"Dance with me Lampy!"
— Awful Alvin with Lampy

Awful Alvin is one of Larry-Boy's enemies. He is the main antagonist of LarryBoy: The Cartoon Adventures.


Awful Alvin lives in an underground lair beneath the memorial statue of Sir Lester Bumbly, using the statue's monocle as a telescope to spy on Bumblyburg. He lives with his henchman Lampy. Together, they tried to find ways to defeat Larry-Boy and take over Bumblyburg.

His master plan was to unleash his armada of Angry Eyebrows to make the citizens of Bumblyburg go mad. Things go well until Larry-Boy tries to stop his dastardly deeds, and decides make him angry and still the eyebrows on him. But this fails, and commands his armada to destroy the plunger head hero.


Awful Alvin is your typical comic relief villain; insane, hyperactive, boastful, hammy and over-the-top. He is very childish and commits petty crimes, such as making angry eyebrows to get everyone to hate each other for fun. Alvin is very childish and thinks his henchman, Lampy is real.

Physical Appearance

Awful Alvin is a scallion with bushy brownish-green eyebrows, green hair and fangs. He wears a high-collared two-toned purple Dracula-type cape, a purple vest with a black belt. He also wears a monocle on his right eye, which enlarges one of his eyes and gives him a crazed appearance.

In The VeggieTales Show, his appearance is typically the same as his original one, except his coat is now dark purple and red instead of two-toned purple, his belt is blue instead of black, and his vest is a lighter shade of purple. Part of his cape also hangs nearly halfway over his vest.

Fun Facts

  • According to Tom Bancroft, Awful Alvin was originally an artichoke. However, they changed him to a scallion because they didn't feel like an artichoke had enough feeling to it (plus, they can't dance).
  • In some promo shots, he had the monocle on his left eye.
  • According to the story treatment, he was going to be a Lex Luthor type of villain with an Igor type of assistant. He was also getting revenge at LarryBoy for locking him up many years ago. This might explain why he states "My revenge is complete" in the episode.
  • In one of the original postponed covers, he was originally going to have two henchmen before they stuck with Lampy.
