"That Was A Real Mistake": SpongeBob Celebrity Guest Expresses … – Screen Rant


One of SpongeBob SquarePants’ most notable celebrity guests expresses her regret over appearing on the animated show, calling it a “mistake.”
SpongeBob SquarePants celebrity guest star Pink says she regrets recording an iconic SpongeBob song. Pink appears as a pirate in SpongeBob SquarePants season 6, episode 23, “Truth or Square.” This special episode celebrates the 10th anniversary of the classic animated series, hosted by live-action pirate Patchy the Pirate. Now, the show is about to mark its 25th anniversary, and will soon return for SpongeBob SquarePants season 15 in 2024.
Pink expresses regret towards recording the “Truth or Square” song, “We’ve Got Scurvy.” In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Pink listed “We’ve Got Scurvy” as one of the two worst songs she has ever recorded. She called “We’ve Got Scurvy” a “real mistake.” Check out the full quote from Pink below:
“Oh wait, I did put out that ‘SpongeBob’ thing — ‘We’ve Got Scurvy.’ I wish I never did that. That was a real mistake.”
Clad in pirate garb, Pink leads a band of pirates in singing “We’ve Got Scurvy.” The minute-long song features lyrics that reference the symptoms and causes of the infamous pirate disease. Lines like “We’ve got spots on our backs / So give it up and shout,” and “We got scurvy, we need some Vitamin C / We got scurvy, we need a lemon tree,” couple with low-production-value props like oranges dangling from above on strings to create a hilarious short SpongeBob song.

“We’ve Got Scurvy” was a standout hit from the first decade of SpongeBob SquarePants, and featured on the compilation album SpongeBob’s Greatest Hits. The album features other classic SpongeBob songs, including some of the most oft-quoted like “F.U.N. Song,” “Campfire Song Song,” and the show’s shanty-inspired theme song. While SpongeBob does not feature a song in every episode, musical numbers are plentiful in both the series and The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie and its sequels.
Within these musical numbers, there are copious great hits that could be considered the greatest SpongeBob SquarePants song. One that particularly holds up is the melodramatic Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob duet “This Grill Is Not a Home” from SpongeBob SquarePants season 2, episode 34, “Welcome to the Chum Bucket,” where SpongeBob gets poached by Plankton to work at the Chum Bucket. Other catchy ones include “Now That We’re Men” from The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie and “Ripped Pants” from the season 1 episode of the same name. And, as much as Pink may regret it, “We’ve Got Scurvy” also holds up as one of the show’s most clever, albeit unhinged, musical numbers.
