Probably one of the more famous examples on this list, the episode "Reef Blower", which is a completely silent episode of the series (meaning it has no dialogue) was originally supposed to contain dialogue, but the audio recording equipment was damaged and the writers decided to re-write the episode into its current form to get around this setback.

===I Was a Teenage Gary===
 +
This episode was notorious for scaring children because of the scene that shows SpongeBob's seemingly painful and grotesque transformation into a snail. For years, there were rumors that in the original airing, there was an extra scene that depicted Squidward's transformation as well, but was cut in re-run's due to being too scary to children.

+
A common piece of "evidence" for this supposed deleted scene is that there is an odd transition placed when Squidward gets hit with the needle, that immediately cuts to him being a snail. Some say that this is a remnant of the edit, though others disregard this as just poor transition placement. Some say that the episode still airs in its original version in Poland, but this was later proven to be false as well. Some even claimed to have footage of the missing scene.

====Debunking====
Originally there was a scene in this episode that showed Squidward talking to Sandy before Spongebob does. It was removed for unknown reasons.
+
The Polish airing of this episode was found on a [http://bajki-online.com.pl/bajka-SpongeBob-13.html website] which hosts Polish dubs of children shows and movies, and it does not contain the scene in question. It was also determined that any footage of the episode that claims to contain the scene is very likely to be faked.
  
== I Was a Teenage Gary ==
+
Then on June 12th, 2016, A YouTube user known as 90sGiveMeGoosebumps uploaded a video containing proof that this scene is fake. He insists that this is from the original airing and he also claims to have more ''SpongeBob'' Season One premieres on VHS tapes.

90sGiveMeGoosebumps has also dumped the whole premiere of Scaredy Pants /I Was A Teenage Gary onto multiple file sharing sites, permanently debunking the theory about the scene.<ref>[http://mega.nz/#!uEp2WbrA!B3X8X4-w88vQkKGyDqwZpHL7XuoM24Vf8FLViaPiW_Q The MEGA link to the premiere of Scaredy Pants /I Was A Teenage Gary.]</ref><ref>[http://www.mediafire.com/?dv3aw4dnhi6robv The Mediafire link to the premiere of Scaredy Pants /I Was A Teenage Gary.]</ref>
  
Some say that the episode still airs in its original version in Poland, though no footage of the Polish version currently exists online, so these claims can't be confirmed.

===Texas===
 +
In the scene when SpongeBob doesn't want Sandy to leave before following her to the bus, there were several frames of anticipation cut. Cels and sketches have appeared on eBay. Twitter user [https://twitter.com/LarryInc64/status/987218658207420416 LarryInc64] attempted to recreate the scene using the material found.
  
No consensus has ever been reached regarding this scene, being that VHS copy of the original airing has ever surfaced there is no definitive proof for either side of the argument, and the scene remains unconfirmed to this day.

Supposedly, the original airing of this episode ended with a dead fish whose shoes are being strung up. In future reruns the scene was removed and replaced with a scene where only the dead fish's shoes are seen.
 
  
Similar to the transformation scene from "I Was a Teenage Gary", this scene remains unconfirmed, and no video evidence exists to prove it.

===Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy II===
 +
Storyboard artist Jay Lender shared storyboards of several deleted scenes from Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy II.<ref>[https://twitter.com/JayLender1/status/1164581915820617728 Jay Lender's Twitter post showing the storyboards of deleted scenes.]</ref>
  
==Hibernation Week ==
+
The first deleted scene shows SpongeBob's Krabby Patty statues of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy getting eating by the judges. According to Jay, Stephen Hillenburg told him that the Krabby Patty statues were a funny enough visual and to "not put a gag on a gag." The host was also an animated background character design instead of the realistic fish head. A cel on eBay of the original host was found, possibly implying this scene was fully animated before being replaced. A painting of the original Krabby Patty statues was also found, further backing up this possibility.<ref>[https://twitter.com/JayLender1/status/1164207653720956928 Jay Lender's Twitter post showing the patty statue scene.]</ref>
According to the Season 2 DVD commentary, during the scene when Sandy is raking leaves, she originally was meant to make the symbol for "Girl Power" but it was changed to "Texas". Sandy was also originally did a whole dance routine when she was stepping on the leaves, but it was cut due to time constraints.

