Did you know that the guy who created Spongebob Squarepants is a marine biology teacher? The creator of the hit cartoon series is Stephen Hillenburg who graduated from Humboldt State University in 1984. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Natural Resource Planning and Interpretation. He then became a marine biology teacher at the Orange County Marine Institute (now the Ocean Institute) in Dana Point, California. His interest in marine life combined with art led him to write and illustrate stories. These would eventually lead to the creation of the Spongebob cartoons we know today. In fact, Spongebob Squarepants is now the fifth longest-running cartoon series in the US. The series has won four Emmy awards and has earned more than $12 billion in merchandising revenue.

Spongebob also hit the movies as in 2004, Hillenburg wrote and directed SpongeBob SquarePants the Movie. The film grossed more than $140 million which led to a second movie. The next film grossed $323.4 million worldwide. It was also the second-highest-grossing film based on an animated television show, beaten only by The Simpsons Movie. In 2016, SpongeBob was also adapted as a Broadway musical show, with songs by Cyndi Lauper and Steven Tyler. Indeed, the Spongebob Squarepants has expanded worldwide and is well-loved by fans.
