Adult Wormy closeup

Wormy: Three times in the episode, the eponymous character, now grown up, gets close to somebody's face, suddenly cutting to a close up of a horsefly buzzing.

The scariness of Adult Wormy's close up has made this video and a lot of spoofs very popular. Various videos have been made that spoof of other characters being scared by adult Wormy's scary bug face, often used as a portrayal to other bugs, particularly spiders.

​Are ya' feelin' it now Mr. Krabs?

MidLife Crustacean115

"Mid-Life Crustacean:" SpongeBob and Patrick ask Mr. Krabs if they are feeling it for the Panty Raid, there is a version of this saying: "Art thou feeling it now Misiour Krabs?" One popular version is when Patrick sits on Harold.

Unfortunately this meme is almost always interpreted as being sexual and a lot of inappropriate memes came from this. However "are you feeling it now" is just Spongebob asking if Mr. Krabs feels young again.

Another version is with Mr. Krabs' (and sometimes SpongeBob's) head is replaced with Shulk from the video game Xenoblade Chronicles, who's catchphrase is "I'm really feeling it"

Assault your mind with subliminal messages

"Gary Takes a Bath:" When SpongeBob assaults Gary's mind with subliminal messages, several bath-related images appear. A rather creepy image of a chuckling girl suddenly appears, followed by SpongeBob saying "Sorry you had to see that."

Random images or scenes would replace SpongeBob's subliminal messages or only the last image would be used.

At Night

"Graveyard Shift:" SpongeBob works overtime and repeatedly says "I/I'm (action performed)... at night."

This is a popular meme and can be used for Sparta Remixes if correct.

Are There Any Other Squidwards I Should Know About

Opposite Day: The house dealer mistakes everyone for Squidward.


"Neptune's Spatula:" King Neptune is about to present SpongeBob his prize for living in Atlantis upon winning the Ultimate Cook-Off, but when he opens the cloud he shows a live-action man taking a shower instead, who reacts. Neptune apologizes and quickly changes the scene.

Some videos of this clip replace the man taking a shower with something else.

The man in the shower is actually Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob and other characters.

Big Fat Meanie

"New Student Starfish:" During class, Patrick tosses SpongeBob a picture he made, depicting a rather ugly obese-looking Mrs. Puff with the words “Big fat meanie.” When Mrs. Puff sees this, she takes on the same appearance as the drawing and says “As if I really look like this!”, then puts the picture in a drawer with other ugly pictures of her inside.

Patrick’s picture and Mrs. Puff forming into such can be replaced with various other things.

Big Meaty Claws

"Band Geeks:" After playing horribly, Harold says how the band might not sound so bad if some people (referring to Mr. Krabs) didn't try to play with big meaty claws. Mr. Krabs then grabs him and asks what he said, Harold then says "Big, Meaty, Claws!" It has been prominently featured more often in Youtube videos than as an image.




"Missing Identity:" SpongeBob is getting ready for work starting out with some trouble. He then gets some snail food and wondered what it tasted like. He tasted it only to scream "BLEH!" heard by many Bikini Bottomites.

This has become popular due to SpongeBob screaming and it creates irony, as he liked snail food in other episodes like "I was a Teenage Gary." Possibly because his taste buds and brain were infested in Snail DNA when Squidward injected him with the Snail Plasma.

Breath in Boi

Kah Rah Tay Contest: A pair of images of SpongeBob clasping his hands together and leaning over. The images are also commonly used as a reaction image to various instances of people making an unwise decision.

Bubble Bowl Performance

"Band Geeks:" Squidward's band performs at the Bubble Bowl.

One would replace Sweet Victory with a different song. It is very popular on YouTube. Clips from other SpongeBob episodes, as well as The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, are used too. Some examples would be Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen and Eye Of The Tiger by Survivor. Some use parts where characters speak rather than sing, involving characters other than SpongeBob representing the singer at some points and/or do not use clips from "Band Geeks." The meme is usually called "SpongeBob sings (song name)."

