— Patrick Star, "Band Geeks"

Patrick[13] Star[14] (born August 17[15]) is one of the ten main characters of the animated series SpongeBob SquarePants,[16] and the main character of his own spin-off, The Patrick Star Show. He is SpongeBob's best friend as well as one of his two neighbors.

He is a naïve and overweight pink sea star. He is voiced by Bill Fagerbakke and first appears in "Help Wanted."

He lives under a rock in the underwater city of Bikini Bottom. SpongeBob and Squidward are his two neighbors, and, when viewed on the front side, are to the right of his residence.

He and SpongeBob both tend to bother Squidward, though they do it unknowingly and have good intentions. In the original series, Patrick is the son of Herb and Margie Star and the brother of Sam Star. In The Patrick Star Show, Patrick has a different family: parents Cecil and Bunny, grandfather GrandPat, and sister Squidina.[17]

Production details[]

Stephen Hillenburg first designed a prototypic starfish character while teaching marine science at the Ocean Institute in California.[18] He created the character for The Intertidal Zone, an educational picture book used to teach young students at the Institute, which would eventually lead to the creation of SpongeBob SquarePants.[19] This prototype starfish character was much more realistic than Patrick; it had an eyespot on each arm and a large mouth in the center of its body. In 1987, Hillenburg left the institute to pursue a career in animation.[19][20]

After Martin Olson suggested that Hillenburg develop The Intertidal Zone into a television show, Hillenburg began fleshing out the characters. Patrick Star was conceived as a starfish to embody the animal's nature; according to Hillenburg, starfish look "dumb and slow," but they are actually "very active and aggressive" in reality, like Patrick.[21] Hillenburg incorporated character comedy rather than typical humor on the show to emphasize "things that are more about humorous situations and about characters and their flaws."[22] He designed Patrick and SpongeBob as such because "they're whipping themselves up into situations—that's always where the humor comes from. The rule is: Follow the innocence and avoid topical [humor]."[23] Hillenburg described Patrick as "probably the dumbest guy in town."[24]

Despite being depicted as having a good temperament or state of mind, Patrick has been shown in some episodes to have a tantrum. Patrick's emotional outbreak was originally written only for the first-season episode "Valentine's Day," where SpongeBob and Sandy try to give Patrick a Valentine's Day gift, and "was supposed to be a one-time thing."[25] However, according to episode writer Jay Lender, "when that show came back it felt so right that his dark side started popping up everywhere. You can plan ahead all you want, but the characters eventually tell you who they are."[25]

Many characters in the show have their own unique footstep sound. The sound of Patrick's footsteps is recorded by the show's Foley crew, with a Foley talent wearing a slip-on shoe. Jeff Hutchins, the show's sound designer said, "[Going] barefoot makes it tough to have much presence, so we decided that Patrick would be performed with shoes on."[26]


Bill Fagerbakke 2

Bill Fagerbakke, the voice of Patrick.

Patrick's voice is provided by actor Bill Fagerbakke, who also does the voices of several other characters on SpongeBob SquarePants. While creating the show and writing its pilot episode in 1997, Hillenburg and Derek Drymon, the show's then creative director, were also conducting auditions to find voices for the show's characters.[27] Fagerbakke auditioned for the role of Patrick after Tom Kenny, SpongeBob's voice actor, had been cast. Bill Fagerbakke said, "Steve is such a lovely guy, and I had absolutely no feeling for the material whatsoever." He described his experience in the audition, saying "I was just going in for another audition, and I had no idea what was in store there in terms of the remarkable visual wit and really the kind of endearing child-like humanity in the show. I couldn't pick that up from the audition material at all. I was just kind of perfunctorily trying to give the guy what he wanted."[28]

Fagerbakke referred to Patrick as "AquaDauber," a reference to his role as Michael "Dauber" Dybinski on the 1990s sitcom Coach in the first few years of working on the show.[29] Patrick is "enormously entertaining to portray" because, according to Fagerbakke, "when I'm performing Patrick, there are many secrets that I could never divulge."[30] Fagerbakke's approach in voicing Patrick is "much the same way I would do [to] any kind of character."[28] "I'm always looking for opportunities to explore that freewheeling imagination and insanity of children. To be able to plug into that and let that carry you into a performance is such a gas, I have so much fun with that. I love kids; I raised two girls and I love being a parent," he said.[29] The cast members record as a whole cast. Fagerbakke says that the situation improves his performance as a voice actor because "there is something remarkable that happens when people are working together that is unique to that."[29] Fagerbakke modeled his performance whenever Patrick is angry after that of American actress Shelley Winters.[31]

Fagerbakke has been compared to Patrick's character, which he concurs with. Kenny said that "Bill [Fagerbakke] is a big guy. The world is almost too small for him. He's a force of nature, like Patrick."[32] Writer Jay Lender said, describing Fagerbakke in the recording studio, "Bill Fagerbakke is the most thoughtful performer I've ever seen in the booth—he was always asking questions and really trying to get into the mindset, such as it is, of Patrick."[25] Writer Kent Osborne said of Fagerbakke, "He is this big guy, and he plays Patrick so well. He's just this big guy, and he lumbers around."[33] Fagerbakke said, "I'm clumsy. I'm goofy. I make mistakes all the time" and agreed that "I guess I'm a lot of Patrick."[30]


According to the SpongeBob SquarePants Annual 2014 book published by the Egmont Group, Patrick's birthday is on August 17.

