This show, along with Rugrats, Clarissa Explains It All, The Journey of Allen Strange, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters, The Angry Beavers, The Adventures of Pete & Pete, and Legends of the Hidden Temple, were the first shows to ever air on the Nickelodeon block, which would replace the K-T.V. one. It would initially air on weekdays, on 7:30 am, 7:55 am, 11:30 am, and 3:30 pm, and on weekends, on 7:30 am and 12:30 am.
A few months before Alpha Digital's shutdown, the first two seasons of the show would air on 7:00 AM and 1:30 PM, and later on 7:30 AM and 1:00 PM.
During airings of the series on Channel 9 in November 2007, a time when the show was massively popular, ESR (The National Council for Radio and Television) started expressing its opinion that the show has controversial scenes with violence and sex and that SpongeBob is transexual, as "he passes most of the time with Patrick".
The reaction of audiences and fans of the show in Greece was rather negative, with people criticizing the fact that ESR was focusing on "mindless" children shows, and not on other "awful" at the time, shows on TV.
Despite the Council taking action in order to ban the cartoon, the exact reason for the cancellation of airings there till this day, are unknown.
This would make a series of events occure, including a sketch based on the controversy, on the early version of Ellinofreneia on SKAI in 2008 (followed by a complaint of an anonymous parent about it on the radio show of the same name), as well as the distribution of leaflets by "Φοιτητές σε Κρίση Ταυτότητας", criticizing accusations against gay people.
The channel would initially secure the rights to the first six seasons of the show. It started broadcasting in late 2007, and the new episodes of Season 4 started broadcasting in 2008-01. The made-for-television movie "Atlantis SquarePantis", first aired on the channel, in 2009-12. Season 7 premiered on 2011-09-24, after a press release about it 3 days before, and the final episodes to premiere were "A Friendly Game" and "Sentimental Sponge", the last episodes to ever be dubbed by Power Music Productions and Audio Visual. Before getting put off the schedule in 2013-07-14 in favor of Baby Looney Tunes, selected episodes from seasons 6, 7 and 8 would air on weekends.
