Trivia / The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie

  • Actor Allusion: David Hasselhoff plays a lifeguard. Again.
  • Creator Cameos:
    • The show's storyboard artist Mike Bell appears in the movie as the fisherman knocked over by Hasselhoff.
    • Co-writers Aaron Springer and Derek Drymon both cameo as the laughing bubble from the "Thug Tug" and "the screamer character" respectively.
    • The captain's parrot is voiced by Stephen Hillenburg himself.
  • Creator In-Joke: Roger Bumpass, like Squidward, rides a recumbent bicycle. The storyboard artists added it as an inside joke.
  • Descended Creator: Writer and storyboard artist Mr Lawrence as Plankton, as in the show.
  • Missing Trailer Scene: The improperly made sandwich opening scene had a few things that ended up being cut from the final product.
  • So My Kids Can Watch: Alec Baldwin took the role of Dennis because his children were fans of the show.
  • What Could Have Been: As stated on the main page, the film was originally meant to be the series' finale.
    • Storyboards had a little Ho Yay scene of Spongebob grabbing Squidward's tentacle as he waits for the announcement of the new manager.
    • There was a deleted scene where Spongebob and Patrick would meet Sandy on land implying she moved away from the Bikini Bottom some time ago but she was also being chased by government agents for some strange reason. This was changed to due to censors being displeased at how much Patrick vomitted due to how gross he and Spongebob thought she looked on land as they reunited.
