When I comment on the show, I'm gonna talk about the voice acting itself and the casting.

Voice acting (per seasons):
Season 1: I wasn't a fan of the early voicces tbh, besides SpongeBob. I know a lot of people enjoy the first season due to its calmer tone, but the voice acting felt somewhat off. their best performance isn't no where as outstanding as later seasons.
SpongeBob's voice was deeper, though I admit it sounded cool. Patrick sounded too smart for his character. Squidward sounded like he's quivering his lines most of the time. Mr. Krabs and Sandy are rather quiet. Same applies to a few other characters.

Seasons 2-3: By the time season 2 came out, everyone settled in their more familiar voices. SpongeBob gets higher, Patrick more stupid sounding, Squidward more clear, Mr Krabs and Sandy less quiet. Their best voice acting are usually when sad moments or even humorous moments kick in.

Seasons 4-9A: It's a mixed bag. More will go on Andrea Romano's voice directing. But SpongeBob is all over the place. Tom Kenny made it higher pitch and eventually deepen it again towards season 8. Patrick's voice gets deeper as it goes on. Squidward is more energetic in later seasons due to his increasing stress. Krabs' voice gets less deeper, but it's fine. Sandy still sounds the same. Plankton, same goes to Krabs, it had gotten higher.

Season 9B-: The voice acting is just as great as ever. SB is back to the deep tone overlapping with his higher pitch voice. Other characters still sound like their post-movie selves.

Voice directing:
Andrea Romano: A longtime voice director, she voice directed the show from seasons 5-8. If I'm being honest, some of her voice directing varies. During slow-paced episodes, the voice directing can be very tedious at times. But when done right, she can direct the voice actors very well, even during the show's lowest point.

Tom Kenny: Who knew SpongeBob himself would started doing this job? He began voice directing the show as of Lost in Bikini Bottom and I think he's doing a great job right now, even moreso than Romano. The voice acting doesn't feel stretched out and sometimes slow (which his character SpongeBob suffered from emphasizing words too much in post-movie seasons). Only problem is a few episodes can be very loud from the 10th season, hurting his perfect voice directing on the show.

This show has some ridiculously memorable lines and deliveries

For what's it worth every season had been hit and miss I think though I thought 4 was the worst of the lot but of all the seasons... season 1 was the only season I really really like the colours(I was that kind of person, I still am), the more serene acting clashing with the weird stuff that could happen it was gold

(Speaking of which, what is up with Nickelodeon now with butt jokes? happens in Sanjay and Craig and Breadnwinners, like do they think that is funny? or appealing to watch/hear? because it isn't)
said at 2:20 PM on Wed Feb 1 2017
@Coolpika1 Yeah but I guess that their aiming their channel towards kids under the age of 11 because any kid under that age will stupidly laugh at those jokes. It's pretty sad.
said at 3:12 PM on Wed Feb 1 2017
@Chuckster03 That's been the channel's target demo since the beginning. You shouldn't criticize the intended audience just because their comedic taste doesn't match yours.
said at 4:53 PM on Wed Feb 1 2017
@CatsTuxedo I didn't mean any of that, in fact I was just talking to Coolpika1 about how Nickelodeon nowadays is just about butt jokes and sitcoms, I was not talking about 90's Nick in any way or circumstance. Nick has always been like that, but back then it was kinda aimed towards kids and adults. Rocko' s modern life and early SpongeBob are examples of this.
said at 6:09 PM on Wed Feb 1 2017
@Chuckster03 Nickelodeon was never 'aimed' towards adults. The focus has always been on kids, and the fact that adults just happened to find a joke here and there funny is inconsequential.
said at 5:05 PM on Mon Feb 27 2017
@CatsTuxedo Really? explain Sanjay and Craig and Breadwinners? how that amount of butt jokes, gross comedy, twerking, farting, and being retarded anything to young kids? this is not for kids nor adults for the matter just that Nickelodeon has been running with the same job for a long time and its been played out to the point you ask "who honestly really likes this?name a person who does"
said at 5:33 PM on Mon Feb 27 2017
@Coolpika1 The point still stands. If you understandably don't derive the slightest amount of amusement from that sort of thing, then you've likely outgrown the channel's target demographic. You should stop focusing on why you don't like contemporary shows aimed below you and just seek enjoyment from shows that actually target your own age group.

