Top 10 Celebrities/Groups Most People Know Thanks to SpongeBob SquarePants

SpongeBob SquarePants is a popular children's cartoon that's been running on Nickelodeon for 18 years, with a total of 225 episodes, 11 seasons, two theatrical films and a ton of TV specials. It's still running to this day.

Many kids who grew up with SpongeBob probably know about these people/groups thanks to the show. I personally don't watch children's cartoons anymore cause I'm way too old, but I have noticed that many kids were introduced to these people through the show. If there's anyone I missed, feel free to add him/her.
