"It's SpongeBob NudeyPants!"— Pearl, Hooky
Pearl Krabs is a fictional character in the Nickelodeon animated series SpongeBob SquarePants. She is the daughter of Eugene H. Krabs and voiced by Lori Alan. She is a whale, which means Mr. Krabs was once married, and her mother was a whale. She is revealed to be sixteen years old in Whale of a Birthday.
She seems to dislike Mr. Krabs when he is acting cheap towards her, because she always wants things either to fit in, or just to get them or things that is expensive.
Pearl is a teenage girl who interested in anything a normal teenage girl would be interested in. She sometimes acts like a crybaby to Mr. Krabs in episodes such as 'Squeaky Boots', 'Whale of a Birthday', 'The Slumber Party', etc. She also gets angry easily when annoyed. In Mr. Krabs 'Takes a Vacation'. Pearl makes her father give her money because he doesn't share even one dime with her, so much to his dismay.
Despite her attitude, she sometimes has a heart on others such as Sandy from 'Bubble Troubles', by helping her get air into the air helmet. In 'Bossy Boots', she wanted to turn the Krusty Krab into a teenage paradise to impress Mr. Krabs, without hurting his feelings. All she wants is to be a movie star and a cheerleader, in 'Culture Shock' she cheers for Squidward's talent show but ends with great disaster. And in 'Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy VI: The Motion Picture', she wanted to be in a Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy movie but her role is to be an Invisible Boatmobile, and in the real movie, she isn't in it, much to her disappointment. She likes hanging out in the mall with her friends as reveled in Whale of a Birthday and welcome to the Bikini Bottom Triangle.
Pearl is a gray whale with blond hair in a constant ponytail. She commonly wears a pink shirt with a dark pink letter P, which stands for Pearl, as well as a dark pink skirt and white boots. The episodes "The Chaperone" and "Whale of a Birthday" feature her with a light pink dress and a tiara on. When in this outfit, the hair holder that keeps her hair in a ponytail changes color from dark pink to light pink.

In Spongebob's opinion, in Mr. Krabs Takes a Vacation, it seemed that Spongebob had a small crush on Pearl. Pearl is possibly one of the rival love interests of Spongebob.

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.
Pearl's personality slightly matches Mr. Krabs' personality, Pearl always got humiliated about his overprotection of his daughter. But sometimes, Mr. Krabs wanted money more than Pearl, which made her deeply upset.
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.

- She becomes more spoiled and rude in later episodes, possibly due to the cheapness of her father. In the episode "Selling Out," she was extremely rude to Mr. Krabs for wanting to spend time with her even though he did nothing wrong. In Welcome to the Bikini Bottom Triangle, she demands to go to the mall, even though she should be concerned that she's trapped in a deserted island.
- Since Pearl is a whale, and mammals have lungs, she needs air to breathe. It is revealed in "Bubble Troubles" that she holds air in her nose in order to breathe when underwater.
- Pearl celebrated her birthday twice in episodes, first time in "Squeaky Boots " then second time in "Whale of a Birthday" .
- Pearl and Sluggo are the only characters to be a different species to their parents.
