New York, NY– Experience an all-new, spine-tingling adventure with SpongeBob, Patrick and the gang in the DVD premiere of SpongeBob SquarePants: Legends of Bikini Bottom, which bows on DVD ten weeks before its on-air premiere in January 2011. Even the spineless will squirm as SpongeBob and Patrick find themselves held prisoner by a backward gang. SpongeBob and pals look for a way out of the Bikini Bottom Triangle and an evil hag curses the Krusty Krab! Try not to laugh as Patrick finds he has lots in common with a monster that invades town, SpongeBob and Patrick search for a drain that once destroyed the city, and a volcanic eruption brings an ancient warrior to Bikini Bottom. This never-before-seen journey from the Emmy Award-winning SpongeBob SquarePants contains six legends in one swell adventure. Created by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment, SpongeBob SquarePants: Legends of Bikini Bottom lands on DVD November 16, 2010 for the suggested retail price of $19.99.
For more than a decade, the porous brainchild of creator Steve Hillenburg has grown from a single Saturday morning kids’ show to a certified pop culture maverick.