This episode also had an alternate ending that was replaced for unknown reasons, instead of Spongebob laughing when he realized Sandy went into hibernation, he said "Why I oughta!".
+
A second deleted scene involved SpongeBob, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy looking at a dam and SpongeBob pulling out the plug, causing a flood. No production material of this scene has been found, so it may have not been animated.

A third deleted scene the had the three stopping a bank robber. Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy try to stop the robber with a water ball, but accidentally hit SpongeBob, causing him to absorb the water and crush them. Background of the Bikini Bottom First Nautical Bank was found, meaning this scene could've been animated.
During the original airing of this episode, Spongebob said "No more getting nailed!" as Patrick was hammering a nail into his head. The line was changed to "No more getting mail!" in subsequent airings because of the sexual overtones to the joke. The scene where Patrick hammered a nail into his head was also replaced with a scene of him sucking his thumb.

A fourth deleted scene had Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy using their gadgets to close the door of a jewelry store, but SpongeBob accidentally breaks the window. Three background paintings of this scene have been found. Interestingly, the jewelry store would later be used in the season 10 episode "Whirlybrains" as well as the video game ''SpongeBob SquarePants: Employee of the Month''.

===Something Smells===
 +
According to the Season 2 DVD commentary, after SpongeBob and Patrick hugged Squidward and ran away at the end of the episode, Squidward was supposed to say "Ugly and smelly, two for one", but this was cut due to the whole screen fading to black at the end, so the dialog wasn't needed.
 +
===Dying for Pie===

The storyboard has a scene where SpongeBob introduces Squidward to a random office worker, and SpongeBob plugging up Squidward's heart during the surgery gag.

In the end credits of this episode, Tom Kenny is credited for providing the voice of Mrs. Puff's dad, despite this character making no appearance in the episode (or in the series as a whole). No details are known as to the contents of the scene featuring this character, other than the fact that the scene was cut after Kenny's dialogue had already been recorded.

Supposedly in early airings of this episode, the bus had jellyfishers inside it. This remains unconfirmed.

According to the season 2 DVD commentary, there was originally a scene featuring Sandy's bed hanging from the ceiling of the Treedome, with much more saliva/drool than was seen in the final episode. Additionally, the DVD commentary also states that the original title for this episode was "Survival of the Morons."

Patrick was originally supposed to say SpongeBob's drawing was "Lower middle class," but that line was changed to "Lacks basic construction," possibly for it being a very out of character thing for Patrick to say.

===The Secret Box===
 +
Many people online claim to have seen a picture of SpongeBob with a lampshade over his head or a picture of SpongeBob in his underwear when Patrick reveals the embarrassing photo of SpongeBob during the original airing and the first re-runs.
 +
 
 +
Interestingly, the photo in the box was actually revealed in a SpongeBob book released sometime after the episode, and it seems to match the second description from above.<ref>[http://solmaster11.deviantart.com/art/SpongeBob-s-Embarrasing-Photo-256259225 A DeviantArt post to the SpongeBob picture.]</ref>
 +
 
 +
However, Wiki user Sloucher112 claims to remember a photo matching the first description: "It showed SpongeBob passed-out drunk on a table wearing a Christmas sweater and a lampshade on his head surrounded by cartons of eggnog. You could also see Sandy and Squidward giggling in the background."

