Other friends include [[IntellectualAnimal Gary]], [=SpongeBob's=] [[SapientPet smart pet snail]] who communicates by meowing like a cat; [[BrattyTeenageDaughter Pearl]], Mr. Krabs' teenage daughter who is a [[HugeSchoolgirl gigantic sperm whale]]; and [[TheAce Sandy]] [[BadassBookworm Cheeks]], [=SpongeBob=]'s Texas-accented squirrel friend [[FishOutOfWater who lives in an underwater dome]] and ventures forth wearing a bubble-helmet diving suit. The show is in a constant state of underwater bizarreness, frequently using the RuleOfFunny (apparently a wood fire is possible underwater as long as you [[PuffOfLogic don't point it out]]). Funnily enough, series creator Stephen Hillenburg has a degree in marine biology. Supposedly, he created a show about a sponge because he was really fed up with SmallTaxonomyPools.

''WesternAnimation/TheSpongeBobSquarePantsMovie'' came out in 2004, and a second [[TheMovie movie]], ''[[WesternAnimation/TheSpongebobMovieSpongeOutOfWater The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water]]'', was released in February 2015. After the release of the first movie, Stephen Hillenburg stepped down from his position as showrunner and intended to end the franchise with a movie finale. Some ExecutiveMeddling occurred, causing Nickelodeon to quickly renew the show for a fourth season. Paul Tibbitt then supervised the show from season 4-9. Once production on ''Sponge Out of Water'' ended, it was announced that Hillenburg would return to the show in 2015. Tibbitt has since resigned to focus on the upcoming third film--''The [=SpongeBob=] Movie: It's a Wonderful Sponge'', which is set for release in 2020--leaving Hillenburg as the sole executive producer as of the tenth season. Sadly, Hillenburg passed away on November 26, 2018 from ALS.

A Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} [[AnimatedSeries animated series]] about a highly energetic sea sponge [[Series/IronFist2017 named Bob]] [[OpeningShoutOut who lives in a pineapple under the sea. Absorbent and yellow and porous is he. And if nautical nonsense be something you-]] okay, you probably get it.

''[=SpongeBob SquarePants=]'' is the tenth entry in the Franchise/{{Nicktoons}} series of cartoons, and is easily the most popular and iconic of them all. It is about the eponymous sea sponge, who is shaped like a kitchen sponge and [[ThePollyanna is extremely optimistic]]. He works at the local [[XtremeKoolLetterz Krusty Krab]] restaurant with his greedy boss [[SpeciesSurname Mr. Krabs]] and grumpy coworker [[GrumpyBear Squidward Tentacles]]. He and his [[TheDitz dimwitted]] [[HeterosexualLifePartners best bud]] Patrick Star mistake their neighbor Squidward for a close friend, [[ButtMonkey much to his]] [[OnlySaneMan chagrin]].

Funnily enough, series creator Stephen Hillenburg has a degree in marine biology. Supposedly, he created a show about a sponge because he was really fed up with SmallTaxonomyPools.

The show, first broadcast in 1999, proved to be a HUGE success with both kids and adults. Kids enjoy the bright colors and silly characters while adults appreciate its writing, wit, and a long list of [[Radar/SpongebobSquarepants parental bonuses]] and [[Radar/SpongebobSquarepants Getting Crap Past the Radar]].
