BobSfungjeri Pantallon-Katrori is the Albanian dub of SpongeBob SquarePants. Originally titled SpongeBob SquarePants, the dub first premiered on Top Channel in Albania, airing for seven seasons from July 14, 2007 to May 11, 2013; it ceased re-runs soon after. It was produced by the channel, although it also aired briefly on Bang Bang as SfungjerBob PantallonKatrori, from November 14, 2010 to sometime in 2013.

The dub continued with season 8 on June 13, 2016, as it premiered on Çufo (temporarily with the title of BobSfungjeri Pantallona-katrori), with a new dub that was produced by "AA" Film Company. Season 11 last aired on June 19, 2019, with no word of a future continuation.

History

SpongeBob SquarePants (pronounced as SponxhBob SkuerPents) first premiered on Top Channel on 2007-07-14, and aired on weekends. This was until 2009-02-14 when it was moved to airing every day while they reaired season 1–5. This would be reversed later in the year.

Starting with the premiere of season 7 on 2011-01-16, episodes started airing every Sunday only. Sometime during season 7's initial airing, its timeslot was replaced with DreamWorks Dragons. The show came back on 2011-09-11, where season 6 began reairing. The first premiere again would be on 2011-12-04, when Greasy Buffoons premiered, and the show continued to air episodes again until 2012-02-12. It would come back for the final time on 2012-12-08. On 2013-05-11, season 7 concluded.

On 2013-06-29, episodes started airing biweekly. On 2013-09-29, episodes starting airing triweekly. On 2013-11-10, the show aired for the final time in 7 years and was officially replaced after shows had cycled through the timeslot by The Space Kidettes on 2013-12-29.

The dub was concurrently reairing on Bang Bang, this time titled SfungjerBob PantallonKatrori. It started airing on 2010-11-14, about 3 years after it initially started on Top Channel. After a hiatus, the show came back on 2012-06-19, and season 5 was aired until 2012-07-08. There would be another hiatus until 2012-11-10. The show stopped airing on the channel some time around late 2013.

After a seven year hiatus, the dub returned to Top Channel on 2020-08-02.[1][2][3] It aired daily until 2020-09-06, when it was moved to airing on weekends. From 2021-01-09 until 2021-03-27, it was moved to just airing on Saturdays. On 2021-04-04 the show aired again on a Sunday and the following week it only aired on Saturday before stopping altogether. The next Sunday and the following week the Top Channel dub of Avatar: The Last Airbender aired instead. It is unknown if the remaining episodes of season 7 were dubbed.

Eventually, a renewal of the dub, beginning from season 8 had premiered on Çufo on June 13, 2016. It is currently up to season 11.

Notes

SpongeBob SquarePants - logo (Albanian, Prince Kids).png
  • Two Albanian subtitled versions of the show exist. One of them airs on Comedy Central Extra, and is available to stream on Amazon Prime (only season 1). Another, simply titled "Bob Sfungjeri" airs on Prince Kids.

Original

  • This dub would become infamous in the lost media community entirely due to it being lost for a long time. The Lost Media Wiki would ban most pages on lost dubs from being made for being too excessive and unnecessary (with possible exceptions being given to English dubs), and most of the blame was pinned on the Albanian SpongeBob page for starting the trend.
  • The theme song was only localized in the Bang Bang version, because some changes were made to the dub.
  • The Top Channel version didn't have the pirate part and the theme song was in English.
  • Nickelodeon and United Plankton Pictures, Inc. were cut at the end of the credits of Top Channel airings.
  • SpongeBob's laugh and other similar sounds aren't consistent. Sometimes they're performed by Albanian actors, sometimes they're left in English.
  • In the first three seasons, songs would either get cut or be subtitled. Starting with season 4, songs like "Feeling of Greed" from "Selling Out" or the songs from "Dunces and Dragons" are dubbed, although very poorly adapted and sang. Starting with "Together" from season 5, songs would be either dubbed by a separate actor or cut.
  • The dub has extreme cast inconsistency.
  • There are several translation mistakes. They are caused either by lack of context, as the translation is only based off the script and not the video, or due to being translated literally. However the translation is overall more correct and consistent than in the revival dub.

Cuts

Various scenes of a few seconds were cut from several episodes for unknown reasons. For example:

  • In "Pickles", the scene with customers complaining was removed.
  • In "Sandy, SpongeBob and the Worm" the scene when Patrick says "We should take Bikini Bottom and push it somewhere else" is also removed.
  • In the episode "The Algae's Always Greener", the scene where Plankton says "What it's just an ordinary Krabby--OH MY GOODNESS! SQUIDWARD!" is removed as well.

Missing episodes

  • In the 2020-2021 airing, episode S02E18a ("Sailor Mouth") was replaced with a reair of S02E01b ("Squid's Day Off"). The episode was likely not dubbed due to its theme.
  • Episodes S06E20, S06E21 didn't air either. It is unknown if these episodes were dubbed.
    • The same happened with episodes S07E14-S07E16 and S07E20-S07E26. Before those could air, the show was replaced with Avatar. However, the 2013 schedules suggest those episodes may have been dubbed.

Revival

  • The title cards are localized, but the text is usually subtitled, or left alone if it is not as significant. Rarely, other texts will be localized.
  • The end credits for every season 8 episode are the same as the ones used for the first episode of that season.
    • As the credits got cut out early in season 8, after United Plankton Pictures, Inc. shows up, Nickelodeon is not credited in that season.
      • Nickelodeon also is not credited in the show title card, unlike the original and other localizations.
  • The theme song is a cropped version of the Rap Battle from The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, which was dubbed.
    • The footage used for the season 8 intro is taken from the textless version. However, the SpongeBob on ships bit is localized when the ships combine, similar to the original.
    • Near the end of the intro, the parts where the "kids" sing BobSfungjeri Pantallona-katrori for the first and second time in the Rap Battle scene are added in, therefore misusing the parts where Bubbles says "Stop it" and the Captain says "Ready?" three times. It then uses the last time the kids chant SpongeBob's name, (where Bubbles says "That's enough.") until Bubbles yells "Silence!" at them, thus ending the theme song.
    • The intro also uses the original ocean noise for the end and beginning of the intro (which is cut off when the Captain talks). While SpongeBob doesn't play his flute in this version, instead of showing the localized title card and the "Created by Stephen Hillenburg" base, the flute noise is slightly heard before the ocean noise plays.
    • "It's a SpongeBob Christmas!" uses the regular intro, although the Captain with the wreath is still used.
    • Season 9 uses the full audio for the theme song.
      • So does season 11, and the "kids" are not repeating BobSfungjeri Pantallona-katrori more than four times. They also say BobSfungjeriiiii... Pantallona-katrorii! properly when SpongeBob jumps over the letters.
  • Seasons 10-11 were not licensed. Unlike previous seasons those didn't use textless title card backgrounds but rather content-aware fill. Also the background music is significantly weaker and some effects are missing entirely.
  • The word "idiot" has been continuously censored and replaced with other words such as "hutaq", "i marrë" etc.

Errors

  • In "The Hot Shot," Sandals' "What'd I do?" is not dubbed.
  • In season 9, the logo is spelled "BobSfungjeri Pantollon-Katrori, instead of BobSfungjeri Pantallona-Katrori.
  • In the season 9 intro, SpongeBob's head is overlapped by the text of the logo.
  • The HD intro was never used (although the episodes were aired past 2016) until season 10.
