40 corrected entries in show generally

Show generally

Corrected entry: The show Spongebob Squarepants was originally made for adults.

dogloverlennon

Correction: This is just a plain lie and started as an Internet rumor. The story behind the rumor was Spongebob Square Pants was originally going to air on Adult Swim. However, Spongebob debuted on Nickelodeon in 1999 and Adult Swim wasn't even created until 2001. Additionally, creator Stephen Hillenburg already worked with Nickelodeon on a previous children's show and always wanted to continue working with Nickelodeon.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Spongebob Squarepants was originally named Spongeboy.

Dandude776 1

Correction: While Hillenburg did draw a similar character he gave the name Spongeboy to, it was never considered for use in the show and not relevant trivia. There already existed a product using the name Spongeboy.

Bishop73

Show generally

Corrected entry: Throughout the whole series there was never a tree in Squidward's front yard. But in episodes like Christmas Who and The Snowball Effect there is a tree in the middle of Spongebob and Squidward's houses.

Correction: That could easily be a Christmas tree. It is snowing in these episodes, which most likely means it's Winter. The most well-known icon for Winter is Christmas, so the tree could have been put up for Christmas.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode when Spongebob and Patrick decide to make a Mermaidman and Barnacle Boy movie, Patrick states at one point that he had the cap on the lens of the camera the whole time. However, during the entire scene before he says this, you can easily see Patrick's camera, and the cap isn't on the camera.

Correction: Patrick mentions putting the cap on right before they start filming.

Flashback

Show generally

Corrected entry: There are times when Spongebob is right handed and other times when he's left handed. For instance, in the episode where he has to wear round pants, he fills out the Krusty Krab application with his right hand, but as he's taking notes from Squidward he's using his right hand.

Correction: In the episode "The Splinter" he mention's that he's ambidextrous. Not a mistake.

Fawkes the Phoenix

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.

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.

wizard_of_gore

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.

wizard_of_gore

Show generally

Corrected entry: In "Pranks-a-Lot" Spongebob is still wearing his socks and shoes when invisible. Shouldn't they have noticeable stains after they become visible again?

Correction: It's a cartoon. Most things in the Spongebob universe do not follow reality. Things appear, disappear, and change instantly and constantly all the time.

wizard_of_gore

Show generally

Corrected entry: In "Pranks-a-Lot" there is one prank where Spongebob and Patrick paint a mustache on Squidward. He runs out of the house, and the mustache is gone.

Correction: This happens all the time in the SpongeBob universe. It is an accepted convention that clothes, injuries, and things like paint on Squidward's face, appear and disappear instantly.

wizard_of_gore

Show generally

Corrected entry: If you notice, in some of the episodes, Squidward's tiki is completely gone.

Casey

Correction: The location of Bikini Bottom changes constantly, The size, shape, color, and location of Patrick's rock, Spongebob's pineapple, and Squidward's tiki head change regularly. It's a cartoon, and it's intentional.

Jason Hoffman

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode "Pressure," Spongebob, Patrick, Mr. Krabs and Squidward go up to land and they can breathe air. But in other episodes like "Tea at the Treedome," Spongebob can't breathe air in the dome, or like "Big Pink Loser," where Patrick says, "Island, I got an award," but he can't breathe air for even a few seconds.

logan crews

Correction: There is a few differences with the dome and when the gang was on the surface. The dome is somewhat like a glass house, sunlight is essentially the only element entering. That means there is either little to no moisture and no wind. Additionally the sunlight would make it much warmer than outside drying them out much quicker. With moisture in the air on the surface they would last longer. As we see they don't stay very long on the surface. As for when Patrick can't breath for very long in "Big Pink Loser" he was racing around everywhere and might have had to exert more energy jumping out of the water. In "Pressure" they were close to the surface before going on land.

Lummie

Show generally

Corrected entry: In Imitation Krabs the first few shots show Spongebob's spatula without any slits in the head. However for every other episode it has slits in the head.

Correction: This would only be a mistake if it was say the same scene, some period. Different spatula between episodes could be allowed for a variety of reasons.

Lummie

Show generally

Corrected entry: Whenever a license is seen, Spongebob mentions something about a mustache.

Correction: In the season 4, episode "Gone" he makes himself a licence and never says anything about a mustache.

logan crews

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode Dunces and Dragon's (Lost In time)., In the scene where SpongeBob gets a eyelash plucked out by a guard he has eyelash's but in every other scene he has no eyelash's just eyebrows.

