Dr. John A. Zoidberg is a lobster-like creature and a doctor.


When members of Planet Express were calling the past to ask Bender why he hadn't killed Homer yet, Zoidberg got on the call and said that it looked like everyone got a turn to say something. He then said that sentence concluded his turn.[1]


Donut Homer.png The contents of this article or section are considered to be non-canon and therefore may not have actually happened or existed.

He is one of the enemies of The Simpsons Game level "Five Characters in Search of an Author", in which, along with Bender, he is drawn by Matt Groening (the boss of the level) to taunt Bart and Homer when they reach Matt's office. Zoidberg can shoot balls from his mouth at Bart and Homer. He also appears as an enemy sent by God in Dance Dance Revolution.


  • At one moment, in the game, he says "I'll digest you in my eggs for a thousand years". This is a reference to Futurama's main character Philip J. Fry, who was cryogenically frozen for a thousand years.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

  • Oddly in "The Simpsons Game" he shares his scream sound effects with the Rigellians.
