54 corrected entries in season 1

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

Corrected entry: In "F.U.N.", The police officer gives Spongebob a big donut with a ribbon on it, but he did not bring it, so he just pulls it out of nowhere, as if the donut was waiting by itself.

bobthedancingdonut

Correction: That's a common gag in cartoons. Even in a future episode, Fear of a Krabby Patty, how Spongebob pulled a piano out of nowhere and Plankton questioned where it came from.

Jellyfishing / Plankton! - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When SpongeBob and Plankton jellyfish,SpongeBob catches a jellyfish with no spots. Then it shows the jellyfish with spots or vice-versa.

Correction: There is no such scene of SpongeBob and Plankton jellyfishing. The only time Plankton spends time with SpongeBob after being stepped on is when Plankton is controlling SpongeBob, and they don't jellyfish.

Jellyfishing / Plankton! - S1-E3

Corrected entry: In Plankton, when Plankton is taking over SpongeBob's mind, you see that he goes through the fridge with food on his head, but in the next shot, it's gone.

tylerasktaylorsteckleralexdenny

Correction: While the food is gone in the next shot, the shot isn't meant to be continuous. After he walks through the fridge he's in a completely different room about to step into his pants. He had plenty of time to shake the food off, or for it to fall off, between shots.

Bishop73

Arrgh! / Rock Bottom - S1-E17

Corrected entry: In "Rock Bottom" when Spongebob gets to the kelp bar and whenever he puts his hand in the bus vrooms, but watch when he runs over to catch the bus, he runs right through it.

Correction: That's not what happens. It might look like it, but it's clear that as he approaches the bus, the bus takes off and then we see Spongebob finish crossing the road once the bus is gone.

Bishop73

Arrgh! / Rock Bottom - S1-E17

Corrected entry: In "Rock Bottom" when it shows SpongeBob with a glove on his nose, he looks out the window. In the next two scenes, it shows him again, but this time the little glove is gone.

Correction: The glove on his nose is gone when he pulls his head back into the bus, reasonable to think he lost it while his head was out the window, because it's not as if it reappears later.

Bishop73

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

Corrected entry: At the beginning of "Reef Blowers", when Squidward exits his house, you can see that strangely his color is brown. But later in the episode he returns to his normal color, a light blue.

Correction: I don't see anything odd about his color, and he's certainly not brown.

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

Corrected entry: In "Help Wanted" when Spongebob wakes up and is climbing up the diving board the number of bars greatly maximizes when it zooms out on it.

logan crews

Correction: The close up shot shows 4 rungs (bars) and the wide shot (when it zooms out), there are still 4 rungs visible.

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

Corrected entry: In the episode "Help Wanted" when Spongebob makes Krabby Patties for the anchovies, Spongebob chops lettuce, patties, and onions for some of the buns and the buns don't have patties, tomatoes, or cheese on them. When he's done dancing, when you look at the patty buns there is no onion, but there is a patty and lettuce. Also in later episodes, the way he made those patties isn't the way he makes them now. And the way he makes them now has tomatoes and cheese on them. But this could probably be wrong due to it being a pilot episode.

Correction: First off, he's chopping lettuce, onions, and tomatoes. Not patties. Second, all the buns have patties on them. Third, just because we can't see the tomatoes and onions doesn't mean they aren't there, under the lettuce. Often (especially in drawings), lettuce will stick out from the bun edges, but tomatoes and onions usually don't. Fourth, he's making hamburgers, not cheeseburgers and we never see him pull out cheese. And finally, this was his first day on the job, and he was feeding several buses of sardines, so if he changes the way he makes them in the future, it's understandable.

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

Corrected entry: The chum bucket is not across the road from the Krusty Krab in this episode, but in every other episode it is.

Correction: Actually, it could be. We see that the Chum Bucket is just by the edge of town, and it is seen at the edge of the screen. Although off screen, the Krusty Krab is probably right there too.

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.

himan

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.

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.

Brad

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.

Texas / Walking Small - S1-E18

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

chocolate

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

wizard_of_gore

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.

Low Cow

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

Corrected entry: In F.U.N., when SpongeBob is Honorary Town Rookie of the Day, the townsfolk begin singing. All the people in the crowd are male, yet a female voice is heard.

Correction: So one of them has a high voice like a girl; it happens all the time, even in the real world.

