If an animated show has been running for more than two decades, it only does so if it is immensely popular and well-received by one generation of audiences after another, because, in twenty years, the viewers of an animated show certainly change, with new generations of children discovering, but, when it comes to SpongeBob SquarePants from Nickelodeon, we are positive that many teens and adults are watching it. While they might not do it regularly, they probably watch episodes of the show when it comes to television, making them reminisce about their younger days.
It is a real testament for a show to have been airing for such a long time, and that is why SpongeBob is currently one of the world’s most popular proprieties, at least when it comes to animation. Even if you’ve never watched an episode of the show, you probably know what it is about and some minor details, because he has really managed to get integrated into popular culture, with one of the biggest pieces of proof of that being the sheer number of this character's memes that are circulating on the internet, with new formats appearing constantly, featuring screenshots from this Nick show that are very funny.
Development, Story, and World
The Intertidal Zone, a children’s educational book made to teach the kids about the life forms in the sea and what goes on underwater was the origin of many ideas later used through SpongeBob SquarePants, which, at first, had been called SpongeBoy Ahoy, with the title having been changed after it was found out that name had already been trademarked. After its premiere in 1999, the show became an instant hit with critics and audiences alike, and it has not stopped since. Twelve seasons have been aired so far, with a thirteenth having been announced, and there had been no less than three movies had also been made for the franchise. The latest one is expected to be released in 2020.
The story of the show follows the title character, a yellow talking sponge living in the underwater town known as Bikini Bottom, whose house is a pineapple underwater, he works at a fast-food joint called the Krusty Krab and goes to a boating school. Each episode follows new and funny adventures of Sponge', together with friends and foes from this underwater world, such as Patrick Star, or Squidward, and plenty more. The misadventures of these characters are really funny and fun, always exciting, and it is really easy to fall in love with the world of these characters and everything they do in it.
The world of this show, the setting it has, is a character on its own, as it is so diverse, interesting, and unique, unlike anything you’ve seen in any other animated show for children, so we believe it is very important for us to tell you more about it, so let’s get underneath what makes Bikini Bottom such a fascinating place and interesting location that has captivated children all over the world these many years that the show has been airing.
Bikini Bottom is an underwater city in the Pacific Ocean. The characters in this world are fish in different colors who live in houses made out of ships that have sunken or lost parts of them, and they drive boatmobiles, which is a combination of cars and boats, as the show aims to imitate aspects of human life in that of fish and sea creatures. There are restaurants, two competing ones called Krusty Krab and Chum Bucket, there is a Boating School, the Treedome, which has oxygen and is enclosed from water, or the Goo Lagoon, a beach hangout underwater. Amazing, right?
The characters from Nickelodeon
Now that you became familiar with the world we see in the show, it is time to get more acquainted with its characters, since it is the lively and lovable characters of it that have made the show the big hit that it is, and we love each of them, and since there is so much we can tell you about each main character in part, it would only mean that they deserve their own section. Obviously, you will encounter the characters in our free Spongebob Games, so getting to know who you will be playing with will make it a better experience!
Among the ten main characters that we are going to talk about, we have to start with the titular character, the one, and only SpongeBob SquarePants! Just like his full name suggests, he is a square-shaped yellow sponge whose name is Bob, who is usually dressed in brown pants, a white shirt, and a red tie. His house is a pineapple under the sea, and his day job is that of fry cook at the Krusty Krab, home of the Krabby Patty, one of the most popular fictional foods ever. While he goes regularly to the boating school, so he can drive a boatmobile, he never got his license and is bad at driving.
Patrick Star is Spongebob’s best friend, the second most-known character in the show, and probably one of the most important ones since this duo of friends is inseparable, and when they get in trouble, they usually do it together and get out of it together, also. He is an iconic starfish in the color pink, who wears swim trunks with a flowery pattern on them, and he lives under a rock. Yes, a rock! One of the main traits Patrick is known for, even by those who have not watched the show is that he is really, really, stupid. His intelligence is very low, but he is still kind-hearted, and really loves his best friend, from whom he can’t separate. Despite his kindness, you don’t want to piss off Patrick, who can get really angry at times, just like real starfish.
Squidward Tentacles he is a cashier, but also is a next-door neighbor. Squidward gets annoyed by his antics most of the time, as he has quite a grumpy personality and quite a sarcastic sense of humor. Still, he deeply cares for the sponge character, who might be the closest thing to his best friend. He considers himself an incredible artist, but no one really cares about that. He is also a little bit narcissistic, and his hobbies include playing the clarinet.
Mr. Krabs is the red krab who owns Krusty Krab, who is quite smart, confident, and really loves money, which is why he wants to sell as much food as possible. His house is in the shape of an anchor, where he lives with his teenage daughter, a whale called Pearl. He wants to save as much money as possible, and while he cares for his daughter, he does not necessarily care about his employees, taking advantage of Spongebob’s good nature quite a lot. Pearl Krabs only wants to make friends and fit in with other fish, which is difficult because of her big size. She loves buying clothes and being in-style, as well as listening to music, like most teenage girls.
