Appearances
SpongeBob SquarePants is the title character of the series of the same name. He has appeared in every episode of the series except for "The Algae's Always Greener," in which his alternate counterpart appears instead. SpongeBob has the most appearances of any other character in the whole series.

Although every full-length episode of the series is where SpongeBob (or his alternate-universe counterpart) appears in, he does not appear in several shorts. These include the "What If SpongeBob Was Gone?" shorts, "Friend or Foe" shorts, "Ask Patrick Anything," the Merry Nickmas shorts "Patrick the Snowman," "Plankton's Holiday Hits," "A Chuckie Finster Christmas, Channukah, Kwaanza, Winter Solstice," and the SpongeBob Gold short "Krabby Patty IRL." Although, he does appear in most other shorts.

He plays a major role in all episodes except "Rise and Shine," "Ugh," "Plankton's Army," "New Leaf," "Best Frenemies," "SB-129," "Enemy In-Law," and "Mall Girl Pearl," just to name a few of his minor role episodes. His usual role in each episode is a major role.

Episodes in which more than one SpongeBob appear include "The Chaperone," "Sleepy Time," "Squilliam Returns," "The Sponge Who Could Fly," "Spy Buddies," "Overbooked," "Back to the Past," "SpongeBob You're Fired," and "CopyBob DittoPants."

His only non-speaking appearance to date is in "Reef Blower."
