|Prototype of:||SpongeBob SquarePants|
|List of prototypes|
His looks were practically the same as SpongeBob and he most likely had the same voice (except he wore a green hat). He also had longer and pointier shoes along with the hat. He seemed to have a goofier facial expression, rather than the SpongeBob now.
- In the episode "Squeaky Boots," Mr. Krabs calls SpongeBob "SpongeBoy, me bob!," a possible reference to his original name.
- In "It's a SpongeBob Christmas!," Plankton references the name when he says "Now I just need to figure out what to do about ol' SpongeBoy."
- The reason the name wasn't put to use was because the name was already taken by a mop company.
- SpongeBoy has 13 holes always visible on his head. SpongeBob has 7.
