Zipperneck was one of Chairface Chippendale's henchmen, a big, hairy-chested thug who had a zipper in the front of his neck. This allowed him to unzip himself to show off the insides of his throat and gross out his opponents. He assisted the Forehead and Boils Brown in stealing the Geissman lenses, but was defeated by the Tick.
Although Zipperneck never actually appeared in any of the episodes of the live-action Tick series, he was mentioned by the Tick in the episode Arthur Needs Space. According to the Tick, Zipperneck wouldn't want to be Stacy Waxman on her date with Arthur.
