The SpongeBob SquarePants Theme Song is, as its title suggests, the song that opens every episode of SpongeBob SquarePants.

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" itself also featured parody versions of the song itself, focusing on Patrick, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs.

The regular opening sequence was re-animated in HD widescreen in 2016, with "Lame and Fortune" being the first episode to use the new version.