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

Corrected entry: When we first see Squidward in the canyon background, his outlining is gone. Then, in the next shot, it's back.

logan crews

Correction: This entry is far too vague. How does his outline disappear? There is a black line around him and it vanishes? Please be more specific with this entry.

Lummie

Arrgh! / Rock Bottom - S1-E17

Corrected entry: When Spongebob is stranded in Rock Bottom and gets on the bus he says he has no money, but later on in this episode, while still stranded, he now has money for the kelp machine.

logan crews

Correction: He does not say he has no money. He just couldn't find it. While Spongebob was looking for the money, he kept hitting the bus driver, who got so irritated, he told Spongebob to forget it.

Brad

Sandy's Rocket / Squeaky Boots - S1-E8

Corrected entry: Why is every single person in Bikini Bottom wide awake and living their normal lives in the dead of night? It's way past midnight and people are walking their pets and Mrs. Puff is in her school, grading papers. No school would be open that late.

Brad

Correction: When you say, "No school would be open that late", you are referring to human schools? Real schools? Schools on land? We are talking about the absurd, vivid, totally UNrealistic world of Bikini Bottom, where they may live life as they see fit.

Super Grover

Bubblestand / Ripped Pants - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In "Ripped Pants" when Spongebob rips his pants off when he is singing the song and he only has on underpants and shoes, but the sleeves are still on, even though his shirt is off.

logan crews

Correction: That's because they are not part of his shirt. Look at when he takes off his pants, his shirt always stays with it but his sleeves never seem to be part of it. Chalk it up to another mystery of the show.

Lummie

Texas / Walking Small - S1-E18

Corrected entry: In "Walking Small" when Spongebob gets a tan, in the next shot it's gone.

logan crews

Correction: The tan is more of a visual joke and fits into the show's constant use of making a character look one way for a very brief albeit instant change before reverting back to how they originally looked. Examples include Patrick looking much fatter and with more armpit hair before returning to his normal weight and less armpit hair.

Lummie

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

Corrected entry: When Sandy chopped the rock, the outside shattered and the inside disappeared.

Correction: How can you tell? We just see it breaking.

Brad

Pizza Delivery / Home Sweet Pineapple - S1-E5

Corrected entry: At certain points at the end of "Home Sweet Pineapple," Squidward is drawn differently than he is in any other episode. His forehead is bigger, his torso is smaller and his legs are ridiculously long. This is most noticeable when he says, "Today SpongeBob moves. I can't believe it's really happening" and when he is celebrating and doing backflips right before SpongeBob's house comes back.

Movie_Freak 1

Correction: Maybe they had a different artist. This isn't a mistake, if anything it is trivia.

Pizza Delivery / Home Sweet Pineapple - S1-E5

Corrected entry: On the day that SpongeBob is supposed to be moving in with his parents, a clam can be heard cockle doodle doo-ing, and Squidward is seen getting out of bed and changing out of his PJ's, indicating that it is morning. However, when SpongeBob's parents pull up to take him away, his Dad says, "Hurry hurry, son. Your mom has dinner waiting."

Movie_Freak 1

Correction: It is morning when SponeBob first notices about his pineapple, but then he spends all day trying to fix it.

Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy / Pickles - S1-E6

Corrected entry: In "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy", when Sponge and Patrick were playing Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, Squidward wasn't wearing his shirt. In the next scene, he is.

Correction: The phrase, "In the next scene", defies the entry. Squidward slipped on the shirt between the two scenes.

Naughty Nautical Neighbors / Boating School - S1-E4

Corrected entry: In Naughty Nautical Neighbors, at the start, SpongeBob's house is on the very left and Patrick's house where SpongeBob should be.

Correction: This is because Spongebob and Patrick and in their backyards, so you are actually seeing the backs of their houses.

Bubblestand / Ripped Pants - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In "Ripped Pants", SpongeBob rips the same pair of pants a lot of times.

Correction: That's the gag for the episode.

Sleepy Time / Suds - S1-E15

Corrected entry: In "Suds", we see that there's a mountain at the back of the Krusty Krab. I think it's obvious that the mountain isn't in any other episodes of the show.

Correction: The mountain is added for comedic value and many other landmarks in Spongebob change simply for the same reason. However in another episode, Spongebob races Sandy down the hill and the hill is behind the Krusty Krab.

Lummie

Pizza Delivery / Home Sweet Pineapple - S1-E5

Corrected entry: "Pizza Delivery" is the only episode where the Krusty Krab gives Pizza and takes the food to the client's home.

