Song

The SpongeBob SquarePants Theme Song is the intro used at the beginning of every SpongeBob SquarePants episode. It is performed by the 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; the production code was shared with a new version of the pilot episode, "Help Wanted," which included a different title card among other minor tweaks. The pilot was originally made without a production code and with an entirely different title sequence.[2]

April Fool's Day/Rock Version

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

Patrick_Seastar_(FULL_THEME_SONG)_-_SpongeBob_SquarePants

Patrick Seastar (FULL THEME SONG) - SpongeBob SquarePants

Trivia

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 broadcast version of "Help Wanted." The theme song was storyboarded between "Reef Blower" (126) and "Valentine's Day" (128).
  • An orchestra version of the theme song is play in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade every since 2014.

Backstage Pants (DVD Special Feature - 2002)

The Nickelodeon logo seen on top of the show’s logo for non-USA airings of Seasons 1-6 and early Season 7 episodes

  • 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 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 the 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 Beard is the original performer of the theme song as the Captain or Painty the Pirate, meaning the chorus of children might have been his seagulls all along.
20200814 185840.jpg
  • At the end of The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, the ending of the song plays during the "In Memory of Stephen Hillenburg" message.
  • In "Atlantis SquarePantis," when Potty calls Patchy by telephone, the final notes from the theme song can be heard as Patchy's ringtone.
  • 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, including a portion where SpongeBob jumps between rocks and cliffs rather than his name in massive font.
  • 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 digitally-animated theme song in high definition.
NEW_SPONGEBOB_INTRO

NEW SPONGEBOB INTRO

  • 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]
    • Nearly a year later 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.
    • 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.
  • This song was also featured in the online game Nick Jr. Radio for some reason.
  • 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 the backwards lyrics sound inappropriate to some people.

The lyrics as they were originally written by Derek Drymon.[16]

  • 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 used the Early Modern English, "ye," instead of the more contemporary "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.
  • In "Krusty Koncessionaires," SpongeBob plays his nose as a flute similarly to how he does in the theme song.
  • A different seagull sound effect, captain, and group of children is heard in Employee of the Month, the console version of Revenge of the Flying Dutchman, and the original console version of Battle for Bikini Bottom. The voices behind the captain and children are unknown. Battle for Bikini Bottom's remake restored the series' audio.
  • In the "Who Lives in a banana under the sea?" variant, the word "banana" is pronounced in a "bah-nah-nah" instead of the American pronunication.
