This is the page about a specific construction worker. For other uses, see Construction worker (disambiguation).

The worker fish [1] is a character who appears in the episodes "As Seen on TV," "Skill Crane," "Le Big Switch," "Stanley S. SquarePants," and "Boss for a Day."


He is an obese light orange fish with mustard yellow fins and lips and small eyes that have very pale yellow sclera and black pupils. He wears a faded blue sweater, indigo pants and black shoes.

In "Le Big Switch," he wore dark overalls instead of his usual pants.

In "Boss for a Day," he looks slightly different due to the new art style from seasons 10-present having more exaggerated expressions.

Role in series

"As Seen on TV"

He makes a far-distance cameo holding three sticks at the beginning of the episode when the Bikini Bottomites are recording a TV advertisment for the Krusty Krab.

"Skill Crane"

He is one of the construction workers surrounding Squidward at the end of the episode.

"Stanley S. SquarePants"

When SpongeBob introduces his cousin Stanley to Squidward, he rapidly takes everything from his house into the Bikini Bottom Movers truck. Then Squidward hops in the cabin, revealing the driver is the worker fish. Then the two leave.

"Le Big Switch"

He and the short construction worker take all of the fake fancy decorations out of the Krusty Krab, as well as every furniture.

"Boss for a Day"

He is seen trying to lift a piano with a rope, but when he notices the penny that Mr. Krabs was going after. He lets go of the rope and starts going after the penny, causing the piano to fall right onto Mr. Krabs, severely injuring him.



  • Between "Stanley S. SquarePants" and "Boss for a Day", it took 12 years for his return to the series.
