The documentary was great, IMO. It comes on Nick at Nite later, on the 23rd of July at 10pm. I don't know if I need to spoiler tag this, but...
[SPOIL]Or at least more interesting than I expected. I liked how they mentioned how risky and outrageous it was to do a show about a talking sponge. (Not really surprising, but... yeah.) I think one or the workers said that when they first heard of the idea, they thought the people who thought of it were crazy. Which is not unlike what some haters think about the idea. -__- Interesting, though. And I only did that face because what I mentioned was kinda ironic.
I liked how they showed the workers of the show and all the people involved watching the pilot episode, "Help Wanted."
They showed the voice actors for Mermaidman and Barnacleboy, and they even showed SpongeBob's Grandmother's voice actor. The creator of the series, Stephen Hillenburg, mentioned that Plankton had a little guy but the voice of a man, a really strong voice. (I wonder if he knows that in the Japanese version of SpongeBob plankton has a higher pitched voice that fits his size. -__-)
They mentioned the "SpongeBob gay" controversy as well. That was funny how they introduced it, I think. After mentioning that SpongeBob was "accused" of being gay, they showed a scene from one episode of SpongeBob gasping and another scene with Sandy pointing at him and going, "Aha!"
I forgot who it was who became the executive producer of the show, but I think it was one of Stephen Hillenburg's best/favorite writers of the show. At least it wasn't random how production of newer episodes was led. But they talked about Hillenburg's stepping down near the end of the documentary and just mentioned that the show still remained popular. Ren and Stimpy
and Rocko's Modern Life
were mentioned. Ideas that didn't end up being used in Rocko's Modern Life
were saved for SpongeBob
Some actor's favorite episode is the cursing one, "Sailor Mouth."
By the way, during the "gay" thing, they showed a clip of a comedy act of Whoopie Golberg, and when she cursed they did the dolphin chirps thing. XD
Also, apparently SpongeBob
is even popular in prision...
One worker (a writer, maybe?) said that SpongeBob
may last/go on for twenty seasons (if it's popular enough, of course). Yaaaaaaaaaaaay wait a minute... Please... no... no offense... but no...
And one of the writers (or other type of worker) mentioned that the characters were "milkable." Okay, he didn't say that, but he did say "milk" or "milking" or something. What he said was the same idea.[/SPOIL]
that Sponge has to die ._. I hate him!
The show is just annoying as hell >_>
how can people watch those kind of things >_>
Don't know what you watched of it, but the style was different
Hopefully, spongebob just will throw a big party for its b-day, and then continue to make episodes
Yeah, it will.
They said in the documentary that SpongeBob
won't be going anywhere anytime soon. (Rats.) What am I going to do after the special in November, I wonder...? I didn't really like the episodes that came after the movie, but I was waiting for the series to reach its ten year anniversary. Now that it's pretty much here... how much longer will SpongeBob
