Craig Mammalton is a character who appears in the episodes "Sun Bleached" and "The Whole Tooth."


Craig Mammalton shows much resemblance to Larry the Lobster including having a similar voice (but different voice actors). He is a seal that is extremely tan. His tan is said to be so deep that even his bones are tan. His skin is very leathery and wrinkled from tanning. Just like Larry he tends to be very popular and cares much about his appearance. He wears a green bathing suit.

Role in series

"Sun Bleached"

He throws a huge party only for those as tanned as he is. SpongeBob and Patrick try to get in; Patrick is able to get tan but SpongeBob gets sun bleached due to Patrick's stupidity. They try many techniques to get tan. Finally, SpongeBob covers himself in caramel. However, at the party it hardened and fell off.

SpongeBob is praised for it, as it is an even deeper tan than Craig's. They all try to get sun bleached as well, however, he and everyone except for were burned to ashes while doing so. Due to SpongeBob and Patrick still being able to talk, it is likely that everyone else survived.

"The Whole Tooth"

He also appears in "The Whole Tooth," but he is black and wearing a suit. He walks out of the Krusty Krab after getting offended by Patrick acting like a seal.


  • As shown in "Sun Bleached," his bones are a rich golden caramel brown.
  • Craig's name and his notorious tan skin are a reference to a film and television actor George Hamilton.
  • In "Sun Bleached," he intends to only hang out with people as tan as him.
