Are you ready, kids?! San Diego Comic-Con is virtual this year, but that's not stopping Nickelodeon's party at the Con. Usually a big presence on the exhibition floor — last year the network built the Krusty Crab from SpongeBob SquarePants for the show's 20th anniversary — they're taking all the announcements and fun online to celebrate Comic-Con@Home.
In particular, Nick is sharing more information about their new, upcoming SpongeBob spin-off series, Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years. The CG-animated prequel series features a much younger, porous SquarePants attending summer camp, Kamp Koral. It's there he meets Patrick and Squidward for the first time, and "spends the summer building underwater campfires, catching wild jellyfish, and swimming in Lake Yuckymuck."
The premiere date for the new series is still unannounced, but Nick is giving Bikini Bottom fans a chance to win one of eight exclusive 2020 San Diego Comic-Con Kamp Koral patches, featuring SpongeBob, Patrick, Sandy, Mr. Krabs, Squidward, Gary, Plankton, and Kamp Koral.
SYFY WIRE has the first exclusive look at these beauties:
Look at that tiny Patrick! And baby Gary! And Squidward... looks the same. (We always knew he was an adult from the time he escaped the egg.)
How can you get your potential tentacles on this sweet swag? On Wednesday, July 22, the Comic-Con@Home Online Exhibit Hall will go live, then you can click on Nickelodeon in the exhibitors list for how to enter to win these, and a whole bunch of other Nick swag, throughout the four days of the virtual con.
There might also be more news about the upcoming 13-episode first season of Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years, voiced by original the cast including Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants), Bill Fagerbakke (Patrick Star), Rodger Bumpass (Squidward), Clancy Brown (Mr. Krabs), Carolyn Lawrence (Sandy Cheeks), and Mr. Lawrence (Plankton).
Additionally, Carlos Alazraqui (The Casagrandes) and Kate Higgins (Blaze and the Monster Machines) will join the cast as new characters Nobby and Narlene, narwhal siblings who live in the woods surrounding the camp.
While you wait for Kamp to be in session, be sure to check out our "20 Years, 20 Questions" celebration with the cast from last year:
