Nickelodeon Confirms that Two 'SpongeBob' Episodes Have Been Pulled Over Storyline Concerns

"I guess you're gonna miss the panty raid."

As previously reported, the SpongeBob SquarePants episode "Mid-Life Crustacean" is "out of rotation" and is not available to stream on Paramount+ or purchase digitally on services like Amazon. Another SpongeBob episode, "Kwarantined Krab," also appears to have been shelved due to plotline similarities to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The season 3 episode, "Mid-Life Crustacean," first aired on Nickelodeon in 2003 and features Mr. Krabs in a mid-life crisis. SpongeBob and Patrick help out by showing Mr. Krabs a good time.

A representative from Nickelodeon told IGN, "'Mid-Life Crustacean' has been out of rotation since 2018, following a standards review in which we determined some story elements were not kid-appropriate." When asked which scenes caused the controversy, and if Nickelodeon ever considered a content warning in front of the episode instead of removing it completely, a rep for Nickelodeon said, "No comment."

The scene that may have led to the episode's removal could be the scene where Patrick suggests a "panty raid," which leads to SpongeBob, Patrick, and Mr. Krabs breaking into a woman's house to steal her underwear. It turns out the house they broke into was Mr. Krabs' mom's house. The mom catches the three in the act and sends Mr. Krabs to his childhood room for the rest of the night.

Two SpongeBob episodes are usually paired up with one another to fill out a traditional 30-minute television slot. This episode's companion episode, "The Great Snail Race," remains available to stream on Paramount+.

Both "Snail Race" and "Mid-Life" are unavailable to purchase digitally on Amazon. However, Amazon Prime in the USA currently has both episodes unchanged and available to stream for all subscribers, and "Mid-Life Crustacean" is available as a "Season Only" purchase on iTunes in the SpongeBob collection "From the Beginning, Part 2," which is being sold for $45.99 in the US.

Update (4/2) - A fan has created a petition asking Nickelodeon to reinstate "Mid-Life Crustacean".

IGN has also acquired a DVD box set for SpongeBob: The First 100 Episodes. "Mid-Life Crustacean" is available in full on the DVD set, which has a 2020 copyright on it. Nickelodeon again said, "No comment," when asked if the episode will be removed from digital outlets or future DVDs. Also, a clip from "Mid-Life Crustacean" remains on Nickelodeon Australia & New Zealand's website, though it is not the "panty raid" scene.

Another episode of SpongeBob from the ongoing season 12, "Kwarantined Krab," will not air due to its "virus storyline."

"The 'Kwarantined Crab' [sic] centers on a virus storyline, so we have decided to not air it due to sensitivities surrounding the global, real-world pandemic," a representative from Nickelodeon said in a statement to IGN.

In a separate statement to The New York Times, David Bittler, a press executive for Nickelodeon said the episode "was never put on the schedule to be sensitive to the pandemic outbreak last year."

However, the episode is currently circulating online in English, which means the episode has seemingly been released at some point. Clips from the episode are also available on YouTube in Spanish. Nickelodeon did not comment when asked when and where the episode has aired, although the episode is known to have aired in a number of countries, including in France, Israel and Canada.

Update (4/11) - Nickelodeon Latin America premiered the new SpongeBob episode "Kwarantined Krab" on Saturday, April 11:

"Kwarantined Krab" features the return of the Health Inspector to the Krusty Krab. The inspector finds a case of "Clam Flu" in the restaurant and quarantines all patrons inside. The characters immediately begin distrusting each other, and anybody assumed to have the virus is shunned and thrown in the freezer. It's not clear if the episode will be released in future.

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run has just been released in America. It's available to stream on Paramount+ or as a $19.99 rental on digital services. The first ever SpongeBob SquarePants spin-off, Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years is also available to stream on Paramount+, and will air on Nickelodeon later this year.

Watch SpongeBob SquarePants on Nickelodeon and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run & Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years on Paramount+!

Nickelodeon on the Verge of Renewing 'SpongeBob SquarePants' for Season 14

Nickelodeon is on the cusp of ordering a 14th season of the networks hit original animated series SpongeBob SquarePants!

