Character

Potty the Parrot is Patchy the Pirate's pet parrot, whose name is a parody of the popular parrot saying "Polly wanna cracker." Potty is a crudely designed marionette with very obvious strings. Potty is obnoxious and normally annoys Patchy. Potty first appears in the episode "Christmas Who?"

Potty was voiced by Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of SpongeBob SquarePants, until 2004. Former showrunner Paul Tibbitt took over the role from seasons 4 to 8. Since season 10, the character has been voiced by Doug Lawrence.

Description

Character concept

Potty is a marionette parrot character in the series and the co-host of Patchy the Pirate. Potty appears in every episode that features Patchy.

Rivalry with Patchy

Despite being labeled as Patchy's friend, Potty is a frequent pest to Patchy, and is often an antagonist in his live-action segments, although they usually make up by the end of the episode.

In "Shanghaied," Potty shoots Patchy out of a cannon.

In "Ugh," Potty ruins Patchy's caveman show by becoming a futuristic cyborg and bringing in a robot. At the end of the show, Potty gives Patchy a pet T. rex as an "apology present."

In "Friend or Foe," Patchy and Potty get into a fight while working as fry cooks at The Poop Deck, temporarily ending their friendship, which makes Patchy upset. Patchy compares this to how Plankton and Mr. Krabs became enemies, starting the main story of the episode.

In "It's a SpongeBob Christmas!," Patchy finds Santa's workshop, but it turns out to be a polar bear's cave, while Potty manages to find the real Santa's workshop and laughs at Patchy, along with Santa.

In "Feral Friends," Potty bites Patchy's hand after agreeing to forgive him.

Destruction

Potty has been damaged and/or destroyed on multiple occasions, but always returns in the next scene or episode.

In "Christmas Who?," Patchy cuts the strings that Potty is attached to, causing the puppet to fall to the ground. Later in that same episode, Patchy pulls on the strings, causing what seems to be a cast member to fall from the ceiling. Again in the same episode, Potty eats too much cookie dough and breaks apart from the weight, leaving only Potty's head intact.

At the end of the "Patchy's Pick" segment from "Shanghaied," Potty is blown up by dynamite.

Trivia

  • In the Croatian dub, Potty's name is Pero, which translates to "feather" and is a common name for a bird in Croatia.
  • Potty's gender is unknown. Potty lays an egg in "The Sponge Who Could Fly," which only female parrots can do, and is referred to as a female in two books. However, Patchy has also said "his" when referring to Potty in "Friend or Foe." When asked about Potty's gender, Vincent Waller said: "It is only a puppet, with no tell tale signs of gender."[1]
  • In 2015, Vincent Waller stated there were no plans of making Stephen Hillenburg voice Potty again.[7][8]
