Spongebob & Nuclear Bomb Theory

What if Spongebob Squarepants and all of his friends are a result of a nuclear explosion? Whale, let’s dive into this theory! You might think I’m being sealy, but I am just keeping it reel! Ok, I need to stop with these puns. Trust me, I’m not doing it on porpoise. I promise that’s it.Back on topic, what’s the reason all of our underwater friends talk and eat at the Krusty Krab? Is it because of a nuclear explosion? So first, let’s establish where the Bikini Bottom is. According to Nickelodeon, they made it of-fish-al that the Bikini Bottom is under the island, Bikini Atoll.

Here’s a quick history lesson. In 1946, there was an actual nuclear testing at the Bikini Atoll by America. They set off many bombs to see how much damage they would cause. There was one bomb, in particular, the “Baker”, that went 27 meters underwater. Where do all of our Bikini Bottom friends live? Underwater.

Suddenly, all of the bizarre things in the cartoon, Spongebob Squarepants start to make more sense. First, all the characters were originally just plain sea creatures. Until all the radiation from the explosion mutated them into underwater freaks. It even changed the landscape, allowing a pineapple to last longer underwater or to grow underwater.

Another piece of evidence to backup this theory is in the episode, “Dying for Pie”, there is actual footage of the Baker bomb at the Bikini Atoll.

So, now you will forever see Spongebob Squarepants in a whole different way.
But that’s just a theory, a “reel”y epic Spongebob one!

Did you know that Spongebob was originally going to be called SpongeBoy but that name was copyrighted by a mop!

    Yes, I totally agree with this. My only question is wouldn’t the pineapple, even if it is growing, die eventually?? It wouldn’t last that long, right?

      Lauren F, I believe that the water also mutated into water that allows pineapples to live longer without rotting in your case. In one episode, Spongebob’s pineapple does rot.
