History: (Spider-Ham: Caught in a Ham cartoon short) - Doctor Crawdaddy was a supervillain active in a cartoon-like reality. Operating from his Evil Villain Lair, he kidnapped Spider-Ham (Peter Porker) and strapped him to a table, preparing to kill his opponent with a laser. Spider-Ham escaped from his restraints and, after Crawdaddy angrily proclaimed his name, noted that the pun in the name "Crawdaddy" needed work. Spider-Ham brainstormed several potential alternatives for him before tricking Crawdaddy again and hitting him with a laptop. Crawdaddy chased after Spider-Ham, eventually returning to the same room in which they started, where Spider-Ham webbed him up and used his personal mallet to smash Crawdaddy through several walls in the building. Immediately afterwards, a portal opened above him and pulled Spider-Ham into another reality.

Doctor Crawdaddy was voiced by actor Aaron LaPlante.

Doctor Crawdaddy appears in Spider-Ham: Caught in a Ham, an animated short film from the home video release of the movie Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, for which it acts as a prequel. In Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the alternate realities of the Spider-people are numbered after those of their comic counterparts, but styled in the form of E-1610, E-8311 etc. Because the film does not share the continuity with the comics and indeed several of the characters has notable differences from their comic counterparts, their home realities cannot be the same as Earth-1610, Earth-8311 and others.
    While they clearly can't be -616 or -1610, Spider-Ham is the least problematic in terms of fitting with a previous version. However, as movie continuity does not tend to follow comic continuity, neither Spider-Ham nor Crawdaddy can be confirmed as being from Earth-8311. However, there is nothing that definitely rules them out either. Time will tell whether the realm listed as E-8311 matches the realm of Earth-8311 or another reality altogether. --Snood

    Spider-Ham's reality indeed has the least amount of major differences. Still, while Earth-8311 Spider-Ham and his counterparts (such as Earth-25 or video game versions) battle against animal counterparts of Earth-616 Spider-Man's villains, the animated version has a different Rogues Gallery and is mostly based on Looney Tunes-style slapstick humor. Additionally, all of the Spider-people meet for the first time during the movie, while their comic counterparts first met during the Inheritors crisis in the Spider-Verse event and are familiar with each other afterwards. Given that the movie has a sequel in works, which can introduce additional differences and deviations, I personally am very cautious about treating anyone in it as the same as their comic counterparts.
    Pretty much what I was thinking. I like the concept of comic versions making it to the screen, but the odds are that contradictions would inevitably arise, especially as many writers don't get that they shouldn't be applying 616 to anything but the main comic reality. Hence whenInto the Spider-Verse tries to identify the movie Miles as being from 616, there's no way that can work. -Loki
