It’s almost time for the zaniest dimensional rift in the history of Bikini Bottom to hit, as Nickelodeon prepares to premiere SpongeBob SquarePants Presents The Tidal Zone on Friday, January 13 at 7 p.m. (ET/PT).
To help fans get ready to witness the madness of the first-ever SpongeBob Universe crossover special, Animation Magazine is thrilled to the gills to debut an exclusive clip from one of the hour-long special’s reality-bending tales.
In this clip from the episode “Welcome to Binary Bottom,” we pay a visit to The Grease Bucket, where we find robotic versions of Squidward (Rodger Bumpass), Gary, Plankton (Mr. Lawrence) and, of course, SpongeBob (Tom Kenny), inhabiting a world of circuits and wires. In this switcheroo’d dimension, we also encounter one character with a new, organic look: Fish Karen (Jill Talley)!
After the premiere The Tidal Zone will encore on Saturday, Jan. 14 and Sunday, Jan. 15 at 7 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon, followed by a rollout across Nickelodeon’s international channels next year.
