I have been watching episodes of Spongebob like crazy. (I mostly couldn't help it. Nickelodeon seems to have shown the damn sponge over 200,000 in a week.) But every episode seems to be "real" in a sense based on the cartoonists' mood at the time, as they seem very random. If they cause the apocalypse or destroy a town, the next episode will have everything alright, as if nothing happened.

There is a secret explanation to this.

It all starts with an episode where Manray was frozen in tartar sauce in one episode. Yes Spongebob frees Manray in that one episode but that was in the "present" at the time. In a LATER episode, much later, Spongebob and Patrick come across a time machine.

THIS TIME MACHINE IS SIGNIFICANT TO THE SERIES.

Back in time, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy were about to dump tartar sauce on Manray to stop him from controlling the city. But a folly involving Patrick's penchant for eating made things difficult, causing the present to go to crap. So this caused Sponge and Pat to go BACK IN TIME to stop Patrick from eating the tartar sauce. Another folly occured. And another. I don't remember ALL the details, but let's get to the main point of the episode.

THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS of Spongebobs and Patricks from DIFFERENT timelines eventually arrived at that time. THIS IS IMPORTANT SO STAY WITH ME.

Suppose each of them went back in their respective timeline. Each timeline would have a different direction for each of the thousand Spongebobs.

SO THE EPISODES MUST TAKE PLACE IN ONE OF THE ALTERNATE TIMELINES.

THIS MEANS THAT SPONGEBOB REALLY DIED VIA GHOSTLY ATOM BOMB, WORKED AT THE CRUSTY CRAB UNTIL HE BECAME A SKELETON, DESTROYED BIKINI BOTTOM, TURNED PLANKTON INTO A BABY, ETC.

ALL IN DIFFERENT TIMELINES.

So anything that's permanent, actually happened to Spongebob.

And that also means Squidward accidentally nuked/bombed the shit out of Bikini Bottom when he gave Spongebob that pie.

But yeah. That just blew my mind right there. Minus the fact that cartoons are just generally non-continuous in general, but it's still a very interesting theory.

Guys, I...I have a confession to make.

I was an intern at Nickelodeon Studios when Spongebob began. A little-known fact is that Andrew Hussie was as well. He kept trying to insert themes of death, time travel, and bizarre alien romance into Spongebob, but failed--aside from what was mentioned in the OP, anyway.

While at a garage sale, I saw an unlabeled yellow DVD. The old man at the sale commanded me to take it and leave.

What I saw on that DVD was shocking, dear Julers. I puked at least a dozen times. I did manage to get one screenshot before my eyes started bleeding, though--I hope it helps you unravel the mysteries of Bikini Bottom, and the truth behind both Spongebob Squarepants and Homestuck.



I've no idea what any of it means, or what was meant by "canon" in this context. Please help me--I feel my time is short.

Sincerely,
An Anonymous Intern

P.S.: And then a skeleton popped out.
