Mermaid Man

Ernie (or Jim) Huckler, better known by his superhero name Mermaid Man, is a semi-retired superhero who lives in Bikini Bottom. He and his sidekick Barnacle Boy are the stars of a show-within-a-show called The Adventures of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, but they are also real superheroes within the SpongeBob SquarePants universe. The two are now very old and currently reside at Shady Shoals Rest Home. However, their two biggest fans, SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star, convinced them to come out of retirement. Along with Barnacle Boy and Grandma SquarePants, Mermaid Man is one of the three recurring characters who have been retired from the series. He and Barnacle Boy were retired after Mermaid Man's voice actor, the late Ernest Borgnine, passed away in 2012. He and Barnacle Boy now appear as toys or on pictures. Barnacle Boy's voice actor the late Tim Conway later passed away in 2019. His younger self is voiced by the late Adam West. [1]
