DVD Review: SpongeBob SquarePants: Bikini Bottom Bash

April 28, 2020

It’s SpongeBob’s birthday and we’re all invited to the party in the 2019 special SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout, which is being released on DVD today in a new compilation entitled SpongeBob SquarePants: Bikini Bottom Bash.

The main attraction of this release is the extended episode SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout, which finds Patrick (Bill Fagerbakke) taking his buddy SpongeBob (Tom Kenny) up to the surface world on his birthday, to distract him while their friends plan his surprise party.

This fairly amusing 44 minute special aired on Nickelodeon last summer as part of the 12th season of SpongeBob SquarePants, and mixes animation and live action, with a number of surprise cameos. It was created to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the cartoon, which premiered in 1999, and is dedicated to the show’s late creator, Stephen Hillenburg.

The DVD also includes the party-themed bonus episodes SpongeBob’s House Party (Season 3), Sun Bleached (Season 6) and The Slumber Party (Season 6), as well as the 2009 special Truth or Square, which was previously released on a 2015 DVD set. It’s a decent release for SpongeBob fans, and would make a good birthday gift for kids.

SpongeBob SquarePants: Bikini Bottom Bash is a Paramount Home Media Distribution release. It’s 134 minutes and rated PG.

Street Date: April 28th, 2020
