Stephen Hillenburg the creator of the show said he was surprised the show has made it as far as it is right now. He said he thought there would only be about 2 or 3 seasons. He resigned as the show's executive producer after the release of the SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, and Paul Tibbitt took over from season 4 on. The quality of episodes started to significantly decline after this, so much so that the show's ratings started falling. Nickelodeon ordered the making of a SpongeBob Movie 2 to try and help this. The show is produced by United Planktons Pictures Inc. and Friends Academy telivision Inc. The show so far is in it's ninth season and was announced to have a tenth one. The show takes place in the Pacific Ocean, in the fictional under water city of Bikini Bottom.
