How can we forget about these incredible minor characters. They are just as integral to Bikini Bottom as Spongebob. I'm sure of it! Anyway, here are the 10 most underrated Spongebob characters.
Do you remember these guys?
10. Karen, Plankton's Computer Wife
Karen says all the things we want to say to Plankton. I can't imagine a world where the "Plankton you are made up of 1% evil and 99% hot gas" quote doesn't exist.
9. Flatts The Flounder
His immortal words "I'm gonna kick your butt" changed Spongebob's boating school life forever. Seriously, where would we be without Flatts?
8. Larry The Lobster
Everyone's favorite muscle head, Larry The Lobster encouraged Spongebob to be lifeguard, and that episode is a total laugh riot. Come on, Patrick and the ice cream? Please tell me you know what I'm talking about.
7. Pearl Krabs
Pearl gave us the episode that we all remember as the funniest, strangest thing we'd seen in our teens. Come on now, Spongebob at the prom? Pearl's birthday party with Boys Who Cry (the undersea's premiere boy band, excuse me "young fish" band)? These are some of the best moments in the show, and it's probably because of Pearl.
6. Plankton's Cousins
The closest Plankton ever got to actually obtaining the Krabby Patty Formula was when his cousins got involved. Back woods plankton from the far off sea, Plankton's cousins show up to stage an uprising in the Krusty Krab. It's a wonder they didn't succeed...not really though, because most of them were pretty dumb.
5. Perch Perkins
WHERE WOULD WE GET ALL OF OUR BIKINI BOTTOM NEWS WITHOUT PERCH PERKINS!?
4. BUBBLE BASS
STIILL NO PICCCKLLLEESSSSSS. This episode could have derailed Spongebob's fry cooking career forever. A major change in direction from anything we'd seen, Bubble Bass was the dude we all loved to hate. He hid a bunch of stuff in his mouth which is like...Impressive.
3. Old Man Jenkins
Although there are several versions of Old Man Jenkins, his spirit is universal. "I don't wanna be a burden."
ME HOY MINOY
Doodlebob will forever haunt our nightmares. Getting real meta with us, Spongebob introduced a drawn creation that came to life...and damn...it got us questioning things.
1. Fred (My Leg Guy)
I dedicated an entire post to him. He is the singular most important figure in the Spongebob universe, and I challenge anyone to refute this statement. For I shall scream his name from the rooftops, Fight Club style: HIS NAME IS FRED FISH.
Go ahead haters. TRY ME.
And just for good measure: this horrific rendering of Squidward from the DoodleBob episode.
