If you were looking for the article about the book, then see SpongeBob RoundPants (book).

SpongeBob RoundPants[1] was the new name temporarily used by SpongeBob SquarePants when he got himself new pants that were round-shaped. He shows them to Mr. Krabs, Patrick, Sandy, Squidward, and many others. SpongeBob thinks that nobody recognized him with the round pants due to Patrick not identifying him as SpongeBob SquarePants.

He appears in the episode "To SquarePants or Not to SquarePants" and the books Mr. FancyPants! and SpongeBob RoundPants.


He has the same appearance as SpongeBob, except he wears round pants that have the same design as his regular pants.

Role in episode

SpongeBob behaves like he is a new employee at the Krusty Krab and asks for Squidward's help. Following Squidward, he starts copying the latter's actions, such as being rude to customers, throwing the trash out to the dumpster, sleeping in the bathroom or at the workstation, and even cooking Krabby Patties like Squidward (burning them). He is gullible, much like his original identity's character.
