    1. Rusting Gold

      the theory is not true however you look at it cause when they left the sea on one episode where they were teasing sandy cause she cant breathe underwater. they were natural sponge , crab , squid , squirrel , and starfish

    2. gaming whith tofu

      You do have a point but in the new movie they travel to Atlanta and there mutated to

    3. Klara Lacey shay

      Omg I missed this so much... Been at school for 4 months and no electric gadgets allowed and I was in boarding school.

    4. Master Penguin

      I was hoping to point out that spongebobs house would go along with this theory because he lives in a big pineapple 🍍 so with radioactive testing the pineapple would have been huge

    5. pink7ig3rgaming

      How about the amazing world of gumballl theory?

    6. Random:Me

      I mean, wouldn't their perception of time matter?

    7. Jojo Plushy theater

      The map and maybe their time is slow or maybe that was when the radiation was just starting

    8. AyanXAmin

      @BombFury123 Dan povenmire said that they charge money to the unknown company

    9. imbicthboi

      spongebob is a dish sponge. explain that dummy

    10. Manuel Duran

      Do one on how season 2 on invincible will end

    11. alex gaming

      i think alex bale beat you to this one :(

    12. Merengue acnh

      matpat could literally tell me anything at this point and id believe him I mean whats next he'll get me excited about the lore in a food delivery services ads??? oh wait...

    13. lo

      Ok it soungebobs 12 century isn't our 12th century there cave man times is probably when the nuclear testing started....

    14. seeni gzty

      eye. I just wanted to see what you thought. That's all.

    15. Dimitriov Bellefountaine

      Bru when he zoomed out to show the IRL bikini atol ,one of the islands looked just like the island above the city of bikini bottom

    16. Crypto NWO

      Saw this first on Alex Bale’s channel!

    17. Booter Scooch

      I’m very passionate about bikini atoll The people of Bikini Atoll were actually moved to a much smaller island which didn’t have enough food or fish and capabilities to feed all of their people they are given $500 annually by the American government which is NOT ENOUGH FOR BEING FORCEFULLY SHOVED FROM THEIR HOMES AND FORCED TO SUFFER RADIATION POISONING!!!! when the American soldiers arrive to tell them that they were having to leave they welcome them a song and dance and we’re even singing as they dismantled their homes they thought they were doing something good little did they know they would never be able to return to their homes again and would suffer for years to come with famine, sickness, hair loss, vomiting, diarrhea, teeth falling out and all of the other disgusting side effects of radiation it was a true catastrophe

    18. Frog Queen

      Actually, if you look into the geography of Bikini Bottom, it’s really in boating distance to San Francisco, witch would disprove Bikini Bottom being in Bikini Atol.

    19. choppy shakur

      no it shows the bikini bottem millons of years ago but the nucler bombs took place in the 40s

    20. Salvacion Schimment

      I still think the theory is true because marine life would had developed slow than real people so the spongegars time line is different then ares so that's why the theory's is right⚓🚢

    21. Hudson family

      Alex bales video proves you wrong, and it came out before this. Do you..... not no who Alex bale is????? Wow

    22. eioshen boboi

      Throwback time: Just recently watched “Over the Hedge” again today, no clue how many times I’ve seen it now. How fast can hammy move during his caffeine rush?

    23. Sadhika Mekala

      what if after the radiation they started as primitives and evoloved from there.

    24. Tropical Fish

      petition to bring back the old film theory intro

      1. eioshen boboi

        What if the radiation created them as prehistoric versions of them and because there where made using radiation they evolved faster

    25. Bogdan Vasile

      Eddsworld theory when

    26. idk was i supposed to put a clever name

      What if instead of instead of nuclear bombs it maybe was the asteroid that killed dinosaurs? Fish survived that and were maybe mutated. That could maybe explain how they were like cavemen. Are asteroids radioactive active ? Idk what im saying? Notice me senpai... i mean matpat

    27. No

      The best explanation for all things spongebob is Skin Theory.

    28. Obese Monkey

      No one is going to mention the reference to electroboom? LATITY?

    29. Chloe Franklin

      Hiroshima? What was that pronunciation?!? I’ve never heard it pronounced that way. It’s always been He-ro-shi-ma


      Didn't local youtuber alex bale already solve this you should check him out matpat he is a SpongeBob theory expert

    31. Amber Rodriguez

      Alex bale

    32. Mr. Turtle

      I wonder if nature did nukes

    33. MinerForStone

      Another point that wasn't mentioned in the video was that the theory doesn't explain Sandy. She's from Texas; nowhere near Bikini Atoll. She wouldn't have been affected unless she had already built her tree dome, a feat a normal squirrel cannot accomplish

    34. DiddyKongVsLuigi

      5:15 to 5:24 those kind of, “Jokes,” stopped being funny in 2009..... even then they were cancer. 😪🙄🤢

      The circle is complete with a sport theory sense you ruined video games movies food and if you read this comment sports PLEASE complete the circle.

