Not to be confused with the show's live-action host, Patchy the Pirate.
Arr, I be just a paintin' of a head.
 
— Captain, "Your Shoe's Untied"
Character

Captain, also referred to as Painting[1] and as Painty[2], is a painting of a pirate's head with a parrot. He appears at the beginning of the show's opening sequence and sings the SpongeBob SquarePants Theme Song.

Description

His painted mouth is replaced by a live-action mouth, giving him the appearance of talking. The real lips in the painting are the lips of Stephen Hillenburg, the show's creator.[3]

He has a black patch over his left eye, an orange jacket, green eyes, a white shirt, a black skull-and-crossbones hat, and of course, a green parrot on his left shoulder.

History

If counting the intro, the captain has appeared in every episode. He appears in the second movie, but not the first one.

The captain also catapults the rider into the attraction by reaching and grabbing onto you on SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D: Ride, after saying "In you go!"

He is voiced by Patrick Pinney in most appearances except "Truth or Square," in the "rejected" theme songs in the former (Squidward Tentacles, Patrick Star, and Eugene H. Krabs, where Bob Joles voices him.

Major appearances

Besides being in the theme, he also makes appearances in "Your Shoe's Untied," "Wet Painters." (although he only appears as an inanimate painting) and "Unreal Estate."

Biography

According to "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water," he is an artist's rendition of Burger Beard the Pirate.

Quotes

  • "I can't hear you."
  • "Ohhhhh."
  • "Arrr, I be just a painting of a head."
  • "Good. In you go!"

Trivia

  • In the episode "Truth or Square," the original painting of the captain is replaced by a talking fortune teller-like dummy, voiced by CeeLo Green.
  • In the recent episodes of the Korean dub, the face on the painting of the captain is replaced by that of Eun Ji Won, who sings the theme song in the dub.
  • There is a set of official Top Trumps cards in which Patchy's card has a picture of the Captain instead.
  • It was painted by Calvin Liang, according to a deleted tweet on Paul Tibbitt's twitter account.
  • "Truth or Square" is the only time that the Captain has appeared without his parrot.
  • His dummy version is much different than his painting. It is very similar to Patchy's stop-motion version that appears in "It's a SpongeBob Christmas!"
