Creation and Development
Barnacle Bill was originally something of a prototype of Barnacle Boy. He was created to be Mermaid Man's friend who was a sailor.
His name was later used in "Party Pooper Pants" as one of the singers that Patchy mentions that Potty could have brought to his party.
- Barnacle Bill's role in SpongeBob Comics #55 and #56 is an obvious reference to the popular cartoon character Popeye.
- As shown in SpongeBob Comics No. 56, he suffers from brain damage due to woodworms eating his wooden brain.
