    Abstract

    This final project is about an analysis of humour in five episodes of SpongeBob season one. Humour is part of language and language deals with words, meaning and culture. Humour deals with those three. The problems of this study are what types of humour found in the five episodes of SpongeBob season one, what techniques of humour appear in the five episodes of SpongeBob season one, and how those dialogues included in certain types and techniques of humour. The five episodes in this study are Help Wanted, Tea at the Treedome, Bubblestand, Ripped Pants and SB-129. There are three objectives of this study. First, to describe the types of humour used in in five episodes of SpongeBob season one. Second, to describe the techniques of humour used in five episodes of SpongeBob season one. Third, to explainhow those dialogues are included in certain types and techniques of humour.The procedures I use in collecting the data are watching the videos, do transcription of the five episodes, and identifying the humour in the dialogues. The procedures I use in analysing the data are classifying, tabulating, and interpreting.In the result of the study, there are three types of humour and twenty techniques of humour in the five episodes of SpongeBob. The type of humour which appear more than the other types is joke and the technique of humour which appear more than the other techniques is absurdity.It is possible if one part consists more than one types and techniques of humour. However in most cases, one type and technique are more dominant than the others. The method to determine that one dialogue applies certain type and technique of humour is by comparing the dialogue with the description of types and techniques of humour. If that dialogue has the characteristic which is the same with the description of one type and technique, it means that dialogue belongs to that type and technique of humour. I suggest that the directors of humour shows can pick the techniques of humour which are suitable for the target audience. Since humour analysis is an interesting analysis, I suggest for further research about humour.
