SpongeBob Takes Over the Super Bowl
Super Bowl LVIII Live from Bikini Bottom was a special broadcast of the game aired on Nickelodeon that featured
SpongeBob SquarePants (Tom Kenny) and Patrick Star (Bill Fagerbakke) joining the new Nickelodeon booth alongside CBS Sports analyst Nate Burleson and play-by-play announcer Noah Eagle to help call the game. They were also joined by Sandy Cheeks (Carolyn Lawrence), making her sideline reporting debut, and Larry the Lobster (Mr. Lawrence) providing more live commentary.
Dora the Explorer (Diana Zerme?o) and Boots (Asher Colton Spence) on hand to help explaining penalty calls, and NFL Slimetime‘s Young Dylan and Dylan Schefter also reported live from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, NV during the game. Things started out with a new version of the now famous “Sweet Victory” performance scene from the classic “Band Geeks” episode too, and was only the first of many wacky surprises that fans were treated to during the game.
