But after finding out that Sandy is considering leaving Bikini Bottom and returning to the surface, Patrick comes up with a brilliant idea. “Let’s get some Texas, and bring it down here!” he says, and SpongeBob is all for it, replying with, “That’s it! Patrick, your genius is showing!” The big pink starfish appears to mishear SpongeBob, quickly covering his crotch. “Where?” he replies nervously. As far as the kids are concerned, that’s just Patrick being silly old Patrick, but we all know that he heard a “p” instead of a “g.”
The season two episode “Gary Takes a Bath” contains a joke that’s been done to death in shows made for adults, but it’s not one that regularly pops up in kids TV and for obvious reasons. The episode puts SpongeBob in a position that most pet owners can sympathize with. It’s bath time in the pineapple under the sea, but Gary doesn’t want to play ball. SpongeBob tries every trick in the book to get his meowing snail into the tub, even offering up a “crisp dollar bill for the next fella to take a bath in this house.” That backfires when the avaricious Mr. Krabs shows up and claims the prize.
Meami Maszewski and Stephen C. Kallas played security guards and Dorian O’Brien was Gary. Karen the Computer was played by Caitlin Ort (tours of ELF and A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS) and Helen Regula (ELF national tour) was the mayor of BB in a great red coat. Ms. Regula is the understudy for the role of Patrck. Mrs. Puff, the teacher who was sorely underused, was played by Natalie L. Chapman, an Ohio University graduate, in a memorable outfit. Mr. O’ Brien returned as Larry the Lobster, Ms. Maszewski (who played Medda Larkin in UFOMT’s NEWSIES) played the fun role of Pearl the whale, and Mr. Kallas played the spry Old Man Jenkins. Richie Dupkin was Perch Perkins in his national tour debut, Kenneth Ferrone was the voice of the French Narrator, and Ryan Blihovde, a lifelong SpongeBob fan who was in the national tour of THE SOUND OF MUSIC, is double credited as the Foley Fish. Joshua Bess (RENT 20th Anniversary Tour as Roger,) Stefan Miller (national tour of RUDOLPH THE RED NOSED REINDEER,) and Miles Davis Tillman were the sure-footed skateboard riders in the band The Electric Skates. In the ensemble, portraying a vast array of undersea creatures, were Sydney Simone, Ayanna Strutz, and Rico Velazquez.
David Zinn (FUN HOME, THE LAST SHIP) was in charge of both the scenic and costume design; the former was fanciful and bright and the latter were thankfully not literal, but creative and colorful nonetheless. The lighting design by Kevin Adams (THE CHER SHOW, HEDWIG) was a wonder to behold, and made the performance even more special for me. The big projections designed by Peter Nigrini (DEAR EVAN HANSEN) worked well with the props and scenery to seal the deal, especially to suggest Mount Humongous. Walter Trarbach was in charge of the sound design, with Mike Dobson taking care of the frequently-heard Foley design. The fanciful wigs and hair design was done by Charles G. Lapointe, with make up design by Joe Dulude II (WICKED.)
Since the posting was made, the Facebook comments from the video have been flooded with people who dispute the claim that the green and bearded fish is the true Old Man Jenkins on SpongeBob SquarePants. Instead, many are pointing to the toothless and short green dude-fish with the glasses, who was featured very early on in the series. Others have also made a case for the brown-colored Old Man Jenkins to be the O.G. version, as he has the most consecutive appearances with a consistent look between episodes.
Have you ever wondered: Who is the REAL Old Man Jenkins? .
We’ve got some ideas for some SpongeBob spinoffs. Mr. Nick el Odeon, hit me up:
“Nick is commemorating the 20th anniversary with the “Best Year Ever,” a tribute that includes an original one-hour special, “SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout,” premiering Friday, July 12. Additionally, plans are in place to expand the SpongeBob SquarePants universe with spinoffs focused on the core characters into formats such as new series, specials and feature-length movies. The anniversary will culminate with the May 22, 2020 release of the new SpongeBob theatrical, It’s A Wonderful Sponge, from Paramount Pictures, Paramount Players’ and Nickelodeon Movies.”
In the episode “Dunces And Dragons” SpongeBob and Patrick attend Medieval Moments Stadium to watch a jousting tournament. They are greeted by the less than enthusiastic host dressed in medieval garb and holding a sword.
SpongeBob gets on the edge of his seat with his eyes bulging, clearly glued to the television. At least until the moment, Gary enters the room and he claims he was just looking for the sport’s channel. It doesn’t take a grownup to realize that what he was watching wouldn’t be found on ESPN.
