Hey SpongeBob refers to a scene from a 2002 episode of SpongeBob SquarePants where Sandy walks into SpongeBob's house and says "hey SpongeBob" while giving Patrick a piggyback as he laughs hysterically. Patrick then screams with laughter. The short scene became the subject of edits in late 2021 as people replaced Patrick's scream with other sound effects and voices for comedic effect, often changing the color of his body as well.


On November 12th, 2002, season three, episode 56b of SpongeBob SquarePants, titled "I Had an Accident,"[1] aired in North America. In the episode, Sandy walks into SpongeBob's house with Patrick riding on her back. He's laughing hysterically the whole time. Sandy enters and says, "hey SpongeBob," and Patrick's laughter increases to a scream (shown below).

On an unknown date, YouTuber Hurricoaster posted a now-deleted YouTube Poop featuring edited SpongeBob footage, including an edit of the scene from "I Had an Accident" where Patrick is given a distorted, aggressive scream and his body flashes colorfully after Sandy says "hey SpongeBob." The video was reuploaded on February 23rd, 2020 by YOUTUBEPOOP Reloaded, gaining over 30,000 views in nine months (shown below).


On April 6th, 2020, YouTuber[2] Lindox posted an isolated clip of Patrick screaming and changing color from the Hurricoaster video, gaining over 1.4 million views in seven months. Many of these came later in the year around November as the video suddenly started to get recommended by the YouTube algorithm. On November 19th, YouTuber Arcade posted an edit where Patrick's scream is replaced with the item wheel sound from Mario Kart on the Super Nintendo and he flashes new colors, gaining over 91,000 views in three days (shown below).

On the same day, YouTuber Hardcoded posted one editing in a Deltarune: Chapter 2 sound effect, gaining over 103,000 views in three days (shown below, left).
