Badfort, is the home of Uncle's chief enemy Beaver Hateman along with his friends and relatives. It is a disagreeable shanty town of old Nissen huts and sheds, described by Uncle as "the vilest castle of infamy ever constructed." The Badfort lifestyle is very different from that of Homeward. The Hatemans go barefoot, dress in sack suits and live off "skob fish" taken from an insalubrious stretch of water called Gaby's Marsh, and an oily drink called Black Tom. The raucous celebrations of the Badfort Crowd are constantly disrupting the tranquility of Homeward.
