Although some find it hard to believe, the Sponge Bob SquarePants The series has been around for over 22 years. Set in the underwater city of Bikini Bottom, the show centers around the adventures of SpongeBob and often includes many other colorful characters, such as Patrick, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, and Sandy Cheeks. Recently, fans of the cartoon series recreated some of its classic in-game moments, Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
In a post on Reddit, a user known as Biochao shared a video he made in Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Sponge Bob SquarePants. What made this clip special was that it recreated a scene from the iconic “I don’t need it” scene from “Tea at the Treedome.” In the episode, SpongeBob visits Sandy Cheeks at his treedome. However, things take a comic turn when SpongeBob claims he doesn’t need water to survive.
The clip captured by Biochao began with a crumploid gyroid sitting on a picnic bench in the middle of a room. This Gyroid was obviously meant to fill the role of SpongeBob visiting Sandy in the TV show. Suddenly, the episode’s original dialogue featuring the voice talents of Tom Kenny was heard over the footage. The iconic phrase “I don’t need it” began to be uttered repeatedly as the music progressed to a crescendo. After several deft cuts between a container of liquid on the table and the desiccated Crumploid on the picnic bench, the Gyroid finally shouted, “I need it!”
Besides this impressive cinematography needed to recreate the scene, Biochao managed to design a room similar in appearance to the dome of Sandy seen in the episode. The Reddit user placed wooden benches on opposite sides of a picnic table decorated with a checkered tablecloth. Above the table was an iced tea intended to replace the vase of water seen in the episode. Additionally, the room featured a grass-covered floor juxtaposed against an impressive underwater backdrop, with many schools of fish.
This recreated Sponge Bob SquarePants scene piqued the curiosity of many members of the animal crossing community on Reddit. With an impressive 21.7,000 upvotes in a single day, many were impressed with how well Biochao managed to replicate the mood of the nostalgic scene. “This is hilarious lol I would say mission accomplished,” one person commented.

In the image, the creator made a version of each of the houses seen in the show from objects available in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. There was a rock for Patrick, a Moai house for Squidward, and a pineapple for SpongeBob. They even managed to include simplified versions of each of the characters next to their houses.

Nonetheless, it only seemed to add to the comedy of the design. With over 59.9,000 upvotes, many seemed to like the simplistic street version of classic cartoons. ” Close enough!” one person joked.
