There are thousands of examples of Spongebob subliminal messages… well not literally thousands, but there are a lot.
This article will show and discuss the various videos highlighting these subliminal messages in Spongebob cartoons – from the theme song played in reverse, to various subliminal messages, adult themes, and sexual innuendos throughout (most of!) the episodes.
Well start with the theme tune – here is a video of it played in reverse, and analysed for subliminal messages:
Some pretty freaky messages there I think you’ll agree! Messages suggest a “small nutsack”, that “squidward smokes dope”, that there is “shit on your multi canable heart” and a few more, hey, take a look youself, althouhg most of them do seem a bit like gibberish.
Now onto the fun stuff. Here are some clips from episodes of Spongebob highlighting various subliminal messages – often relating to being gay, p***s jokes, and other “childish adult” humor.
This one shows Mr Krabs apparantly asking if there is “Any p**n in the store”. I think this one was intentional. It is fairly obvious that he really asks that question. You can hear for yourself when video is played in slow motion.
In conclusion we would say there are subliminal suggestions more than the commonly thought of “manipulative” subliminal messages in the Spongebob cartoons – most of them seem to hint at gay or just plain sexual references, which is mostly harmless and will go over the heads of most younger children anyway…
