The SquarePants family is a family of sponges who descend from the primitive sponge as well as SpongeGar, who discovered fire along with Patar and Squog. The primitive sponges lived in what was most likely Bikini Bottom. The history of the SquarePants family is unknown until the nineteenth century, when SpongeBuck SquarePants settled in Bikini Gulch, which is modern-day Bikini Bottom.
His descendants still live in Bikini Bottom, the most notable being SpongeBob SquarePants. Somewhere along the SquarePants line between SpongeGar and SpongeBuck, a family member left the place known currently as Bikini Bottom, this was revealed in "Pest of the West," when SpongeBuck came on the train to Dead Eye Gulch.

Grandma SquarePants tends to dote on her grandchild. According to the book Camp SpongeBob, SpongeBob was always sent to his grandma's during the summertime. Grandma SquarePants lovingly treats her grandson like a baby whenever he visits and does stereotypical Grandma-like things for him, such as making gingerbread men, chocolate chip cookies, and homemade sweaters with metaphorical love in every stitch. Unlike SpongeBob, she is round in shape and brownish, much like an actual sea sponge. She also appears in the video game Employee of the Month, in which the player can visit her in her house. She's always acting as if Patrick is her actual grandson. She appears again in "BlackJack," "The Abrasive Side," and "Pet Sitter Pat."
Harold SquarePants is SpongeBob's father, the son of Grandma and Grandpa SquarePants, uncle of Stanley, BlackJack, Larry and Todd SquarePants, brother of Sherm and Blue SquarePants, Margaret's husband, a descendant of SpongeBuck, Primitive Sponge, and SpongeGar, and one of SpongeTron's ancestors.

Harold debuted in "Home Sweet Pineapple," where he came to pick up SpongeBob after nematodes ate his pineapple house. In this episode, when SpongeBob is in his parents' car, he says "Good-bye Bikini Bottom!” which indicates that SpongeBob's parents do not live in Bikini Bottom. They later appeared in "Culture Shock" as they watched the Krusty Krab Talent Show, and in "No Free Rides," where Harold SquarePants kissed Mrs. Puff's hand and gave his son a boatmobile for passing his driver's test. In "Driven to Tears" they seem sad that SpongeBob doesn't have his license, saying how "even Patrick has a license." His name was revealed in "BlackJack" when Mrs. SquarePants says "I told you, Harold, that was the fumigator's fault." In "New Digs," they visit SpongeBob while he is living at the Krusty Krab. Harold is voiced by Tom Kenny. Unlike SpongeBob, he looks more like a natural sponge since he has a round head. He also appears in the book Hooray for Dads!.
Margaret SquarePants (née BubbleBottom) is Harold's wife, SpongeBob's mother, daughter-in-law of Grandpa and Grandma SquarePants, sister-in-law of Captain Blue and Sherm, the aunt of Larry, Todd, BlackJack, and Stanley, and one of SpongeTron's ancestors. In the future, she will be a great-grandmother. She has black hair and is dressed in a purple matchbox dress and has a pearl necklace. She debuted in "Home Sweet Pineapple," where she and her husband came to pick up SpongeBob after nematodes ruined his pineapple house. In this episode, when SpongeBob is in his parents' car, he says "Good-bye Bikini Bottom!” which indicates that SpongeBob's parents do not live in Bikini Bottom. They later appeared in "Culture Shock" as they watched the Krusty Krab Talent Show, and in "No Free Rides," where they gave their son a boat mobile for passing his driver's test. In "Driven to Tears" they seem sad that SpongeBob does not have his license, saying how "even Patrick has a license." Margaret is voiced by Sirena Irwin. Unlike SpongeBob, both his parents are more like natural sponges since they have round heads. In "Whelk Attack," it's revealed that her maiden name was BubbleBottom.
Sherman "Sherm" SquarePants is the brother of Harold and Blue, a son of Grandma and Grandpa SquarePants, Stanley's father, the uncle of SpongeBob, BlackJack, Todd, and possibly Larry, a brother-in-law of Margaret, and a descendant of SpongeBuck, Primitive Sponge, and SpongeGar. In the future, he will be a great grand uncle. Sherm was first mentioned in the episode "Krab Borg"; he was also mentioned in "Nicktoons: Battle for Volcano Island." In the episode "Stanley S. SquarePants," Sherm sent his son, Stanley to live with SpongeBob since Sherm was fed up with his clumsiness. He is seen in this photo in "Pest of the West." He can stick a watermelon in his nose, as revealed in the same episode. Also, he is square-shaped like SpongeBob and his son, Stanley.
Blue SquarePants is a son of Grandma and Grandpa SquarePants. He is the brother of Harold and Sherm SquarePants, the uncle of SpongeBob, Blackjack, Todd, Stanley, and possibly Larry, a brother-in-law of Margaret, and a descendant of SpongeBuck, Primitive Sponge, and SpongeGar.

