The Weasels are supporting antagonists who first appeared in The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad. They are a gang of crafty thieves and crooks who serve the interests of their boss, Winkie. However, because of their fast-moving hoodlum-like qualities, they appeared more often in later films as antagonists to Mickey and Friends, mostly employed as henchmen by more powerful villains.
In their original film, the Weasels were hired by Mr. Winkie, in an attempt to steal the deed to Toad Hall.
Two of the weasels appeared as gravediggers for Tiny Tim's funeral, as well as Scrooge's funeral.
Though the weasels do not appear in the film, the Toon Patrol's designs are based off of them.
They appeared as the henchmen of Pete and are supporting antagonists. They serve as the English King's military force but act more like ruthless crooks that constantly rob the poor, in the ill King's name.
In the episode "Pete's House of Villains", when he is put in charge of the House, Pete hires weasels as the waiters in place of the Penguin Waiters.
