Why Spongebob Is In So Many Memes - Feat. Tom Kenny

Pubblicato il 11 lug 2019
It’s been twenty years since the first episode of Spongebob Squarepants aired on Nickelodeon, and in that time the anthropomorphic sea creature has become a household name. Apart from being one of the most successful children’s shows of all time, the series has also spurred dozens of memes, IT-tvs mashups, and general internet shenanigans.
So how did this unassuming cartoon become the face of internet comedy? We turned to Spongebob voice actor Tom Kenny, the show’s former executive producer Paul Tibbit, and New York’s resident meme expert Madison Malone Kircher to find out.


  • 3:12 "You can probably take a screenshot of any moment in Spongebob and find the emotional state of the characters easy to understand". There is literally a Facebook paged named "Every Sopngebob Frame In Order"

  • When you’re young you’re a spongebob When your a teen you’re a squidward When you’re an adult you might become a Mr.Krabs Being the adult you are and living in a different generation you become a Patrick You’d run into Sandy’s being on how much they love the place they live in and the friends they have Or you’ll run into plankton’s who not only hate everyone and everything they want to ruin or take over everyone and everything and see huge jerks

  • “I’m a meme expert” you merely adopted the meme culture i was born in it molded by it

  • I have a feel that every second in every Spongebob episode have a massive potential to become an internet memes (also happen to JoJo as well lol)

  • Have Kenny react to the first SpongeBob movie

  • 90% of the memes sucks. It really ruins internet and memes

  • I have always related to sponge bob and I always will

  • Tommy Kenny : you want to fly a kite but sometimes you don’t have time Benjamin Franklin : am I a joke to you

  • “Meme expert” my dad knows more about memes than you

  • "Sinks or swims" I see what you did there Tom

  • There dead memes :[

  • What a freaking legendary show! The music, the animation, the voice acting, the style, the backgrounds, the clever adult humor, the relatable character, situations, memes, and plots. So crazy to think we will probably never ever get another show like this. They set a bar that is nearly impossible to top in the way they did it. Even gravity falls despite being a really great show just didn't have the same spark that spongebob did to everyone.

  • Steve Hillenburg single handedly is the guy who brought the most joy to all kids more than anyone else. And I owe my childhood to him for that!

  • YTPs don't have much to with memes

  • More like 30+ years cuz the creator made it in the 1980s

  • I ♥️ Kenny

  • Why does Tom Kenny sounds alot like his French Narrator voice even though he wasn't even voice acting at the time?

  • Tom Kenny is great. He doesn’t complain about the newer episodes being worse, he just rolls with it.

  • I thought they would talk about every spongebob frame :'(

  • 6:15 I LOVED that video as a kid!

  • I’m not a big fan of how Jennie Monica has the extra poses now, it seems like there’s too much movement now in newer episodes

  • Damn I haven’t watched sponge bob in awhile, brings back memories and it’s sad to see videos about it because most of us grew up watching this show almost everyday

  • Is amazing

  • Literally every goofy moment you can turn into a meme

  • Spongebob gives us a combination of random and energetic animation all expresions and faces are unique I think all that magic gives us memorable moments I still saying quotes to my friends like "are you feeling it mr. Krabs?" "have you finish those errands?"

  • Are they trying to say youtube shitpost? wtf is a youtube poop!?

  • Notice how they’re only showing the older episodes. 😑 You know, because the newer one’s are C.

  • This is one of the biggest waste of film and electricity I’ve seen all year .

  • "What's your dream job?" Me: 3:32

  • Why *the first four seasons of Spongebob is in so many memes - feat. tom kenny

  • Sing Bitc Lansagana

  • Sincerely did not know Tom Kenny's speaking voice was like that.

  • IT-tvs poops😂😂😂

  • ahahaha Stewie: "Is Spongebob not at the bottom of the sea giving squidward the buisness?!"

  • If you think in to it spongebob is soo simple but fascinating at the same time

  • He's in so many memes because yo mom ugly. (Mic drop)

  • I never saw some one call them an meme expert XD

  • Before he passed away my pawpaw who was 90 would watch spongebob all day everyday

  • That blonde chick don't know about the grand daddy of crazy shit, Ren and Stimpy. The rubber nipple episode proves it all.

  • You are my favorite character!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
