Zed animated
In the second film, Zed (played by Bobcat Goldthwait) was portrayed as a hyperactive, antisocial gang leader with eccentric mannerisms, appearance, and taste. Many gags are based around Zed's fondness for things that contrast with his wild-man image, such as Family Affair (actually crying at dramatic moments) and Mickey Mouse watches. Zed is almost like a child, admonishing his cronies to "act their age" while they trash a supermarket and thanking the cashier for the "great bargains" (as his gang trundle shopping carts full of food out of the store). When his gang disrupts an anti-crime street fair sponsored by the Mayor, he tells her: "I voted for you!" He is arrested by Hooks in the end.

In the third film, a reformed Zed (who explains his change of heart by saying: "I used to be a real jerk, but now I'm a people guy!") decides to become a police officer himself. He brought trouble to Sweetchuck, who was the subject of harassment during their civilian years. They become roommates while they are both training at the Police Academy, and they manage to get along (to an extent) with each other in time. He suffers from an inability to speak properly and often squeaks or swallows his words. It is also learned that he gets high on tear gas. His bad breath and screaming, potent enough to blow down a door, are far more powerful weapons than any firearm.

In the fourth film, he falls in love with Laura, one of the Citizens On Patrol.

Zed is in the animated series (along with Sweetchuck). Several family members make guest appearances: Auntie Bertha, the cousins Ed and Ned, and his hillbilly parents. His surname is McGlunk.
