List of characters

Painty the Pirate, also referred to as Captain, is a painting of a pirate head with a parrot which appears at the beginning of all the episodes, and sings the "SpongeBob SquarePants Theme Song." His painted mouth is replaced by a live-action mouth, giving him the appearance of talking. The real lips in the painting are the lips of Stephen Hillenburg, the show's creator. He also makes appearances in the episodes "Your Shoe's Untied" and "Wet Painters" (although he only appears as an inanimate painting). He has a patch over his left eye, an orange jacket, a skull-and-crossbones hat, and of course a parrot on his left shoulder. He is voiced by Patrick Pinney in most appearances except Truth or Square, in the "rejected" theme songs (Squidward Tentacles, Patrick Seastar, and Eugene Krabs)

Painty doesn't appear in "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie" and it is confirmed that he will make an appearance in "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water."[1]


  • In "Truth or Square?" the original painting of Painty is replaced by a talking fortune teller-like dummy, voiced by Cee-Lo Green.
  • He is often mistaken for Patchy the Pirate due to the similarities in each other's names.
  • He is the only character, besides SpongeBob, to appear in every episode.
