For a monumental SpongeBob moment, three different shows from the Nickelodeon universe are coming together as SpongeBob SquarePants, The Patrick Star Show, and Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years join forces for an hour-long crossover event.
SpongeBob SquarePants, the tv show that started it all, began airing in 1999. It was initially conceived by Steven Hillenburg, a marine science instructor with a deep love for the ocean. The show centers around the titular character SpongeBob and his misadventures with his friends Patrick Star, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, and Sandy Cheeks, to name just a few. The show was just renewed for season 14 and seems to have no intention of stopping.
SpongeBob Squarepants has seen enough success to generate spinoffs featuring different characters or the characters we know and love at different stages of life. The Patrick Star Show puts the spotlight on Patrick and his family, while Paramount+’s Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years stars the SpongeBob characters as young kids attending a summer camp.
Now both the original animated series and its two spinoffs are coming together for this crossover special. SpongeBob SquarePants Presents the Tidal Zone will show Bikini Bottom in a whole new light, with a host of wild happenings. A clip shared at a recent New York Comic Con event gives a preview into the new special, showing Patrick and his immediate family dealing with the consequences of being shrunk.
SpongeBob Squarepants Presents the Tidal Zone will premiere on Friday, Nov. 25 on Nickelodeon. It will be the latest addition to the ever-expanding SpongeBob SquarePants universe, with three movies focused on particular SpongeBob characters coming soon to Paramount+, as well as an additional theatrical movie release on the way.
