124 Conch Street[1] is the address of the pineapple house where SpongeBob SquarePants and his pet snail Gary and pet scallop Shelley live in. The house is three stories high and fully furnished. It first appears in the episode "Help Wanted."

The pineapple itself originates from land, when it fell off of a ship navigating above the sea, as seen in the TV special "Truth or Square."


Interior and exterior

There is a garage in the back of the house and two windows in the front. The garage can first be seen in the early short "Reef Blower" and the episode "Naughty Nautical Neighbors," although it was more recently seen in "Have You Seen This Snail?" when Gary left the house through it. It has also appeared in the episode "The Gift of Gum" when SpongeBob tried to sneak Gummy outside. It can also be seen in later episodes of the show, such as "Patrick! The Game" and "Burst Your Bubble." Out back of the house, the backyard is closed in by a square of flowers, much like the ones seen in the sky.

It also has an outdoor tap where a hose can be attached, as seen in "Unreal Estate."


First floor

There is a small garage in the back of the house and two windows in the front. The garage is first seen in the episode "Reef Blower."

Out back of the house, the backyard is closed in by a square of flowers, much like the ones seen in the sky, but in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie video game (PS2/PC), SpongeBob's backyard has instead boards, not flowers. On the first floor, his house features a living room, coat closet, trophy closet, kitchen, laundry room and a kitchen pantry.

The living room features an inflatable sofa, a regular chair with a life ring as a seat, and a diving helmet-shaped TV, and a small table with a phone shaped like a conch shell called a shellphone. There are decorations such as a fishing lure above the sofa, a photo of Gary near the kitchen door, and on the left a fishing hook wall ornament, above a small table. On the small table is a potted coral plant. The living room features bamboo wallpaper, two fishing hook ornaments, and various pictures framed on the wall.

The kitchen contains a fridge, a stove, sink, a cupboard, and a table, and other typical kitchen tools. Gary's food bowl can also be found here, though sometimes it is seen in SpongeBob's bedroom. A green staircase is located outside of the kitchen.

There is a set of stairs on the left that twists around the home and stops at a safe door behind the chute entrance to the second floor. In some episodes, there is a hallway behind the door.

Second floor

SpongeBob's bathroom is found on the second floor. The hallway contains doors leading to his library, bathroom, and gallery, as well as an additional staircase that leads to his bedroom.

His bathroom contains a square-shaped toilet, a shower/bathtub, a sink, wringer, etc. as well as a porthole window that looks out onto Conch Street. His bathtub is decorated with a bamboo curtain.

The library is the largest room in the house and occupies both the second and third stories. It contains books such as Moby Dick, The Godfather, and Silence of the Clams, as well as various comic books and SpongeBob's work diary. The library also contains a reading chair chained to the ceiling by a fishing hook, a huge pipe organ, a fireplace, a porthole window, and a spare closet. There is also an entrance chute coming from SpongeBob's room, first seen in "Boating School."

There is a workout room, featuring teddy bear weight lifts and other light objects (that are heavy for SpongeBob), as seen in "Help Wanted," "MuscleBob BuffPants," "The Great Snail Race," "Bummer Vacation," "No Nose Knows," "The Way Of The Sponge," and "Sharks vs. Pods."

Third floor

The staircase to the third floor is also green-colored and is found next to the library. SpongeBob's bedroom is found on the third floor, along with a hallway. SpongeBob's bedroom features a foghorn that serves as an alarm clock, and a diving board above his bed (which has three mattresses). The bedroom also contains a porthole window from which the inside of Squidward's House can be seen. The fifth season episode "Night Light" shows that there is another bathroom attached to the bedroom.

There is also an escape hatch to the grassy roof of the house, which is seen in "Jellyfish Jam," "Something Smells," "That Sinking Feeling," and "Love That Squid." This terrace is hidden by the leaves atop the pineapple. His pineapple came from a boat in "Truth or Square." As seen in Battle for Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob's bedroom is on the first floor (but then, SpongeBob appears to only have one floor).


SpongeBob's third floor contains an escape hatch to the roof. Most of the time, SpongeBob climbs onto his roof to avoid various types of danger, although he also runs up his wall to the roof in, "Best Day Ever" where Gary is revealed to be at the top of. The roof contains one unfurnished room with no ceiling, and the wall is made out of the crown of the pineapple. Characters commonly climbed to the roof in the first 4 seasons, but it has barely ever been seen since.

  • In "One Krab's Trash," his bedroom is on the first floor, while it is usually on the third floor. This may have had to be done because it would be impossible for Mr. Krabs to scare SpongeBob through the window on the third floor.
