The SpongeBob SquarePants Theme Song is, as its title suggests, the song that opens every episode of SpongeBob SquarePants and also appears in all of the movies, as well as being used as the closing number for SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical.

Special versions of the theme song, with slightly altered lyrics, were featured in the episodes "Christmas Who?", "What Ever Happened to SpongeBob?", and "It's a SpongeBob Christmas!" In addition, "Truth or Square" and "The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom" opened with stop-motion versions of the opening. "Truth or Square" also featured parody versions of the song, focusing on Patrick, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs. SpongeBob himself also briefly sings the song in the episodes "Old Man Patrick" and "Handemonium", doing so in the latter instance to recruit Hans' help in the current situation.
