Err is one of the Mooninites and is Ignignokt's small, pink companion.


Err has an appearance similar to a character from a very early home video game system. He is extremely pixelated, to the point of being an unrecognizable object. Err is pink and blue, and he speaks with a very high pitched voice. He has a permanent scowl.


Like Ignignokt, Err is mischievous to the highest degree. Err's pranks don't just include prank calls and graffiti, but also mindless destruction and convincing others, usually Meatwad, to do bad things like shoplifting, swearing, and drug abuse. Err often does these bad things himself. He often steals things, and he has mentioned sending "illegal substances up the river."[1] Err is the more violent and sadistic of the two.

In Moonajuana, he did admit that his personality is the result of his terrible upbringing (his dad was an alcoholic and possibly abusive, and his mother abandoned him at a summer camp). He also goes on to explain that he merely acts out for attention. He also says he misses his dad, doesn't know where his mom went and believes nobody really wants him around and that's what makes him cry; he cried as he admitted this. Though afterwards as the series progress, he acts the same regardless.

Err almost always blindly follows Ignignokt's plans to mess with the Aqua Teens. However, in some instances, he seems to be doing this against his better judgement. For example, Err said he was aware that the check that Ignignokt was trying to cash was actually a bill in Remooned.


Relationships with Other Characters[]


It is obvious that Err is Ignignokt's sidekick, from time to time Err will repeat what Ignignokt says and most of the time, he follows his orders with no question. He does sometimes disobeys his orders or disagrees with Ignignokt and even pranks him. Despite it, Ignignokt is Err's only real friend in the show. 


Like Ignignokt, Err and Frylock share a mutual distaste towards one another, due to the fact that he frquently foils their attempts at scamming people. Err was however impressed with Frylock's ability to shoot laser out of eyes, and he confided to him of his terrible upbringing.


Err particularly enjoys coercing Meatwad to do bad things more so than his partner (ex. smoking, drinking, stealing, etc), but like Ignignokt, he doesn't care much for him at all, evident when he left Meatwad to get arrested for stealing a rack of DVDs.

Master Shake[]

Out of all the Aqua Teens, Err seems rather neutral towards Shake since they share some things in common, though he is still willing to manipulate and scam him for his own benefit as shown in "Moon Master" and "Moonajuana".


Err and Carl are rather enemies than anything because of them frequently breaking into Carl's house stealing his possessions (i.e his pornography, swimming in his pool without permission, and the like). He is also frequently throws insults towards him (like calling him "Fat Man").

  • According to the DVD commentary for "Mayhem of the Mooninites," Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro drew inspiration for The Mooninites from an urban legend. They had heard that there were so many returned copies of "E.T. the Extra Terrestrial" for Atari 2600 that the publishers buried them in the desert. Err and Ignignokt were originally intended to be the ghosts of that video game burial.
  • If Err was intended to be a sprite from a fictitious video game, then his appearance is illogical. Err is composed of pixels of different sizes. This would be not be possible for Atari 2600 games.
  • In certain episodes, such as "The Granite Family," Err's voice sounds different than it normally does. Matt Maiellaro, the voice of Err, has stated that this is due to his cold.
  • He doesn't make any appearances in Season 7 or Season 12.
