Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* 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...

* ShockinglyExpensiveBill: Mr. Krabs receives a restaurant bill of $100 after taking Mrs. Puff on a date, and claims it "can't possibly by correct". The waiter apologizes and hands him his real bill�of $100,000.

* 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.

* RealityEnsues: During [=SpongeBob=]'s power trip after becoming Hall Monitor, he tries to lead traffic, causing multiple accidents. Then, he breaks into a family's home in an attempt to teach them about 'the dangers of open windows'. It's rather ridiculous and the audience probably won't give it a second thought, assuming it's being PlayedForLaughs; however, [=SpongeBob=] is wanted by the police shortly afterwards.
** Similarly, in "Jellyfishing", [=SpongeBob=] and Patrick attempt to take Squidward jellyfishing, only for him to constantly be attacked by jellyfish. YMMV depending on whether you consider Squidward's subsequent body casts and hospital visits to be this or AmusingInjuries.

Added DiffLines:

** In "Nature Pants", SpongeBob gives up his job to live among the jellyfish in the wild. He then proceeds to get stung repeatedly by said jellyfish, end up hungry, cold and lonely in a cave and procceds to get infested by poisonous sea urchins.

** IneffectualSympatheticVillain Plankton and [=SpongeBob=]'s long-suffering boating teacher Mrs Puff in 'Wishing You Well' both get their wishes granted, with Plankton wishing to be taller and Mrs. Puff wishing for her own hot rod.

** The newer seasons are by no means immune. One early post-movie episode, ''Wishing You Well'' ended with Mr. Krabs being wished away and ''almost eaten''. He was fine in time for the next episode.
