The magic pencil is a regular pencil used by the Artist at Sea. It appears in the episode "Frankendoodle," the video game Drawn to Life: SpongeBob SquarePants Edition, and the online game Hero's Choice.


It is a regular pencil with lead and a built-in eraser. There is an anchor symbol slightly above the eraser. It has the ability to bring drawings to life under the sea.

It falls off the artist's boat into the water to SpongeBob and Patrick, who use it to make magic drawings that come to life. They create DoodleBob with it, along with some other creations. After the chaos DoodleBob causes, they throw it back into the boat, where the artist finds it, but the lead breaks.
