Howdy! You're viewing my personal tribute to Spongebob Squarepants, the cartoon created by Stephen Hillenburg. The program has been on the air since Nickelodeon's 1999 Kids' Choice Awards. This is one of the oldest Spongebob fansites on the web, founded in March of 2000. It is quite a text-heavy site, so I hope you don't mind a bit of reading to find out about this show. =)

2009-06-14: Please don't visit anymore. Apparently, as of April 30, Bravenet stopped offering their short URL redirect feature and neglected to inform me. The best ways to get to my page are by typing into your browser's address bar, Googling (or Binging, if you so choose) for Sarah's Spongebob Site/Shrine, or bookmarking me (Firefox users, press Ctrl+D).
Here are some fun links:
- Spongebob's Golden Dream, from the June 2009 issue of The Atlantic
- Nickelodeon's official page for Spongebob's 10th anniversary celebration

2008-12-04: There won't be too many future changes to this site. For the latest Spongebob updates, please visit SpongeBuddy Mania and United SpongeBob. Also, Wikipedia's Spongebob page generally has accurate information. Thank you to everyone who has supported my site over the many years! =) Please contact me if you have any questions about the site or Spongebob in general, and I'll do my best to respond.

I don't have any full episode downloads. If you want to see all the episodes, it is difficult to find them online. Viacom monitors YouTube so that people's uploaded episodes are not posted for very long. Your best bets are to purchase the DVDs or record the show from TV (it's on numerous times per week - check your local TV listings).

Use to find out which episode titles will air (you may need to register, input your ZIP code, and select the type of TV service you have).

In the U.S., half-hour episodes air on Nickelodeon and also the premium cable channel Nicktoons Network (formerly "Nicktoons TV").

Nickelodeon's "seasons" are not one full calendar year each, nor does the channel air new episodes on a regular basis. Although Spongebob Squarepants has been on the air since 1999, there has not been one season of the show per year. The Spongebob production team took a break in order to work on the movie, which premiered in 2004.

Spongebob Season 5 - announced November 9, 2005

Spongebob Season 6 - announced December 12, 2006

Spongebob Season 7 - announced March 13, 2008

Well, this beloved site of mine has been relocated a few times. Don't go to,,, or anymore; they won't work. You can reach this main page of my site via

This layout premiered on February 29, 2004. TooMuchFilth made the sweet image along the left margin and some link buttons too, and Foxy Grandpa provided hex codes for the colors. The sidebar image is an altered part of a screenshot from the episode Texas. The font used for the headings and navigation is Dauphin.
