Joey, also known as "the Grouchy Guy", is an anthropomorphic Knox who doesn't like Green Eggs and Ham  until the end of the story, and also serves as the narrator in the book Green Eggs and Ham.

Green Eggs and Ham

Joey first appears reading a newspaper inside a lounge when suddenly Sam-I-Am interrupts him, boasting about who he is. Joey, fed up with Sam, states that he does not like his behavior, as he finds it annoying. Sam then interrupts his monologue, asking if he would like to try "green eggs and ham" to which he refuses, stating "I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like it Sam-I-Am".

Sam goes to great measures to convince him to try the dish, as far as suggesting various locations (such as in a car, on a train and on a boat) and alongside various animals (such as a mouse, a fox, and a goat). Each time, Joey angrily refuses and repeats everything Sam previously suggested.

Eventually, after he is seemingly trap with Sam (as well as all the other individuals Sam previously suggested he eat the dish with), Joey tells Sam that if eats tries the dish then he will "Let him be" to which Sam agrees. Joey eats the dish, and to his surprise, he likes it telling Sam "I do so like green eggs and ham. Thank you, thank you, Sam-I-Am".
