SpongeBob SquarePants has been delighting audiences with fresh levels of absurdity since 1999. While the regular cast is entertaining enough, celebrity guest stars on SpongeBob make the show truly special. Over the course of 12 seasons and two movies (a third movie is slated for 2020), countless celebrities have lent their voices to one-shot or recurring SpongeBob characters - and some of these appearances are pretty surprising. 

Among the notable celebrity SpongeBob cameos are Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame playing the Moth, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham as Queen Amphitrite, the late great Rik Mayall as Lord Reginald, and Betty White of the Golden Girls as Beatrice. Does this mean that the Moth is secretly a Jedi? Maybe not, but it sure is a fun fan theory. Guest stars also include Marion Ross (as Grandma SquarePants), Victoria Beckham (as Queen Amphitrite) and even Pantera and Will Ferrell as themselves - though on different episodes.

There are so many exciting cameos that it's easy to feel greedy and want more - but not to worry, there are 80+ cameos and chances are high that at least one of your celebrity faves is among them.
