Are you ready kids? Aye aye captain! SpongeBob’s Best Year ever continues with a table read of a fan-favorite episode, all the latest Bikini Bottom news, and a sneak preview of a brand new episode. Bring it around town to hear from voice actors Tom Kenny (SpongeBob), Bill Fagerbakke (Patrick), Rodger Bumpass (Squidward), Clancy Brown (Mr. Krabs) and Carolyn Lawrence (Sandy), along with co-executive producers Vincent Waller and Marc Ceccarelli and moderator Busy Philipps, about what it’s like to be part of this iconic Nickelodeon cartoon. So drop on the deck and flop like a fish, because we’re celebrating 20 years of nautical nonsense!

Since its launch July 17, 1999, "SpongeBob SquarePants" has reigned as the number-one kids’ animated series on TV for the last 17 years, while generating a universe of beloved characters, pop culture catchphrases and memes, theatrical releases, consumer products, a Tony award-winning Broadway musical and a global fan base. "SpongeBob SquarePants" is the most widely distributed property in Viacom International Media Networks history, seen in more than 170 countries, translated in 30+ languages, and averaging more than 100 million total viewers every quarter. "SpongeBob SquarePants" is created by Stephen Hillenburg and produced by Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif. The character-driven cartoon chronicles the nautical and sometimes nonsensical adventures of SpongeBob, an incurably optimist and earnest sea sponge, and his undersea friends.

Co-presented by the Cartoon Art Museum.
