It will be all SpongeBob all the time on Thursday, Nov. 9 as Nickelodeon kicks off its 24-hour SpongeBob SquarePants “Best Day Ever” marathon. Starting at 8 p.m., the event will count down the best 100 episodes of the series as voted by viewers on Nick.com and Turbo Nick. The marathon will lead up to the premiere of the new SpongeBob cartoon, “Best Day Ever,” which airs at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 10.
‘Best Day Ever’ is the 76th SpongeBob episode. In the installment, our yellow hero has his best day ever, until his friends are not having a good day.

SpongeBob SquarePants launched on Nickelodeon in the U.S. in 1999 and has become an international phenomenon and the most successful property in Nickelodeon’s 26-year history. According to the network, nearly 53.7 million U.S. viewers tune in to catch the wacky antics of the absorbent one and his silly Bikini Bottom neighbors each month. The show is also a worldwide sensation. It most recently made its way to China where it quickly became the nation’s No. 1 cartoon series.
