Think Happy - The Year of the Sponge (known as Happy Yellow in Japan) was a year-long campaign that was held in countries including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Scandinavia and Belgium. It featured a marathon called Think Happy Day, that was broadcasted in networks like Nickelodeon, Nicktoons, Comedy Central, MTV and VIVA, with the idea coming from Nickelodeon North Europe. It featured new Season 6 episodes (including the WhoBob WhatPants and SpongeBob SquarePants and The Big Wave specials), online games and like The Ultimate SpongeBob SpongeBash, it was celebrating 10 years since the premiere of SpongeBob SquarePants.
In Germany, the Think Happy Day event was held again on May 22, 2011 and May 27, 2012 in the same country.
