Melvin Van Horne (aka Sideshow Mel) is Krusty's current sidekick on The Krusty the Clown Show. When not in character, Mel speaks in a grandiose English/Shakespearean accent and owns many poodles. He has aqua blue afro hair with a bone in the middle, a dusty green necklace, wears a green Hawai skirt and brown shoes.
In the game
In Homer's game, he was seen in Krustyland Studios, and was inside a canon. When Homer helps Melvin, he said, he couldn't stand the tortures Krusty puts him through and asked how can he thank him. Homer then says, that any object he will give him will be appreciated. He then gave him his bone from his hair and his flute.
- In Homer's game, he was seen the same as in the series.
- When Homer defeated Krusty, he was pleased and happy.
