Pop culture star David Dobrik dives down to Bikini Bottom to host The Stars of SpongeBob Fan Favorites Special, a virtual table read uniting the voices behind the popular characters, premiering Friday, June 5, at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. The Stars of SpongeBob Fan Favorites Special sees voice actors Tom Kenny (SpongeBob), Bill Fagerbakke (Patrick), Rodger Bumpass (Squidward), Carolyn Lawrence (Sandy), Clancy Brown (Mr. Krabs) and Mr. Lawrence (Plankton) come together in a virtually produced special to bring to life classic SpongeBob SquarePants scenes.
Dobrik helps bring to life the nautical nonsense of SpongeBob SquarePants by guiding the voice cast to recreate the most memorable moments and lines from the show. Dobrik will also lead the cast through a lightning round of the best one-liners and iconic quotes, later joining them for a brand-new rendition of the “F.U.N. Song.”
The Stars of SpongeBob Fan Favorites Special will feature animation from the original episodes alongside the voice cast’s re-creation of beloved scenes. Fans picked from classic moments, including “Band Rehearsal,” “Alaskan Bull Worm,” “I’m Dirty Dan,” and more on NickPlay.com.
