Nickelodeon Drops ‘SpongeBob SquarePants Presents The Tidal Zone’ Trailer and Art

Get ready for a multidimensional adventure – a tale of comedy and caution, satire and stupidity in the first ‘SpongeBob Universe’ crossover special coming in January.

Nickelodeon takes viewers on a multidimensional adventure deep below the ocean’s surface throughout Bikini Bottom with the first-ever SpongeBob Universe crossover special, SpongeBob SquarePants Presents The Tidal Zone. A tale of comedy and caution, satire and stupidity, where minds may switch, bodies may shrink, and robots may rise. And it all premieres Friday, January 13, at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT), with encores Saturday, January 14, and Sunday, January 15, at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. The special will premiere across Nickelodeon’s international channels next year.

Check out the new art (below) and trailer for the highly anticipated adventure:

The one-hour television special is an extraordinary journey where two dimensions can become three, and French divers can wear black ties… and narrate! The adventure follows GrandPat making his way through each dimension and each of the three animated series within the SpongeBob Universe (SpongeBob SquarePants, The Patrick Star Show, and the Paramount+ original series Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years).

The show features the legendary voice talents of Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants); Bill Fagerbakke (Patrick Star); Jill Talley (Karen, Squidina); Cree Summer (Bunny Star); Tom Wilson (Cecil Star); Dana Snyder (GrandPat); Clancy Brown (Mr. Krabs); Mr. Lawrence (Plankton); Carolyn Lawrence (Sandy Cheeks); and Rodger Bumpass (Squidward).

Since its launch July 17, 1999, SpongeBob SquarePants - the series that chronicles the nautical and sometimes nonsensical adventures of SpongeBob, an incurable optimist and earnest sea sponge, and his undersea friends - has reigned as the most-watched animated series for nearly 20 consecutive years. The show has generated a universe of beloved characters, pop culture catchphrases and memes, theatrical releases, consumer products, a Tony award-winning Broadway musical, and a global fan base spread over more than 170 countries.

SpongeBob SquarePants was created by Stephen Hillenburg and is produced by Nickelodeon in Burbank, California.
