- "We're gonna build a maze!"
- ~King Joey
King Joey used to work for Karl alongside his fellow rats, but then when Karl got defeated, they had nothing else to do and decided to form their own kingdom. So, Maurice secretly moonlighted as their royal adviser, but eventually went back to working with King Julien.
Joey is not very bright (basically dumb), since all he does is think about building a maze and forgets where things are located, even if they are right in front of him. Whenever someone points out a thing he missed, he often slaps himself by saying, "Stupid, stupid!" He is extremely gullible and forgetful, which made it easy for Pam to trick him into marrying her.
