Gary's Food Bowl belongs to Gary and is seen in most episodes of the series with Gary in them.
Gary's Food Bowl is often seen on top of two newspapers. The bowl is dark green with the name "GARY" in dark olive-green on it. In the episode "Have You Seen This Snail?," Gary runs away because of SpongeBob forgets to fill his food bowl, later SpongeBob realizes that Gary is missing when he looks at his food bowl.
Gary's bowl once said "LARY." This is because in the episode "Dumped," SpongeBob got a new snail he named Lary.
In "A Pal For Gary," SpongeBob wrote "/PUFFY FLUFFY" so it said "GARY/PUFFY FLUFFY." This was so Gary could share it with his "friend."
In some video games, Gary's bowl was purple instead of green.
