** [[TVMovie Atlantis Squarepantis]] was originally [[https://twitter.com/_dolza_/status/451187862155710464 meant to be a regular 11-minute episode about Spongebob and Patrick, but the network made them turn it into a 33-minute "movie",]] [[https://twitter.com/_dolza_/status/500143312456536064 which resulted in many of the problems most people have with the film.]]

* 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.
