The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie is an animated film that was released on November 19, 2004 by Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures. BBC One censored the movie in order to make it more family friendly. Off topic but did you know, this movie was originally intended as the series finale. But since the creators had to much good ideas to last more seasons, Stephen Hillenberg decided to order more episodes.

Censorship[]

Production Censorship[]

  • When Krabs said that a customers order started out as simple one (a krabby patty with cheese) he says there is no cheese in there. what was cut was spongebob saying “So what went wrong?” Before the rest of the scene continues as normal (he said this before krabs revealed there was no cheese). For some reason, this line is kept in the video game.
  • An Additional shot with spongebob showing Patrick the calendar.
  • A Short 20 second scene showing Spongebob walk to the Krusty krab.
  • When Phil is asked about his family, he originally said “Yeah yeah I have a lovely wife and two beautiful children” which was shortened to just “I have a wife and two beautiful children”
  • Afterwards, spongebob said “I’ve only got one shot at this, I have the right tool for the job. Bingo! The Bingo part was complete.
  • a 5 second scene of spongebob putting melted cheese in the Krabby Patty. This is used in the trailer and was completed.
  • during the ceremony, spongebob originally said: This is the Grand opening ceremony of the krusty krab 2 and the announcement of a new manager! Instead he says This is the Grand opening ceremony where Mr. Krabs will announce a new manager!
  • Originally Squidwards Area Manager Badge said “Area Manager Squidward”
  • A Shot of an Airplane that says: Congragulations, Squidward, on your new promotion to area manager!
  • Spongebob in the goofy goober depressed, sings “goofy goober yeah” while sad. Also, originally the camera was in front of spongebob instead of behind and the line was dubbed over (but you can still see some mostly unnoticeable lip sync).
  • a scene where Patrick gets his toy thrown at him and spongebob hears, “Triple Gooberberry sunrise” were added later in the film.
  • Spongebob originally said “ah, boy Pat” in the animatics but the “ah” was removed from the final movie.
  • An Extended line from Karen: I Hate to be the one to tell you but my sensors indicate that spongebob and his pink friend have made it past the county line!
  • When Spongebob and Patrick were getting tipsy from the Triple Gooberberry Sunrise (it had whiskey), he called the waiter a Bartender instead.
  • An Extended Version of the scene of spongebob and Patrick with the goofy goober. What was cut was spongebob yelling “let me hear you out people!” Before a son asks his mother if they can leave. Spongebob then calls the waiter on them. This part was replaced with The “it’s a little ditty called” line. Other than this change, it’s just a few additional and extended shots of the scene that were cut as well.
  • After spongebob wakes up in the goofy goober bar, a extended version of a conversation is shown below: Bartender: Hey, Wake up Pal! Spongebob: (Groans) Ugh. My head hurts. Bartender: I’m Trying to Get Outta Here! Spongebob: I would like a double fudge spinny please. Bartender: Listen Pal it’s 8 in the morning! Go scoop up your friend and get going!
  • There was an additional shot of squid ward being promoted as manager for the Krusty krab 2 where he has a cake and puts it on the table.
  • When Spongebob is playing with the soap dispenser in the bar, when the song begins, the second “olololo yeyeye was cut.
  • One of the people in the bar originally said “I’m Gonna find out who did it” but was changed to “Somebody in here ain’t a real man!”
  • When Spongebob tells Patrick not to sing along during the test, he reffers to him by “Pat”.
  • After Squidward finds out about planktons plan, a biker says “that’s right” and drives off. Squidward than says another line not in the final movie “something smells fishy around here, and for once it isn’t my long break.
  • When Squidward enters the krusty krab 2.0, he sees plankton working there, much to his surprise, this is where a line was shortened” So You’re selling the krab by patties huh plankton? (The bold parts are cut)
  • After Spongebob and Patrick stop laughing about Victors Intimidation: there was a unused line “How About when he was like “looks like we have ourselves a double baby!” Before Patrick said “and then he was like “it wasn’t us, it wasn’t us!” (These 2 lines were both cut)
  • Patrick saying “hi” to one of the skulls is not in the Uncut Version. SpongeBobs response wasn’t either.
  • Originally, Patrick stayed silent when spongebob fell into the car. But these few frames were redrawn to have him ask if he got the ice cream (he didn’t)
  • The Beginning of “Now That were Men” had the extended intro from the background soundtrack “Fight! Fight! Fight!”
  • When Patrick’s Pants are Ripped off, it shows the monster that ripped it off (this deleted scene would have been an homage to the ripped pants episode)
  • The Ending of now that were men had alternate shots from completely different angles but the audio stays unaltered.
  • Originally, Polly was a Puppet like in the show rather than a real parrot
  • The Infamous Sandy scene. When the two come across a computer animated sandy, Patrick is disgusted and spongebob asks sandy where they should go to get back To bikini bottom. She says to take a bus and that she would go with them, but has a story arc of her own. She spots exterminators and shoots them while spongebob and Patrick are being chased by human versions of themselves and find Dave Hasselhoff to use to escape their human counterparts. This is probably not the biggest change but is the most well known deleted scene.
  • A Additional Shot of David Hasselhoff jumping out of the water like a dolphin.
  • Originally the finale had the song Morning Glory playing and the scene was about 35 seconds longer.
  • An Alternate Ending. Originally Eugene Harold Krabs would enter SpongeBobs bedroom while wearing the manager hat.

Where to find it uncensored[]

The DVD's are completly uncensored, and the theatrical version was also completly uncensored. As for Production censorship, There is no uncut version unfortunately. Although, it would be a nice dedication to Stephen Hillenberg (assuming he doesn’t mind an extended cut of this film)
