Mean Murphy Knuckles is one of the secondary antagonists of the 1995 (1996 internationally) film Annie: A Royal Adventure!, the other being his partner Rupert Hogbottom. He has shorter hair (which is black) than Rupert, whose mother is their boss Lady Hogbottom. He is a strong brute, but he is mostly a very unintelligent person. Which proves to be his downfall as he is always getting him and Rupert into nasty scraps and trouble with Rupert's mother. Along with being foiled and outsmarted many times by Annie, Hannah and Molly. He is played by Perry Benson.
