  • According to SpongeBob Wiki, after the first few airings of the Karate Island episode, Nickelodeon removed the dedication after the Best Day Ever Marathon

None for the people who gave respect to Mr. Morita. However, the black background, silence and Mr. Morita staring at the viewer may startle some if alone.
