"The Good Krabby Name"

Mr. Krabs is looking up in the air and Sheila is seen as a kid. Sheila is probably around 18, but oddly, she was alive when Mr. Krabs was a kid, or the young version of her seen could be another family member.

  • Sheila appears to be a giant squid and is friends with Pearl, a sperm whale, which is ironic, since both creatures in real life have a predator/prey relationship.
