The Hypnotoad is a large toad with oscillating, multicolored eyes, who can hypnotize anything at will, including an entire crowd of Humans, by making a loud, buzzing noise. It is an Earthican celebrity, and has two shows of its own: Everybody Loves Hypnotoad, which it writes, directs and produces, and Hypnotoad On Ice.


The Hypnotoad has used its ability on many: a few sheep and the judges at a pet show,[3ACV07] an announcer, whom it hypnotized to death,[BBS] and the viewers of the return of Futurama.[6ACV01] It also had its image shown in the V-GINY, which suggests it is censorable,[6ACV02] one of its webisodes featured on the eyePhone,[6ACV03] and Hypnotoad On Ice interrupted by breaking news on Hedonismbot.[6ACV07] With no relevance to the story, it was seen in Everybody Loves Hypnotoad numerous times.[4ACV06][6ACV11] The Hypnotoad is rarely seen not hypnotizing.[ItWGY]

In 3017, the Hypnotoad hypnotized Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth, making him order the Planet Express crew to take him to Amphibios 9. Once there, the Hypnotoad commenced his buzzing noise, making hypnowaves that revealed the female hypnotoad from a perpendicular universe.

The universe was pulled into the hypnowaves, but Lord Nibbler saved Philip J. Fry from being sucked in as well. Fry worked with Nibbler, then later Professor Farnsworth, to restore New New York and the rest of Earth, as well as the other planets in the universe.Disputed canon

As a meme

The Hypnotoad is also a well known meme (also known as an Internet phenomenon).[1] It is used as an interruptor of sorts. Its usage usually involves it being mentioned in a sentence, which is abruptly interrupted in the middle with ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD.


  • "Hypnotoad is stuALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD."
  • "Why is this Hypnotoad video so popuALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD."
