Dirty Dan is a criminal in Sandy's dream in the episode "Survival of the Idiots."


It is suggested that the reason Dirty Dan and Pinhead Larry are criminals is tax evasion.[1]


Sandy references him as a criminal before SpongeBob and Patrick create a game where they would fight over the titles of Pinhead Larry and Dirty Dan. SpongeBob pretends to be him at first, but at the end of the fight, Patrick is titled as Dirty Dan.


  • Dirty Dan, along with Pinhead Larry, has become a popular internet meme.
