The (hidden) Snail is a character that appears in nearly all Adventure Time episodes, except in "Trouble in Lumpy Space," and in "Blood Under the Skin." But later, "Blood Under the Skin" and "Trouble in Lumpy Space" were remade, so he is seen. He is the "hidden easter egg," which means that if you find him, then congratulate yourself! The snail is always in a good hiding place, making it hard to find him. He is always waving at the screen.
In "Mortal Folly," he gets possessed by The Lich and frees him from the amber prison. He has not returned to his normal form ever since that moment in time. He made a small appearance in the comic, where The Lich leaves his body and he turns back to normal. The Lich had left the snails body sometime around the episode "The Lich."
