SpongeBob Squarepants and his friends live in Bikini Bottom an underwater city. Bikini Bottom is like a regular city with a downtown, suburbs, coastal areas, bus system, its own airport, and fair park. Stephen Hillenburg said once that the underwater city Bikini Bottom was loosely based on Seattle. An example of this statement is in the episode "Pre-Hibernation Week". Sandy and SpongeBob were fighting on a tall structure called the Sea Needle, referring to the Space Needle, a tall structure in Seattle. Hillenburg has said that he wants to leave the location of Bikini Bottom to the imagination.
SpongeBob is depicted as being an optimistic, cheerful, enthusiastic yellow sea sponge residing in the undersea city of "Bikini Bottom" alongside an array of anthropomorphic aquatic creatures. He works as a fry cook at the fast food restaurant, the Krusty Krab under the employment of Eugene Krabs, a greedy, miserly crab who shows SpongeBob favor, alongside his ill-tempered, hateful, neighbor Squidward Tentacles. His favorite hobbies include his occupation, jelly-fishing, karate, with Sandy Cheeks, relentless fandom of superheroes Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, and blowing bubbles. He is often seen clowning around with his closest friend Patrick, who lives on the same street as SpongeBob two doors down. However, SpongeBob's low intelligence, unlimited optimistic cheer, and irritating behavior often leads him to perceive the outcome of numerous endeavors and the personalities of those around him as happier and sunnier than they often actually are; for instance, he believes that Squidward enjoys his company in spite of the fact that he clearly loathes him. A recurring gag in several episodes is SpongeBob's extremely poor driving ability and his repeated failures to pass his road test at "Mrs. Puff's Boating School." He lives in an iconic pineapple with his pet snail Gary.
