    Original title card.

  • "Tea at the Treedome" - According to the book, when SpongeBob tells Patrick that Sandy has a hat full of air, Patrick asks "A hat full of hair?" Then later, SpongeBob and Patrick went to Squidward's front yard and SpongeBob takes some flowers for Sandy from it, then Squidward opens the window and yells at SpongeBob. In the Polish airing however, Patrick does mention something about hair. He says, 'Myślisz, że ona tleni sobie włosy?' which translates to 'Do you think that she oxygenates her hair?'
    • There was an original title card with different background and font color. It has been made but never shown on TV.

  • "Plankton!" - According to the Season 1 DVD commentary, a scene involving Squidward being naked was cut because of nudity. Despite this, Squidward has been seen naked in later episodes such as "The Paper" and "Bossy Boots." The title was also originally going to be called "Deep Cover." Also, the scene where Plankton says "Come back here, you swine!" is sometimes cut because the word "swine" is offensive in certain countries.

  • "Naughty Nautical Neighbors"- In early Polish airings, the scene where Squidward chokes on the fork was cut due to its violent content. Also, in the chapter book, there was a part where SpongeBob went to his closet finding what to wear before going to Squidward's house. This was never aired on television for unknown reasons. [citation needed]

Nick Greece SpongeBob Pizza Delivery Deleted Phrase "Oh, my aching tentacles!"

  • "Pizza Delivery" - At the end of the episode, Squidward's line "Oh, my aching tentacles!" was cut in some countries by mistake (due to the screen going black when the line is said). It is also cut on the Nicktoons Collection Volume One Game Boy Advance cartridge. It is still intact on the DVD releases. Somewhere in 2013, it was also deleted from Polish and Greek airings. In the US, the line eventually returned to the episode, but only on Nicktoons airings. It seems that as of very recent airings (2016), this line has been cut in UK airings. It is also cut in the Turkish, Kurdish, and Zaza versions.

  • Polish censor in Jellyfish Jam (initial airings only)00:29

    Polish censor in Jellyfish Jam (initial airings only)

  • "Jellyfish Jam" - In early Polish airings, the scene where SpongeBob does the jellyfish dance was cut, most likely to prevent seizures due to the quick flashing lights and stroboscopic effects. The title card is cut in airings starting from mid 2012. Everything still remains intact on Nicktoons.
  • "Sandy's Rocket" - According to the book, there was a scene at the end of the episode with Sandy capturing SpongeBob as a punishment before she flies the rocket back to Bikini Bottom. This could not have actually happened, as the rocket had run out of fuel before landing on the Moon. Also, there were two other scenes involving SpongeBob and Patrick capturing Plankton stealing a Krabby Patty and Pearl at the mall. These scenes were made, but never aired on TV for unknown reasons.
  • "Nature Pants" - A scene showing SpongeBob being nearly naked was cut, though his bottom was covered, but was deleted due to nudity references. [citation needed]
  • "Opposite Day" - In the Indonesian version, SpongeBob and Patrick ask the riddle "Why did the chicken cross the road?" normally, as opposed to saying it backwards in the original episode. [citation needed]

Italian censorship for Suds00:20

Italian censorship for Suds

  • "Suds" - In Bahasa Indonesia, all the live-action parts are cut. Also, the scene where Patrick is with SpongeBob on a torture bed was cut from reruns in some countries since it looked like Patrick was torturing SpongeBob, though it is kept in Canada, US and UK airings. In Italy, the entire ending part (starting from the live action "sponge treatment" scene) is removed and replaced with a still of the hospital from the outside, followed by the scene where SpongeBob says "I feel as good as new! I love the doctor!" and then fading to black before cutting to the ending credits.
  • "Valentine's Day" - In the Dutch broadcast, the man who asks Patrick the time gets an answer "3:15" instead of Patrick yelling, "Patrick needs love too!" Reportedly, there's also a deleted scene of SpongeBob and Sandy kissing, this was probably cut due to inappropriate content. [citation needed]
  • "The Paper" - There is a scene where SpongeBob uses the paper as a flip book with the sound of Squidward saying what he said about the paper earlier on in the episode. Afterwards, SpongeBob says "Wanna see it again?" and Squidward replies "No, I don't wanna see it again!" This was later cut from reruns in certain countries for unknown reasons, although it was probably due to time constraints. [citation needed]
  • "Arrgh!" - Right after SpongeBob says, "Hey! Mr. Krabs is getting all sweaty again!," there is a deleted scene that shows a vision of Mr. Krabs sitting atop and sniffing a pile of treasure.[1]
  • "Texas" - In some countries, the scene where SpongeBob tells Patrick his "genius is showing" was removed, because of it sounding like SpongeBob was referring to genitalia and Patrick promptly covering his crotch. [citation needed] The scene is completely intact in US and UK airings, as well as on DVD releaseFools in "pril- There was a scene when Squidward spoke to Sandy first before he spoke
  • "Neptune's Spatula" - The scene where Tom Kenny is seen showering was cut in Italy.

    Polish censorship in Hooky (initial airings only)

  • "Hooky" - The original airing apparently had a dead fish whose shoes are seen being strung up. This was removed either due to time or death, and replaced with a scene where only the dead fish's shoes are seen.[citation needed] Also, in the early Polish, UK, Norwegian airings, the scene where Patrick eats the cheese off the hook, (The UK Version still has that scene.) and has all hooks in his mouth was cut for unknown reasons.

