"The Humpback Hop" is a piece of SpongeBob SquarePants production music made by Theo Mondle for the season 3 episode "Party Pooper Pants."[1]

The Episode

In the episode, SpongeBob throws a house party, while trying to keep everything according to plan, he ends up getting locked out of his house he then tries to break into it, while attempting, he notices everyone's having a good time without him bossing them around. The police end up catching him attempting to break in and arrest him, the next morning he comes home to a trashed house and everyone else thanking him for the great party.

The Song

The scene where SpongeBob is looking into his house, a piece of background music briefly plays. Unlike most of the songs made for the series, this was never officially released in full as no official soundtracks from the series contained it.


For years, the full song went into obscurity until a user on the Spongebuddy Mania thread first posted about it in 2013.[2] The search led to finding out the songs name was "The Humpback Hop" and that Mondle didn't have the master for the track. Mondle also mentioned that he gave Stephen Hillenburg a demo CD that had the track in it when the episode was still in production.

On April 29th, 2023 the full song was found by YouTuber SpongeDivers Music where they uploaded onto their channel.[3]
