"Hey! How's it going?"

Doris is one of Cinderella's stepsisters, and first appears in Shrek 2 and is seen another time in Shrek the Third. She has a sister named Mabel, who is on the side of the villains, and is included in Fiona's princess circle, even though Doris is not a princess. She also seems to get along well with Cinderella.


Shrek 2

Doris is first seen in Shrek 2, when King Harold secretly enters the Poison Apple Club, in which she is working as a bartender. She recommends Puss In Boots to the king for the task of assassinating Shrek. Near the climax of the film, Doris points King Harold to a door guarded by the Fairy Godmother's bodyguards, behind which Prince Charming and the Fairy Godmother are secretly meeting. At first, she has a crush on Prince Charming and forces him to kiss her at the end of the film. In Far Far Away Idol, she is accused by Simon Cowell of being ugly after she sings Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun".

Shrek The Third

In Shrek the Third, Doris becomes one of Shrek's best friends before the events of the film. At the beginning of the film, Doris is briefly mentioned by Mabel when Prince Charming visits the Poison Apple. Mabel says that Doris does not belong here, and this indicates that Doris is living with Princess Fiona in the castle. She is also seen during Fiona's baby shower, but she escapes by a hidden trapdoor when Charming starts to enter the castle. Later, she is imprisoned by Charming after he invades Far Far Away. With the princesses, Donkey and Puss, she escapes and infiltrates the castle to confront Charming. In the end, Doris and Mabel finally meet in Charming's play and reconcile when Artie convinces the villains not to continue their villainous ways when they didn't get their happily ever after.

Shrek Forever After

Doris appears very briefly in Shrek Forever After at the ogre triplets' birthday party.

Thriller Night

She made a background cameo among with Snow WhiteRapunzelMabelCinderella, and Sleeping Beauty.



Doris is an unusually masculine female who works at the Poison Apple. She has a deep male voice and sports make-up similar to that of a drag queen; which includes blue eye-shadow and prominent drawn-on eyebrows. She has brown hair styled in a crown braid and she wears a purple floor length dress in all the movies she is in. Many of the characters find her very unappealing, with some even doubting her gender. A few examples would be Fiona saying, "You go...girl?" during her singing performance of "Girls just wanna have fun" in Far Far Away Idol. Simon also accuses her of being ugly as well. In Shrek the Third, Snow White retracts her statement of how many beautiful princesses there were in the group when she looks at Doris, who responds by glaring at her. It is unknown why she has a male voice, though it could be to make her more unattractive.


  • Doris is voiced by Larry King in the US, and Jonathan Ross in the UK.
  • She is seen as a cross-dressing male/ Transgender woman to some viewers.
