Nickelodeon is on a roll with their DVD releases today! It may be too early for Halloween, but it’s never too early for a good scare with some musical accompaniment! In GHOULS FOOLS, SpongeBob and his starfish friend, Patrick, find an old houseboat that just happens to be haunted by a very angry ghost called Lord Poltergeist. Lord Poltergeist steals their souls and won’t let them go until they buy him a new headgasket. What’s a headgasket? Well, you’ll have to watch to find out!
The DVD has more than just the double-length episode. The extra game features let you go on a virtual treasure hunt, learn how to tie knots used at sea and haunt the Seven Seas by getting aboard the Flying Dutchman.
You can find SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS: GHOULS FOOLS in stores tomorrow!
Fun Facts about SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS
- GHOULS FOOLS marks the first Halloween-themed episode in 10 years.
- Steve Hillenburg, SpongeBob’s creator, was a marine biologist, a science teacher and once worked as a fry cook at a seafood restaurant.
- Squidward is an octupus and should have eight legs, but only has six legs because animators decided that eight would look too clustered and weird.
- The super-secret Krabby Patties might be veggie burgers.
- SpongeBob lives in a pineapple because smells are important to sea sponges, so Hillenburg thought that he might like the scent of a pineapple.