Primitive Sponge (SpongeGar)

"SB-129:" When Primitive Sponge and Primitive Starfish are electrocuting themselves with a jellyfish, Squidward (who time traveled) asked them what they were doing, with both Primitive Sponge and Starfish making surprised face.

Around May 2016, Primitive Sponge with a surprised face has become an internet meme, with his photo photoshopped into multiple scenarios (an example being "When your friend is about to pick you up and can't find your wallet," followed by a photo of Primitive Sponge pasted into a room background). He is known as "SpongeGar" in these memes, although that is a completely different character who looks similar to Primitive Sponge.

On June 4, 2016, Encyclopedia SpongeBobia administrator Squiddleward made a post on Tumblr about the meme, explaining the difference between SpongeGar and Primitive Sponge. The post quickly went viral, gaining over 20,000 notes within several hours and reaching 100,000 by the end of the month.

Fans also are attempting to make Primitive Patrick a meme and have the same purpose.

Cheap Walk Cycles

"The Sponge Who Could Fly:" Patchy the Pirate finds a tape that shows a “lost episode” of SpongeBob. At the end of the episode, he puts in the tape and finds the clip is simply a series of SpongeBob doing walk cycles to upbeat music. Once it ends, Patchy angrily says "That was just a bunch of cheap walk cycles!"

There are many different types of videos with such part, sometimes replacing the destruction of SpongeBob merchandise with other franchises or themed objects.


Chocolate with Nuts 041

"Chocolate with Nuts:" While SpongeBob and Patrick are selling chocolate, they come across an insane, chocoholic Tom at numerous times.

This has made "Chocolate with Nuts" one of the most popular SpongeBob episodes. This fad is also a very popular subject in remixes, YouTube Poops, edits, Sparta remixes, and parodies.

Confused Mr. Krabs (Mr. Krabs Blur Meme)

"Patty Hype:" A distorted image from a scene in Patty Hype that depicts Mr. Krabs as confused.

The picture originated on Twitter. The meme has also been titled as When you wake up from a nap.

Crazy Faces

"Face Freeze:" SpongeBob and Patrick put the "myth" to the test to see who can pull the face for the longest amount of time.

Crazy Talk

I Had an Accident: People have been using this as another moment of Patrick Star, due to Patrick saying "BLUGURBLABLA, BLUH BLUH BLUH, RURURURURURUH" and then him saying "sorry."



"Something Smells:" Fred (who is blue in the episode) smells SpongeBob's breath in the movie theater and makes the noise "DEUUEAUGH!" with a weird look on his face. 

This scene has become very popular on sites such as YouTube, where it has become a subject of remixes and edits. It has also appeared playing in different languages. There is also fan-made art.

Drops By Squidward's House

AT-AT Drops by Squidwards House

AT-AT Drops by Squidwards House

Have You Seen This Snail?: Squidward sees SpongeBob and Patrick searching for Gary from outside his window while taking a bath. Seconds later, SpongeBob and Patrick break into Squidward's bathroom and cause him to scream continuously.

This scene has become a very popular meme on YouTube. It would involve characters from video games to TV shows (including other memes), to pop stars and politicians, even inanimate objects breaking into Squidward's bathroom; causing Squidward to scream. The scream is then looped in reverse. The meme is usually known as "(Name) Drops By Squidward's House." This is popular in Sparta Remixes on YouTube.

Drown in it!

"Dying for Pie:" Upon realizing SpongeBob may inevitably die from the pie bomb he gave to him, Squidward vows that he will make SpongeBob's last few hours the very best, so much that SpongeBob will be loved so much that he'll "drown in it," as Squidward says.

His unusually happy emotion gains quite a lot of popularity. It is also used in some YouTube Poops.

Dumb Old Texas

Texas: SpongeBob and Patrick insult Texas, which angers Sandy. She then gives chase on their way to the Krusty Krab.

This scene has become a very popular meme on YouTube. The meme is usually known as "Dumb Old Texas but (Edit)".

Even Squidward misses you!

"Nature Pants:" While Patrick and Sandy are having a picnic at Jellyfish Fields, they spotted SpongeBob. The two convinced him to return. In addition, Patrick said "Even Squidward misses you!"

