Pecos Patrick was a paternal ancestor of Patrick Star and Gary the Snail and SpongeBuck SquarePants' friend. He first appears in the episode "Pest of the West." Pecos is always there for SpongeBuck and the two become best friends. He also loved to Spurskate, the latest Bikini Gulch craze.

Pecos, like his current descendant, did not like to give up, and never did give up, telling SpongeBuck to go save the town.


Pecos Patrick is a sea star. He is very similar to Patrick but he wears western style light blue overalls with a beige, long sleeve shirt, and has a single tooth to the side. He also sports a brown cowboy hat on the top of his pointed head. His complexion is pink, much like his descendant.


Pecos is much like his descendant, Patrick Star. He is not the brightest and is constantly causing his friend, SpongeBuck SquarePants, into getting himself into dire or even fatal situations.

However, despite his neurological deficiency, he still has a never-say-die attitude and approaches situations with caution and never likes to give up.
