Professor Van Herb is an anthropomorphic dog.
A dotty old professor and plant genetics expert, Professor Van Herb developed a species of sentient plants known as Irrigonias to help locate and carry waters to draught-stricken areas. However, he lost the prototype, which, after being cared for by an unwitting Goofy, caused quite a bit of chaos in Mouseton until the Professor turned up to explain.
Behind the scenesEdit
