"SpongeBob Checks His Instaclam" is a SpongeBob SquarePants Social Media short. In this short, SpongeBob checks his Instaclam.



While SpongeBob is in the Krusty Krab, he decides to check his Instaclam. Once he does so, he sees the posts of many people, such as Gary, Sandy, and Squidward, and "likes" their posts as well. Even one post was SpongeBob and Patrick goofing around, SpongeBob sees Squidward comment "Dislike" and still keeps up his cheer, as the short ends.



  • The "Laundry Day" message is an image from "To SquarePants or Not to SquarePants."
  • This is Harold and Margaret SquarePants' first appearance in a short.
  • The footage of SpongeBob holding the phone up to his face is reused from the episode "SpongeBob You're Fired" when SpongeBob reads the order at the beginning, except with a SpongeBob-style bamboo mobile phone loosely animated over the order paper.
  • Much like the SpongeBob's Nicktoon Summer Splash commercials, this short has a cheaper animation style than the actual series.

Cultural references

  • The "Rainbow Space Snail" scene is a clip from another Nick.com video, which is a parody of the popular internet meme Nyan Cat.
