Scooter(Incidental 38) is a surfer fish. Along with Larry the Lobster, he is a common attendee of Goo Lagoon. He is easily identified by his high-pitched, shaky voice and commonly speaking surfer lingo.
He first appears in the episode "Ripped Pants" and is most commonly voiced by Carlos Alazraqui. He was a prominent recurring character in the first three seasons, but from the fourth season onward, Alazraqui has been mostly absent from the show. Scooter's roles and voice have been mostly inconsistent since then.
He gets hit on the head repeatedly by Incidental 24 while at Goo Lagoon. Later, he is seen when SpongeBob gives out free ice cream and is seen going surfing when SpongeBob wraps do not cross tape around. After SpongeBob tells everyone that Goo Lagoon is closed, Scooter tells SpongeBob that he and other beach goers like Larry the Lobster.
Scooter walks with Incidental 37B when he spots Mystery outside of the Krusty Krab. Thinking that she is a newly-installed kiddie ride, he tries to find the coin slot only to be sent flying by Mystery kicking him.
He is a devoted fan of SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy's rock band "Tidal Wave." He wears a wave-themed shirt and visits the band backstage at the Poseidome Colosseum. There, he asks them where their drums and guitars are, and they tell Scooter that they will use seashells instead.
On the sheet of incidental characters, Scooter is one of the few characters with a label other than his model number. He is labeled as "The Dude."
