|List of characters|
Roger was a chicken egg (later a chick) featured in the episode "New Student Starfish." He is the boating school's class science project. In order for Roger to live, he needs a working lightbulb hanging above him. Roger is held in a glass box with a light bulb hanging above him. There is speculation that Roger might not be a "good" thing, because after SpongeBob loses his Good Noodle Star he calls himself a Bad Egg. At the end of the episode, Roger's egg hatches into a chick. The chick then says "What did I miss?" Unlike Sandy, the chick can talk underwater, without a helmet.
According to SpongeBob, the purpose of Roger is to teach the students the meaning of life. Roger's shell represents the fragile line between life and death when behind the wheel of a boat. The light bulb on top of Roger represents knowledge; without its energy Roger would die, (and without knowledge a driver can die too). His only quote is "Hey, what'd I miss?!"He is footage of a real chick posted in with the animation.
- Despite being a real life bird, he is somehow able to breathe underwater.
- The bird is voiced by Bill Fagerbakke, who also voices Patrick.
