Doctor John Zoidberg (born August 5) is the fictional staff doctor of the Planet Express delivery service in the animated television series Futurama. The character is voiced by Billy West. Zoidberg is a lobster-like alien from the planet Decapod 10. Though he claims to specialize in working on humans he usually proves to have very little knowledge of human anatomy and physiology. Although he is a doctor he lives in extreme poverty and is often portrayed as being unpopular and generally disliked by the staff of Planet Express. In the episode "That's Lobstertainment!" Zoidberg is revealed to have aspirations of working as a comedian, however, he is no more successful in this pursuit than he is as a doctor.
