SpongeBob SquarePants is a very special animated program. It is something that the whole family can watch, and there is a lot of binge-worthy material. Each episode offers up something unique and entertaining, which is more than you can say about some series these days. It has managed to stand the test of time and keep running for a long time. As a result, there is a multi-generational fan base built into the show. It also has another advantage - it has a whole host of name opportunities for your dog. You cannot get more creative than the names on this list!
SpongeBob SquarePants Dog Names in Pop Culture
Do you know everything there is to know about SpongeBob SquarePants? You may pride yourself on being a super fan, or at least remember all the major plot points. Either way, there is a lot more than meets the eye when it comes to the show. For now, though, we will be focusing on the numerous celebrity guest stars. That’s right- Bikini Bottom has had to roll out the red carpet more than once. Some of the biggest A-listers include Kirsten Wiig, David Bowie, and Victoria Beckham. This may come as a bit of a surprise, but Bikini Bottom is a good place to meet some of your favorite celebrities. One may take you by surprise, and he will be the focus of this fun fact. Johnny Depp starred in SpongeBob’s 10th-anniversary special. “SpongeBob vs. The Big One” aired in April 2009. Children and parents alike were surprised to hear Depp voice an enigmatic surf instructor, Jack Kahuna Laguna. So that’s what Captain Jack Sparrow gets up to in his spare time. In any case, Johnny Depp proved himself to be quite the fan of the show. This obviously had an impact on his fans, since Depp spends a lot of time in the spotlight.
And he isn’t the only one. Recently, his dogs were also in the spotlight. Boo and Pistol, his beloved Yorkshire Terriers, were supposed to join him on the set of the latest “Pirates of The Caribbean” movie. Unfortunately, there was a mix up with the papers at the airport and the dogs were not allowed into the country. Depp and his wife, Amber Heard were caught in a bit of a scandal. In the middle of it all, Boo and Pistol were just happy to see their father again. We can sympathize with him since he only wanted to see his dogs again, but that does not excuse their actions, of course. What would Jack Kahuna Laguna say? No matter what the future holds, at least we will always have “SpongeBob vs. The Big One”. Thankfully, Pistol and Boo are out of the spotlight and are happily reunited with their owners. Most dogs don’t bother to watch the news, let alone star in headlines for weeks. Then again, most dogs haven't flown about in private jets to go visit their owners on movie sets. At least they won’t have to ride the big wave home!
SpongeBob SquarePants Dog Name Considerations
SpongeBob has been on television since 1999. This means a few things. Firstly, the SpongeBob show is about 19 years old, although it does not feel like it. And secondly, there are a lot of characters on the show: the regulars, our beloved main cast, and a bunch of celebrity guest stars and temporary characters. This is a massive achievement, and a true testament to the show. It has managed to capture the attention of children for years and stay relevant despite the changing nature of pop culture. Whereas other cartoons have resorted to cheap tricks and cringe-worthy attempts at sounding relevant, SpongeBob has stayed on top with his goofy laugh.
He has earned his spot in our hearts, and one cannot be prouder to be SpongeBob fans - no matter how old you are. When the theme song begins playing, watch everyone in the nearby vicinity rush over to sing along. Watching it when you are older brings back a feeling of warm nostalgia. So, why shouldn’t your dog receive a name from such a worthy franchise? We have chosen some of the best names from the long-running television series, and even a few from some of the movies. Take your pick.