Every Villain Is Lemons

"Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V:" Man Ray, the Dirty Bubble, and Barnacle Man have named their new alliance "EVIL," an acronym meaning "Every Villain Is Lemons".

This has become very popular with YouTube Poops due to its inappropriate nature. It has also sometimes been replaced with another acronym that is more inappropriate, or just makes no sense like ABAP (As Balla as Possible).


Mermaid Man2

"Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy:" Every time someone mentions there is evil afoot, an obsessive Mermaid Man runs around, screaming "evil!" continuously.

Various scenes would be put in place for the "evil afoot," such as the atomic explosion. In addition, viewers sometimes mimic this line.




"Frankendoodle:" SpongeBob and Patrick find a pencil, and find out that anything drawn with it comes to life. They then draw another SpongeBob named DoodleBob. He then beats up Squidward. SpongeBob realized they have to get rid of him. He then uses the pencil to draw a bowling ball and rolls it at Patrick. Patrick turns into a bowling pin, and gets knocked over. SpongeBob says "You Okay Patrick?” and Patrick screams "FINLAND!” As well as that, "Finland" is briefly heard in "Accidents Will Happen" and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.

This has become popular on YouTube to Patrick's loud screaming of it.

Free form jazz

Grandma's Kisses: Patrick tells SpongeBob he must acquire a taste for free-form jazz. This meme may also be based on the APM track Pressure Point.




"SB-129:" Squidward finds out he is 2000 years in the future, making him lie down and yell "FUTURRRE!" The scene reappears during the song When Worlds Collide, in "Ugh."

This has been used on YouTube with usually a loop of Squidward saying "FUTURRRE!" example being 10 minutes or just about 20 seconds.

Gah! I love being purple!

Spyro Loves Being Purple

An example of the meme, with one showing Spyro the Dragon.

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie: Patrick says the phrase.

Someone will take an image or video of a purple character and have the line being said. Mostly used with Barney (from the show "Barney and Friends").



Dying for Pie: Near the end of the episode, Squidward tells SpongeBob that he was supposed to explode. Therefore, SpongeBob "explodes" by yelling "Gary, you are gonna finish your dessert, and you are gonna like it!”

This quote has quickly become popular and is used throughout the Internet. It also gained several remixes, spoofs, and videos of people imitating SpongeBob's quote.

Handsome Squidward

Main article: Handsome Squidward
The Two Faces of Squidward: After SpongeBob hits the door on Squidward several times, he has become more handsome than before. SpongeBob then shoves Squidward out of the way, and he looks as if he is dancing.

This image has become very popular in edits, remixes, and numerous YouTube videos. It has also been parodied by fan-made art of other characters impersonating the handsome face.

Squidward's "dancing" has also become popular on YouTube, and videos will usually show him dancing to different songs or music.

Holographic meatloaf

In the episode The Algae's Always Greener Karen synthesizes holographic meatloaf for Plankton to eat. Being a hologram, Plankton can not eat it and he bangs the table in anger. The meatloaf is usually replaced with another item in these memes and sometimes Plankton's voice is changed or swapped to say what he is looking at.

Holographic meme

Have a Bowl Mr. Squidward!

In the SpongeBob parody short meant to advertise SpongeBob's cereal made by the YouTuber known as Fried Chili Cheese Dogs: an instance where Mr. Krabs says "Have a bowl Mr. Squidward!" And throws a glass bowl full of the cereal at him, only for Squidward (and the bowl) to fall off the table and spill on the floor, the scene, as well as the video have become extremely popular on YouTube. It can be paired with "Oh, yeah, Mr. Krabs!" meme like in some fake Nick bumpers that The Remaster claimed as "real."

A video with just the HAVE A BOWL part:

Hey Plankton!

Hey Plankton

Krabby Road: SpongeBob asks Plankton if their first song can go like this (making loud siren-like music with his voice) and then turn into one of the songs that goes... (Making a high-pitched screech), much to Plankton's discomfort.

Segments of music from songs and/or random sound effects would replace the sounds made by SpongeBob's voice.

