Well, you do look enthusiastic.
— Mister Weiner, "SpongeBob You're Fired"

Mister Weiner[sic][1] is the owner and manager of the restaurant Weenie Hut who appears in the episode "SpongeBob You're Fired," and the online game of the same name, and the books You're Fired! and Fry Cook Freak-Out!


Mister Weiner is a tall light green fish with dark spring green fins and legs. He wears a hot dog suit, a blue and white-striped shirt over the weenie suit with a light yellow undershirt, a blue bow tie, and a cardboard hat.


Mister Weiner is shown to be an expressionless, shallow person who speaks in a deadpan tone of voice and exhibits little dedication to his job. He is shown to have a weakness to SpongeBob's annoyance, and like Squidward, seems to fall victim to slapstick and abuse, as seen when SpongeBob accidentally slams the door on him and when he got hit by a bus.

Despite his disapproval for SpongeBob's Krabby Patty-like sliders, he is shown to have a fondness for the Krusty Krab at the end.

Criminal record

  • False imprisonment: He handcuffs SpongeBob to the grill without having the authority to do so.
  • Kidnapping: He abducts SpongeBob and takes him to his restaurant against his will.

Role in episode

Mister Weiner is first seen at Weenie Hut, where he decides to hire SpongeBob. However, he is disgusted at SpongeBob's Weenie Patties and fires him on the spot.

Later in the episode, Mister Weiner has his thugs kidnap SpongeBob from his home and forces him to cook more Weenie Patties due to his customers' fondness for them. However, SpongeBob's past employers try to take him back as well, due to the popularity of his food, but Mister Weiner and the other employers are defeated by the Killer Krabby Patty. He is subsequently hit by a bus.

At the end of the episode, he is shown eating at the Krusty Krab.


  • Mister Weiner is the first person to employ SpongeBob and the first to kidnap him in the episode.
