* ToughActToFollow: Described by WebOriginal/RebelTaxi as "the Spongebob Syndrome," the show has become such [[CashCowFranchise a financial and pop-culture behemoth]] that any Nicktoon that succeeds it and isn't ''immediately'' as successful as ''Spongebob'' currently is [[ScrewedByTheNetwork will be canceled before its widespread appeal even has a chance to grow]].

* CantUnhearIt: It's hard to read any kind of title cards ("Meanwhile...", "[Amount of time] later...") in any show or movie now in any voice other than Creator/TomKenny's Creator/JaquesCousteau-esque narrator voice.

** "Squirrel Jokes" shows how hurtful politically incorrect humor (i.e. racist/sexist/homophobic etc. jokes) can be, as well as the fact that it's just plain lazy. Considering SpongeBob's main demographic, it's a very good moral.

* SeasonalRot: The show never was the same from Season 4 onwards.[[note]]When the show was UnCanceled in 2004, due to [[MoneyDearBoy the box-office gross]] the feature [[WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobSquarePantsMovie film adaptation]] (which was the intended GrandFinale to the show - season 3 ended production back in 2002, until Nickelodeon decided to revive the show) made in addition to the high ratings the show maintained, creator Stephen Hillenburg notably changed his position in the show's production and co creator Derek Drymon left.[[/note]] Once it started back up, the show became much more grotesque compared to the earlier seasons - post-movie seasons have VulgarHumor, massive {{flanderization}} of various cast members (with some being flanderized into [[TheDitz ditzes]] at best and [[DesignatedHero designated heroes]] at worst), occasional [[BlackComedy dark humor]], [[NightmareFuel creepy]] NauseaFuel, and overall less charm.
