Deleted SpongeBob SquarePants Scene Resurfaces

A deleted scene from SpongeBob SquarePants has resurfaced on the internet.

A deleted scene from the SpongeBob SquarePants episode "Just One Bite" has recently resurfaced on the internet! In the episode, Squidward develops an obsession with Krabby Patties after trying one for the first time.

"Just One Bite" originally aired on Nickelodeon USA on  October 5, 2001 as part of a Totally Twisted Telly event, however, a scene had to be removed from subsequent airings due to it's violent nature.

In the original in-tact version of the episode, there is a scene where Squidward triggers and is injured twice by a security system in the Krusty Krab that Mr. Krabs had installed to keep anyone, including Plankton, from entering the building at night. The security system consists of a bucket of gasoline that Squidward mistakes for a bucket of water, which is spilled onto the floor before being lit on fire to cause an explosion.

Soon after its original airing, Nickelodeon cut the scene, with reports of the scene being removed coming as early as January 2, 2002.

Initially, explanations for the removal were thought to be either to respect the victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks, which occurred less than a month before the episode aired, or to prevent children from attempting to use and/or ignite gas.

However, current showrunner Vincent Waller confirmed in a statement on Twitter on June 4, 2018 that the removal of the scene was ultimately due to a Standards and Practices issue and Nickelodeon being against the idea of a gag involving a match and gasoline.

The edited version is still aired today, and is also the version released on home entertainment, including DVDs and, in the mid-noughts, VideoNow.

However, the uncut version of the episode is still available to watch on TV, depending on where you live. The unedited version still airs on Canadian channels, including YTV and Nickelodeon Canada, and is also known to be dubbed in Korean on EBS airings in South Korean.
