Earl is a tall and very muscular black man who is incredibly athletic and well built, although he has rather short legs when he is compared to the rest of his body. He has brown skin as well as brown eyes and brown hair, along with a brown mustache and beard. He wears a blue officer's uniform with short sleeves and short pants, along with white sneakers and socks. His officer's cap has a gold badge on it.
During his time working in a bakery, he donned on a "pretty" pink dress and cupcake hat (which appeared to be the bakery's uniform). He was forced to shave off his rugged beard and mustache. However, he quickly grew it back once he quit his job and donned on his old uniform once again despite not being an officer anymore.
Earl plays as a minor antagonist at the beginning of the film but soon becomes one the main characters. He is a very athletic, and overprotective man who takes his job as an officer of the law very seriously and with pride and always enjoys performing over the top athletic and action poses whenever possible, to a point of seeming comical, and he is very proud of his masculinity and enjoys being as manly as possible and dislikes the thought of actually showing tears (having once even sucked a tear back into his eye with sheer force of will). He can be overreactive and over-the-top sometimes with a gruff kind of voice and temper. He is also a very caring and loving family man who loves his wife and son very much and is willing to do anything for them and never ceases to remind his son just how much he cares about him. He also cares a lot about the safety of the people of Swallow Falls and even helped organize and evacuation during the "Food Hurricane" the FLDSMDFR has created.

- Earl was originally intended to be a gym coach who was also a volunteer policeman, therefore the reason why he's an athletic.
- His DNA is somewhat absorbant as when his tear fell on a blueberry. It gave him muscles and chest hair.
