Barbara, once I stuck my beak through that door, my appetite flew South for the winter. I mean, I'm not kidding. When I saw this restaurant, it smelt like the rear-end of a goat.

Role in series

"The Krusty Sponge"

He gave a positive review on the Krusty Krab and praised SpongeBob for making such delicious patties. His review inspired Eugene H. Krabs to make SpongeBob SquarePants the theme of the restaurant only to poison his customers with expired patties which weren't refrigerated.

Later on, Gene would appear as a thirteenth juror who, like the rest of the jury found Mr. Krabs guilty of all charges. He probably went to the restaurant later and got "spongefied."
