باب اسفنجی is one of several Persian dubs of SpongeBob SquarePants. It has previously aired on IRIB Pooya and MYTV.

Release history

باب اسفنجی was first released on DVD by Parsian Home Video under the distributor TDH Home Entertainment, beginning in 2008. Dozens of DVDs have been released since. Each one has multiple random or themed episodes. As a result, some episodes have been dubbed twice, or in some cases, had their music and effects tracks replaced on different DVDs. Glory Entertainment and Asia Media Cinema Artistic Cultural Company have also released DVDs containing this dub in 2012-2013.

Censorship

Original vs. censored

The dub has faced strict censorship with nearly every episode. Namely, scenes containing characters in bikini outfits are edited or cut. This practice has gained relative infamy due to the addition of proper clothing on these characters in some cases.

Broadcast history

IRIB Pooya

باب اسفنجی began broadcast on IRIB Pooya sometime in the early 2010s and no longer airs. They seemingly aired the same masters from the Parsian Home Video DVDs, however, with a few changes. The narration of the title card has a slight reverb added, and dubbing information added in the original has been edited out. Some scenes were cut in various episodes as well.

uToon

uToon has been known to broadcast music videos based around shortened versions of episodes. These music videos were produced by Parsian Home Video and distributed on DVD.
