Pappy Krabs,[1][2][3][4][5] officially fan-named William Krabs,[6] was the owner of the Krusty Kantina and Eugene H. Krabs' Western ancestor. He first appears in the episode "Pest of the West." He also appears in the game Pest of the West Showdown! and the book adaptation of the episode.


William Krabs looks exactly like Eugene but wears Western-style overalls with yellow buttons, a blue long sleeve shirt, a green tie, and dark blue pants without a belt.


Unlike his descendant Eugene, who has a lot of money, William Krabs was broke because Dead Eye Plankton kept taking all of his mortgage payments.

He regained his money after the new sheriff SpongeBuck SquarePants defeated the villain.


He was born to Mr. and Mrs. Krabs.

At some point, he became the owner of Krusty Kantina.

He later had a son now known as Great Great Great Grandpa Krabs.
