  • Today we look at the history of SpongeBob SquarePants, let's begin!

  • It all starts way, way, way, way, way, way, way back!

  • Meet Primitive Sponge.

  • [screaming]

  • SpongeBob's oldest known ancestor.

  • Although quite similar to SpongeBob in appearance,

  • note the sloping forehead, considerable overbite and fanged teeth.

  • Primitive Sponge was not known as the most intelligent creature in the sea,

  • communicating in a series of growls and grunts.

  • [screaming]

  • However he was noticeably strong with quite a high tolerance for pain.

  • [screaming]

  • [screaming]

  • OK, please stop doing that, it's clearly very painful.

  • This was the beginning of the long line of SquarePants ancestry.

  • As we travel further up the coral tree of life,

  • many generations have passed and we finally arrive at SpongeGar.

  • The next evolution in the SquarePants lineage.

  • As you can see, SpongeGar is already closer in appearance to SpongeBob

  • then his primordial predecessor.

  • SpongeGar was far more advanced than Primitive Sponge,

  • which was evidenced by the development of clothes,

  • - a language system, - Banooga ready!

  • tool usage, curiosity for new discoveries and the domestication of animals.

  • It's interesting how much bigger prehistoric Gary was,

  • compared to modern day Gary, but that's for another episode.

  • [screaming]

  • [crashing]

  • It's also important to note that SpongeGar,

  • along with his oddly familiar friends, Patar and Squog,

  • had a monumental impact on global history and discovered fire!

  • [screaming]

  • Now we travel even further up the three, many generations later.

  • Much, much later...

  • You get the point... anyways, we finally get to SpongeBuck SquarePants.

  • Howdy do, y'all!

  • Very similar to SpongeBob in appearance,

  • apart from the red bowtie, striped shirt,

  • this little chain thingy and black bowler hat.

  • Now SpongeBuck was something of a western hero in his time.

  • Saving the town of Dead Eye Gulch

  • from Dead Eye Plankton years and years ago.

  • [screaming]

  • Huh?

  • [cheering]

  • I hate all of you.

  • In fact, he's the only known SquarePants descendant

  • to live outside of Bikini Bottom.

  • Meaning somewhere between SpongeGar and SpongeBuck,

  • the SquarePants clan migrated elsewhere.

  • Now fast forward sometime and we will reach

  • the patriarch of the modern SquarePants family, Grandpa SquarePants.

  • Aside from his wise sayings such as...

  • If we were meant to fly, we'd have propellers on our heads

  • or jet engines on our backs!

  • Not much is known about Grandpa SquarePants

  • and he has not been seen for some time.

  • We do know that he married a sponge now known as Grandma SquarePants.

  • - SpongeBob! - Hi, Grandma!

  • A loving, motherly figure of Bikini Bottom.

  • Known for her kisses...

  • [kissing]

  • - Her cookies.. - Oh, yeah!

  • [munching]

  • And her sweaters which are made with love in each stitch.

  • It's important to note that SpongeBob also had a maternal grandmother,

  • Grandma BubbleBottom.

  • Unfortunately all records have been lost on Grandma BubbleBottom.

  • The only thing we know is that her child is Margaret BubbleBottom.

  • But more on that later.

  • Back to grandpa and grandma SquarePants.

  • Travel up one generation and they had children of their own!

  • There's Blue SquarePants, an old retired police captain.

  • You're not cut out for this kind of work, boy.

  • Do you have any idea what the people I catch do to people like you?

  • You mean, they won't give me a push on the swing set?

  • Well, let's just say, I hope you've practiced walking without legs.

  • Or arms.

  • Or a body.

  • Sherm SquarePants, who's claim to fame is shoving watermelons up his nose.

  • And SpongeBob's father, Harold SquarePants.

  • A simple man who likes to take care of his son.

  • He married Margaret SquarePants, maiden name BubbleBottom,

  • after the previously mentioned, grandma BubbleBottom.

  • SpongeBob! Hi, honey, we're here!

  • Come on, SpongeBob!

  • Hurry, hurry, son, your mother has dinner waiting.

  • And that brings us to the sponge that everyone knows and loves.

  • SpongeBob SquarePants!

  • But it turns out SpongeBob is not the only SquarePants his age!

  • No, he has plenty of cousins.

  • There's Stanley S. SquarePants, son of Sherm SquarePants.

  • Thankfully the watermelon shoving thing was not hereditary.

  • Although Stanley comes with his own set of peculiarities.

  • One being that he destroys almost everything he touches.

  • - Glad to meet you, partner. - Nice to meet you--

  • [ripping]

  • Uh-oh.

  • Gosh, darn it!

  • There's Todd SquarePants, parents unknown.

  • Who is very similar to SpongeBob in appearance

  • with a slightly quirkier style.

  • And then there's BlackJack SquarePants,

  • parents also unknown but a cousin nonetheless!

  • Did you come here to quiver like a jellyfish?

  • Or did you come to wrestle?

  • To quiver!

  • It doesn't stop for a second, look back at the crazy set of events

  • that came together in just the right way to give us this absorbent and yellow

  • and porous best friend we all have.

  • We realize that back is not the only direction we can look.

  • That's right, thanks to our special time machine,

  • we can go into the future and take a glimpse

  • at future generations of the SquarePants lineage.

  • If we take our time machine... oh, let's say...

  • 75 years later.

  • We come to realize that SpongeBob will have a grandson!

  • Simply known as SpongeBob's grandson.

  • Ssh!

  • I just beat my high score!

  • Oh, yeah!

  • The kids today!

  • Oh, man, look at those eyebrows and that ear hair!

  • Woah, that is gross!

  • Er... sorry, er, excuse me, where was I?

  • And if we take a look even further, say...

  • 2000 years later.

  • SpongeBob evolves into a robot species.

  • I am SpongeTron.

  • Welcome to the future!

  • Who apparently have the ability to multiply!

  • - Jellyfishing! - Jellyfishing!

  • Did somebody say jellyfishing?

  • Hi, Patron!

  • Woah, that's a lot of SpongeTrons!

  • Future!

  • Future!

  • Future--

  • Thanks.

  • Well, that's it!

  • Join us next time as we discover the interesting ancestry

  • in yet another fascinating chapter of Nickelodeon's history

  • on Nick Family Tree!

Today we look at the history of SpongeBob SquarePants, let's begin!
