The SpongeBob SquarePants series has graced our screens for going on 17 years from 1999-2016. The show has evolved in terms of the production crew, story ideas and, in particular, animation style and models.
I think it is safe to say we all prefer the animation present in Seasons 1, 2 and 3 - it offers a little more fluidity and feels warmer somehow. Obviously, the introduction of new and cheaper technologies has lead to the animation present from seasons 4 (latter) and onwards.
One major criticism of this new style of animation has been the characters models and the 'rigid' nature of them. Especially from Season 5 onwards, SpongeBob's character model never seems to change (see right):

2015 has been an awesome year for the SpongeBob series with The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water hitting theaters way back on February 6, and the resumption of Season 9 in the summer!
The movie in particular was a great success and it certainly sparked much discussion on this wiki and indeed the whole SpongeBob fandom!

Just recently, Entertainment Weekly revealed the preliminary release date for the third SpongeBob Movie to be on...
February 9th, 2019!
This release date seems very poetic being that 2019 would signal the show's 20th anniversary. That is a very big milestone for any cartoon in general and would extend it's lead as the longest running original 'Nick toon'.

So what do you think? Is the movie coming too soon? Too late? Should there be a third movie at all?

Halloween is TODAY, so I thought it fit to get into the Halloween mood and ask:
What are the most scary or disgusting moments in the SpongeBob SquarePants series?
You may wonder whether a series like this could have scary moments, but it is widely believed that the toe nail scene in "House Fancy" is one of the more disgusting scenes in the series. Some also find SpongeBob's brain being revealed in "Scaredy Pants" is positively gross!
Comment below your most scary moments from the SpongeBob SquarePants series.
This could include scenes you find gross, scary or even scenes which fit the Halloween theme.
Happy Halloween everybody! --Spongebob456 talk 19:04, October 28, 2015 (UTC)Read more >
