Wumbo is real because this is a first grade word. Wumbo is just the first grade mind attempting to yell "WOW! Thats Big!" Or, "WOW! THATS JUMBO!" as the word wumbo is a mix of jumbo and wow. Due to the fact that patrick star's mind is of kindergarten level, this word is much used. Here is a list of proof.

I used the word on an old first grade test.
I've heard other companies use this word.
according to our test subject, patrick star, if M=Mini, then W=Wumbo. This shows that wumbo is the opposite of small.
There are scientist who study height
The M had to be moved upward.
This did increase the size of the citizens of bikini bottom.

Wumbo is not considered a word. In all major dictionaries it is not listed as a word.

Many words are coined for specific applications for comedic effect. An example of this is from "How I Met Your Mother" where "Awsful" is used. That does not mean that "Awsful" is a real word, but a combination of two words that the viewer understands to be for comedy. "Wumbo" is used for the same reason.

These fake or coined words from TV shows will likely not be entered into a dictionary and considered a true word until they enter colloquial usage in the English language. Because the word "Wumbo" is used only in reference to Spongebob, it is not used colloquially and thus not a true word.

To directly address PRO: What corporations have used the term 'Wumbo'? Was it used as a reference to Spongebob or not?
