Abstract

Absurdism is a literary theory adapted from philosophical thought that states that human search for the meaning of life is useless. Uniquely, literary works applying this concept usually show the same characteristics: strangely funny. Therefore the researcher is interested in discussing the mentioned topic with the objective of the research: to find out what kinds of absurdity appeared and how absurdism is described in the Club Spongebob. The method used in this research is qualitative method specifically by document analysis. The grand theory for the topic is the Theatre of the Absurd by Martin Esslin. While the object of this research is an episode in Spongebob Squarepants season 3 titled “Club Spongebob”. The results of data analysis show that absurdities appeared in Club Spongebob are in the form of purposeless, skeptic and illogical. On the other hand, absurdism in Club Spongebob is described by the intrinsic elements of the story namely setting, plot and characterization. From the findings of data analysis, it can be concluded that the result of the research is that Club Spongebob is an absurd work with suitable features that match with the theory written in Esslin‟s book. Therefore it is clear and not surprising if the work is indeed has the impression of „strangely funny‟, since most of absurdism literary work does have that kind of impression to the readers or the spectators. Absurdisme adalah teori sastra yang diadaptasi dari pemikiran filsafat yang menyatakan bahwa pencarian manusia terhadap makna hidup akan berujung sia-sia. Uniknya, karya sastra beraliran absurdisme ini memiliki ciri yang mirip: aneh tapi lucu. Karena itu, peneliti tertarik untuk membahas topik tersebut dengan tujuan penelitian: Menemukan macam-macam absurditas yang muncul dan bagaimana absurdism dijelaskan dalam Club Spongebob. Metode penelitian yang digunakan adalah metode kualitatif dengan cara studi dokumentasi. Teori utama yang digunakan adalah the Theatre of the Absurd karya Martin Esslin. Sedangkan objek yang diteliti adalah sebuah episode dari Spongebob Squarepants season 3 berjudul “Club Spongebob”. Hasil dari data analisis menunjukkan bahwa absurditas dalam Club Spongebob berupa nilai ketidak-beradaan tujuan, skeptis dan ketidak-logisan. Di sisi lain, absurdisme dalam Club Spongebob dijelaskan lewat unsur intrinsik dalam cerita yakni setting, alur dan penokohan. Dari penemuan di data analisis, dapat disimpulkan bahwa hasil penelitian ini adalah Club Spongebob merupakan karya bergenre absurd yang sesuai dengan ciri-ciri yang disebutkan di teori dalam buku Esslin. Oleh karena itu, menjadi jelas dan tidak mengherankan apabila karya ini memiliki kesan „aneh tapi lucu‟, mengingat kebanyakan karya bergenre absurdism memang memiliki kesan seperti demikian di mata pembaca atau penonton.
