List of characters

Gene Scallop is a television food critic that works for the Bikini Bottom News. He has a segment on the TV show called Bottom Feeding With Gene Scallop, which is right after Bob and Barbara. He is also a movie critic for Reef Cinema.


He is a purple fish with a red suit with a green bow-tie and glasses. He has black curly hair. He also has a black mustache and a yellow shirt under his suit.


The Krusty Sponge

He gave a positive review on the Krusty Krab, and praised SpongeBob for making such delicious patties. His review inspired Eugene H. Krabs to make SpongeBob SquarePants the theme of the restaurant only to poison his customers with expired patties which weren't refrigerated.

Later on, Gene would appear as a thirteenth juror who, like the rest of the jury found Mr. Krabs guilty of all charges. He probably went to the restaurant later and got "spongefied."
