The Purple Doctorfish is a character who first appears in the episode "I Was a Teenage Gary." He is usually the doctor seen when there are medical situations in episodes.


He is a purple fish who wears a white buttoned coat, green pants, round glasses, and a head mirror with a black strap. He usually appears with a clipboard. In "I Was a Teenage Gary," he has thin red arms with hands instead of fins.


The Doctorfish is a medical doctor who works at the Bikini Bottom hospital. In addition to being a doctor, he is also a veterinarian, as revealed in "I Was a Teenage Gary," "Shellback Shenanigans," and "Pineapple Invasion." He first appeared in "I Was a Teenage Gary." He is also the dentist in Bikini Bottom, as seen in "Mid-Life Crustacean."


His name has yet to be revealed, although it is uncertain if he is the same fish as the orange Dr. Gill Gilliam. The character Perch Perkins also appears both purple and orange and he was also revealed to be the same fish.


He first appears in "I Was a Teenage Gary," where he tells SpongeBob that in order to cure Gary, he must inject him with Snail Plasma because he was "too squeamish."

He later appears in "Suds," where he assigns treatment to SpongeBob while he has the "suds."

In "Squid's Day Off," he helps reattach Mr. Krabs' arms after they fell off.

He makes a brief appearance in "Band Geeks," thinking that there was a dying animal on Squidward's premises.

In "The Bully," he tells Flats the Flounder that he was in the hospital and that SpongeBob had performed CPR on him for five hours straight.

In "No Weenies Allowed," he recommends that SpongeBob go to the Weenie Hut General Hospital, rather than the hospital he was in.

He does not like to be touched by those who have food poisoning, such that Mr. Krabs had in "Born Again Krabs."

He performs 20 hour-surgery on SpongeBob's butt by repairing it with staples and glue in "I Had an Accident."

He makes a brief cameo in "SquidBob TentaclePants," where he tells a woman that she had given birth to a healthy baby, only to have the fused SpongeBob and Squidward to teleport in the baby's place as he shows it to the woman.

In "The Two Faces of Squidward," he performs Squidward's operation. SpongeBob's interruptions make him feel paranoid during the final stages of the operation.
