SpongeBob SquarePants

Your Shoe's Untied / Squid's Day Off - S2-E2

Continuity mistake: Near the start, at first you can see words on the menu board, then you can't. (00:05:50)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Throughout the whole episode of "Missing Identity", SpongeBob's shirt is backwards. This is seen with his sleeves being supposedly behind him. The sleeves are missing from the front, which is normal, but throughout the episode, pay attention to behind SpongeBob. His sleeves are supposed to be behind him, but are missing altogether.

Sandy's Rocket / Squeaky Boots - S1-E8

Audio problem: In "Sandy's Rocket", when Sandy says "Aliens? Is that what this is about?" her mouth stops moving halfway into her sentence.


Help Wanted / Reef Blowers / Tea at the Treedome - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: In "Help Wanted", the last time SpongeBob says "I'm ready!", his collar turns red.


Growth Spout/Stuck in the Wringer - S7-E2

Plot hole: Squidward somehow knew it was Mr. Krabs who stole his food despite him being asleep when it happened, and Mr. Krabs leaving no clue to leading Squidward to finding out it was him who did it.

Casual Person

The Krabby Patty That Ate Bikini Bottom/Bubble Buddy Returns - S8-E15

Other mistake: Mr. Krabs pours Sandy's growth serum on a patty. It grows, and Spongebob scrapes some off to construct individual patties from the larger one. The larger one then continues to grow, but the individual ones do not, even though they are all the same meat.

As Seen on TV / Can You Spare a Dime? - S3-E5

Revealing mistake: When SpongeBob is mopping the floor, two kids walk into the background and put mustard and ketchup on their patties. It's obvious nothing is coming out of the condiment tap.

Casual Person

No Weenies Allowed / Squilliam Returns - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of "Squilliam Returns," Squilliam is walking to Squidward from the left of the garbage pails. When Squidward throws his hat out, Squilliam is to the right of the garbage pails.

No Weenies Allowed / Squilliam Returns - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: In "No Weenies Allowed," when Spongebob gets punched by Patrick, he doesn't have a black eye. When the shot zooms to Spongebob's face, he has a black eye.

SpongeBob Meets the Strangler / Pranks a Lot - S3-E20

Plot hole: In the end of "Pranks A Lot" SpongeBob and Patrick glue the door shut in order to keep Mr. Krabs inside the Krusty Krab. When SpongeBob And Patrick are visible again, it turns out that a lot of customers have entered the Krusty Krab to see SpongeBob and Patrick naked. All of those people had no way to get into the Krusty Krab with the doors glued shut. It can't be that they broke down the doors, as they're still there.

The Great Snail Race / Mid-Life Crustacean - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Krabs comes upon an elderly person, the old man tells him to wait in line like everybody else, and then Mr. Krabs sees a bunch of elderly people waiting in line in front of a cemetery. Seconds later a man handing out ice cream to the elderly people suddenly appears in front of the entrance.

Kaiser Strien

Show generally

Other mistake: Always in the older episodes (and sometimes in the newer ones), when a fish in the background takes his/her second bite of a sandwich, the sandwich still looks like the first mark. It does this on every bite after the first.

Bummer Vacation/Wigstruck - S4-E14

Deliberate mistake: When SpongeBob is playing with his Krusty Krab action figures, their faces change expressions instantly.

Character mistake: In the beginning of "One Krabs Trash" Spongebob only has one bill in his hand, a 5 dollar bill. When he goes to his house and comes back, he says he found 68 cents. Therefore, he has 5 dollars and 68 cents. However, he has two dollar bills and a few pennies in his hand, which cannot be made into $5.68.

Help Wanted / Reef Blowers / Tea at the Treedome - S1-E2

Character mistake: In "Help Wanted", Stephen Hillenburg's name in the "Written By" section of the title card is incorrectly spelled as "Stephen Hilleburg."
