Potty the Parrot is Patchy the Pirate's pet parrot and the co-host of SpongeBob SquarePants. A crudely-designed marionette with very obvious strings, Potty is obnoxious and normally annoys Patchy.

Despite being labeled as Patchy's friend, Potty is a frequent pest, often antagonizing Patchy in the show's live-action segments, although they usually make up by the end of the episode. For instance, in "Shanghaied," Potty shoots Patchy out of a cannon. In "Friend or Foe," Patchy and Potty get into a fight that temporarily ends their friendship, which Patchy compares to how Plankton and Mr. Krabs became enemies.

Potty is often comedically damaged and/or destroyed on multiple occasions, always making an offscreen recovery between shots. For instance, in "Christmas Who?," Potty suffers from falling to the ground twice, once pulling Potty's off-screen puppeteer down as well. Potty also breaks into two pieces after eating too much cookie dough, only to recover shortly after.

The character was originally portrayed by series creator, the late Stephen Hillenburg until 2004, after which Paul Tibbitt took over the role. As of 2017, Potty is now voiced by Doug Lawrence.
