  • Gary's bowl once said "LARY." This is because in the episode "Dumped," SpongeBob gets a new snail named "Lary."
  • In "A Pal For Gary," SpongeBob writes "/PUFFY FLUFFY" so it says "GARY/PUFFY FLUFFY." This is so Gary can share it with his "friend."
  • In some video games, Gary's bowl is purple instead of green.
  • In "Rule of Dumb," Gary's bowl is orange instead of green.
  • In "Snooze You Lose," Gary's bowl is used as a popcorn bowl by SpongeBob.