Hi, how are ya?

Hi how are ya

"Not Normal:" After SpongeBob watches a video on how to be normal, he begins emulating the personality of the person featured in the video, Mr. Normal. A commonly said phrase by SpongeBob during his "normal" phase is, "Hi, how are ya?"

This has become popular among YouTube remixes and reactions used in Tumblr quotes.


Krusty Krab Training Video: The narrator explains all the rules of the Krusty Krab to SpongeBob in order for him to make a Krabby Patty. At one point, he said, "Sounds like a lot of..." and was cut off by an annoying fish who kept yelling "HOOPLA." Eventually, a brick knocked out the fish.

This has become popular with Sparta remixes.

I Don't Need It

Tea at the Treedome: SpongeBob stares and wonders whether he needs water. This is one of the SpongeBob image macros.

I Have No Soul!


Just One Bite: SpongeBob tells Squidward that the Krabby Patty is good for his soul, to which Squidward states he has no soul. At that moment, evil laughter is heard as fire appears in the background behind Squidward. Then, Squidward gets shocked as the background returns to normal, and slowly walks away.

The video has become famous, and can be redone into Sparta remixes. Also, some fan-made videos recreate the scene.

I Love You

Chocolate With Nuts: SpongeBob tells Patrick to flatter the next customer to make him feel better so he would buy their chocolate bars. When they arrive at the customer's house, Patrick says "I Love You," and the customer immediately shuts the door.

This is a very popular fad on YouTube. It has been featured numerous times in Sparta remixes and memes such as "Can You Survive the (number of minutes) of I Love you".

I Put SpongeBob Music Over

I Put SpongeBob Music Over is a meme using the APM track Tomfoolery, and putting it over videos or scenes in movies or cartoons. The music is usually is used in tense or saddening scenes. More APM tracks started to get used when the meme grew popular such as Grass Skirt Chase.


Mimic Madness 021

Mimic Madness: After laughing at SpongeBob's imitations, Tom yells at his kids, telling them to eat their Krabby Patties.

This meme has become popular and has been used frequently in earrape (the process of increasing the volume and bass boost of a clip.)

I surrender!

Krab Borg: SpongeBob, following the "scary robot movie," becomes paranoid at work. He hears the grill go off and, thinking he has found by the robots, lifts his arms up and says "I surrender!" before realizing the truth.

I'm ready. Depression.

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie: SpongeBob depressed "I'm ready... Depression."

Something Smells: SpongeBob screaming "I'M UGLY AND I'M PROUD!!!"                  


Idiot Box: This meme involves the photo of SpongeBob spreading his hands, forming a rainbow, saying "Ima-gin-ation!" to talk to Squidward about imagination. It happens throughout the episode.

This has become very popular on fads, memes, and YTPs and is often called “Imagination.” The most popular image associated with it is SpongeBob saying, "Nobody Cares" instead.

Inappropriate Timing SpongeBob Banner

Inappropriate Timing SpongeBob Banner is a meme based on a Nickelodeon bumper featuring SpongeBob. Occurring on May 12, 2012, on "And the Winner Is...," the sixth episode of The Legend of Korra it has become incredibly popular by being turned into a GIF on a Tumblr blog.

The banner would appear onscreen during an emotional scene of a TV series or movie, to mock poorly timed cross-promo ads during broadcasting. SpongeBob's expression combined with the drama of the scene would often make viewers joke about SpongeBob being mean.

Interpretive Dancing


In "Culture Shock," Squidward attempts to please the crowd watching him by dancing. He dances from a classical song with singing birds and dry cliffs to immediately and suddenly changing into some sort of techno music and weird dancing. Squidward's dancing in the techno part is pretty popular.

It has returned in the credits of "The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water," where the "colorful ending credits" is slowly coming to an end.

Is Mayonnaise an Instrument?

Is mayonaise an instrument

Is mayonnaise an instrument?

Band Geeks: Patrick asks Squidward if mayonnaise is an instrument.

