I did write about others Spongebob Squarepants fact on another blog post. However, there are still many facts about this cartoon series and I will write about it one by one in the future!
Here are 6 unique facts behind the cartoon "SpongeBob Squarepants"
SpongeBob's character was created by Steve Hillenburg, a marine biologist and former science teacher who then continued his studies to an art school to study cartoons. Like SpongeBob, Hillenburg once worked as a cook at a seafood restaurant.
Hillenburg, who really likes to draw marine life, thinks that sponges are "the strangest" creatures of all creatures on this earth. But he felt that the form of a lumpy sponge was not right for the character he wanted to create. A sponge that sank into the water turned out to look perfect, so clean and so square, like SpongeBob that was visibly innocent and not hip.
SpongeBob lives in a pineapple house because pineapple is a common motif in Polynesian crafts. In addition, Hillenburg thought that SpongeBob "liked" his house with pineapple flavor. while smear is a very important sense for marine animals.
Tom Kenny, who dubbed SpongeBob's voice, said that the laughter in his character was intended to make the audience remember the sea. This is based on the distinctive sound of calls to call dolphins, which are the sounds of seagulls.
