Sponge Bob no Pants

Sponge Bob no Pants

This picture of a boy was taken in Flinders Street Station. He was with his mum and sis and were waiting for the train to come. I took pictures of him without him realizing for the first few seconds. This picture is one of the most natural post while he was running around even though his face was not looking towards the camera, it was good in the sense that I can take some shots of him before he actually saw me and stop running.

SpongeBob SquarePants is a sponge who lives in a Pineapple, while his octopus[1] neighbor Squidward Tentacles lives in a moai head. SpongeBob's other neighbor and best friend (on the other side of Squidward), is a pink starfish named Patrick , who lives under a rock. Squidward always gets annoyed when SpongeBob and Patrick bother him.

SpongeBob's house-pet is a snail named Gary, whose "meow" is similar to a cat. Although Gary only speaks in a few episodes, the characters have shown an ability to understand him. In addition to this, underwater worms bark exactly like dogs, and are kept on chains. Jellyfish are the equivalent of Bees; buzzing, stinging with poison although appears to be an electric shock, and producing delicious "jelly", mocking the name "jellyfish", while still referencing a bee's honey. Fish act as the citizens of the community but, as a rule, are not important characters.

SpongeBob works as a fry cook at the Krusty Krab, a hamburger fast-food restaurant, with Squidward Tentacles who is the cashier. The Krusty Krab is owned by Eugene Krabs, also known as Mr. Krabs. Sheldon J. Plankton (commonly referred to as "Plankton") is Mr. Krabs' arch enemy who owns a low-rank fast-food restaurant called The Chum Bucket across the street which has never had a customer, and he spends most of his time plotting to steal the recipe for Mr. Krabs's popular Krabby Patty burgers.

SpongeBob is the only cartoon to consistently make the Top 10 list in the Nielsen ratings, and is the first "low budget" Nickelodeon cartoon, according to the network, to become extremely popular.

The motion simulator/interactive movie ride "Escape from Dino-Island 3D" at Six Flags Over Texas was turned into "SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D", with water squirts, real bubbles, and other sensory enhancements. LEGO received license to produce SpongeBob SquarePants building sets, beginning to sell them in May 2006.