Sam was lost at sea when she and Patrick were children. He did not see her again until the episode "Big Sister Sam." In the same episode, he mentions how Sam was his 'rock' when they were younger and how she looked out for him, implying they were somehow separated from their parents when Patrick was a baby. However, in "I'm with Stupid," he can immediately recognize his parents and it's implied they are not long-lost.

When he was a toddler, his parents would ring a bell in order for Patrick to take a bath, causing Patrick to have a severe tantrum every time he hears a bell.[34]

Patrick met SpongeBob when the two were babies, as shown in "The Secret Box."

Sing a Song of Patrick 037

Patrick as a child, presenting his poem.

When he was a kid, Patrick tended to recite poems during gym class, which ruined his reputation and made him a target for dodgeball players, as shown in "Sing a Song of Patrick."

Later, he attended Kamp Koral, where he reunited with SpongeBob and met his future neighbor Squidward as his counselor.

When he was 19[35], he starred in his imaginary variety program, The Patrick Show!, before dropping it.

When he was an adult, he moved out and rented a rock house eventually to own it. He lives next door to Squidward.

As revealed in "Home Sweet Pineapple," Patrick was kicked out of his parents' house at one point and never allowed to come back. He thus created his rock, with the only difference being that he added a satellite antenna to it.

At some point, Patrick went to community college with Flats the Flounder, although he forgot what he studied there and likely failed to graduate.[1]

Patrick celebrated three unspecified birthdays in the episodes "The Donut of Shame," "Overbooked," and "Stuntin'."

One day, when his neighbor Squidward was gardening, a pineapple fell from a ship into the ocean, landing on Squidward's garden creating the pineapple house. Meanwhile, SpongeBob was looking for a house of his own; when all hope seemed lost, SpongeBob and real estate agent Incidental 49A saw the pineapple house's creation and Incidental 49A said she had forgotten about the house. SpongeBob bought it. To this day, they have been neighbors.[36]

Later, in the episode "Driven to Tears," he gained but lost his driver's license, and threw his Bass Blaster 3000 away from that he won.

At some point, Patrick learned how to put on a diaper.

At some point, he met Grandma SquarePants.

At some point he and SpongeBob once took care of a baby scallop they found and named it Junior. They lost custody over him once Junior learned to fly.

He once became a mascot for the Frozen Krabby Patty but soon went back to his usual life.

Sing a Song of Patrick 168

At some point, he wrote a song named "Twinkle, Twinkle, Patrick Star" and submitted it to Bigshot Records for $100, to make it into a song.[37]

He once rented out his front yard to a fish named Howard in "New Fish in Town."

He was reunited with his sister Sam after she got lost in the surf in "Big Sister Sam."

He, along with SpongeBob, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, Sandy, and Plankton, became superheroes while on land to retrieve the Krabby Patty secret formula from Burger Beard.



Patrick's prototype The Patrick Star Show design. Same clothing as in the main series, with the addition of a blue tie and white bands. He wears different clothes in the final version.

Patrick is an overweight, coral-pink starfish (whose exact shade of pink is designated by Pantone to be Patrick Star Pink[38]) with a pointy head, thick eyebrows, lavender eyelids, and red dots across in his body. In season 1, due to unsteady or cel-animation, his eyebrows were thin, and in the shape of 2 sideways "M" shapes in the form of a pink unibrow. The flowers on his pants were also dark purple instead of light.

Your Shoe's Untied 268

Patrick's new "Z" shaped eyebrows, as seen in "Your Shoe's Untied."

At the beginning of season 2, Patrick's eyebrows were slightly thicker and shaped like the letter Z. However, in most of "Your Shoe's Untied" and "Big Pink Loser," his eyebrows are in the original sideways M shape as they were in season 1. Patrick's new Z shaped eyebrows first appeared in "Your Shoe's Untied" when "Loop de Loop" is playing in the part where Patrick gets a shoe as a scoop of ice cream.

He is shown to have either a full set of teeth, a single tooth, or sometimes none at all. In seasons 1 through 3, Patrick had been shown with plenty of teeth, but from The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie onward, he has been shown with only one tooth. He was seen with one tooth for one or a few scenes in "Christmas Who?," "Survival of the Idiots," " The Secret Box," "I'm with Stupid," "Rock-a-Bye Bivalve," "Krusty Krab Training Video," "Chocolate with Nuts," and "New Student Starfish" though.

Patrick usually wears only a pair of lime-green shorts with purple flowers on them. The first movie and "Born to Be Wild" reveal that he wears Goofy Goober underwear, which he wore for three years straight. He changed out of them upon becoming a "man." When sleeping alone, he normally just wears plain underwear, but when he has company, he wears lavender pajamas with pale green flowers on them, along with a matching nightcap.

In various spin-off media, he's slightly redesigned. In Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years, he wears the same shorts as in the original show, but now wears a green shirt and a red handkerchief. In The Patrick Star Show, he wears a green shirt with white flowers on it, and purple shorts.

Like various characters, Patrick has no ears but can hear just fine. A reference to his lack of ears is made at the end of the episode "No Nose Knows," where he is shown to have gotten a giant set of ears through plastic surgery and says, "I heard that." at the very end. However, he is shown to have an ear that he did not know he had previously in "Bummer Vacation."

