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.

The French version digitally changes the opening title cards for each episode to the title in French. The opening sequence has also been slightly altered: the bubble words "SpongeBob SquarePants" has been replaced with a bubble version of SpongeBob. On the board that changes colors, SpongeBob's face replaces the name SpongeBob SquarePants; the part where SpongeBob's pants bounce around the show's title has been replaced with scenery in Bikini Bottom, and the show's title is digitally altered to read "Bob l'eponge".
