lol

The tweet verbatim said "believe it or not, the models are exactly the same as they were in Season 3, but every artist handles them a little differently"

Meaning that the model hasn't changed, it never has. SpongeBob's "new look" from Season 4 onwards is just a result of new artists. The model sheet never changed after Season 3 in the first place. Wouldn't make sense for them to go back to an old model again anyway tbh
Read the tweets below.

With sherm and other onboard we won't have the expressionless stiff rectangle that we had before

I think what Jibbix meant was the reason SpongeBob looks "stiff and expressionless" was because of different interpretations from new artists, but the models have not been changed since season 3.

When you show it like that, it does look like it's the same model used by different artists.
Exactly, SpongeBob's model never changes. It's his art style that change. Jibbix's right folks.

Season 9s is off in a way. Can't explain it.

Small eyes? Big nose? Small face?
His head is much square and shorter. But his model is still the same.

I'm just happy that the show is still using Hand-Drawn animation (One of the last shows on nick left to do so) and not being animated in CGI or in Flash.

Good, I hated modern SpongeBob's tiny faced boxy design with huge cheeks.

EDIT: "expressionless stiff rectangle" is how I would describe modern SpongeBob's design too.

I'm digging this. I'm interested to see how things change now that new storyboarders are being added.
