List of characters

Fred[2] is a greenish-brown fish (sometimes blue or bright purple) who was the first of the generic background character models to appear in the series. He is best known for screaming "My leg!" in certain situations.


In most episodes, he appears as a greenish-brown colored fish with light tan fins and black eyes. He wears brown pants and a black belt with a gold colored belt buckle.


His first appearance is the episode, "Reef Blower." However, he is barely seen in the episode, as he was in a car as SpongeBob zoomed past him. He's most often seen dining at the Krusty Krab. He was one of the first two background characters, and Harry was the other.

His name was revealed in the episode "Patty Hype," where he was advertising the Shell Shack's talking and singing dog.

He is famous for the running gag in which he screams "My leg!" when something such as an explosion takes place which he first said it in the episode "Boating School."

He is seen screaming this phrase out loud in "Arrgh!" when Mr. Krabs throws him out of the Krusty Krab by his legs.

He is seen in "Something Smells" as a blue fish. He is also famous for his quote, "DEUUEAUGH!" This has become a popular internet meme.

One of his more notable appearances was in "Jellyfish Hunter." He sang the song Hey All You People after trying a Jelly Patty.

He is also seen in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, saying, "My eyes!"

In "A Pal for Gary," Fred is seen buying a Puffy Fluffy with his son, Monroe Timmy.

Fred appeared in "Face Freeze!" as the main character of Mr. Krabs' story of the face freeze.

In The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, Fred's "MY LEG!" is heard after Eugene H. Krabs throws aside the top bun of the stone Krabby Patty.



  • SpongeBob has been the cause of Fred yelling "My leg" more than any other character. The other characters who have done so are Patrick Star, Eugene H. Krabs, Pearl Krabs, and Sheldon J. Plankton (in a dream).
  • In "The Sponge Who Could Fly," he seems to wear the same clothes as SpongeBob, but only without red necktie.
  • In the episode "Walking Small" when Spongebob blows sand everywhere with his towel you can hear Fred say "My Leg!" but this makes no sense since sand got in everyone's eyes
  • When he said "Rev up those friers because I sure am hungry for some" it is unknown what he was going to buy. Doug Lawrence never actually said anything afterwards during the recording session.
