Character biography

Patrick is a pink starfish and SpongeBob's best friend. He and SpongeBob have apparently known each other since infancy, and they share many interests (jellyfishing, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, bubble blowing, etc.) It is revealed in the episode "Rule of Dumb" that he and Spongebob's pet snail, Gary, are cousins. For the animated cartoon named for this character, see SpongeBob SquarePants Wikiquote has a collection of quotations related to: SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is the eponymous character of the Nickelodeon animated series SpongeBob SquarePants. ...

Gary the Snail (full name Gary Star per Rule of Dumb) is a character in the Nickelodeon animated series series SpongeBob SquarePants, which first aired on May 1, 1999 (officially premiered on July 17, 1999). ...


Patrick is very unintelligent. He often convinces SpongeBob to accompany him in dangerous or fruitless activities, such as playing near fish hooks and eating whole pumpkins. In spite of the disastrous outcomes of Patrick's ideas, SpongeBob constantly attests to Patrick's genius, and consults the starfish for advice and guidance.


Patrick has no job or trade and spends most of his time sleeping or playing with SpongeBob. When he tries to find work, it is shown that he has little practical skill--the episode "Big Pink Loser" reveals that he struggles with tasks such as sweeping or opening a jar. Despite these shortcomings, he has very high aspirations for his life--SpongeBob once convinced him that some of his aims (multi-dimensional hero ["I want to defeat the giant monkey-men and save the 9th dimension"], doctor, and fireman) were too high, given his faculties. Patrick, has, however, shown useful supernatural abilities, such as Telekinesis, reality warping, flight and super strength, though these can be downplayed depending on the episode. His psychic powers, however, seem to be a family trait, as Gary the Snail also displays psychic ability. Look up Supernatural in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... The term psychokinesis (from the Greek ψυχή, psyche, meaning mind, soul, or breath; and κίνησις, kinesis, meaning motion; literally movement from the mind)[1][2] or PK, also known as telekinesis[3] (Greek + , literally distant-movement referring to telekinesis) or TK, denotes the paranormal ability of the mind to influence matter, time... Reality warping in superhero fiction is a superpower. ...

Superhuman Strength, Super Strength or Enhanced Strength is an ability commonly utilized in fiction. ...


Patrick's manner is very childlike, though, like SpongeBob, he prides himself on his self-proclaimed "manliness". Like his friend, he enjoys things that are considered "babyish", such as large lollipops and homemade cookies. Though Patrick is generally kind and friendly, he will, when provoked, go into rages, generally screaming his demands and--occasionally--attacking those around him. Patrick does not know his own strength, and it is possible for him to lay waste to a large area in these rages.


Patrick's house

Patrick lives under a large boulder with a hinge on its side, two doors down from SpongeBob. SpongeBob and Patrick both live on Conch Street. Many episodes depict it as a simple rock with Patrick sleeping on its underside. Others depict a living quarters under the rock, complete with furniture and appliances made of sand, though the size of the living quarters varies depending upon the episode; it is at times a bedroom and at others, a living room. Home Sweet Pineapple shows Patrick using the rock as a large blanket, with him sleeping on the sea floor. Production Order Home Sweet Pineapple is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season one. ...
