  • Species: Cucumber
  • Eye color: Amber

Larry-Boy (commonly structured as LarryBoy) is Larry's alter ego. He is a crime fighting superhero and defender of Bumblyburg.


Main Series

He first appeared on Dave and the Giant Pickle when he wasn't feeling special. After hearing he can still play Larry-Boy and be himself, he plays around again, only to be stuck on the camera throughout the end credits until he gets unstuck and falls.

Understanding he can still pretend to be a superhero, LarryBoy made his first superhero film LarryBoy! And the Fib from Outer Space! in 1997, made another countertop appearance in the fifth segment of VeggieTown Values in 1998 and appeared again in LarryBoy and the Rumor Weed in 1999. LarryBoy appeared on one of the new countertop kitchen segments for Jonah: An Overboard Adventure!, and was the star of his own cartoon adventures, and did not appear again until LarryBoy and the Bad Apple (although was spotted at the end of Sheerluck Holmes and the Golden Ruler and appears in the "outtakes" of Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie). LarryBoy did appear in the Veggie Video "Bob Lends a Helping Hand," and afterward he returned in The League of Incredible Vegetables.

In Merry-Go-Wreck, he is forced to clean a bunch of erasers and heads to the amusement park and stops a commotion caused by Electro-Melon and Lemon Twist and urges the two to work together to fix it.


The inspiration for Larry-Boy came when Big Idea was thinking about doing an episode that spoofs Batman after they had spoofed both Gilligan's Island and Star Trek for the second and third episodes. The initial idea was to make Bob the superhero under the name Bat-Bob. Phil Vischer even had an idea of a teaser scene to show people what the idea would look like: Bat-Bob stands on a roof top in a mask and has along cape behind him and he would strike the pose, "I'm Bat-Bob!" Then the wind would pick up and his cape would fly off of him and fly away with Bob chasing it and he'd be on the edge and he's look down at the street and ask pedestrians for help. Then Vischer thought that Larry would be his sidekick under the name Larry-Boy. The personality for Larry-Boy was just going to be the normal personality of Larry just in a costume.


Fun Facts

  • For Larry-Boy's voice, Mike used a gruff version of Silly Larry's voice.
  • In the cartoon series, he has two different models. Like Larry, he's laid back. But as Larry-Boy, the upper part of his body is angular, making it more like a chest.
  • In "LarryBoy and the Bad Apple," his name is spelled LarryBoy instead of Larry-Boy.
  • In the first two Larry-Boy episodes, he didn't save anything or anyone; rather, Junior stopped the Fib and he and Laura stopped the Rumor Weed. Larry-Boy would later stop The Bad Apple and Dr. Flurry himself (also with Junior's help). Also, in his second appearance he did manage to stop thieves from stealing money.
  • He is sometimes seen wearing a cape.
  • Larry-Boy is the first superhero in the series.
  • The company name of the record label he got his theme song from is called "I'm a Cucumber Records".
  • In The League of Incredible Vegetables, he appeared to be slightly useless and a lot goofier than usual.
  • Larry-Boy's first appearance was in "Dave and the Giant Pickle" and was originally going to be his only appearance. There wasn't any plan for him to come back until great feedback came back after his appearance.
  • Even though he resembles Batman, he resembled Spider-Man in the Bad Apple.
  • There used to be an official website about Larry-Boy when Larry-Boy and the Rumor Weed first came out. It had drawings, coloring pages, a game, and a decoder to find a secret message.
  • In VeggieTales in the House/City, his costume is significantly different than in previous iterations due to an overhaul by DreamWorks, who owned Big Idea at the time. Starting with LarryBoy and the Cape-Coat Caper, it was reverted to its original design.
