The character-driven cartoon chronicles the nautical and often nonsensical adventures of SpongeBob, an incurably optimistic and earnest sea sponge, and his underwater 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.
Bigger. Better. More absorbent.

Back in 2004 Spike TV originally asked creator Stephen Hillenburg
if he could make them an adult version of SpongeBob to be a part of their adult animation block. The show was also going to be similar to Ren & Stimpy 'Adult Party Cartoon'
(2003). However Hillenburg refused to make it and the executives at Nickelodeon refused to sell the rights of SpongeBob to Spike TV. See more
The location of the Krusty Krab changes in various episodes. Most of the time, it is located to the left of SpongeBob's house. Other times, it's located to the right. See more

The episodes Sandy's Rocket, Culture Shock, MuscleBob BuffPants, Employee of the Month, Karate Choppers, and Rock Bottom all featured songs by the band "The Woodies" , however due to rights issues, the season 1 DVD changes those songs. However the original songs are still heard for broadcast and iTunes versions. The episode Roller Cowards also had a Woodies song featured in it. But unlike the other episodes, this one was changed for broadcast and remained intact on the DVD release. See more
