One of Mr. Ray's students, Nemo meets Sheldon and his friends, Pearl and Tad, while waiting to start school. He was slapped and scolded by his father Bob for making fun of Nemo's small fin (though it was Tad who did it instead of Sheldon). He was also part of the group who saw the boat. Like the other children, he tries to see how close to it he can swim. When the diver appears, he flees with the rest of the class.
He briefly appears at the end welcoming Nemo and newcomer Squirt into the class.
