The one who created Spongebob Squarepants. A genius and one of the funniest writers and directors on the planet. He directed and wrote episodes of Spongebob for seasons 1, 2, and 3 and the movie. BUT after that he gave his job to another man, Paul Tibbitt. Paul Tibbitt has ruined the series.
Unfortunatly Stephen Hillenburg is greedy and doesn't love Spongebob, his creation, because he stated in an interview he isn't coming back and wants to move on to new shows...if he loved Spongebob, he would come back to save what Paul Tibbitt has done to the show.