Unlike most of the other main characters of the series, Patrick lacks a nose. Because of this, he generally cannot smell, as seen in "Something Smells," in which SpongeBob has bad breath, as the scent bounces off of Patrick's face. However, in "The Battle of Bikini Bottom," Patrick can grow a nose through sheer force of will. In "No Nose Knows," it has been established that Patrick doesn't have a nose so he receives a nose through plastic surgery. He goes through many noses; however, when Patrick tries to get rid of every bad scent, SpongeBob, Squidward, Mr. Krabs and Sandy deform Patrick's nose by building a giant ball of trash and sewage so the nose can disintegrate. In some episodes, Patrick can smell things without having a nose. In "Pet Sitter Pat," he can smell, because he thinks Gary has a bad odor even though he smelt his armpit, not Gary. He is also able to smell in "Patrick's Staycation." Throughout "I Smell a Pat," Patrick uses a variety of different noses to detect scents around his house.

As a starfish, Patrick normally does not possess any fingers. However, he is often given an extra finger or thumb whenever he gestures with his hands. Patrick also naturally lacks feet, which he points out in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, but he has single-toed feet in "The Battle of Bikini Bottom" and is shown with tiny toes during a close-up shot in "My Leg!"

Eye colors[]

His eyes are simple black dots and are addressed by such on his driver's license. However, some appearances show that Patrick's eyes are either olive green, light blue, purple, green, light brown, blue, dark brown, or brown:

Knowledge can never replace friendship. I prefer to be an idiot!
      —Patrick Star, Patrick SmartPants

Patrick is lazy, dim-witted, unmannerly, naïve, and generally ignorant. Despite being portrayed as a full-grown adult, Patrick acts very immature and partakes in many childish activities with SpongeBob. Patrick's personality is similar to SpongeBob's, but they are not interchangeable, as SpongeBob is a lot more intelligent, responsible, optimistic, mannerly, and down-to-earth than Patrick. His dim-wittedness often annoys SpongeBob and Patrick and causes both him and Squidward a lot of problems. He and SpongeBob often annoy Squidward unknowingly due to SpongeBob's laugh and impulsiveness and Patrick's stupidity.

Valentine's Day 151

Patrick ravaging.

He has a short temper and occasionally exhibits psychopathic behavior if something upsets him. In "Nature Pants," Patrick goes on a psycho-spree throughout Jellyfish Fields and attempts to kidnap SpongeBob when he has decided to leave his pineapple home and live with the jellyfish. In "Valentine's Day," Patrick goes on a rampage and causes mass disruption at the carnival in response to having yet to receive a present from SpongeBob while seeing that he gave presents to everyone else. This includes ripping off the heart man's costume, attempting to destroy the Heart-a-Whirl, and stealing a little girl's lollipop and eating it violently in front of her. In "Big Pink Loser," Patrick furiously scrapes the top of a broomstick against the Krusty Krab floorboards out of anger that he can't do anything right. In the same episode, he also shouted at a customer and slammed the phone for thinking the customer called him a "Krusty Krab," even though they were referring to the restaurant. In "The Fry Cook Games," he goes berserk when SpongeBob erases a part of his name tag to make it say "Rick." In "No Weenies Allowed," Patrick gets angry whenever he is called "Tubby," and punches SpongeBob for calling him that.

Due to his lack of superiority in contrast to the other characters, Patrick suffers from low self-esteem and can exhibit varying levels of jealousy when witnessing the success of others. In "No Hat for Pat" and "Patrick-Man!," Patrick shows jealousy to SpongeBob for having a job and special worker's hat. Patrick's jealousy is also a driving point on the plot in "No Nose Knows," where he expresses his insecurity over being in the minority of citizens without a nose, prompting him to get one through plastic surgery. In "The Executive Treatment," Patrick willingly impersonates an executive out of jealousy toward their exclusive ability to purchase a special Krabby Patty. In "Big Pink Loser," Patrick wears SpongeBob's shirt and models his rock after SpongeBob's pineapple to emulate his lifestyle and prove he is worthy of an award.

Nature Pants 123

Patrick trying to capture SpongeBob.

He also joins in with the exploits of others, usually SpongeBob, to fit in. In "Mid-Life Crustacean," Patrick, SpongeBob, and Mr. Krabs attempt to steal Betsy Krabs' panties, as part of the "panty raid." In "Doing Time," Patrick assists SpongeBob in his local bank robbery scheme, intent on getting arrested to free Mrs. Puff from jail. In "Opposite Day," he and SpongeBob impersonate Squidward and claim his house as their property, intent on annoying the real estate agent and preventing Squidward from moving out of town. In "Chocolate with Nuts," as a means to boost their profit as salesmen, SpongeBob and Patrick spread lies to their customers about the chocolate bars they're selling, claiming them to have special abilities.

Patrick has an unusual mean streak that - depending on the episode, is either exhibited out of jealousy, low self-esteem, acquired situational narcissism, or simply stupidity. He is also shown to lose respect for others and become obsessed when obtaining some form of power, talent, wealth, or publicity, and it usually drives him apart from SpongeBob. In "Rule of Dumb," when he becomes the king of Bikini Bottom, he abuses his authority by stealing from others and using his fame to cover up his arrogant attitude, acting like the world revolves around him, and becomes a ruthless tyrant and goes mad with power. In "Karate Star," Patrick gains a talent in karate and obsessively uses it everywhere around Bikini Bottom regardless of the circumstances until SpongeBob talks him out of it at the end. In "Patrick-Man!," Patrick's superhero alter-ego goes to his head and causes him to frame innocent citizens for crimes. It is not until he realizes how tedious being a hero is that he stops. In "Goodbye, Krabby Patty?," Patrick becomes famous and rich as a result of his new occupation as the frozen Krabby Patty mascot, which causes him to betray SpongeBob on account of his acquired superiority.

