The Jockeys are small, malicious creatures that appear in the Simpsons episode "Saddlesore Galactica".

They pose as average horse jockeys and wears helmets and changes their voices in order to blend with the humans. When not disguised, the Jockeys are squeaky-voiced, pointy eared monsters who reside in a strange land near the racing tracks. In their only appearance so far they kidnap Homer Simpson due to the success of his horse. They sing him a song, threatens him with the prospect of eating his brain and finally returns him to the normal world. Since they only appear in one episodes the Jockeys existence may be non-canon.


  • The Jockeys are loosely based on the Oompa Loompas from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory books. Like the Oompa Loompas they sing a song and live in a small, colorful place.
  • The Jockeys are almost universally disliked by the Simpsons' fandom due to their outlandishness.
