Waving Snail
Species Snail
Introduced in "Slumber Party Panic"

The Snail is a character that hides in all episodes, usually seen waving at the screen. His cameos are a running gag. In the episode "Mortal Folly," the Lich possesses him to break the Lich free. However, in "Mortal Recoil," Princess Bubblegum (possessed), passes the Lich into him.

The Lich

Snail S2E24-tr

The Snail, spellbound by the Lich

While the Snail was just a running gag at first, he eventually became an integral part of the story when he released the Lich in the episode "Mortal Folly." The Snail comes out of Finn's bag to wave to the viewers, but then falls under the Lich's mind-control spell and breaks the amber prison by bashing it with his head. He appears at the end of "Mortal Recoil," still being controlled by the Lich.

At the end of "In Your Footsteps," the Snail speaks for the first time and gains The Enchiridion. The Snail still continues to appear in each episode, and (when examined closely) appears to still have green eyes and an evil expression on its face. The possessed snail was voiced by Pendleton Ward.[1]

Season 1

The tables below list the Snail's known whereabouts.

Episode Description Picture

Trouble in Lumpy Space According to Pen's Formspring, they dropped the ball on this episode, and the original airing of the episode went without them putting the Snail. They claimed they would add the Snail in for reruns.[2] The snail is now seen behind lumpy Jake on a streamer at prom-coming just after Finn falls through the building. TroubleInLumpySpace
