Early life and family

Information regarding Gary's early life is limited to the fact that he lived with SpongeBob while SpongeBob lived with his parents. Proof is in the episode Home Sweet Pineapple, when SpongeBob says to Gary, "Well, looks like we have to move back in with Mom and Pop!" Also, young SpongeBob and young Gary are featured in SpongeBob's scrapbook in the episode Have You Seen This Snail?. Gary has one cousin, a snail called Sharm Singh.

In the episode "Rule of Dumb", it was revealed that Gary was the rightful king of Bikini Bottom. Based on the family tree presented to Patrick, Gary's dad, Slugga Star, was one of Billy Bob Star's two sons. The other son was Herb Star, who is Patrick's dad.


General

Since he was a boy, SpongeBob 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. But Gary is revealed to be a "mutt" in the episode The Great Snail Race. Gary tends to disagree with some of SpongeBob's ideas, and usually makes an effort to warn SpongeBob. Sometimes he finds SpongeBob to be a complete annoyance, as does Squidward Tentacles. This is evidenced in the episode Sleepy Time. In the episode, Squidward says, "Don't we get enough of you during the day?" Gary seems to agree with him. Gary ran away from SpongeBob in Have You Seen This Snail? because SpongeBob forgot to feed him. He was then found by an elderly female owner who fed him a lot, and whatever he wanted. It turned out that she had overfed many snails before. Upon seeing fliers that Spongebob made to look for him, he realized that SpongeBob did love him, and so he went back home. Production Order The Great Snail Race is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season three. ...

Production Order Sleepy Time is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season one. ...


Gary is able to levitate and teleport, as seen in the episode Gary Takes A Bath. This could mean that psychic powers run in the Star family, as Patrick Star also can display psychic ability.


Some of Gary's meows are lower pitched, some are higher pitched; these could possibly indicate that Gary uses different tones of his voice to communicate with SpongeBob, who is able to take more meaning out of these than most Bikini Bottomites. Gary has only been seen speaking English three times. Once in the episode, Sleepy Time but that was only a dream, and once in the episode Secret Box but he only made a, "Eer" sound and then said, "No." The third time was in the SpongeBob movie, when Gary had a pair of bucket helmets on his eyes. He chanted "Meow Plankton" in unison with the other mind controlled sea creatures saying "All hail Plankton". This is a list of episodes of the Nickelodeon animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants. ...

SpongeBob Squeezes Tears Of Laughter Out of Snail Tale (865 words)
Titled "Where's Gary?," it's filled with the usual amusing extravagances -- SpongeBob is so determined to master a paddle ball and win a contest that he spends a solid week doing nothing else but practicing (usually hitting himself in the eye) -- but it also has a melancholy undertone.
The "Gary" in the title is SpongeBob's supremely beloved pet, a benign and passive snail who largely keeps to himself, occasionally utters a meek "meow" and, when he does venture out, tends to leave a trail of slime.
It turns out that Gary's devotion to Patrick had everything to do with the treats that Patrick was carrying around in his pocket and nothing to do with Patrick himself.
