Nickelodeon announces Spongebob Squarepants’ TV channel

Nickelodeon has announced that kids cartoon show Spongebob Squarepants will have its own pop-up TV channel on Foxtel for the September school holidays.

The announcement:

To celebrate the September school holidays, SpongeBob SquarePants will be popping-up on Foxtel with his very own dedicated channel from Thursday, 17 September to Tuesday, October 6.

Kids and big kids at heart are invited to hang out with SpongeBob and his friends from Bikini Bottom, absorbing all the nautical nonsense from the laugh-out-loud, globally-acclaimed series as part of a 20-day mega marathon featuring 480 hours of nautical nonsense. Are ya’ ready?!

Sharing is caring, which is why SpongeBob has opted to sharing his screen time with two talented young Aussies, Ash Magic, an 18-year-old magician from Sydney, and Morgan Hipworth, a 19-year-old culinary mastermind from Melbourne.

While Ash dazzles with his magic tricks that will see everyone’s favourite yellow sponge ‘pop-up’ in some unusual places, Morgan will tantalise tastebuds with his delicious SpongeBob inspired dishes sure to delight young and old.

SpongeBob SquarePants will pop-up on Foxtel (#700) from Thursday, 17 September to Tuesday, 6 October.
