After being mentioned and referenced in many episodes throughout the series, Goofy Goober finally made his first physical disguised appearance in the show as a cameo. He is shown as a waiter at Goofy Goober's Ice Cream Party Boat in this episode.

"The Goofy Newbie"

He appears in the beginning of the episode, handing balloons to the children at Goofy Goober's Ice Cream Party Boat. Squidina then calls him to kick Patrick out since he keeps trying samples instead of actually buying ice cream. Goofy Goober takes his disguise off, revealing his true form as the bodyguard, and uses an ice cream scooper to scoop Patrick out of the ice cream parlor.

On his first day of working at the Goofy Goober's Ice Cream Party Boat, Patrick temporarily takes over Goofy Goober's job by dressing up as the peanut himself. He eventually uses the costume to steal ice cream by sucking it up with the hidden vacuum in the costume. Patrick almost gets fired because of this.

"Say Awww!"

Two of the bodyguard are in Q.T.-π.


  • According to Vincent Waller, Paramount Pictures formerly did not allow any movie-exclusive content to be used in the SpongeBob SquarePants series from 2005 to 2014. This is why Goofy Goober did not make a physical appearance in an episode until "Patnocchio" (not counting the bodyguard, who was originally unrelated to Goofy Goober). He recalled, "We couldn't even use images of Goofy Goober from the movie back then."[2]
    • This makes him the second character from the movie to fully appear in the series. Perch Perkins was the first.
