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.

Commenti

  • 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

  • Im your #1 fan

  • Watching Steven even for a few seconds makes me feel weird because it feels like he’s still here.

  • Crazy how my favorite cartoon as child turned into this “your uncultured if u haven’t seen this” thing to adults

  • SpongeBob meme are legendary

  • Why Spongebob Is In So Many Memes Me: Chalklet ? , CHALKLET !?!?!?!? !!!!!!

  • THANK YOU FOR TALKING ABOUT YTPs they kinda paved the current meme culture as far as obscurity goes imo

  • I love how jalletbos video is the one that's censored!!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • I feel this video in my heart! Great sum up!

  • 2:38 is Spongebob not there at the bottom of the ocean giving Squidward the buisness?

  • This sponge is 12 years older than me

  • This show came out a year after I was born. I remember watching this show every morning before I went to school. I miss classic Spongebob so much. It will always remind me of my childhood and back when Nickelodeon wasn't trash

  • 0:00 with spuj bob

  • When Tom Kenney dies, the world is over

  • I felt like you used that meme wrong at the end. There was nothing exhausting about this video at all, it was heartbreaking more than anything.

  • 鬼畜大神

  • Rip Stephen Hillenberg 😭 imma miss you

  • Dragon Ball Z has a similar presence in meme culture, rap, and mashups.

  • Respect to the King of the Hill youtubepoop, one of the best experiences on this site.

  • 4:36 the ine person that can relate to MURDER..... I...... have no Words for you.

  • IT-tvs poop stopped being popular/funny like 10 years ago wtf

  • 6 years ago i spent a solid 30 mins going back and forth on whether or not I should buy a recreation of "Bold and Brash" at a small art show at my college, cuz $20 was a lot to spend on art at the time. I did eventually buy it because "fuck it, yolo". Hung it up first in my apartment, got a lot of compliments; moved across the country and hung it at my desk at my first job, and again, got lots of compliments on it. I've since lost it and probably once every couple of months I wonder how I could've been so careless to lose such an awesome piece. Spongebob is seriously a cultural icon.

  • EmpLemon did a great video on this in his NeverEver series it-tvs.com/tv/video-cYu7Y52iiYI.html

  • This was so good omg I started to tear when ya spoke about Steven when he passed. My childhood man❤️

  • I love that I clicked on one Tom Kenny video once, IT-tvs just kept throwing more and more on my recommendation. Not that I’m complaining though lol

  • It's simply because the show is so relatable in real-life whether you take SpongeBob or Squidward characters

  • I really hope that Nick doesn't pull a Disney and reclaim Spongebob in the future when he reaches the end of copyright. I think Spongebob should belong to the public.

  • Make this the most disliked comment on youtube

  • I highly recommend everyone who sees this comment to go and check out a video by the IT-tvsr EmpLemon, called "There will never ever be another show like SpongeBob SquarePants". It's a really profound analysis of why SpongeBob is such a beloved icon.

  • We can’t let this distract us, from the fact that Mr.Krabs sold SpongeBob for 62 cents.

  • squidward is my spirit animal forever and always

  • Who is this video for? People who don't understand memes? lmao tf?

  • I'm soo happy youtube poop was mentioned. I feel like it's a side of IT-tvs a lot of people dont know about and are really missing out!

  • don't you dare take tom Kenny away from us

  • 2:51 got u

  • FUCKING BOOMERS LMAO

  • someone mention themselve as meme expert is not meme expert

  • I;m so attracted to that meme expert girl

  • I can't believe they used an old DurhamRockerZ KOTH poop in here. Wow.

  • Nothing more normie than calling yourself a meme expert.

  • F

  • It was difficult to hold back the tears *(。•́︿•̀。)*

  • When you have a spongebob meme on your shirt...... No one: ......... Primitive sponge: ●◇●

  • “I am a meme expert” *10 seconds later* “I think a popular one now is the imagination one”

  • 7:34 whens his mixtape dropping?

  • Two fucking ads

  • Madison: I'm a meme expert Also Madison: *names the oldest spongebob meme*

  • Yeah why is it some many memes

  • YTP’s used to be the best thing on IT-tvs Those were the “dank memes” we have now, but in 2010

  • 0:32 the origin of dabbing squidward

  • please make this guy a mortal

  • I have hated SpongeBob my entire life. But maybe I should give it another chance.

  • So there is a thing called meme expert?

  • anyone who calls them selves a "meme expert" automatically makes them very disconnected for internet culture

  • Tom Kenny's manager is on fire hahah

  • I used to love youtube poop omfg.

  • 3:35 spongebob : I aM A mEmE ExPeRt

  • You guys remember that one where spongebob... Me too

  • “I would definitely say I’m a meme expert” **her kids avoid showing her memes 24/7 so they don’t get a literal explanation as to why it is/should be funny**

  • Why is Tom Kenny all over my recommendations? 😍

  • 5:33 for a self proclaimed "meme expert" I don't think that could be more wrong.

  • The fact that they mention IT-tvs Poops really shows how these videos were a huge influence to today's shitposts. If anything, YTP's were the precursors of shitposting before that word even existed (or had become mainstream). Very great and insightful video! Felt like a celebration of not only Spongebob, but of internet culture as a whole.

  • i feel like 99.9% of the spongebob memes are from season 1-3. those seasons are gold, nothing can really compare with them

  • The Office is definitely just as pervasive as Spongebob in memes

  • “They didn’t grow up in the era of spongebob”... its been running for years. Everyone has seen spongebob at this point. Its in almost everyones childhood

  • this pervasive? have you seen jojo
