Jellyfish Species


Jellyfish are found in every ocean around the world. Some are just one color while others have vibrant colors on them. They produce jelly just like bees produce honey.

In the cartoon, SpongeBob SquarePants, the Jellyfish live in a place called Jellyfish Fields where the population is around 4 million, according to the episode "Jellyfish Hunter". The sport of "Jellyfishing" is very popular with SpongeBob and Patrick. Even Squidward has tried his hand at Jellyfishing but most of the time it is SpongeBob and Patrick who try and catch the Jellyfish. Sometimes they will catch one in their Jellyfishing nets and then release them, other times they will get stung by the Jellyfish, or they will squirt jelly out of the stingers of the Jellyfish.

During the Jellyfish Migration, Jellyfish from all around the world gather in Jellyfish Fields, for three days, and trade their jelly secrets. There are several different types of Jellyfish that have been seen throughout the seasons:

Jellyfish Name
Episode Debut

Blue Jellyfish Tea at the Treedome Has four stingers but no spots.

Also seen in "Jellyfish Hunter", this rare species has a nickname of 'No-Name' because SpongeBob had caught and named every jellyfish except for this one. That is, until the end of the episode where SpongeBob did catch it and renamed him 'Friend'. This is one of the only times a jellyfish has spoken. He says 'bring it on' to SpongeBob at a tease to try and catch him.
Pink Jellyfish Jellyfishing This is the most commonly seen Jellyfish in Jellyfish Fields. The number of spots varies from Jellyfish to Jellyfish. It has four tentacles. Just like Bees in the real world, these Jellyfish make jelly jam instead of honey. Also make an electric shock to anyone who annoys them. They do produce jellyfish honey, as mentioned in "Married to Money".
Giant Jellyfish Jellyfishing Not sure if queen, king, or just a normal, giant jellyfish. Zaps Squidward after he messes with a small, pink jellyfish. This giant jellyfish has seven stingers, just like the King Jellyfish. It also has six spots.

Queen Jellyfish I'm Your Biggest Fanatic A robot that Kevin the Sea Cucumber and the Jellyspotters built to zap and scare SpongeBob. It was destroyed after a King Jellyfish chased it into a cave.