Season 2

  • "Your Shoe's Untied" - In some countries, the scene involving SpongeBob watching Coral TV was removed for looking like he is watching something inappropriate. It is still left intact in the US, UK, and Turkey airings.
  • "Squid's Day Off" - The scene where SpongeBob's trying to grab Mr. Krabs' hand from the sink was cut in the Indonesian airings for unknown reasons, possibly due to sexual references.
  • "Something Smells" - Due to an error, some lines were messed up on The Complete 2nd Season DVD release. It had SpongeBob saying "I just don't get it" to the building instead of "Hi building" and Patrick says, "I don't either." This also happens on the VHS of Nautical Nonsense and the DVD of Nautical Nonsense and Sponge Buddies. The line error happens in all Polish, Canadian, Australian, and UK airings. Also, a DVD commentary said Squidward had a deleted line at the end of the episode. He said, "Ugly and smell, two for one."
    • Some viewers recall SpongeBob saying, "Hi, building" slightly faster.
  • "Big Pink Loser" - The episode's title card music was abusively low-pitched in the original airing, but it was changed to a high pitch version presumably since the original may scare children. The original music pitch can be viewed here: [1]
  • "Bubble Buddy" - The original airing had a few seconds of "Big Pink Loser" before cutting to Patrick's rock. This was cut in reruns to avoid duplicating.
  • "Dying for Pie" - On the YTV airings of this episode, the title card isn't shown."Imitation Krabs" - In the Bahasa Indonesia version, the narrator says "2 ½ Hours Later." instead of "6 ½ Hours Later."
  • Italian censorship for Wormy00:19

    Italian censorship for Wormy

    "Wormy" - This episode was banned in some countries due to the sudden live-action buzzing horsefly close-ups being frightening to the young audience. Also, there was a scene in the original airing when SpongeBob was eating pie. This was cut for unknown reasons, though it was cut for time. Also, the That's What Friends Do song was cut in Italy.
  • "Patty Hype" - The first customer's patty was originally blue, not purple.

  • "Prehibernation Week" - According to the Season 2 DVD commentary, when Sandy was raking the leaves, she made a big symbol for "Girl Power," but it got changed to "Texas," possibly because it's her home. She also originally did a whole dance routine when stepping on the leaves, but that had to be cut for time. There was also an alternate ending. Instead of SpongeBob laughing when realizing Sandy began her hibernation, originally he was going to say "Why I oughta!," this was removed for unknown reasons.
  • "Life of Crime" - The original airing had SpongeBob saying "No more getting nailed," followed by Patrick hammering a nail into his head. SpongeBob's line was changed to "No more getting mail." The original line was changed due to sexual references. Also the following scene where Patrick hammered a nail to his head is replaced with a scene showing him sucking his thumb.
  • "Christmas Who?" - On the Season 2 DVD, Patchy's line at the beginning of the second half of the episode, "It's about time you got back! (Holds up a SpongeBob Christmas decoration) Now I can finish me story! (Scene cuts close to the decoration)," is cut due to there being no commercials on the DVD. The scene is still intact on the "Christmas" DVD. Three more scenes (or lines) in the storyboard were deleted as well.
    • Squidward (as Santa) gave the first girl a Squidward antique instead of a wrench.
    • While waiting in line for Santa (as Squidward), Mr. Krabs had a deleted line in this episode. He said "And don't forget about me pony!" This was cut for unknown reasons.
    • After Santa Squidward gives the first girl the gift, SpongeBob says "I told ya he was real!" enthusiastically.
  • "Survival of the Idiots" - According to the audio commentary, the original title was going to be called "Survival of the Morons." It was changed to "Survival of the Idiots" for unknown reasons. Also according to the storyboard, Sandy's bed was hanging from the ceiling, and there was much more saliva. If her bed was hanging from the ceiling, it would be impossible to climb onto it.
  • "Dumped" - In early airings, the bus had jellyfishers in it. 
  • "Shanghaied" - According to the Season 2 DVD commentary, there are three different alternative endings. In the original, SpongeBob wishes that the Flying Dutchman was a vegetarian. In the second, Patrick wishes for gum. In the third, Squidward wishes that he never met SpongeBob and Patrick. All three are included on the Sea Stories DVD, but not the VHS version.
  • "Gary Takes a Bath" - This episode was banned in many countries because of the disturbing subliminal message girl and the sexual innuendo "Don't drop the soap."
    • Also, the title card music was originally going to be called "Hawaiian Train" but was changed to "Nostalgic Hawaii" for unknown reasons.
    • However, it is not banned in the US, Israel, Turkey and a few more countries.
    • After many years of being banned in the UK, it eventually started airing again around 2009.
  • "Welcome to the Chum Bucket" - According to the Season 2 DVD commentary, there was a scene where Plankton takes out SpongeBob's brain before putting it in the robot. The scene where Plankton reads to SpongeBob is edited in some countries, removing SpongeBob's drool.

