Nickelodeon Benelux To Premiere 'SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend Of Boo-Kini Bottom' On Sunday 19th October 2017


Nickelodeon Netherlands (Nederland) and Nickelodeon Belgium (België; Flanders) treats viewers to a spooky stop-motion special with the premiere of SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom on Sunday 19th October 2017 at 16:30 uur! Locally titled De legende van Boe-kini Broek, Nick's new Halloween special tells the story of the Flying Dutchman (Vliegende Hollander, special guest star DJ Hardwell) coming to Bikini Bottom to make sure everyone in town is scared--especially SpongeBob, who seems to be unflappable in his belief that spooky things are actually funny.

DJ Hardwell voices the Flying Dutchman in the Dutch version of "The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom".

Inspired by the visual style of classic stop-motion animation TV specials, Bikini Bottom is decked out for Halloween and features Sandy's treedome as a mad scientist's lab, including a giant remotely operated Acorn Monster; Mr. Krabs' restaurant as "The Horrors of the Chum Bucket," displaying scenes of Plankton torturing food; and Plankton's restaurant as "The Horrors of the Krusty Krab," telling the story of Mr. Krabs turning customers into Krabby Patties and more.

The characters wear Halloween costumes, with SpongeBob as a flower, Patrick as a knight, Sandy as a mad scientist, Mr. Krabs as a dollar bill, Plankton as a devil, Squidward as himself, and Karen as a cat. SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom features an original song, "The Scare Song," written by Mr. Lawrence, music by Eban Schletter and performed by the Flying Dutchman's crew of pirate ghosts.

The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom was produced at Screen Novelties, a Los Angeles-based stop-motion animation production company, where miniature puppets and sets brought Bikini Bottom to life in three dimensions. The production featured 27 unique sets, across five stages, where 15 boxes of breakfast cereal were used to create texture on Bikini Bottom's coral reefs; eight pounds of glitter were used to decorate SpongeBob's Halloween pineapple house; hundreds of popsicle sticks created the planks of the rollercoaster track that Patrick and SpongeBob ride; and "black lights" were used to create a fluorescent glow across the puppets and sets.

The special features various production techniques including: stop-motion puppet animation, marionette puppeteering, hand puppets and 2D hand-drawn animation designed by Sally Cruikshank.

Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller are co-executive producers on SpongeBob SquarePants. The special was written by Mr. Lawrence, with Brian Morante serving as the storyboard director and Jennie Monica as producer. The special is being directed by Mark Caballero and Seamus Walsh, and produced by Chris Finnegan of Screen Novelties.

This is the second time Nickelodeon has partnered with Screen Novelties on a SpongeBob SquarePants stop-motion episode. SpongeBob SquarePants: It's a SpongeBob Christmas! debuted December 2012 and featured Plankton turning everybody in Bikini Bottom from nice to naughty.

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom made its world debut on Nickelodeon USA on Friday 13th October 2017 at 7:00pm (ET/PT), and is currently rolling out on Nickelodeon channels and programming blocks globally.

In the US-English dub of SpongeBob SquarePants, SpongeBob SquarePants is voiced by Tom Kenny as SpongeBob SquarePants, an incurably optimistic sea sponge who lives in a pineapple under the sea; Bill Fagerbakke as Patrick Star, SpongeBob's silly best friend; Roger Bumpass as Squidward, an aloof cashier of The Krusty Krab and SpongeBob's neighbor; Clancy Brown as Mr. Krabs, SpongeBob's boss and greedy owner of The Krusty Krab; Carolyn Lawrence as Sandy Cheeks, Bikini Bottom's only resident rodent aquanaut and scientist; Mr. Lawrence as Plankton, owner of the Chum Bucket and chief rival of Mr. Krabs; and Brian Doyle-Murray as the Flying Dutchman, Bikini Bottom's resident unfriendly ghost.

SpongeBob SquarePants is executive produced by creator Stephen Hillenburg, who previously worked as a writer, director and creative director on Nickelodeon's animated series Rocko's Modern Life. Hillenburg graduated from the California Institute of the Arts with a master's degree in experimental animation and his undergraduate degree, from Humboldt State University, was in natural science with an emphasis in marine biology. Hillenburg executive produced his first feature film, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, which debuted Nov. 19, 2004 and his second theatrical, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, hit theaters Feb. 6, 2015. The series is produced at Nickelodeon in Burbank.

DJ Hardwell jaagt SpongeBob de stuipen op het lijf bij Nickelodeon

Halloween-special zondag 29 oktober om 16.30 uur te zien bij Nickelodeon

DJ Hardwell laat zich zondag 29 oktober van zijn meest angstaanjagende kant horen in de Halloween-special van SpongeBob SquarePants op Viacom-zender Nickelodeon. Hardwell kruipt in de stop-motion geanimeerde aflevering De legende van Boe-kini Broek in de geest van de Vliegende Hollander. Als SpongeBob Halloween eerder grappig dan eng blijkt te vinden doet de Vliegende Hollander z'n uiterste best om SpongeBob en Patrick toch de stuipen op het lijf te jagen.

Hardwell: "Ik vind het als groot fan echt een enorme eer om gevraagd te zijn deze rol in te spreken in SpongeBob! De rol van Vliegende Hollander was een hele toffe om te doen, want hij is heel erg druk en heel erg evil. Als ik op het podium sta kan ik ook aardig schreeuwen, dus de gelijkenis is duidelijk aanwezig!"

De SpongeBob SquarePants Halloween-special is op zondag 29 oktober om 16.30 uur te zien op Nickelodeon en daarna terug te kijken op en in de Nickelodeon Play app.
