Special Sub-Topic: It's Not Easy, Being a Plankton
|What is Plankton's full name?|
Sheldon James Plankton Jr.. This is revealed in episode "Plankton's Army" from season 3. Plankton's first appearance on the show was on episode "Plankton!" from season 1.
|Who is Plankton's wife?|
Karen. Karen is his computer W.I.F.E. (Wired Integrated Female Electroencephalograph). She first appeared in the episode "Plankton!" of season 1. Karen has also appeared as a mobile device, in the "SpongeBob SquarePants Movie".
|What is the name of the restaurant Plankton owns?|
The Chum Bucket. Plankton is the owner and founder of The Chum Bucket, which is literally a bucket. The Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs' restaurant, is just across the street.
|What is the item that we see Plankton fight for in almost every episode?|
The Krabby Patty recipe. Plankton and Mr. Krabs came up with a great patty recipe, but a fight between the two ended in them tearing the recipe in two, Mr. Krabs keeping most of it, and Plankton only keeping the "chum" part.
|There is a "SpongeBob SquarePants" episode title containing Plankton's name.|
True. One example is episode 108b from season 6, which is called "Plankton's Regular", and is about Plankton getting a regular customer in his restaurant, who would shortly after leave him, as we discover Karen was paying him to go there.
|There is an episode in which Plankton is bigger than the whole town.|
True. In "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy IV" from season 3, SpongeBob decides to play with Mermaid Man's utility belt, causing Squidward and Patrick to become smaller, following Sandy and then the whole town! Plankton was on a trip and when he got back, he found himself bigger than everyone else! Ironic, huh?
|Plankton's body is mostly what color?|
Green. This is because real plankton in the water can be green. His eye is red and yellow. Some real-life planktons do have only one eye, although considering they are microscopic forms of life, their eyes are pretty small too!
|Plankton is scared of which animal?|
Whales. The reason for his phobia is the fact that a pod of whales ate his ancestors, as whales actually do eat plankton.
|Of all the main characters in the show, Plankton is usually the smallest one.|
Yes. At 2 centimeters tall, he is also the smallest character in Bikini Bottom.
|In one episode, Plankton is described by Karen as 1% evil and 99% what?|
Hot gas. In episode "Plankton!" from season 1, almost at the end of the episode, we can see this description on Plankton's scanner. Karen also scanned seaweed, concluding that seaweed is "50% sea and 50% weed."
