Broadcast history

Alfa TV

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.[4] 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.

Alpha Kids

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.[5]

Alpha TV

The show started airing on 2002-10, alongside Rugrats and The Wild Thornberrys.[6]

Channel 9

SpongeBob SquarePants - 2007 television advertisement (Greek)
The first season first aired in late 2003, the second season in 2004, and the third one premiered in the same year.

In 2007-09, the show would air everyday on 9:30am and 4:00pm (4:30pm on weekends). It was removed from the channel's schedule in 2007-12.

Controversy

During airings of SpongeBob SquarePants on Channel 9 in November 2007, the National Council for Radio and Television started investigations regarding a claim made by one of its members, in which he says that "the show contains violent scenes for children."[7]
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 occur, 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.

STAR Channel

The channel would initially secure the rights to the first six seasons of the show.[3] The new episodes of Season 4 started broadcasting in 2007-01-06.[8] Two months after the show was removed from Channel 9, Star started also airing older episodes. The made-for-television movie, "Atlantis SquarePantis", first aired on the channel in 2008-12. Season 7 premiered on 2011-09-24, after a press release about it 3 days before[9], 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 after its final airing 2013-07-14[10] in favor of Baby Looney Tunes, selected episodes from seasons 6, 7 and 8 would air on weekends at 10am.

Season 5 first aired on 2012-01-27. Season 6 first aired on 2012-10-22.[11][12]
