Dale[1] is a faded brown fish who appears in several episodes as an extra in the Krusty Krab and various other locations. His ex-girlfriend is Abigail Marge and they are seen together in numerous episodes such as Krusty Dogs and Trident Trouble.


He is a faded brown colored fish with a light-brown mouth and black eyes. He wears a red tank-top.


In "Le Big Switch," Squidward takes his Krabby Patty and insults Dale, which makes him cry.

In "Ditchin'," he gets arrested for eating Quasi-Gummy Chewy Candy Fish because it is of his own kind. It is then revealed that he used to be a good student in boating school until he started cutting class which caused him to become a criminal. This scares SpongeBob since he is doing the exact same thing.


  • In "Ditchin'," Dale was arrested for "eating his own kind," but in the episode "The Fry Cook Games," oil was splashed on a number of people from the audience and Lou was selling them as fish sticks.
  • Dale was arrested, but in future episodes, he can be seen out of jail. He might have gotten out on parole again, or someone could have possibly paid his bail or could have broke out, concluding that Dale could be a fugitive.
  • In the episode "Porous Pockets," it is revealed he is allergic to ice cream, so he could possibly be lactose intolerant.
  • Dale was a prisoner in Inferno Island in the episode "The Inmates of Summer." This could be something to do with "Ditchin'."
