I remember seeing him in a wheelchair looking significantly older than he does in this image right here when he was at this year's Super Bowl. I don't exactly hate him, but I don't think he'll last very long. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

RIP - Maddox121

I just found out he died last week. R.I.P - 3DG20

He has ALS and I heard that he might not live for another few months. He is the creator of SpongeBob and he just recently returned working on SpongeBob trying to get back to where it was Pre-2005. If he does die, I think SpongeBob might go back to about 2009 or older quality. But I do think SpongeBob should have been cancelled a long time ago but that's the only thing that's popular on Nickelodeon besides The Crap House. - TheLoudHouseSucks

Sadly, while we all don't want him to to, it's most likely that he won't last long with his ALS disease. My condolences to him and his family once again for this tragedy of theirs. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
