NICK ANIMATION PODCAST

EPISODE #39: How SpongeBob Gets His SquarePants

“Are you ready kids?! I can’t hear you!”  SpongeBob SquarePants is cartoon royalty and adored worldwide, but what goes into making our favorite sponge fresh, hysterical and a fan favorite year after year? This week supervising producers Vincent Waller and Marc Ceccarelli break it all the way down to Bikini Bottom.  The series vets provide krusty insights on how the team cracks a story, collaborates, brings visual life to the written word, and relies on the incomparable brilliance of many artists until each episode is grilled to Krabby Patty perfection.  It’s no surprise why Team Hillenburg has mined comedy gold for almost two decades, and why Patchy’s pirate chest will be filled for eons to come!

Listen on:

Big thanks to Vincent and Marc for joining us! You can follow Vincent on Instagram & Twitter!

Keep up with our intrepid host Hector on his own Twitter and Instagram pages. And stay tuned to NickAnimation25 next week for our Nick Animation Podcast Season 2 finale - an interview inside The Loud House Writers’ Room!

SOTW: The Duel

SOTWs are supposed to be for Wednesdays, “it’s still Wednesday Pacific time!” in a bind, but I did not account for one thing.

I’ve been the designated family ‘tech person’ since I was a teenager, and that was fun (my brother: why is my computer broken? me: …it’s malware from porn sites. It’s just…it’s all porn sites. I hate you for making me do this. Mom: tape this for me! me: I can…download it?), but word of advice: never, ever reveal you are good at Excel. Especially when your mom was given a crazy next day deadline and types 30 words a minute to your 80. It leads to working until literally three in the morning for free because what are you going to be like, “no, person who gave birth to me, I cannot help you.”? I WAS A DIFFICULT BIRTH. I OWE HER FOREVER.

ANYWAY, STARTED WRITING THIS AT 2:50. FORGIVE ALL ERRORS, PLEASE.

Photographic Portraits of Famous Artists’ Paint Palettes” taken by Matthias Schaller. 

from top to bottom:

Pablo Picasso/ Henri Matisse

Vincent Van Gogh

Eugene Declacroix/ Georges Seurat

Marc Chagall

Edgar Degas

Claude Monet/ Edouard Manet

This is so interesting to me because you can slightly see their personalities and painting styles through their palettes. Some insanely messy, some neatly organized with little dabs of paint. Some only used dark color schemes (Degas) and some used nature and ocean colors (Chagall). Makes me wish I could meet them all in person :)

Last night’s new episode of SpongeBob Squarepants was “Food Con Castaways.” (½)

It’s possible that I’ve said this numerous times before but this was one of my favorite episodes to work on! So much opportunity for acting and such a fun story.

Although what was particularly special to me about this episode was that our supervising executives (Marc Ceccarelli and Vincent Waller) were kind enough to allow me to play a quick little Bill & Ted-esque air guitar riff. I know I shouldn’t brag about something that’s only 2 seconds long but it’s a dream come true for me to have something I played broadcasted on my favorite childhood TV show alongside my own drawings!…I am eternally grateful for that opportunity.

Habs; National Bird

Recently, in a conversation with the inestimable SH, I realised that I did not know what Canada’s national bird was. And then, TO MY HORROR, I discovered that WE DO NOT HAVE ONE. Canadian National Geographic is attempting to rectify this with a poll. I was very excited about this information (relatedly: SH was very patient with my capslock late night Canadian bird musing, considering I think even most Canadians would be rolling their eyes at me)

ANYWAY SH ASKED ME TO WRITE ABOUT BIRBS, SO I WRITE ABOUT BIRBS. BECAUSE YOU JUST KNOW MARC, LIKE ME, WOULD GIVE TOO MANY SHITS.