Wet Painters 131

Patrick slamming a computer on Mr. Krabs first dollar trying to get the paint off.

Patrick's stupidity and aggressive behavior extends to damaging property owned by others. In "Christmas Who?," he and SpongeBob chop down Squidward's coral tree without his consent so they can make room for a Christmas tree. In "Wet Painters," Patrick destroys Mr. Krabs' computer by smashing it on the dollar to eliminate the paint stain, which obviously backfires. In "Squidtastic Voyage," he destroys the control panel of Sandy's submarine with an axe after thinking she's trapped in the speaker since her voice is heard through there. In "Pat No Pay," Patrick's misuse of the trash disposal causes the Krusty Krab to explode. In "The Card," Patrick endangers a trading card that belongs to SpongeBob by using it to clean his teeth, using it to unlock his rock when he can't find his key, using it to scrape the rust off his barbecue grill, and finally using it as a napkin to wipe off the cheese from the burgers he ate, which leads to the card's destruction. In "Karate Star," Patrick's love for karate goes to his head and results in him karate-chopping nearly everything he sees in public, eventually leading to the destruction of the Barg'N-Mart. In "Big Sister Sam," he allows his sister to demolish SpongeBob and Squidward's houses. In "Sandy's Nutmare," when Sandy learns that her tree is dying, Patrick, attempts to chop down her tree for the wood with a hatchet. When Sandy tells him she can save her tree with science, Patrick throws the hatchet, which makes a hole in the tree dome for water to come through.

Patrick is also selfish and sometimes a bad friend towards SpongeBob, often endangering him, sometimes intentionally and other times because of his dim-whiteness. In "Yours, Mine and Mine," SpongeBob orders a meal at the Krusty Krab and shares it with Patrick. When Patrick complains about the exclusion of a toy, Mr. Krabs makes a new Krabby Patty toy which was for both SpongeBob and Patrick. SpongeBob lets Patrick play with it until the morning, and when the morning arrives SpongeBob tells Patrick to give him a turn, but Patrick hogs the toy and refuses to share it with SpongeBob. He ends up eating it when he decides neither one of them gets to share it. In "Dumped," Patrick insists that Gary likes him now and that he wants to be his pet instead of SpongeBob's, letting him stay in his rock and refusing to give him back to SpongeBob. In "I'm with Stupid," Patrick's parents are coming to visit Patrick and Patrick believes his parents think he's stupid, so SpongeBob agrees to pretend to be an idiot so Patrick would look smart in comparison. The plan works as SpongeBob successfully convinces Patrick's parents that he is stupid, but Patrick then treats SpongeBob as if he were that dumb, which makes his parents think that Patrick taught him to become smarter which drives SpongeBob nuts. In "Stuck in the Wringer," Patrick causes SpongeBob to become stuck in his bathroom wringer with his Forever Glue, which causes SpongeBob a lot of problems and makes him a disturbance to everyone. In "Suds," when SpongeBob got the suds he called Sandy to take him to the doctor, but Patrick tells SpongeBob not to go to the doctor because it's "a horrible, horrible place." He then pretends to be a doctor and does his treatment to try to cure SpongeBob, but it only caused him to inflate. In "The Splinter," he once again pretends to be a doctor. SpongeBob asks Patrick to get rid of the splinter, but he only made it worse by hitting a hammer through it and rubbing garbage in the wound, causing it to swell up and produce pus. In "Fungus Among Us," he made SpongeBob's ick worse by creating a mobile bubble after popping SpongeBob's quarantine bubble. In "Something Smells," Patrick convinces SpongeBob that the reason everyone has been avoiding him is because he is ugly, even though his bad breath caused by the peanut-onion sundae is what's causing them to turn away from them. In "Hooky," Patrick tries to persuade SpongeBob to skip work to play on the hooks with him even after Mr. Krabs told them how dangerous they are, and tells SpongeBob not to listen to Mr. Krabs. In "Driven to Tears," Patrick tries to make SpongeBob jealous of his new driver's license and literally rubs it in his face. He also caused mass destruction by running three red lights and makes an illegal u-turn through an orphanage. In "Life of Crime," he gets mad at SpongeBob and blames him for eating his chocolate bar when he already ate his.

Grandma's Kisses 151

Patrick eating cookies like a baby.

