* RuleOfFunny: LaughboxOne of the reasons why there's little continuity for the show, for example, as a Sponge, [[=SpongeBob=]] himself can either be completely boneless, or injure himself DependingOnTheWriter.

* ToneShift: The first three seasons had a lot of SurrealHumor and [[ParentalBonus Parental Bonuses]]. After the movie, there is much more emphasis on [[GrossOutShow Gross-Out Humor]] and BlackComedy.

* WrongRestaurant:
** In "[[Recap/SpongebobSquarepantsS3E3TheBullyJustOneBite The Bully]]", Patrick calls Mrs. Puff's Boating School, thinking he called Pizza Castle, and tries to order a pizza. [=SpongeBob=] is actually glad Patrick called, and hopes he will stand up to Flats for him. Unfortunately for [=SpongeBob=], Flats is Patrick's old community college buddy.
** In "Pizza Delivery", someone calls the Krusty Krab for a pizza by mistake. Not one to miss out on a quick buck, Mr. Krabs smashes some Krabby Patties into a pizza and has [=SpongeBob=] and Squidward deliver it. HilarityEnsues.
** In "Squidville", [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick are at the gate to Tentacle Acres, where Squidward has moved. Patrick mistakes the intercom for a take out window and makes an order.
** In 'Seance Schmeance", an old man keeps coming to the Krusty Krab mistaking it for the restaurant that was there before, asking for a certain sandwich. Mr. Krabs holds a seance to find the recipe and get rid of the customer once and for all.
** In "Komputer Overload", a customer is at the drive thru of the Chum Bucket and keeps trying to order items that the Krusty Krab sells. Plankton angrily tells the customer that they don't sell any of those items, and if he wants any of those, he should go to the Krusty Krab.

* SevenDeadlySins: Like Series/GilligansIsland, each main character represents one of them. Bob is Lust; Patrick is Sloth; Squidward is Wrath; Sandy is Pride (and how!); Mr. Krabs is Greed; Gary is Gluttony; and Plankton is Envy. Although there ''are'' other interpretations.

** His drivers license says he was born in 1986. So Word of god is he's twenty three putting the series in 2009.
*** Actually, his DOB is July 26 1986, and since the first episode aired on May 1 1999, that would make him 12 going into 13. However, that clashes with having to work at a fast-food restaraunt, trying to get a driver's lisence and owning a home and a snail. You can't say he's gotten older as the series progressed, as he's been doing all of these thing since the 90's!
* ValentinesDayEpisodes: "Valentine's Day".

* SpiritualSuccessor: ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' would be this even though ''[=SpongeBob=]'' was UnCancelled at the last minute because many of the key staff left the show when it was uncancelled, thinking that it was done for. for permanent. Derek Drymon worked on the pre-cancellation seasons of ''[=SpongeBob=]'' and works on Adventure Time & [=SpongeBob=] became incredibly different when it was revived........

*** A large part of the the pre-2004 crew now work for ''WesternAnimation/PhineasandFerb''. Most notably Dan Povenmire and Robert F. Hughes. (Who also both worked on Rocko.)

* SpringtimeForHitler: It's theorized that all episodes after TheMovie are this, as it was Stephen Hillenburg's intention to end it after the aforementioned movie.
** Just look at the list of episodes on the ''[[http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003SLEDHY/ref=pe_5140_16854490_snp_dp 10 Happiest Moments]]'' DVD. Only ''one'' of them is from a season above season three...
** Word of god has now stated that The Movie is the final episode, and the episodes we're seeing on TV are prior to the movie. Which explains a lot of things, like the Krusty Krab 2 and why Neptune is very old and balding in the movie but in the shows he's very young. A few new episodes make references to the old ones though...

* SurpriseCreepy: While not part of the show. The 2005 educational short [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UOCmMYINkI "The Endless Summer"]] since ends with Mr Krabs realizing everyone except Spongebob left Bikini Bottom due to the effects of Global Warming. The ending is also very eerie and depressing to look at especially Mr Krabs reaction when he realizes what he's done to the climate.
