ARE YOU READY KIDS? I CAN’T HEAR YOU! OOO!
SpongeBob SquarePants is a classic in children’s animation. Loved by both children and adults, the Nickelodeon show has had its fair share of hilarious moments. If you were a kid growing up in the early 2000s it’s likely you still quote SpongeBob just for the laughs. Despite its strange concept for children’s television series on its surface, SpongeBob in a lot of ways raised a whole generation of kids and affected our humor today.
The children’s series was made by marine science educator and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. Since its premiere on millions of television sets in the Summer of 1999, SpongeBob SquarePants has grown to become the fifth-longest-running American animated series in history! Its incredible popularity has made it a media franchise and has even won a variety of awards including six Annie Awards, eight Golden Reel Awards, four Emmy Awards, 19 Kids’ Choice Awards, and two BAFTA Children’s Awards.
With its sonically iconic cast of voice talent like Tom Kenny, Rodger Bumpass, Bill Fagerbakke, and Clancy Brown it’s easy to recall some of the show’s most memorable moments even today. So in celebration of SpongeBob and his nautical adventures we’ve curated a list of our favorite funny SpongeBob quotes. If we missed any of our favorites, let us know on social media!
