Zim bob 1
Homeworld Irk
Rank Service Drone
Gender Male
Affiliation(s) Irken Empire
First appearance Hobo 13
Voice Actor(s) Kevin Michael Richardson

Bob, (referred to by Purple as Bobby) is a Service Drone who made his first and only appearance in "Hobo 13". He is perhaps one of the only Irkens (known anyhow) that is tired of Almighty Tallest Red and Almighty Tallest Purple's tyrannical and unproductive rule and their mistreatment of their subjects. Bob is also one of few known Irkens with a human name.


He is seen with a table strapped to his head, which is also attached to his legs, flattening the top of his head and giving him crooked legs. There is a chance he is even shorter than Zim.


Hobo 13

Bobby Strapped to a Chair

Bob, strapped to a ship heading towards the sun.

His salary was only five monies every two Irk years, which equals twenty Earth years. Almighty Tallest Red and Purple made him bet five hundred thousand monies (which, if calculated correctly, would take him two hundred thousand Irk years or two million Earth years to earn) on Zim surviving the obstacle course on Hobo 13 so that they would not be in debt if he was killed. He was very intolerant of his leaders bossing him around constantly, perhaps being one of few Irkens (so far) that harbors such beliefs. However, Bob ended up winning his bet, and gleefully told the Tallest that they "can serve themselves from now on".

In the end, though, the irritated Tallest strapped him to the back of a chair in the ship they had given Zim. Unknown to Zim, this ship's navigation computer had been locked onto a collision course into a nearby star, in an attempt for the Tallest to kill him and Bob. It seemed to have been a failed attempt, as Zim is alive in the next episode, though it is unlikely that Bob was so lucky - especially given Zim's demonstrated tendency to sacrifice or forget about allies without a thought to save himself.


  • "You can serve YOURSELVES for now on! Nea ha ha haa!"
  • "But I only get five monies every two years."
