    Larry the Lobster (season 6)

    Larry the Lobster
    "Larry the Lobster" feels more like "Larry the Loser" once you remove all the qualities that make him well a loved and memorable character.
    Gender: Male
    Type: Idiotic Cowardly Jerk
    Age: Adult
    Species: Anthropomorphic Lobster
    Portrayed by: Doug Lawrence
    Status: Alive
    Media of origin: SpongeBob SquarePants
    First appearance: Ripped Pants


    Larry the Lobster is a recurring side character in SpongeBob SquarePants. He is a muscular red lobster who, along with Scooter, is a common attendee of Goo Lagoon. He first appears in the episode "Ripped Pants". He is voiced by Doug Lawrence (and he is commonly known as Mr. Lawrence).

    While he was a good character in first five seasons and 7-onwards, he was sadly flanderized during season 6.

    "Larry the Loser!" Qualities

    1. Flanderization: Rather than being the fun loving muscular bodybuilder, he became a big cowardly jerk in this season.
    2. He didn't really appear that much in the sixth season, though this can be excused/justified since he is a supporting/recurring character.
    3. He also shows signs of idiocy:
      • In the episode "Pet or Pests", when he ran into SpongeBob SquarePants, he claims not to have met him which is weird because during the past seasons, they've met before.
        • It got even worse when he thought a bunch of baby worms were food and almost tried to eat them. Luckily, SpongeBob saved them before he could.
    4. In the not well received game SpongeBob SquarePants: Revenge of the Flying Dutchman, he was very out of character being hostile to SpongeBob.
    5. Overall, his flanderization destroyed most of his reputation. In other words, he somewhat gives the original Larry the Lobster a bad name.

    "Do You Wanna Go Lift Some Weights?" Qualities

    1. He was a much better character in the first five seasons and massively redeemed himself in the next season onwards.
    2. Doug Lawrence still does a fantastic job voicing him.
    3. He was also much better liked in "Kamp Koral".
    4. He angrily chases SpongeBob in casts and bandages which was justified on the count that he was disappointed and furious with SpongeBob who got himself and Patrick nearly crazy killed.

    Trivia

    • Larry was the first character from the show that recovered from his flanderization, as season 6 was the only season from the dark era of SpongeBob SquarePants where his character fell from grace.
