Gariiiiiii (also known as Gary) is a character in the 2007 Robbie the Reindeer film Close Encounters Of The Herd Kind.

Clos Encounters of the Herd KindEdit

Gary is an Earth Guardian who crash lands on Earth. He then uses his head device to warn Robbie that he is in danger and meets him later. When Robbie asks who he is, he says his real name is almost impossible to be pronounced in Earth tongue and says that the nearest approximation is Gariiiiiii, which Robbie shortens to Gary. He tells Robbie about his people the Earth Guardians and what they do.

When asked by Robbie why he is here, Gary says that last night he intercepted a Nargathron craft, intent on destroying Earth and gives him The Nargathron Crystal which he says that would be very dangerous if the Nargathrons had it. Robbie says that he is not good with responsibilities and says that Gary is better off giving the crystal to the other Earth Guardians. However Gary says that they are 1,000 lightyears away and do not know that he crashed. He sldo tells Robbie that if the Nargathrons find the crystal, it would be the end of Robbie and those he loves, before dying of his injuries.

He appears later as a spirit to help Robbie.
