Nickelodeon Debuts 4 New Episodes of SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS in 'The Super Spongy Square Games', 7/21

SpongeBob's hilarious escapades and nautical adventures continue with the premiere of four brand-new episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants on Saturday, July 21, at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. "The Super Spongy Square Games" one-hour television event includes "Extreme Spots," starring celebrity voiceover guest Johnny Knoxville (MTV's Jackass) as Johnny Krill, "Squirrel Record," "Demolition Doofus" and "Face Freeze." Viewers can satisfy their SpongeBob SquarePants appetites by tuning into the 12-hour marathon beginning at 9:00 a.m. (ET/PT).

During "Extreme Spots," Knoxville lends his voice for Johnny Krill, a member of The Drasticals extreme sports team. When The Drasticals come to town, their new super fans, SpongeBob and Patrick, try to do whatever it takes to join them, no matter how extreme - or dangerous. Whether attempting sand motor biking, hang gliding, seashell surfing or extreme bubble blowing, SpongeBob and Patrick undertake the challenge in an effort to demonstrate they're extreme.

Next in "Squirrel Record," Sandy is determined to break a record number of world records, in record time, so SpongeBob joins her for an action-packed weekend of dangerous record setting! World's longest tooth, spiciest chili gargle and most chainsaws juggled are among the records Sandy is aiming to beat.

In "Demolition Doofus," Mrs. Puff enters SpongeBob into the Demolition Derby, where his bad driving makes him a star, and SpongeBob and Patrick bet who can hold a "funny face" the longest - until their faces freeze that way during "Face Freeze."

Viewers can logon to SpongeBob.com to play all new games including a brand new Olympic-Themed, Tournament Style ClubHouse, "Bikini Bottom Games." Quizzes, photos, videos, and additional content will provide users with a complete interactive experience. The full "Extreme Spots" episode will be available on iTunes the day following the premiere.

Since its launch in July 1999, SpongeBob SquarePants has emerged as a pop culture phenomenon. The series has been the number-one animated program with kids 2-11 for more than 12 consecutive years on Nickelodeon; and over the past several years, it has averaged more than 100 million total viewers every quarter across all Nickelodeon networks.

SpongeBob SquarePants is executive produced by creator Stephen Hillenburg, who previously worked as a writer, director and creative director on Nickelodeon's animated series Rocko's Modern Life. Hillenburg graduated from the California Institute of the Arts with a master's degree in experimental animation and studied marine biology and art as an undergraduate.

Paul Tibbitt served as a director and writer on SpongeBob SquarePants for its first three seasons and is currently executive producer. He wrote some of the show's most memorable episodes such as "Ripped Pants" and "Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy." Tibbitt was one of the co-writers and storyboard artists on The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. SpongeBob SquarePants is a Nicktoons Production and is produced at the Nickelodeon Animation Studios in Burbank, Calif.

Nickelodeon, now in its 33rd year, is the number-one entertainment brand for kids. It has built a diverse, global business by putting kids first in everything it does. The company includes television programming and production in the United States and around the world, plus consumer products, online, recreation, books and feature films.
