In terms of animation, Season 5 looks a lot more like modern SpongeBob than pre-movie does.

Anyone notice how season 2-3 look way more different from season 5, than season 5 does from season 12:


This is what a typical season 2-3 episode would look like:
SpongeBob - Sailor Mouth


Here's what a typical season 5 episode looks like:

SpongeBob - Banned in Bikini Bottom


Here's season 12:

Weird. "Sailor Mouth" and "Banned in Bikini Bottom" are only six years apart, and they look like they were animated by two completely different studios. But "Banned in Bikini Bottom" and "Breakin', are 12 years apart, and they still look very simular (Same color palate, similar line thickness), the only difference is the fact that S12 is in HD. Isn't it weird how the early post-movie seasons look a lot more like modern Spongebob than pre-movie. I've heard somewhere that season 2-3 were animated using different software, which is why the show's animation hasn't really changed much since season 5 or so (With the exception of some ugly-looking season 6 episodes).

If SpongeBob is colored with a more pale shade of yellow, it's probably a Season 2 episode.

Yep. Season 4 onwards is animated with Toon Boom, while Seasons 2 and 3 are animated traditionally, but then colored with digital ink-and-paint.

What's funny is how SpongeBob has only used one studio for the whole series (Rough Draft Korea).
