To start with we should speak about the principle hero of the story that is Spongebob. In fact, he is just a sponge but not an ordinary one. Though he is supposed to be a marine creature, his look is more of an everyday sponge used at home. But it never made his fans think like that. His personality is so lively and energetic that he is appealing to everyone from the first sight. He lives in a pineapple and has a snail pet that sounds like a cat. Spongebob is always so optimistic about everything, he rarely gets angry or feel sad and even if he does it last not long. He always makes others laugh, even his appearance is already the most comical one. Every situation where he participates is funny and absurd at the same time.
He has many friends though his best friend is Patrick. It is a starfish with an unusual design. Patrick is rather fat with colorful pants and lacks mental abilities, though he considers himself very clever one. He lives under a stone the way starfishes are supposed to be in the water. Spongebob and Patrick are very close and do everything together. Just imagine two crazy friends at the same place.
Spongebob works as a fry cook and he likes this position very much. No one can defeat him in the kitchen, though the only person who dislikes him takes advantage of every situation to take his place. It is Squidward. A character that is always is made fun of though he hates jokes and all the funny things. All he loves is peace, silence and his favorite instrument. Definitely Spongebob is too noisy for him and unfortunately they are neighbors and live next door.
One of the major characters is Mr. Krabs that runs a business and has a bar where Spongebob works. He is obsessed with money and he is ready for everything just for a dollar. He has a crazy rival that owns another bar and usually tries surpass his opponent with dirty methods. It is a little Plankton who hates everyone and always complains about others. Their never-ending rivalry causes many troubles for the inhabitants.
Mrs. Puff owns a boating school that is like driving. Spongebob constantly tempts to finish a course and get a certificate but he continues failing, but never gives up. Everyone drives a boat and he always walks everywhere.
Sandy is also a close friend to the hero though she is not local. She is a squirrel who lives in a special glass made home with air in it. When she is out she wears a special costume as she cannot breathe under water. Sandy is crazier than her friends and she always finds something to have fun with.
The animation differs with its unique style and extraordinary design. The actions take place under water and creators tried to make everything corresponding to marine life. Like inhabitants live in boat like places and they are creatures often occurring in the ocean. In fact, the city Spongebob lives is said to be a real existing location in the Pacific Ocean. However, the city has roads and even cloud like elements in the air. Creatures wear funny clothes and walk like people. Besides their houses there are two restaurants, a boating school and ridiculously made beach where different fishes go to swim and sunbathe. All the details in the setting are thoroughly thought. Creators tried to make it realistic and funny. Though great part of events takes place in pineapple or in the restaurant.
