* StylisticSuck: Any scenes featuring Patchy the Pirate and Potty the Parrot are meant to look as cheap as possible. Especially Potty, a extremely poor-looking marionette.

* {{Somethingitis}}: We can frequently see this trope be used by supposedly qualified people, such as "head-go-boom-boom-itis" in Squid Baby, or "oral-report-itis" in Oral Report.

* WholePlotReference: "Patrick Smartpants" is ''Literature/FlowersForAlgernon''. Patrick suddenly becomes smart after an accident in Jellyfish Fields. It turns out that after the top of his head was knocked off, [=SpongeBob=] put a "brain coral" on Patrick instead of Patrick's real head.

** The very first episode, "Help Wanted", is a loose remake of a scene from the ''[[Creator/JerryLewis The Bellboy]]'' where Stanley's boss makes him set up chairs in a huge ballroom to keep him out of trouble, only to return a minute later and see every chair single set up perfectly. Just replace "setting up chairs" with "looking for a hydrodynamic spatula" and "doing it abnormally fast" with "actually finding it."

* UnreadableDisclaimer: In "Pickles", it's revealed Mr. Krabs does have a money back guarantee on his menu, but it's written in text that you'd need a microscope to read. Bubble Bass is somehow aware of it, though.
