Patrick Star is a sea star who is SpongeBob’s best friend and neighbor. He lives under a rock and favors colorful trunks (mainly green and violet) as his attire. Patrick is not the brightest sea star in the ocean, though he did attend community college, what he studied is never revealed. His attention span has been clocked at .02 seconds. His favorite activities include sleeping, catching jellyfish, napping, blowing bubbles, snoozing and eating ice cream. He worked at the Krusty Krab doing odd jobs until he won an award (which the only reason he took the job). As SpongeBob's closest pal, Patrick is always offering his advice and encouragement as they embark on various adventures, which usually get them both in trouble, though things seem to always work out in the end. But, for better or worse, Patrick will always be SpongeBob's loyal buddy.