Patrick is shown to have a hypocritical side, as he tries to act as a mentor to SpongeBob, but ends up taking his own advice for granted. In "Grandma's Kisses," he tells SpongeBob to act like a grown-up so his grandmother will stop kissing him, but later behaves like a baby himself by thriving on being fed cookies and read stories to by Grandma SquarePants. When SpongeBob points out his hypocrisy, Patrick says that being a "grown-up" is boring and that he likes being a baby. In "Something Smells," when SpongeBob believes that he is shunned by everyone in town because they think he is ugly, Patrick tells him that he should accept his ugliness. Later, Patrick thinks he caught SpongeBob's ugliness and refuses to accept it, declaring that he was once one of the "beautiful people." In "Yours, Mine and Mine," Patrick agrees to share the kid's meal with SpongeBob, but later eats it all and hogs the Krabby Patty toy; when SpongeBob tries to reason with him, Patrick scolds SpongeBob over his lack of sharing, when Patrick himself is hogging the toy. In "Little Yellow Book," Patrick is among the many people who laugh at SpongeBob's secrets revealed by Squidward, but he later joins in on lambasting Squidward for doing so when SpongeBob runs away crying, throwing fruit at Squidward and calling him a "diary reader." When Squidward points out that Patrick also reads the diary, Patrick blows him off and accuses him of "blaming everyone else."

Despite this, he still wants to help his friends, even if he doesn't do it right. He enjoys spending time with SpongeBob and will always turn to him when things don't seem right. Patrick is a nice person at heart and has had many positive interactions with the townspeople; he even genuinely cares about Squidward despite the latter's open dislike towards him and SpongeBob.


Patrick is well-known for his dimwitted, naïve, and lazy nature. He wants to spend time dwelling in his rock and lacks common sense, which often means that he is incapable of doing things right, as explained when he was briefly employed at the Krusty Krab while trying to earn an award in "Big Pink Loser." Patrick occasionally lacks a basic understanding of everyday concepts and tends to make up his own words.

Big Pink Loser 061

Patrick working at the Krusty Krab, forgetting the name of the restaurant.

In some episodes, Patrick has trouble with even the most rudimentary tasks and displays little common sense or intelligence. His can forget how to do the most instinctual of actions, such as eating or falling over. He once forgot that he ate a chocolate bar the second after he ate it in "Life of Crime," and can't open a jar without assistance in "Big Pink Loser."

However, in some episodes, he is shown to be even smarter than SpongeBob, most notably in "Jellyfishing," when he realized that Squidward doesn't like them, but SpongeBob didn't.

At other times, he can appear almost so brilliant that it surprises the other characters, and is prone to fits of temporary intelligence, which the other characters question and may not even understand themselves. Often however, he immediately forgets the articulated sentence that he had just said when asked about it further. In earlier episodes, Patrick appeared to be somewhat more intelligent, often making profound comments and being very articulate, such as when he, having got paint on Mr. Krabs' first dollar with SpongeBob, complained about the fact that his first dollar is just an ordinary dollar and they should replace it with another ordinary dollar, though he forgets about it at the end and ends up buying a candy bar.[39] In "Help Wanted," Patrick was shown to be more competent when it came to giving advice, as he encouraged SpongeBob to apply for his lifelong dream job. In "SB-129," Patrick seems to be aware of Squidward's hatred toward him and SpongeBob, though in later episodes he is just as oblivious as SpongeBob in terms of their annoyance to Squidward. Sometimes, Patrick has sudden brief outbursts of intelligent responses, as seen in the episode "SpongeBob's Last Stand," he tells SpongeBob how the Shelly Superhighway will destroy the ecosystem, seemingly out of nowhere, because he has no prior knowledge of ecology.

In "Squidtastic Voyage," he shocks SpongeBob and Sandy by coming up with a brilliant solution to refuel their empty gas tanks to escape Squidward's stomach. In "Sailor Mouth," when looking at words on a dumpster, he has trouble reading the word "krabs" but can read the curse word fine, and tells SpongeBob it's a "sentence enhancer," thus convincing him to curse on a regular basis. In "The Secret Box," he says "The inner machinations of my mind are an enigma."

He also has displayed some common sense and wisdom in some episodes, such as when he warned SpongeBob that he would go broke if he kept giving away his money in "Porous Pockets" and told SpongeBob that when he has money he has to do more than just spend it; he has to have a plan first. When SpongeBob admits he was wrong about the money and his "friends," Patrick replies with "There is no right or wrong when it comes to that stuff SpongeBob, there just either is or there isn't." In "That's No Lady," Patrick realizes that he should not pretend to be someone he is not. In "Patty Hype," when SpongeBob's Pretty Patties were not selling, SpongeBob gets discouraged, and Patrick says "SpongeBob, sometimes we have to go deep inside ourselves to solve our problems," causing Patrick to literally go inside one of SpongeBob's pores. In "The Lost Mattress," Patrick was able to figure out everything that SpongeBob didn't, like how Squidward was planning for them to get eaten by the guard worm by calling them "worm bait" and he quickly realized that the guard worm liked the wooden spoon SpongeBob was holding. He is also shown to be an excellent driver unlike SpongeBob, as shown in "Driven to Tears" when he got a perfect score on his boating test and got his boating license, both of which SpongeBob failed at hundreds of times. In "Boating School," he helped SpongeBob cheat on his boating exam by telling him exactly how to drive properly. In "CopyBob DittoPants," he says the line "life is but a walking shadow" after all the copies disappeared. In "The Patterfly Effect," Patrick is able to successfully graduate from college and reinvent a time closet from scratch.

Patrick seems to detect malice and sarcasm more easily than SpongeBob. He also displays witty banter at times and often can be sarcastic. He is generally well-intentioned but often inadvertently causes trouble, for both himself and also his friends, such as in "Patrick-Man!" when he gets Mrs. Puff arrested and trashes the Krusty Krab, although he also ended up saving the Krusty Krab from the Dirty Bubble.

