SpongeBob SquarePants' appearance in his television show meant that his minifigure required an unusual design. He bears the shorter, non-articulated legs typically seen on child minifigures. Instead of a regular head, he has a unique sandwichboard-like part featuring his face that connects to the "neck" and slips down over the torso.
SpongeBob lives in a pineapple under the sea. Eternally cheerful and optimistic, he constantly gets on the nerves of his egotistical and depressing next-door neighbor, Squidward. They both work at the Krusty Krab for the miserly, manipulative Mr. Krabs. SpongeBob's best friends are Patrick Star, a dopey, overweight starfish, and Sandy Cheeks, a spunky Texan "land squirrel" who lives in an air-filled glass dome just outside of SpongeBob's home town of Bikini Bottom. Frequent themes in the show include SpongeBob's never-ending efforts to get his boating license, and various devious attempts by Mr. Krabs' arch-nemesis, Plankton, to steal the recipe for the popular Krabby Patty.
- Despite SpongeBob's near-obsessive devotion to his work, his beloved spatula has not been featured in a LEGO set.
- SpongeBob is voiced by Tom Kenny, who also voiced The Riddler in LEGO Batman: The Video Game, Nathan Evo and Jetbug in LEGO Hero Factory: Ordeal of Fire, and Doc Ock in the Ultimate Spider-Man animated television series.
- In the show, he has white sleeves, but as a physical minifigure, he doesn't have any sleeves.
