The Amarillo Kid is one of the Penguins' worst enemies and a current servant to the Villain League in Looney Tunes movie.
A long time ago, the Amarillo Kid challenged Private to a game of mini golf, back when Private was one of the best mini golf players and was known as Mr. Tux. Private quit after the game, which ended in a tie, because he had to hit a girl possum's ice cream cone to tie it up.
Several years later, he arrived at the Central Park Zoo to challenge Private to a game to prove he's the best in Mr. Tux. At first, Private refuses to fight him. Enraged by this, the Kid locked down the entire zoo and threatened to blow it up with a thermonuclear reactor. Private battles him, and though the game is close, Private wins with the help of a cricket he had saved early. Ashamed, the Amarillo Kid left.
In 'Showdown on Fairway 18', The Amarillo Kid returns once again to ask for Private's help. The other Penguins didn't trust him, and reminded him of his last crimes, including trying to single-handedly cause the Great Peanut Butter Winkie Fathom of 1812 (Which was undetermined). Amarillo explained that he made a mini-golf bet with 2 Gopher champs, and lost, and was going to have his shell removed as part of the bet. He begged the Penguins to help him (He even used puppy eyes), but the Penguins catapulted him out. Private, however, had the heart to help him. Amarillo told him about a golden putter called 'The West Chester Putter', which he explains that legend says that anyone who wields it would be unbeatable (And also forged in the fires of 'Mt. Bogey Ha-Ha'). Amarillo intended to use it to beat the Gophers, and save his shell. Private intends that Amarillo returns it afterwards, and Amarillo agrees. Meanwhile, the 2 Gophers arrive at the zoo to find the Penguins. They explain that they never wanted Amarillo's shell, but to ask for the Penguins' help. They say that Amarillo made them spend all their valuables on mini-golf games, and he won, and they lost everything they owned, including their tiny violin. This makes the Penguins think that the Amarillo Kid lied to them. Meanwhile, Private and Amarillo fail many times to get the putter, but manage to get it. But after Amarillo hears too much about Private talking about truth and honesty, he loses it, and admits the truth. He explains that he tried to steal it for the Gophers to keep his shell, so he tricked Private into helping him. However, he decided to do the right thing, and return it until the Penguins and Gophers appear and argue with Private. But then the Gophers caged them with a fallen down chandelier. Kowalski calculates that the Gophers tried to have the Amarillo Kid and Private steal the West Chester Putter and knew that prolonged exposure to Private might improve Amarillo's thinking so that he would change his mind about stealing the Putter, so they played on the Penguins' sympathies to lead to Private and Amarillo so they could steal the Putter for themselves. The Gophers escape with the Putter, and Amarillo frees the Penguins. They persue the Gophers in golf carts, and Amarillo manages to stop them after the Penguins begin failing. After the Gophers are beaten, Amarillo respectfully agrees to return the Putter after agreeing to be more honest. However, 5 days later, The Villain League became furious after hearing about this, and corrupted him, making him evil again.
The Amarillo Kid has a thick Southern accent and uses southern lingo, which often confuses other animals. He is incredibly determined to prove himself as the best mini golf player, and is willing to cheat and go to extreme actions to do so
Role in the series
The Amarillo Kid has currently kidnapped the Kung Fu Masters, Croc and Ox, and blackmailed them into serving him as his counterpoints to Shen. It can be assumed that it's another skime to get a rematch on Private, aka Mr. Tux, on another golf game. It's possable that Mirage was so fasinated by the Armidillo Kid's cruely and blackmail ability, and yet another eqiliment for the penguins, Mirage requirted him, and even promise him that he'll get his chance for a rematch on Private and the other Penguins, though due to the penguins not appearing in the Spyro/Looney toon project due to someone else calling dibs on them, Scroopfan will still use him, but will have to give him a prior appearence in order to make it work.
