Gorman Howell is an extremely strict 6th grade teacher at McQuarrie Middle School. He is against origami in the school and appears to have a grudge against Kellen, Dwight, and Tommy. He is known for his similarity to Jabba the Hutt and even has his own origami puppet of him, much to the surprise of the kids. In Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue!, he joins forces with the Origami Rebel Alliance and helps stop FunTime.
Mr. Howell is introduced as the stereotypical mean teacher. He has a grudge against the kids throughout the series and is always looking for an opportunity to get them in trouble.
Kellen states that Mr. Howell looked like Jabba the Hutt and later the Rancor. In the The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppett, he states that he knew all along about Kellen's "Howell the Hutt" comparison and even remarked that it was fitting for him as Jabba was his favorite character in Star Wars. He also wields Jabba the Hutt in The Surprise Attack of Jabba the Puppett.
- In the first book, Mr Howell had white hair, in others he had black.