  • "The Secret Box" - Some people recall seeing a picture of SpongeBob with a lampshade over his head or in his underwear while Patrick is revealing the embarrassing photo of SpongeBob at the Christmas party during the original airing and initial repeats.
    Italian censor of Band Geeks (!!!!!)00:18

    Italian censor of Band Geeks (!!!!!)

  • "Band Geeks" - In the Persian and Italian dubs, Sweet Victory is cut for an unknown reason, possibly time constraints.
  • "Graveyard Shift" - The Nautical Nonsense and Sponge Buddies DVD features Tom Kenny and Rodger Bumpass recording a scene from this episode. It also includes storyboards of the episode and a deleted scene, in which SpongeBob does another activity "at night" as he delivers the mail to "Floorboard Harry." Floorboard Harry was also originally going to be the one responsible for flickering the lights, not Nosferatu. This was changed, possibly to add a scare vibe to the episode.
  • "Procrastination" - The original airing had the following: SpongeBob saying "Gee, this is harder than I thought" then SpongeBob looks outside the window and sees a carnival with Squidward sunbathing, jellyfish playing tennis, Gary blowing a horn and riding on a beach ball, and Patrick rubbing sunscreen on Sandy and yelling, "C'mon, SpongeBob!" SpongeBob then slides down the window and says, "It should be against the law to have to write an essay on such a super sailorific, sunshiny day. Oh, but I must press onward! Because with this pencil, and the completion of this essay, I'll be one step closer to my driver's license!" (a live-action drag race is shown, a car hits a wall, tumbles and gets back up, cut back to SpongeBob.) "This'll be no problemo. I've got plenty of time. It's only six o'clock! Okay, okay here we go." (SpongeBob struggles to write) (moves his chair closer to the table, he does it a lot because of the fun noise it makes) "I know, I just gotta get a little blood pumpin' in the own noodle! How about some calisthenics?" (does calisthenics. While doing it, he recites "hup hoo" several times). This scene might have been deleted because Patrick was rubbing sunscreen on Sandy, who wasn't wearing her spacesuit, just her bikini and air helmet, and because it looked like Patrick was undoing Sandy's bikini top. Also, the part where a racing car is shown was cut so kids wouldn't imitate the stunt. Also, almost all of them were adult references. It was deleted only from the American airings. It's uncut in other countries, and on DVD version of the episode. The scene can be viewed here: [2]
  • "Sailor Mouth" - According to the Season 2 DVD commentary, it was planned to have a scene that had SpongeBob saying "Go (Dolphin noise) yourself" followed by Patrick saying "(Dolphin noise) you too!" during the Eels and Escalators Game. It was cut due to it being too inappropriate for the younger audience, as the use of "Bad Word #11" in this context was clearly decipherable.
  • "The Fry Cook Games" - In the original airing, the episode ended with SpongeBob and Patrick exiting the stadium holding hands. This scene was re-animated to them holding shoulders to avoid controversy. This was only edited in certain countries. Also, in some airings, the title card does not appear.
  • "Jellyfish Hunter" - In recent UK airings, the scene where No Name cut the power to SpongeBob's house was replaced with a shot of the door outside of SpongeBob's house for unknown reasons. It is unknown why this was done, as this arguably makes the scene more creepy. It was originally uncut, they only cut it a few years ago. Also, in the Fisher-Price InteracTV version of this episode, the scene where SpongeBob looks out the window, No Name calls SpongeBob's phone and doesn't speak. Cutting off the power to SpongeBob's house, and then sneaking into the kitchen like Gary was cut for possibly being a bit creepy to some kids, making the scene where SpongeBob runs into his house cut to where SpongeBob finds a Krabby Patty with blue jelly on the kitchen floor. In Turkey, there is no deleted scene, as all scenes were released.
  • "Squid on Strike" - In some countries, the "Hey, Mean Mr. Bossman" song is instrumental.

Season 3

  • "SpongeGuard on Duty" - On Nick India, the scene where Patrick checks his tan, but sees his butt, is replaced with a still image of SpongeBob.
  • "The Bully" - The original airing had SpongeBob and Patrick playing leap frog while Flatts is beating him up. It was replaced with a scene of SpongeBob cooking Krabby Patties for unknown reasons, thought it was probably to save time or that it would've been impossible for Flatts to beat up SpongeBob while playing leapfrog as it would have been a hazard for him.
Just One Bite Cut Scene00:59

