Although series creator Stephen Hillenburg wanted the show to end after release of The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie to prevent it from "jumping the shark" and because SpongeBob SquarePants had peaked with the first movie, Nickelodeon wanted more episodes to be produced in accordance with high ratings and series-based merchandise sales. Thus, the show was renewed for a fourth season.[2] However, Hillenburg resigned as the showrunner and appointed Paul Tibbitt.[3]


In November 2004, Tom Kenny, Bill Fagerbakke, and the rest of the crew confirmed that they had completed four new episodes for broadcast on Nickelodeon in early 2005,[4][5] and planned to finish about 20 total for the then-fourth season.[4][5] In particular, Kenny said, "Kids were happy watching them for the 3,000th time. It was the parents who've been busting my chops for new episodes."[6] He remarked that it would be "the same show, the same sponge."[6]


The fourth season of the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants, created by former marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenburg, aired on Nickelodeon from May 6, 2005, to July 24, 2007, and contained 20 half-hour episodes. The series chronicles the exploits and adventures of the title character and his various friends in the fictional underwater city of Bikini Bottom. The season was executive produced by series creator Hillenburg, while writer Paul Tibbitt acted as the supervising producer and showrunner. The show underwent a hiatus on television as Hillenburg halted the production in 2002 to work on the film adaptation of the series, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. Once the film was finalized and the previous season had completed broadcast on television, Hillenburg wanted to end the show, but the success of the series led to more episodes, so Tibbitt took over Hillenburg's position as showrunner and began working on a fourth season for broadcast in 2005. Hillenburg remained with the show, but in a smaller advisory role in which he reviewed each episode and offered suggestions to the show's production crew.


Several compilation DVDs that contained episodes from the season were released. The SpongeBob SquarePants: Season 4, Volume 1 and 2 DVDs were released in Region 1 on September 12, 2006, and January 9, 2007, respectively, while the complete set was released in Region 2 on November 3, 2008, and Region 4 on November 7, 2008. The second volume was released in Region 1 before several episodes aired in the United States. On November 13, 2012, The Complete Fourth Season DVD was released in Region 1.


The season aired on Nickelodeon, which is owned by Viacom, and was produced by United Plankton Pictures and Nickelodeon Animation Studio. The season's executive producer was series creator Stephen Hillenburg.[1] In 2002, Hillenburg and the show's staff members decided to stop making episodes to work on the 2004 film The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, after completing the third season.[2] As a result, the show went into a two-year "self-imposed" production hiatus.[3] During the break on television, Nickelodeon expanded the programming for the third season to cover the delay, however, according to network executive Eric Coleman, "there certainly was a delay and a built-up demand."[4] Nickelodeon announced nine "as-yet-unaired" episodes would be shown during the break.[5]


In November 2004, Tom Kenny, Bill Fagerbakke, and the rest of the crew confirmed that they had completed four new episodes for broadcast on Nickelodeon in early 2005,[15][16] and planned to finish about 20 total for the then-fourth season.[15][16] In particular, Kenny said, "Kids were happy watching them for the 3,000th time.

SpongeBob's best friend, a starfish named Patrick Star, was voiced by Bill Fagerbakke,[22] while Rodger Bumpass played the voice of Squidward Tentacles, an arrogant and ill-tempered octopus.[23] Other members of the cast were Clancy Brown as Mr. Krabs, a miserly crab obsessed with money who is SpongeBob's boss at the Krusty Krab;[24] Mr. Lawrence as Plankton, a small green copepod and Mr. Krabs' business rival;[25] Jill Talley as Karen, Plankton's sentient computer sidekick;[26] Carolyn Lawrence as Sandy Cheeks, a squirrel from Texas;[27] Mary Jo Catlett as Mrs. Puff, SpongeBob's boating school teacher;[28] and Lori Alan as Pearl, a teenage whale who is Mr. Krabs' daughter.[29][30]
