The Story Of The Ugly Barnacle - SpongeBob SquarePants

Once there was an ugly barnacle...:

Nickelodeon Germany, Nick Austria And Nickelodeon Switzerland To Premiere "Lost In The West" In August 2016

Nickelodeon Northern Europe has announced the exciting news on Nickelodeon Germany's "Nick Pressecenter" that Nickelodeon Germany (Deutschland), Nickelodeon Austria (Österreich) and Nickelodeon Switzerland (Schweiz) will be premiering Lost in the West, Nickelodeon's brand-new three-part original TV movie about two time-traveling stepbrothers who saddle up for a crazy Wild West adventure after they get transported back in time to 1885 when one of them accidentally invents a time machine, in August 2016!


Nickelodeon Northern Europe will premiere Lost in the West "Part 1" on Saturday 13th August 2016 at 16:15 Uhr on Nickelodeon Switzerland and at 17:55 Uhr on Nickelodeon Germany and Nickelodeon Austria (encored the following day, Sunday 14th August 2016, at 11:35 Uhr and 13:20 Uhr on Nickelodeon Germany & Nickelodeon Austria and Nickelodeon Switzerland, respectively).

Following the premiere of Lost in the West part one, Nickelodeon North will premiere Lost in the West "Part 2" on Saturday 13th August 2016 at 16:15 Uhr on Nickelodeon Schweiz and at 17:55 Uhr on Nickelodeon Deutschland and Nickelodeon Österreich. Although currently unconfirmed, Nickelodeon Northern Europe is expected to debut Lost in the West "Part 3" on Nick Switzerland and Nick Germany & Austria following Saturday, 27th August 2016, at the same times.

Nickelodeon Netherlands (Nederland), Nickelodeon Belgium (België; Flanders), Nickelodeon Denmark (Danmark), Nickelodeon Sweden (Sverige) and Nickelodeon Norway are also expected to premiere Nick's all-new television movie on the same days.

Nickelodeon's all-new three-part original TV movie, Lost in the West, centres on polar opposite stepbrothers, Chip, an all-around tech genius who lacks self-confidence, and Dave, a charismatic ladies' man with more brawn than brains. Their otherwise ordinary lives take an extraordinary turn when Chip's latest invention accidently lands them back in time to the Wild West. The duo soon become entangled in a thrilling adventure as they fight off evil outlaws to save their hometown. When their actions in the past have time-altering repercussions, Chip and Dave enlist the help of friends from both time periods, including Luna, Lisa and Texas Jane, to avoid changing the future and make it back to the present in time for their school's Homecoming Dance.



Lost in the West stars Caleb Thomas (Chase Champion, Modern Family) as Chip, Niko Guardado (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn) as Dave, Fallon Smythe as Lisa and Morgan Higgins as Texas Jane, and features an appearance by House of Anubis star Alex Sawyer.

Lost in the West is produced by Galdo Media and directed by Carlos Gonzalez (Big Time Rush). The TV movie is written by Kevin M. Brennan and Doug Manley.

The Stars Of "Victorious" Reunite To Celebrate Ariana Grande's Birthday

It's a Victorious birthday celebration!


In honor of Ariana Grande's 23rd birthday, her former Nickelodeon co-stars joined together to celebrate the starlet!


"Crew minus a few // happy birthday Ariiii" castmate Daniella Monet captioned a group shot of the actors on Instagram, including from left to right, Grande, Monet, Matt Bennett, Leon Thomas III and Avan Jogia.

Before she ignited the pop music scene, Grande was a star on the hit Nickelodeon comedy series, which followed aspiring musicians and actors at Hollywood Arts High School, until it ended in 2013. Following Victorious, Ariana reprised her role, Cat Valentine, in the iCarly/Victorious spin-off series Sam & Cat, in which she co-starred with Jennette McCurdy, who reprised her iCarly character Sam Puckett. All three shows were created by Nickelodeon hitmaker Dan Schneider.


While the "Into You" singer turned one year older on Sunday, the group got together during the week for some late-night fun by the pool. As is mandatory of any star-studded celebration, there was no shortage of swans.

"Thing got too cute last night," Bennett captioned an adorable candid shot of he and Grande holding hands while floating atop the swans in the pool.

Their silly shenanigans was just what Grande ordered for the occasion. "I will forever ever and ever love these two w all my heart," she wrote of Bennett and Jogia as they sang and sucked helium out of balloons.