According to the Season 2 DVD commentary for this episode, there was originally a scene where SpongeBob says to Patrick "Go *dolphin noise* yourself" (Go f**k yourself) to which Patrick replies "*dolphin noise* you too!" (F**k you too!). It was cut for being inappropriate for children, despite the rest of the episode is full of dialogue similar to this. It was possible this was because it was upfront profanity instead of the random nonsensical use of the dolphin noise in the episode (as it might lead on to believe that it sounded too much like the F word).
  
Interestingly, the photo in the box was actually revealed in a Spongebob book released sometime after the episode, and it seems to match the second description from above. You can see a screenshot of that photo here[http://solmaster11.deviantart.com/art/SpongeBob-s-Embarrasing-Photo-256259225]
+
===Procrastination===
 +
There are three deleted scenes in this episode. These scenes aired in the US until 2005 when they were cut from all other airings afterward. The first scene shows SpongeBob looking out the window and seeing all his friends outside. He sees Patrick rubbing sunscreen on Sandy. The next scene right after that is SpongeBob imagining a live-action car crash. The last scene was him doing calisthenics. These scenes are on the season 2 DVD, the Christmas DVD, and on YouTube, they are also still on Canadian television airings.
  
== Graveyard Shift ==
+
It's still unknown why these scenes were removed in US airings. Some say they were cut for time reasons while others say they were due to their content.  
In the special features of the Sponge Buddies DVD you can find a storyboard of the episode which features a deleted scene. In the scene it shows Spongebob deliver mail to "Floorboard Larry". Also, Floorboard Larry was originally the one flickering the lights, not Nosferatu.
 
  
== Sailor Mouth ==
+
Starting from October of 2019, Nickelodeon started airing reruns of the episode which include the deleted scenes. on the Nicktoons channel. These versions of the scenes were also upscaled to HD to match the rest of the episode.
According to the Season 2 DVD commentary for this episode, there was originally a scene where Spongebob says to Patrick "Go *dolphin noise* yourself" (Go fuck yourself) to which Patrick replies "*dolphin noise* you too!" (Fuck you too!). It was cut for being inappropriate for children, despite the rest of the episode being full of dialogue similar to this.

===The Great Snail Race===

There was originally a scene that showed Sandy getting arrested for kicking SpongeBob's bottom. This scene was cut possibly to save time.
  
== The Bully ==
+
Also noteworthy is that this episode, along with "Mid-Life Crustacean" are banned in Canada, possibly because of animal abuse in the first segment (SpongeBob's abuse to Gary) and how the second segment makes fun of old people.  
Allegedly in the original airing of this episode, there was a scene of Spongebob and Patrick playing leapfrog while Flatts is beating him up. It was cut for unknown reasons, though most likely to save time.

===Just One Bite===
During an interview Sam Henderson stated that there was once a scene involving residents of Bikini Bottom destroying furniture inside Spongebob's head, this was cut for unknown reasons.
+
There was a cut scene near the end of this episode. During the scene, Squidward is attempting to break into the Krusty Krab, and as he walks into the building, he sets off their "security system" (a bucket of gasoline and a lit match) causing a massive explosion and leaving him charred black, and doing it again when he walks into the kitchen. Some claim that the sequence was cut sometime during 2002 while others claim that it was cut after its first airing for unknown reasons. The version that is currently shown on TV and on home media releases replaced the scenes with a slide/zoom cut to Squidward in the kitchen without any burns. However, there is another edited version that retained the first but not the second gas explosion.
  
== One Krab's Trash ==
+
It is commonly assumed that the cut was made because of 9/11. However, this is false as the episode aired a month after the attacks yet the sequence was still included. Vincent Waller later confirmed the scene was changed because Nickelodeon doesn't tolerate stunts involving igniting gas. This scene is still intact in Canadian airings of this episode and on the VideoNow version. The scene can easily be found on YouTube.  
During one point in the original airing of this episode, Spongebob said "you'll never guess what I found in my pants!" Pants was later changed to "sock" in re-runs because it sounded like Spongebob was referring to his groin.