The scene has become a classic meme on the Internet, with Patrick saying: "Is __ an Instrument?" and Squidward responds, "No Patrick, __ is not an instrument," having the word mayonnaise being replaced by another random word. This has become VERY popular in remixes & edits.

Occasionally, "instrument" may be replaced with a different word to show any type of logical confusion in a given context.

It Took SpongeBob to Master This

Naughty Nautical Neighbors: SpongeBob crudely plays Squidward's "bassinet" and destroys it in rage. It goes like this:

  • SpongeBob: Give me an A, buddy.
  • (Squidward blows an A on the clarinet)
  • SpongeBob: Squidward is my best friend in the worrrrrrld.
  • SpongeBob: Squidward is my best friend in the seeeeaa.
  • Squidward: AHHH! GRRRRR!
  • SpongeBob: Squidward-
  • Patrick: Likes Patrick more than Spongebob.
  • SpongeBob: And Patrick is a DIRTY, STINKY, ROTTEN FRIEND STEALER! Uhh, I can fix this.

This meme was usually named "It Took SpongeBob [amount of time] to Master this," e.g. if it is a movie theme, the number is the year of the movie being released.

It's a giraffe!

Bubblestand: Patrick laughs at a floating elephant bubble that SpongeBob blew, then he says "It's a giraffe!."

This meme has gained popularity due to being obviously factually incorrect.

It's not just a boulder, it's a rock!

Pizza Delivery: SpongeBob notices a giant rock that he claims the "pioneers" drove for miles. Squidward is incredulous at this claim and tries to tell SpongeBob to forget about the pioneers, saying that there are none left because of their unusual traveling methods. However, he quickly changes his mind after SpongeBob runs him over with the rock and he chases after him for a ride. With the giant rock, they drive it all the way to the customer's house. The scene grew with photoshopped images and video parodies.

Just like a genie!

Like a Genie

Just like a Genie!

Christmas Who?: When SpongeBob talks about Santa Claus, he states whatever you tell him that you want, he will bring it to you. Patrick remarks it is like what a genie does, and swoons.

The video can be parodied, and some viewers sometimes mimic Patrick.

Leedle Leedle Leedle Lee!


Shanghaied: When the Flying Dutchman tells SpongeBob and Patrick to howl along with him, so they could "set the seven seas ablaze with fear," instead of howling, Patrick just says "Leedle Leedle Leedle lee" much to the Dutchman's annoyance.

The meme will show how long Patrick says "Leedle Leedle Leedle lee" for a certain amount of time. Also in the early versions of the Slender The Eight Pages called SpongeBob Slendypants, a free to play indie horror.

Livin' Like Larry

A Life in a Day: SpongeBob and Patrick are given life advice by Larry the Lobster, using this quote various times in the episode as they perform dangerous stunts.

This quote is often associated with Larry the Lobster and is quite popular on the internet, sometimes being compared to YOLO (You Only Live Once). 


Look at it!

Look at it!

Something Smells: Patrick announces to everyone if they cannot see ugly in the face, so he holds SpongeBob up for everyone to see, causing everyone to run away.

Several videos would replace SpongeBob with something else; this also happens in the 3-column view shot of SpongeBob being held and Patrick shouting.

Mermaid Manacle Boy Unite!

Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy VI: The Motion Picture: At the end of SpongeBob's "film," Mermaid Man tries to say "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy Unite!" However, due to the camera, it skips the "and Barn" part, making it read "Mermaid Manacle Boy Unite!"

The video can be used for memes, and can be used for Sparta remixes if correct.

Moar Krabs

Moar Krabs

Jellyfish Hunter: When Mr. Krabs keeps saying "More" to tell SpongeBob to collect more jellyfish, a monster-like image of Mr. Krabs briefly appears.

This is probably the most popular SpongeBob meme to date. The hideous image is widely known as Moar Krabs or Morbid Krabs, and has appeared in a large number of fads, edits, and other Internet videos. It has been seen on YouTube Poops many times. It sometimes has captions saying something like MOAR in the caption.

Mocking SpongeBob


When the referee calls you out in soccer.

