It’s hard to believe that SpongeBob SquarePants first aired 20 years ago, changing TV forever for the weirder. The premise of a sponge who works at a crab-run burger joint in an underwater town called Bikini Bottom, alongside a starfish, underwater-breathing squirrel and clarinet-playing squid was way more bizarre than arguably any kids show before it, and its wacky characters, storylines and animation style still stand out today.
According to an article in the Guardian, the show’s creator had been originally interested in taking the “dark, high-voltage weirdness and gruesome closeups” of other, more adult cartoons, and to make it palatable for kids. In the same article, writer Stuart Heritage claims that the show will go down in history as a sort of “gateway show” for a number of absurdist and sometimes-darker cartoons, such as Rick and Morty. He suggests that it might be best for older kids for this reason, which a study has in some way confirms. NPR reports that researchers found that the super-vibrant, hyperspeed weirdness that is so characteristic of Spongebob can sometimes short-circuit young minds, overstimulating them like crazy!
So what makes Nickelodeon’s biggest hit such an absolutely wacky show? Undoubtedly this “loud, hyperactive cartoon with a theme tune that sound[s] like a wasp attack and the word ‘Pants’ in its title” owes a lot of its success to just how bizarre it is. So what are some of the weirdest moments in the fictional lives of Spongebob, Patrick Star, Squidward Tentacles, Mr. Krabs and Sheldon J. Plankton? From “whirly” brains to Idiot Sauce, from a caveman Patrick to a town of Squidwards, the show is full of some of the strangest moments of any cartoon. Join Screen Rant as we count down the 25 weirdest moments from this wacky tv favourite.
