I remember how, in the past, you've said countless times that "NO EPISODE IS AFTER THE FIRST MOVIE!!!" Insisting that no episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants take place after The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. However, that statement now seams to be false. In a Season 10 episode titled "Lost and Found," there are many items from The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie placed in the lost-and-found. This means that "Lost and Found" takes place after The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. I know this because in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, SpongeBob is shown getting some items. In "Lost and Found," some items from the first movie are shown in the lost-and-found like as if someone had them before. Otherwise, how did those items end up in the lost-and-found in the first place? I know Stephen Hillenburg confirmed that the first movie takes place after the TV series. Although, the episode "Lost and Found" seams to contradict this statement. Maybe next time you say "NO EPISODE IS AFTER THE FIRST MOVIE!!!," remind yourself of the episode "Lost and Found." Instead, you can say "NO EPISODE OTHER THAN "LOST AND FOUND" IS AFTER THE FIRST MOVIE!!!"
None of this proves that it takes place after that film.
First, if it did take place after the first film, then the crown would be in possession of King Neptune. Actually, regardless, it should be in the possession of King Neptune. Therefore, making the crown not King Neptune's.
Second, the Guitar is not evidence either as, if anything, this proves, where the guitar came from in that scene.
Third, the Goofy Goober Outfit doesn't prove anything either as Goofy Goober's has been mentioned numerous times throughout the series.
Fourth, most importantly, if this episode actually took place after the first movie, then SpongeBob would be the manager of The Krusty Krab 2, not an employee of The Krusty Krab.
In conclusion, just becuase the series has a few visual references to the movie, does not mean those episodes are automatically after the first movie.
It appears that the date was used becuase of misinformation. I have removed the date as Patrick's birthday. However, I do have a hypothesis on the real date, which I believe to be December 14, but I would need that date to be confirmed by the staff on this. The date comes from the date that Patrick's identification card expires on, which in some places is the birthday of citizen who has it, but Bikini Bottom might not work that way, so I don't know.
