    Patrick Star

    Who wouldn't recognize this pink, elongated and drowsy-looking starfish as he shows up in every SpongeBob SquarePants episode? Patrick Star is the robin to SpongeBob's batman and is his ever-present companion who proves his worth every time SpongeBob needs a fix or two, aside from being able to down tons of Krabby Patties all at once, of course. Though he has poor wits and decision-making, he sure makes up for it by being another comic relief to an already overly-hilarious cartoon series.

    SpongeBob SquarePants

    SpongeBob SquarePants himself has long been the poster boy for quirkiness and love for fun in cartoons. Everyone knows about his bizarre yet entertaining laugh as well as his oddly-shaped pineapple house under the depths of Bikini Bottom. Actually, Spongebob is a sea sponge that was actually made to look like a real dishwashing sponge, making this character look so cute and cartoony. He is a loyal kid who continues to work at The Krusty Krab restaurant despite many misadventures and mishaps.

    Eugene H. Krabs

    Mr. Eugene Krabs or simply 'Mr. Krabs' is not someone every SpongeBob fan would like because of his bossiness and money-driven actions. He may have once said that 'money that makes the world go round, boy!' because he sure loves the dough. But, there is no denying that he brings another element to the adventures of SpongeBob. Being an adult character who also happens to be SpongeBob's boss as well as the owner of The Krusty Krab, he is indeed someone that acts immature a lot of times but that's part of his charm as a money-hungry and life-savvy crab businessman.

    Squidward Tentacles

    You may think that he is often grumpy and lazy, but Squidward is definitely one interesting character that Stephen Hillenburg has introduced. Yes, he is indeed apathetic towards his cashier job and he is often ill-tempered but he still is known for teaming up with SpongeBob as the crew-duo that works for The Krusty Krab under Mr. Krab's tutelage himself. Squidward is an anthropomorphic octopus who lives in a moai between SpongeBob and Patrick Star's houses but it sure doesn't mean he likes both his neighbors.

    This little green character may be lacking in size but he sure makes up for it with lots of determination and evil plots. Plankton is the owner of the Chum Bucket and is also the main antagonist of the show. He is obsessed with rivaling Mr. Krabs' Krabby Patty formula by, yes you guessed it right, by stealing the original formula itself from The Krusty Krab. With his numerous ploys and schemes to steal the secret recipe, he has done all sorts of tricks and treacheries, to the point of befriending SpongeBob, only to end up empty-handed each time.
