It's called "SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom" and yes, it is stop-motion. I can't wait to see it. :D


Nickelodeon is scaring up a new adventure for SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends with the stop-motion animated special “SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom,” which will air on the network in October.
The special finds SpongeBob and company donning costumes and decorating their neighborhood for some Halloween fun, but the spooky Flying Dutchman (voiced by Brian Doyle Murray) has other plans.
The special, produced at stop-motion animation company Screen Novelties in Los Angeles, aims to evoke the style of such classic Rankin/Bass holiday specials as “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Mad Monster Party.”
The special will feature an original song by voice actor Mr. Lawrence, who plays Plankton in the series, with music by Eban Schletter.
“The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom” production uses 27 sets that feature such items as 15 boxes of breakfast cereal to create Bikini Bottom’s coral reefs, eight pounds of glitter to decorate SpongeBob’s pineapple house, and hundreds of Popsicle sticks to make up the planks of a scary roller coaster track.
The special was written by Mr. Lawrence with Brian Morante serving as storyboard director. Screen Novelties’ Mark Caballero and Seamus Walsh are directing with Chris Finnegan producing. Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller are the supervising producers on “SpongeBob SquarePants.”
“The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom” is the second stop-motion collaboration between Nickelodeon and Screen Novelties. They partnered in 2012 on “SpongeBob SquarePants: It’s a SpongeBob Christmas!”
In addition to Mr. Lawrence, “SpongeBob SquarePants” features the voice talents of Tom Kenny as SpongeBob, Bill Fagerbakke as his friend Patrick Star, Rodger Bumpass as SpongeBob’s neighbor Squidward, Clancy Brown as Spongebob’s greedy boss Mr. Krabs, and Carolyn Lawrence as rodent aquanaut Sandy Cheeks.

they shoulda kept the name "Stop-Motion Halloween Special"


Jokes aside, I am definitely excited for this episode! I loved the first stop-motion episode, and I'm hoping this episode will be just as good, if not, better.

Ooh, that sounds awesome! It's too bad that nobody really watches Spongebob in my family anymore, or that I don't have my dorm room to watch it in now. I will find a way...

This will be the greatest thing ever. It's about time we get another Halloween episode. Scaredy Pants is a classic, I really love that one! I think it's great having a Stop-Motion Halloween Special! I'm not too fond of It's a SpongeBob Christmas! (I think it's not that original in terms of entertainment), so I'm hoping this'll be much better. Especially since you expect a Stop Motion Christmas special, but never a Stop Motion Halloween Special. I wonder if this'll end up airing on CBS, like It's a SpongeBob Christmas! did.

Yes, just another reason to be hyped for the new season. :) Judging from those leaked titles, I has high hopes for season 11 as long as they're good. Plus with Mr Lawrence writing it, I except it to be as amazing as the stop motion Christmas special. Also it's great to see The Flying Dutchman again. We hadn't seen him since season 8 and it was a tradition to had him appear at least once per season

Yes! Yes! Bring me to excessively (or however it's spelled)!

SpongeBob quotes aside I'm really excited, but like Honest said that title is like Legends of BB like Patty Caper and The Great Patty Caper. Well, hyped!

I'm very excited for this. The last stop-motion special was amazing, so I can't wait to see how this is handled with the new writing staff.
