Laurence "Larry" Needlemeyer is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He works at almost every store in the town of Elmore, usually as a cashier. He generally dislikes the Watterson family. Larry manages to keep up with all his jobs by "working very hard", but he has been fired on at least one occassion. He used to be called "Lazy Larry" and was laziest person in Elmore, but the title was stolen by Richard Watterson circa the summer of 1983.

Appearance

Larry wears a green shirt, an orange tie, and an orange, white and red hat. He is made completely out of rock. He is incredibly skinny, similar to Rob and Miss Simian. His head is disproportionately large and blocky. While being Lazy Larry, he transforms into a huge block, which connects his head to his torso. In Season 2, his entire body no longer has any textures.

Personality

Larry is a very hard working and serious person, and can not be fooled easily. He keeps many jobs around Elmore, from being a store clerk to a cashier, and does an admirable job at each of them. Although on many of these occasions, he is accidentally fired or is driven to do so by a member of the Watterson family.

He has a girlfriend named Karen, who he has attempted to propose to twice. However, he failed each time. The first time was in "The Laziest," where Gumball and Darwin aggravated him to the point where he attacks them with his food, shouting "GET OUT OF MY LIFE!," but he hit Karen instead. She promptly breaks up with him, thinking that he hated her. The second time is in "The Goons." During the Dumb Race, Richard accidentally picks him up and Larry proposes to him instead of Karen.

Jobs

Similar to Rocky, Larry works numerous jobs.

Laser Video

Larry's first job was at Laser Video. He is the cashier of the store, though he probably got fired after he failed to get repayment of the late fee from the DVD that Gumball and Darwin broke. It is very similar to Ripley 2000 from "The Refund".

The Gas Station

In "The Spoon", Larry was then seen as a cashier at The Gas Station. He probably got fired from there too after he failed to keep the money of the store safe from the robbery.

The Supermarket

Larry worked here as a cashier after getting fired from his previous jobs. He most likely got fired because of yelling at a customer as an attempt to get Gumball and Darwin away from him. This has so far been his longest job he held.

Joyful Burger

It is Larry's fourth job and works as a cashier there, and has not yet been fired from there. Probably for a late night shift since Carrie came at night.

Shoe Store

It is his fifth job and he works as a cashier as usual. He was seen doing his job there in "The Prank", where Richard wanted to return the shoes he bought originally for Gumball and Darwin (for his prank), but denied the return because there were baked beans contained inside the shoes.

Ripley 2000

For his sixth job, he works as a clerk, as he does in his other jobs, in the local videogame store. He was first featured working here in "The Refund", when he denies Gumball and Darwin a refund for their computer game. He may have been fired from there as he failed to keep Gumball from getting a refund and abandoned his post. However, in the video "What Dad Would Do for a Sausage Part 1" he is seen working there.

Fervidus Pizza

In "The Job", Larry works for Fervidus Pizza Delivery. Larry is Richard's employer, and he fires Richard for eating parts of the pizzas he had to deliver.

Elmore Shopping

He is seen working at Elmore Shopping in "Christmas" as the mall Santa, in a small cabin called "Santa's Grotto". His girlfriend Karen is also seen directly outside of it, dressed as an elf.

Quotes

  • "It all goes back to the summer Of '83..."
  • "Ah... The Wattersons. It's about time you showed up. I assume you have my money."
  • "I hope you don't mind if I make sure it's real, because last time I checked it was a piece of cardboard."
  • Larry: "This had better be a joke."
    Gumball: "Aw man, what gave it away?"
    Larry: "Dude, it's five seconds long and every name in the credits is one of you two."
  • "That will be seven hundred dollars."
  • "Hey! Hey! HEY!!"
  • "Ha! I knew you were trying to skip my messages."
  • "Well, there is no way I can accept this, you need to give the real DVD now."
  • "Welcome to the Gas Station, where we never sleep...(suddenly afraid) because we're not allowed to..."
  • "What do you want from me, you nut burger?!"
  • "GET OUT OF MY LIFE!"
  • "Richard Watterson, that guy is lazier than a rock."

Trivia

  • He was originally supposed to be a rock, but was changed to be an origami type of character for reasons unknown. This may have been referenced in "The Job", when one of the universe-altering shockwaves from Richard, which turned the characters into real-life version of themselves, turned Larry into a large rock.
  • In "The Finale", it is revealed why he has so many jobs; only to repay damages the Wattersons have done.
  • It is shown that Larry might actually be a good actor when he delivered a pizza to himself in "The Game".