Correction: This isn't really trivia. It is an obvious observation.

moviemogul

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

Corrected entry: This is the only episode that contains three episodes in it.

Correction: Thats not trivia. Its merely an obvious observation.

Lummie

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

Corrected entry: When Spongebob is about to throw the anchor he turns to his right and blows into one of his inflatable arms and both arms blow up.

tylerasktaylorsteckleralexdenny

Correction: There is only one "blow up the arms" hole which is on his right arm. If he blows into one it blows up the other one two.

Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy / Pickles - S1-E6

Corrected entry: When Mermaid Man "marries" SpongeBob, he goes rolling to his house. A shot that is far from SpongeBob's house (before SpongeBob gets there) shows that nobody is at SpongeBob's door. However, when SpongeBob gets to his door, suddenly Patrick is there.

Correction: If you look VERY carefully, you will see him in the wider shot.

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

Corrected entry: In "Help Wanted" you never see the anchovies pay, yet soon Mr. Krabs has a big wheelbarrow of money.

Correction: The scene is primarily just a collection of quick cuts and in turn we only see a bit of whats going on. We just don't see them paying, but in many of the shots of Spongebob in the kitchen they could have given the money to Krabs. Before Spongebob returned to the restaurant they might have even paid the money and was the reason they were getting so restless.

Lummie

Bubblestand / Ripped Pants - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When SpongeBob rips off his pants, they're torn at the sides, but when he throws them onto the ground, they're ripped at the back.

Correction: No, they were always ripped at the back. After he rips them off, they kind of fall apart so that the ripped parts end up on the sides, giving the illusion that they were ripped at the sides.

Sleepy Time / Suds - S1-E15

Corrected entry: At the end, everybody is at SpongeBob's house telling him not to be in their dreams anymore. Pearl is also there, angry. But SpongeBob didn't do anything wrong at Pearl's dream.

Correction: Pearl isn't angry with Spongebob for ruining her dream. She's angry because Spongebob just popped in and disturbed her dream, only for him to leave immediately saying he was looking for Mr. Krabs' dream.

SB-129 / Karate Choppers - S1-E14

Corrected entry: Squidward goes into the past and shows how to catch claims. When he returns into the present, he asks who invented that game of catching claims. SpongeBob and Patrick answer with the truth, Squidward was the one that invented it. However, how can SpongeBob and Patrick know this, if more than a million years have passed? It's impossible that the SpongeBob and Patrick of the past told everybody that Squidward invented that game and the story survived a million years, making SpongeBob to know that Squidward was the inventor.

Correction: The most likely theory is that the information of what Squidward looked like was passed on over generations. In the scene they don't say Squidward's name but when asked who created the game they say "You are!". That didn't mean Squidward's name was passed on over time but his image would have been and two and two together they linked it to being Squidward.

Lummie

Hall Monitor / Jellyfish Jam - S1-E7

Corrected entry: In "Jellyfish Jam" when Squidward calls Spongebob's house, a jellyfish answers, and Squidward yells in the phone saying, "square headed assault on my ears."(referring to SB). How come he was trying to talk to SB if he heard the jellyfish buzz, "Hello?"

Correction: Squidward hardly pauses to wait and see if it's Spongebob. He immediately starts yelling at him as soon as its picked up. Besides he may not be able to tell with the noise that it was jellyfish buzz to begin with.

Lummie

Hall Monitor / Jellyfish Jam - S1-E7

Corrected entry: At the beginning of "Hall Monitor", Mrs. Puff says it's time to choose the Hall monitor of the day, leading us to the assumption that a new hall monitor is chosen every day. However, directly in the sentence afterward, she says she is choosing that week's hall monitor.

Correction: Mrs Puff never makes mention of it being only for the day. She says to begin with "Now its time to choose the new hall monitor". A few shots later she says "The new hall monitor for the week is.."

Lummie

Jellyfishing / Plankton! - S1-E3

Corrected entry: In Plankton, when Plankton is controlling SpongeBob's mind, at the end when he jumps out on the patty, how can SpongeBob walk away if he still has that thing on his brain.

tylerasktaylorsteckleralexdenny

Correction: Plankton only has control when he is using the controls whilst inside Spongebob. Throughout the scene Spongebob has some control but not enough to get away. With Plankton out of his mind he regained full control of himself.

