New York, New York – July 2, 2012 – SpongeBob’s hilarious escapades and nautical adventures continue with the premiere of four brand-new episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants on Saturday, July 21, at 8:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon.  “The Super Spongy Square Games” one-hour television event includes “Extreme Spots,” starring celebrity voiceover guest Johnny Knoxville (MTV’s Jackass) as Johnny Krill, “Squirrel Record,” “Demolition Doofus” and “Face Freeze.”  Viewers can satisfy their SpongeBob SquarePants appetites by tuning into the 12-hour marathon beginning at 9:00 a.m. (ET/PT).
During “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.”
Viewers can logon to to play all new games including a brand new Olympic-Themed, Tournament Style ClubHouse, “Bikini Bottom Games.”  Quizzes, photos, videos, and additional content will provide users with a complete interactive experience.  The full “Extreme Spots” episode will be available on iTunes the day following the premiere.
