He is a purple fish with a Mohawk and a gray beard. He wears green sunglasses and a blue jacket with two badges, a name tag, two pockets on his chest, one pocket on his sleeve, rolled up sleeves, a folded collar, and a white T-shirt underneath his blue jacket.
When he teaches, he is strict. When he is not teaching, he is nice.
In the 20th Century, he worked at a place called, "Milk Shake." After an accident with a blender, he was unable to continue to make milkshakes.
Later, he works at a a place called, "Milkshake Academy" to train sea creatures to make milkshakes correctly.
Captain Frostymug first appears after he jumps from an airplane and lands in front of 6 cadets (One of them, of course, is SpongeBob). He then address everyone that he is there to train them into qualified milkshakers. He singles SpongeBob out thinking he won't know much since he called a ice cream scooper a "ice cream spatula."
Captain Frostymug fails to see SpongeBob's abilities in the blending room after SpongeBob does not even know which controls to use. After a cadet tells SpongeBob what to do, SpongeBob then makes a milkshake. Frostymug attempts to taste it but it ends up smashing him in the eye. He then wants Spongebob to experience what a milkshake feels like by putting him into the Shake Similuator. He takes a step further by setting it to "OBLITERATE" and starts shaking SpongeBob around. However, SpongeBob enjoys the ride and wants another go much to Frostymug's dismay. He is now angry saying he has never had such an "unteachable moron" and asks the other cadets on tips on how to teach SpongeBob. One of the cadets actually say that Frostymug is better off "teaching a hunk of coral." Frostymug then takes SpongeBob through a series of tests including cherry shooting, blending milkshakes again, and even dropping ice cream from airplanes all to no success.
He then hosts the Milkshake License Ceremony and gives all the cadets their milkshake licenses except to SpongeBob. SpongeBob wants to know why and Frostymug replies by telling SpongeBob that he couldn't even get past step one of making a milkshake: Filling the glass with ice cream. Frostymug then attempts to show SpongeBob how to properly make a milkshake but starts to get tense as he has a flashback of his younger self serving milkshakes at a place actually called "Milk Shake." When blending the ice cream, some of it spilled on an electrical wire causing ice cream to splash in all of the customers' faces which they all scream and run around. Back to older Frostymug, he then gets his hand caught in the blender and his whole body starts to get sucked in. Fortunaly for him, SpongeBob saves Frostymug just in time. Frostymug then tells SpongeBob that the true secret to make milkshakes doesn't come from machines but from within, to which, SpongeBob says he doesn't get it at all.
Frostymug appears for the final time at the Krusty Krab on a wheelchair and gives SpongeBob his milkshake license. SpongeBob replies saying that if only getting his boating license would be this easy.
Milkshake Maker for Milk Shake - Formerly, in the mid-20th Century
Milkshake Making Instructor - When SpongeBob visited he had been doing the job for 30 years.
Though his name is Captain Frostymug, his name tag actually says "Captain Frosty" on it.
According to the storyboard, he was originally going have a red beard instead of a gray one.
In Croatian dub, his name is "Kapetan Crnobradi", which translates to "Captain Blackbeard."
