Role in series

"Walking Small"

He is seen at the Snack Bar selling hot dogs to customers at Goo Lagoon. Plankton tells SpongeBob to "assert" himself to get to the front of the line. SpongeBob then stretches his tongue to steal the hot dogs out of the octopus vendor's tentacles, causing his customers to leave the Snack Bar, disappointed.

Near the end of the episode, SpongeBob extends his tongue and returns the hot dogs he stole to the octopus vendor's customers, who then eat them. The octopus vendor then changes the "closed" sign at the Snack Bar to "open."

"SpongeBob's Place"

On the rough storyboard, he appeared with Incidental B37, Incidental 46 and another fish. On the finished episode, he was replaced by the unnamed octopus.
