Issues with the Tinopolis dub
In the Welsh dub, the episodes are in the wrong order and only seasons 4, 5, and 6 have been dubbed into the Welsh language. On January 21, 2018, it was confirmed that Sain Recordiau (a division of the Welsh record label Sain, who are also reponsible for the Welsh dubs of Thomas & Friends, Bob The Builder, Octonauts, Peter Rabbit, Chico Chugg, Bing & Mike The Knight) will dub the rest of the series. The cast will be Elain Llwyd, Aled Evans, Dyfrig Evans, and more which will be confirmed soon. It is confirmed that Gareth Delve, the former Cyw presenter, will voice SpongeBob. Aled Evans will voice Squidward and Mr Krabs, Dyfrig Evans will voice Patrick, and Elain Llwyd (well known for her role as Dona Direidi, also plays Chantelle the bank-teller in the British movie The Golden Years) will voice Sandy. Ffion Llwyd (Elain's sister will voice Pearl Krabs. Seasons 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10 & 11 will be dubbed by SAIN Recordiau Cyf whilst they redub seasons 4 to 6.
- Almost the entire dub uses the SpongeFont SquareType font.
- SAIN Recordiau Cyf's intro of a kids saying "Ie, Capten!" instead of aden used in the Tinopolis dub.
- It is likely that Sandy will sound more like Dona Direidi rather than the Texan accent due to her being voiced by Elain Llwyd.
- SpongeBob would not sound like Mickey Mouse in a Cyw dub of SpongeBob like he did in a Tinopolis version.
- Squidward & Patrick's voices will sound accurate in a Cyw version.
- In the Cyw version, Sandy might call SpynjBob "Spwngi" as Dona Direidi calls the non-living sponge "SPWNG" in a episode Oli Odl 1.
