Dorsal Dan is a one-shot villain from the Nickelodeon animated series, Spongebob Squarepants, only appearing in the episode "The Getaway". He is is a criminal, who works as the getaway driver of Stickyfins Whiting. He was also Mrs. Puff's temporary boyfriend until he got arrested.
In "The Getaway", Dorsal Dan pulled up to the prison, during the escape to take away Stickyfins Whiting. However, by the time he got there, it was too late, as Stickyfins had already left with Spongebob. Mrs. Puff demanded that he drive her after them to stop Spongebob from causing any more destruction with a wanted criminal. Dorsal Dan refused to associate with her at first but when Mrs. Puff gave him a scare, he complied with her orders and started the wild goose chase. During this chase, Mrs. Puff and Dorsal San started to get along and even fall in love. In the end, Dorsal Dan got arrested, along with Stickyfins and Mrs. Puff, still in love with him, said that she would wait for him and then later begged to be arrested too.
