El Papagayo was a notorious criminal who sought to reign supreme as the criminal overlord of Mantegua, a small nation in South America. Batman and the first Robin traveled there, in order to train a local Batman-style mystery man, to deal with this public menace. This project backfired when the ill-chosen "Bat-Hombre" turned out to be a bandit underling of El Papagayo. Batman and Robin ultimately prevailed over these brigands, and they were arrested by Manteguan police.
El Papagayo is a citizen of Argentina, has been active in the Falklands, and is a wheelchair-bound old man.
