The "SpongeBob SquarePants Theme Song" is the song sung at the beginning of every SpongeBob SquarePants episode. It is performed by Captain and a group of kids. Other versions have been made for special events and episodes.

The theme song sequence was produced in the middle of season one, and it was given its own production code: "127,"[1] meaning the 27th segment made for season one. A new title card for "Help Wanted," the show's pilot episode, was also made under the same 127 production code; the pilot was originally made without a production code and with an entirely different title sequence.[2]

April Fools/Rock Version

On a April 1, 2017 airing of "Funny Pants," a rock version of the theme song plays, with differences being that it is foggy, less colored and has clips from "Krabby Road." The theme returned on a March 31, 2018 airing of "Mimic Madness" and "House Worming." It played again during an April 1, 2020 rerun of "New Fish in Town" and "Love That Squid."

Trivia

Theme song production code (127)

Animation cel for the theme, labeled with its production code (127).

  • The theme song's production code is 127. It shares this code with the title card for "Help Wanted." The theme song was storyboarded between "Reef Blower" (126) and "Valentine's Day" (128).
  • Derek Drymon made a comment about the SpongeBob theme song: "Steve's idea was to try to make the most annoying song you can, to—so when Saturday morning, when kids turn the TV on and parents are trying to sleep, you have this pirate screaming in the other room for the kids to jump on the floor."
  • The song is based on the sea shanty "Blow the Man Down."
  • A carnival version of the song is heard playing in "The Krusty Sponge."
  • Captain Maggot of Emilie Autumn's musical group likes to sing this song.
  • In the version used for Square Roots version, Avril Lavigne sings it.
  • The theme song plays low-pitched rarely in airings on Nicktoons U.S.
  • A stop-motion opening with Cee-Lo Green performing the theme was seen in "Truth or Square."
  • In non-USA airings of Seasons 1-6 and early Season 7 up until "The Abrasive Side"/"Earworm" and excluding the "Legends of Bikini Bottom" episodes, an orange Nickelodeon flag logo is added to the show logo at the end of the intro.
  • In the first movie, it was a real song.
  • In The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, when Burger Beard begins reading the story to some talking seagulls, the seagulls begin to sing the theme song, but Burger Beard orders them to stop before they can finish, threatening them with death. At the end of the movie, having accepted defeat, Kyle, a younger seagull, asks him if they can sing it. They put a hat on Burger-Beard and a picture frame around him, and Burger-Beard reluctantly agrees to lead them in singing the song. The scene then becomes animated with Burger-Beard replaced by Captain, and audio from the TV version of the theme song is used.
    • At the beginning of the second movie, when the camera localizes the Bikini Atoll, the final notes from the theme song are heard.
    • Also, this final scene reveals that Burger Bear is the original performer of the theme song as the Captain or Painty the Pirate, as it could also reveal that the voice of the chorus kids are portrayed by his seagulls.
  • At the end of The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, this song plays during loving memory of Stephen Hillenburg.
  • In "Atlantis SquarePantis," when Potty calls Patchy by telephone, the final notes from the theme song can be heard as Patchy's ringtone on his mobile phone.
  • In some other countries, the intro footage is different. For instance, the French version has a bubble of SpongeBob, a face of him and his name in French too.
  • In the Albanian, European Spanish, French, Italian, Korean, and Macedonian versions, it uses footage in which no text is to be seen.
  • After season 1, the animation in season 2 was changed to digital ink and paint. Despite the transition to HD in season 9, the song remained cel-animated and in standard definition until the episode "Lame and Fortune." Starting with that episode, there was a new theme song in high definition.
  • On August 5, 2015, in tweets by Vincent Waller on Twitter, it was confirmed that a 16:9 HDTV/widescreen version of the theme song was in the works.[3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11]
    • On June 30, 2016, in a tweet by Vincent Waller, it was confirmed that the 16:9 HDTV/widescreen version of the theme song had been finished and was set to be publicly released in July 2016.[12][13][14][15]
    • On July 9, 2016, the 16:9 HDTV/widescreen version of the theme song premiered during a rerun airing of "Eek, an Urchin!" and "Squid Defense" and is now used on all widescreen episodes. The 4:3 standard definition intro is still used on pre-season 9 episodes.[16]
    • As a result, the show went a full 17 years without the 16:9 HDTV/widescreen version of the theme song from May 1, 1999 to July 2016.
  • There are at least six production images featured in the protective case of The SpongeBob SquarePants Experience: A Deep Dive into the World of Bikini Bottom.
  • The theme song has been very popular when reversed, as many have found the lyrics showing it has inappropriate lyrics in reverse.
  • Captain's first lines were lines that Stephen Hillenburg had to say to kids when he worked as a fake sailor at the Orange County Marine Institute. However, Hillenburg said, "ye," instead of "you."[17]
  • In "Sanitation Insanity," SpongeBob's holes whistle the last notes of the theme song.
  • In "Old Man Patrick," SpongeBob sang the opening part of the theme song. This also occurs in "Handemonium."
  • In "Karen's Virus," Karen sings a warped version of the theme song in her delusional state.
  • In "SpongeBob's Big Birthday Blowout," during the "Birthday Song" rendition of the theme song, SpongeBob sings "Me! Me! Me! Me!" in place of the choir saying his name in the first verse of the theme song. He also sings his own name in the final verse but his pants do not fall off like they do in the regular theme song.
