SpongeBob SquarePants is one of the most successful and beloved children’s shows of all time. Since 1999, the whole world has followed the adventures of the Bikini Bottom inhabitant and his many marine friends on their strange and hilarious adventures.
Part of the success of the series is largely due to its excellent narrative. Likewise, the upbeat humor, great storylines, and lovable cast of characters have kept kids and adults alike returning to Krabby Krab season after season.
Of course, people of all ages can identify with sponge Bob thanks to his naive and optimistic nature, but most adults have returned to paying attention to the sequences and have discovered the bawdy humor that is hidden under the guise of a children’s program. In that sense, we present to you some of those jokes and references that were made in the show and probably the adults of now did not realize when they enjoyed the program in their childhood.
A somewhat weird cake
Bob is a highly sought after sponge with a serious agenda that he must fulfill. This is never more apparent than in the episode Overbooked, where he struggles to keep all the promises he made to his friends.
Amid the twists and turns of the chapter, Bob stops by a bakery to get a cake for Patrick’s birthday. However, it turns out that the only one the place has is one that says “Sorry about the Scabies” with a vibrant purple frosting.
Most would go unnoticed because they would have no idea what scabies is, but it actually refers to a contagious skin condition, caused by the presence of mites. Probably, that fact can make many adults goosebumps.
In one episode, Bob is forced to improvise to make up for Squidward’s absence. So inflate a series of balloons to give them the appearance of the elusive mollusk. Although there is nothing too far-fetched about this, as it seems like a fairly typical series of events for an episode of the show, what is striking is that the ‘balloons’ that Sponge uses are actually condoms.
The forbidden channel
In one episode, the sequence begins with an unexpected and explicit joke. SpongeBob is watching a sea anemone dance to bar music as it sways from side to side. He even leans forward, obviously interested in what he’s seeing, when Gary sneaks up on him.
Next, Sponge quickly switches to the soccer channel and nervously claims that she was looking for the sports channel and tells her pet that it is not what she thinks. But everyone knows that it is just that.
In chapter two of the first season of Kamp Koral, broadcast on Paramount Plus, Bob and Patrick cross paths with a pair of farmers named Darlina and Novi. They steal candy to produce a soothing drink called sugar cane. The effect it produces on the characters is quite peculiar because at the minimum contact with the taste buds, it makes them enter a state disconnected from reality, in addition to dilating their pupils. The references are quite clear.
Cups too many
The saying goes well: everything in excess is bad. This was experienced very closely by Bob and Patricio because, after arriving at a peanut bar, they started with a glass of ice cream. However, the count of jars and dessert jars rose above the reef and they ended up experiencing some uncontrolled consumption of the delicious sweet. This is something not very alien to reality.
