Pearl Krabs is the daughter of Eugene H. Krabs. She is voiced by Lori Alan.
Pearl is a main character in the SpongeBob series who made her debut in the season one episode "Squeaky Boots". She is a whale, which means Mr. Krabs was once married, and her mother was most likely a whale. She is revealed to be sixteen-years-old in the episode "Whale of a Birthday".
She seems to dislike Mr. Krabs when he is acting cheap toward her, because she always wants things either to fit in, or just to get them.
Pearl and SpongeBob are good friends, but their relationship is more complex than that. It is unknown when SpongeBob met Pearl, and their first encounter has never been shown or described. "The Chaperone" is the first instance they interact in the series, but they are already familiar with each other. In the episode, Pearl's old boyfriend Octavius Rex rudely stands her up and SpongeBob is volunteered to be her new date. He spends an entire night preparing to ensure it will be a special prom for Pearl, showing that he really cares for her. The wording SpongeBob uses in this episode implies that he is her new boyfriend: he says to Gary, "how am I supposed to compare with Pearl's old boyfriend?" SpongeBob then makes his own attire so that he will be long, tan and handsome like Octavius. He inadvertently messes everything up at the prom, but Pearl ends up having fun. SpongeBob, however, feels bad and thinks he ruined Pearl's night so he cries. Pearl cheers him up by dancing with him and they have a good time. When they return to the Krabs house later, they hold arms and look into each other's eyes until Mr. Krabs startles them.
Patrick ate one of Pearl's Krabby Patties in Welcome to the Bikini Bottom Triangle he doesn't like them as much as SpongeBob's and in Tunnel of Glove, he tried to get SpongeBob and Pearl out of the Tunnel of Glove, which they were stuck in. Pearl may know Patrick, or hardly at all.
Pearl and Sandy never interacted to each other officially but the only time seen so far was in Bubble Troubles when Pearl helped Sandy by giving air to her air helmet and said mammals need to stick together. And at the start of the episode "Mr. Krabs Takes a Vacation" though it was just a brief cameo, Sandy was seen sitting directly in front of Pearl while Mr. Krabs was getting everyone (except Squidward) excited about the story of the vacation trip. Fans think they are rival love interests of SpongeBob. In Texas, she was one of the townspeople who wanted Her to stay in Bikini Bottom. She and the rest cheering for Sandy that she decides to stay in Bikini Bottom. They are most likely best friends.
Mr. Krabs is Pearl's father. Almost every episode with Pearl, Mr. Krabs is in too. Pearl loves her father very much but gets angry when he is cheap. Mr. Krabs loves Pearl very much too. It is possible that she is adopted or that Mr Krabs wife is a whale.
Squidward and Pearl have an awkward relationship. In The Chaperone, Pearl refuses to go out with him to her prom. And in Welcome to the Bikini Bottom Triangle, he called her a 'drama queen', they were sunbathing while SpongeBob's Patty meter was empty. Pearl thinks that Squidward is such a barnacle. At the end of the episode, Pearl saves everyone by introducing the mall to the Mermaids
Friends in Bikini Bottom High
Pearl and her friends were best friends, in The Chaperone, they didn't laugh at Pearl that SpongeBob is her prom date, then in Tunnel of Glove, they teased and humiliated Pearl that SpongeBob is her boyfriend, then they told the whole TV broadcast that Pearl and SpongeBob are dating. Then at Drive Thru, Pearl had new friends. It is possible she got new friends because her old friends made fun of her. They pranked Squidward badly.
Although Pearl has been seen with her father many times throughout the series, Pearl has never been seen onscreen with her grandmother, Betsy Krabs.
Pearl is seen wearing a short pink cheerleaders dress, with a P stitched into it. She also sports short white boots, with heels. She has smooth gray skin and is huge. When she cries everyone covers themselves. She has a red heart lipstick on her nose that turns into lips when she kisses, and she has blonde hair pulled into a ponytail with a pink clip. She has blue eyes and three eyelashes on each eye.
