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.

In Korea Sponge Bob is referred to as "Square Square Sponge" or, quite often, "Square Square Sponge Song" (in the title song they needed four words to match the music and most children refer to him the second way). See more

[Attempting to convince SpongeBob to give him a hat
I didn't want to tell you this in front of Patrick, but that hat makes you look like a girl.
Am I a pretty girl?
Well... yes, you're... you're beautiful.
