5 Relatable Spongebob Moments


Like many of you, watching Spongebob was a staple of our young lives. I frequently watched the show and thought it was hilarious due to it overdramatic humor. As a kid I thought it was unrealistic. Yet, as I have grown older, I realized the truth: Spongebob is pragmatic. In this post I will go over 5 scenes that are relatable to us as adults.

1. The Lid

Have you ever been given a simple task and yet it seems difficult to you and you continue to make the same mistakes? In season 2 episode 23 "Big Pink Loser" Patrick had the same problem when he was tasked to find the lid at the Krusty Krab.

2. Wumbo!

On the other hand instead of working on an easy task, you are given a difficult one and you wish that you could switch it to wumbo and have all your problems easily fixed. In season 3 episode 5 "Mermaidman and Barnacleboy IV" spongebob takes Mermaidman belt and causes everyone to become mini by shooting the laser in the belt. Patrick's epiphany to get them large again was to switch M to W.

3.  Weenie Hut Jr's.

 For the days that you think you are tough enough to do something hard. Like attempting a personal record at bench press, asking for a promotion, or telling your child "no", but then reality kicks in an reminds you that you belong to Super Weenie Hut Jr's. In season 3 episode 48 Spongebob wants to enter The Salty Spitoon, but the bouncer, Reg, rejects Spongebob and directs him to Super Weenie Hut Jr's. 

4. Spongebob Procrastination

I don't think I need to go over this one much, but most of us have been in school and their has always been that one assignment that we did not want to do, so we procrastinate. Like me needing to write my dissertation. In season 2 episode 37 called Procrastination, Spongebob is given a writing assignment from driving school to write an 800 word essay. Like any student he wastes his time trying to get this assignment done.

5. Here lies Squidward's Hope and Dreams

I find this one purely funny and still somewhat relatable. When we are children we have huge hopes and dreams, but as we grow older we learn what we are good at and what profession we can make from that. As we make a destination to our careers our childhood dreams are put to rest. In season 3 episode 46 "One Krabs Trash" while Mr. Krabs is looking for buried treasure he comes across Squidward leaving flowers for his hopes and dreams. 

I hope that you found theses scenes funny and relatable. What other scenes do you find yourself quoting often and why?
