The Top Ten

1 The seven main characters are based off of the seven deadly sins

They really are. They said it on the season 1 DVD on the commentary for "Plankton! ". - Garythesnail

Mr. Krabs is greed. Plankton is envy. Sandy is pride. Squidward is wrath. Patrick is sloth. Gary is gluttony. And SpongeBob is lust. - Kevie16

2 SpongeBob was born on July 14, 1986

I know in the movie he has a ton of employee of the month plaques that would make him like 47 or something, but in one episode we see that SpongeBob's date of birth is July 14th, 1986 on his drivers license. This means that he was 13 when the show started and he is now 28. - Kevie16

Wow. SpongeBob is getting old! - funnyuser

After the 2nd movie, I really want Stephen Hillenburg to make SpongeBob act like a 28-year old. - FasterThanSonic

I love spongbob and I didn't know he was that old

Why not make him his son when spongebob gets married

5 Tom Kenny, the voice of Spongebob, and Jill Talley, the voice of Karen, are married in real life

This isn't really a fact that you have to think about or look for in the show, but it is still cool and a happy fact. - Kevie16

I guess Plankton is jealous, eh? - Garythesnail

That's amazing! I didn't know that!

6 There is a fungi discovered in 2011 named after Spongebob, Spongiforma Squarepantsii

7 The Krusty Krab is a lobster or crab trap

If you think about how Mr. Krabs spends most of his time here, this one can be kind of creepy. - Kevie16

This means that Bikini Bottom is technically a real place. It is at the sea floor under Bikini Atoll, so basically it is Bikini Bottom. - Kevie16

9 Mr. Krabs is 71 as of November 30th, 2013
