The seaweed mustaches are blades of seaweed made to look like mustaches. Princess Mindy gives them to SpongeBob and Patrick in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie.


They are two pairs of wavy green seaweed blades. Mindy puts them above SpongeBob and Patrick's lips so that they look like facial hair.

Role in series

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie

When SpongeBob and Patrick keep whining over how they are babies, Mindy decides to make them "men" by putting seaweed mustaches on them. When they realize they have mustaches, SpongeBob and Patrick feel empowered and jump into the trench.

They think that they are invincible now that they have manly mustaches, so they sing a song about becoming real men. However, Dennis appears on the other side and rips off their mustaches and tells them that they were not real and that he thought they still had salad stuck to their lips from lunchtime.

Are We There Yet?

SpongeBob and Patrick show photos of their seaweed mustaches as part of a presentation at the Krusty Krab. SpongeBob recalls, "With the power of our manly mustaches, we were unstoppable!"

Framed photo of the mustaches

In the deleted scene "Thank Gosh It's Monday," the seaweed mustaches appear in a photo that hangs on the wall of SpongeBob's house. The photo shows them on the sandy ground. Although the mustaches do not appear in the final version of the film, the deleted scene was used in advertisements and included on Music from The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water album and as a bonus feature on the film's Blu-Ray disc.


  • In an early draft of the film, the seaweed mustaches were planned to be real mustaches made of hair. This can be seen in concept artwork.
