Dance with me, Lampy!
~ Awful Alvin with his fake sidekick Lampy.
Just you wait, LarryBoy. Soon, I will rule Bumblyburg. Me, Awful Alvin!
~ Awful Alvin

Awful Alvin is one of the main antagonists of the animated series LarryBoy: The Cartoon Adventures. He is one of LarryBoy's dangerous enemies.

Alvin considers himself the "most awful mind of all time" possibly because of his name, and tries to prove it by creating evil schemes, inventions, and minions, which included: The Angry Eyebrows, the Over-Easy-Egg-Ray, and his fake and silent sidekick named Lampy. Alvin is known for his signature "Villainous Dance of Villainy" and evil laugh, which he sometime uses randomly. Alvin was being hyperactive when he was being evil.

He was voiced by Larry Whitaker.

Biography

Origins

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.

Unleashing the Angry Eyebrows

His master plan was to unleash his armada of Angry Eyebrows to make the citizens of Bumblyburg go insane. Things go well until Larry-Boy tries to stop his dastardly deeds, and decides to try and draw his anger. He succeeds, but his victory is short-lived when Larry-Boy encourages himself and the rest of the city to let go of their anger, freeing themselves of the eyebrows' influence. Enraged, Alvin commands his armada to destroy the plunger head hero. Retaliating, Larry-Boy drives the eyebrows into a machine called the Knit Master 3000, turning them all into an enormous nightcap. Knowing he has been utterly defeated, Alvin is overwhelmed with fury, thus seeing as the nightcap attacks him. Turning on him, he is trapped under the cap, and both the scallion and the hat are shoved together in a police car.

Collaboration with Greta von Gruesome

Somehow, he escaped arrest and teamed up with Greta Von Gruesome to steal the the Over-Easy-Egg-Ray, but Larry-Boy thwarted his plans and had him arrested once again after he improved his relationship with another superhero called the Dark Crow.

Appearance

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

Personality

Now we shall do the Villianous Dance of Villainy, to signify the imminent performance of our villainous duties!
~ Awful Alvin

Unspeakably ruthless, exceedingly unhinged, horrifically sadistic, and completely devoid of compassion and remorse; Awful Alvin is evil personified. Indeed, he is far from the hero in his own story, considering himself the "most awful mind of all time" possibly because of his name, even going so far as to call his crimes "villainous duties". He tries to prove he is pure evil by creating evil schemes and inventions. He finds insidious joy in the misery of even the simplest commoner, deploying his Angry Eyebrows to drive everyone insane and kidnapping Vickie for ransom and turning her clothes into overeasy eggs, seemingly for no reason at all. Truly despicable, Alvin's schemes usually revolve around wreaking havoc, psychologically damaging innocent people, and both literally and figuratively egging Bumblyburg, but at the very top of his list is destroying his archenemy Larry-Boy, though he will not hesitate to eradicate other people who directly get in his way, such as the Dark Crow. Another mark of his insanity is his evil laugh, which he uses randomly.

Perhaps his only redeeming quality is his twisted desire for companionship, which induced him to create a fake sidekick by drawing a face with marker ink on a lamp. Not only does he regularly communicate with the lamp, which he affectionately calls "Lampy", and seem sincerely surprised when it does not answer, but he seems genuinely convinced that Lampy robustly supports his ideals and that it is imbued with its own mystical powers. Alvin enjoys performing his signature "Villainous Dance of Villainy", in order to signify the performance of his various agendas.

Trivia

  • According to various crew members, Awful Alvin was originally a Avocado. However, they changed him to a scallion because they did not feel like an avocado had enough feeling to it (plus, they cannot dance).
    • Tom Brancroft also stated he was also gonna be an artichoke.
  • In some promo shots, he had the monocle on his right eye.
  • According to the story treatment, he was gonna 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.
