Blurb

Larry Boyd is having a bad day. He's been chased by dogs, his band sounds pathetic, and his allergies seem to be getting worse. It's not just a bad day, it's a bad hair day . . . suddenly he is growing thick, long hair on his arms and legs. Even more troubling, his friends seem to be disappearing. Could that old bottle of Instant -Tan they used could that have something to do with these strange occurrences? Can Hairy Larry get to the bottom of this before he ends up like the rest of his friends . . . hair one day, gone tomorrow?

Differences from the book

  • Unlike the book, Larry doesn't care much about his hair.
  • In the book, Larry collects the bottle of INSTA-TAN to give to Dr. Murkin to study and find a cure, only for dogs to chase him, and cause him to accidentally drop and break the bottle. In the TV version, the bottle is accidentally thrown in the trash and Larry freaks out when he finds out about it.
  • Larry grows blonde hair instead of black hair.
  • Larry notices hair growing on both of his palms while having dinner with Lily's family, not in class.
  • In the book, Larry's fur disappears every time he shaves himself, but regrows if it's left alone long enough. In the episode, the fur disappears every time Larry rests, but reappears if he expends energy.
  • The episode takes place in the span of 3 days, while the book's story takes place for at least a week.
  • Kristina is absent from the television adaptation, reducing the band members from 5 to 4.
  • The episode takes place in spring instead of winter.
  • The Battle of the Bands plot is replaced with Larry and his friends practicing for a gig at a children's birthday party.
  • The tanning lotion reads "INSTA-TAN, RUB ON A DARK SUNTAN IN MINUTES" instead of "INSTANT TAN, GIVES YOU AN INSTANT TAN".
