Larry the Lobster 
is a recurring character who usually appears in the background crowd shots or at the beach. He is a lobster who is very buff and loves spending time at Goo Lagoon. His first appearance was in Ripped Pants. In that episode, he was unknowingly portrayed by SpongeBob as an antagonist. SpongeBob's song inspired Larry, and he gets SpongeBob's autograph at the end of the episode. SpongeBob and Larry are usually shown to be acquaintances for much of the series and seem to maintain a solid relationship. Nevertheless, in Pet or Pests, Larry acts as though if he does not know who SpongeBob is. Surprisingly, SpongeBob does not seem at all surprised by this. Three episodes that focus on Larry are Sponge Guard on Duty, A Life in a Day, and Larry's Gym. He is voiced by Mr. Lawrence who also voices Plankton.

Health Problems

Though Larry is very fit, he has experienced a number of health issues in his life:

  • SpongeBob reveals in Band Geeks that Larry's heart once gave out due to him taking too many tanning pills, and Larry had to be revived by some guy in an ambulance.
  • Larry was also noted to suffer terrible body order from the adrenaline he experienced riding the Fiery Fist O'Pain, in Roller Cowards.
