In case you missed it, a ton of things went down at this year’s Comic-Con festival in San Diego. Among a slew of trailer unveils was a new teaser from Nickelodeon, highlighting the first-ever stop-motion episode of SpongeBob.
Titled “Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom,” the halloween special will center around the Flying Dutchman, who attempts to bring fear to everyone in town, while SpongeBob remains a difficult culprit due to insisting that scary things are funny.
The monumental episode will reportedly feature 27 sets across five stages, 15 boxes of breakfast cereal creating texture for Bikini Bottom’s coral reefs, eight pounds of glitter decorating SpongeBob’s Halloween pineapple house, and hundreds of Popsicle sticks used for planks of a roller-coaster track that Patrick and SpongeBob ride.
The stop-motion episode of SpongeBob is set to air this October.
