Storyline

The character-driven toon chronicles the nautical and sometimes nonsensical adventures of SpongeBob, an incurably optimistic and earnest sea sponge, and his undersea friends. Dwelling a few fathoms beneath the tropical isle of Bikini Atoll in the sub-surface city of Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob lives in a two-story pineapple. Instead of taking the logical approach to everyday challenges, SpongeBob approaches life in a wayward and unconventional way. Whether searching for the ultimate spatula to perfect his burger flipping technique at the Krusty Krab, or just hanging out with his best friend Patrick (an amiable starfish), SpongeBob's good intentions and overzealous approach to life usually create chaos in his underwater world.

My Favourite Nickelodeon cartoon ever. Patrick Star is outstanding.
22 June 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Spongebob is a cartoon not only to be liked by children but even elders because its sort of like Ren & Stimpy but not as filthy. Spongebob Squarepants is star of the show he is basically a yellow sponge living under the sea in a place called Bikini bottom. He has a job at a fast food restaurant called the Krusty Krab where he works for Mr. Krabs who is a very money hungry Krab always looking for a get rich quick scheme. Patrick Star is his best friend who is a Pink chubby star, in my opinion is the best character on this show, he's even dumber & more clueless than Homer Simpson. Squidward Tentacle is Spongebobs next door neighbor & also his co-worker at the Krusty Krab but can't stand Spongebob at all & hates working. They basically are the four main characters in the show but when you start watching the show you will start to recognize the characters more. A great cartoon for the whole family. overall from the two or three seasons i've seen of this, i would rate this around 8.5 / 10.
