List of characters

Marty is Patrick's fake father. He appears in the episode "I'm with Stupid."


Marty appears in "I'm With Stupid." Marty is married to Janet and comes to Patrick's house for Annual Starfish Day. He is Patrick's fake father. Like Janet, who resembles Marge Simpson, Marty looks like Homer Simpson. He has bushy eyebrows and wears a gray tank top, with blue shorts. He is a darker shade of pink than most other starfish in the series.


He only appeared in "I'm With Stupid," where SpongeBob pretends to be dumb for Patrick's fake parents. He is not quite smart himself though.

Even though SpongeBob revealed the truth about Patrick, Marty and Janet still didn't believe Patrick was dumb (being dumb, themselves) and started laughing at SpongeBob, who ran out of the house in fury. When Janet and Marty reveal their names, Patrick gasps and demands to know who they are.

Before Patrick can do something, Squidward arrives with another starfish couple, who reveal themselves to be Patrick's real parents. Janet and Marty realize they don't have a son and leave.
