As opposed to the rude, loud, and somewhat idiotic nature of other crocodiles, Billy is thoughtful, intelligent, and kind. In fact, he appears to be one of the smartest and articulate crocodiles in the entire strip. His idols are icons of peace such as Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.
Much to the chagrin of his mother and father, Billy has decided to become a vegetarian for ethical reasons, dates a zebra named Joy, and might have affiliations with PETA.
Relationships with other Characters
Billy is Larry's son. Despite Billy's going to school, dating a zebra named Joy, and being a vegetarian, Larry loves Billy, despite his many "faults". Billy also loves his father, and panicked when the Killer Dolphins supposedly ate Larry, though Patty was celebrating, and the members of Zeeba Zeeba Eata were stealing their possessions.
Billy has a crush on Zebra's niece, Joy, despite the fact that Larry and Patty disapproved. When Patty found out about this, she told Larry: "If you would have eaten him like a normal crocodile, none of this would have happened!" To this Larry responded: "But me love him." At this, Patty beat Larry up. This might imply that Larry had eaten Billy's siblings, as crocodiles usually have more than one child at a time, or that Patty was referring to him not eating Zebra and Larry stupidly misunderstood it to mean eating Billy. Billy and Joy tried to bring the families together at a Christmas party, but every one let Larry alone with an uncle, then came in with a covered platter. It turned out that it was KFC chicken inside, because he knocked out the zebra with a "Key of Friendship" that he had earlier obtained, but he was to fat to throw onto the barbeque, so he ended up eating one of his legs raw.
Billy is Patty's son, but she wishes that Larry had eaten Billy when he was young. She is shown to love her son, although she abandons him and Larry occasionly when Larry does something embarassing, such as being on Jeporady.
Zebra is a good friend of Billy.
