A Lethargian from the film.

Lethargarians are a race of irresponsible, lazy and slimy little creatures that have the ability to divide and multiply themselves. They live deep in the Doldrums, a terrible swamp of laziness and dread. They sit around sleeping every full day and to visitors, they pretend to have a law which includes no thinking or laughing allowed and smiling only permitted on alternate Thursdays.
