From SpongePedia, the First SpongeBob Wiki.
This is a list of cut/modified scenes from SpongeBob SquarePants.
Episodes of the Main Series
- Procrastination - In the original airing, right after SpongeBob said "Gee, this is harder than I thought." he would look out the window and see beautiful scenery of a beach, such as two jellyfish playing tennis, Gary riding a beach ball blowing a horn, & Patrick rubbing sunscreen on Sandy (wearing her helmet and her bikini) The other scenes deleted were shots of SpongeBob saying "I'll be one step closer to my driver's license!" and then showing a car crash, and SpongeBob doing calisthenics to "get some blood pumping in the old noggin." These scenes were deleted due to time constraints. However, the episode is included in its uncut form on all DVD releases.
- Just One Bite - The original airing showed a scene in which Squidward entered the closed Krusty Krab and commented on the lack of a security system, as it is only a bucket of water. However, the "water" is actually gasoline. A robot hand drops a match onto the gas and badly burns Squidward. He flees to the kitchen and the same thing happens. This was deleted due to its violent nature. This scene can easily be found on YouTube today, but it remains cut in TV airings.
- What Ever Happened to SpongeBob - In the original airing, after Patrick says "...that I spent all day baking." he adds that he will have to bake another cake that will "make my mom a day late!" Also, after SpongeBob develops a lump on his head, he says, before he's knocked out, "I better not hit my head again. That might cause a concession." These were most likely deleted due to time constraints.
- Grooming Gary - In the original airing, after saying "He usually only bites me." SpongeBob asks "Right, Gary?" This was deleted for unknown reasons.
- Overbooked - In the original airing, near the end of the episode, after saying "You hear that, SpongeBob? You can be in 3 places at once now!" Sandy asks "SpongeBob?" This scene was also deleted for unknown reasons.
- The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie - A deleted scene that appears in storyboard form on the movie's DVD release involves SpongeBob and Patrick meeting Sandy on dry land, with Sandy appearing as a real squirrel. Why this scene was deleted remains unknown.