Little Yellow Book: It is revealed that when SpongeBob sees plaid, he clucks like a chicken. This leads Squidward and a fish to make this occur, while Mr. Krabs (who is wearing the plaid) tells SpongeBob that he doesn't "need to rub it in," thinking SpongeBob is mocking him, and leaves.

Despite the context, the meme pertains closer to Mr. Krabs' take on the subject; it features SpongeBob "mocking" a specified text (which is actually more related to the plot of "Mimic Madness" instead of "Little Yellow Book"), and is written in toggle case. The meme started to become popular in early 2017, and is usually associated with text written in uppercase and lowercase letters. It is considered the most popular SpongeBob meme of the present day.

Morbid Patrick

Life of Crime: When Patrick accuses SpongeBob of eating his chocolate bar, a chocolate-stained close-up of his face is shown saying "You took my only food. Now I'm gonna starve," then showing his distorted body.

This image is usually known as Morbid Patrick and has become popular in remixes and edits. In addition, there is a similar image of what appears to be Patrick Star with a human-like structure, which is actually from the 1993 film Coneheads.

My sandwich tastes like a fried boot/My sandwich is a fried boot

Hooky: A customer claims his sandwich tastes like a fried boot, then another one claims his sandwich IS a fried boot.

Morbid SpongeBob

Ugliest spongebob

What Ever Happened to SpongeBob?: SpongeBob wanders New Kelp City wondering why he could not get any jobs. He meets a random fish and says, "Look at me, mister! Look at me! Is there something wrong with me?” An extremely disturbing close-up of SpongeBob's face appears, with a snot bubble blowing out of his nose. The fish then screams and runs away.

This image has become popular in remixes and edits. Another hideous face would cover SpongeBob's, such as Skodwarde's.

Mr. Krabs Plays the World's Smallest Violin

Worlds Smallest Violin

Worlds Smallest Violin

Squilliam Returns: Mr. Krabs plays the violin numerous times in the episode as a running gag.

Although it is not as popular as other fads, Mr. Krabs plays the World's Smallest Violin . The memes are mostly an extended version of the song he is playing, called “Woe is me.” It could also be played at different speeds.

My eyes!

My eyes!

"My eyes!"

In The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, Fred is seen yelling, "My eyes!" after King Neptune reveals his temporarily bald head.

This meme is used to express a dramatic statement, as shown with the burning eyes of Fred.

My Leg!

Running Gag My Leg

Running Gag My Leg

Main article: My leg!

It is a SpongeBob SquarePants fad involving Fred yelling "My Leg!" in several episodes. This quote was prominent during the first two seasons, but then disappeared for seven years until it was heard again in "Krusty Krushers" and "Shuffleboarding," and referenced in "Squid Baby." It even made an appearance in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water and since has been used on regular basis. There is also an episode dedicated to this gag.

This quote has spawned much popularity, as well as other quotes (such as "My Eyes!" from The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie) said by the same fish. In fact, this was the same fish that was featured in the "DEUUEAUGH!" fad, only with a different color.

My name's not RICK!

My names not rick


The Fry Cook Games: SpongeBob and Patrick fight. SpongeBob attempts to erase some of his nametag, erasing Pat, making "Rick." Patrick then yells "NOOOO! MY NAME'S.... NOT... RIIIIIIIIIIIIIICK!”

This has become very popular to Sparta remixes due to Patrick yelling it out for an extended period.

No! This is Patrick!

Big Pink Loser: When Patrick answers the phone each time, customers ask him "Is this the Krusty Krab?” he responds, "No, this is Patrick!".

It is a very popular Internet meme on YouTube, especially due to its huge similarity to the "This is Sparta!" meme from the film "300".

Not When I Shift into Maximum Overdrive

Oh no, he's hot!

Squilliam Returns: Squilliam wants to hear what Squidward has accomplished since high school. Panicking, Squidward tries not to be intimidated and decides to picture him in his underwear but when he does so, Squilliam is imagined as a hot underwear model. Squidward then says in his head, "Oh, no, he's hot!"

