ruthless sloth named Reginald. Due to his high profile, Gorgonzola's murder was personally investigated by Governor Kay Ivey. The governor and the audience correctly arrested Ross and sent him to prison.
