Rigger is seen as Hoggish Greedly's regular sidekick who does all the leg-work while Greedly usually sits around and eats. Rigger is voiced by John Ratzenberger.


Rigger is a small, thin man with a blonde ponytail. He wears blue jeans, fingerless gloves, boots, a red singlet (wifebeater) and a green vest. He also wears a baseball cap.

He has a long, thin nose and bucked teeth, as well as a small beard on his chin.

A typical yes-man, Rigger has several speech habits, often inserting several "yeps" into his sentences and repeating his words. He always calls Greedly "Mr. Greedly" and appears to be intimidated by his boss. He once claimed that the main reason he works for Greedly is because no one else would hire him. He does sometimes question Greedly's orders and sometimes shows concern or hesitation when Greedly's actions hurt the environment though it never has any effect on his boss, and Rigger, for the most part, remains loyal to Greedly.

During the episode The Ghost of Porkaloin Past, the Planeteers make numerous attempts to convince Greedly to reform for good. While Greedly himself is indifferent, Rigger begins to show numerous signs that he is starting to regret his actions and may become an environmentalist in the future. At the end of the episode, Rigger is hired by a new, eco-friendly, employer and announces that he's done with working for Greedly, but it's up to debate if this was the final episode for Rigger chronologically.
