"One cannot, strictly speaking, measure colour instrumentally, because it is a subjective sensation. In everyday conversation, one compares colours to some readily understood physical standard, e.g. orange, lemon, cream".

"Careful observations by qualified observers have shown, in fact, that the defining features of the concept of colour are not, and probably cannot be, realised at will, even in the experimental laboratory".

i know that colour recognition is gained at an early age and that is purely the way that an individual percieves the world around them. for us to recognise a colour as such we need to be taught by another that an object that is blue, IS blue.

so we can only assume that when you were young, your parents told u that something pink was in actual fact red. maybe some of your items of clothing.....

shall i start a zoidberg - pink or red thread? (got kind of a ring to it hasn't it??)

Haha, look at the ballbearings on this guy!  Well, Flexo, here you are:

   

Here is a picture (much thanks to Paul and his website) of Zoidberg without his shell.  Zoidberg, ladies and gentlemen, is pink.  His shell, however, is more of a reddish orange, more reddish.

So here's an experiment.  Put on a red shirt, then some red pants (or trousers, if you prefer).  Does your skin turn red?  No eh?  Didn't think so.  So, in conclusion, nay sayers, Zoidberg is pink.  Thank you.

But his shell is different from clothing. He wears clothes on top of his shell. So really, the shell would be comparable to our skin. Underneath our skin, we are red. Underneath Zoidberg's shell, he is pink.

But we don't count that, we just look at our exteriors. We are white/black/chinese, while Zoidberg is red.

We look at our exteriors because we don't have shells, so my fault for relating this to humans and their clothes in the first place.  The main thing is, the question asks if Zoidberg is pink or red, and he's pink.  The more proper way to state the question would be "Zoidberg's shell: red or pink?"

For you crazy purists, here is a raw (really raw) image from the same ep.  Still Zoidberg and still pink.

thanks drippyT

so what you are saying is that zoidberg, in a way similar to a hermit crab, changes his shell. we even see different colour shells in the episode when he gets rid of the orange/pink/red one and try on new ones such as the white one with the bar code. zoidberg himself is very much PINK PINKERTY PINKY PINK!   :p

in the picture he has no shell. so he's molted or whatever.  So his new shell hasn't formed, so his "skin" is soft and transparenty and stuff.  Like a soft shell crab, the new shell hasn't hardened properly yet.  And when it is done, it turns darker.  Since pink is a lightened form of Red.. you can't really say that that picture proves he is pink.  Now i didn't actually bother to click to see the other picture  :) but my point is that you can't prove he is pink by the picture shown.  And this is no more long or boring that the original post, and i'd like to think it at least made the same amount of sense... no offense intended to anyone

none taken, what with some people being ABLE to take a joke and not getting annoyed about not understanding something....

please could someone remember the name of the episode where zoidberg discards his old shell and needs to BUY and new one and does NOT form it by his skin hardening.

could drippy_T or anyone else get me screen grabs of when he trys on other shells?

of course he is an alien that doesn't really exist and all of futurama is all made up so he could be anything really and it is all irrelevent

yeah it was very funny - he had a holographic projector to show what the shells would look like on him if he purchased them but had to get his old one from the trash because he couldn't afford any of them.  ;)

Zoidberg:  "Bad news friends.  My shell ran!"

Now why would he be washing his shell if he was just going to grow another one and discard the old one?    :D  SO!  One can conclude that underneath the shell, Zoidberg is a pinkish color.  Thas muh story and I'm stickin-tuh-it!   :p

The thing is though I agree with you, the shopping for shells and the "My shell ran!" thing were just to be funny - and it really doesn't matter what color Zoidberg is, we all still love him.

I'd say Zoidberg is light red, like a watermelon.  Compare him to Fry's jacket, which is true dark red.

Maybe he cried his eyed red some time ago and just liked the color so he paints himself red every morning - and below that color he's pink, of course..
