  • The greatest documentary that I have ever seen.

    I don't usually watch documentaries but since I am a die hard SpongeBob fan, I wanted to watch it which aired on Nick@Nite. I thought it was great when they were showing how they make the storyboards for "SpongeBob SquarePants" and how the cast do their voicing. It was cool to see that there were some celebrities talking about SpongeBob such as Rosario Dawson, Whoopi Goldberg, David Hasselhoff, and a few more. The cast was also discussing about how everyone thinks that SpongeBob and Patrick are gay they see it but they need to stop showing SpongeBob being gay in the episodes and I hope it stops. It is amazing how everyone around the world show all of their dedication to SpongeBob. SpongeBob is such a wildly popular cartoon and I was extremely amazed when I saw all of that such as the prisoners singing the Spongebob theme song, and people getting tattoos of SpongeBob. Ernest Borgnine looks exactly like MermaidMan and I was amazed and I can see why they picked him as MermaidMan. First of all, Ernest Borgnine has been an actor for a long long long time. Second of all, Ernest Borgnine does the voice of MermaidMan because he knows that SpongeBob is the most honoring, most popular cartoon of all time. I really hope that SpongeBob lasts for a long long long time and if he ever got canceled... I would be crushed (literally). Congratulations to everyone's work on the documentary. Overall, the best documentary that I have ever seen. 10/10moreless

    I got to say, this documentary was awesome! It really it a fantastic job covering SpongeBob's history from its beginning to pop culture icon status. One of the things I was really glad about this documentary is that we finally get to hear from Stephen Hillenburg ever since his departure after The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (and those rumors of him leaving are sadly confirmed). I also liked how they weren't afraid to cover SpongeBob's gay controversy, since I know it was a big issue that starting arising during the show's peak. However, I was a little suprised that the show's cast, crew, and analysts somewhat supported it, but okay. Anyway, this special featured a lot of intriguing facts and never-before-seen backstage home videos that made this even more of a "special." I thought it was really funny how the prison guard at San Quentin has the inmates sing the theme song, or the child who went down the sewers to watch SpongeBob, or the Burger King balloon heist (I remember hearing about that during the time). It was also groundbreaking how we got to see celebrities' opinions of the show like LeBron James, Craig Ferguson, Alec Baldwin (etc) and other enthusiasts such as the CEO of DreamWorks Animation. Also, we gotta love the fact that SpongeBob SquarePants is President Barack Obama's favorite TV character! And wow, I thought I had too much SB merchandise, check out that woman with all those SB tattoos whose room is loaded with SB things! I have never felt prouder to call myself a SpongeBob fan and happy 10th anniversary (and 25th birthday) little yellow guy who's endlessly soaking up popularity around the world!moreless
  • One of the best documentaries I've ever seen (although others are dull and boring).

    From this, I learned a lot about Spongebob that I've never knew. I didn't know Stephen Hillenburg quit and put Paul Tibbitt in charge until I first saw this. It wasn't quite what I thought it would be, but it was still the best it could be (especially for a documentary like this). I liked how they interveiwed the cast and crew and also let some celebrities give their positive opinions about Spongebob and his friends. I also liked how they arranged the events.



    Overall, I thought this was great for a documentary.

    I think it best deserves an A+. Best it could be.moreless