      I don’t know fish lifespan or anything but consider we’re using human years

    44. Bren Hanks

      That thumbnail though

    45. Giwrgos Davola

      what if they were created (evolved) because of time travel

    46. call me mr dog bird

      Mermaid man and barnacle boy are both humans tho


      I am wearing the same pants as when I discovered this account.

    48. Josh K

      Still not debunked if you consider the ancient aliens theory. There is an ancient city where the remains found were radioactive. So still possible IMO.

    49. netra Magar

      Spongbob is lengedery

    50. Xavier Lovato

      What if spongebob is its own universe??

    51. Skep Tical

      HOTTAKE ALERT maybe its just a childrens show with no deep meaning or depth worth breaking down, and every single fan theory is just a basement dwelling schizo trying to make a dumb childrens show into something with a hidden message. Weirdos.

    53. SuN sInGeR

      So what if the caveman times in bukin bottom was the 1950s or 1960s?

    54. SuN sInGeR

      Film theory thats actaully a theory! Good work guys

    55. Alison Kortum

      Theory idea: In Shutter Island, was Teddy actually a patient or was he being lied to?

    56. Round T3mptationS

      Y’all over thinking it’s a cartoon

    57. Math Dantas Tav

      disagree, fishes tend to reach their reproductive age in about a year, and die of old age in about 4 to 6 (depending on the fish of course), that means, that on the 80 or so years that have passed since the 40s, there might have been 80 generations of fishes, to put in comparison, 80 generations of humans (considering a generation to be 30 years) would be 2400 years, so its definitly possible that all those things, including caveman spongebob were happening after the 40s, and the fish society quickly evolved within its generations until the society we see in the series

    58. Golden Rapter

      It would also explain the random explosions when a character falls of a cliff or bike since those would be explosions from the testing

    59. Eric Gilbreath

      Ok but, what if the B.C. Era started when the first nuked was tested, bc the tv show wasn't even out yet so they would have time to evolve as the years went by towards the first episode

    60. Mitchell Tate

      Great video, Matt. However you seem to have overlooked the green goo in the episode Feral Friends that de-evolves fish every one hundred years.

    61. Braidyn Buckner

      I think think bikini bottoms timeline is diver too from ours causing time to seem to move faster like dogs

    62. marpe haider

      I think sardines will be can fish after radiation 😁

    63. Blake Hutton

      Luke skywalker is being controlled by palpating in epersode 8

      1. bcvbb hyui

        just... a few weeks or months after the last nuclear test. Just saying... it's not altogether out the window, Mattpat. Maybe.

    64. Engieboi89 The Real One

      what if perhaps the rate of time in bikini bottom is accelerated or seems to fish to go faster than that of humans so that the centuries gone by in bikini bottom were merely a few years or decades in the real world, because fish are different species and they may not perceive time the same way we do? just a thought

    65. Darthmaulstarwarsfan1977



      Super interesting theory!!!! Funny to see the lore being the one getting in the way for once 😂

    67. DC

      There hasn't been a Mario game theory in a while, But I got a pretty good one. How heavy is Captain Toads back pack? Like he can carry it around but he can't jump with it on?

    68. Bob The Bear

      The intro looks really official.

    69. John Koji

      Actually it goes even farther back because ugh ugh is episode about primal bikini bottom along with XK 142

    70. Melissa Ericks

      grud hud of the mug

    71. something creative

      What if the B.C. episodes and such were actually created after the nuclear things at Bikini Atoll?


      I have a theory that explain why the ppl of bikini bottom are kinda like humans. So the theory is that a moon transformed them in who they are. In one episode idk what episode it was about a green moon who transformed the ppl in bikini bottom in their normal form at the end of episode sandy transformed into her normal form bc of a orange moon.

    73. John H. Anderson

      I want matpat and Alex bale to do a spongebob reference

    74. Mitlis Mitlakis

      make a video on pjmasks.

