Sandals is an olive-green background fish who first appears in the episode "Patty Hype."
He is an olive-green-colored fish with dark yellow-orange lips, light olive-green fins, and has dark olive-green spots on the side of his head. He wears purple shorts with white flowers and light blue sandals, which gave his name. However, in the first movie, he is seen wearing brown shoes and socks. He sometimes bears a striking resemblance to Scooter. In SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D: Ride, he appears in a greener color and wears red shorts.
He usually is a surfer at Goo Lagoon and does not act very intelligent.
He is best known for comedic one-liners. However, unlike several other common background characters, he has never played a major role in an episode.
In the episode "The Smoking Peanut," he has an Australian accent.
The shorts that Sandals wears are similar to Patrick's shorts since they both have Hawaiian flowers on them. The only difference is size and color. They are the same shorts like the ones that Medley Fishbowl wears.
