Nicktoons Racing is a Nickelodeon racing game for the PlayStation, Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Color, and PC. It was also released as an arcade cabinet. This is the earliest SpongeBob SquarePants video game and the first store-bought merchandise of the series.
An updated version of the game called Nicktoons Winners Cup Racing has been released, and includes later Nicktoons characters including Danny Fenton from Danny Phantom, Timmy Turner from the Fairly OddParents!, and Jimmy Neutron from the show of the same name, among others. There's also an even newer version called Nicktoons Nitro, released for arcades.
This is the first video game SpongeBob has appeared in.
One of the dialogue the mystery rider says is "Come back here, you swine!" which is reused from the episode "Plankton!" However, the word swine is offensive in some countries.
