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 night shift, despite mispronouncing his name.
At the end of the night shift, he leaves with everybody else who worked at the night shift, except SpongeBob. However, everyone SpongeBob met during the night shift, including The Fisherman, were soon revealed to be an illusion created by The Tidal Zone.
He somehow manages to hook on to the ice cream part of the ice cream cone, instead of the cone itself.
