Chip is a potato chip that made its only appearance in the episode "I Had an Accident."
Chip, as the name describes, is a yellow potato chip. Its shape resembles that of a Pringle.
After SpongeBob decides to live indoors forever, SpongeBob chooses Chip as one of his new friends. SpongeBob throws Chip to the door to escort Sandy and Patrick out, somehow opening the door. Patrick thanks Chip before leaving. When SpongeBob goes outside to save Sandy and Patrick from the Gorilla, Gary eats Chip, thus ending its "life".
Chip encouraged SpongeBob to save Patrick and Sandy, and later Gary kills Chip by eating him.
