The Donut Cop is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He is the sheriff of the city of Elmore, but is not very good at doing his job.


The Donut Cop is, as his name suggests, a giant, pink donut. Since he is the sheriff of Elmore, he wears an officer's hat, a star-shaped badge, and a blue policeman's uniform.

Since he is a donut, he has a large hole in the middle of his body, which has some large, flat teeth resembling popsicle sticks sticking out, and it functions as his mouth. Strangely, he has pronounced eyelashes, which are usually used on female characters.


The Donut Cop does not seem to be a very capable sheriff since he is extremely oblivious towards any actual criminal activity, often not noticing when something is not right. In "The Friend," he is seen relying entirely on a manual to tell him what to do, accidentally causing the Chimera to explode and injuring many of his men. The episode "The Law" shows that the Donut Cop would do anything just to prove one simple point, showing that he can get carried away with his ideas.

He shows more of his capabilities in "The Law" with his determination to enforce law and order in Elmore. However, in "The Pizza," he joins in on the chaos, committing crimes himself as he was not paid by Larry for his duties.

He also does not seem to realize that his mouth goes through his body. Anything he throws into his mouth ends up going through him and on the ground behind him. Because of this, he is always hungry. His favorite food seems to be coffee and donuts, which is ironic, because he himself is a donut.

I'm sorry. But that's the law, kid. Crime is a slippery slope. If I turn a blind eye on the smallest misdemeanor, before you know it, the whole society falls apart.

—Donut Cop to Gumball in "The Law"

The worst part about this job is you give people a second chance and you still end up having to taze them.

—Donut Cop to Richard and Mr. Robinson in "The Tag"
Gumball: Officer! Do something!
Donut Cop: Nuh-uh! I'm on two stars here. One bad review, and I could be busted down to traffic cop. And then I'd have to do something.
—- Donut Cop in "The Stars"


  • He is armed with what appears to be a stun gun.
  • His animation style closely resembles claymation.
  • His appearance and job are a reference to the stereotype that policemen frequently eat donuts on the job.
  • In "The Ghost," it is shown that he is edible, since Carrie (in Gumball's body) takes a bite out of him.
  • "The Law" is his first and only major role.
  • The Donut Cop shares several similarities with Chief Wiggum from The Simpsons. For example, he appears to be incapable of working with the police due to his ignorance, his voice sounds similar to Wiggum, and he likes to eat donuts frequently.
  • Even though he himself is a donut, he is shown craving donuts in "The Spoon." This proves that the Donut Cop is a cannibal, just like Sarah, who is sometimes seen eating vanilla ice cream cones, and Anton, who is seen consuming sandwiches in numerous episodes.
  • In "The Law," he is fired for "misuse of his police siren, unlawful discharge of his weapon, baby bashing, assault with a motorized vehicle, grand theft auto, and absolute disregard for traffic regulations." Later in the episode, he is re-hired by the commissioner.
  • He has feelings for the female coffee cop, as revealed in "The Shippening."
