He first physically appears in this episode. He robs the Krusty Krab during the night shift, but he is caught by SpongeBob. However, everyone says he is not a criminal and that him robbing the place is a night shift tradition, and SpongeBob then apologizes to The Fisherman. He accepts his apology and introduces SpongeBob as the newest member of the shift, despite mispronouncing his name.
At the end of the night shift, he leaves with everybody else who worked at it, except SpongeBob. However, everyone SpongeBob met during the shift, including The Fisherman, were soon revealed to be an illusion created by The Tidal Zone.
He somehow manages to hook onto the ice cream part of the ice cream cone, instead of the cone itself.
