Nickelodeon is planning a special SpongeBob SquarePants marathon for Saturday July 21. The all-new “Super Spongy Square Games” one-hour event will include the episode “Extreme Spots,” which features Johnny Knoxville as Johnny Krill, as well as the three other outings “Squirrel Record,” “Demolition Doofus” and “Face Freeze.” The new shows will begin at 8 p.m. The cabler will also offer a 12-hour marathon of older episodes beginning at 9 a.m. that Saturday.

In “Extreme Spots,” Knoxville lends his voice for Johnny Krill, a member of The Drasticals extreme sports team. When The Drasticals come to town, their new super fans, SpongeBob and Patrick, try to do whatever it takes to join them, no matter how extreme—or dangerous. Whether attempting sand motor biking, hang gliding, seashell surfing or extreme bubble blowing, SpongeBob and Patrick undertake the challenge in an effort to demonstrate they’re extreme.

Next in “Squirrel Record,” Sandy is determined to break a record number of world records, in record time, so SpongeBob joins her for an action-packed weekend of dangerous record setting! World’s longest tooth, spiciest chili gargle and most chainsaws juggled are among the records Sandy is aiming to beat.

In “Demolition Doofus,” Mrs. Puff enters SpongeBob into the Demolition Derby, where his bad driving makes him a star, and SpongeBob and Patrick bet who can hold a “funny face” the longest—until their faces freeze that way during “Face Freeze.”
