Sherm[1] SquarePants[2] is the uncle of SpongeBob, Todd, and BlackJack. He is also the son of Grandpa and Grandma SquarePants, the brother of Harold SquarePants and Blue SquarePants, and the father of Stanley S. SquarePants.

Like most of the SquarePants family members, Sherm is square and has pores. He has several buck teeth, pants like SpongeBob, a bow tie, brown eyes and has a watermelon in his nose.

In the episode "Stanley S. SquarePants," Sherm sends his son to SpongeBob's house due to his inability to hold down a job, and that fact that he is irresponsible, and that he ruins everything he touches. Sherm took away several privileges of his adult son, in which Stanley has referenced by telling SpongeBob that his father never allowed him to watch TV, or touch the refrigerator or toilet.


He was born one of at least five or six children of Grandma and Grandpa SquarePants. His siblings are Blue SquarePants, Harold SquarePants, and another brother and a sister, another brother and two sisters, two other brothers and a sister, or three other brothers. His childhood home may have been Grandma SquarePants' House, but this is unconfirmed.

When he became an adult, he married an unknown wife. They had a son named Stanley S. SquarePants.

Sherm apparently never lets Stanley do anything because of Stanley's destructive nature. At some point, he had enough and sent Stanley away to SpongeBob's house to be straightened out. Although it has not been shown, it can be implied that Stanley went home or at least left SpongeBob's house since Stanley hasn't been seen since his debut episode Stanley S. SquarePants.

At some point, Sherm put a watermelon up his nose and got a picture taken of it.


Sherm is mentioned various times in the series in the episodes "Krab Borg" and "Stanley S. SquarePants," but is never seen except briefly in "Pest of the West" when SpongeBob shows a picture of him with a watermelon sticking out of his nose. He was seen in a picture in The Check-Up.

Video Games

Nicktoons: Battle for Volcano Island: SpongeBob mentions his uncle to Danny Phantom while they look for camp.


  • Uncle Sherm may be a reference to Sherm Cohen who was a storyboard supervisor on some of the Seasons 1-4 and all of Season 9 episodes.
