Squidward: a cranky squid who can be energetic at times. He is mostly lazy though.

Marly: A waitress who hangs out with Jim and Squidward. She is revealed to be a criminal and is currently serving time in jail.

Marina: One of Marly's friends who comes to work at The Krusty Krab in Marly's absence. She is constantly bickering with Mr Krabs due to his ignorance.

Tom and Tim: Two twins from Jim's Hotel (Jim's Hotel, Season 2, Episode 8) that now work at the Krusty Krab.

Marmaduke: A regular at the Krusty Krab who eventually becomes part of the staff, although he does nothing.

Mrs. Flounders: An elderly regular who is killed when trying to save Marmaduke in the Season 2 episode "I Can't Hear."

Jay: A fish who was romantically involved with Marly. He disappears in Season 3, being last seen in the Season 3 episode "Answered" saying goodbye to Marly. He has not since been seen on the show.

DVD Releases Edit

Season 1 was released on DVD on March 7, 2010. It features all the extra and some behind the scenes. Season 2 was released on DVD on April 10, 2010 with the same types of features. Because Season 2 was such a large season, the DVD featured four discs, while the first season only had two discs. Season 3 DVD was released on November 28, 2010.


Trivia/NotesEdit

This is tvguy's longest running spin off. Since 2009, it has been cancelled, brought back, cancelled, brought back, cancelled and so on MANY times. However, it is currently airing and has not been cancelled/brought back since late Season 2.

A running gag on the show is the inclusion of episodes that have a "____ Krabs" title.
