List of characters

Santa Claus is a character that appears in the episodes "Christmas Who?" and "It's a SpongeBob Christmas!"

In "Christmas Who?," Santa gives Squidward a letter for his help to Bikini Bottomites.

In "It's a SpongeBob Christmas!," Santa comes to Bikini Bottom with the intention to dish out coal to everyone, and give the Krabby Patty Secret Formula to Plankton seeing as he appeared to be "good."


  • In "Wishing You Well," SpongeBob said that claustrophobic meant "afraid of Santa Claus." It actually means "fear of tight spaces."
  • He is a lot crazier in "Christmas Who?," than in "It's a SpongeBob Christmas!"
  • The Santa Claus character is based off of the real life legendary and folkloric figure of the same name.
  • Some fans have criticized the stop-motion Santa in "It's a SpongeBob Christmas!" due to fact that he looks like pig. The animators responded to this comment about their interpretation of Santa Claus, saying "We definitely wanted to keep an element of strangeness, almost scary aspects in the story." Caballero explained that the idea of making Santa Claus look tired and strange came when they saw a drawing of him by Marc Ceccarelli or Luke Brookshier. Caballero said, "We thought that was a great idea. So we came up with our own little back story where Bikini Bottom is the last stop for Santa. He's tired, he wants to get home, take his shoes off ... We honed in on the old descriptions of Santa being a jolly old elf. We pictured him as humanoid, but not necessarily directly human." [1]
