Plankton's cellmates are a group of prisoners who appear in the episodes "The Inmates of Summer," "Back to the Past," "Jailbreak!," and "The Krusty Slammer" They worship Plankton since his chum is helpful in pulling off crimes. They also help him break out of the Bikini Bottom Jail and steal the Krabby Patty secret formula.


There are many of Plankton's cellmates, but the main ones include the purple cellmate, who is a large purple fish who has a tattoo of Plankton. He also reveals that he used chum to disguise his face and scare off the cashier out of his money.

The light blue cellmate is a light blue fish who is quite tall. He reveals that he just uses chum as a gas bomb to scare out all of the people in the bank.

Reggie is a short green moray eel with a large mouth which can bite really strongly. He also helps create the chum by blowing his nose on a napkin.

The whale cellmate is a sperm whale with a scar on his face. He is used as a battering ram to help break into the Krusty Krab. His appearance is similar to Pearl Krabs.

Lastly, the squid cellmate is a light blue squid with a beak and a scar on his face.
