Jump to: navigation, search
Gender: Male
Species: Puppet parrot
Color: Green
Friends: Patchy the Pirate
Voice by: Stephen Hillenburg (2000-2004), Paul Tibbitt (2005-2012), Doug Lawrence (2017-present)

Potty the Parrot is a Patchy the Pirate's puppet friend. Potty is a little argumentative and often makes fun of Patchy. The viewers are constantly reminded that Potty is a puppet with very obvious strings and big googly eyes.

From 2000 to 2004, Potty was voiced by the creator of SpongeBob himself, Stephen Hillenburg. After Hillenburg left the show, Paul Tibbitt took over the role. Since Tibbitt also left the show, Doug Lawrence has taken over as Potty's third voice.

Potty is usually torturing Patchy. Patchy constantly is annoyed by Potty, though Potty has all the good ideas. Potty would usually say "Squawk!" which bothers Patchy, almost as if Patchy didn't know it was a common noise made by parrots.

[edit] Running Gag

There have been a few instances where the viewer needs to be reminded that Potty is a puppet. Mysteriously, Potty is usually back to normal in only a few minutes. A few of these reminders are seen below:

  • In "Christmas Who?," Patchy the pirate cuts the strings that Potty is attached to.
  • In that same episode, Patchy also pulls on the strings, causing what seems to be Potty's puppeteer falling from the ceiling.
  • Again, in the same episode, Potty eats so much cookie dough. The bird's entire body fell from the weight, leaving just a head.
  • Again, in the same episode, at the end, when Patchy claims there is a mistletoe, Potty tries to kiss Patchy.
  • In the end of special segment entitled "Patchy's Pick," Potty is blown up by dynamite.
  • In every Potty appearance, you can clearly see the puppet strings above the bird.
  • In Ugh, Potty keeps arguing with Patchy that the future is better than the past by even building a robot named X-29488 & wearing futuristic metal equipment.
