    • The Explosion: N/A
      As mentioned, Stephen Hillenburg said that the creatures of Bikini Bottom were affected by radiation from nuclear tests. In 1946, extensive atomic bomb testing by the US occurred in and around a small island in the PACIFIC known as Bikini Atoll (which is where the got the name for the swimsuits from). The explosion actually shown here is from the H-Bomb tests of the 1950s (I have seen it on the History Channel in a program related to this subject, along with numerous other places), which rules out it being from World War II, which lasted from 1939-5 (and the only A-Bombs in that war were used at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the films of those bombings look nothing like the explosion seen in Dying For Pie.
