Looks like the voice cast of SpongeBob SquarePants is heading back to Bikini Bottom once again. They’re getting together for a special virtual table read. Rather than choosing a single episode to read straight through, they’re instead performing memorable moments from multiple episodes. They’re giving power to the fans to choose iconic scenes that they’ll then recreate. It’s a fun way to approach a table read for Nickelodeon’s longest-running animated series.
SpongeBob SquarePants premiered in 1999. It’s remained the most-watched animated program for kids for the past 17 years. Yes, seventeen years! We have no doubt that fans of all ages will be excited to watch the cast’s virtual performance. The Stars of SpongeBob Fan Favorites Special will also incorporate animation from the original series alongside the cast’s new performances. You can place your vote for what you want to see at NickPlay.com right now.
The episode selection is pretty solid, with classics like “F.U.N. Song” and “Band Rehearsal,” as well as lesser known gems such as “My Wallet” and “Sweater of Tears.” We know the table read will also include a performance of a new rendition of the “F.U.N. Song.” I can’t wait to see what they change in that song that is now stuck in my head for the rest of the day.
While you can only vote for one episode at a time on the website, it doesn’t seem that there’s a limit to how many times you can vote. So if you’re dying to see voice talents like Tom Kenny and Clancy Brown act out your favorite scenes, get to voting!
This virtual table read is a welcome addition to the many casts that have already come together in these trying times to raise money and bring joy to those who love their shows. This particular table read will be a great event for families who want to see SpongeBob, Patrick, Sandy ,and the rest of the gang IRL (from the safety of their homes). See you at the virtual Krusty Krab on Nickelodeon on June 5th!
