SpongeBob Bikini Bottom Best Day Ever Shorts

Educational resources & donation included with every purchase. Learn more.

When you’re ready for the best day ever and want a pair of shorts that are fun, supportive, and equally comfortable on land or in the water.

SpongeBob was created by marine biologist Stephen Hillenburg, who used art to teach kids about the marine species and ecosystems around them. With its origin in marine science education, the series has always had a deep-rooted connection to the sea. This connection led Paramount and Nickelodeon to launch SpongeBob SquarePants: Operation Sea Change, a global conservation and sustainability initiative to help protect the home of the very creatures that inspired Bikini Bottom. We created this collection in partnership with Paramount Consumer Products to support the Operation Sea Change initiative as well as advocate for the importance of art in inspiring environmental stewardship.

Advocate Apparel Inspired by the Bikini Bottom Ecosystem

The SpongeBob SquarePants creative team did such an incredible job designing the ecosystem of Bikini Bottom with its distinctive bright colors, iconic flower-shaped clouds, and buoyant mood that our team wanted to embody it when designing the SpongeBob Bikini Bottom collection. Although a fictional world, Bikini Bottom and its citizens are inspired by real underwater critters and places, many of which can be found in the intertidal zone.

Besides being huge fans of the show for its creativity, positivity, and forward-thinking themes, we love SpongeBob SquarePants as an example of how art can support environmental science and conservation. Art can provide an opportunity to instill emotion and humanity into science communication while maintaining its scientific integrity. Art can speak for animals, ecosystems, and communities who may not be able to speak for themselves. Art can transform apathy into enthusiasm, enthusiasm into action, and action into change. And in special cases when an artistic expression becomes widely popular like the animated adventures of a charismatic sponge, it can inspire an entire generation.

Sponge Bob shorts

Did not fit. Returned for a different size which is out of stock until sometime in March

Ordered as a gift and was impressed. Going to order some for me now!

I was a little skeptical at first about the material that these shorts would be made out of. To my surprise upon opening the package, it was soft and smooth, yet felt durable. I was so impressed with the fit feel and comfort that I will be ordering a pair of these for myself. The only reason I’m giving that four stars is because they’re not mine. They haven’t been worn for anything fun yet, and it’s 0° right now. However, I have a pretty good idea that these are going to be a favorite pair of shorts

Best Shorts Ever

These are simply the best! Huge fan all-around. They are fun, super comfortable, and durable -- highly recommend!

Love love love!

I’m so thankful that someone finally understood that women want swim shorts too! And the lining is very comfortable as well. The top fits snug and I sized up for the bottoms and am glad I did. If you’re a guy the sizing might be a tad smaller than what you normally purchase.
