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.

      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

      The only thing that remained the same, was his sexiness.

          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...

                    I COULD NOT WAIT to get off the bus everyday to see the new episode when it first started! I still watch this show with my kids. ☺

                                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

                                                  I didnt mind the differences, what I do mind is Spongebob's new behaviour. HE'S ACTING LIKE A 3YR OLD 24/7!!

                                                  P.s. I also hate the voice of spongebob as a child in the upcoming movie..

The older designs just look like a nightmare. People hate everything new that comes, Star Wars Sequels has the same problem. People who just hate because other people hat it too, are not a real fan od the show/film
