* UnCancelled: [=SpongeBob=] [=SquarePants=] initially ended production in February of 2002 on request of Stephen Hillenburg and Derek Drymon. Nickelodeon tried so hard to convince Stephen to resume production with the series but Stephen and Derek denied the option. Around 2003-2004, there were negotiations to revive the series & Paul Tibbitt agreed to step in as showrunner for the new seasons. The series went back into production in 2004 and with the completed movie finished to screen into theatres (designated to be the series finale of the original run), the show's new episodes began airing in 2005.

** Patrick's original German voice, Marco Kröger, was fired in 2013 after Kröger complained that he and his colleagues were getting underpaid, and he was replaced by Fritz Rott. Due to AuthorExistenceFailure, Squidward's Chinese, German and Japanese voice actors had to be replaced as well.

* ExecutiveMeddling: It has saved the show from two series finales. [[WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobSquarePantsMovie The movie]] was intended to be a GrandFinale for the series, but the possibility was later pushed to the "Spongebob's Last Stand" special. The show was continued since it was very close to dethroning {{WesternAnimation/Rugrats}} as the longest running Nicktoon. It eventually did bypass the series when it aired episode 173.
