Gary the Snail is SpongeBob's pet snail from SpongeBob SquarePants


Since SpongeBob was a little boy, he has taken the ownership of Gary. Gary is an intelligent, fully domesticated snail. His intelligence shines through in the fact that he has more intelligent solutions to SpongeBob's dilemmas than SpongeBob himself. Gary tends to disagree with some of SpongeBob's ideas, and usually makes an effort to warn him. Gary is generally shown to find SpongeBob oblivious, ignorant and annoying, yet still willingly tolerates him (probably due to the fact that SpongeBob takes care of him), and in many episodes,it is shown that he cares a lot about SpongeBob.

Video GamesEdit

Gary makes cameos as an out of place character that must be sent back home. In one noticable appearance, Francis was fishing, while using Gary as bait.
