The Bikini Atoll island in the new intro looks awfully similar to "We Gotta Get SpongeBob Back".

I think it looks fine, I don't like it that much, but it's fine. I think the reason why it's in CGI is because it would be a lot of work to go to Bikini Atoll just to shoot 2 seconds of video, and I don't think it's safe in the area because of all the nuclear radiation.

I thought it was just a miniature replica of an island.

Yeah, it's just a little prop that was filmed in a bath tub. It'd probably be cheaper to re-film it than to get a CG model.

It's not as bad as everyone is making it out to be.

Are they trying to lower down the budget? After all, CGI effects are way more common in animation nowadays.
I'm guessing that they initially wanted to re-film it but they couldn't find the original island prop, and due to time they had to try to replicate it digitally. Honestly I don't think it would've costed much more to film a small prop in a swimming pool (or was it a bath tub?).
