SpongeBob SquarePants is the main fictional character from the show named after him. He is a sponge (that is shaped like a scourer) that is jolly, goofy, buoyant, and idiotic which is the reason he gets into deep trouble. SpongeBob is 12-years-old (roughly 13) but still acts like he is only five.


SpongeBob is a yellow sea sponge (although he most resembles a kitchen sponge) with olive green holes on his face. He apparently has black hair (stated on his driver's license) however, in most times it varies to yellow. He has blue eyes, is four inches tall, and weighs one oz. His driver's license expires on 12-11-03.


SpongeBob was born on July 14, 1986 (according to his driver's license). At one point in his life, he use to live with his parents. He is a high school graduate, even though he is only 12. When SpongeBob moved into 124 Conch Street, it is suggested that SpongeBob became immediate friends with Squidward and THEN Patrick Star. He is a student at Mrs. Puff’s Boating School and an employee at the Krusty Krab.


SpongeBob and Patrick regularly go Jellyfishing when he has days off (normally on Sunday's).[1] SpongeBob says he's caught, named and let go every jellyfish at least once. He catches them in an open piece of land called Jellyfish Fields. This has a population of 4 million jellyfish. SpongeBob also like playing karate with his mammal friend, Sandra 'Sandy' Cheeks.
