Who doesn’t love a good Halloween special?
We’ll reunite with underwater villain The Flying Dutchman in the upcoming “SpongeBob: Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom,” a stop-motion special headed to Nickelodeon on Friday, October 13 at 7pm EST. The kid-friendly special promises to be mind boggling, teeth chattering, eye popping and, well, not so scary.
Check out the official trailer below!
In the Halloween special…
The Flying Dutchman wants to make sure SpongeBob and his friends are scared on Halloween.
“The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom” is being produced at Screen Novelties, a Los Angeles-based stop-motion animation production company, where miniature puppets and sets bring Bikini Bottom to life in three dimensions. 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.
