Lary the Snail is a stray snail with a bad attitude that SpongeBob had brought home from the pound after Gary had chosen to live with Patrick instead.
He has only appears in the episode Dumped. Lary has very bushy black eyebrows that resembles Udon's eyebrow on his head. He hates sleeping on newspapers on the floor and would rather sleep on a bed. He hisses when he does not like something, or he doesn't get his way. In the video game Lights, Camera, Pants!, he's a pet of the Sneaky Hermit.
He makes a cameo in Lights, Camera, Pants! as The Sneaky Hermit's pet snail.
He also has a mustache in Lights, Camera, Pants!, but a very small one.
In "Gary's New Toy", when Gary hisses at the end, he looks like Larry.
His name is similar to the SpongeBob crew member Larry Leichliter, who was the animation director to the episode this episode is paired with and is also similar to Larry the Lobster's name.
