Astrology with Squidward (partially lost series of animated shorts; 2000s)
Astrology with Squidward is a 2000 Nickelodeon series of interstitial shorts, where, during different times of the year during the original airing, Squidward Tentacles would explain the different parts of the Zodiac. The Zodiac symbols that are represented in the shorts, however, are just crudely designed versions of the main characters (like SpongeBob as Sagittarius and Patrick as Taurus), although Mr Krabs is represented in his normal design as Cancer, and two Ambulance Fish are represented in their normal design as Gemini.
Despite the shorts becoming nearly as popular as its predecessor, Nickelodeon made the decision to pull them from the air in 2001, but they later reappeared on their sister channel, Nicktoons, in 2002, where they continued airing until 2005. Having last aired at a time when recording television and Nicktoons' availability weren't as prevalent as they are now, several variants and entire shorts are missing. Six English shorts, six Russian-dubbed shorts, and two Polish-dubbed shorts have surfaced. There were also two shorts which are Libra (Squidward) and Virgo (Pearl) that also allegedly exist but are missing in all languages, although no proof exists.
Though it's not confirmed, Aquarius, Capricorn, Aries, and Scorpio may also exist, as they would complete the zodiac.
The surviving English, Russian, and Polish shorts are listed below.
