How The Design Of Spongebob Has Changed Over The Years

  • Published: 06 August 2019
  • Spongebob Squarepants was Nickelodeon at its absolute best. The animation studio has changed since the show first aired yet Spongebob Squarepants episodes still rule the network. Now there's rumors that Kamp Koral will be a full series in the future. Even still, it will be the work of Stephen Hillenburg in his full run that will be talked about for as long as animated shows make it to TV. In that process Spongebob Squarepants has changed and this is a look at how.

    Is Spongebob one of the best animated shows of all time? Where does it rank?

      Nerdstalgic my favorite shows:
      Nickelodeon: Spongebob, pretty much it.
      Cartoon Network: Definitely Adventure Time and Amazing World of Gumball.
      Hanna-Barbera and Warner Bros: Jetsons, Flintstones, Tom and Jerry, Looney Toons, Yogi Bear, Smurfs, Scooby Doo, etc.
      Disney: The Simpson’s, Gravity Falls and Suite Life of Zack and Cody/On Deck.
      NBC: The Office and Parks and Recreation
      Those are all the nostalgia shows for me
      Even though P&R, The Office and Suite Life were all live-action sitcoms

      I want to get a poster or some sort of memoribilia of this show, but I want to make sure it alludes to seasons 1-3 and nothing else. I don't want to be mistaken for someone who thinks season 4 onward is spongebob. It's not. It's garbage. Actually, that's too kind. It's garbage that's been eaten and then pooped out

        Hillenburg was Spongebob and when he left, so did Spongebob. Seasons 1-3 is Spongebob, and it was the greatest animated show ever made, and possibly the greatest show ever made. I can't overstate how much I hate every single moment of every single episode that I've been exposed to past season 3. It's forced, the storyline is always ridiculous and unrelatable, and the characters are not characters. They're caricatures of themselves

                    You say they start drawing him with cheeks in season 2, even though you just show a clip of him with cheeks in season 1...

                                          Why does his design matter so much. Spongebob is one of the greatest shows and regardless of what happen to his character we all had a great time watching it as kids.

                                            I hate the new spongebob of the newest seasons. It's cringey and stupid.

                                                  The old Spongebob was a little better but the rest were in no way bad. I grew up mostly seeing the 1-3 seasons of Spongebob but even when they had new ones I never went “wtf is this” granted I stopped really watching in 2010ish, but I never noticed some huge decline. And honestly I prefer the middle season looks over the extremely red Mr Krabs and kinda green tinged OG Sponge

                                                    Personally, season 1-3 was great however am I the only one that still enjoy seasons 4 to like around 9/10 like it still has enjoyable content.

                                                        You should also mention that season 1-8 was produced in 4:3 and SD. Season 9+ in 16:9 and HD

                                                                                              Every episode aired from 2017 to now is just shit.
                                                                                              I hope one day they’ll just go back to how it used to be. ☹️
