Title Role(s) in episode
"Sailor Mouth" (tr) At the end, when Betsy Krabs appears to swear (represented by a honking sound) after stubbing her toe on a rock, she claims that the sound came from Old Man Jenkins, who is driving by in his jalopy, which produces an identical sound. This is the green Old Man Jenkins.
"My Pretty Seahorse" (tr) He is among the things eaten by Mystery the Seahorse. Inside her stomach, he says "I don't want to be a burden." He is later spit out, and says "What did I miss?" This is a blue Old Man Jenkins who the name is not applied to in any other episode.
"Missing Identity" (tr) SpongeBob says hello to Old Man Jenkins on his way to the Krusty Krab. This is the green Old Man Jenkins.
"The Sponge Who Could Fly" (tr) He initially appears as "Farmer Jenkins", whose grain silo is destroyed by SpongeBob's malfunctioning biplane, angering him. He is the main antagonist in this episode, and later, when SpongeBob is able to fly, he reactivates a lighthouse, preventing "Sailor Jenkins" from crashing into it, only for him to turn around and crash into a rock and sink. Towards the end of the episode, "Cannonball Jenkins" launches himself at SpongeBob as he attempts to escape from the mad mob, hitting him and destroying his inflatable pants. In all three of his appearances in this episode, Jenkins says "I told you nothing good would come from city folk and their flying machines!"
"Friend or Foe" (tr) He was a friend of Krabs and his mother during the childhood of Krabs and Plankton, and helped them through their time of poverty. He is the first person to try Krabs' and Plankton's burger, and is knocked unconscious by the apparently contaminated patty. His poisoning was the reason that Mr. Krabs and Plankton fell out. There also another fish who looks like similar to Jenkins but has orange skin and hair who being Krab's and Plankton's class teacher at the elementary school. This is the incarnation from "The Sponge Who Could Fly."
"The Abrasive Side" (tr) Old Man Jenkins is colored red and blue like in "A Day Without Tears."
"High Sea Diving" (tr) He is seen when he accidentally floated up into the Great Pacific garbage patch above Bikini Bottom on his birthday. He eventually met up with SpongeBob who was attempting to perform the high sea diving stunt and claims himself to be King Neptune. SpongeBob then made a ladder to help get Jenkins back down to Bikini Bottom, which also cleaned the ocean's surface. Once Jenkins was brought back down, the real King Neptune appears and burns him to a crisp as punishment for tricking the town with his made-up stories.
  • In the video game "Creature From the Krusty Krab," Old Man Jenkins appears in the stomach of the Alaskan Bull Worm, and helps SpongeBob collect parts to create a plane. They jump out of the worm together, and soon fight huge Plankton in the plane. They are eventually captured by Plankton, but are saved after Patrick shrinks Plankton to his normal size. This is the version of Old Man Jenkins from "The Sponge Who Could Fly."
