Chum is Fum is a SpongeBob SquarePants online game. It is based on "Chum Bucket Supreme."

It is also based on the main slogan for the Chum Bucket that was created by Patrick.

It was released in 2009 to celebrate SpongeBob's 10th anniversary.


In this game, a character from the series has to eat as many Chumsticks as he can to get more friends to join his line. The player controls the character in front using the cursor. The player must collect Chumsticks, which earn the player one point each. Also, a character appears at the back of the line for every Chumstick collected. The line curves with the movement of the cursor, so the player must be careful to prevent any character from bumping into another. If that happens, the game ends.

  • For every ten points the player earns, a shocked SpongeBob appears on the bottom-right corner of the game window.
  • The minimum characters required to fail the game (including the one that the player controls) is four.
  • This is one of the few games that requires the player to help Plankton to succeed. Another example is one chapter of The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie PC game where the player is told to help Plankton steal King Neptune's crown.
  • When released on Nickelodeon.com.au (the Australian Nick.com), it was reported that the game would not load[citation needed], so no one could play it at all. Eventually, they took it down from the website and it was never seen again on the website.
  • The gameplay is similar to a non-linear version of Snake ("non-linear" as in moving in curves, not moving in perfect 90˚/180˚/270˚ rotation).
