SpongeBob's Top 100 was a Nickelodeon UK and Ireland marathon counting down the Top 100 episodes.

It was shown everyday from June 4 to June 8, 2012, 12:00pm – 5:00pm GMT.

Voting System

Viewers voted from a selection of 100 episodes on www.nick.co.uk. The maximum number of episodes one person could vote for at a time was 10. It also entered them into a draw to win SpongeBob prizes. They could also keep voting over and over.
