Bravestarr Wiki

Doctor "Doc" Benjamin Clayton (formerly Sam Perkins [1]) was Fort Kerium's Afro-American doctor. He was a frequent ally to BraveStarr, but seemed to have some pacifist ideals - he found it confusing that the Krangs' elderly doctor could also be willing to kill people and ultimately convinced him to switch sides.

Behind the Scenes[]

Doc Clayton was voiced by Lou Scheimer (credited as Erik Gunden)

His name may be a reference to the famous gunfighter Doc Holliday.
