Patrick Star is an overweight pink sea star who lives under a rock and is SpongeBob's best friend. Patrick is not very smart, however he still offers SpongeBob advice and encourages dangerous and/or foolish activities which often get the two into trouble. Patrick's parents, Herb and Margie, are rarely seen in the series, and there is a running gag in the show when Patrick mistakes SpongeBob's parents for his own. He and SpongeBob's pet snail, Gary, are distant relatives.
This is a list of characters from the Nickelodeon animated series SpongeBob SquarePants. The main characters in the show are SpongeBob SquarePants and his pet snail Gary, SpongeBob's friends Patrick, Squidward and Sandy, and two restaurateur rivals; Mr. Krabs and Plankton.
Various celebrities have voiced roles in SpongeBob SquarePants. Some play recurring characters such as Ernest Borgnine and Tim Conway voicing the roles of Mermaidman and Barnacle Boy, while others have taken a one off part.
