Location

120 Conch Street is the address of Patrick Star's house. It first appears in the pilot episode "Help Wanted."

Description

The house is a large brown rock with a tan arrow-shaped weather vane on top. Like a door, the rock has hinges to open and close.

The interior of Patrick's house is inconsistent, varying from episode to episode.

In early episodes of the series, Patrick had nothing in it except a gray TV and a green chair with a lamp beside it. Later on, he has everything made out of sand.

Patrick also is known to pick up or carry the entire rock. It also has a backyard that is rarely shown. The front yard has a long black path connecting the front of the rock and Conch Street. Patrick has one large room in his house that he changes according to the time of the day.

In the episode "Home Sweet Pineapple," Patrick reveals that his house is extremely easy to make and he built it all by himself.

In the "Truth or Square TV Guide," a comic reveals that Patrick's house was once his small pet rock who grew up to be a large rock and he puts an arrow on it, but the wooden arrow broke and fell. Patrick's house is usually pinkish-brown or very dark brown. Patrick is not good at making a house, so this is why his house is just a rock, but Patrick did manage to build the rooms and put his stuff in it.

It is revealed that Patrick's parents kicked him out and got rid of him, so he had to make his own house.[1]

In the episode "The Card," Patrick is revealed to have a landlord who constantly changes the lock on him.

In the episode "I'm with Stupid," it is revealed that Patrick's house has two rooms, including the kitchen. Sometimes there is also a bathroom in the house, as seen in "The Donut of Shame."

In the episode "The Pink Purloiner," the house is revealed to have a staircase.

In the episode "Growth Spout," he is revealed to own a sand refrigerator full of fake sand food items in his kitchen.

In the episode "Shell Games," it is revealed that Patrick's house is a shell that belongs to a sea turtle named Tony. Tony has been asleep for over 30 years and his shell slowly became covered in the substance, giving it a rock-like appearance.

Trivia

  • Patrick's rock in some episodes has one room and in others, it has a lot of rooms, a stairway, and even a basement. However, in other episodes, under Patrick's rock is simply the flat ground.
  • Running gags:
    • The weather vane falling off the house in multiple episodes.
    • Another running gag, that was mainly used in season 1, is that while lying on it, Patrick falls off his rock upon opening it every time.
  • In "The Donut of Shame," Patrick repeatedly forgets his house does not have an attic.
  • In one of the theme songs in "Truth or Square," Patrick is described as "living like a barnacle." This references how barnacles often live on hard surfaces like rocks.
  • Patrick sleeping on the bottom of his house is a parody of the idiom "living under a rock," meaning one does not understand what is around them.
  • Patrick's pet Rocky in "The Great Snail Race" is similar to his house.
  • Almost like the inside of Patrick's house in the show, the LEGO version has a chair and a TV, the only exception being it has a table with a red cup on it.

Shell Games 028.png

  • "Shell Games " reveals Patrick's rock house is actually the shell of a sea turtle who overslept, but Tony was never seen in the entire series until that episode.
    • It was also shown in that episode that the shell was covered with crud.
