Role in episode

A Cabin in the Kelp 137

Flibberty's pendant

She was an old friend of theirs and part of the Gal Pals until they had a fight in the Kelp Forest. After the fight, Flibberty stayed in the forest for years, never returning to Bikini Bottom.

In the episode, Karen, Sandy, and Mrs. Puff try to scare Pearl by telling her the story of Flibberty. They even give Pearl a pendant that used to belong to Flibberty. An old, witch-like saleslady appears in the woods, and the Gal Pals think that she is Flibberty after years of life in the woods. They later find out that it is just a cabin-to-cabin salesperson.

At the end of the episode, Flibberty returns for real, and all of the Gal Pals are terrified of her. She says that she forgives them, but they run off into the woods before they can hear her.

As a running gag, Pearl mispronounces Flibberty's name every time she says it.

  • Her name is a play on "flipper" and "liberty."
  • The credits spell her name as Flibberty Gibbet, but her pendant reads Flipperty Gibbett.
  • She is named after the term "flibbertigibbet," which means a person who is flighty or whimsical in nature, or one who is gossipy and overly talkative.