A few days before Grande's big day, reality star Kylie Jenner gifted the Grammy nominee with her entire lip kit product collection.

"Happy early birthday to me," Ariana shared on Snapchat while displaying her surprise gift. "Thank you Kylie. My [lips] bout to be so happy. Love U."

However, it seemed no one was happier about the present than Grande's mom. "Just saying KyMajesty was actually made for Joan Grande," the singer said on social media as Joan puckered with the color on.

The stars of Victorious previously reunited for a special Christmas onesie party in December last year.

"Trumpton" Creator Gordon Murray Passes Away

Gordon Murray, creator and puppeteer of the popular BBC children's series Trumpton, has sadly died at the age of 95.


Alpha Press

His son-in-law, William Mollett, confirmed the news in a statement to the BBC.

The producer wrote some of the most popular children's television programmes, including The Trumptonshire Trilogy - with big names Camberwick Green, Trumpton and Chigley - which were shown weekly by the BBC from 1966 for 20 years.


Alpha Press

The programmes were later repeated by Channel 4 and then Nick Jr. UK, as part of the channels Noggin/Nick Jr. Classics programming block.

Camberwick Green, which was made using stop-motion animation, was the first children's show to be aired in colour on the BBC in 1966.

Murray was born in London on 3 May 1921 - the youngest of four children.

He attended Emanuel School, where he studied Classics - but later gave up Latin and Greek, after which he spent most of his time in the art and drama departments.

Mr. Mollett told the BBC that Murray enjoyed going to the Victoria Palace Theatre with his father as a child to see variety shows - and particularly liked the marionettes.

Speaking in 1999, Gordon said: "I have been interested in puppets ever since I was a child. My enthusiasm was greatly stimulated, I remember, by a visit to the Victoria Palace when I was about eight to see Delvain's Marionettes on the variety bill. Later, of course, I avidly read the Whanslaw books."

Murray was nine years old when his father died in 1930.

After leaving school, he started working as a journalist and joined the Territorial Army. In 1939 he was enlisted in the London Scottish Regiment.

Having been commissioned into the Royal Corps of Signals, Murray took part in the Normandy landings as a platoon commander, landing on Gold Beach.

After being demobbed at the end of the Second World War, he set up his own puppet company, Murray's Marionettes, worked as an actor in repertory theatre, and appeared in Shakespeare plays and Peter Pan - where he met his wife, ballet dancer Enid Martin.

In the 1950s, Murray established a puppet company touring theatres in the UK, when he was scouted by BBC producer Freda Lingstrom.


Trumpton used stop-motion animation

His first television credit was in 1954 as a puppeteer on Bengo - a children's programme about the adventures of a boxer puppy.

He went on to produce several successful marionette shows for children's television including Sketch Club, Captain Pugwash, and Hans Christian Anderson's The Nightingale. In 1958 he created the series A Rubovian Legend, which ran until 1963, with fellow puppeteers John Hardwick and Bob Bura who he wen ton to work with for years after.

After the BBC's Children's Department and Women's Programmes merged in 1964, Murray had the opportunity to become the BBC's head of children's programmes, but chose instead to form his own independent production company, Gordon Murray Puppets Productions, where he created the Trumptonshire trilogy.

Camberwick Green, Trumpton and Chigley were created using stop motion animation and actual 3D scaled down models.


Windy Miller appeared in Camberwick Green - part of the Trumptonshire trilogy

The characters were eight inches tall, with heads made out of ping-pong balls and clothes out of foam latex.

There were 39 short episodes across the trilogy - all of which were first broadcast on BBC One, airing before the midday news.

The programmes were digitally restored and re-released in 2011, after the original footage was found in the family's attic and in the BBC archives.

Murray went on to create television shows Skip and Fluffy, which aired as part of the Multi-Coloured Swap Show in 1978, and The Gublins.


Iconic: Trumpton aired on the BBC in the 1960s and 1970s

He retired from animation in the 1980s and went on to produce 34 limited edition miniature books, bound entirely by hand.

After the Trumptonshire Trilogy ended, Murray decided to burn all of his puppets, except for one soldier from Camberwick Green.

In an interview on Radio 4, he said: "I burnt them in a bonfire in my garden. I'd had them for some time after the transmissions had stopped.

"And various people had said "oh they're old fashioned", and they always were old fashioned actually. They were old fashioned from the word go.

"They had been used an awful lot you know so I burnt them, together with the scenery."

