Spongebob Squarepants characters and friends
Eugene's father, Viktor Krabs, was a poor Ukrainian immigrant from whom young Eugene learned the importance of saving money. In the episode "Krusty Krab Training Video", we learn that Viktor gave his son a nickel which he has cherished and brought him a deep love for money. He learned the importance of saving money. However, after losing all of his savings in a failed investment, Mr. Krabs wound up working as the janitor on the S.S. Gourmet, gazing longingly at the elegant meals the chefs cooked. So Krabs didn't see anything special when a broken passenger from third class named Biff Quahog told him about a delicious burger he had created. Krabs stole the treasure from Quahog's room, discovered it was only a message in a bottle, and threw it, with disgust, into an empty shoe box. After coming home from the war, he remained in a deep depression until one day, while looking for his father's will, he found the old shoe box. Inside the bottle was a recipe labelled Quahog Burger. When Krabs cooked it, he found it delectable. He decided to go into business selling it, and built his restaurant by renovating the local (failing) retirement home, "The Rusty Krab," which he decided to turn into a restaurant and added a K to the name. It's possible that he is a descendant of the krabs from the prehistoric times who say "Money!". Some believe that this is not true because Mr. Krab's descent is from Ukraine. This is controdicted by the Tectonic Plates Theory.
The Krusty Krab has come close to going out of business with
such rival restaurants as the aforementioned Chum Bucket, Pretty
Patties, and The Shell Shack to name but three. The building
is also in serious disrepair, as its walls ooze green slime
and has seriously faulty wiring. Mr. Krabs idea of renovations
is simply putting band-aids on cracks in the walls (this unfortunately
doesn't work too well).
In the movie, he now owns The Krusty Krab 2, right next to the original burger stand, where SpongeBob SquarePants is the manager. (Ironically, besides the title, it is not much different from his old job.)
He appears in Lights, Camera, PANTS! In the PC version, in his office in the Krusty Krab, he can't count his money anymore and a doctor is helping. So SpongeBob SquarePants used the Golden Spatula to make the Royal Krabby Patty. Krabs eats it and now can count money. His role in the special episode of "The New Adventures of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy" is a news reporter.
