He is also seen in "Hooky" as a cameo, saying his sandwich is a fried boot. In "Jellyfish Hunter," Fred puts Jellyfish Jelly in his Krabby Patty. In "New Digs," he wipes his mouth with SpongeBob's underwear. His name is revealed in "To Love a Patty" when Martha Smith calls him Harold. In "Spongicus," he is in the audience in the Chum Coliseum. He also appears to be eating spinach in chocolate spaghetti in calamari sauce in "Karate Star." He appears again in "Tutor Sauce," in which he makes a cameo appearance with Squidward, whacking him with a spatula for seemingly no reason. In "SpongeBob's Place," he is one of the Bikini Bottomites chanting "SpongeBob's Place!" after Squidward suggests to Mr. Krabs that he changes the name of the restaurant.

He is later seen mowing the grass again near the end of the episode.
