Time cards are used throughout SpongeBob SquarePants to represent how much time has passed within an episode, performed by the French Narrator. They are identified as time cards by Patrick in "Wet Painters" when he tells SpongeBob to hurry up since he is all out of time cards, breaking the fourth wall. So far, the record for the most time cards in an episode is five, in "Rock-a-Bye Bivalve."

The first time card ever used was "3 Days Later..." in "I Was a Teenage Gary," although the French Narrator did not read it. He would later read the next card, "2000 Years Later" seen in "SB-129" and so on. The "Twenty Years Earlier" time card in "License to Milkshake" is not read either.

Trivia

  • "Rock-a-Bye Bivalve" is the episode with the most time cards, having five. In fact, it has more time cards than the entirety of season 1.
  • A time card reading "The Next Day.." mistakenly appears during the credits on disc 4 of The Complete Ninth Season.
  • The most common time card is "Two hours later," which has a total of nine appearances in the show, appearing in "Wet Painters", "The Great Snail Race", "Squidtastic Voyage", "Sun Bleached" (shown twice), "Chum Bucket Supreme", "Gary in Love", "Buried in Time" (shown with the number instead of the word), and "Don't Look Now".
    • If not counting a specific time to be said later, then "Later" is one of the two most common time cards, which also has nine appearances in the show.
    • This does not count the other "Later" time cards such as:
      • "Later, in the void..."
      • "Later That Night," etc.
  • The time card "So much later that the old narrator got tired of waiting and they had to hire a new one" is the longest of all of the time cards in the series, with 19 words and 69 letters.
  • The time card "The Next Day" in "Born Again Krabs" is the only time card so far to feature characters. It has SpongeBob, Patrick, Mr. Krabs, and Squidward in the corners.
    • If counting not only characters that are in the time card itself, then "Mimic Madness" is the second time where a time card features a character.
  • The "One Eternity Later" time card displays the longest passage of time in the series: an eternity.
  • The "Three Hours Later" time card in "Wet Painters" is the first one in the series to be held by a character, being Patrick. It would be followed by "One Little Boost to the Surface Later" in "SpongeBob's Big Birthday Blowout," which was held by the French Narrator.
  • The time cards "Just Then..." and "...By Sheer Coincidence..." in "Yeti Krabs" was the only time in which more than one time card was represented in one phrase.
  • The "Uhhh..." time card is the shortest time card with 4 letters, "Later..." being the second with 5 letters.
  • The "The Next Morning" time card in "Sanctuary!" is the same pattern as SpongeBob's pineapple, with a magenta aura.
  • The "Two Hours Later" time card from "Don't Look Now" is the last time card to not use an ellipsis at the end. All time cards starting with the "Just Then..." and "...By Sheer Coincidence..." time cards from "Yeti Krabs" have an ellipsis at the end. This would be the case until the "Five Billion Years Later" time card in "The Goofy Newbie".
  • The "70 Years Later" (Patrick the Snowman), "Meanwhile" (The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie), "2 Days Later" (Sandy's Vacation in Ruins), "A Little Later..." (Bike Safety Tips), and "Meanwhile..." (The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run) time cards are (currently) the only time cards without a season.
  • The very first time card from "I Was a Teenage Gary" (3 Days Later...) and the time card, "Twenty Years Earlier..." from "License to Milkshake" are the only time cards that the French Narrator doesn't read.
  • The "Brief Construction Montage" time card in "A Friendly Game" is read differently than what it reads in the two instances in the episode it is used.
    • In the first use of the card, the French Narrator reads, "What follows is a brief construction montage." In the second, he reads, "We hope you enjoyed this brief construction montage."
  • The episodes "Sun Bleached" and "Snooze You Lose" are currently the only episodes to display the exact time card more than once.
  • In some dubs, the time card "3 Days Later..." time card from "I Was a Teenage Gary" is read out.
  • Season 1 is the season with the least time cards, having two.
  • Season 9 is the season with the most time cards, having 23.
  • The "80,000 Impressions Later..." time card in "Mimic Madness" has SpongeBob reading this, imitating the French Narrator, who says, "Would you please stop imitating me? It is starting to get very annoying."
  • The "The Next Evening..." time card in "Larry's Gym" is read as "The Very Next Evening..."
  • The "Later" time card in "SpongeHenge," although by coincidence, is reminiscent of Toonami's sign off bumper, which also reads, "Later." However, the bumper is not read out loud.
  • The "One Weiner Later..." title card is misspelled, and should read, "One Wiener Later..."
  • There are time cards in the game SpongeBob's Game Frenzy.
  • The time card "One Hour Later..." from "Mermaid Pants" and "6 Months Later..." from "Dirty Bubble Returns" is read by the Realistic Fish Head rather than the French Narrator.
  • The "70 Years Later" time card from "Patrick the Snowman" is the only time card to be narrated by Nigel Thornberry from The Wild Thornberrys.
  • The time cards have been very popular in memes and YouTubers, even having 2 Disney Channel shows Milo Murphy's Law and Amphibia parodying it in the Season 1 finale and The First Temple respectively.
  • In "The Goofy Newbie," the "A few minutes later" and "One hour later" time cards" are read by a training announcer while "Five billion years later" time card is read by a robotic voice.

