- "Where are you, Thumbelina?"
- ―Leopold chasing Madeline and Pepito
Leopold as portrayed by Ben Daniels.
|First appearance||Madeline (1998 film)|
|Portrayed by||Ben Daniels (1998 film)|
Leopold the Tutor, though not the main antagonist of Madeline, is the real villain (the main antagonist being Lord Covington). He is actually a criminal posing as a tutor of Pepito, the son of the Spanish ambassador, the latter of whose money he plans on getting and even insults Madeline calling her "Thumbelina".
Leopold is very similar to Dr. Herman Varnick from Beethoven: Both characters are criminals pretending to be professionals.