When I was a kid I thought Baby Got Back was the absolute funniest thing to have ever been made and entertained everyone I knew by reciting all the lyrics word-for-word. I didn't get what it was actually about, I just liked that he said "big butts". Like these cartoons or not but butts and dumb humour are comedy gold when you're a kid.

While I do prefer Seasons 1-3 myself, the fact that people act like the newer episodes of this are that much worse, really doesn't make any sense to me at all. There are shows that have clearly suffered far more severe declines, yet I don't see them getting criticized as such for it at all, just saying. And no, I won't list them because it'll easily trigger some people for having a different opinion from them on the shows I have that opinion with.

At least Seasons 7-9 were a big step up from Seasons 5 & especially 6, to me that was the low point of everything in the Series. Season 4 was pretty good, though. Looking forward to Season 10 now that Hillenburg is back, too.

While the American voices are rad, I love the Dutch voice acting in this show so much. Dutch Spongebob's voice actor actually moved on to other things than voice acting, but he's said he wants to keep doing Spongebob because he feels he just is the character. I admire that.

Spongebob just isn't the same since the end of Season 4. 5/6 were OK, but 7-9 were just awful IMO.

I get uncomfortable watching episodes like "Stuck in the Wringer", "One Coarse Meal", " Demolition Doofus" and "A Pal for Gary".

I blame this on Zeus Cervas and Luke Brookshier being involved in the writing department. A lot of their episodes range from merely copypasting older episodes to trying to add Family Guy styled humour into the show.

In the UK, Spongebob is on Nicktoons every *insert number 1-12* o'clock on Nicktoons. To add to that, Nicktoons tends to play episodes from seasons 7-9 about 80% of the time, and that's including some of the more gross-out/negative moral episodes.

Yeah, it hasn't been the same since the likes of Stephen Hillenburg, Dan Povenmire (Worked on Phineas and Ferb, which is now finished) and Kent Osborne (Adventure Time) stopped being involved.

Earlier this month, I saw the episode "Suction Cup Symphony" and I gotta say it's 1 of the better later episodes in the later seasons of this show for you guys that hate it.

Even though Squidward gets annoyed by SpongeBob & Patrick and those 2 get praised. The twist that surprised me was that Squidward got praise from the crowd for a change. Every other episode has Squidward getting booed so it was nice to see something different.

said at 1:42 PM on Tue Jun 10 2014
Just for fun,i will tell you my own theory on how the characters got flanderaized,on account of how quickly they changed,basically after the original staff left,the new writers were called in and came with zero knowledge about the show or its characters,so ,as if giving them a crash curse,Paul Tibit made them watch maybe 20 or so episodes out of the original 115 ,but since they were all completely disinterested they all just took a notepad and wrote down only the most superficial traits of the characters.And with that we can make a pretty good assumption about certain that they saw

The Patrick centered ones consisted of
* Im with Stupid(Him shamelessly using Spongebob and treating him like ****)
*Dumped(Portraying him as a cold,callous , thought less bastard)
*Big Pink Loser(misinterpreting him as a whiny,attention seeking bitch,aslo pushing his stupidity to the eleven)

Episodes with Krabs as a central figure must have been limited to
*Krabby Land & Jellyfish Hunter(you know his most villainous moments)
*One Krabs Trash(highlighting his obsessive pursuit of money)
*Clams(showing that he cares more about a dollar than life,also showing signs of sanity slippage)

For Squidward
*Camping episode,Squid on Strike & Jellyfishing(Nonstop Squidward torture)

*Sandys Rocket(She likes science and is completely useless to the plot,thats all there is to her) and Karate Chopers,as the only episodes that they saw that even featured her

Among others;
*The Great Snail Race(the inspiration for A Pal for Gary,Pat Sitter Pat,A Cent per Money,ect.)
*Doing Time(torture Mrs.Puff to the brink of insanity)
*Planktons Army(Without help old Plankton is just a pathetic,little loser)
*Party Pooper Pants(Oh,so the specials must by all means be dull,lackluster and inferious to regular episodes)

People, I have a theory of why the characters personalities are completely over the top. I say it's to move with reality. That doesn't make much sense right but these examples will help explain things better.

