About

SpongeBob "Behind Closed Doors" Lost Media refers to NSFW pornographic drawings of SpongeBob SquarePants characters done by the show's storyboard artists that were discovered by a lost media researcher in July 2023. Shortly after appearing online, the images went viral on social media, becoming a prevalent subject of discourse and memes.

Origin

On September 21st, 2012, comic art magazine Hogan's Alley published an interview with people who worked on the animated series SpongeBob SquarePants titled "The Oral History of SpongeBob SquarePants."[1] In the interview, the show's former writer and storyboard director Kent Osborne describes Behind Closed Doors, a book of crude and obscene drawings of SpongeBob SquarePants characters drawn by storyboard artists working on the show around 2001. The drawings were done on Post-It notes and placed on the back of the doors, so if the door was open no one would see them (extract shown below).


Osborne: At the end of the season, all the storyboard artists would do these hilarious, crude drawings of SpongeBob on Post-It notes just to make everyone else laugh. And these drawings would go on the back of the door, because if the door was open no one would see them. Sam Henderson took all of these Post-Its and made them into a book and gave a copy to everybody. The name of the book was Behind Closed Doors. He didn't want to put everyone's names in case it fell into the wrong hands, so he made anagrams of everyone's name and put them on the back of the book. They were hilarious. The anagram for me was Tek Bonerson. To this day, when I see Tom Kenny, he lights up and says, "Tek!"

On July 18th, 2023, YouTuber[2] LSuperSonicQ uploaded a video about the book, revealing that he was in correspondence with a person who had a copy of it. In the video, LSuperSonicQ talked about the book and showcased the book's cover and six of the images found in it, most of which depicted SpongeBob SquarePants characters in a sexual manner or engaged in some sort of sexual activity. The video (shown below) gained over 227,000 views in 16 hours.



Additionally, LSuperSonicQ uploaded scans of the drawings to Internet Archive[3] (censored versions shown below).
