Cool Hand Mask is the thirty-six episode of The Mask: The Animated Series.


Fed up with ruining his plans, Pretorius frames The Mask in stealing fund raising money from an Orphan Little League team and gets sent to prison. With The Mask incarcerated, Pretorius finally puts his evil plans to rule Edge City to use by tampering with Edge City's electrical devices. But The Mask won't be in prison for long.



  • This is one of the few episodes that Stanley never takes off The Mask.
  • It is strange why when The Mask was arrested and put on trial, the police didn't remove the mask itself to reveal his secret identity. Possibly due to the show's producers wanting Stanley Ipkiss' identity to be kept safe or a result of the Edge City Police's forgetfulness/stupidity.
  • It is revealed that Lt. Kellaway once successfully arrested The Mask for jaywalking.
  • This episode's title is taken from the Paul Newman movie Cool Hand Luke.
