Uncle Sherman "Sherm" SquarePants is SpongeBob's uncle and Cousin Stanley S. SquarePants's father. He is a famous member of the SquarePants family for he can put an entire watermelon inside his nostril. He was mentioned in the episodes Krab Borg, Stanley S. SquarePants and Pest of the West. His picture can be seen in Pest of the West, and is also mentioned in the video game Nicktoons: Battle for Volcano Island.
Sherm is shaped as a kitchen sponge like SpongeBob, although he has many minor differences., He has brown eyes, bigger nose, a red bow-tie and lots of teeth. His pants are a bit wrinkled, his belt has a silver belt buckle and he has bits of hair on his arm. He is only seen in a photo, not seen physically.
- Uncle Sherm sent a letter to SpongeBob in Stanley S. Squarepants. He probably didn't like having Stanley with him (Problaby due to Stanley destroying his stuff) since he wrote "I'm Free!" at the bottom of the letter.
- He was first mentioned in Krab Borg, but his first appearance was Pest of the West.
- When first mentioned in Krab Borg, the name Sherm was actually an Easter Egg. One of the producers of the show has the name Sherm Cohen.
- The watermelon in the picture has to be really tiny because sherm is probably 4 inches tall.
- Uncle Sherm set a record for stuffing a watermelon up his nose. SpongeBob mentioned this in Pest of the West.
- He was going to have a main role in a cancelled episode "Uncle Sherm's Visit", but was replaced with the episode The Gift of Gum.
