When the grumpy, bossy and ugly leader of the Bottersnikes, isn’t eating, sleeping or farting, he’s busy shouting orders at the other Snikes, making them catch Gumbles, fetch him food or protect him from the rain. And if they don’t follow his orders, the King sits on their heads. The King thinks he’s pretty great so he tries to hide the fact that he’s actually not very clever. He is always outsmarted by the Gumbles.
The Bottersnikes are the bad guys… not that they see it like that!
They’re mean spirited, selfish, lazy, stinky creatures that think they own the junkyard. They’re much bigger than Gumbles, and have hard scaly skin, sharp teeth, claws and ears that glow red hot when they get angry, which is most of the time. They spend all day arguing with one another, sleeping and farting. Oh, and eating! Bottersnikes eat junk, rusty nails, bottle tops…Anything they can get their hands on. But their favourite food is mouldy mattress stuffing. Gross!
