They are made up of clips from many different shows, movies, music, games, etc. SpongeBob SquarePants being perhaps the most popular with full episodes due to the show's massive success. These videos are known for featuring bleeping sounds and/or bad word clips from TV shows, movies and songs when the characters talk, chaining together bits and pieces of dialog to make characters say something different (most of them being obscenities), putting clips, cut-outs and sounds from other shows, or sometimes with other things such as random images and songs to make viewers laugh. However, be warned, many of these videos have some obscenities and mature content, so viewer discretion is advised.

A lot of old YouTube Poop videos (mostly those ranging from 2007/2008 when these jokes were at their most popular) include Luigi from the Super Mario video game series by Nintendo in one way or another and have "Weegee" (a meme from the PC versions of Mario is Missing) in the title like the video "The Haunted Hotel Of Weegee (edited version of Krusty Towers), "The Sky Had A Weegee " (edited version of Shanghaied), and many more. Interestingly enough, the edited version of these episodes seem to have the role of SpongeBob be a completely different character, known most times as Spingebill, and is portrayed as psychopathic and mean.

Notable SpongeBob Edited videos include "Spingebill Learns The Dark Arts of The Krusty Pooping " (Krusty Krab Training Video) by AwfulFawfulTheFalafle, "Squidward Gets Possessed by a Bad Lemon " (Can you spare a Dime?) by MoBrosStudios, the infamous and most viewed YouTube Poop ever made, "Pride Patties " (Patty Hype) by CaptainOhYeah and a story-based YouTube Poop, "Mr. Krabs' Unquenchable Blood Lust " by EmperorLemon. These can all be found on YouTube, although they contain obscenities, so watch at your own risk.

The grand majority of these SpongeBob YouTube Poops gather a large amount of views, with certain videos like "The Sky Had A Weegee!" and "Pride Patties" gathering over 10 million and 12 million individual views, respectively, making them some of the most popular type of SpongeBob video on the web.

There are also other types of SpongeBob YouTube Poops (YTPs for short), and these are known as YTPMVs, short for YouTube Poop Music Videos. Although obviously not exclusive to SpongeBob, as all YTPs are, YTPMVs consist of using small sounds and clips from various media to recreate songs and melodies (with the most common example being video game music). SpongeBob has seen various YTPMVs based on several episodes, with the most common noise being SpongeBob's laughter because it can be pitch-shifted to allow for different varied sounds and melodies. A good example of a SpongeBob YTPMV can be seen in this Brazilian YTPMV, which uses several different sound and voice clips from various episodes to recreate the song "U.N Owen Was Her?!" from the Touhou Project, a 2D sidescrolling shooter game for the PC, whose song has gained immense popularity in it of itself on the web.

SpongeBob Poops have also gained a lot of popularity on the Brazilian Web, with several episodes being "pooped" (edited) by several "poopers" (people who make YTPs). The poops themselves normally include foul language and references to Brazilian popular culture, which normally attracts views from parents who found these inappropriate videos on accident. One of the most popular SpongeBob poopers on the web, only known as "Chinelin", has made countless videos that would be very good examples of Brazilian SpongeBob YTPs and their appeal. However, Chinelin closed his YouTube account due to personal reasons, and most of his poops are gone. There were some select few poops that were archived before the account closed and that were Re-Uploaded onto the site by Chinelin's fans, one of which is the YTPMV cited earlier in the article.


Squidward's Suicide

Squidward's Suicide 1

The most popular image of a supposed screen cap of "Squidward's Suicide"

Squidward's Suicide (also known as "Red Mist") is an urban legend from the horror website, Creepypasta. The story is narrated in a first person perspective by a supposed intern who used to work at Viacom (the company that owns Nickelodeon and its shows) who had early access to future SpongeBob episodes as he recounts his experience watching the episode with other interns. The story was supposed to be for "Fear of a Krabby Patty", though the early details explain a very disturbing and morbid episode about Squidward doing a poor performance at a clarinet recital, accompanied by footage of Squidward mourning at his failure, as well as illegal photos of dead children massacred by a shadowy photographer being put in as subliminal messages until ultimate the story culminates to a voice saying "Do it" and Squidward shooting himself in the head. An image associated with it is of Squidward with "hyper-realistic" bloodshot eyes. The "lost" episode was adapted several times and in different formats on YouTube. The identity of the person who made the pasta is unknown, although certain people suspect a disgruntled animator called Andrew Skinner. It is not proven though that it is he.

Spongebob Subliminal Messages

This section has speculative information. Please keep this in mind as you read it.

Recently many videos have circulated across the internet, depicting the many hidden innuendos in SpongeBob SquarePants, as well as providing unnoticed messages or images. Oftentimes this includes characters saying inappropriate words and dirty humor as well as hidden images. Most of these are edited and fake. In Chocolate With Nuts Patrick  can clearly be heard saying,"Eat sperm" (Only if slowed down at one part), but others have been debated about for a long time. One unaltered video involves a scene in InSPONGEiac where Patrick is biting SpongeBob's hand and you can clearly hear SpongeBob yell "OW F**K".

SpongeBob (Speedy)

Many SpongeBob episodes posted on YouTube are often sped up, because of copyright from Viacom (who own Nickelodeon, which airs and produces SpongeBob). It is one of the oldest SpongeBob-related phenomena on YouTube dating back to pre-copyright removal status which has been around since 2007. They can be specified as two types: Chipmunk and non-Chipmunk. Chipmunk is based from Alvin and the Chipmunks, as the characters' voices have been made higher-pitched. Non-Chipmunk involves the characters speaking with their regular voices (making them easier to understand), but the rest of the episode is sped up.

SpongeBob Backwards

This features episodes of SpongeBob played in reverse to express humor and at times, people notice hidden sentences in it. A similar phenomenon called "SpongeBob Theme Song in Reverse" plays the song backwards often with lyrics showing it has inappropriate lyrics in reverse. There is also a phenomenon in which SpongeBob and Patrick speak backwards from Opposite Day played in reverse to show what they are really saying.

SpongeBob Acts of Violence

These videos depict SpongeBob committing various acts of violence such as SpongeBob Kills Patrick and SpongeBob Goes Crazy With An AK-47. These videos are very bloody and graphic. The purpose of these videos is entertainment but they sometimes offend some viewers. Other videos other than these show SpongeBob killing characters from other children's cartoons,video games, movies, etc.

You Have Met Spongebob on Club Penguin

This meme includes a Club Penguin character waving to SpongeBob while the notification box says, "You have met SpongeBob! Would you like to give him a high-five and rob him afterwards?

SpongeBob Bootleg Episode

SB Bootleg

SpongeBob Bootleg Episode is a Creepypasta. It contains an edited version of Dumped. The only image in it was a picture of SpongeBob with big, bloodshot eyes and no mouth. The rest was either color images or black screens. Most people who have stared at the image believe SpongeBob will blink.

Stepping on the Beach

(From the episode "Walking Small") Lots of people are taking that scene and turning it into remixes.

Surprised Patrick

In The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie spongebob and Patrick are being chased by a monster with a tongue shaped like an old woman. The monster then falls into a ditch and is eaten by another monster which is eaten by another monster, and this cycle continues for quite some time. When it is over, the camera zooms in to Patrick and SpongeBob sitting there with surprised faces on. People will take Patrick and put him in some other picture or gif with a surprising event going on. This meme has become extremely popular, and has even been used by Nickelodeon.
