The hobby first appears in the episode "Bubblestand." In it, Patrick and Squidward both try to do blow a bubble, but end up blowing puny ones. To help people blow bubbles, SpongeBob shows them the "technique" for twenty-five cents. The bottle of the bubble container is labeled "Super Bubble." Although SpongeBob is a pro-bubble blower, none of his bubble creations have lasted forever, due to the fact that all bubbles pop eventually.
In "Atlantis SquarePantis," it is shown that bubble blowing has been around for centuries, and Atlantis is home to the oldest bubble in existence. Unfortunately, Patrick pops it when he takes a photo, which creates a major issue.
In "What Ever Happened to SpongeBob?," bubble blowing was outlawed in New Kelp City because of The Bubble Poppin' Boys, until SpongeBob blew them away in a giant bubble. When SpongeBob became mayor, he made it legal to blow bubbles in NKC. However, the city was soon overrun with bubbles.
In Battle for Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob uses bubbles for some of his main attacks including a Viking helmet, bowling ball, shoes, and cruise missile
