- Zurg is Buzz Lightyear's arch-enemy. He has appeared in the Buzz Lightyear TV show as an evil space villain, commanding armies of bee-like robots. In a LEGO Club Magazine Toy Story comic, he kidnaps three aliens.
- In Toy Story 2, he declares that he is Buzz's father. This is a reference to the scene in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, when Darth Vader reveals to Luke that they are father and son.
- He is voiced by Wayne Knight in Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, who also portrayed Dennis Nedry in Jurassic Park.
- Ironically, Knight also voiced Al in Toy Story 2.
- His mask is based on Death's Head in the Marvel Comics
