Cletus Junior is a character who only appears in the episode "Trenchbillies." He is the primary villain of the episode.


He is a trench billy with purple skin who has long brown hair, light yellow eyes with no pupils, a long brown mustache, and a southern drawl. He wears a torn, light green shirt with patches, torn brown pants, and a torn hat with a patch as well. He is seen carrying a pitchfork at certain times.

Role in episode

He has suspicions about SpongeBob, Patrick, and Mr. Krabs. He loves to fight crime, with his clownfish nephew, Jordan Klein. He is one of the best hillbillies of the clan. He really likes Krabby Patties as well.


  • There's another hillbilly named "Cletus" that can be seen as a character on The Simpsons which may be a possible reference.
  • Since it's too dark to see anything deep in the sea, animals who live there are blind, some having their eyes covered with a layer of skin. Cletus and his skin display this trait.
  • In the episode "SpongeBob's Last Stand," it is revealed that Patrick's great uncle's name is also Cletus, which could mean they are related, but more than likely, probably not.
