List of species

Anchovies are a large group of fish that have a variety of looks, but are normally thin, their heads make up half of their bodies, with their eyes being at the very top of their heads. They mainly speak in "meeps."


Some of them appear to go to Bikini Bottom High School, where they are loved and adored by teenage girls. The most well known anchovies are Lenny and Mable-Monica. Other known anchovies include a nerdy anchovy named Billy Fishkins, a handsome anchovy named Brian Flounder, and an over-rated anchovy named Octavius Rex, whom Pearl once dated and is nicknamed "Long, Tan, and Handsome" even though the latter does not apply very well.

They usually only say "meep", and rarely use English. Some of them are in the Jelly Spotters, where they annoy Kevin often by repeating a weˈ sound in the episode "I'm Your Biggest Fanatic." They debuted in "Help Wanted," where they flooded and almost completely destroyed the Krusty Krab.

They appear in Bikini Bottom often, as citizens, but appear in the episodes "Help Wanted," "The Play's the Thing," and "Accidents Will Happen" in large, ravenous groups that will stop at nothing. They are known to attack if not pleased. They are often background characters, but in some episodes they have more major roles. Some of them like Krabby Patties. In the episode "Help Wanted," they all went to the Krusty Krab to eat Krabby Patties.

Communication System

The language of anchovies is very unique. They usually only say "meep," but in the episode "I'm Your Biggest Fanatic" they are able to say other things. They are loved around Bikini Bottom High School, but they cannot respond. It is shown that some anchovies are able to talk normally. For example, Mable is an anchovy who is able to talk in English instead of saying "meep."
