He is from a fictional country called Yakestonia. He is not prominent in the show until the Disney version. In the Disney Christmas episode, he thinks Christmas is Halloween, and Halloween is Easter, so he gets his holidays mixed up. He was known for his bizarre cultural greetings and other traditions. For instance, when greeting someone he would place his hand under his armpit and make "toot" gestures, while continually saying "Zwooba, zwooba, zwooba!". At one point, he gave Doug a jar of fresh Yakestonian air as a gift. He is voiced by Fred Newman.
