"Literal Version"

A "literal version" (describing what goes on in the video) was made as a Nickelodeon commercial. It goes as such:

Painty: My mouth looks weird! 

Kids: Sure does, Captain! 

Painty: I can't hear you!

Kids: We're yelling, Captain!

Painty: Down...

Painty: Here is a pineapple, where are the shells? 

Kids: Here comes a man hand!

Painty: Taking a bath so he no longer smells!

Kids: Bubble title!

Painty: Multiple SpongeBobs on multiple ships...

Kids: Here's the title again!

Painty: What's with this fish? And what's with his lips?

Kids:  Let's try a tiki title! 

Painty: That looks painful! Lots of spinning! Must be dizzy! SpongeBob loses his pants!...There they are!

Painty: Sometimes his nose sounds like a flute!

Trivia

  • Derek Drymon makes a comment about the SpongeBob theme song: "Steve's idea was to try to make the most annoying song you can, to—so when Saturday morning, when kids turn the TV on and parents are  trying to sleep, you have this pirate screaming in the other room for the kids to jump on the floor."
  • The song is based on the sea shanty, "Blow the Man Down."
  • You can see Squidward Tentacles house on the left after Painty yells, "Ooooooooooooooh!"
  • Captain Maggot of Emilie Autumn's musical group likes to sing this song.
  • In the Square Roots version, Avril Lavigne sings it.
  • There was a new opening, but to be only seen in Truth or Square.
  • SquidBob TentaclePants had an opening, but later on, it was switch back into the normal theme song.
  • In the movie, it was a real song.
  • After Season 2, the animation was changed, followed by an HD transition from Season 9 onwards. Despite this, the song remains in its original cell animated, SD version throughout the entire series, even with the newer episodes.
  • When Spongebob played the trambone in Truth or Square, it was similar to Pinky Dinky Doo when Mr. Guniea Pig played a trumpet when someone was about to say the Great Big Fancy Word.
