Doomie most of the time appears to be a happy-go-lucky, loyal, good-natured car that is always ready for a good time. However, he suffers a split-personality disorder due to Beetlejuice giving him an abnormal carburetor when he and Lydia created him. Because of this, Doomie will sometimes turn into a werewolf-like car, which is usually incited when he sees dogs. After his transformation, he will chase the dog until his transformation wears off. He really cares about Beetlejuice and Lydia and will often try to warn him when he is about to make a risky or unwise decision. He's very much like a dog.

As shown in the episode "Doomie's Romance," Doomie is a hopeless romantic. He falls in love with Pinky, a pink convertible belonging to Mayor Maynot, and becomes quite emotional in his efforts to woo her and help her become a sentient vehicle like himself.


Other than his occasional transformation into a werewolf-car, Doomie also is able to fly and can drive himself. In "Brinkadoom," despite being severely damaged, he is able to summon the means to start his engine in order to save his 'parents' from being trapped in the eponymous vanishing town.


The split personality, which was between Doomie and Dragster of Doom, was based on a novel "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde", by the legendary Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894).
