3 pieces of trivia to fish out from the series
1) SpongeBob's path to becoming a fry cook
In the very first episode of the original SpongeBob SquarePants series, SpongeBob interviewed to be a fry cook at the Krusty Krab and he dazzled everyone by whipping up Krabby Patties at lightning speed. Was the lovable yellow sponge always a natural cook? What was the very first dish he cooked? 10-year-old SpongeBob reveals all in Kamp Koral.
2) Grumpy Squidward's origin story
“You find out how Squidward got to be so depressed, frustrated and underappreciated,” said the character's voice actor Rodger Bumpass in a previous interview. “They all start fairly child-like and naïve and enthusiastic. Then in Squidward’s case, he gets knocked down sequentially until he develops into that sourpuss that we know so well." Follow Squidward’s evolution as he plays counselor to SpongeBob and friends!
3) The inspiration behind Plankton's Chum Bucket
Everyone knows and loves Krabby Patties, the Krusty Krab's signature menu item, but who gave Plankton the idea to serve chum right across the street at the Chum Bucket? You'll have to watch and find out!
