We May Have SpongeBob's Origin Story All Wrong

SpongeBob SquarePants had a previous name of SpongeBoy, with his original Nickelodeon show being called SpongeBoy Ahoy. Why did it go from SpongeBoy to SpongeBob? A well-known story reveals that it's because a mop was named SpongeBoy. Turns out, that could be wrong. Stephen Hillenburg had intended SpongeBoy Ahoy to be the final title of his Nicktoon, until someone else using the name SpongeBoy was discovered. In a recent video from YouTube creator Kid Leaves Stoop, we discover the truth behind SpongeBob SquarePants' origins, and what we may have had wrong for so many years.