Although SpongeBob has yet to be formally renewed for season 14, when asked whether the new season would be greenlit by Nickelodeon, Vincent Waller, who serves as a co-executive producer on the series, revealed in a tweet it "[l]ooks like it, I'll let you know when the order is announced".

The news comes as Nickelodeon is expanding the SpongeBob Universe. Paramount+ recently debuted Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years, the first spin-off from SpongeBob, as well as the franchise's third movie, Sponge on the Run. Kamp Koral will also air on Nickelodeon in September, as season two swims onto Paramount Plus. Nickelodeon treated fans to a sneak peek of Kamp Koral, which serves as a prequel series to SpongeBob, in which it scored Nickelodeon the top telecast of 2021 to date with Kids 2-11 on ad supported TV.

Nickelodeon is also slated to bow The Patrick Star Show, a new spin-off following a young adult version of SpongeBob's BFF, Patrick Star this summer. All three shows are produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studio in Burbank, California.

Nickelodeon President Brian Robbins also recently revealed that more spin-offs are in the works.

“It really is like a mini-Marvel Universe,” said Robbins, who was named head of Nickelodeon in 2018.

Since its launch July 17, 1999, SpongeBob SquarePants has reigned as the number-one animated series on TV for the last 18 years, while generating a universe of beloved characters, pop culture catchphrases and memes, theatrical releases, consumer products, a Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical and a global fan base.  SpongeBob SquarePants is the most widely distributed property in ViacomCBS Networks International history, seen in more than 170 countries and territories, translated in 30+ languages, and averaging more than 100 million total viewers every month. SpongeBob SquarePants was created by Stephen Hillenburg and produced by Nickelodeon in Burbank. The character-driven cartoon chronicles the nautical and sometimes nonsensical adventures of SpongeBob, an incurable optimist and earnest sea sponge, and his undersea friends.

JoJo Siwa Delivers Inspiring Message to LGBTQ+ Kids During 32nd annual GLAAD Media Awards

JoJo Siwa had some incredibly inspiring words for young LGBTQ+ kids who are growing up and still figuring out who they are!

During the 32nd annual GLAAD Media Awards on Thursday, April 8, the 17-year-old dancer and Nickelodeon star (who recently labeled herself as pansexual after coming out as part of the LGBTQ+ community earlier this year), presented the Outstanding Children’s Programming award to HBO Max's The Not-Too-Late Show With Elmo, and during her appearance, she had a special message for all the kids out there about how, at the end of the day, love is love — no matter who you are.

"If you want to fall in love with a girl, if you want to fall in love with a boy, if you want to fall in love with somebody who is a they, them or who is non-binary, that is incredible," she said. "Love is awesome. You can be in love with whoever you want to be in love with, and it should be celebrated."

The social media phenomenon also gave her girlfriend Kylie a special, and super cute, shoutout.

"I have the best, most amazing, wonderful girlfriend in the entire world who makes me so, so, so happy," JoJo added. "That is all that matters."

The kids are doing alright!

Nickelodeon's The Loud House was nominated in the "Outstanding Kids & Family Programming" category of the annual awards, which recognizes and honors media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and the issues that affect their lives. The series ultimately lost out to Australian drama First Day (Hulu) and Netflix animated series She-Ra & The Princesses of Power (Netflix). However, the fact that we're at the stage where there is a category honoring LGBTQ kids content, there are no losers here, only winners.

Watch JoJo's full message during her appearance at the GLAAD Media Awards in the video below. For more information about the 32nd annual GLAAD Media Awards, including a list of winners, visit

Gold Dino Fury Ranger Cast Reveal 🥇 BRAND NEW 🦖 Power Rangers Dino Fury ⚡ Power Rangers Kids

Gold Dino Fury Ranger Cast Reveal 🥇 BRAND NEW 🦖 Power Rangers Dino Fury ⚡ Power Rangers Kids

Join the cast of brand new series Power Rangers Dino Fury as they reveal some exciting news about the latest Ranger, Aiyon the Gold Ranger (Jordon Fite)!!!

All new season of Power Rangers Dino Fury airs every Saturday on Nickelodeon!

From CNET:

Power Rangers Dino Fury's new Gold Ranger is Jordon Fite

Actor Jordon Fite will suit up as the Gold Ranger on Power Rangers Dino Fury. Hasbro.

