In the episode “Can You Spare a Dime,” Squidward complains that Mr. Krabs is always bragging about his money and that he should have some of it himself. The fact is that Mr. Krabs is a rich sponge, and he probably has around $31,175,000 in total assets. Assuming he pays about 30% in taxes, that would give him around $450,000 per year in entirely passive income. That’s not bad for a guy that lives under the sea and owns the Krusty Krab restaurant.
In addition to his restaurant, Krabs owns a yacht and a fully stalked library, and he has a pet snail named Sheldon. However, his real wealth is in the relationships he has with the people around him. He is able to grease the palms of people in Bikini Bottom to run his restaurant the way he wants, and he also has a reputation for being an unrelenting jerk.
Despite his prickly personality, fans of the show love him for his loyalty to his daughter Pearl. He is also a dedicated worker who will go to great lengths to keep his restaurant running smoothly. In some episodes, he even sells his soul to the Flying Dutchman for a pair of pretty pearl earrings.
It’s not clear how much each of the main actors on Spongebob Squarepants make per episode. Tom Kenny, who voices both Krabs and Patrick Star, is reportedly worth over $1 million. The rest of the cast is less well-known, but rumor has it that they all make about $100,000 per episode.
