Character

Old Man Jenkins is an elderly fish who appears in many episodes, often as a side gag, beginning with "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy."

Description

He has been voiced by Tom Kenny, Doug Lawrence, and regularly by Dee Bradley Baker. In the episodes "Friend or Foe," "The Main Drain," and "Séance Shméance," he is taller, has a beard, and is dark green. He also does not wear glasses in those episodes.

Personality

Old Man Jenkins' personality depends on which version he is. However, most of the time, he is a quiet, yet adventurous and ambitious elder fish.

He dislikes flying machines.[1]

Antagonistic side

  • In "The Sponge Who Could Fly," SpongeBob accidentally causes accidents for Old Man Jenkins, causing him to change his profession, from Farmer to Sailor, and then Cannonball, where he shoots SpongeBob down.
  • In "High Sea Diving," Old Man Jenkins tricks the Bikini Bottomites into believing he is King Neptune and proclaims himself as ruler of the sea. However, when the real King Neptune appears, he is not impressed with the lies Jenkins proclaimed. As punishment, Neptune zaps the deluded old man with his trident, burning him to a crisp.
  • In SpongeBob SquarePants (musical), Old Man Jenkins leads an angry mob against Sandy after believing she was the cause of the volcano about to erupt.

Role in series

His name is a character name used in various episodes as a running gag. His name is first mentioned in "Sailor Mouth." The name was originally applied to the elderly green fish, who appears commonly throughout the series, but in other episodes, the name "Old Man Jenkins" has been used for completely different characters, such as a green fish in a wheelchair and a blue fish in overalls. They are always elderly fish.

Trivia
