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.

    Spongebob is a great show don’t get me wrong and I’ll even watch it to this day but it doesn’t even compare to other cartoons like Ed Edd n eddy, courage, fosters, billy & Mandy, etc. Those were all WAY better shows

      I really hate season 9b onwards of SpomgeBob. All that show is now is just weird faces and extremely exxagersted faces. Sure Seaaon 4-8 werent as good as 1-3, but they still had good episodes and some funny moments

      Season 1-3 are classic television though. Some of the best childrens TV i've ever seen

          The german version of goofy goober 'Taubes Nüsschen' translates to 'deaf nut'

            I'm probably stupid or questioning the obvious, but is flanderizing based of me Flanders and his religious nature?

                    The voice changed too. Probably to accomodate the dumbed down personality... But yeah.
                    Originally he talked in a more midrange tone that was great. Over time it became what can be compared to a constant squeaking rubber duck.

                      I turned on a newer episode of SpongeBob recently.

                      I was drastically underwhelmed by how awful it was.

                              I love SpongeBob so much but the newest seasons are awful and unwatchable. It is not funny at all and just visually ugly. It is heartbreaking but I'll always have the early seasons to enjoy,... FOREVER, FOREVER, FOREVER........

                                            Older spongebob was awesome. The new ones are just bad. I suppose it’s more palatable for kids, but I prefer the old.

                                              Like everyone i think seasons 1-3 and i guess 4 are gold, but I think the rest until the second movie are still ok, i just hate mostly everything after the second movie because of how over-exaggerated the characters movements are, it just looks like every other cartoon now

                                                It's not a true breakdown video unless you identify the very scene, nay frame, where the character or show takes it's ill fated turn. Im glad you find them because nobody else does. Or frankly cares or is looking. I'm sure you're fun to watch shows with

                                                  That’s why sponge bob doesn’t seem the same anymore.... it’s not that I’ve gotten older, it’s the design

                                                            I'm a writer and I created my own characters I put so much love into. That ending there, it almost made me cry. I thought back to my characters and realized they were all a different part of me. As though I split myself into a bunch of different parts, and had them meet each other for the first time. Admittedly it was awkward at first but as I kept going it flowed naturally. I don't know how anyone else could replicate my characters more than I could myself.

Notice how most of his body is actually made of halve circles put together to create a square instead of just a square? He also has the big round eyes that remind people of babies. The front teeth are odd but are still actually small when you compare it to the rest of his teeth and the size of his face. Spongebob is fascinating in the it uses all the rules of animation to make something cute, while still maintaining the freedom to be different.