SpongeBob & Patrick: As we get older, our mind starts to loose a bit of its spark. I've known people who were smart in Primary (Elementary) School but they ended up becoming kinda thick & stupid in High School ( well it can happen the other way around as well don't forget). I'm pretty sure that's the way to describe those two. After all, I'm sure most of you guys know someone who got brain dead over the years.

Squidward: The older we get, the more grumpier we become. I'm pretty sure our Grampas (Grandpas) never used to be that grouchy back in the day.

Sandy: She's more a science girl now rather than a karate geek. Different interests, remember when you guys used to like this show but nowadays you think it sucks. It because your tastes have changed for other things. Another example would be you loved to read books but now you prefer watching tv.

Mr. Krabs: Loved money, now obsessed with it. It's like playing a game you really enjoy, you start off liking it but then you end up becoming endorsed into it. Or a better example would be gambling, you enjoy doing it at first and it soon becomes a BIG part of your life, similar to money for Krabs.

Plankton: Now crys when he fails. Remember when you failed something and got angry about it. But then you kept on failing & failing & failing. Seriously, I'm pretty sure you ended up crying and whining about it. Happened to me when I kept failing at a boss battle in a game once.

Mrs Puff: Ok, when someone is annoying we all try to be cool with it at first but after a while, it drives you crazy. Come on, we all know an annoying person that we used to stand but can't anymore. So much so that we don't want to be near them.

Gary: Our pets personalities change as well. When you first got a dog (just an example) it wasn't well behaved back then as it is now. Or it could be like mine where it hasn't changed a bit other than it barks more than what it used to. Goodness, 9 years old soon to be 10 in September and still acts like it's a 2 year old. Man that's embarrassing. And why did I bring that up about my dog anyway?

And that is the best way to describe how the characters of this show are what they are in the recent episodes that none of you like.
said at 12:43 PM on Fri Jun 6 2014
@Ross123 Nice theory,but the truth is much simpler than that,season 4 and onward got a completely new staff of talentless, idiotic and enormously inferior writers that don't have a damn clue on how to write good characters(or stories or jokes for that matter),and those our beloved characters get turned into shallow,flanderized shells of their former self's
said at 10:50 AM on Sat Jun 7 2014
@DVJ I wouldn't say all the story lines are bad. I laughed so hard at The Krabby Kronicle... Ha, Ha!!! Local Resident Watchs Pole. So hilarious.

Face the truth, only most of you guys on this site and a small minority somewhere in the world dislike the show nowadays. The rest of the world (myself included) like them. Why else do you guys think it's still making new episodes as we speak.

DreamMaster08X tells me I'm the small minority. Like I said, on this site yes, in the world no.
said at 4:12 PM on Sat Jun 7 2014
@Ross123 So you like the show,thats fine,feel free to defend it,but trust me the `minority`,as you call it,of haters is far larger than you think,not just from the hundreds of you tube rants and negative reviews,but even the spongebob wikipedia says that over half of the original fans complained about the decline of quality and stopped watching the show all together

Also worth mentioning,i recently read on the Wikipedia that in recent years the shows ratings have dropped severely,so why is it still running,one word -merchandising,its well know how spongebob products of all sorts are everywhere now a days and the kids just eat them up.
said at 4:45 PM on Sat Jun 7 2014
@DVJ I read the same thing but it also says that the decline happened in 2012, some point during the 8th Season. I also noticed that it still gets nominated at the Annie Awards.

Look I'm not trying to be a D*** and change people's opinions on the show. Far from it. All I'm trying to get at is that I grow tired of seeing people say that the show is crap in all the comments.

I will give you & the others who hate the show a heads up since the most recent episode SpongeBob You're Fired has a lot of controversy around it meaning that the show nay ebd even more damaged than what it already is.

I noticed that you guys mentioned that it only uses 4 story lines making it repetitive. Complaining about that (to me anyway) is kinda stupid since a lot if cartoons are repetitive, Phineas & Freb is a good example of how repetitive cartoons can be. Just saying.

And most of the repetitive story lines that you guys mentioned were all used many times in the old episodes that you all know & love dearly. I never thought I'd hear the day when someone complains about someone doing their job a lot. The Simpsons does that too and it's amazing how no1 complains.

