The "SpongeBob Closing Theme" was composed by Steve Belfer. The track has two versions, which have both been used as background music in some episodes.

Usage outside of credits

Version 1

This version plays during the ending credits of the show. 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.


  • This track plays at 117 beats per minute.
  • In Japan, it is replaced with the Japanese ending after the episode ends, although the credits theme plays in Japanese dubs of episodes if one lives in Japan.
  • SpongeBob hums the tune to this track while walking to Mr. Krabs' office in "Krabs vs. Plankton."
    • He also whistles the tune while he's sitting at the table in "Breakin'."
  • The second version was played at the Spongebob panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2015, this marks the first usage of the second version since "Truth or Square." Although it was -1.5 semitones in pitch.
  • "Truth or Square" is the only special episode to use this music.