Sometimes another picture would replace the part where Squilliam appears to be an underwear model. Various other shows and animations can also be remade into this scene.

Oh Yeah Mr. Krabs

This video meme started when an internet video was posted, which showed a man playing The Game of Life (SpongeBob Edition). He was holding the Mr. Krabs character and bouncing it up and down on top of the board, where he yelled only four words "Oh, yeah! Mr. Krabs!" The video has gotten over 7 million views and it is regularly heard in vines and remixes.

Rock-a-Bye Bivalve 71

Rock-a-Bye Bivalve: Patrick goes back to "work" and SpongeBob angrily follows him returning Patrick's briefcase filled with sundaes and donuts, in which he dumps all over Patrick. Patrick then says, "So, this is the thanks I get for working overtime?"

This has become very popular with edits, remixes, Sparta Remixes, and YouTube Poops.

Patrick Catches the Ugly

Something Smells: When SpongeBob confronts Patrick in a bathroom stall with a paper bag covering his head, Patrick takes off the paper bag and points at his face, saying he got the ugly and making SpongeBob cringe.

As soon as Patrick takes off his paper bag, a random, usually hideous, creepy, or funny face covers Patrick's original face. A specific example would be using Skodwarde's face placed on Patrick's face.

Patrick Hates This Channel

Squidville: When Squidward's TV turns on, a spokesoctopus (parody of a spokesperson) reveals information on Tentacle Acres. Patrick then changes the channel saying, "I hate this channel."

This has become a very popular meme on YouTube. Replacing the spokesoctopus on the TV screen would be a random scene from a movie, TV show, game, or other thing, even the scene where Squidward looks at the TV repeating and repeating like a recursive image. The meme is usually known, as "Patrick hates (noun).”

Patrick Makes Squidward Kiss the Pickle

Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy IV: Squidward has shrunk and Patrick plays with Squidward. In this scene, he decided that Squidward might be more comfortable loving people his own size, so he suggested a pickle would do. He says that Squidward and the pickle "love each other," when in reality Squidward is against kissing the pickle. Patrick then bangs the pickle against Squidward multiple times whilst making smooching sounds, imitating a simulation of Squidward "kissing" the pickle.

This meme has gained popularity for being hilariously inappropriately done. Some common remakes include long-hour versions of the original scene and also ones featuring Pickle Rick from the TV show Rick and Morty.

Real Life Explosion

  • Dying for Pie: When SpongeBob pulled out an explosive pie (revealing that he never even ate it). He was waiting to share it with Squidward. But, he trips over a rock, thus flinging the pie in Squidward's face. Causing an explosion destroying Bikini Bottom.

  • Frozen Face-Off: Plankton tries to get the formula, when the safe proves to be nearly indestructible, he wants to rip it up, bit by bit, molecule by molecule, and atom by atom. He snaps them in half. When the atoms snapped, they glowed while Plankton said "Uh-oh!" The explosion happens, destroying the Krusty Krab once again.

This has become very popular with YouTube Poops, and edited versions of the episodes due to their violent nature. SpongeBob Explosions were the inspiration of this meme. The "Dying for Pie" version is the most commonly used version. This also might have been a real life nuclear explosion of the bomb Baker in the 1950's on Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands located in the Pacific Ocean.

Many people began applying edits to the image (see below).

Squidward fad


An example of the Squidward fad, containing the original image.

The Squidward Fad (aka Ward Fad) is perhaps one of the most popular SpongeBob fads. Images of Squidward Tentacles (or another character) are altered using different visual effects while Gentle Breeze (music used in Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2) is played in the background. This fad has been used with other images of many different characters (such as Moar Krabs or Skodwarde), even with characters outside SpongeBob SquarePants.

The original video contained an image from the episode "Prehibernation Week," in the scene where Sandy goes to the Krusty Krab to start a search for SpongeBob, and Squidward is pleased to hear that he is gone. A video of this fad is usually named "(name) Ward," or sometimes given another strange name in accordance to the character's name.

