Coral TV is a popular SpongeBob scene that is well known for being controversial.
SpongeBob is seen in his house watching TV. The show he is watching appears to be a live action recording of a piece of coral or sea anemone dancing. SpongeBob looks closer at the TV, just as Gary comes into the scene. SpongeBob quickly changes to the sports channel while laughing nervously and saying, "I was just looking for the sports channel, Gary!" It might be hinted that the show that he was watching was embarrassing or inappropriate. After this, the scene ends.
- A commercial for the Season 2 Box Set features this scene at the very beginning.
- The live action video of the sea anemone was also used in future episodes, such as Rise and Shine.
- This is a short scene taken from the episode Your Shoe's Untied.
- It is assumed that SpongeBob may have been watching the equivalent of an Adult Movie.
