네모바지 스폰지밥 (Nemopaji Sủponjipap), formerly known as 보글보글 스폰지밥 (Pogulpogủl Sủponjipap) or in the EBS version, 네모네모스펀지송 (Nemonemosủṗỏnjisoŋ), are the names of the two Korean-dubbed versions of SpongeBob SquarePants. The first dub, "스폰지밥 네모바지" airs on Nickelodeon South Korea, Tooniverse, and JEI TV (formerly, back when it was still called JEI Channel), while "네모네모스펀지송" airs on EBS. It is part of International SpongeBob SquarePants. The TV show does not air in North Korea because the North Korean government bans the transmission of any TV show not made there.

The EBS and the second Tooniverse version's openings uses the French version, and the current one uses the US version, albeit both being edited.
