Class 4 article

Chef Gordon Zola is a chef minifigure released in 2003 as part of World City, and released again in 2014 as part of the LEGO Movie theme.


Dressed much like other chefs, Gordon Zola wears a white chef coat with a red neckerchief, grey pants, and a white Mini Bakers Hat. His face is printed with a smiling facial expression and a large black handlebar mustache.

In his appearance in The LEGO Movie theme, Gordon Zola's pants were updated to medium stone grey, and his smile was changed to a frightened expression; however, his original smile is seen in The Emmet Awards Show!, confirming that both faces represent the same character with different emotions. Since the two minifigures are otherwise identical, it is likely that both represent the same character.

A flesh-skin toned variation of Gordon Zola appears in The LEGO Batman Movie.


World City

Gordon Zola works at Grand Central Station, where he cooks pizzas for passengers and travelers.

The LEGO Movie

However, he appears as one of the Master Builders who secretly meet in Cloud Cuckoo Land. When Lord Business unleashes his Micro Managers in Bricksburg, Gordon Zola is saved by Garbage Man Dan and Garbage Man Grant in their rebuilt Trash Chomper.
