Speaking of season 5, something weird I always noticed about some season 5 for some reason is that Spongebob's teeth are really big. I know it's a weird thing to point out, but it always felt odd to me.

In season 3 of Adventure Time, "Conquest of Cuteness", "Memory of a Memory", "Hitman", and "Still" are the last episodes to have the original animation style from the first two seasons, everything else in that season has the current art style. The show's tone is more or less the same as the first two seasons, and the show's tone begins to have a transitional phase in season 4, before it shifts to modern AT in season 5.

Something similar happens in season 3 of Regular Show, "Skips vs Technology" is the last episode to use season 1/2 line thickness, from Replaced onward uses the modern Regular Show style, although there are some episodes that look like a hybrid of both styles, like "Trash Boat", "Eggsellent", and "Trash Boat"

Season 1 of Johnny Test had it's own version of MarkerBob, half of the episodes have lines with almost the same thickness, and a little more off model with Animaniacs like animation, and the other half and intro consist of thickline with the thicker lines having thin edges but thick in the middle, and different kinds of movements, both art and movements of that one reminiscent of Fairly OddParents. Here's a comparison anyone got a name for them?

I haven't noticed, good eye, I initially thought that every season 1 episode had the same line thickness, although still not as drastic as the differences between the Spongebob styles
