The season aired on Nickelodeon, which is owned by Viacom, and was produced by United Plankton Pictures and Nickelodeon. The season's executive producers were series creator Stephen Hillenburg and Paul Tibbitt, who also acted as the series' showrunner.[1][2] Upon the announcement of Nickelodeon signing the new show The Mighty B! on December 12, 2006, it renewed SpongeBob SquarePants for a sixth season with 26 episodes in order, surpassing the 100-episode mark.[3][4][5][6] Cyma Zarghami, president of Nickelodeon, said "One of the great things about animation is that you can play it over and over again, and kids will still watch it [...] With live action they won't."[7] On March 3, 2008, the season premiered with the episode "Krabby Road". It was written by Luke Brookshier, Nate Cash, and Eric Shaw, while Alan Smart served as animation director.

In 2009, Nickelodeon began celebrating the tenth anniversary of the show with Square Roots: The Story of SpongeBob SquarePants, a documentary special by filmmaker Patrick Creadon, that discusses the history of the show and the ascent of the "absorbing character's journey to pop culture stardom".[8][9][10] Creator Stephen Hillenburg, speaking by phone from Southern California, said "Ten years. I never imagined working on the show to this date and this long. I really figured we might get a season and a cult following, and that might be it."[11] In an interview, Tom Kenny told that "What I'm most proud of is that kids still really like it and care about it [...] They eagerly await new episodes. People who were young children when it started 10 years ago are still watching it and digging it and think it's funny. That's the loving cup for me."[12]

Nickelodeon also broadcast a 50 ½-hour television marathon titled "The Ultimate SpongeBob SpongeBash Weekend". The marathon featured the ten most memorable episodes as picked by its viewers on Nick.com. The night capped off with the television encore of The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie at 8 PM.[13] On July 19, ten new episodes including the special episode "To SquarePants or Not to SquarePants" premiered.[14][15] Paramount Home Entertainment released a 14-disc DVD titled The First 100 Episodes on September 22, 2009.[16] The DVD runs approximately 2200 minutes and includes the first 100 episodes of the series.[17][18] A second SpongeBob SquarePants television film, titled Truth or Square, aired on Nickelodeon on November 6, 2009.[19][20] Several celebrities made live action cameo appearances on the film, including Rosario Dawson, LeBron James, Tina Fey, Will Ferrell, Craig Ferguson, Robin Williams and P!nk, while Ricky Gervais provided opening and closing narration for the film.[21][22]

The season was storyboarded by Alexander, Brookshier, Cash, Cervas, Charmatz, King, Reccardi, and Springer.[a][25][26]

CastEdit

The sixth season featured many guest celebrities, including actor Johnny Depp (left) and English singer and Spice Girls member Victoria Beckham (right), among others. The two accepted to lend their voices to the show because their children were fans.

The sixth season featured Tom Kenny as the voice of the title character SpongeBob SquarePants and his pet snail Gary. SpongeBob's best friend, a starfish named Patrick Star, was voiced by Bill Fagerbakke,[27] while Rodger Bumpass played the voice of Squidward Tentacles, an arrogant and ill-tempered squid.[28] Other members of the cast were Clancy Brown as Mr. Krabs, a miserly crab obsessed with money and SpongeBob's boss at the Krusty Krab;[29] Mr. Lawrence as Plankton, a small green copepod and Mr. Krabs' business rival;[30] Jill Talley as Karen, Plankton's sentient computer sidekick;[31] Carolyn Lawrence as Sandy Cheeks, a squirrel from Texas;[32] Mary Jo Catlett as Mrs. Puff, SpongeBob's boating school teacher;[33] and Lori Alan as Pearl, a teenage whale who is Mr. Krabs' daughter.[34][35]

