Phil Collins is a musician who first appears in the Season Four episode, "Timmy 2000", in which the winner of the Battle of the Bands gets to open for Collins' concert, and then later appeared in the Season Fourteen episode, "200".
In "Timmy 2000", Collins, who is always seen clutching an Oscar, is upset with The Lords of the Underworld because of the way they use Timmy in their band. He successfully breaks up the band by convincing Skyler that Timmy is stealing his thunder. He allows Skyler's new solo band, Reach for the Skyler, to perform at his concert. After the kids are taken off Ritalin at the festival, Collins is promptly booed off the stage. While The Lords of The Underworld begin playing, he is thrown around in the audience and his Oscar is shoved up his ass.
At the concert, Collins sings a parody of "You'll Be in My Heart", as the creators' revenge for "Blame Canada" from South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut losing the Oscar to Collins - the reason being that, while Stone and Parker were prepared to lose the Academy Award for Best Original Song, they were not prepared to lose it to Phil Collins.
Collins later returns in the episode "200" as one of the celebrities suing the town. He and Jared Fogle are sent by Tom Cruise to pick up Muhammad, but they are killed when their limo was blown up by Ginger Kids.
He is very arrogant, vengeful, and manipulative. He shows off his Oscar wherever he goes, even though his music shown to be terrible when he performs. He goes out of his way and uses dishonest means to get what he wants. He outwardly expresses his displeasure at Timmy joining the Lords of the Underworld, claiming that people are making fun of him for being handicapped, but it is likely that he is just jealous of the band's success. He goes to extreme measures to break up the band; first by visiting Timmy's parents and later convincing Skyler to leave the band by making him believe that Timmy is stealing his fame.
Phil Collins wears a white long-sleeved shirt, jeans, and can be seen holding an Oscar trophy. He has a noticeable 5 o'clock shadow, visible signs of aging, and has receding brown hair. He is almost always scowling.
His crossed eyes and speaking mannerisms imply that Collins is mentally handicapped in some way.
- In the Mandarin Chinese dub, he is named after Gan Giau Long, a popular Taiwanese webtoon character.
