SpongeBob SquarePants

Naughty Nautical Neighbors / Boating School - S1-E4

Corrected entry: When Patrick tells SpongeBob how to drive with the walkie-talkie, and SpongeBob starts driving with his help, you can see that in the track there's a wall of red bricks, that he must not crash. In order for not to crash it, SpongeBob must continue the road, turn left, turn right and turn right again. However, Patrick just says to continue the road, turn left and turn right. He didn't say about turning right again, and SpongeBob must have turned right to continue in the road. However, SpongeBob does continue in the road.

Correction: SpongeBob obviously realizes that he will crash if he doesn't turn, so he turns. He has enough boating skills to know how to turn.


Culture Shock / F.U.N. - S1-E10

Corrected entry: In "Culture Shock," at the beginning of the talent show, Squidward says, "Welcome to the first annual Talent Show," which means they would have one once a year. However, at the end of the episode, Mr. Krabs says something like, "I can't wait till next week's show," meaning they would have one once a week.

Correction: Mr. Krabs says this after he notices the big wheelbarrow of money. We can assume he changed the talent show from once a year to once a week to get more money.

MuscleBob BuffPants / Squidward, the Unfriendly Ghost - S1-E11

Corrected entry: If Squidward's sculpture melted, wouldn't the eyes melt too?

Correction: This is a question, not a movie mistake. It is never mentioned that the whole sculpture is made from the same material, so we can assume that the eyes were made from some other material, otherwise they would have melted like the rest of the sculpture.

Fools in April / Neptune's Spatula - S1-E19

Corrected entry: When Squidward is running to catch Spongebob, the people in the background and the foreground just repeat over and over (like the fish in the pink in the front is seen about three times) almost like it is a loop.

Correction: This is a common animation technique used in almost every cartoon to save time and energy. No mistake here.

Sailor Mouth / Artist Unknown - S2-E15

Corrected entry: When Squidward gets Spongebob back in Artist Unknown he says, "Let's start with the circle again," and makes a perfect circle. Spongebob circles about 4 or 5 times and only one circle comes out.

Mr. Freeze

Correction: Spongebob simply retraced the circle 4 or 5 times.

Born Again Krabs (aka A Penny Saved) / Safety Freak (aka I Had An Accident) - S3-E17

Corrected entry: In "Born Again Krabs," The Flying Dutchman gives Mr. Krabs six coins and takes Spongebob away. When Mr. Krabs throws the money, there are now seven coins.

Correction: Watch the scene again, there is always 6 coins.

Jellyfishing / Plankton! - S1-E3

Corrected entry: In "Plankton", when Plankton has Spongebob in his laboratory, Plankton plays his record of evil music. However, he left the record on Spongebob's bed earlier in the episode.

Correction: It's called cartoon logic. Characters pull objects out of nowhere all the time in cartoons. In a show about a talking sponge, it's okay for the laws of reality to be broken.

No Weenies Allowed / Squilliam Returns - S3-E6

Corrected entry: In "Squilliam Returns", when Spongebob erases everything from his mind, (except fine dining and breathing) his brain is shown shredding papers. When his brain shreds memory, one paper shredded is entitled "Spice Garden Tips". Later when Squilliam arrives, Spongebob serves him the "Krabby Newburg" which he says, "contains herbs from our garden". But if Spongebob forgot his "Spice Garden Tips", he would not be able to prepare that dish. (00:05:40)


Correction: While I have to applaud the attention to detail, preparing food with seasonings from an existing garden would not require tips on how to grow one.

Grumpy Scot

Show generally

Corrected entry: This occurs in many episodes. Sometimes, Spongebob will walk into the Krusty Krab to start the work day and customers already have food. Squidward and Mr. Krabs have both been proven to be bad chefs, so it couldn't have come from them. Some examples: it occurs in "Sailor Mouth", "Where's Gary", and "Pressure".

