Dr. Snoozemore (parsed Dr Snoozemore in the British English version) is a character who appears in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. He is the proprietor of Pi'illo Island who studies the science of sleep due to the special power that makes people sleep. He appears to occasionally go to sleep during parts of his dialogue, much to Toadsworth's and Starlow's frustration.

History[edit]

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team[edit]

Dr. Snoozemore appearing on the big screen in Pi'illo Castle.

At the beginning of the game, he first appears when Broggy reveals his communication screen behind his bandage. He then talks to Mario, Luigi, Toadsworth and Peach through it. During Luigi's nightmare, he also tells them about another passenger aboard the blimp, who is actually Antasma. Snoozemore is away on a business trip when they arrive at the island, but he sends another message about the history of Pi'illo Island when they arrive at Pi'illo Castle. Later in the game, he returns to the island and tells the Bros. about the Zeekeeper, the only being which can shatter the barrier guarding Neo Bowser Castle.
