Trivia / The Ugly Barnacle

  • 90 percent of the people who heard this story were not helped by it at all.
    • The remaining ten percent were dead.
      • But then again, so was everyone.
  • All-Star Cast: The story was narrated by none other than Patrick Star. No Pun intended, since he is the only narrator.
  • Author Appeal: Patrick lives underwater - that's probably why he chose a barnacle as the ugly character.
  • Breakthrough Hit: This one helped Patrick Star become a Household Name.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • The Ugly Barnacle was scheduled to make a guest appearance in the short story Garfield in: "Along Came a Splut", but cancelled at the 11th hour due to his crew dying because of his ugliness.
    • The Ugly Barnacle was going to be a shrimp, but Patrick changed it at the risk of offending any sea creatures.
  • Writing by the Seat of Your Pants: Patrick literally came up with the story on the spot, simply so he could help SpongeBob. Too bad it didn't help at all.