Just One Bite Cut Scene

  • "Just One Bite" - This is one of the most popular and infamous deleted scenes in the series, Jay Lender, one of the show's writers, confirmed it in an e-mail, which were posted in a different, older thread. When Squidward awakes from his dreaming about marrying a Krabby Patty, he wakes up and he says, "I have got to get my hands on a Krabby Patty and no one's gonna stop me!" and runs past SpongeBob's house on tiptoes, and when he's at the Krusty Krab, he says, "There it is, unguarded! All I have to do is...wait. It's too easy. There must be some kind of (liquid drips) This is our burglar alarm? A bucket of water? Ha-ha! (he kicks the door open, thus spilling the bucket over) That was too easy! (sniffs the liquid) Hey, this isn't water. This is...gas!" (A robot arm drops a lit match into the gas, resulting in a huge explosion. Squidward enters the kitchen setting off another burglar alarm. The kitchen bursts into flames for a few seconds. Then, he walks over to the Patty Vault). Later airings have Squidward say, "There it is!" (cuts to interior of Krusty Krab with camera zooming in through window to the Patty Vault. Squidward approaches it as he did in the original version. The rest of the episode goes normally). It was initially cut out of respect to the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks less than a month prior, and its absence after the "too soon" period was due to concerns of public imitation. The uncut episode is still aired in full on YTV, Nickelodeon Canada, VideoNow versions, and can be viewed here: [2] It is also present in the Bulgarian and Korean dubs.
  • "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy IV" - An interview with Sam Henderson on SpongeBuddy Mania claimed there was a scene involving the Bikini Bottomites destroying furniture inside SpongeBob's head. It's likely cut either so that children would not be encouraged to do this or that it was a subtle adult innuendo.
  • "Doing Time" - The scene in which SpongeBob gets arrested by the police and Mrs. Puff finds out she had already been to prison was originally going to be the end scene. It was changed to the scene where the boat continues falling with Mrs. Puff saying "Oh, forget it" for an unknown reason, likely to add comedy. There was also going to be a secne where Mrs. Puff's Dad was going to appear.
  • "One Krabs Trash" - The original airing had SpongeBob saying, "You'll never guess what I found in my pants last night," but "pants" was changed to "sock," because it sounded like SpongeBob was referring to his genitalia.
  • "As Seen on TV" - There was a scene when SpongeBob thinks "That's just what I need!" It was cut. Also, there was a scene where SpongeBob was cooking Krabby Patties. A fish took a picture, only for fun, and SpongeBob thought he was turning famous. It was cut for unknown reasons.
  • "Can You Spare a Dime?" - When SpongeBob choked Mr. Krabs, it had originally went on until his eyes turned bloodshot red. This was edited due to gore references.
  • "Squilliam Returns" - An interview with Sam Henderson claimed there was a scene that had baby Squilliam walking while Squidward is only learning to crawl. Then, when they're in high school, Squidward only gives his date a single flower, but Squilliam appears with a bouquet of flowers and an enormous box of chocolates.
  • "Rock-a-Bye Bivalve" - At the end of the episode, after Junior flies away and SpongeBob says "Despite all we've been through, it was worth it.," Patrick says "Yeah... let's have another." This was cut from some countries for sexual references, but left intact in the US and the UK. Also, in one part of the episode Patrick says "I believe in parenting with the heart... and with the shucking knife!" This scene was eventually cut for extreme violence references.
  • "Wet Painters" - In the storyboard version, SpongeBob says, "I dedicate this crash to my best friend Squidward!" This was changed in the final cut, possibly because the line implied that Squidward had died in an automobile crash. Also, in the Arabic dub, on MBC3, the scenes with Mr. Krabs relaxing in his home with SpongeBob and Patrick's butts mounted on his wall and Patrick washing the dollar in the washing machine were cut.
  • "Party Pooper Pants" - On the television version of this episode, the French Narrator has two scenes in-between a commercial break:
    • Narrator: That includes you folks, SpongeBob's House Party will be right back after these messages. [fades out and back in] [Patchy is shown dancing and a guy in a submarine outfit walks towards the camera] Ahoy there! Welcome back to SpongeBob's House Party!
  • These scenes were cut from the DVD releases because there are no commercials on the DVD. These deleted scenes can viewed here. Also, in the storyboard featured on the Tales from the Deep DVD, the guests leave after SpongeBob unlocks the door when he gets back from the stony lonesome.
  • "Chocolate with Nuts" - The original airing had a scene with Patrick saying "I wish my nuts were chocolate" and pulling out a bag of peanuts (which resembled that of the Planter's brand). It was cut due to genitalia references.

