Spongebob : 7 useless anecdotes to know about the cartoon

Spongebob is in mourning. It was learned on Tuesday 27 November, Stephen Hillenburg – his dad died at 57 years of age died from the disease of Charcot. A real loss for the world of animation, as he has been able to revolutionize this universe with his imagination. And to celebrate his work and his work, we offer you a few useless anecdotes but cool.

A beautiful irony

Place of worship of the series, the Krusty Krab restaurant where Bob, has an amazing architecture and brilliantly ironic. And for good reason, the property of Mr. Krabs is a… record used to capture the lobsters. A new proof that, with Mr. Krabs, nothing is lost and everything is transformed, and a pretty foot of nose to the fishermen.

A crown glaucous

Who said that spongebob was a cartoon for children ? In the episode “I’m your biggest fan” of season 2, the creators are allowed a joke, absolutely disgusting. Willing to do anything to join the club of fishermen, jellyfish, led by Kevin the Sea Cucumber, his hero, Bob eventually became the leader at the end. How ? Seeing his new friends to retrieve the crown of Kevin and drop it on the head Bob.

The twist ? This crown was not a crown but an actual part of the body of Kevin (seen also cry). But this is not all, biologists know, this part of the body of the Sea Cucumber is in fact… his anus. In other words : Bob was the anus of Kevin at the end of the episode.

And jokes at the hidden meaning, there are plenty in the series. We can mention the moment when Bob hides under the sand and where Mr. Krabs, seeing his nose which exceeds, wonders if it’s his nose, or this time where Bob says that it is important not to drop his soap in the shower at the risk of being surprised…

A human experience ?

And if the spongebob characters were alive/able to speak only through a human experience ? If the question can surprise, it deserves nevertheless to be posed. In fact, Bikini Bottom is located just below the Bikini atoll, which actually exists in the archipelago of the Marshall Islands. This name means nothing to you ? Yet it is at this place that an atomic bomb launched by the USA, has exploded during a test in 1946.

A history of copyright

Incredible but true, Sponge Bob could never be called like that. Originally, the cartoon of Nickelodeon was to be called… SpongeBoy (The boy sponge in VF). A title much less stylish which has finally been abandoned for a very specific reason : it was already copyrighted by… a brand of mops. The fate does well things.

A pro-life underwater

Stephen Hillenburg, the dad of Bob, did not create this series for nothing. Well before you delve into the world of animation and give life to Bob, he was a marine biologist, full-time and taught regularly the underwater life at the famous Ocean Institute. Translation : the sluice gate on the anus of the sea cucumber was clearly voluntary…

An old sponge

Small details that are unnecessary but still cool to know, in one episode of the series can be seen in close-up, the driver’s license of Bob. The interest ? We then discovered that his date of birth which is none other than… the July 14, 1986. Yes, Bob is supposed to be 32 years old today. Look ancient.

A laugh special

The laugh of Sponge Bob is one of the most memorable of the series. But do you know how it is born ? In VO, Tom Kenny – its doubler, is simply fun to give small blows to the throat at the same time he was laughing to play with the sound. Simple, efficient, and as dumb cool as Bob.
