Plot Synopsis

SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS is an animated comedy series that follow the nautical and nonsensical adventures of the world's most lovable sponge, the eternal optimist SpongeBob, and his starfish sidekick, Patrick. Though they have the best intentions, these BFFs are always causing trouble in Bikini Bottom...and plenty of laughs. When he's not at the Krusty Krab grilling up epic Krabby Patties, SpongeBob can be found jellyfishing with Patrick, blowing bubbles, or annoying his favorite neighbor, Squidward.

Nickelodeon pays tribute to 20 years of SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS with a one-hour mixed live-action and animation special, "SpongeBob's Big Birthday Blowout," where SpongeBob and Patrick tour the surface world. For the first time, the voice talent behind SpongeBob, Patrick, Mr. Krabs, Sandy, Squidward and Plankton play live-action doppelganger versions of the animated characters they voice, along with guest star David Hasselhoff. Additional guest stars in the special include Kel Mitchell, Jack Griffo, and Daniella Perkins.

The special -- which premieres Friday, July 12, 2019 from 7-8pm ET/PT on Nickelodaon -- features Patrick and SpongeBob taking a journey to the surface world, where the duo come across a few familiar faces during lunchtime rush at The Trusty Slab restaurant. Meanwhile the Bikini Bottom residents set up a surprise birthday party for SpongeBob.

Donning his famous lifeguard attire, Hasselhoff guests as himself in the special, where he runs into a little trouble in an ocean kayak and on the beach. Hasselhoff also notably played himself in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. His return is a special nod to his original performance for fans around the world. "I experienced the world of SpongeBob first-hand when I appeared in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, which was an amazing experience," said Hasselhoff. "After making that cameo, kids around the world recognized me from the movie. How awesome to now come back to be part of the 20th anniversary special. I got to interact with Tom Kenny and SpongeBob. It also was a heartwarming tribute to Steve Hillenburg. Happy 20th SpongeBob. Hooray!!"

"Steve Hillenburg gave me the gift of a lifetime when he asked me to voice his porous alter ego, SpongeBob SquarePants." Said Kenny. "He changed my life and all of our lives. To reach the 20-year mark is a huge milestone and we wanted to celebrate by throwing a big party Bikini Bottom style. SpongeBob only comes up to the surface world on special occasions and this time one stop on his journey is The Trusty Slab restaurant. Stepping on the set and acting alongside my friends and fellow cast members was a true out of body experience. Fans are truly going to love it."
