SpongeBob SquareCar! Check out the cartoon's new wheels
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea — and may be coming to a city near you, via this tricked-out Toyota Highlander?
It’s SpongeBob SquarePants, of course. The ocean dweller’s very own “concept vehicle” will make its worldwide debut tomorrow, July 13, during Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob Day at San Diego’s Giants v. Padres game. After that, it’s set to make stops at seven different — bringing a special, yellow brand of F-U-N all across the U.S.
Each event will feature giveaways, airbrush tattoos, and character meet-and-greets that won’t even require scuba suits. The first-ever SpongeBob Shellebration in Hollywood will be of particular interest to fans — this two-day event will include a live read-through of an episode featuring the series’ entire voice cast, an exhibition of fan art, a screening of the winning shorts from the first SpongeBob SquareShorts: Original Fan Tributes contest, and a live musical performance by SpongeBob voice Tom Kenny and the Hi Seas.
