The 1997 SpongeBob Sketch

The SpongeBob Sketch is a quickly drawn version of SpongeBob SquarePants that is always seen on the series of the same name's logo. It can also be seen throughout the series on its own.


  • "Help Wanted" - Before the official intro and outro, the 1997 pilot outro had shown the SpongeBob Sketch instead of the logo for United Plankton Pictures, Inc.

  • Intro - Once the official SpongeBob intro was created the official logo had the SpongeBob sketch on it
  • Intro - SpongeBob is in many countries and in the French intro the spelling for "SpongeBob Squarepants" cannot fit on the screen so instead in many scenes where SpongeBob's name should be in the intro it is changed; when there is bubble letters a SpongeBob sketch appears.