In the storyboard for this episode, Spongebob says "I dedicate this crash to my best friend, Squidward" this was changed in the final version most likely because it implied that Squidward had died somehow.

The dedication card to Pat Morita (who voiced Master Udon in the episode) at the end was also removed after the Best Day Ever marathon, most likely because of the sudden appearance of Pat Morita's face. The dedication card scene, however, is still seen on YTV, Nickelodeon Asia, DVD, older episode recordings and on YouTube.

The series depicts the chronicles of its title character, a child-like sponge living in the fictional city of Bikini Bottom. The series was a massive success and continues to air new episodes to this day, and has generated over 8 billion dollars in revenue for Nickelodeon. However, there have been quite a few scenes or bits of content that have been deleted or edited from episodes.

Deleted Scenes

Pizza Delivery

There were two background paintings created for the Krusty Krab's open and closed signs. There was also a shot with the Krusty Krab clock.

Jellyfishing

An upshot of Squidward's house was made but never used in the episode.

Plankton!

According to the Season 1 DVD commentary, there was originally a scene in this episode that depicted Squidward naked but was cut for obvious reasons (even though Squidward is seen naked in other episodes).

Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy

There was a background painting of a cherry pie made, but not used.

Karate Choppers

According to the season 1 DVD commentary, this episode originally had a scene that showed Sandy karate-chopping a fish in the groin. This scene was cut for being deemed inappropriate.

It is also noteworthy that this episode, along with the episode "SB-129" were removed from rotation sometime in the early 2000s for unknown reasons, though they have since returned.

Sleepy Time

A cel using a background of Pearl's room was found on eBay, suggesting there was once a scene in Pearl's room.

Suds

A cel of Dr. Patrick with a briefcase not seen in the final cut was found on eBay. There was also a painted closeup of one of SpongeBob's plugged holes but is not used in the episode. It can be seen on a set of trading cards from 2003.

Arrgh!

Right after SpongeBob says "Hey! Mr. Krabs is getting all sweaty again!", There was a deleted scene which shows a vision of Mr. Krabs sitting atop of & sniffing a pile of treasure. Sherm Cohen, a writer/storyboard supervisor, posted a storyboard of the deleted scene on his DeviantArt account, proving that it indeed exists.[1]

Scaredy Pants

There was a closeup painting of SpongeBob with his brain exposed created, but it wasn't used in the episode.

I Was a Teenage Gary

This episode was notorious for scaring children because of the scene that shows SpongeBob's seemingly painful and grotesque transformation into a snail. For years, there were rumors that in the original airing, there was an extra scene that depicted Squidward's transformation as well, but was cut in re-run's due to being too scary to children.

A common piece of "evidence" for this supposed deleted scene is that there is an odd transition placed when Squidward gets hit with the needle, that immediately cuts to him being a snail. Some say that this is a remnant of the edit, though others disregard this as just poor transition placement. Some say that the episode still airs in its original version in Poland, but this was later proven to be false as well. Some even claimed to have footage of the missing scene.

Debunking

The Polish airing of this episode was found on a website which hosts Polish dubs of children shows and movies, and it does not contain the scene in question. It was also determined that any footage of the episode that claims to contain the scene is very likely to be faked.

Then on June 12th, 2016, A YouTube user known as 90sGiveMeGoosebumps uploaded a video containing proof that this scene is fake. He insists that this is from the original airing and he also claims to have more SpongeBob Season One premieres on VHS tapes.

90sGiveMeGoosebumps has also dumped the whole premiere of Scaredy Pants /I Was A Teenage Gary onto multiple file sharing sites, permanently debunking the theory about the scene.[2][3]

Texas

In the scene when SpongeBob doesn't want Sandy to leave before following her to the bus, there were several frames of anticipation cut. Cels and sketches have appeared on eBay. Twitter user LarryInc64 attempted to recreate the scene using the material found.


Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy II

Storyboard artist Jay Lender shared storyboards of several deleted scenes from Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy II.[4]

The first deleted scene shows SpongeBob's Krabby Patty statues of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy getting eating by the judges. According to Jay, Stephen Hillenburg told him that the Krabby Patty statues were a funny enough visual and to "not put a gag on a gag." The host was also an animated background character design instead of the realistic fish head. A cel on eBay of the original host was found, possibly implying this scene was fully animated before being replaced. A painting of the original Krabby Patty statues was also found, further backing up this possibility.[5]

A second deleted scene involved SpongeBob, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy looking at a dam and SpongeBob pulling out the plug, causing a flood. No production material of this scene has been found, so it may have not been animated.

A third deleted scene the had the three stopping a bank robber. Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy try to stop the robber with a water ball, but accidentally hit SpongeBob, causing him to absorb the water and crush them. Background of the Bikini Bottom First Nautical Bank was found, meaning this scene could've been animated.

A fourth deleted scene had Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy using their gadgets to close the door of a jewelry store, but SpongeBob accidentally breaks the window. Three background paintings of this scene have been found. Interestingly, the jewelry store would later be used in the season 10 episode "Whirlybrains" as well as the video game SpongeBob SquarePants: Employee of the Month.

Two other backgrounds exists, one clearly meant for the scene where Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy fight their cardboard cutout enemies, and an upshot of a tower.

Something Smells

According to the Season 2 DVD commentary, after SpongeBob and Patrick hugged Squidward and ran away at the end of the episode, Squidward was supposed to say "Ugly and smelly, two for one", but this was cut due to the whole screen fading to black at the end, so the dialog wasn't needed.

Dying for Pie

The storyboard has a scene where SpongeBob introduces Squidward to a random office worker, and SpongeBob plugging up Squidward's heart during the surgery gag.

Prehibernation Week

According to the Season 2 DVD commentary, during the scene when Sandy is raking leaves, she originally was meant to make the symbol for "Girl Power," but it was changed to "Texas." Sandy also originally did a whole dance routine when she was stepping on the leaves, but it was cut due to time constraints.

This episode also had an alternate ending that was replaced for unknown reasons; instead of SpongeBob laughing when he realized Sandy went into hibernation, he said: "Why I oughta!".

Doing Time

In the end credits of this episode, Tom Kenny is credited for providing the voice of Mrs. Puff's dad, despite this character making no appearance in the episode (or in the series as a whole). No details are known as to the contents of the scene featuring this character, other than the fact that the scene was cut after Kenny's dialogue had already been recorded.

The Snowball Effect

Former supervising director Adam Paloian tweeted a background and storyboard panel of a deleted scene depicting a snowman torture room in Squidward's fortress.[6] It was likely cut for being too graphic.

Christmas Who?

This episode has three deleted scenes:

  • Originally Squidward (as Santa) gave the first girl an antique instead of a wrench.
  • Mr. Krabs originally said, "And don't forget about me Pony!" while waiting for Santa.
  • After Santa (Squidward) gave the first girl her present, SpongeBob said: "I told ya he was real!".

All of these scenes were removed for reasons that so far remains unknown.

Survival of the Idiots

According to the season 2 DVD commentary, there was originally a scene featuring Sandy's bed hanging from the ceiling of the Treedome, with much more saliva/drool than was seen in the final episode. Additionally, the DVD commentary also states that the original title for this episode was "Survival of the Morons."

Welcome to the Chum Bucket

According to the Season 2 DVD commentary, there was originally a scene that showed Plankton taking out SpongeBob's brain before putting it in the robot.

Jellyfish Hunter

The infamous "MORE!" scene was meant to have more grotesque closeups of Mr. Krabs, but was cut. It is unknown if these made it past the storyboard phase.

Frankendoodle

Patrick was originally supposed to say SpongeBob's drawing was "Lower middle class," but that line was changed to "Lacks basic construction," possibly for it being a very out of character thing for Patrick to say.

