Please ignore all the ignorant responses here about Adult Swim and the characters being gay. They are not even close to true.
SpongeBob was created AS a kids show for Nickelodeon by Stephen Hillenburg when Rocko's modern Life ended it's run. He created that, too. Hillenburg was a marine biologist so that's why it''s set under the sea. There is no reason to think he was making a comment about sexuality any more than he was with Rocko's. It was not supposed to be an inappropriate adult show. Sadly, the people here are reading things into it that aren't real.
