It’s been twenty years since the first episode of Spongebob Squarepants aired on Nickelodeon, and in that time the anthropomorphic sea creature has become a household name. Apart from being one of the most successful children’s shows of all time, the series has also spurred dozens of memes, DE-vid mashups, and general internet shenanigans.
So how did this unassuming cartoon become the face of internet comedy? We turned to Spongebob voice actor Tom Kenny, the show’s former executive producer Paul Tibbit, and New York’s resident meme expert Madison Malone Kircher to find out.

This show came out a year after I was born. I remember watching this show every morning before I went to school. I miss classic Spongebob so much. It will always remind me of my childhood and back when Nickelodeon wasn't trash

6 years ago i spent a solid 30 mins going back and forth on whether or not I should buy a recreation of "Bold and Brash" at a small art show at my college, cuz $20 was a lot to spend on art at the time. I did eventually buy it because "fuck it, yolo". Hung it up first in my apartment, got a lot of compliments; moved across the country and hung it at my desk at my first job, and again, got lots of compliments on it. I've since lost it and probably once every couple of months I wonder how I could've been so careless to lose such an awesome piece. Spongebob is seriously a cultural icon.

It's simply because the show is so relatable in real-life whether you take SpongeBob or Squidward characters

I really hope that Nick doesn't pull a Disney and reclaim Spongebob in the future when he reaches the end of copyright. I think Spongebob should belong to the public.

I highly recommend everyone who sees this comment to go and check out a video by the DE-vidr EmpLemon, called "There will never ever be another show like SpongeBob SquarePants". It's a really profound analysis of why SpongeBob is such a beloved icon.

5:33 for a self proclaimed "meme expert" I don't think that could be more wrong.
Alejandro Palacios
The fact that they mention DE-vid Poops really shows how these videos were a huge influence to today's shitposts. If anything, YTP's were the precursors of shitposting before that word even existed (or had become mainstream). Very great and insightful video! Felt like a celebration of not only Spongebob, but of internet culture as a whole.

i feel like 99.9% of the spongebob memes are from season 1-3. those seasons are gold, nothing can really compare with them

The Office is definitely just as pervasive as Spongebob in memes
