Turkey Lurkey is a very incompetent official, often in need of assistance from his bodyguards to tell him what to say and do through cue cards.
He tends to get panicky and is somewhat ignorant, scatterbrained, and dim-witted.
Turkey Lurkey is easily distracted, having stopped to pick up a penny, thus stalling the whole town on their way to the baseball field and missing the UFO leaving.
He is also very anxious, tense, and nervous as he is always seen trembling and with a worried face and apparently doesn't know how to cope with difficult situations, offering the aliens Tic-Tacs just because he drew a blank on what to do.
Turkey Lurkey is a turkey with brown feathers, an orange beak and feet, and hazel eyes.
He wears a black tuxedo with a purple tie, a white shirt, and a black stove pipe top hat.
