===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.
+
'''Status: <span style="color:grey;">Non-Existence Confirmed'''
  
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.

This scene remained unconfirmed, and no video evidence exists to prove it even existed. However, on May 30, 2018, Vincent Waller confirmed that no such scene exists, as he storyboarded that scene. <ref>[https://twitter.com/VincentWaller72/status/1001913973850095616 Vincent Waller's Twitter post on the Hooky scene.]</ref>

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.
 
 
===Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy II===
 
The Krabby Patty statues of Mermaid and Barnacle Boy at first used a more grotesque painting. There were also three backgrounds of a scene where a jewelry store gets robbed, as well the First Nautical Bank and a low shot of a building. 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''.

===Just One Bite===
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.

There was a cut scene near the end of this episode. During the scene, Squidward is attempting to break into the Krusty Krab. 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 the gas. This scene is still intact in Canadian, Korean and Bulgarian airings of this episode and on the VideoNow version. The scene can easily be found on YouTube.

+
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.

===Life of Crime===
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.

The scene has since been debunked as fake by Vincent Waller on Twitter.<ref> [https://twitter.com/VincentWaller72/status/1028016793288290304]</ref>
+
In the storyboards of this episode, the scene of SpongeBob and Patrick imagining all the fun they'll have with the balloon was replaced with them playing a game with it involving numerous sharp objects. This was likely changed due to the juxtaposition of the balloon popping following the former seeming funnier to the writers.

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.] Retrieved 23 Aug '19</ref>
*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.
+
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. Numerous pieces of production art of this scene have popped up on eBay and other various websites, implying this scene may have been fully animated before getting cut.<ref>[https://twitter.com/JayLender1/status/1164207653720956928 Jay Lender's Twitter post showing the patty statue scene.] Retrieved 23 Aug '19</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 also originally did a whole dance routine when she was stepping on the leaves, but it was cut due to time constraints.  
  
However, Wiki user Sloucher112 remembers 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."

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 callisthenics. These scenes are on the season 2 DVD, the Christmas DVD, and on YouTube; they are also still on Canadian television airings.  
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 to much like the F word).

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 storyboard for this episode, SpongeBob says "I dedicate this crash to my old pal, Squidward.". This was changed in the final version, most likely because it implied that Squidward had died somehow.

In the assets for the video game ''SpongeBob SquarePants: SuperSponge'', an alternate title card can be found for this episode that features yellow outlined red text and a different background. This is the only place this title card can be found, as it was never broadcast on television or released on home media.
There was a cut scene near the end of this episode. During the scene, Squidward is attempting to break into the Krusty Krab, and he walks into the building he sets off their "security system" (a bucket of gasoline and a lit match) causing a massive explosion 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 it's first airing for unknown reasons. The version that is currently shown on TV and on home media releases replaced the scenes with an awkward 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. This scene is still intact in Canadian airings of this episode and on the VideoNow version. The scene can easily be found on YouTube.

Screenshot of the deleted scene from "Just One Bite".

Status: Partially Lost

SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series that premiered on May 1st, 1999, on Nickelodeon. 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

Arrgh!

Status: Found

Right after SpongeBob says, "Hey! Mr. Krabs is getting all sweaty again!", There was a deleted scene that 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]

Artist Unknown

Status: Found

As seen in early production material, the infamous Bold and Brash painting was supposed to be more fish-like in terms of its design than what was seen in the final episode.

Christmas Who?

Status: Found

This episode has three deleted scenes:

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

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

Animatic of the episode featuring all deleted scenes.

Doing Time

Status: Lost

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.

Dying for Pie

Status: Found

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

Feral Friends

Status: Found

In the online rough storyboard, there was a scene with Plankton turning into actual plankton before getting squished. When asked why the scene was cut, Vincent Waller stated it was for time.

Frankendoodle

Status: Lost

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

Graveyard Shift

Status: Found

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.[2]

Help Wanted

Status: Partially Found

The original 1997 version had a different opening and credits; this cut can be found online and on the Best of Nicktoons 1998 VHS. Additionally, the 2007 book Not Just Cartoons! Nicktoons! contains a screenshot of a deleted storyboard where Gary eats some cactus.

The original audio where the titular character is called "SpongeBoy" is currently lost, and only a few storyboard panels are currently available.

I Was a Teenage Gary

Status: Non-Existence Confirmed

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 rumours that in the original airing, there was an extra scene that depicted Squidward's transformation as well but was cut in re-runs 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, which 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 also say that the episode still airs in its original version in Poland, but this was later proven to be false, as The Polish airing of this episode was found on a website that hosts Polish dubs of children shows and movies. This website did not include the scene in question. Some even claimed to have footage of the missing scene.

Debunking

On June 12th, 2016, YouTuber 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 Squarepants 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.

As a further piece of evidence, current showrunner Vincent Waller confirmed that the so-called deleted scene was never drawn in the storyboard of this episode.[3]

Jellyfishing

Status: Found

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

Jellyfish Hunter

Status: Found

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.

Just One Bite

Status: Found

There was a cut scene near the end of this episode. During the scene, Squidward is attempting to break into the Krusty Krab. 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 the gas. This scene is still intact in Canadian, Korean and Bulgarian airings of this episode and on the VideoNow version. The scene can easily be found on YouTube.

Deleted scene from "Just One Bite."

Karate Choppers

Status: Lost

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," was removed from rotation sometime in the early 2000s for unknown reasons, though they have since returned.

Karate Island

Status: Found

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.

Life of Crime

Status: Found

In the storyboards of this episode, the scene of SpongeBob and Patrick imagining all the fun they'll have with the balloon was replaced with them playing a game with it involving numerous sharp objects. This was likely changed due to the juxtaposition of the balloon popping following the former seeming funnier to the writers.

Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy

Status: Found

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

Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy II

Status: Partially Found

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. Numerous pieces of production art of this scene have popped up on eBay and other various websites, implying this scene may have been fully animated before getting cut.[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 not have been animated.

A third deleted scene 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 exist, one clearly meant for the scene where Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy fight their cardboard cutout enemies and an upshot of a tower.

Pizza Delivery

Status:Found

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.

Plankton!

Status:Lost

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).

Prehibernation Week

Status:Lost

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!".

Procrastination

Status:Found

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 callisthenics. 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.

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).

Additionally, a version of the episode is purported to exist where numerous characters actually swear, though the only evidence of such is an anecdote given by Tom Kenny at a convention panel.

In the assets for the video game SpongeBob SquarePants: SuperSponge, an alternate title card can be found for this episode that features yellow outlined red text and a different background. This is the only place this title card can be found, as it was never broadcast on television or released on home media.

Additionally, early broadcasts and home media releases of the episode credited Edgar Larrazábal as the animation director. The credit was altered to attribute animation direction to Tom Yasumi in later releases.

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.

The Great Snail Race

Status: Lost

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

The Secret Box

Status: Existence Unconfirmed

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.[6]

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 is currently no footage of the picture, it is unknown if either claim is true.

The Snowball Effect

Status: Found

Former supervising director Adam Paloian tweeted a background and storyboard panel of a deleted scene depicting a snowman torture room in Squidward's fortress.[7] It was likely cut for being too graphic.

To Love a Patty

Status: Lost

Originally, SpongeBob was going to be near-naked in bed with patty, which was cut due to being inappropriate for children. Also, in the storyboards, SpongeBob was seen wearing his outfit and wig from "The Chaperone."

Welcome to the Chum Bucket

Status: Lost

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.
