Diving in front of the curve - sponging up the new Blood 'N' Bubble releases
WHAT NEW DIVE MOVIES AND TV SHOWS ARE COMING DOWN THE PIPE?
Being the unofficial historian of Blood "N" Bubble movies requires constantly diving into tidal wave of press releases that roll into my "in" basket every day. Latest dive TV show that will bubble up on our screens this month? A SpongeBob SquarePants underwater visit to Atantis!
According to a spokesman at Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment, SpongeBob SquarePants leads an expedition 20,000 leagues beneath the sea to discover the lost city of Atlantis! In a true Haroldo Rivera history isn't being made moment (remember his opening of Al Capone's safe ) to "celebrate the monumental underwater discovery, Nickelodeon will blow it out of the water all day long with a SpongeBob convergent online and on-air event on Monday, November 12" said the network spokesperson. "The event will culminate with the premiere of SpongeBob's "Atlantis SquarePantis" TV movie guest starring David Bowie and the "Behind the Pantis - How We Made Atlantis SquarePantis" special. I can't get Nickelodeon in Toronto, Canada, so I am going to miss seeingPatchy the Pirate (Tom Kenny) hosting his own talk-show from the bottom of the aquarium at the Atlantis Hotel in the Bahamas.
SpongeBob doesn't use scuba gearso I gues it doesn't qualify as a true Blood And Bubbles film. If anyone watches the show could they write me and let me know if SpongeBob decompresses on his way back to the surface, or does David Bowie simply squeeze the Nitrogen out of him once he is on the back of the boat.
