Tenacle-vison: Squidward becomes the star of his own public access TV show. I Heart Dancing: Squidward tries to sabotage SpongeBob’s big dance audition. The character-driven cartoon chronicles the nautical and often nonsensical adventures of SpongeBob, an incurably optimistic and earnest sea sponge, and his underwater friends. Dwelling a few fathoms beneath the tropical isle of Bikini Atoll in the sub-surface city of Bikini Bottom, SpongeBob lives in a two-story pineapple. Instead of taking the logical approach to everyday challenges, SpongeBob approaches life in a wayward and unconventional way. Whether searching for the ultimate spatula to perfect his burger flipping technique at the Krusty Krab or just hanging out with his best friend Patrick (an amiable starfish), SpongeBob’s good intentions and overzealous approach to life usually create chaos in his underwater world. Growth Spout: Mr. Krabs tries to find enough food to feed Pearl as she goes through her growth spurt. Stuck in the Wringer: After showering, SpongeBob gets stuck in his wringer.