But keep voicing your opinions since I at least have the common decency to respect them even when I disagree with them.
said at 5:13 AM on Sun Jun 8 2014
@Ross123 You shouldn't let other peoples opinions bother you,if you disagree with them then just ignore them,every show has fans no matter how much the show in question is universally despised.It all comes down to how you analyze and interpret the contents of the show,and in my opinion the new spongebob episodes,aside from the voice acting and improved animation,have simply no redeeming qualities,but if people disagree with that,i can live with it

Also the difference between Phineas and Ferb and SpongeBob is that the former is a formulatic show,but it still manages to make every episode unique and adds new twist and turns to their basic episode formula,and even make fun of the repeating events,Spongebob on the other hand is not a formulatic show, witch means if one episodes has a premise to similar to an older one than it is a rip off,not top mention lazy and unimaginative.
said at 5:44 AM on Sun Jun 8 2014
@DVJ You're right. And even if the episodes are not as good as the earlier ones, it's still well crafted in terms of its art and animation.
said at 8:35 AM on Tue Jun 10 2014
@DVJ You've made a very good point. I'm not usually like this, you know letting the opinions of others bother me. I'll drop the defending SpongeBob thing since it's kinda silly defending a piece of footage of a drawing. That's what I see cartoons as.
said at 5:10 AM on Sun Jun 15 2014
@DVJ I don't really like the colouring in the later seasons though, I will always prefer the darker season 1
said at 1:07 AM on Mon Aug 18 2014
@Ross123 I think the later episodes are worse(and I hate season 4 the most) but that's another story

I have to admit that episode about the Tiki house is good always nice to see Squidward not getting persecuted in sixteen different ways

But to be honest season 1 is different from every other season and not just from the paler colours and that season is my favourite
said at 11:53 AM on Mon Aug 18 2014
@HienFan Season 1 is probably the season where I find SpongeBob to pretty smart most of the time. He actually has a brain in that season. Well, he always had a brain of course but you get what I mean.

The first 4 seasons are what made me love the show so much, and made it one of my favorites.

If the writers want to convince others that this show is not out of ideas, have an episode where Plankton builds Karen a robot body because he gets tired of her wheels squeaking while he works. She breaks up with Plankton after getting tired of his sh*t and gets a gig at the Krusty Krab doing singing.

THAT would boast ratings.
said at 7:57 AM on Sun Jan 26 2014
@TheLemsterPjuWhat would boast rating would be if they made an episode that
a)stays away from their pathetic repeditive 4 plots that they constantly reuse
b)has an actual story,insteed of 11 minutes of filler,and without mean spirited humor and gross out visuals
c)made Squidward and Plankton win at the end,and have Spoghebob,Patrick and Mr.Krabs sufer a painfull and humiliating defeat

But that wll never happen

Triplets of Belleville wasn't really gross. The artstyle was rather unsettling to look at.

Later in the movie there's a frontward shot with the biker guy's HUGE nose, with his heavily detailed eyes starring at you while sounded by what appear to be ghouls.

I haven't seen the movie in a long time to be honest. I could be wrong on the details.
said at 9:08 AM on Sat Jan 25 2014
@TheLemsterPju I'm not comparing by grossness: I'm comparing by grotesqueness (and surreality). Quite frankly, the grossness of the newer Spongebob episodes make it fall into the grotesque category for me.
said at 9:23 AM on Sat Jan 25 2014
@DreamMaster08X Ah I see.

If that's the case I'd throw in Le Roi et l'oiseau and Xavier Renegade Angel as comparisons. Though I wouldn't say current-Spongebob is not anywhere NEAR as grotesque as XRA's most normal episodes.

@Ross123 Wymans Big voce wouldnt suit Patrick at all,and most of the cast would never leave considering that a majority of them practically make a living from vocing this characters,aside from Tom Kenny and Clancy Brown who are of course high profile voice actors,but the rest are complet unknowns.

I always was curious about who would they get as replacemeants,if the original cast lefts.

@DVJ I did say that the cast leaving would never happen, it was in bracts. I was thinking up something & Big's voice got in my head at the time so I then thought that they sound quite similar (in my opinion).

Why do you think Wyman wouldn't be good at voicing Patrick? If you don't mind me asking.

