Spongebob Squarepants Announces Special Episode For 20th Anniversary

Ya gotta pay attention!

Spongebob Squarepants hasn’t been seen in primetime for quite some time, but that’s all going to change this July. To help coincide with the show’s 20th anniversary, Nickelodeon will be premiering a brand-new episode on July 12th @ 7 pm ET/PT called “SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout”. The episode is a live-action/animated one-hour special that will see the voices of SpongeBob, Patrick, Mr. Krabs, Sandy, Squidward, and Plankton come out from behind the voice booth alongside guest star David Hasselhoff in his return as “Baywatch”.

The premise of the episode revolves around Patrick and Spongebob being set up in an almost multiverse type deal when the duo heads to the surface and run into their live-action counterparts. Furthermore,  the rest of the Bikini Bottom residents get busy planning Spongebob’s surprise party. Toys inspired by the episode will be made available from Alpha Toys and you can see what those look like here.

SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine science educator and animator Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. The series chronicles the adventures and endeavors of the title character and his various friends in the fictional underwater city of Bikini Bottom.
