Friday, November 28, from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Friday's programming will feature a day-long marathon of SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS episodes, including SPONGEBOB: THE MOVIE at 6 p.m. and the following back-to-back premieres:
8 p.m. "The Slumber Party"/"Grooming Gary"
"The Slumber Party" -- Pearl's getting ready for her slumber party, but Mr. Krabs' meddling in the party preparations is getting out of control. Pearl forces him out of the house and orders him to stay at SpongeBob's until the party's over, so Mr. Krabs sends his #1 employee SpongeBob to be his undercover spy.
"Grooming Gary" -- SpongeBob enters Gary in a pet show, but realizes Gary needs a makeover when he sees the competition. Unfortunately Gary isn't keen on being primped and made into a pretty show snail, and it turns out the other pets in the show aren't either.
8:30 p.m. "Porous Pockets"/Sneak-Peek of THE PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR
"Porous Pockets" -- When SpongeBob suddenly becomes the richest citizen of Bikini Bottom, he finds himself surrounded by lots of new "friends" who are more than happy to help him spend his money. As SpongeBob spends more time with his new pals, he spends less time with his best buddy Patrick and jeopardizes their friendship.
Sneak-peek of THE PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR, based on DreamWorks' feature film MADAGASCAR, and will premiere on Nickelodeon in 2009.
9 p.m. "Krusty Krushers"/"The Card"
"Krusty Krushers" -- Mr. Krabs hatches up yet another get-rich-quick scheme: professional wrestling. But he won't be the one wrestling; he's going to be the manager -- and money-handler -- for the newest tag-team wrestlers in Bikini Bottom: SpongeBob and Patrick.
"The Card" -- The new Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy trading cards are on sale, and SpongeBob is determined to get the super special rare talking card. He's stunned when Patrick immediately finds the card without even trying. And to make matters worse, he doesn't treat it with the care and respect SpongeBob believes it deserves.
9:30 p.m. "Dear Vikings"/"Ditchin"
"Dear Vikings" -- There's a new Viking-themed promotion at the Krusty Krab, so SpongeBob is determined to find out everything there is to know about Vikings. Since there's no better way to find out about Vikings than to communicate with them directly, SpongeBob writes a letter to the Vikings, and is surprised when they visit the Krusty Krab to answer his questions in person.
"Ditchin" -- Mermaidman and Barnacleboy are having a book signing, but SpongeBob can't go because he has boating school. After some convincing, Patrick finally gets SpongeBob to take a bathroom break from class -- a really long one -- so they can go to the signing. But the day turns sour when SpongeBob becomes racked with guilt about ditching class.

Bikini Bottom turns upside down when SpongeBob and Patrick become gladiators in the title episode Spongicus. Plus more fun and foolishness as Squidward tries to write a music composition, Plankton starts a rock band with Patrick, Squidward and SpongeBob, Mr. Krabs becomes more obsessed with money and SpongeBob taps into his spongy-ness all on one DVD!
Release Date: Jan 27, 2009
We'll have the artwork up as soon as it's released.

Most of you already know this but "WhoBob WhatPants" will be premiering October 13. Here's a little description:
October 13 at 8:00 p.m. SpongeBob SquarePants Primetime Special "WhoBob WhatPants" (30 minute special)
In the half-hour special WhoBob WhatPants?, Bikini Bottoms most beloved sponge goes missing and his distraught friends set out to search the ocean for him. Unaware of his true identity, SpongeBob wanders into rough New Kelp City where he encounters and inadvertently defeats the leader of the ruthless Bubble Poppin Gang (voiced by Ray Liotta). Relieved and grateful that they no longer have to live in fear, the New Kelp residents appoint SpongeBob their new Mayor. Will SpongeBob remember who he really is and return to Bikini Bottom with his friends, or will he stay to enjoy his newfound celebrity in New Kelp City forever?