In addition to the regular cast members, episodes feature guest voices from many ranges of professions, including actors, athletes, authors, musicians, and artists. For instance, in the episode "House Fancy", television personality Alton Brown guest starred as the character of Nicholas Whithers, the host and judge of a show of the same name.[36] In an interview, Brown described the work as "a blast." He said "I came up with this voice that didn't sound anything like me. I channeled this very strange person. Only three people I know figured out it was even me when they saw it."[37] Actor and musician Johnny Depp guest starred in the episode "SpongeBob SquarePants vs. The Big One" as the voice of Jack Kahuna Laguna, a surf guru that taught SpongeBob how to surf.[38][39][40] According to Sarah Noonan, vice president of talent and casting for Nickelodeon, Depp accepted the role because he and his kids were fans of the show.[41] The episode was also guest starred by musician and The Monkees' Davy Jones who starred in the episode as himself, appearing at the bottom of the sea with his locker,[42][43] and Bruce Brown providing vocal cameo as the episode's narrator.[44] Brian Doyle-Murray also reprised his role as the Flying Dutchman for the episode.[45] In "The Card", Ernest Borgnine returned, reprising his role as Mermaid Man.

I flipped at the opportunity to be in the show. I have four kids, and everybody loved SpongeBob."[37] In the entry "The Clash of Triton", English singer Victoria Beckham guest starred in the episode as the wife of King Neptune, Queen Amphitrite.[47][48] The writers created the role of a Queen Amphitrite especially for Beckham.[49][50] The former Spice Girl accepted the role because her sons, Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz, love the show,[51][52] were excited when their mother told them of the role, and looked forward to watching the episode with her.[53][54] Beckham recorded the voice-over in late-2008[49] in a day,[50][55] and claimed that she was "thrilled" to provide the vocal cameo.[56][57][58] Other guests in the episode included Seinfeld actor John O'Hurley as King Neptune and Skid Row heavy metal vocalist Sebastian Bach as the voice of Triton.[59][60][61]

The season received mixed to positive reviews from media critics. In a DVD review, Paul Mavis of DVD Talk "highly recommended" the set, saying "[The season has a shaky start], but the laughs definitely pick up on the second disc."[95] In particular, Mavis praised the episode "The Splinter" as "one of the very best SpongeBob [episodes]," while "Slide Whistle Stooges", "Boating Buddies", and "The Slumber Party" were described by Mavis as "SpongeBob season's best offerings."[95] In a separate review for the "Volume 2" DVD, Mavis only "recommended" it.[96] He said that the episodes, including "Choir Boys", "Pet or Pests", "Overbooked", "Shell Shocked", "Komputer Overload", "Chum Bucket Supreme", and "Single Cell Anniversary" are "solid entries" and "all deliver steady laughs," but has doubts that "they're on a par with series' best entries like 'The Splinter', 'Slide Whistle Stooges', 'Boating Buddies', and 'The Slumber Party'."[96]

In a DVD review for the individual episode DVD release Spongicus, Roy Hrab of DVD Verdict gave this season a negative review and said that "In my previous SpongeBob reviews I have commented that series has lost its edge. This offering does nothing to change my opinion. But what the heck do I know? Clearly, the show continues to maintain a large following and the franchise is a license to print money for Nickelodeon."[97] The DVD consists of eight episodes and praised the episodes "Not Normal" and "Gone" by describing them "the best episode on the disc" and "a decent episode", respectively.[97] Also from DVD Verdict, Gordon Sullivan, on the DVD release To SquarePants or Not to SquarePants, said that "[it is] a solid collection of SpongeBob SquarePants episodes."[98] He added that "My only serious problem with this set is that it's only eight episodes long; a more complete season-style release would be more efficient. On the technical front everything is fine, with the bright, solid colors of Bikini Bottom shining through clearly and all the dialogue and effects clear and detailed."[98] Sullivan gave the episodes "The Splinter", "Slide Whistle Stooges", and "The Krabby Kronicle" an 8/10 rating, while "Boating Buddies" received the lowest rating with 3/10.[98]