Spongebob deleted scene 2

  • "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V" - The original airing had a plane shown exploding. It was possibly deleted due to the events of 9/11 or due to an intense level of violence. All the following scenes can be seen on the "Fear of a Krabby Patty" DVD special features: Mermaid Man using his "scope-vision," a press conference with E.V.I.L, the ice cream truck becoming a "Miss Thang" robot, a fish defeating Miss Thang with a disguise, SpongeBob rejoicing over the Mermalair's secret entrance, what really happened to the real I.J.L.S.A, Patrick armpit-farting, SpongeBob's original name: The Whizzer, Captain Magma skywriting, the Whizzer causing a tornado, Miss Appear being run over by a car, the Elastic Waistband being caught in the tornado and being defeated, and Mermaid Man's scope-vision malfunctioning.
  • "New Student Starfish" - In the original storyboard featured on the Sponge for Hire and the third season DVD, after Patrick leaves in the end of the episode, SpongeBob says "Can I have his star?" It also shows Patrick looking at the calendar in the classroom and seeing the number 24 on it before he introduces himself. Also, on the April 12, 2013 (3:00 PM EST) airing, it cut off Rodger saying at the end "Hey! What'd I miss?" Instead, he said "What'd I mi-." What this means is unknown.
  • "Clams" - The original airing had SpongeBob saying "Actually, it's Coral Blue Lipstick number 4" before getting hit by Squidward. The later airings changed to him saying it is Coral Blue Number 3 before Squidward cut him off, for unknown reasons. Also, when the music started, the band was shown before Mr. Krabs began dancing. Another scene that was cut was when Mr. Krabs called his deceased parents (who are strangely still able to communicate with him) to tell about his millionth dollar. All these scenes were cut in reruns, but still appears in the storyboard. Also in the storyboard, Squidward says "And quit your crying" before Mr. Krabs sucks the hand's thumb while he was crying about his millionth dollar.
  • "Ugh" - The Narrator saying "Stay tuned to SpongeBob B.C," Patchy getting hit with a big rock, and the Narrator saying "They discovered fire. How long are they gonna take to mess it up? Let's see." They are all cut from the Season 3 DVD due to there being no commercials. The scene is still intact on the "SpongeBob Goes Prehistoric" DVD and VHS.
  • "The Great Snail Race" - There is a deleted scene in which Sandy is arrested for kicking SpongeBob's butt. This was cut for unknown reasons, but it was probably to save time. Also, this episode, alongside its sister episode, "Mid-Life Crustacean" are banned in Canada. The reason for banning this episode is because of the abuse towards Gary and the horrifying results at the race.
  • "Mid-Life Crustacean" - This episode along side its sister episode, "The Great Snail Race" are banned in Canada. The reason for banning this episode is because of the panty raid scene, and how the episode pokes fun at the elderly.
  • "The Camping Episode" - The episode was originally going to be called "Squid Gets Mauled," but was then changed to "The Camping Episode," most likely because the original title of the episode was deemed too violent and unfriendly for kids.
  • "The Sponge Who Could Fly" - There is a deleted scene in the storyboard that had Patchy ripping off a SpongeBob band-aid when destroying his SpongeBob stuff, although he isn't seen ripping it off in reverse. There's another one where Patchy visits a store while following the map to the lost episode. For unknown reasons, it might of changed to The Seven Trials of Monkey Lagoon, if correct. On the television version of this episode, right after SpongeBob lands in a Feather Delivery truck and says "I guess I spoke too soon." there is a scene with the French Narrator saying "Will SpongeBob learn to fly? Stay tuned." This scene was cut from the DVD releases because there are no commercials on the DVD. This deleted scene can viewed here. Also, SpongeBob smiled nervously when the townspeople joked about him to look for a statue to poop on. SpongeBob being covered in black paint was cut after at least one airing due to implied racism. In the book, there was a scene when SpongeBob was walking back to his house, being laughed at. At one point, a pressman snaps a picture of SpongeBob in feathers. This scene was never broadcasted on TV. The scene can be seen in the book version of the episode.
  • "Pranks a Lot" - In the Brazilian broadcast, Frank said "Shapeless things?" and "Real snot?" instead of "Fake vomit?" and "Real vomit?," possibly because the subject of vomit was slighty too inappropriate. Also, the scene where Sandals says the word "toast" was edited in other countries' versions, each of which feature him saying other words instead of "toast".
    • In Spain, he says "ghost" instead of "toast."
    • In Latin America, he says "ghosts."
    • In the Filipino dub, he says "want some?"
    • In the Hebrew version, he says "sandwich."
    • In Korea, he says "What's that?"
    • In Turkey, he says "ghost" or "bread"
    • In Serbia, he says "bread."
    • And in Bahasa Indonesia, he says "ghost" like in the Spanish version.