Plankton's Patty Plunder intro comic 2.jpg

  • A "15 Minutes Later" time card is used in the online game Plankton's Patty Plunder.
  • Season 10 has half as many time cards as episodes.


Time card design trivia

  • The pattern of the time card, "Epilogue" from "No Hat for Pat" would be reused for the ninth-season episode, "Mall Girl Pearl," except the title card was pink with magenta instead of green.
  • The "Meanwhile" time card in "Ugh" is actually written on a prehistoric wall, with drawings of two jellyfish and prehistoric hand prints.
  • The "75 Years Later" time card in "The Great Patty Caper" has the same background as the title card for the first-season episode, "Pizza Delivery."
  • The background of the "One Extremely Annoying Shift Later..." time card in "Enchanted Tiki Dreams" would be reused for the title card for the ninth-season episode, "The Executive Treatment."
  • The "One Long Angry Line Later..." time card in "Hello Bikini Bottom!" has the same background as the title card for the sixth-season episode, "House Fancy." It is also the last time card to be standard definition.
  • The time card, "Twelve Seconds Later" in "My Pretty Seahorse" has an edited version of the first-season episode, "Help Wanted" title card.
    • Likewise, the "Three Days Later" time card has the same background as the title card in "Squidville."
  • The "Several Song Filled Hours Later..." time card in "Toy Store of Doom" uses the same background as the title card of "Squid Wood," and "Patrick's Staycation, afterwards."
  • The "2000 Years Later" time card from "SB-129" uses a recolored version of the background from the title card of "Pickles."
  • The "A Few Inches Later" time card in "Shanghaied" would be later reused in the background and font for the title card of "Patrick SmartPants."
  • The "Twenty Minutes Later" time card from "SpongeBob Meets the Strangler" uses the same title card background from "Graveyard Shift."
  • The "Three Weeks Later" time card from "Can You Spare A Dime?" uses the same title card background for "Jellyfish Hunter."
  • The "Day Three" time card in "Band Geeks" uses the same background and font color from the title card of "I Was a Teenage Gary," which is the episode with the very first time card.
  • The "One Eternity Later" time card from "Squid on Strike" has the same background as the title card of "The Paper."
  • The "Many Months Later" time card from "Can You Spare a Dime?" uses a recolored version of the title card background from "Walking Small."
  • The "Two Days Later" time card from the short "Sandy's Vacation in Ruins" has exactly the same title card background as "No Hat for Pat."
  • The time card "The Following Thursday..." in "Porous Pockets" has the same background from the title cards of "Naughty Nautical Neighbors" and "Summer Job."
  • The "Meanwhile..." time card from "Drive Thru" uses a recolored version of the "Hall Monitor" title card background.
