Joseph Gilman, also known as Fishy Joe, is the owner of various restaurant chains, such as Fishy Joe's fast food franchise and Family Bros. Pizza. He is also the leader of Circus Roboticus. Gilman mostly sells any kind of animal at his restaurants as long as it tastes well, and will buy any kind of products if it is popular. He doesn't care about the environment and, as a result, is hated by MEAT.

Biography[edit]

He can be blamed for the Second Omicronian Invasion of Earth as he was the one selling Popplers (at Fishy Joe's) in the first place. [2ACV15] He also bought the Family Bros. Pizza franchise for $100,000 because of its biggest seller, Leela's Bean Pizza, which consists of six kinds of beans, plus several things that look like beans. [3ACV16] In 3007 he unintentionally mated with a planet-sized monster, [TBwaBB] and he attended the ceremony for the implosion of the violet dwarf star. [ItWGY]

In 3010 he is the owner of a circus with attractions such as Nonchalanto and Robot Clowns. [6ACV10]

Production[edit]

In the commentary for "The Problem with Popplers", it is stated that the Gilman last name is simply because "fish have gills". Coincidently, in the classic H. P. Lovecraft story The Shadow Over Innsmouth, a fishy character named Gilman runs the Gilman Hotel.
