Facts About SpongeBob

Have you heard these crazy SpongeBob facts?

Most people think they know everything there is to know about SpongeBob SquarePants. He lives in a pineapple under the sea; he works at the Krusty Krab flipping Krabby Patties; his best friend is a not-so-bright starfish named Patrick, etc. Well, there’s much more to know about the star of Nickelodeon’s longest-running cartoon series. For instance . . .

  • SpongeBob’s name was almost “SpongeBoy.” It’s true. During production of the first episode, it was discovered that “SpongeBoy” was already taken and trademarked by a mop company. So the writers went back to the drawing board, changed the “y” to a “b”, and the name SpongeBob was born!
  • The guy who created SpongeBob used to be a marine biologist. His name is Steven Hillenburg, and he made his living studying marine life (including sea sponges)! You’d think with all that undersea knowledge, he would know that sponges don’t really talk.
  • It’s easy to learn to laugh like SpongeBob. The actor, Tom Kenny, who plays the famous sponge, explains how to do it. Just make an “Aaaaaaaahhhh!” sound (like a dolphin) and move your hand up and down on your throat. Try it! Annoying, huh?
  • Although SpongeBob’s fellow KrustyKrab employee is named Squidward, he is actually not a squid, but an octopus. He’s kind of a freak though, because octopi have 8 legs, and Squidward only has 6.
