The Numbertaker is a live-action human character (with an exaggerated top hat and a white robe, based on an undertaker). He is also the only live-action Meanie. He causes trouble by taking numbers and “numbers of things”; as numbers themselves, the Numberjacks have to be particularly careful when dealing with him. The sleeves of his long with coat hide various attachments with which to steal numbers – a vacuum cleaner, an automatic picker, a net, a magnet, a long pole, a hook, and sometimes just his own hands. He neither speaks in any of his appearances, nor smiles much either. He only makes sounds.
He sometimes becomes his alter ego and is the Numbermaker, causing problems by creating numbers and numbers of things. He has been multiplied twice; on both occasions the multiple versions of him despised each other and all ended up vacuuming each other up in Into The Teens and Half Time.