Interests and hobbies[]

Patrick mainly likes to dwell under his rock and act lazy and unproductive. He usually partakes in sitting on the couch, watching TV, eating junk food, and sleeping. However, he does go outside every now and then, typically to hang out with SpongeBob. Whenever doing so, he and SpongeBob like to indulge in their two favorite hobbies: bubble blowing and jellyfishing. He is also shown to enjoy sand-boarding,[40][41] even if he is not very good at it. In addition to bubble-blowing and jellyfishing, Patrick and SpongeBob have a fondness for engaging in childlike activities, such as playing pretend, toys, and board games, as exemplified in numerous episodes throughout the series, like "Toy Store of Doom" and "A Friendly Game."

Patrick has an obsession with junk food and will stop at nothing to fulfill his enormous appetite. He is a Krusty Krab regular and enjoys eating their Krabby Patties, as well as Triple Gooberberry Sunrises from Goofy Goober's Ice Cream Party Boat. He has a bizarre taste in food and has low standards when it comes to appetite: His favorite flavor of ice cream is Dill Pickle Swirl with mustard and bacon bits,[42] and he enjoyed some of SpongeBob's peanut onion sundae in "Something Smells." He often rummages through garbage cans and dumpsters and eats the thrown-away foods.[43][44] Patrick has shown himself willing to consume inedible sources, and notably enjoys them: In "Little Yellow Book," he eats diapers covered in ketchup. In "Pet Sitter Pat" and "Gary's New Toy," he has no problem eating snail food.

Like SpongeBob, Patrick's favorite television series is The Adventures of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy. He idolizes the titular duo and views them as role models. Patrick and SpongeBob occasionally dress up as them and emulate their heroic antics.[45][46][47][48]

Rock Bottom 002

SpongeBob and Patrick at Glove World.

Patrick and SpongeBob like to go to Glove World!, a glove-themed amusement park in Bikini Bottom. They show their dedication to the park by buying its merchandise and wearing their marketed apparel.[49]

One of SpongeBob and Patrick's favorite TV shows is The Sir Urchin & Snail Fail Show!

Abilities and talents[]

Patrick, although mentally weak and naïve, has many skills, such as:

  • CPR administration: In "Naughty Nautical Neighbors," Patrick shows the ability to utilize CPR as he uses it to save Squidward after he nearly chokes on a fork. He also displays his CPR administration skills in "Squidward the Unfriendly Ghost" when he and SpongeBob believe that they "killed" Squidward, albeit to no avail since in reality, Squidward wasn't dead, rather they accidentally destroyed a wax sculpture of him. He also performs CPR on Bubble Bass in "Swamp Mates" while he was unconscious.
  • Dancing: Patrick once jazz-danced with SpongeBob in "Squidtastic Voyage" and wanted to go square-dancing with Squidward in "Just One Bite," but Squidward didn't want to do it, which made Patrick feel sad.
  • Disguising: In "That's No Lady," Patrick stays in disguise as "Patricia" for a long time. He takes off the suit, embarrassing Squidward and Mr. Krabs.
  • Doing absolutely nothing: In "Big Pink Loser," he gets an award for "doing absolutely nothing longer than anyone else." In "Club SpongeBob," he and SpongeBob sit and do nothing for days. In "The Pink Purloiner," he does nothing for 8 hours straight, while SpongeBob is spying on him. In "Stanley S. SquarePants," Patrick shows SpongeBob and Stanley the art of doing nothing.
  • Driving: Patrick has shown to be an excellent driver, unlike SpongeBob as seen in "Driven to Tears." He also gives SpongeBob proper advice on how to ace his boating test in "Boating School." In "FarmerBob," he is revealed to have a driver's license and tractor's license.
  • Drumming: When it comes to music, Patrick's main instrument is the drums. He is SpongeBob & The Hi-Seas' drummer[50][51] and was the lead drummer in the Bikini Bottom Super Band.[52] He also drums at the end of the "Campfire Song Song" in "The Camping Episode," during "Together" in "The Inmates of Summer," and on Squidward's House Party in "Tentacle-Vision." He even plays a drum solo on his stomach in "Krabby Road" with the band Plankton and the Patty Stealers.
  • Eating: Patrick is shown to have an enormous appetite and can swallow large amounts of food in one bite. In "Pressure," Patrick eats a Deluxe Krabby Patty in one bite. He also eats an entire table of breakfast foods in "Rock-a-Bye-Bivalve." He was once able to eat 1,000 Krabby Patties in 5 minutes, which is seen in "What's Eating Patrick?" Patrick seems to be able to use his mouth like a vacuum cleaner, as seen when he devours the various picnic foods in "Club SpongeBob" and the high quantity of Krabby Patties with extra cheese in "Pat No Pay."
  • Jellyfishing: Patrick sometimes forgets how to jellyfish; however, once reminded, he does it particularly well.
  • Karate chopping: In "Karate Star," Patrick is a skilled karate "genius" at chopping. However, his hand started to go out of control and he cut it off, regenerating his limbs like SpongeBob in "Graveyard Shift."
  • Performing extreme stunts: Patrick is sometimes an ultimate daredevil, as seen in "I Had an Accident" and "A Life in a Day." In the latter, he performed several dangerous acts to emulate Larry's lifestyle, although he gave up when he learned of how life-threatening this can be. He also does a few moderately extreme stunts in "Extreme Spots."
  • Regeneration: In "Karate Star," Patrick goes completely crazy and rips his arm off which a new Patrick grew from. Once he explained to SpongeBob starfish regenerate their arms, they were both fine with it.
  • Levitating: Patrick can levitate infinitely. This was shown in "No Weenies Allowed" when he flails himself around to make it look like SpongeBob was beating him up, and in "Night Light" when runs on a beam of light up to the sun.
  • Seahorse riding: In "Dunces and Dragons," Patrick does not know how to ride a seahorse; however, in "A Life in a Day," he can do it particularly well.
  • Singing: Patrick has never had a solo and rarely sings; however, he does it fairly well when he does.
  • Staring: Patrick is good at staring with SpongeBob in their staring contest game in various episodes.
  • Strength: Patrick is shown to be very physically strong; in many episodes, he can lift his rock. In "What Ever Happened to SpongeBob?" and "Squid Baby," he is strong enough to lift the entire road. In many video games, such as Battle for Bikini Bottom, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie video game, and SpongeBob's Atlantis SquarePantis, his special ability is to pick up and throw heavy objects and even his friends. Also, in "Patrick-Man!," he throws really heavy objects with ease, and in "The Play's the Thing," he is shown to throw an anchor with ease. However, in "Krusty Krushers," he cannot even tear a piece of paper apart and then gets a paper cut. In "Sandy's Nutty Nieces," Patrick was able to beat all three of Sandy's nieces at once in an arm-wrestling match. It may be possible that Patrick doesn't know his own strength at times, which is probably due to his stupidity.
    Sandy's Nutty Nieces 179

