Role in the episode

Grady appears in the episode "The Puppets" where Gumball and Darwin were cleaning out through their old toys until Gumball found the box with Grady, Frank and Howdy in it. Darwin wanted to play with them but Gumball refuses saying that they have to grow up. But Darwin secretly takes the puppets and starts playing with Frank and Howdy but leaves out Grady because Darwin only has two hands.

Darwin then starts having fun with the puppets but Gumball catches him and throws them away. Later that night Frank and Howdy escape the garbage can and head for the house while dragging Grady. After Frank and Howdy took control of Darwin, Gumball had no choice but to put Grady on his hand. Grady thanks Gumball, and transports him to a bizarre live-action puppet world.

Grady tricks Gumball into following him to see Darwin with Frank and Howdy, and claims that this was actually a trap for Gumball. Grady managed to use Gumball and Darwin as his puppets. He tortures them by wearing worms, and eating toenails and grease. Darwin finds a string on Grady's arm and defeats Grady by ripping his arm off, freeing himself and Gumball. He is last seen attacking Billy at the climax of the episode, and Gumball and Darwin never played with them again.


We'll see if you break when you bend!

Wait what's that?

  • Grady along with Frank and Howdy were created by the same people who make the puppets for the internet creepypasta series "Don't Hug Me I’m Scared.”