Correction: Actually, spongebob always has eyelashes in every scene and episode.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode 3-21 "Pranks A Lot", SpongeBob asks what can he buy with 1 dollar, and the salesman gives him and invisible spray, that it's worth exactly 1 dollar. As we know, that's all the money that SpongeBob has, but when he pays the dollar for the spray, he gives more than 1 dollar.

Correction: It's never said that Spongebob only has one dollar. He just said "What can we get for a dollar." Perhaps he was just trying to save money.

Brad

Show generally

Corrected entry: In various episodes the rooms in Spongebob's house change, and make it too big to all be the same size as the exterior of his house.

Correction: First of all this mistake seems to be more opinionated than factual, secondly it is far too ambiguous to confirm or deny. Please try using an example to illustrate a mistake like this.

Lummie

Show generally

Corrected entry: The windows on Spongebob's house (other then the ones on the front) are always changing position.

Correction: This mistake is far too ambiguous to confirm or deny, please use an example to illustrate a mistake like this.

Lummie

Show generally

Corrected entry: In several episodes, Squidward and Spongebob are cleaning plates and cups at the Krusty Krab - but you never see anyone eating/drinking out of one at the Krusty Krab.

Correction: This mistake is far too ambiguous to confirm or deny, please use an example to illustrate a mistake like this.

Lummie

Show generally

Corrected entry: In 3-59 "Krabby Land," when Mr. Krabs introduces Krabby Land, the shape of the structure under the tarp is immense. When he removes the tarp we can that see the structure is the inferior structure that it is.

Correction: That's to hide the poorness of Krabby Land.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In some episodes SpongeBob has a garage and in most he doesn't, and also, why would he have one if he didn't drive?

Correction: Spongebob's house changes a lot. Sometimes he has an attic, sometimes he has a cellar. And also, many people have garages that aren't used to store cars. My garage is filled with boxes, and has NEVER had a car in it.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode "Missing Identity", SpongeBob says that he has never eaten Gary's food (that's why he tastes it). However, in "I was a teenage Gary", an episode that took place before this one, SpongeBob does taste Gary's food, when he's mutating. This not only happens in this episode, it happens in many. In the episode "Opposite day", we also see him eating Gary's food, saying "Meow".

Correction: The episode Missing Identity could be at a time before the other two.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In most of the shows, the grill in the Krusty Krab is right behind the front counter, with only a wall between them. But in "Your Shoe's Untied", it is on the other side of the kitchen.

Correction: As seen in some episodes, such as Nature Pants, there are two grills- one on each side of the room.

Show generally

Corrected entry: The spots on SpongeBob always changes between shots. For example, one shot, there is a big round spot on him, but in the next shot, it would be either somewhere else, or in a different size.

Correction: This mistake is far too vague and not information is provided to determine whether it is legitimate. There is no example of when this occurs, no specific episode or even exactly what the mistake is, as Spongebob has numerous spots on him and where this spot change is.

Lummie

Show generally

Corrected entry: The location of the Krusty Krab or Spongebob's house must change often, as Spongebob often leaves his home and goes to the right or to the left to go to work, also the distance between them also changes.

Mark English

Correction: We can't see the Krusty Krab from his house, maybe he just likes to take different routes on different days.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode "Missing Identity", Patrick throws trash in SpongeBob's face. When Patrick is going to clean SpongeBob he finds a disc on the trash. That disc wasn't there before.

Correction: Yes, it was.

Show generally

Corrected entry: The walkway to Patrick's house constantly appears and disappears throughout the episodes.

Mr. Freeze

Correction: As long as I have watched the show it is always there.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode 3-20, "Krabby Land / The Camping Episode", in "Krabby Land": SpongeBob arrives at the Krusty Krab, dressed like a flower, saying about the spring meaning, and so on. Later, when SpongeBob and Krabs know that there's a new park for children, Krabs says he has an idea and goes away. The next scene shows SpongeBob saying something like this, "What could happen with Mr. Krabs yesterday when he said.?". He says "yesterday", meaning that the scene with Mr. Krabs and the Krusty Krab was the day before. At the end of the episode, SpongeBob says "I thought I knew the spring meaning, but that was long ago.". Squidward says "Wasn't that this morning?.". But remember, that was the day before, when SpongeBob arrives saying about the spring meaning dressed like a flower, not that day.

