Davy Jones (December 30, 1945 - February 29, 2012; aged 66) was a human character who is often mentioned as an oath by characters such as Mr. Krabs and is also the namesake of "Davy Jones' locker." In real life, he was the lead singer of the rock band The Monkees, and appeared as himself on one occasion. He died of a heart attack resulting from Arteriosclerosis on February 29, 2012 at the age of 66.

Role in series

His burial site, appropriately titled "Davy Jones' locker," is a place where all bad sea creatures stay in the afterlife, which makes it the underwater equivalent to Hell and the opposite of Atlantis, the underwater equivalent of Heaven.

In "SpongeBob SquarePants vs. The Big One," Davy makes a live-action appearance with the Flying Dutchman, as he sings a few words of "Daydream Believer," as he was the lead vocalist of The Monkees, the rock group whom originally performed the song. His locker is apparently like any school locker, filled with Davy's gym socks, which have a horrid smell.

In "Born Again Krabs," Mr. Krabs is banished to the locker, but Davy is not there.

"SpongeBob SquarePants vs. The Big One" is his only ever live-action appearance in the series.

In both the episodes "The Curse of Bikini Bottom" and "Krusty Kleaners," he appears as a dead skeleton.


  • Davy Jones' locker is an idiom used in real life for the bottom of the sea.