Lummie

Arrgh! / Rock Bottom - S1-E17

Corrected entry: Spongebob Doesn't have fifty cents for the bus but has the same amount for candy.

Correction: Spongebob never said he didn't have the fifty cents he just didn't remember which pocket that he put it in and while searching for it he kept hitting the bus driver with his balloon and out of frustration the driver tells him to forget it.

Jellyfishing / Plankton! - S1-E3

Corrected entry: Patrick's rock isn't supposed to be hollow.

Correction: Patrick's rock itself is never hollow but on occasion the ground underneath is dug out.

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

Corrected entry: Squidward spray painted "loser" pointing to his own face (which he also spray painted) on one of the front doors of the Krusty Krab. When Spongebob first goes into the Krusty Krab, the drawings (or whatever they were) disappear.

Correction: Squidward was actually cleaning it up, that's what the piece of cloth he is holding in his other hand is for. Although Squidward is not happy to work at the Krusty Krab, he is far too proud and too vain to insult himself in such a manner. Also, don't forget that Squidward is not very popular, so most likely the graffiti was from somebody else.

Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy / Pickles - S1-E6

Corrected entry: In "Pickles," Spongebob is confused about everything and when he has to sleep, he says, "So is it mattress, mattress, blanket, pillow, Spongebob? No, that's not it..." and every time he tries to figure out the order he names two mattresses. But Spongebob's bed has three mattresses.

Correction: Remember, Spongebob is very confused on everything so surely he could forget even the most simplest tasks or things, even how many mattresses he has while looking at them.

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

Corrected entry: This is supposed to be the first time that Sandy is in a episode, but Sandy is in a earlier episode called "Ripped Pants."

Correction: That may have been the first episode aired, but "Tee at the Treedome" was part of the pilot.

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

Corrected entry: When Spongebob took the wheel off, there should have been a hole in the door.

Correction: I cannot figure out why so many people keep submitting mistakes like this, especially since the corrections are all the same. It's a joke.

Jellyfishing / Plankton! - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When Plankton is controlling SpongeBob,and crashes into Squidwards house,Squidwards room is on the bottom floor usually it's on the top floor.

Correction: There is no episode showing that Squidwards bedroom is on the top floor, but, judging by how far his house goes back, we assume that his bedroom is on the top floor because, as we see in a few episodes, there is a living room on Squidward's bottom floor.

Jellyfishing / Plankton! - S1-E3

Corrected entry: When (or before) Patrick flings soup at Squidward with a spoon, there are no letters in it, but some shot later, letters are on Squdward.

Correction: There is a shot before Patrick flings the soup at Squidward showing that it is alphabet soup. Spelled out in the soup is something like "Happy Best Day Ever, Squidward."

Pizza Delivery / Home Sweet Pineapple - S1-E5

Corrected entry: Why did Spongebob decide to sponge paint a fence when his house doesn't have a fence?

Correction: This isn't really a mistake in the episode, since it doesn't really affect the storyline of the episode. But, if you want to get picky, then the reason he painted a fence was probably because he wanted his house to look more decorative, so he decided to put a painted fence there.

SB-129 / Karate Choppers - S1-E14

Corrected entry: Sandy is about to drop a hot sauce drop on Spongebob's tongue but takes the bottle back without it dropping - shouldn't the drop have dropped?

Correction: As a kid's show, it's just something to bring laughs to kids.

SB-129 / Karate Choppers - S1-E14

Corrected entry: When Sandy answers her phone, Spongebob sticks his hand through - you CANNOT send stuff through phones. (Similar also appears in "Jellyfish Jam".)

Correction: It's just to be a joke. It is a kids show.

Arrgh! / Rock Bottom - S1-E17

Corrected entry: In "Rock Bottom" at the beginning of the episode,watch SpongeBob's mouth,he says,"Another funtastic" instead of "Another fantastic day at Glove World."

Correction: It's just a change of words. It's supposed to mean Spongebob had fun.

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

Corrected entry: When Squidward comes to apologize to Spongebob, Spongebob pulls up his door and takes off the wheel handle. One thing is: Spongebob's door is solid metal. He couldn't have bent it without fire or unless if it was made out of tinfoil.

Correction: On the DVD 'Nautical Nonsense and Sponge Buddies', the creators said that they'd 'bend reality' for the cartoon- such as you can't have fire under water.
