You have any idea how much that stings?
—Jeebs, regrowing his head after it was blown off.

Jack Jeebs is an alien living on Earth in the disguise of a pawn shop owner who deals in stolen objects, both alien and human. Jeebs has always been a shady character but has proved useful for Agents Kay and Jay. He has watches and other such stuff for humans, but he also has highly illegal alien technology and guns for the aliens. Jeebs is played by Tony Shalhoub in the films and for a few episodes of the animated series, and is voiced by Billy West in the remainder of the animated series.

Indigenous Appearance

Jeebs is an unknown species of alien. His head can be shot off, and it regrows immediately, but never looks exactly the same and stings immensely while regrowing. This has caused Jeebs getting his head shot off to become a running gag in the films and show (mostly when he either angers Jay or Kay, or he refuses to tell them when they need information that he has). It appears that it will grow back no matter what, and it can regrow an infinite amount of times.

History

Men in Black

Jeebs was the owner of a pawn shop that dealt in questionably obtained objects. Jeebs claimed to have not dealt in alien weaponry in five years, but in reality still sold arms to unlicensed aliens. James Edwards seemed to know Jeebs very well as a cop, so Jeebs must have had several run-ins with the police. After Kay blew off Jeebs' head, he admitted to selling a reverberating carbonizer with mutate capacity to an unlicensed cephalopoid. Jeebs response was "He looked alright to me."

Men in Black: The Series

Animated Jeebs

Jeebs in the Animated Series

Jeebs appeared in a few episodes of the series. Jeebs was the owner of a pawn shop that dealt in questionably obtained objects. Jeebs claimed to have not dealt in alien weaponry in five years, but in reality still sold arms to unlicensed aliens.  It is also revealed that he has a brother (and the two once became fused together when they were both shot and regenerated in close proximity of each other).  It is also revealed that he can survive without oxygen to breathe, but he still needs oxygen to regrow limbs.

Men in Black II

Despite his shady dealings, Jeebs proves to be very helpful in the second movie, restoring Kay's memory with an unlicensed (and outdated) deneuralizer. His pawn shop basement was largely destroyed during a fight with Serleena's henchmen, and it can be presumed Jeebs had it fixed.
