Paul Harrison Tibbitt (born May 13, 1968) is one of the main SpongeBob SquarePants crew members. When Stephen Hillenburg left after the first movie, Tibbitt took over the position of showrunner. After the second movie, he became executive producer with Stephen Hillenburg for the remainder of Season 9. His position as the supervising producer and the showrunner was succeeded by Vincent Waller and Marc Ceccarelli in 2015.
Starting with "Whirly Brains," Tibbitt is no longer credited as an executive producer, and left to work on the third SpongeBob movie, alongside Kyle McCulloch. After the third movie, it has been said that he has no plans for returning to the show.
- In the opening credits for "My Pretty Seahorse," his name was misspelled as "Paul Tibbit," shown without a second "t."
- Tibbitt has no plans to return to SpongeBob SquarePants after the third movie, making it his final project on SpongeBob after nearly twenty years of being a crew member.