    75. Nerdy Puppy

      Please do a voice on skin theory

    76. Levi Miller

      For the next Siri do pearls dad

    77. Black D0g

      Okay, but.... what about the fish's lifespans? In 1999 (when the show first came out) it had been 41 years since the last test. from my -admittedly limited- research, a starfish's natural lifespan was... almost all of that, okay. BUT, all the fish in the show seem to age, hit maturity and grow old in around the same stretch of time. So, doesn't that mean it's plausible that the sea life in SB just has drastically altered life cycles due to mutation? It's not like ALL the mutations accounted for in the series would have to be beneficial. Look at the giant, mutant fish in the first movie: they appear onscreen directly beside plenty of fish that are exactly as they are today. The alaskan bullworm, that lure fish that ate the PattyWaggon, that enormous eel that ate the lure fish, some octopi in the gift shop. Actually, just everything in the gift shop that isn't Spongebob and Patrick. Point is, those giant mutants COULD be the mutants from Bikini Atoll that mutated in more detrimental ways than anyone else: their ancestors cast out for mutating into monsters ages ago. Not all the sea life shown in SB is mutated. In fact, non mutants are just a car ride away along with the giants. So, who really knows how long the Bikini Bottom residents have been alive; how long their entire society has been alive? They talk about years, days, weeks, but they might not measure time the same way we do. Could be that the sun going down isn't really the sun at all. It could just be a lighthouse signal or something. I don't know, just not the sun. It's entirely possible that Maybe the Bikini Bottom pre-historic age was just... a few weeks or months after the last nuclear test. Just saying... it's not altogether out the window, Mattpat. Maybe.

    78. Novaflame1

      What about kelp city

    79. serry ciok

      Is Toby from the office the Scranton Strangler? I need this to be answered

    80. Seagull 47

      If you think about it 1200 is around ww2 and the cave men were years to us but centuries to them by the nuke going off makes them become alive and starts there Society

    81. Nyxis Klun

      He didn’t do the “aaaaaaaannnd cut” thing

    82. Oshawott

      11:45 maybe this prehistoric time period is taking place a bit after Bikini Atoll was nuked, so possibly current day spongebob is taking place in like the far, far, FAR future from our current time? But then again David Hasslehoff was alive at the same time as spongebob, so

    83. Soup in a can

      I still dont know what MORTY stands for

    84. Joe Noob Gaming-Monster Legends

      Alex bale

    85. Nathan Davidson

      Hey wasn't sure if you knew this but there was a game I player when I was a kid on the PS2 called,"Spongebob, the battle for bakini bottom". If you look around in the game you will find nuclear bombs scattered across the map. It has nothing to do with the main story line there just "there"

    86. Lenia Carter

      Whoa, Matpat can really, really sing! I'd love to hear him actually sing some stuff! NO autotune, pitch correction, etc.

    87. The Cring

      What year does napoleon dynimite take place in

    88. Kasaen

      Day 2 of asking for a 21 Pilots Film Theory episode

    89. TDM rebel

      What if they just advanced differently to us like seeing as a fishes life span is much shorter a period would be different so stoneage might have been a lot shorter

    90. Nafie Mocanu

      When are u gonna do a film theory about miraculous ladybug

    91. Justfor Youtube


    92. Charming nowhere to hide

      eye. I just wanted to see what you thought. That's all.

    93. קרן אור מינצר

      Blue theory is universe theory

    94. Gamebro

      It’s still so weird that they have fire under the sea🧐🤨

    95. Eyeconics2018 ✨

      I’m new to this channel but a YIAY reference? I’ll stay 😌

    96. Jordan Keep

      but surely the bombs would of dropped then made the prehistoric spongebob we saw their entire timeline but the still would of been alive another thing to check out in the first movie they use water to come back to life so does this include all fish?

      1. Raptor Zeraora

        Nope, prehistoric bikini bottom takes place millions of years ago

      2. Charming nowhere to hide

        Matpat become a teacher you would make learning more interesting

    97. Gabrielle King

      but do we have any reason to think that their 12th century happened at the same time as ours? it would make sense if their timeline began as they became sentient, and happened to evolve in a parallel timeline to humans. as viewers we only know what they know.

      1. Raptor Zeraora

        It doesnt make any sense for their timeline to become sentient

    98. Fierce Bot

      Explain the older version like episode of ugh and others there was no nuclear bombs that time meaning there was another person who did it (founded in a video)

      1. Raptor Zeraora

        Alex bale?

    99. nate half

      Is there any evidence of what year or era it was above water? Maybe there was an excellerated time shift that slowed over time, for example the Treehouse of Horror where Lisa accidentally produces and excellerated society that goes from caveman to future but then doesn't progress further, just a theory...
