Eric the Blob is a blob alien that made his only appearance in the episode "The Frycook What Came from All That Space". Eric is a member of an unknown species, which is presumably in alliance with the Irken Empire.

He is a regular customer at Shloogorgh's Flavor Monster, showing up every day and consistently taking a long time to place his order (much to Zim's aggravation, although its possible he was exaggerating) The words on Eric's cap and pants together say "Eet Food."

When Sizz-Lorr made Zim dance in a costume filled with white-hot grease to cheer up Eric, he greeted Zim and asked why he was sad. Eric learned of his predicament as well as noticing the Vortian 'Splodey System, this would end up being Zim's ticket to freedom as Eric told him how to bypass the security system.

He previously worked on installing security systems like it on Planet Vort (and possibly other planets under Irken rule). Eric ultimately became an unwitting accomplice in Zim's escape plan from Foodcourtia.

When Zim hid himself in Eric's food he was eaten (but not digested) by the blob, once in Eric's stomach, Zim was protected from detection as the blob made his way out of the restaurant.

Once outside, Zim burst impressively out of Eric's stomach; Eric himself seemed only mildly surprised by the fact that a fugitive Irken defective had been inside his belly. It's assumed that afterwards Eric stayed for The Great Foodening.