Season 4

  • "Fear of a Krabby Patty" - On the storyboard featured on the Fear of a Krabby Patty DVD, they show Plankton waiting for SpongeBob instead of him having to get him up immediately after sitting down. There was another one when a bunch of Krabby Patties from a cave bring SpongeBob to his bed after he gets eaten by a Kabby Patty in his dream. Yet again, SpongeBob says another "K-R-A-B-B-Y-P-A-T-T-Y says I" during the day/night montage. Also, SpongeBob talks to Krabby Patties more in the storyboard animation. Squidward having bags in his eyes was originally going to be the end theme, it was changed for unknown reasons.
  • "Funny Pants"- This episode was originally going to be called "Unfunny Pants," but when it aired on Nick, it was changed to "Funny Pants."
  • "Have You Seen This Snail?" - The episode was orignally going to be a TV movie, and original plot for this episode was Granny fattening Gary up to eat him, but that was changed due to it being deemed too scary for a children's series.[2] Also, she had an axe that was later replaced with a tray of cookies because she acted like she was going to kill Gary.[3] According to the storyboard, SpongeBob was originally going to visit Squidward's house and ask him if he could help give him a hand with carrying snail food. This was either cut to save time or it was replaced with Patrick.
  • "SquidBob TentaclePants" - The original airing had Squidward talking to a therapist after Sandy's machine exploded, and was horribly deformed and mishapen into a liquid ball of the fused characters that was in the scene where Sandy's machine exploded. This was cut from reruns in certain parts of Europe due to being too gruesome, though it still remains intact in the US, UK, Turkey, Canadian, Spain and Poland airings.
  • "Dunces and Dragons" - On the Season 4 Volume 1 DVD, the storyboard shows SpongeBob and Patrick making sure they are OK after falling out of the sky. This was cut to either save time or unknown reasons. This deleted scene can viewed here.
  • "Ghost Host" - As shown on the storyboard (Link here, there are several deleted scenes and note that some deleted scenes may be hard to view due to the "OUT" label obscuring the view):
    • The Flying Dutchman was shown doing the finger trick on SpongeBob after turning into various monsters to scare him (to no avail). It was cut for unknown reasons.
    • After the customer at the mattress store wakes up, he says to the manager "Oh?! It's you. You gave me quite a start." This was cut for unknown reasons.
    • Before the party scene, the storyboard shows the Flying Dutchman laying in a pile of junk, sleeping. SpongeBob clears his throat to get the Dutchman's attention, causing the Dutchman to wake up and say "Breakfast? I'd like four fried eggs & three double Krabby Patties." SpongeBob then brings out a plate of steamed coral, saying "How about a healthy serving of steamed coral instead." The Dutchman asks "Why, do ya think I'm getting a little paunchy?" SpongeBob then says "I'm on the outside lookin' in, man." The Flying Dutchman proceeds to take the steamed coral ("Alright, alright, gimme that thing!") and sniff it, then pushes it away in disgust. SpongeBob then says he has to go to work, but that he knows that the Dutchman will scare the pants off of someone. The Flying Dutchman mumbles "Yeah, sure." but when SpongeBob asks what he says, he says in a louder voice "I'll get right on that." SpongeBob then leaves the work, and the two say goodbye to each other. Immediately after, the Dutchman grabs the phone, and calls his friend Ralph to have a party, which then leads up to the party scene. This scene was most likely cut to save time or complexity.
    • When everyone at the party leaves, Susie asks the Dutchman "Will I see you again?" The Dutchman then says "When you least expect it, baby!," proceeded by SpongeBob slamming the door. This scene was cut for sexual references.
    • Immediately after the aforementioned deleted scene with Susie, SpongeBob goes over his agreements with the Dutchman's residence inside his house, followed by the Dutchman licking SpongeBob's finger. This scene was cut for unknown reasons, possibly to avoid gross-out humor.
    • After the Flying Dutchman cries after watching the video, SpongeBob comes up to comfort him and says "I know, buddy, I know...," followed by the Dutchman rocking back and forth. This scene was cut for unknown reasons.
    • After the old lady walks away, SpongeBob comes up and asks the Dutchman what happened. The Dutchman sadly says he probably doesn't have it in him anymore, which causes SpongeBob to grab his beard and yell "NONSENSE!," and pep talks the Dutchman that he still has it in him. This scene was cut for unknown reasons, probably to save time.
    • Originally, before they head up to the gym, SpongeBob says to the Dutchman "Dutchie! I think we found your next victim!" This was cut for unknown reasons.
    • Before Squidward goes to pamper his face, he says "Thank goodness for days off I can get back to what's really!" Then, when he comes to his make-up brush, he says "Ah, the beauty of man foundation. Does wonders for a squid like me. Not that I need it!" Both of these were cut for unknown reasons, possibly to save time.
    • Squidward was originally going to say "Get a hold of yourself, Squidward." before saying "There's n-n-no such things as ghosts." This was cut for unknown reasons.
    • After Squidward says "No! That's impossible!," it shows the Flying Dutchman still doing the finger trick while Squidward says "NOOOO!," before running off. This was cut for unknown reasons.
  • "Whale of a Birthday" - In recent airings, Mr. Krabs' line, "Don't push your luck, boy," was cut, to save time for commercials. The episode is still aired intact on Nicktoons.
  • "Karate Island" - The original airing had a small amount of blood on Master Udon's face after being beat up by Sandy. This was removed due to being deemed too violent. The dedication card at the end of the episode was also removed after the Best Day Ever marathon to make room for more commercials. The dedication card could also have been removed due to Pat Morita's death being long past.
  • "All That Glitters" - According to the storyboard, after Mr. Krabs said "Go before I lose all me customers," he would cry a tear drop saying "Me money," then Squidward would ask "What happened?" and then Mr. Krabs says "I don't know." This was mostly cut to save time for commercials.
  • "Wishing You Well" - The original airing had a few minutes of "All That Glitters" at the beginning and it ended with SpongeBob at the therapist's office before it led to him saying "You can't rush perfection." This was removed from reruns to prevent duplication from "All That Glitters."
  • "Bummer Vacation"- This episode was originally going to be called "Bummer Summer," but the name was changed to "Bummer Vacation," likely because SpongeBob was taking a vacation from work, not boating school. In Indonesia, this episode only cut until the scene, likely due to possible time constraint much like other episodes as it was cut with ads during its airing. But it is possible that scene where SpongeBob disguised as Patrick, seemed too gruesome, as it seemingly shown SpongeBob had Patrick skinned alive and uses his skin for his disguise.
  • "The Thing" - There was a scene when Squidward thinks "What's so great about jellyfish?", this was cut eventually.
  • "Squid Wood"- Mini Squid was originally going to look like the Squidward carving in "Dumped," but he now looks like a ventriloquist's dummy.