SpongeBob attempts to find Stanley's purpose in life. However, Stanley's clumsy attributes lead him to destroy things. While working at the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob took the blame for Stanley's mistakes.

He appears in the episode "BlackJack," where he is released from prison, and his family holds a party to welcome him back. However, SpongeBob believes that BlackJack had kidnapped his parents until the true nature of the situation was revealed. SpongeBob's father explains to him that BlackJack has learned his lesson and renounced his criminal ways, but SpongeBob is still scared and does not believe that he changed. While he was in prison, BlackJack somehow shrunk to the size of a shoe. He is voiced by John DiMaggio.

In "SB-129," Squidward accidentally travels to early prehistoric times, where he meets early ancestors of SpongeBob and Patrick. This primitive sponge has little in common with his modern counterpart, being a savage and unintelligent creature with no discernible spoken language. He and Primitive Star are seen stinging themselves with a jellyfish, and Squidward teaches them jellyfishing to stop them from torturing themselves, inadvertently inventing the sport in the process. He then sits down to play his clarinet, but the sound angers SpongeBob and Patrick's ancestors, and they begin viciously chasing him until he reaches the time machine.
SpongeGar was a prehistoric ancestor of SpongeBob, SpongeBuck, SpongeTron, BlackJack, Harold, Stanley, Blue, Todd, Sherm, Grandpa SquarePants, and possibly Larry. seen in "Ugh." SpongeGar and Patar are distinct from the Neanderthals seen in "SB-129," more closely resembling their modern day counterparts and having developed a simple language. They, along with Squog inadvertently discover fire, and quickly begin fighting over it.
SpongeBuck SquarePants was the western ancestor of Grandpa SquarePants, Harold, Blue, Sherm, SpongeBob, BlackJack, Todd, and Stanley, and SpongeTron. He appeared in "Pest of the West." SpongeBuck moved to Dead Eye Gulch, where he was seeking a job. He was immediately hired as the sheriff. He stood up to Dead Eye Plankton, a wealthy citizen who owned almost all the land in the town. SpongeBuck defeated him in a western-style stand-off, where he stomped on him. SpongeBuck had saved the town, and in his honor, a statue was built. The statue was put in the center of the town, and, centuries later stood in downtown Bikini Bottom, where it was covered in jellyfish waste. When SpongeBob discovered his descent from SpongeBuck, he cleaned the statue to reveal his ancestor. SpongeBuck's story appears in the book, "Family Histories of Bikini Bottom." SpongeBuck has a tapeworm in his stomach.
SpongeBob's grandson only appears in the episode "The Great Patty Caper," where he was shown 75 years into the future. He heard the story of Great Patty Caper that his Grandfather told him, though entirely ignored his SpongeBob's story by playing a video game and saying, "I beat my high score." He will look just like his grandfather, SpongeBob, but with a red hat, lighter voice, and will wear different clothes. Since SpongeBob is known to be 12-44 in the series, he will be 87-109 at the time of his grandchild's childhood. SpongeBob's grandson will also be the 1st cousin 2x removed of Stanley, Larry, BlackJack, Todd, the great-grandnephew of Blue and Sherm, the great-grandson of Harold and Margaret, the great great grandson of Grandpa and Grandma SquarePants, a descendant of SpongeBuck, Primitive Sponge, and SpongeGar, one of SpongeTron's ancestors.
SpongeTron will be a descendant of SpongeBob, Harold, Margaret, SpongeBuck, SpongeGar, Primitive Sponge, Grandpa SquarePants, and Grandma SquarePants. He will live in the 41st Century. He will look virtually identical to his present-day counterpart, but has various robotic abilities, such as hovering (He will hover by rocket, he might have got it from SpongeBob since he can hover in the episode "Jellyfish Hunter" and "Krusty Towers.") and heat vision. He will be able to change appearance by naming himself SpongeTron (will change with everything on him going square). He will then change back to normal form. He will have 486 clones, each representing a letter of the alphabet, which will have apparently been greatly expanded in the future. He was seen in "SB-129" to help Squidward get to the time machine, but misleads him into the can opener room. His best friend is Patron who has two heads instead of one.
