Crab People appeared in the episode "South Park is Gay!". They ran a show called Queer Eye for the Straight Guy disguised as homosexual men. They are often heard chanting "Crab people, Crab people. Taste like crab, talk like people."

Background

In "South Park is Gay!", their plans of taking over the world, by making everyone metrosexual, is revealed to Kyle Broflovski. Their goal was to make all the men weak, so an invasion would be easy, due to them being small and weak themselves. If they are unable to force people to be metrosexual, they dress them up in typical Crab People garb, claiming that this makes them one of them. The TV producers said they did it before on the Jeffersons.

In "Quest for Ratings", Eric Cartman suggested Crab People while brainstorming ideas for a news show.

They were also mentioned at the end of "Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow", where they were blamed for destroying the Beaverton dam.

Appearance

Crab People are anthropomorphic crabs, vaguely resembling anthropomorphized coconut crabs in appearance. They're colored like crabs and have crab-like features, such as antennae, claws, and crab shells. In "South Park is Gay!", they take on human disguises, disguising themselves as the cast of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy
