Role in episode

SpongeBob buys Puffy Fluffy so that Gary wouldn't be lonely while he is at work.

He takes him from a fortune teller, despite her warnings about how he is unstable and dangerous around other pets. SpongeBob names him Puffy Fluffy and is angered with Gary's scared behavior towards his new "friend." SpongeBob fails to notice anything wrong with Puffy Fluffy, despite Gary acting very abnormal around him.

SpongeBob blames Gary for everything the new pet does, even when seeing him in monster form when Gary is wrapped up by his tongues and almost gets eaten. Despite almost being eaten too, SpongeBob remains oblivious towards the situation.

Puffy Fluffy ends up running away after Gary ties up his tongues together with a leash. As a result, SpongeBob blames Gary for making Puffy Fluffy run away, despite the pet being dangerous and nearly eating them.


  • His multiple tongues might be a reference to the Graboids from the sci-fi film Tremors.
  • When getting Puffy Fluffy from the fortune teller, she says something about the pets being dangerous. This is possibly a reference to the movie Gremlins, in which a man buys a strange pet from a Chinese shop owner, who refuses to sell it to the man because it is dangerous.
    • Due to the vivid resemblance of Puffy Fluffy to mogwai (and gremlins), it is probably midnight or after midnight when he transformed (because of eating). This is the same case as the mogwai from Gremlins.
  • He is the only main episodic character from season 7 who does not appear on the cover of the Complete Seventh Season DVD.
  • In the Croatian dub, his name is "Čupavko," which means "Hairy."
  • Puffy Fluffy was bought at a shop run by a fortune teller.
  • A purple nudibranch similar to Puffy Fluffy appeared in "Gary & Spot".
  • He has a lot of similarities with Bendy from Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends.
    • Both are considered to be the worst characters of their series.
    • They both frame a likable character.
    • Both had somebody warn a protagonist about them.