He added: "A puppet is an actor you see, and as an actor he only exists as he is performing. After that he's done his job and therefore the actual figure is redundant."

Following the news of Murray's passing, tributes begun pouring in, and one fan wrote on Twitter: "Camberwick Green, Trumpton & Chigley creator dies. Thank you Gordon Murray for adding vibrant colour to my childhood." While another added: "Thank you for so many happy memories. RIP Gordon Murray."

In recent years he lived with his family near Stamford and is survived by his daughters Emma and Rose and his four grandchildren.

Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends Patrick Star, Squidward Tentacles and Mr. Krabs are visiting from Bikini Bottom to engage with guests and fans from all over the world in the city’s first-ever SpongeBob Water Party. Fans of the adorable character can collect limited-edition souvenirs and enjoy SpongeBob-themed healthy vegetable delicacies and cooling dishes. Ocean Park is also presenting various “Get Closer to the Animals” programmes, including the time-limited summer edition of Grand Aquarium Exploration, which takes guests on a memorable marine adventure. A second wave of summer surprise will start on 15 July, with around 800 prizes being given out every week to guests through the Ocean Park Mobile App.


Drenching Water Party and Challenging AMaze-ing Lasers
The first-ever SpongeBob Water Party in Hong Kong transports guests into the wondrous world of Bikini Bottom, letting them enjoy a range of immersive water attractions with SpongeBob SquarePants and friends, as well as fun photo and video opportunities for sharing with friends and family. Another major highlight is AMaze-ing Lasers, a brand new ride brought over from the United States for the first time. Players will get the chance to unleash their wits and agility in traversing the laser grids within a pitch dark chamber, as if they were playing an action hero. Each player will receive a score when they press the buttons at different corners of the chamber, making it possible for friends to compete in reaching higher scores. Mega Gush offers the greatest cooling sensation as guests stand below a huge water bucket and feel the incomparable cascading chilling pleasure. Jumbo Bubble Playground, another brand new attraction, allows guests to create giant human-sized bubbles alongside SpongeBob-themed decorations, making it a colourful photo backdrop. The must-visit Rainbow Fountain cools guests with its fancy waterspouts synchronised to colourful lights and rhythms. Guests of all ages alike will be mesmerised by the strong beats and dynamic lighting at the Wild Foam Zone.


Near the Water Party zone, friends can target each other with water bombs at the Super Splash Battle, soaking each other in a fun and festive atmosphere. Kids would want to join the Kids DIY Workshop at Whiskers Harbour to take home their masterpieces such as SpongeBob keychains, Patrick Star catapults, fish and panda dolls made with rainbow-coloured clay.


Exclusive SpongeBob x Ocean Park Merchandise & Themed Dishes
Fans will want to roam the Park to look for SpongeBob and his friends in different summer looks and be prepared for a surprise appearance by SpongeBob who will interact with them. During Summer Splash, guests can visit the limited-time SpongeBob Pop-Up Store near Applause Pavilion to shop for a wide range of limited-edition Ocean Park X SpongeBob SquarePants merchandise, including umbrellas, beach mats, T-shirts and water bottles. Fans looking to spread the fun may take advantage of the face painting service and camouflage themselves as SpongeBob and his friends. In addition, a series of SpongeBob-themed healthy vegetarian dishes are available at various in-park restaurants and food kiosks featuring decorations of SpongeBob SquarePants.


Tom Mehrmann, Chief Executive of Ocean Park, said, “As one of our signature seasonal events, Summer Splash has become a favourite summer activity for students and a popular outing for the entire family. Riding on our successful experience of introducing popular characters into our festive events in recent years, we have invited SpongeBob who lives in a pineapple house under the sea to join our Summer Splash this year to offer guests of all ages a wonderful summer party experience. Through the SpongeBob Water Party, vegetarian delicacies and time-limited Pop-up Store, we hope to satisfy our guests’ appetite for fun, shopping and food in one go.”


Cool Snacks and Lakeside BBQ Add to Summer Fun
Cooling snacks such as iced pineapple and mini watermelon will also be available at food kiosks to help guests beat the summer heat. Ocean Park is also launching its first-ever Lakeside BBQ Carnival, where guests can savour scrumptious skewers and barbequed food including Grilled U.S. Beef Ribeye Cubes, New Zealand Mussels in White Wine and Herbs, as well as assorted skewers and sausages along with special cool drinks, pushing the party atmosphere to a climax.