The Secret Box

Many people online claim to have seen a picture of SpongeBob with a lampshade over his head or a picture of SpongeBob in his underwear when Patrick reveals the embarrassing photo of SpongeBob during the original airing and the first re-runs.

Interestingly, the photo in the box was actually revealed in a SpongeBob book released sometime after the episode, and it seems to match the second description from above.[7]

However, Wiki user Sloucher112 claims to remember a photo matching the first description: "It showed SpongeBob passed-out drunk on a table wearing a Christmas sweater and a lampshade on his head surrounded by cartons of eggnog. You could also see Sandy and Squidward giggling in the background."

Since there are currently no footage of the picture, it is unknown if either came is true.

Graveyard Shift

In the special features of the Sponge Buddies DVD, you can find a storyboard of the episode which features a deleted scene. In the scene, it shows SpongeBob deliver mail to "Floorboard Harry." Also, Floorboard Harry was originally the one flickering the lights, not Nosferatu.[8]

Sailor Mouth

According to the Season 2 DVD commentary for this episode, there was originally a scene where SpongeBob says to Patrick "Go *dolphin noise* yourself" (Go f**k yourself) to which Patrick replies "*dolphin noise* you too!" (F**k you too!). It was cut for being inappropriate for children, despite the rest of the episode is full of dialogue similar to this. It was possible this was because it was upfront profanity instead of the random nonsensical use of the dolphin noise in the episode (as it might lead on to believe that it sounded too much like the F word).

Procrastination

There are three deleted scenes in this episode. These scenes aired in the US until 2005 when they were cut from all other airings afterward. The first scene shows SpongeBob looking out the window and seeing all his friends outside. He sees Patrick rubbing sunscreen on Sandy. The next scene right after that is SpongeBob imagining a live-action car crash. The last scene was him doing calisthenics. These scenes are on the season 2 DVD, the Christmas DVD, and on YouTube, they are also still on Canadian television airings.

It's still unknown why these scenes were removed in US airings. Some say they were cut for time reasons while others say they were due to their content.

Starting from October of 2019, Nickelodeon started airing reruns of the episode which include the deleted scenes. on the Nicktoons channel. These versions of the scenes were also upscaled to HD to match the rest of the episode.

The Great Snail Race

There was originally a scene that showed Sandy getting arrested for kicking SpongeBob's bottom. This scene was cut possibly to save time.

Also noteworthy is that this episode, along with "Mid-Life Crustacean" are banned in Canada, possibly because of animal abuse in the first segment (SpongeBob's abuse to Gary) and how the second segment makes fun of old people.

Just One Bite

There was a cut scene near the end of this episode. During the scene, Squidward is attempting to break into the Krusty Krab, and as he walks into the building, he sets off their "security system" (a bucket of gasoline and a lit match) causing a massive explosion and leaving him charred black, and doing it again when he walks into the kitchen. Some claim that the sequence was cut sometime during 2002 while others claim that it was cut after its first airing for unknown reasons. The version that is currently shown on TV and on home media releases replaced the scenes with a slide/zoom cut to Squidward in the kitchen without any burns. However, there is another edited version that retained the first but not the second gas explosion.

It is commonly assumed that the cut was made because of 9/11. However, this is false as the episode aired a month after the attacks yet the sequence was still included. Vincent Waller later confirmed the scene was changed because Nickelodeon doesn't tolerate stunts involving igniting gas. This scene is still intact in Canadian airings of this episode and on the VideoNow version. The scene can easily be found on YouTube.

Karate Island

The dedication card to Pat Morita (who voiced Master Udon in the episode) at the end was also removed after the Best Day Ever marathon, most likely because of the sudden appearance of Pat Morita's face. The dedication card scene, however, is still seen on YTV, Nickelodeon Asia, DVD, older episode recordings and on YouTube.
