Patchy the Pirate is a supporting character on SpongeBob SquarePants. He is the live-action host of the series, played by Tom Kenny. He is the most prominent supporting character on the show, with more screen time, lines, and major roles than any other non-main character.

He is the president of the SpongeBob SquarePants Fan Club and he is also SpongeBob’s number one fan. Unlike most SpongeBob characters, Patchy is human, and is played by Tom Kenny. Patchy lives in an unnamed suburb in Encino, California with his pet parrot, Potty. Patchy is mostly featured during special episodes, such as The Sponge Who Could Fly and Christmas Who?. He really loves SpongeBob and was furious when he thought the lost episode of SpongeBob was nothing but SpongeBob going through "a bunch of cheap walk cycles", which resulted in a tantrum. He thinks the past is cooler than the future, and had a whole argument about it with Potty in the episode Ugh. It is unknown if he has ever been a real pirate and not just a guy living in a normal neighborhood. He also has an elderly neighbor named Mrs. Johnson who always gives out cookies. It is shown in the episode Friend or Foe? when he was upset at Potty, that he knew Potty ever since he was a baby, and Potty was just an egg.


[edit] Appearance

Patchy with his hook hand.

Patchy wears a black pirate hat with a skull and crossbones on it, a red and white bandana, an eye patch (hence the name "Patchy"), a long curly black beard, a purple robe, a white shirt, a hook on his hand, a peg leg for one leg, and black boots for the other leg. It appears to be missing some flesh. In some episodes he has a peg leg, and in others he has two boots. He also wore a black sash in seasons 2 and 3, and no sash in seasons 4 onward. Sometimes Potty teases at Patchy for losing his leg, arm, eye, and the SpongeBob episode The Sponge Who Could Fly. He also appears on the Nickelodeon's Big Time Rush special "Big Time Beach Party" where he helps Logan and Carlos find a lost family treasure of his so they can buy a beach house. His eyepatch, blacked out tooth, hook, and pegleg switch and his lip syncing is poor. He also speaks with a slight lateral lisp.

[edit] Restaurant Job

In the episode Friend or Foe?, Patchy worked at a restaurant called "The Poop Deck", along with Potty. His boss was a cranky old pirate named Mr. Pirateson. All his food tasted horrible, so Patchy was fired and replaced by a gorilla. He wanted to take the job to make hamburgers just like SpongeBob SquarePants, our hero. At one point, Mr. Pirateson was mad at him for thinking about his wrong favorite choice of water. Patchy's famous Patties are called "Buried Treasure", (with a creepy voice) "Walk the Plank" and "The Patchy Patty" which was a Patty with an Eye-patch, a face and a beard. He says "WHAT!? They let a Smelly Hairy Fleabag like that serve food!!?" when he saw that he was replaced by a Gorilla.

[edit] Patchy's House

Main Article: Patchy's House

Patchy's house is a single-story suburban home in Encino. He lives there with Potty and an unnamed mother.

[edit] Personality

Patchy the Pirate is babylike and isn't smart, but somewhat he started the SpongeBob SquarePants Fan Club somehow. At the end of each episode he appears in, he has a really big mess and some sort of huge trouble which makes him look like how he would be able to get out of the really bad situation. Bad things severely happen to Patchy, and he lost his hand, leg, and foot, and eye and the SpongeBob Videotape of the Lost Episode. The reason why The Sponge Who Could Fly is called a lost episode is because it has limited broadcasting on the Nickelodeon channel each year. Patchy has appeared in a grand total of 15 episodes so far. Note that the broadcasting of Atlantis SquarePantis of its first airing and other airings are different. In the first airing of "Atlantis SquarePantis," Patchy does not have a major role in it. But in other airings, after and before the TV commercials of the episode's hour, he is stuck in a boat-like mobile in the middle of no where with no water, and his radio is broken. Often he has tantrums and breaks down into tears when Potty insults him. Because Potty is always right!!! Often he gives invitations to SpongeBob, but SB can't read them! Patchy is very shy but can be ecstatic often at times due to his childlike innocence and pure heart.
