The Lazy Quadling is a man who lives near the Trick River in the Quadling Country of Oz with his wife and two children.
He is a chubby little man who dresses in red, the local color. His wife, a truthful woman, says he's the laziest man in all Oz.
His closest neighbor lives across the river from him, but he has never spoken to him because neither has ever crossed the river.
When Dorothy Gale, Ojo, the Scarecrow, and the Patchwork Girl asked for his help crossing the river, they had to bribe him with Square Meal Tablets to get his help. (The Patchwork Girl of Oz)
