SpongeBob SquarePants
Debut: May 01, 1999
Debut: May 01, 1999

Nickelodeon's hit cartoon show about a wacky sea sponge named Spongebob and his crazy adventures in the nautical town of Bikini Bottom. SpongeBob is a fry cook at the Krusty Krab restaurant, loves "jellyfishing" and annoying his grumpy neighbor Squidward (unintentionally). He lives in a pinapple and has a meowing snail named Gary. Spongebob's best friend is Patrick Star, closely followed by Sandy Cheeks and Squidward. He works for Mr. Krabs, his greedy yet business conscious boss. This was the first low budget Nicktoon to become popular. In 2004 a movie was made that kept the show on the air even though it was supposed to end. The executive team was taken over by Paul Tibbit but Stephen Hillenburg returned in recent years until his November 2018 passing.

My All Time Favorited Show on Nickelodeon.
    3 years, 8 months ago
    I watched it premiere back in 1999 after the Kids' Choice Awards. I forgot about it until July, when the first episode re-aired; followed by more episodes! My favorite episode back when the show was new had to be Ripped Pants or the one where SpongeBob loses his house. Patrick saying "SPIDERS!" when SpongeBob tried to sleep over with him made me crack up!

                        First off i have too disagree SpongeBob came out in the 90s so its a 90s show and its retro but only the old school Spongebob 1999-2004 can be called classic & retro the new SpongeBob sucks & isnt retro at all I agree this show should end but the old episodes are classic retro & awesome and halarious & funny & Yes SpongeBob will always be a alltime favroite of mine.

                                      it was the sick humor like patrick your genius is showing that got me into this show

                                          I actually remember the day it premiered like it was yesterday
                                            10 years, 7 months ago
                                            A lot of people hate this show because of it being right on the divide line of the 90s and 00s, it's not even that bad. I actually think that the newer episodes are more funnier than the older ones.

                                                Spongebob is a good show. The new episodes are kinda funny, but the older ones will always be classic. And as for those who hate Spongebob, either you take a hike or think of the old Nickelodeon and Spongebob at the same time, then BOOM! It's retro.
                                                  10 years, 9 months ago
                                                  Spongebob is the only show that I watch on Nickelodeon. And I understand people hate the season 4+ episodes, but they're not all that bad. Sure they're not as good as the original first 3 seasons, but they are decent.
                                                    10 years, 9 months ago
                                                    What's with everyone on this site hating SpongeBob!? I doubt if they've ever even given the show a chance. Anyone who hates SpongeBob has either never seen it, only seen the season 4+ episodes, hate it just because it's not retro, or just has no sense of humor. dbzgt is right. SpongeBob will always be a classic. No matter how bad the newer ones are, seasons 1-3 are classic.
                                                      10 years, 10 months ago
                                                      Spongebob will always be a classic.

                                                        Th first three seasons of SpongeBob were great. So was the movie. SpongeBob seasons 1-3 had some of the best episodes of any Nicktoon, but starting in season 4 the show went downhill. I do like some of the newer episodes, but most of them are crap, and even the good newer ones aren't as good as saeson 1, 2 and 3. And since SpongeBob is bad now, I'd like to see it just end now. It's been on long enough, and the new episodes are stupid. But since SpongeBob still gets Nickelodeon good ratings, it probably won't end anytime soon. My #1 favorite SpongeBob episode is a tie with "Chocolate With Nuts" and "Band Geeks".
                                                          10 years, 11 months ago
                                                          I agree with retro freak, maybe matt groening gave the show to another loser or whatever I don't know, but shows like these should've stopped while still great and not let leeches milk the money out turning it into a cartoon with zero substance and a 100% lame idiocy, unfunny jokes, and brighter and really annoying theme to it. I personally call the old spongebob the classic spongebob and the new one crap.
                                                            10 years, 11 months ago
                                                            I used to like this, but now that Stephen Hillenburg's gone, because he lost his show to another person who worked on the show, Paul Tibbit; the show's gone downhill majorly, and now is mostly about "pop culture" Kinda what The Simpsons are like today!
