Trivia

  • To date, season 7 is the only season of the whole show to begin its run while two previous seasons were still airing with "I ♥ Dancing" airing right before "Goo Goo Gas," which is from season 5.
  • This season holds the record for the most episodes being put on Nick.com before their US premieres, with a total of 11 episodes being put on Nick.com ranging from a day apart to 7 months apart their US premiere dates.
  • This is the last season to start before Nickelodeon's 2009 rebrand.
    • In addition, this is also the final season to have the Nickelodeon lightbulb logo from 2008 appear at the end of the credits. The final episode to use the lightbulb logo is "SpongeBob's Last Stand."
  • Starting with "Hide and Then What Happens?," the 2009 Nickelodeon logo appears above the SpongeBob SquarePants logo in the theme song, and the Nickelodeon Productions logo from 2009 also replaces the Nickelodeon lightbulb logo from 2008. But on some episodes, the Nickelodeon lightbulb laughing audio is still heard. This does not happen on international releases of this season, as the normal 2009 Nickelodeon Productions logo audio is heard.
  • This is the final season where all of the episodes are in 4:3 standard definition. As the previous and following seasons consisted of a single widescreen episode.
  • This is the first season to utilize the miniseries format; in this case, it applies to the Legends of Bikini Bottom episodes, consisting of six segments across three half-hour episodes, specifically episodes 140–142.
  • This season had the least fourth wall breaks with a total of five.
  • This season holds the record for the most episodes with animated title cards.
    • Season 4 was the previous record holder.