    Patrick beats Sandy's three nieces all at once.

  • Survival skills: In "To Save a Squirrel," he and SpongeBob nearly eat each other to survive. He also made earmuffs out of his own belly button lint so they could play without Sandy harassing them in "Survival of the Idiots." He also made warm clothing out of her fur.


  • Low IQ: One of Patrick's biggest weaknesses is his low IQ, as his stupidity tends to cloud his judgment and hinder him from doing anything right, even when attempting to commit evil acts.
  • Distraction: Patrick tends to get distracted frequently, in some cases, by something that he enjoys like ice cream. A notable example would be when he supposedly uses his powers as Mr. Superawesomeness to summon ice cream to use as a weapon, but his love for ice cream causes him to eat the ice cream instead.
  • Laziness: Patrick is very lazy and usually takes poor care of himself and his "house."
  • Stinginess: In "Dumped," he refuses to give Gary back to SpongeBob until the end of the episode. In "The Secret Box," he even refuses to let SpongeBob see his secret from inside the box. In "Yours, Mine and Mine," he refuses to let SpongeBob share toys with him.
  • Camera: In the episode "Tentacle-Vision," Patrick keeps focusing the camera on the wrong thing. In the episode "Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy VI: The Motion Picture," he forgets to take the lid off of the camera. He even gets Cheese Fizz on the camera in the episode "A SquarePants Family Vacation."


Main article: Patrick Star's house
Patrick's house

Patrick's house.

Patrick lives under a rock on 120 Conch Street, two doors down from SpongeBob, right next to Squidward, and 400-yards away from the Krusty Krab. His ID licenses show his address, one from "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III" and another from "Driven to Tears." The home's exterior is featureless, apart from a small, yellow weather vane, which has fallen off on numerous occasions. In some episodes, the rock has nothing under it, while in others, his house has an interior, like in "Patrick's Staycation," "The Donut of Shame," "No Nose Knows," and other episodes. As shown in "I'm with Stupid," he makes his own furniture but he is too lazy to make it sometimes, explaining the different states of his house.

Rise and Shine 074

One of the insides of Patrick's house.

Sometimes, Patrick sleeps on the ceiling of his rock, although far more often he sleeps in a regular bed. Patrick spends much of his day sleeping under his rock. There are many inconsistencies in the depictions of his house due to the nature of the cartoon and utility treatment of backgrounds: In one episode, his house's depiction is nothing but a bed and a chest of drawers, yet in others, he appears to have a kitchen and a living room. In addition, certain episodes tend to depict the surface below the rock to be completely flat, while in others there is a considerable amount of depth below it. Patrick claims to have built the house himself. In "New Fish in Town," he puts his front yard up for rent. In some episodes, particularly the pre-movie seasons, he only has a TV and a chair in his house.

As Nickelodeon said of Patrick's house in a commercial bumper: "What's really beneath this famous rock? The home of Patrick Star. While the outside never changes, a closer look inside reveals that Patrick's house is never set in stone. Sometimes, there's just sand. Other times, there's a small den. Occasionally, there's a large master bedroom. And there's the Multi-Room Complex featuring an eat-in kitchen, arched doorways, and a hi-def TV. Rock on!"

On Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years, Patrick lives in the Dinghy cabin, sleeping in a bunk bed with SpongeBob and sharing his cabin with Squidward and Sandy. On The Patrick Star Show, Patrick lives with his parents in a teapot-shaped house. His room is styled after a TV set and is where he performs his show.

