It's SpongeBob NudeyPants!
— Pearl Krabs, "Hooky"

Pearl Krabs II[5] is the daughter of Mr. Krabs. She is voiced by Lori Alan and first appears in the episode "Squeaky Boots."

She is a sperm whale, which means her mother was most likely a whale as well. She is revealed to be sixteen years old in the episode "Whale of a Birthday."

She is shown to be an extremely spoiled, entitled, selfish, and insolent (even more so than Mr. Krabs) teenage girl, often demanding things from her father and throwing tantrums whenever they are not met.




Pearl wears a short pink cheerleader dress, with the letter P stitched into it, which stands for Pearl. She also sports short, white, heeled boots. Pearl has smooth gray skin and is huge. When she cries, she floods the area. Pearl has a red heart lipstick on her nose, which turns into lips when she kisses, and she has blonde hair pulled into a ponytail with a pink clip. She has blue eyes and six eyelashes on each eye.



Mr. Krabs

Mr. Krabs is Pearl's father, and as such, Mr. Krabs is in nearly every episode that features her. She is often very disrespectful towards him, using him as a source of money. Despite realizing this, Mr. Krabs never tells her off, even allowing her to force him to meet her demands.

Despite their troubled relationship and conflicting traits, they love each other very much and share a close bond.

Betsy Krabs

Although Pearl has been seen with her father many times throughout the series, she has not yet been seen on-screen with her grandmother, Betsy Krabs.


SpongeBob SquarePants

In the past, Pearl has appeared to like SpongeBob. In "The Chaperone," she takes him to the prom and ends up enjoying her time, despite the trouble SpongeBob causes. In "The Slumber Party," Pearl acts annoyed towards SpongeBob, due to his attempts to infiltrate her sleepover. In "Barnacle Face," she thanks SpongeBob for allowing her to go to the school dance when he puts diamonds on her face. In some episodes, they display a love-hate relationship.

Patrick Star

Pearl knows Patrick, but they are not friends. Patrick ate one of Pearl's Krabby Patties in "Welcome to the Bikini Bottom Triangle," but he does not like them as much as SpongeBob's. In the episode "Tunnel of Glove," he tries to get SpongeBob and Pearl out of the Tunnel of Glove, in which they are stuck.

Sandy Cheeks

Sandy and Pearl have not had much interaction, but they have encountered one another. In "Bubble Troubles," Pearl helps Sandy by giving her air. They seem to share a mutual friendship, as Pearl believes that mammals need to stick together. In "Texas," Pearl is one of the townspeople who want Sandy to stay in Bikini Bottom. She and the rest cheer for Sandy deciding to stay. She also attends Sandy's birthday party in "Feral Friends."

Squidward Tentacles

Squidward and Pearl have an awkward relationship. In "The Chaperone," Pearl refuses to go out with him to her prom. In "Welcome to the Bikini Bottom Triangle," Squidward calls her a "drama queen." Pearl thinks that Squidward is such a "barnacle."[3] She likes teasing him, as seen in "Drive Thru." In "Whale Watching," it's revealed that Squidward used to babysit Pearl when she was a kid.

Friends in Bikini Bottom High

Pearl and her friends were best friends. In "The Chaperone," they do not laugh at Pearl that SpongeBob is her prom date, then in "Tunnel of Glove," they tease and humiliate her that SpongeBob is her "boyfriend," and then tell the whole TV broadcast that Pearl and SpongeBob are dating. In "Drive Thru," Pearl has new friends.
