Since he made his Nickelodeon debut in 1999, SpongeBob SquarePants has had countless adventures (some of them quite trippy, in fact) and his latest looks to be another memorable one for the show's scrapbook, as SpongeBob meets his backbone in the trailer for The Legend of Boo-kini Bottom, a new stop-motion animated special airing on October, Friday the 13th.
Watch the new trailer for The Legend of Boo-kini Bottom below, and in case you missed it, watch a Comic-Con clip from the special.
"See Sponge-BOO SCARE-Pants in a brand new stop motion special! It’s spooky! It’s spongey! It’s stop motion-y! Don’t miss the brand new SpongeBob special, The Legend of Boo-kini Bottom, this Friday the 13th! (Insert evil laugh here!)
The production features 27 unique sets, across five stages, where 15 boxes of breakfast cereal were used to create texture on Bikini Bottom's coral reefs; eight pounds of glitter were used to decorate SpongeBob’s Halloween pineapple house; hundreds of popsicle sticks created the planks of the rollercoaster track that Patrick and SpongeBob ride; and “black lights” were used to create a fluorescent glow across the puppets and sets. Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller are the supervising producers on SpongeBob SquarePants. The special was written by Mr. Lawrence, with Brian Morante serving as the storyboard director. The special is being directed by Mark Caballero and Seamus Walsh, and produced by Chris Finnegan of Screen Novelties."