Season 5

  • "Friend or Foe" - In the original airing, after SpongeBob squirts Plankton with ketchup and mustard, he said "Curses!" This was edited out in reruns. There is a second deleted scene of the formula flying through the air before the glass shatters. Can be found on the "Friend or Foe?" DVD in the "Original Uncut Animatic" special feature.
  • "Night Light" - The original airing had Patrick saying "SpongeBob, can I sleep with you again tonight?" This was changed to "Sleepover!" in later airings due to intercourse references.
  • "Spy Buddies" - In the audio commentary, Tom King stated that in the original sketches, while SpongeBob and Patrick were sneaking in, Plankton was having a talk with Karen's Mother-in-Law, a car alarm, it was probably deleted because it doesn't make sense because her mother-in-law would be his mother and his real mother was seen in a different episode. The original title "SpyBob" can also be mistaken on TV guides.
  • "New Digs" - In the scene where SpongeBob tries to go to sleep, there was a scene where Gary had an udder underneath him to make SpongeBob the glass of snail milk. This scene was deleted, and was never aired.
    • This episode was banned in Israel for unknown reasons. It is possible that it is because the signal loop about the disposal of SpongeBob walrus similar to their behavior in Palestine (even though they are the heaviest).
  • "Goo Goo Gas" - Originally, in the scene where Plankton sits on the bench and watches the baby, Plankton would take the babies bottle a few times and then kidnap the baby. The baby's mother would then walk up to the stroller and ask where her baby went. It was heavily implied that Sadie was not going to be the baby's mother, so it was later cut.
  • "Roller Cowards" - In the Bahasa Indonesia version, SpongeBob says "heart attack" instead of "spine loss" and "frightened" instead of "projectile vomiting." There was also a scene where it showed SpongeBob and Patrick printing their Glove World tickets on the Internet. This scene was cut for unknown reasons, possibly due to time constraints or because electronics and water don't mix really well.
  • "Breath of Fresh Squidward" - A scene involving Sadie talking to Susie was cut. It was probably deleted because of the mother talking to her daughter about her life and her baby (birds and bees talk), it being irrelevant to the plot and due to the fact that Sadie is not Susie's mother. This part was retained on the animatic on Bikini Bottom Adventures DVD release. Four more scenes (or lines) where cut as well.
    • After SpongeBob says he and Patrick sneak into Squidward's house every morning, he said "...with our best friend, Squidward." This is cut for unknown reasons, maybe due to the fact that Squidward couldn't sneak into his house if he was sleeping.
    • After Mr. Krabs heard that Squidward is selling free hats, he said "Did somebody say free... in my restaurant?!" enraged and runs off from his office. In reruns, he only says "Did somebody say free?" suspiciously.
    • A scene involving SpongeBob screaming after finding out that Squidward made some Krabby Patties was cut.
    • The scene showing SpongeBob saying to Squidward before he gets electrocuted "What're you gonna do, cry Mr. Squidward Tentacles, or should I say Squidjerk Losercles" was cut. Presumably because of the name calling.

    • Three viewers recall hearing Squidward say "You idiots! Museums never use the real items!" in the original broadcast. This was removed in reruns, if correct.
  • "The Inmates of Summer" - When the episode was run 6:00 PM on May 16, 2013, they forgot to show the title card. They still forget to show the title card usually.
  • "To Save a Squirrel" - In recent airings of this episode, the title card isn't shown.
  • "20,000 Patties Under the Sea" - The scene where SpongeBob and Patrick fall into the abyss after finding the submarine was cut from reruns in some countries for unknown reasons.
  • "The Two Faces of Squidward" - The original way how Squidward got his face back to normal was he got hit by a car, but it got changed to a support beam in the Krusty Krab, likely because the original scene would have been too frightening for young viewers. Also, The episode has been banned in some countries, because both of the new "handsome" Squidwards, (especially the second "even more handsome" Squidward) really terrified younger viewers. Another reason it was banned in some countries is because of the constant hitting Squidward in the face with the door, which a lot of countries don't tolerate that kind of violence. 
  • "Banned in Bikini Bottom" - Pearl was originally going to sing at the Secret Krusty Krab, this was cut for unknown reasons, possibly to save time.

    • After he got a lump on his head, SpongeBob said, "I better not hit my head again. That might cause a concussion." This was removed for unknown reasons or time consuming.

    • All of these scenes are shown in the "SpongeBob's WhoBob WhatPants?" DVD on the storyboard making.

Season 6

  • "House Fancy" - The original ending of this episode was Nicholas Whithers hating Squidward's house and Squidward punching Squilliam out of anger. This may have been cut due to violence or there would have also been no point in the episode if Nicholas hated Squidward's house. Also, the toenail scene was also cut from Indonesian airings due to a warning made by the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission about the violent content in cartoons.
  • "Krabby Road" - In The Bahasa Indonesia version, the scene where Patrick plays "William Tell Overture" on his belly was cut for unknown reasons.
  • "Penny Foolish" - According to the Boating School marathon, the whole episode was replaced with "New Student Starfish."

  • "No Hat for Pat" - Patrick was originally going to say "Oh, you know what? You're just mean, and most importantly, I hate you! So get lost!" This was cut due to Patrick's unusual level of idiocy and rudeness.

SpongeBob says, "It doesn't have to be," which causes Sandy to slap him. Also, there was a deleted Sandy theme song when Patchy is inside the belly of a whale. These scenes were probably cut to save time.
  • "Pineapple Fever" - According to the script found in the August 2009 Nickelodeon Magazine, the episode was supposed to end with the tornado stopping and the house falling on Squidward. This was cut due to a reference of death or a high level of violence.

