"Scary" John is a minor character mentioned in the first issue of The Adventures of Sly Cooper and the book Sly Cooper: To Catch a Thief.

History[edit | edit source]

John was the janitor at the Happy Camper Orphanage during the time Sly Cooper, Bentley and Murray resided there. Not much is known about his past, however, cleaning Mrs. Puffin's office was a part of his duties. When Sly and his friends were carrying out their very first heist: the Cookie Stealing Plan, John was on his way to Mrs. Puffin's office to clean it and was completely unaware of Sly's presence. Before Sly could reach Mrs. Puffin's cookie jar, Bentley warned him that there was no time left, for he and Murray feared that John would catch Sly red-handed.

Sly had finally reached the cookie jar when he heard someone in the hallway, thinking it was Bentley and Murray. After they told him that they were outside the whole time, Sly realized that it was John coming his way. He stuffed some cookies in his hat for the quick getaway, and once he escaped, John opened the door to the office to begin cleaning. Due to Sly's quick escape, John did not catch him and had no idea that cookies were stolen.