Herb and Margie are Patrick's parents, who appear in the episode "I'm with Stupid." They go to visit Patrick for Starfish Day. They later make a cameo on a family tree in "Rule of Dumb." Their second in-person appearance is in, "Patrick's Tantrum," in which Patrick recalls that his parents would ring a bell when it was time for him to bathe. The sound of a bell begins sending him into uncontrollable fits of anger. Herb and Margie reappear at the end of the episode and reveal that Patrick remembered wrong, and they actually squeaked a rubber duck instead, the sound of which still sets Patrick off.

Cecil and Patrick are traditionally seeing doing traditional father-son activities like camping. Cecil has a variety of jobs that he is unable to hold down, and is very similar to his son.

Bunny has a loving, yet slightly overbearing personality. She is often seen performing household chores, cooking meals, and has a day job as a prison greeter.

Squidina Star[]

GrandPat Star[]

Stair Wars 035

GrandPat arguing with Patrick.

Main article: GrandPat Star

Patrick's grandfather, GrandPat, is a major character on The Patrick Star Show. GrandPat is known for his preference of older times, with his long, detailed history being a running gag on the show. Unlike the rest of the family, GrandPat is often frustrated with Patrick's stupidity and prefers to keep to himself.


Patrick is usually unemployed but has held a number of short-lived jobs throughout the series:

Elastic Waistband Model Pose

The Elastic Waistband.



Mr. Superawesomess


An alternate Patrick exists in the universe seen in the shorts "What if SpongeBob was Gone." Without SpongeBob, he cannot jellyfish properly.

Bearded Patrick[]

Another alternate Patrick existed in the timeline where the Krabby Patty secret formula was never returned to Bikini Bottom after being stolen by Burger Beard. This caused Patrick to rapidly age and grow a long beard. He encountered SpongeBob and Plankton when their time machine sent them 4 days into the future, where he was sitting on the sand-covered ruins of the Krusty Krab. He said that unlike everyone else; he still hadn't given up on SpongeBob because he wasn't very smart. He waved goodbye to them after they were horrified by the outcome.



The SpongeBob Movie Sponge Out of Water 054

SpongeBob and Patrick.

SpongeBob and Patrick have a very loyal relationship. They have been best friends ever since they were born.[54] They have spent a large majority of their life together and are very close to one another. Patrick cares about SpongeBob very much as shown in a multitude of episodes. He often tries to give SpongeBob the best advice he has even if it's very illogical. He also is shown to go to great lengths for SpongeBob such as trying to make SpongeBob his "trophy" just so that he and SpongeBob could be together again. He also shows great sorrow when not around SpongeBob, which he has mentioned frequently. He even followed SpongeBob to the bitter end on their journey to Shell City. Though he has been on bad terms with SpongeBob many times throughout the series, they always come back together as best friends.


Idiot Box 027

Patrick, along with SpongeBob, often annoys Squidward, although he thinks he is one of his best friends, Squidward doesn't reciprocate the "friendship." Unlike SpongeBob, Patrick has actually noticed that Squidward didn't like them but was incorrectly assured by SpongeBob they were his friends. Squidward, for the most part, thinks Patrick is annoying and dumb, even worse than SpongeBob. He has sometimes gotten along with Squidward though, such as "Naughty Nautical Neighbors" and "Band Geeks," although they only last for short amounts of time as Squidward regularly shows his contempt for Patrick or the latter gains the sense to be annoyed with Squidward like in "Wishing You Well." Despite that, Squidward is actually Patrick's best friend after SpongeBob as he defended Patrick as shown when he quickly stopped Mr. Krabs from scamming a naive Patrick of his ice cream coupon in "Patrick's Coupon."

Sandy Cheeks[]

Suds 148

Sandy mad at Patrick.

Patrick and Sandy are close friends, despite the big difference in their personalities. Although Sandy has numerously been annoyed by Patrick's utter stupidity and on occasion has threatened to (as well as has) attack Patrick as shown in "Texas," "Band Geeks," and "Survival of the Idiots," and Patrick tends to showcase a mean-streak towards her as seen in "Suds" and "Patrick SmartPants," the two usually get along very well.

Mr. Krabs[]

Pat No Pay 070

His relationship with Mr. Krabs is a complex one, for the most part, Mr. Krabs thinks Patrick is too dumb to be bothered with, although he sometimes takes him as an employee and occasionally acts as a father figure toward him, as seen in "Sailor Mouth" and "Hooky." Usually, when Patrick acts as an employee for Mr. Krabs, it doesn't end well, like in "Pat No Pay" where he failed all of the jobs and shredded Mr. Krabs money in the trash compacter leading it and the Krusty Krab to explode, or "Restraining SpongeBob" when he was so much worse than SpongeBob as a middleman, Squidward actually replaced SpongeBob with Patrick on the restraining order.


Chum Bucket Supreme 128

Patrick and Plankton have only interacted a few times, but the times they do interact Plankton often despises his idiocy. In the episode "Chum Bucket Supreme," Patrick helps Plankton get customers by creating a slogan. In the episode "Bucket Sweet Bucket," Patrick, along with SpongeBob, attempts to help Plankton renovate the Chum Bucket.

Mrs. Puff[]

Patrick and Mrs. Puff barely interact, but when they do, Patrick often shows a dislike for her. In the episode "New Student Starfish," he calls her "a big fat meanie." In the episode "Patrick-Man!," he gets her arrested because he thought she was trying to break into someone's car.


Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III 095

That's what makes him and Gary 1/16 amoeba.
