Oh...who lives in a pineapple under the
sea?...SpongeBob SquarePants! Absorbent and porous and yellow is
he...SpongeBob is a sweet, generous, friendly, trusting good guy. His
buck-toothed grin and tremendously expressive face and body, along with his
pure and good nature make him completely loveable. SpongeBob's
innocent and good intentions never let him do anything purposely wrong or
harm anyone. His boss Mr. Krabs & next door neighbor Squidward seem to
be the brunt of his misadventures. He is the fry cook at the Krusty
Krab working alongside Squidward. His free time is spent with his
buddy Patrick, his friend Sandy and his pet snail Gary. He especially
enjoys catching jelly fish at jellyfish fields. When his pineapple
home is destroyed by nematodes, a single SpongeBob tear magically recreates
his home from a tiny seed in just a few seconds. No wonder we love
Patrick is SpongeBob's closet friend, a plump, pink well meaning but
clueless starfish. Patrick lives under a rock 2 doors down from
SpongeBob. Patrick is quite gullible and shares in many of SpongeBob's
adventures. His loyalty and friendship to SpongeBob is unequaled and a
better friend than Patrick can't be found. SpongeBob's sidekick and
buddy = Patrick.
Sandy is a great friend of SpongeBob. She is a ground squirrel from
Texas who lives in a Tree Dome under the sea, which is complete with
a Texas size tree, grass and picnic table. Sandy is good at everything
she does, from karate to weight lifting to throwing anchors. She has
quite a competitive nature and an occasional bout of homesickness doesn't
keep her down. Sandy is also prone to brief bad moods - especially
when she does not get enough sleep. Outside her dome she wears an
air-filled suit and gets around quite well with the other residents of
Gary is SpongeBob's loyal pet snail who meows like a cat. Gary may
actually be much more intelligent than your ordinary garden variety snail
(or was that just a dream?). When he is properly fed and has enough
snail plasma, Gary can be quite playful. Gary is the cuddliest when
you have a cookie in your pocket. Gary is a natural musician with an
amazing sense of rhythm - he keeps a swarm of wild dancing jelly fish
bouncing to the beat.
Squidward lives next door to SpongeBob and plays a "mean" clarinet. He is
the cashier at the Krusty Krab Restaurant. SpongeBob and Patrick always
encourage Squidward to participate in their games, but this only annoys him.
While seemingly the eternal pessimist, he tries to have fun but does not
ever get the hang of it. When under extreme pressure, he's admitted to
liking SpongeBob! Squidward is really a good guy with a good heart,
despite what he apparently wants us to believe.
Mr. Krabs is
SpongeBob's boss and the owner of the Krusty Krab. Mr. Krabs loves
money, money, money and is glad to have the hard working, low pay, Krabby
Patty flipping SpongeBob as the "Employee of the
Month" (every month)! While he sometimes doesn't show it, he
really loves the lad.
Mr. Krabs has a daughter Pearl (a whale) and regularly participates in
SpongeBob's misadventures, especially when it comes to treasure and work
live in Jellyfish field. They playfully allow themselves to be caught
(jelly fishing) by SpongeBob and Patrick while other times they playfully
sting them. They are in tune with nature and have great rhythm.
They are a constant presence
in Bikini Bottom. They also allow SpongeBob to squirt out jelly
fish jelly which is especially tasty. While most others dare not
trespass in Jellyfish Fields, SpongeBob loves them all.
Plankton is the owner of Chum Bucket Restaurant, across the road from
the Krusty Krab. Plankton is a good natured bad-guy, trying to steal the
Krabby Patty recipe from Mr. Krabs. He is also interested in world
domination. Through various devices and dastardly means, he tries to
get the Krabby Patty recipe (he even tried being nice!), but to no avail,
SpongeBob triumphs and the secret recipe is safe.
Bikini Bottom is the magical place under the sea where this cast of friends
live. There is a beach, a town, an adult driving school, a senior home
(with super heroes) and all the other common places and beings you'd find in
your own home town. This is the place we all like to be Monday through
Friday @ 5 PM/4c and 8 PM /7c AND Saturdays and Sundays @ 10 AM/9c!