Correction: Squidward really doesn't like Spongebob. When he said, "wasn't that this morning?" he was being sarcastic and saying that Spongebob is basically stupid for changing his ideas so fast.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In "Idiot Box," Squidward takes a sombrero out of a box and says, "Why haven't I worn this?" This is the same sombrero he later wears in "The Camping Episode."

Correction: No, the one in "Idiot Box" was smaller than the one in "The Camping Episode."

Show generally

Corrected entry: In many episodes there is a small green fish who is a child. But in "squid on strike" he is teenager.

Correction: Not enough information to be able to make an accurate comparison. Plus how can you be even sure its the same character?

Lummie

Show generally

Corrected entry: The ingredients in Krabby Patty change.

Correction: The ingredients of the Krabby Patty has stayed the same throughout the entire show.

Lummie

Show generally

Corrected entry: Every time Bikini Bottom is seen in bird's eye view, SpongeBob's, Squidward's, and Patrick's house isn't shown even the Krusty Krab isn't visible.

Correction: How this is a mistake? Their houses are not right next to the town. Most of them are quite distant from the centre of town.

Lummie

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode 4-2 "The Lost Mattress / Krabs vs. Plankton", Mr. Krabs claims he never heard of a bank. But in "Krabby Land," he says "Hi, kids. Uncle Krabs has to go to the bank now." He also has a sack of money, proving that he does put his money in a bank, rather than a mattress.

Correction: Mr. Krabs never claimed he didn't know what a bank was - he just fell into a "cash coma". And the sack of money he had was taken by the children. And.I think I've read in the book "Spongebob Revealed" (this is not a direct quote) is that Mr. Krabs alternates his money from a bank to his mattress. Another thing.Squidward said in "Plankton's Army" that he kept the secret formula in his mattress too. Supposing Sheldon were to open the mattress he could never have found the secret formula in the mattress with all his money inside.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Whenever Bikini Bottom is shown as a town, you cannot see Squidward's or SpongeBob's houses. This happens every time.

Correction: Why should it be? It's not close to the main town centre. Almost none of the major characters' houses are shown when Bikini Bottom is shown as a whole.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Here's some sad news...I heard Spongebob is cancelled. The last episode will air in January 2005, based on what I've heard. For more info, you might want to follow this URL: http://www.tvtome.com/SpongeBobSquarePants/.

Correction: Those were the rumors a few months ago, but now it's officially not. A source says there will be twenty episodes in 2005, so it probably won't be cancelled anytime soon.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Spongebob's house is round from the outside, but inside it is not.

tylerasktaylorsteckleralexdenny

Correction: It might be that some parts of the house have thicker and thicker walls, so that the interior has corners, while the exterior is circular. I have an attic, where from the outside it looks like it should have a ceiling that is 'pointed' upwards, but is actually a normal looking room. So basically in Spongebob's house, an overheard shot minus the roof might look like a rectangle (or many rectangles) in a circle. (Another thing - the hallway that contains two sets of stairs opposite each other that spiral down and lead to the kitchen IS circular/cylindrical).

Show generally

Corrected entry: Sandy has a suit on when she's walking around Bikini Bottom. On the square on the suit, it either has 3 dots OR an acorn. Does it change by itself?

Correction: Sandy probably has 2 suits.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In "Jellyfishing," Squidward comes home and Patrick stupidly says "Merry Christmas." But he didn't know about Christmas until the episode "Christmas Who?"

Correction: "Christmas Who?" is actually a flashback - Patchy the Pirate, in the present, is telling the story of Bikini Bottom's first Christmas. Therefore, the time that Patrick learns about Christmas could have actually occurred sometime before the story in "Jellyfishing", thus explaining Patrick's knowledge of the holiday.

Show generally

Corrected entry: Spongebob is repeatedly referred to, as a square, when in actual fact, the largest surface area on Spongebob which holds his face, is an irregular trapezium.

Correction: Well that would hardly sound as good in the theme song, would it? He is actually a cuboid, but I assume they're trying to keep the shapes simple so kids can understand it - it is a kids' show after all.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In the episode where Spongebob loses his identity, he constantly has his back to people. His name tag was on his back, so wouldn't someone have noticed it?

Correction: At the beginning when Spongebob first realizes he lost it, Squidward points to Spongebob's back saying something like "Uh...Spongebob..." but gets cut off, so it's fair to assume he saw the nametag and was trying to tell Spongebob. Besides, Spongebob only found out about the inspection at work, so he didn't ask anyone else if they had seen his nametag.