The meme usually features Smitty's long and unusual name replacing other names in internet memes and YouTube videos. Sometimes Smitty's grave is portrayed as a internet meme where Mr. Krabs defiles his grave for money. (Example below)

Squidward's Patty

Squidward's patty

The Algae's Always Greener: An angered Nat who said, "You think this is funny?", visits “Mr.” Plankton. Plankton responded yes in a sarcastic way. Nat then showed him a so-called "Krabby Patty" that Squidward made (because he and SpongeBob switched jobs). Plankton started by saying, "What it's just an ordinary Krabby..." However, he takes one look at it and exclaims "OH MY GOODNESS! SQUIDWARD!"

This has become popular with YouTube videos, and occasionally becomes part of an edited video. More often, part of the video is edited to suit the given reason for the video, with different characters and objects portraying different things: Nat as the complainer, the Squidward Krabby Patty as the bad object or event, Plankton as the scapegoat of the bad object or event, and Squidward as the real owner or cause of the bad object or event.

Squidward Tortellini

The Great Snail Race: Squidward gets a purebred snail named Snellie, and entered her in a race, only for her to lose to a rock for unknown reasons. The rock happened to be Patrick’s snail. However, Patrick had the trophy engraved to Squidward. However, it misspelled his last name as "Tortellini."

This has become popular due to Squidward yelling Tortellini (a pasta dish that is stuffed with meat and cheese and then rolled and formed into small rings), also because it was a running gag throughout the episode with people mispronouncing Squidward's last name.

Steppin' on the Beach

Walking Small: This meme shows SpongeBob walking and saying "Steppin' on the Beach!".
Everyday I'm Steppin' on the Beach

Everyday I'm Steppin' on the Beach

This has been used to make some parodies of it on YouTube in Sparta Remixes as well as some 10 hour videos about it.

A popular video featuring Party Rock Anthem replacing "every day I'm shufflin" with everyday I'm steppin on the beach probably contributed to its popularity.

Another edit of the scene is "Lying Coldly On The Beach," which also incorporated parts from the episodes Krusty Krab Training Video (The announcer's introduction of the Krabby Patty) and Krusty Towers (The building's collapse).

Surprised/Starstruck Patrick

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie: SpongeBob and Patrick lose their Patty Mobile. However, in the future, users will create another version of this meme, which is Surprised SpongeBob, albeit it was SpongeBob this time. It was referenced again in the episode "Scavenger Pants."

Tough SpongeBob


I only cried for 20 minutes

No Weenies Allowed: SpongeBob tries to get into a stereotypically tough club known as The Salty Spitoon with his friend, Sandy.

"Karate Choppers": When SpongeBob and Sandy are fighting, Sandy pulls out SpongeBob's tongue and is about to pour Volcano Sauce on SpongeBob's tongue.

SpongeBob gives up and Sandy drinks the whole volcano sauce bottle.

W​ee Woo, Wee Woo

Hall Monitor: This is supposed to be Patrick's siren when he acts as a police cop. While searching for the culprit, he goes "Wee woo, wee woo, wee woo, wee woo, wee woo" rather scaredly. When he suddenly found the culprit, who turns out to be SpongeBob, he immediately shouts "Wee woo, wee woo, wee woo!."

This meme has gained popularity due to the weird way of imitating a police car. In several memes, Patrick's "wee woo" sounds are voiced over actual emergency vehicles, especially police cars. More often, the original scene is used but is modified so that the "maniac" is replaced with a different character or person, as well as replacing SpongeBob with that different character.

He then uses the computer to bash the dollar bill.

This meme has been popular in animated versions of the scene and also for old computer memes such as videos of bashing, usually, a computer with one of the "worst" operating systems installed on it (although a lot of popular ones will target the more popular or "overrated" operating systems or place a video on the computer, most that are inappropriate).

Sandy, SpongeBob, and the Worm: When the citizens are worried about the giant worm, they talk about a number of ways to protect themselves. Patrick says, "We should take Bikini Bottom and push it somewhere else!"

The meme is quite versatile, but everyone follows the same model; on the top it says "We should x" and on the bottom it says "and y" The following seven pictures are examples of this meme, although one of them works differently from the normal model.