Season 7

    • At the beginning of this episode, when Plankton emerges from the sesame seed, he uses an inhaler to breathe. He also does this when he gets trapped in Sandy's suit. This was presumably cut because of uses of medicine or teaching toddlers to use an inhaler even if they don't have asthma.
    • After SpongeBob smells the buns, he says "Nothin' like the smell of that!," then is shown making Krabby Patties. Then, he says "Hmm... which one? This is a special patty for a special someone, so I need a special bun. I better use the scientific method!," plays "Eeny, meeny, miny, moe," and chooses the bun Plankton is in, and exclaims "Bun, you are quite a looker!" before placing on the Krabby Patty. This was probably removed due to time constraints.
    • There was also a scene in which Sandy took off her bra before taking a shower, and wasn't wearing a bra throughout the rest of the episode. This was cut due to full frontal nudity.

Squidward answers, "Don't cry over a soiled Krabby Patty. And now may I give you a little word of advice... shut up!" SpongeBob starts crying more. Then, it cuts to the chalkboard scene. This was cut for Squidward's rudeness.
  • "One Coarse Meal" - The original title of the episode was supposedly "Plankton Got Served."
  • "Welcome to the Bikini Bottom Triangle" - The production name for this episode was "Welcome to the Bermuda Triangle," as seen on some of the original character storyboards on Facebook.

  • "Spin the Bottle" - According to the rough storyboard version SpongeBob found the bottle thinking that it was water and almost swallowed Plankton. It was likely cut to save time.[8]
  • "The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom"- The stop-motion models of Mrs. Puff and Pearl from "It's a SpongeBob Christmas!" were originally going to appear, but their scenes had to be cut from the final episode for time. [9]

The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie

There is a deleted scene included on the DVD and Blu-ray that can be found in the Animatics feature. The deleted scene shows SpongeBob and Patrick meeting Sandy on land. It had probably been cut because of Patrick vomiting many times. In the same deleted scene, Shell City is actually a city and is

Deleted scene with Mr. Krabs appearing in SpongeBob's room.

where Sandy constantly gets pursued all over the place by squirrel exterminators in black suits. She also mentions that there are buses that arrive here and Bikini Bottom. Also, during SpongeBob's awakening in The Goofy Goober Party Boat, he asks for a "double fudge spinny." This line was rejected from the film, but was still used in the Ice Cream Dreams book which is loosely based on the ice cream sequence in the movie. There is also a deleted scene where Mr. Krabs appears in SpongeBob's room with the "MANAGER" hat. This was cut due to save time, or that the team thought the ending was a bit dull.

The Spongebob Squarepants Movie Deleted Scenes

However, the deleted scene of meeting Sandy on the surface was later recycled into the 2nd movie when SpongeBob and friends are surprised by Sandy's superhero ability of being a giant real life squirrel named "The Rodent." It was cut to either avoid confusion or surprise everyone in the 2nd movie that this deleted character would end up in the second movie. In the first teaser trailer Gary is shown enjoying taking a bath with SpongeBob as the latter plays with his water toys. It was cut to save time.

  • A shot of Mr. Superawesomeness's (Patrick's) pants ripping off revealing his underdrawers with him saying, "Nothin' to see here."
  • A shot of SpongeBob saying, "Maybe you should get that checked out" cutting to reveal Patrick has a hole in his head saying, "Why?" this was removed for unknown reasons, possibly it would be a bit scary to younger audiences.
  • Sour Note plays his clarinet and makes farting noses.
  • Burger-Beard throws a 6-pack can holder at Sour Note and he gets tangled by it.
  • Beach girl holding a 3 scoops ice cream cone.
  • SpongeBob and friends singing "Thank Gosh It's Monday."
  • A line of SpongeBob on the surface saying "Clean it up just clean it up."
  • Burger-Beard explains that the Magic Book's powers can only be activated by having the Krabby Patty formula. However, that idea was scrapped. Now things can come true by re-writing the story even without the formula.
  • In one version of the scene where Patrick (not as Mr. Superawesomeness) eats the ice cream, it is on a beach, not in the kid's hand.
  • A scene of Burger-Beard the Pirate in his ship, telling his seagulls a story about him when he was younger. This was probably cut to save time.
  • SpongeBob and Plankton time-traveling to the Mesozoic era, where they encounter Patrickosaurus and Squidasaurus Rex. This scene was taken out of the movie, but in the video game, our heroes encounter both dinosaurs. This was either cut to save time or to surprise everyone when Patrick returns to the present with the Squidasaurus Rex.
    • Another time traveling scene had SpongeBob and Plankton visit Bikini Bottom, but the citizens are robots. But it was cut for unknown reasons possibly to save time or it would not make sense.
  • One part shows Mr. Krabs serving Nasty Patties to the customers. This was cut because it would not look pretty if a customer actually ate one after all these years.
  • A car chase scene with SpongeBob and Plankton and ends with SpongeBob receiving an F- from Mrs. Puff after crashing. This was cut for unknown reasons.
  • A Montage of Mr. Krabs thoroughly cleaning SpongeBob's brain, similar to "Brainwashing," this was cut to save time.
  • Plankton telling SpongeBob to make Krabby Patties by using his muscles at the Taco Haüs. This was scrapped and instead replaced with SpongeBob, Plankton, and Karen building a Time Machine with using stuff inside Taco Haüs.
