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. Larry is not fooled easily, and generally dislikes most anyone who bears the surname "The Watterson." Larry manages to keep up with all his jobs by "working very hard", but he has been fired on at least one occasion.


Larry's appearance is hard to describe. He wears a green shirt, an orange tie, and an orange, white and red hat. He is made completely out of rock. He is very skinny, and his head is much larger than logically possible. While being Lazy Larry, he transforms into a huge block, which connects his head to his torso.


Larry is a very hard working and serious person. 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, whom he has attempted to propose to twice.
