Role in series

"The Incredible Shrinking Sponge"

He finds the mini SpongeBob, and thinking he's an action figure, takes it to his friends. Meanwhile, the others try to take it from him. Ryan runs away until all the kids fall into Squidward's workstation. SpongeBob then jumps into Squidward's shirt pocket. Mr. Krabs tells the kids to get their parents' money to buy the "action figure." They look at the customers and run after them.

"No Pictures Please"

When Patrick was giving an enthusiastic tourist a "tour" around Bikini Bottom, Ryan was seen eating an ice cream cone. Patrick's bellybutton ate Ryan's ice cream, but Ryan punched Patrick and made him cough up the ice cream.

"Krabby Patty Creature Feature"

Once everyone has turned into zombies from eating the Secret Patty, Ryan and his family hide on the top of the Krusty Krab sign for protection.

He then proceeds to fall off and starts to eat a part of the zombie in which he lands on, saying that it doesn't taste bad, and mutates into a zombie himself.

"Pat the Horse"

He appears on the cover of the book You Can Be Anything and as one of the kids during Mr. Krabs' "pony ride."

"Moving Bubble Bass"

When SpongeBob and Patrick start moving Bubble Bass' furniture to his grandmother's house, Ryan is seen skipping with a skipping rope held by two other kids. He moves out of SpongeBob and Patrick's way as they pass by. Later, when the bag of furniture starts bouncing down a large hill, it hits Ryan, and he is later flung off the bag when it suddenly stops.
