‘SpongeBob SquarePants’ game show in the works
Viacom Digital Studios is creating a game show based on the popular “SpongeBob SquarePants” animated series, the company announced Monday. The “SpongeBob Smarty Pants Game Show” will debut later this year on Facebook and the SpongeBob-branded YouTube channel.
The series will feature two “SpongeBob” super fans competing to win the “Golden Pineapple” by completing messy stunts, answering trivia questions and competing in SpongeBob-themed games.
Created by the late Stephen Hillenburg, the “SpongeBob” franchise has also launched a Broadway musical and multiple movies. The third theatrical film, “It’s a Wonderful Sponge,” is scheduled to be released on May 22.
