Al Priss is the chief of the Bikini Bottom Police Department and Miss Gristlepuss' husband. He appears in the episode "Banned in Bikini Bottom."


He is a muscular, lavender fish with blond hair and a small mustache. He wears black sunglasses and is always seen in his uniform, which is blue with a matching hat. His police suit consists of a black belt, black boots, and a baton.


Al always seems to be in good spirits. He is loyal to his wife as he closed down the Krusty Krab both for her request and Mr. Krabs threatening her.

Although cheerful to his wife, he can be shown to be ignorant, as he does not recognize his wife's hatred to Krabby Patties. In segments of the episode, he is shown to be hungry occasionally.

Role in episode

He is commanded by his wife to close down the Krusty Krab, as she opposes "fun and delicious" foods. Mr. Krabs persistently opens a secret Krusty Krab, but he is not entirely secure from the law. Miss Gristlepuss uncovers it with Plankton's help and brings the SWAT Team to purge it off the Krabby Patties and arrest Mr. Krabs.

However, due to the chief's liking of Krabby Patties, Miss Gristlepuss is angered, but when she trips over a Krabby Patty and it drops into her mouth, she has a change in heart.
