Gary's food bowl is a bowl that belongs to Gary the Snail and is seen in most episodes that feature him.
Gary's food bowl is often seen on top of two newspapers. The bowl is dark green and contains Gary's name on it in dark olive green text.
Role in series
SpongeBob frequently pours food into this bowl whenever Gary is hungry, or sometimes he will already have done it. In the episode "Have You Seen This Snail?," Gary runs away because of SpongeBob forgetting to fill his food bowl and 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 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."
