Added DiffLines:

* TheChewToy: Is often bullied by both Lawson and Gelman. Let's not forget the time where he swallowed the bee and couldn't sing for a week.


Added DiffLines:

* DependingOnTheWriter: While he usually is a bully, the actual degree of his level of bullying changes depending on the episode. Sometimes he is merely the gang's sports rival, other times he torments them in non-violent ways such as taking their fort, spraying TJ with cheese on picture day, or not letting them play tetherball. Sometimes he is even shown to get violent with other kids such as TJ, Randall, or Brandon.
