The Frogfish is a gigantic, red frogfish hybrid that appeared in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie and The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie video game. In The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, it was luring SpongeBob, and Patrick, in with an ice cream stand by its lady with ice cream, much like how real frogfish uses lures on their tongue (or illicium) to lure in unsuspecting prey.

Frogfish tongue

The Frogfish's tongue is purple and resembled an old lady. It also had a purple feline-like creature called Mr. Whiskers, both of these creatures could speak.

Mr. Wiskers

Mr. Whiskers.

Mr. Whiskers was a cat-like figure which was part of the frogfish. His name is known because the Old Lady said, "I'll let you pet Mr. Whiskers."


When SpongeBob attempts to grab the ice cream from the ice cream lady, he realizes it is stuck the arm. In fright, he bites the substance attached to the arm and starts running from it. The frogfish then reveals itself and chases the Patty Wagon, almost to combustion, but when it gets the wagon, it is eaten by a Giant Eel from the trench.


  • Stephen Hillenburg was fascinated by the habits of Frogfish, so he decided to add this one to the film.
  • If you look closely in SpongeBob's Atlantis SquarePantis, in the Snap Happy level, you can see a frog fish hanging to the ceiling, and SpongeBob states, "There's big and then there's REALLY BIG."
  • In the The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (video game) on Game Boy Advance, the third boss was the Frogfish and was called the Ice Cream Monster. 
  • The bonus material on The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie reveals that the frogfish's tongue is an old lady selling free ice cream due to the fact by that being what would lure in SpongeBob and Patrick, as compared to the real frogfish having a tongue with the scent of fish food on it.
  • This raises questions whether or not snails are supposed to be cats, and worms are supposed to be dogs.
  • At one point in the movie, the Frogfish throws SpongeBob into the Patty Mobile with Patrick, Patrick says "Did you get the ice cream?" The Frogfish then uses the roar "dsposit2" from Doom.
