Although SpongeBob’s TV debut was on May 1, 1999, the character’s previously established birthday was much earlier and is today! Continuing on from the series, as seen on SpongeBob’s driver’s license, it’s July 14, 1986, so the character is sort of thirty-four years old to this day. To mark the occasion, Nickelodeon and fans of the Animated Fried Cook are paying tribute to the icon of animation we’ve gathered below. Yesterday, coincidentally, marked the birthday of none other than Tom Kenny, the voice actor who breathed life into SpongeBob SquarePants for more than twenty years and twelve seasons.
As SpongeBob’s flagship series continues on Netflix, the younger years of SpongeBob’s life will be explored in a new series on the Nickelodeon series titled Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years. Kenny and the other main cast members of the series will reprise their roles. Additionally, the character is set to make his way to the big screen again with The movie SpongeBob: The runaway sponge. Originally slated to arrive in May of this year, the film has been pushed back to August and is now slated for its VOD debut in early 2021. The film will then air exclusively on CBS All Access.
