Do All the “SpongeBob” Characters Represent Different Disorders? A TikToker Thinks So…
Are the characters in “SpongeBob SquarePants” just cartoon characters … or do they represent something deeper?
A woman on TikTok suggested that they represent different disorders.
Here’s what she thinks:
SpongeBob himself is ADHD … Patrick is Down syndrome … Squidward is depression … Mr. Krabs is narcissistic personality disorder … and Plankton represents bipolar disorder. Here’s the video.
However, in a similar video, she said the characters represent the Seven Deadly Sins. Although she only listed the same five…
She said that SpongeBob represents Lust … Patrick is Sloth … Squidward is Wrath … Mr. Krabs is Greed … and Plankton is Envy.
I will also note that the video pronounces “Sloth” with a long “O”, which is just not correct.
That leaves Pride and Gluttony. Pride could possibly be Sandy, or maybe that weightlifting lobster guy. As for gluttony … I could see that being Patrick again. Who knows?
