SpongeBob SquarePants - Burger King Ad "Watch Me"

High quality initial version of the short

  • This short has a brown tint.
  • This short was made to advertise SpongeBob SquarePants watches that were available with a Burger King Kids Meal at the time the first movie was released.
    • The five available watches advertised had the characters SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, or Plankton.
  • This short marks the first usage of "Lap Steel."
  • The short's name comes from SpongeBob saying, "Watch me!," while holding his eyeballs.[3]
  • Mr. Krabs noticeably sounds different between the initial and final versions. In the initial version it's clear that Clancy Brown is voicing him, while in the final version, it seems that a soundalike is voicing Mr. Krabs.
    • There's also difference between the recordings of Patrick's line "SpongeBob, watch out!," in the initial and final versions. Though unlike Mr. Krabs, Bill Fagerbakke's voice is used for both times.[2]
  • As SpongeBob enters the Krusty Krab, he is whistling the tune to the SpongeBob SquarePants theme song.
