Trivia

  • Derek Drymon makes a comment about the SpongeBob theme song: "Steve's idea was to try to make the most annoying song you can, to—so when Saturday morning, when kids turn the TV on and parents are  trying to sleep, you have this pirate screaming in the other room for the kids to jump on the floor."
  • The song is based on the sea shanty, "Blow the Man Down."
  • You can see Squidward Tentacles house on the left after Painty yells, "Ooooooooooooooh!"
  • Captain Maggot of Emilie Autumn's musical group likes to sing this song.
  • In the Square Roots version, Avril Lavigne sings it.
  • There was a new opening, but to be only seen in Truth or Square.
  • SquidBob TentaclePants had an opening, but later on, it was switch back into the normal theme song.
  • In the movie, it was a real song.
  • After Season 2, the animation was changed, followed by an HD transition from Season 9 onwards. Despite this, the song remains in its original cell animated, SD version throughout the entire series, even with the newer episodes.
  • When Spongebob played the trambone in Truth or Square, it was similar to Pinky Dinky Doo when Mr. Guniea Pig played a trumpet when someone was about to say the Great Big Fancy Word.
  • In The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, when Burger-Beard the Pirate begins reading the story to some talking seagulls, the seagulls begin to sing the theme song, but Burger-Beard orders them to stop before they can finish, threatening them with death. In the end of the movie, having accepted defeat, Kyle, a younger seagull, asks him if they can sing it. They put a hat on Burger-Beard and a picture frame around him and Burger-Beard, having accepted defeat, reluctantly agrees to lead them in singing the song. The scene then becomes animated with Burger-Beard replaced by Painty the Pirate, and audio from the TV version of the theme song is used.
  • in some other countries, the intro footage is different. (Ex: the French version has a bubble of SpongeBob, a face of him and his name in French too)
