The character-driven cartoon chronicles the nautical and sometimes nonsensical adventures of SpongeBob, an incurably optimist and earnest sea sponge, and his undersea friends. Since its launch in July 1999, SpongeBob SquarePants has emerged as a pop culture phenomenon. The series has been the most-watched animated program with kids 2-11 for more than 14 consecutive years, and over the past several years, it has averaged more than 100,000,000 total viewers every quarter across all Nickelodeon networks. As the most widely distributed property in Viacom history, SpongeBob is seen in over 185 countries and translated in more than 50 languages. The Paramount Pictures feature film The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, which landed at #1 opening weekend and to date has grossed almost $300MM worldwide.
Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants airs on Ritter Communications West Tennessee channel 34 (606 HD) Monday through Friday at 6 a.m. and from 2 to 4 p.m. CT and on Saturdays at 8 a.m. CT. To view what channel Nickelodeon is on for other areas, click here.
