SpongeBob’s pal Patrick has found his porpoise, or, rather, purpose. Everyone’s favorite starfish will headline Nickelodeon’s upcoming second SpongeBob SquarePants spin-off, The Patrick Star Show. The show is a family sitcom starring a young Patrick Star – voiced, as always, by Bill Fagerbakke — and the rest of his family, who are constantly disrupted by Patrick’s wacky whims and outlandish imagination as he hosts his own variety show for the neighborhood from his television-turned-bedroom. The Patrick Star Show will debut in July and season one will consist of 13 episodes. Nickelodeon has released a new sneak-peek trailer.
Viewers can expect to see and hear longtime SpongeBob regulars Tom Kenny (as SpongeBob), Rodger Bumpass (as Squidward), Carolyn Lawrence (as Sandy), Clancy Brown (as Mr. Krabs), and Mr. Lawrence (as Plankton). Among the newcomers are Tom Wilson – better known as the hiss-worthy Biff Tannen from the Back to the Future film trilogy — as Cecil Star, Patrick’s fun-loving, family-first dad; Cree Summer (Susie Carmichael from Rugrats and the just-launched Rugrats reboot) as Bunny Star, Patrick’s loving, sweetly oddball mom, AND also as Grandma Tentacles, Squidward’s grandmother; Jill Talley (who voices Karen, the sentient computer, on SpongeBob) as Squidina, Patrick’s 8-year-old sister, who drinks coffee from a sippy cup; and Dana Snyder (The Penguins of Madagascar) as GrandPat, Patrick’s super-smart grandpa.The SpongeBob phenomenon is amazing and unending. The original show debuted in July of 1999, and it has spawned movies, specials, a Broadway play, computer games, and countless other products, from hoodies and clocks to jewelry to face masks. The most recent offshoot is Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, a family-friendly prequel that debuted in March on Paramount+.The Patrick Star Show will be available on Nickelodeon.
