Leadbottom is a puttering old biplane and a grumbling taskmaster, a real “tank-half-empty” kind of guy. As the proprietor of Vitaminamulch, a special—albeit putrid—blend of vitamins, minerals, and mulch that works miracles when sprayed on crops, Leadbottom has no time for Dusty’s far-fetched flights of fancy. There are too many crops to spray and not enough hours in the day to spray them. For Leadbottom, it’s work first, then … well, more work.
Planes: The Video Game
Although he does not appear in Planes: The Video Game, he is mentioned by Dusty Crophopper when he has to spray Vitaminamulch onto the crops, as he says to get low to the ground, fly directly over the field, and release the Vitaminamulch.
Planes: Fire & Rescue
Leadbottom returns in Planes: Fire & Rescue, offering Dusty to come back to his job. He becomes in the movie rude and cruel towards Skipper, Chug and Sparky, but reforms after the airport is on fire, forgetting about any revenge.
Leadbottom is a grumpy old biplane who spends his life working rather than racing. Leadbottom is the founder of Vitaminamulch, a special blend of vitamins, minerals, and mulch that works wonders when sprayed on crops.
- Leadbottom's design is based on a PT-17 Sterman Biplane.
