— Magic Conch Shell, "Club SpongeBob"

The Magic Conch shell is a toy used by SpongeBob and Patrick to answer their questions. It appears in the episodes "Club SpongeBob" and "SpongeBob's Place," as well as the video game SpongeBob's Truth or Square and the book Tell Me, Magic Shell.


The Magic Conch shell is a lavender-colored seashell that has a speaker inside it to help the toy and users communicate more effectively. It is operated by a pull-string.

Role in series

"Club SpongeBob"

SpongeBob and Patrick ask it questions, pull the cord, and do whatever it says. It serves as the head of their club. Later in the episode, Squidward asks it numerous times for food, which it gave SpongeBob and Patrick, but the Conch continually answers "no" every time, infuriating him.

When a Forest Ranger arrives to assist SpongeBob, Patrick, and Squidward, he reveals that he has a conch shell of his own, which tells him to go rescue them, much to Squidward's shock.

"SpongeBob's Place"

It, along with several other objects, can be seen on the floor of SpongeBob's house when SpongeBob is bored.


This list of answers given is ordered by appearances in the episode:

  • "Maybe someday."
  • "Nothing."
  • "Neither."
  • "I don't think so."
  • "No."
  • "Yes."
  • "Try asking again."


  • It is a parody of the real-world toy the Magic 8-Ball.
  • The Magic Conch shell is voiced by Sirena Irwin.
  • The Magic Conch shell was made into an app.[1]