Correction: As shown in "Just One Bite," the Krusty Krab has a Patty Vault full of Krabby Patties that SpongeBob replaces every 4:00 am.


Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy / Pickles - S1-E6

Corrected entry: Before Spongebob and Patrick takes their donuts, Patrick chooses one without chocolate. After a while we see it and now it's with chocolate.

Correction: When Patrick takes his donut we only see one side of it, and since the chocolate glaze is only on one side of the donut, we wouldn't be able to see it if the glaze was on the other side.

The Snowball Effect / One Krabs Trash - S3-E3

Corrected entry: How does Squidward get to the top of his snow fort if there's no stairs on the inside of it, not fall inside the snow fort without holding on? How does it snow underwater, and where did that big tree come from?


Correction: IT'S A CARTOON! Some suspension of disbelief is expected. Sea creatures don't talk or wear clothes either.

Jason Hoffman

No Weenies Allowed / Squilliam Returns - S3-E6

Corrected entry: How did Spongebob and Sandy get all of their Karate Gear in either a small bag or out of nowhere?


Correction: IT'S A CARTOON! Some suspension of disbelief is expected. It's common in cartoon for characters to pull a ridiculous number of items out of a small bag, or even a pocket.

Jason Hoffman

Texas / Walking Small - S1-E18

Corrected entry: How can everyone in Bikini Bottom hear Sandy's song if none of them have any ears?


Correction: It's a cartoon. You must suspend disbelief.

SpongeBob's House Party (aka Party Pooper Pants) - S3-E10

Corrected entry: Patchy's hook hand switches hands throughout the episode.

logan crews

Correction: One of the running gags on the show is that both Patchy's eye patch and hook switch from right to left continuously.

Show generally

Corrected entry: The road to the Krusty Krab changes depending on the episode. Like in "Your Shoe's Untied" it is a crossroad, but in "Pickles" it's just a road going to the side.

logan crews

Correction: And sometimes the Krusty Krab is a long distance from Spongebob's house, and sometimes it's literally right across the street. Normal continuity does not seem to apply in Bikini Bottom. Things shift and change all the time, on purpose.

No Weenies Allowed / Squilliam Returns - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When Patrick punches Spongebob, he appears to have a black eye. It dissapears immediately after he smiles.

Correction: All of the characters in the show get hurt at one time or another, and then the injuries immediately disappear. It's one of the main, ongoing sight gags of the entire show, and it's done entirely on purpose.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In some episodes, SpongeBob's house is apparently an actual pineapple (e.g. "Home Sweet Pineapple"), but in other episodes, it is apparently made of wood like in "Opposite Day", when they tear down the house and rebuild it.

Correction: Things in Bikini Bottom change all the time. For example, sometime's Squidward's house is there, and sometimes it's not.

Survival of the Idiots / Dumped - S2-E8

Corrected entry: In "Survival of the idiots", which is episode 8 in season 2, SpongeBob and Patrick don't know what snow is. But in episode 5 of season 2, "Christmas Who?", it snowed and they played in it.

Correction: Number one, Spongebob and Patrick are idiots. Number two, the episodes have been proven to not appear in chronological order. For example, the freezer is empty in "Health Inspector" yet Squidward was frozen in it 2 seasons earlier.

No Weenies Allowed / Squilliam Returns - S3-E6

Corrected entry: In "Squilliam Returns," Spongebob is confused that a waiter goes to tables and takes orders. However, in some episodes earlier in the show, Spongebob waits tables.

Correction: Spongebob has also been shown to be none too bright...plus, the show by its nature has little or no continuity between episodes.

SB-129 / Karate Choppers - S1-E14

Corrected entry: In karate choppers, when Spongebob slices the 'barnacle loaf' the piece flies into the air. As it falls past the mustard bottle, the mustard disappears. It's like the barnacle loaf erases the bottle.

Correction: Not true. Watch carefully and you see it falls over and rolls away.
