Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Spongebob Squarepants!

As much as I’d like to continue the whole song, we have some amazing art to share! The long-running American hit cartoon series, Spongebob Squarepants, is popular in many countries across the world, including the giant of Asia, China. A Chinese artist recently created some pretty awesome personified illustrations of Spongebob and his friends. If you’re curious to find out what a yellow sponge, a pink starfish or a green plankton would look like as humans, dive in!

I wouldn’t think any introductions are necessary for this world-famous animation series, but just in case there are people out there who use their TV sets to watch the stock market instead of kiddy cartoons about a crazy sea sponge, Spongebob Squarepants is an animation series set in a fictional world called Bikini Bottom.

The storyline mainly revolves around the lead character, Spongebob Squarepants, his friend Patrick Star the pink starfish, his neighbor Squidward Tentacles the squid, and a handful of other eccentric characters including a money-loving crab, a squirrel that somehow manages to live underwater, and a tiny one-eyed plankton as the antagonist of the series.

The fabulous fan art were drawn by 20-year-old XiaozuoZ, an artist based in Hubei Province, China. As a Spongebob fan, I have to say, I never imagined Mr. Krabs would be such a badass hunk as a human! And that Sandy has to be the sexiest “squirrel” I’ve ever seen. We’re not sure if XiaozuoZ has any plans to create more illustrations of the other side characters of the series, but we certainly hope he does!

What do you think of the series? Tell us which is your favorite character in the comments section below! Also, hop over to XiaozuoZ’s Weibo or blog to feast your eyes on his other stunning illustrations!
