A walkie-talkie is a two-way radio transceiver used for communicating from far distances. It first appears in the episode "Boating School."


It is a blue transceiver that has an antenna and a red button on the side. It has a speaker and a light blue clam on it. In several episodes, the clam is lavender. In "Safe Deposit Krabs," the walkie-talkie is gray rather than blue.
