Escargoon is a purple snail who works for King Dedede.
Escargoon was actually an original character created for the anime, and didn't appeared in the games until just recently with Kirby's Mass Attack. Dedede doesn't seem to think too highly of him, hence his constant abuse and his always being ignored. He's a lot smarter than Dedede and makes inventions, but Kirby usually foils them. He's actually pretty nice when he isn't working for Dedede. Probably.
Dedede has attempted to eat Escargoon on one occasion. Why is unknown, but it's happened. Escargoon had just come out of the bath, using his "delicious barbecue sauce" shampoo, and found himself inside of Dedede. It is suspected that Dedede was drunk, however. Escargoon has admitted that he does taste pretty damn good. Since Kirby is always hungry, Escargoon'd better watch his back. And since the French eat snails, he'd better watch his back... still.
