The Sponge House is a The Loud House fanfic by author Mr. Animator. It was first published on October 25, 2017.

This fanfiction is a parody of several episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants, with the cast of The Loud House taking the place of SpongeBob and his friends.

Unfortunately, the stories were deleted. But fortunately, they're reuploaded on his DeviantArt Account here and it appears that's where all future chapters will be posted from now on.

  • Parody: Each chapter is a parody of a SpongeBob SquarePants episode with the Louds.
  • Pragmatic Adaptation: Sometimes, something is changed so it better fits the Loud House universe:
    • In "Lifeguard Lincoln", there are kids in costumes, instead of actual sharks and sea monsters.
    • In "Lynn's Little Secret", Lynn is knocked out instead of exploding like Squidward did in "Just One Bite", because it wouldn't make sense to explode from collecting toys.
    • In "Wishing You Well", Mrs. Johnson wishes for a car instead of a boat, since humans don't drive boats on land. Flip also gets chased by an angry mob instead of eaten, because the latter would be too disturbing. In addition, instead of wishing to be taller like Plankton in the original, Mr. Grouse who is already on the tall side wishes for a full head of hair.
    • In "Pizza Delivery", the coral is replaced by wood, since coral doesn't grow on land.
    • Lena wants to steal an invention, not a recipe, because Lisa, her nemesis, isn't a cook.
    • In "Charles Takes a Bath", Lincoln doesn't strap a real bomb to his chest to get Charles to take a bath, only a water bomb, because he's smarter than SpongeBob. He also pretends to phone the dog pound instead of the French restaurant, since it would be out-of-character for him to imply he wanted to have his pet cooked.
    • In "Wet Painters", Mr. Grouse threatens to confiscate Leni and Luan's things rather than cut their butts off, since he isn't that mean.
    • In "Frankendoodle", the pencil is invented by Lisa rather than simply inexplicably existing, in "Loud Dreams", Lincoln dream-walks with one of Lisa's inventions, and in "The Abrasive Side of Lincoln", the abrasiveness is caused by a pill invented by Lisa.
    • Many creatures have changed species to better befit a non-underwater setting.
    • The "If we're underwater, how can there be a—-?" gag is cut and replaced with the fire simply going out, since obviously, the Loud twins are not underwater.
    • In "Lona Loud", the twins, fused together, dance instead of playing clarinet, since Lola can't do that.
    • In "Scaredy Boy", Rusty's brain doesn't get exposed like SpongeBob's; he just becomes bald.
    • In "Flippy Love", Mr. Johnson dies in an accident rather than being harpooned, since humans obviously don't tend to get harpooned.
    • "Missing Boo-Boo Bear" is about Lori missing Bobby, not anyone missing their hometown, because there are no out-of-towners in The Loud House.
    • Davy Jones's Locker is replaced with a pit of trash called the Stinky Pit.
    • The "F-U-N Song" lyrics are changed to mention ice cream cones (instead of sand licking) and a city (instead of the sea).
  • Raw Eggs Make You Stronger: Lincoln feeds Charles raw eggs when training him "because they're cliche".
  • The Rival: Lena Shroud is Lisa Loud rival.
  • Saying Sound Effects Out Loud: In "A Lori Through Time", Luc-Tron says, "Sigh".
  • Shout-Out: Luan makes a joke to Mary "What do you call an insect crossed with a rabbit? Bugs Bunny!".
  • The Shrink: "Lona Loud" ends with Lola at the psychiatrist.
  • Sibling Fusion: The Loud twins end up fused together because of one of the inventions of their Child Prodigy sister Lisa. They look like Conjoined Twins and even their outfit is a cross between their outfits— Lana's overalls, Lola's sash, one of Lana's shoes, and one of Lola's. At the end of the chapter, all their siblings, plus their parents, become fused with them. They're fine in the next chapter, though.
  • Something Tron: The robot versions of the Louds seen in "A Lori Through Time" are Linc-o-Tron, Lor-Tron, Len-oni-Tron, Lunar-Tron, Luan-o-Tron, Lynn Jr. Tron, Luc-Tron, Lano-Tron, Lol-Lol-Tron, and Lis-o-Tron. The only one who doesn't have "tron" in her name is Lily, whose robot counterpart is The Lilster.
  • Spell My Name with a "The": In "A Lori Through Time", the robot Lily is named The Lilster.
  • Spot the Imposter: In "Imitation Loud", Lisa's siblings have to determine who is her and who is Lena.

  • Tempting Fate: In "Life of Crime", Lana hopes the fire will last, only for the fire to go out.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Mary the rabbit wears a bow.
  • Threatening Shark: In "A Shark Tale", a shark eats Lynn Sr.'s paycheck and nearly eats Lynn Sr.
  • Time Travel Episode: In "A Lori Through Time", Lori goes to the distant future, then to caveman times.
  • Torches and Pitchforks: In "Wishing You Well", Mr. Grouse gets chased by an angry mob who are angry because he sold expired milk.
  • Toy-Based Characterization: In "Lynn's Little Secret", each Loud sister's favourite Princess Pony toy says something about her — the bossy Lori likes a pony named Bossy Boots, Leni likes one named Beauty Foal, Luna the rocker likes a rocker pony, Luan likes a clown pony, Lynn who likes action likes a fire-themed pony, Lucy likes a black and grey pony, Lana likes one named Dirty Mudpie, Lola (who wears pink and likes diamonds) likes one named Pink Diamond, Lisa likes one named Brainy, and baby Lily likes a baby pony.
  • Unconventional Food Usage: In "Dirty Mouth", a woman sticks carrots in her son's ears so that he won't hear the Loud twins cussing.
  • Unsuccessful Pet Adoption: In "Ditched", Luan adopts a rabbit named Mary and a monkey named Chimpy, but Chimpy runs away and Mary is too grumpy.
  • We Are Not Going Through That Again: In the end of "Can You Spare an Action Figure", when Lincoln begins accusing Lori of putting the action figure in his pants. Clyde leaves the house.
  • "Which Restroom?" Dilemma: In "Royal Bottom", the bathrooms have question marks on them, one of which is upside down, and the inhabitants are trolls of indeterminate gender.
