If you were looking for the article about the episode, then see Wormy.
Wormy was a monarch caterpillar who was later turned into a monarch butterfly in the episode "Wormy."
He was a light green caterpillar that has black eyes, and white spots.
He is dark orange, with black stripes and black on the outermost parts of his wings, portraying a monarch butterfly.
At some point, Sandy bought or found him in Texas. Sometime later, she took Wormy to her home in Bikini Bottom.
He later turned into a butterfly.
When SpongeBob and Patrick were pet sitting for Sandy, they played games such as hide-and-seek and tag. But over night, Wormy metamorphosed into a butterfly and scared everyone in Bikini Bottom because they've never seen a butterfly before.
His close up of him in his butterfly form was actually a closeup of a buzzing horsefly.
During the news bulletin about the "monster," the live-action Monarch butterfly stock footage depicts a female butterfly (hence the thicker wing veins than the male), suggesting Wormy may have actually been female.
"Wormy" was banned in some countries because of Wormy's disturbing close-up shots.