I disagree that SpongeBob is boring nowadays. Well let's be honest SpongeBob did torture Squidward from time to time in the older episodes & unlike most of you, I think torturing Squidward is quite entertaining (even if SpongeBob is acting gay towards him).

Also SpongeBob was silly & quite serious in older episodes while nowadays he's completely stupid but it's still pretty funny to watch really.

Patrick was always stupid really & Mr. Krabs was always cheap.

Sandy I do agree has lost her action side but her science side is slightly amusing from time to time.

The point being is that new episodes don't feel any different from the older ones (besides the animation) for me that is. I don't see much of a difference other than the fact the characters over react more & SpongeBob is brain dead. It's all pretty much the same so I don't see how it's completely awful.

Look I know you all miss Stephen Hilenburg as creator but he wanted to leave & I respect his choices. Just accept it & move on. Paul Tibbit isn't that bad a writer really.
said at 8:29 AM on Tue Dec 24 2013
@Ross123 The difference between the old and new episodes is that not only have they REEEAAALLY overplayed on grotesque and violent imagery (for KIDS, nonetheless!), but they have also overplayed the the traits of the characters that you've just mentioned to an extent to where the characters themselves have become wildly intolerable.

Squidward and Spongebob's feuds in past episodes never resorted to Spongebob physically injuring Squidward in such a disturbing manner.

Patrick has become senseless to the point of irritation, to which you cannot believe that he could become even more senseless.

Mr. Krabs is now such a greedy tool (pardon my French).

I haven't seen any recent episodes with Sandy, so I can't really say anything about her. She might be okay, but what post-movie episodes I've seen of her, she's not that much fun anymore.

@DreamMaster08X Well, at least I still enjoy it even if others don't. It my be childish & all but it still makes me laugh. Unlike a lot of people, I have learned to accept SpongeBob for what he is nowadays.

@Ross123 I guess I should say more power to you. But you're going to have to realize that you are in a SMALL minority of 'acceptance' that you are not going to understand your view, let alone change their own view of it. I understand (partially), but I might be the only one.

But IF I may plea: just please do not ever show your future child[ren] this (at least the new episodes), as I am afraid that they may be needlessly scarred by it one way or another.

I remember going to my Grandpa's House, when I lived down south before i moved, I to watch SpongeBob, Fairly Oddparents, and other shows that were on Nickaloaden and Nicktoons Network. I loved seasons 1-3, and I thought season 4 was OK, but afterwards SpongeBob became stupid and boring with Gross-Outs, Squidward Torture Fests, or just strange.

I sorta like the more rounded "uncanny valley"ish art designs they gave the characters in the later seasons. I always thought the old style was weird to look at (don't get me started on season one's artstyle).

@TheLemsterPju I agree.

@TheLemsterPju Art style isn't the problem.

I never said it was "the" problem. Is it wrong to say that you can like the art style of a show, regardless of quality?

@TheLemsterPju You didn't specify that you didn't like the later seasons.

SpongeBob was such a funny and witty show in its early years. Too bad its lost its edge. It's becoming increasingly for little kids only. I pity the voice actors for be forced to stick with the show all these years. Hopefully they're getting paid well enough for their efforts. In the words of Mrs. Puff, "Oh SpongeBob, Why?!"

@Darth Bugs And when it's not appealing to little kids, it's being disgusting.

@SpongeBat1 Or it's a Squidward torture fest or very strange.

@Darth Bugs I disagree. The new seasons have the same quality as the old ones (just with more bad episodes).

@OswaldFan825 Have more bad episodes is exactly why they're of lower quality. That's basically how quality is defined here.

@Nightmare Crusher My point is they have a good amount of good episodes which are of the same quality of the earlier seasons.

@CartoonFreak666 Yeah; by the time it got to Season Four I was thinking "Just leave the poor guy alone!" Only a couple of recent episodes have started to be kinder to him.

I'm just gonna' come out and say it: The new seasons aren't that bad. Of course, they're not nearly as funny as the old seasons.

@SpongeBat1 Some of them are actually pretty decent, when they show a character to be intentionally sympathetic.

Unpopular Opinion: I don't see a big difference in quality, and the show has never been something that resembles quality writing in the first place.

A show that I enjoyed, one that I held dear, has lost its touch BIG TIME.
