Fan Theories

Let’s discuss about a few more fan theories because that is what we have been doing till now –

In Fan Theories Wiki , it is stated that : 

Theory 1

Bob was the name of SpongeBob’s human counterpart. Bob was a good-natured young man who worked in a school cafeteria with two other persons. He kept a pet snail named Gary as well.

He was riding his bike one sunny day when he suddenly out of nowhere crashed into a tree. This happened while he was riding down a steep hill, and as a result he went into a coma.

He died two weeks later. In his sea-creature counterpart – he works at the Krusty Krab restaurant, and keeps a pet sea snail named Gary.

Theory 2

This hypothesis offers an explanation for what many viewers see as a negative shift in SpongeBob’s character starting in the fourth season.

He starts off as a capable, educated, and somewhat naive guy, but as the programme goes on, he starts to lose his ability to think. According to this idea, the elderly SpongeBob passed away in the well-known death scene from the 2004 movie.

And gradually SpongeBob’s personality changes, and his inability to age could both be explained by the fact that he was replaced by a clone/baby of his due to the fact that sponges are capable of asexual reproduction.

He is a youngster, which also explains why he is becoming more and more foolish.

This explains why SpongeBob was never managed or what transpired after the first game are never mentioned.
