Generally characterized by his lousy attitude and pretensions to artistic genius. Vic de Schmittedde is the half-Austrian-half-Welsh director of The Hoppity and Bee Show. He blows up on set often and is frustrated by the low production values of the show, which is generally a creative black hole anyway. He is contracted with Relentless Studios and has directed other shows for them in the past. He has few friends, though he has a good professional relationship with his producer, Gil Donell, and he enters a long term relationship with Alice Bumstead, the studios receptionist until she kills him. He feels particular animosity towards Hoppity and Bee.
