This is the page about the snail. For other uses, see Larry (disambiguation).


Larry the Snail is a stray sea snail with a bad attitude. SpongeBob buys him from the pound after Gary had chosen to live with Patrick and Rex had run away. He first appears in the episode "Dumped."


Larry has very thick and bushy black eyebrows on his head. He has an olive-brown shell with light brown dots, a purple curl on his shell, and a pink and jade green underside.

In the video game Lights, Camera, Pants!, he is shown to have a mustache, but a very small one.

Personality and habits

He hates sleeping on newspapers on the floor and would rather sleep on a bed. He hisses when he does not like something or when he does not get his way. His attitude is also not the best.

Role in series


Larry is the second pet that SpongeBob brings home after Gary chooses to live with Patrick, following Rex. One of the first things SpongeBob does with Larry is feeding him. However, Larry hisses at the food and a frightened SpongeBob takes it away.

A little later, SpongeBob prepares himself to go to sleep and had put a bunch of newspapers on the floor for Larry to sleep on. However, Larry hisses and rips up the newspaper and takes over SpongeBob's bed, forcing him to sleep on the floor.

The next day, Larry watches television until SpongeBob interrupts him with a snail joke that he said Gary always loved. Larry however, is not amused by this joke and angrily hisses at SpongeBob, before leaving out of distaste for him and probably runs away like Rex did.
