The "SpongeBob Closing Theme" (alternate titles: "Closing Theme Closing"; "SpongeBob SquarePants Closing Theme"; "SpongeBob SquarePants End Them Theme Closing"; "SpongeBob SquarePants End Theme Closing"; "SpongeBob SquarePants Theme"; "SpongeBob Theme- End Title") was composed by Steve Belfer. As the name suggests, it is used in the end credits of the show. The track has two versions, which have both been used as background music in some episodes. The track usually plays when someone does something repeatedly.


Version 1

In addition the the below listed instances, this version plays during the ending credits when watching episodes on most DVDs or on Demand. It is also the menu music for many of the SpongeBob SquarePants DVDs.

Version 2

Interestingly enough, this version is always used as background music and has never served as an end credits theme.
