Graknils are an alien species in the Spaceman Spiff universe. A single specimen appeared in a very early Sunday strip[1].

The Graknil specimen featured was a yellow-spotted, green mass about twice as large as Spiff. It had tentacles for legs, a forked tongue and a piglike snout. Spiff encountered it on Planet Zorg, and considered it hostile. It seemed highly resilient as Spiff was unable to destroy it with his "Atomic napalm neutralizer".