Exclusive: Fite is the first African-American actor to join a Power Rangers series as the team's sixth ranger.

Actor Jordon Fite is joining Power Rangers Dino Fury later this season as the show's Gold Ranger, and in doing so is the first African-American actor to join a Power Rangers team as its sixth member. 

The tradition of an extra member joining the core Power Ranger team traces back to the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers when actor Jason David Frank debuted as Green Ranger Tommy Oliver. Fite's character of Aiyon will likely get a similar showcase debut when he arrives.

Aiyon within the series will also be an alien from the same planet as Red Ranger Zayto (played by Russell Curry), and is described by Hasbro as a fun-loving Ranger who doesn't always play by the rules. His dinosaur will be the Mosasaur and his giant Zord will be named the Mosa Razor Zord.

The announcement about Fite came as part of Friday's Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest livestream, which featured other reveals from Hasbro including a self-transforming Transformers Optimus Prime.

Fite suits up as the Gold Ranger. Hasbro

Fite spoke with CNET over email about the reveal, his audition and what fans can expect from him going forward. Also throughout the Q&A are images of Fite, a clip of his casting announcement from the Hasbro Pulse event, and a clip with images from the seventh episode of Power Rangers Dino Fury debuting Saturday at 8 a.m. ET/PT on Nickelodeon, titled Stego Search, which will spotlight Black Ranger Javi (Chance Perez) when the theft of his keytar will force him to open up to his teammates.

CNET: Congrats on joining as the Gold Dino Fury Ranger! I previously spoke with your castmates about the auditioning process [amid] the pandemic -- how was auditioning different, and how long did your process take?

Fite: Thank you! Thank you! I started acting during the pandemic so the audition process for this show wasn't different for me because I had only done virtual audition tapes up to this point. However, everything else I experienced during this long process was a first-time experience for me! Especially with the long callback process.

As far as how long it took, I got my first audition for Power Rangers in March and didn't get my second one until I think July! I thought they must have chosen someone else. I was surprised to get a callback that long after the first audition. I believe I had about three more callbacks in August, plus a couple of Zoom meetings with the producers, and then they flew me to LA to meet with the team in person and ask a few last important questions, which I was excited and prepared for but nervous as this was my first time being flown in for a callback with the head of a production! The entire callback process was an amazing experience and I'm so grateful for this opportunity!

CNET: The Power Ranger nation is a bit sleuthy and a few blogs and Reddit reported your casting before it was ready to be confirmed. What was it like watching early fan reaction during the months that the news had to stay secret?

Fite: Oh my, so keeping this a secret from September of last year till yesterday was honestly the hardest thing I've ever done in my life! PR Nation has been making Instagram/Twitter posts, YouTube videos, etc., about me joining the team. I think I've seen every post and YouTube video there is about the reveal! I really appreciate them and can't wait to communicate with them! And of course, I love the support but it was hard to stay quiet while getting that amount of attention.

Then once I got to New Zealand and was around the other cast 24/7 my head just wanted to explode sometimes!! We would either be on set, traveling, or out to eat and when they took pictures I would always have to leave the table, leave from around the group or take the picture for them! I could never be in the picture with them but they are my family so I really wanted to! When I couldn't be in photos I would always have to tell myself to suck it up and deal with it, and remind myself that I'm the new Gold Power Ranger, Jordon Fite! Ha! Soon the world will know!

And I can't wait for everyone to meet Aiyon because he's so funny and .... a little insider information ... he doesn't like to play by the rules! Ha! I have to say I can personally relate to Aiyon and it's been so fun to play him! But yes, I have to admit it's been one of the hardest things I've ever had to do is to stay undercover, ha!

And here's a little more insider information that Ranger Nation doesn't know ... there were a couple of times that the cast and I did record videos and they forgot that I wasn't revealed yet and they almost posted them on their stories! Talk about a full panic before they hit post! Thankfully nothing was released because we know our loyal and faithful and I might even say amazing detectives, the Ranger Nation would have caught them! Ha!

I want to give a shout out to our Ranger Nation fans, and to the millions of fans on my TikTok! I hope they all know how much all of the Power Rangers love them and are truly grateful for them! Sincerely, thank you for your support and love! We appreciate you!

Hunter Deno, Russell Curry, Jordon Fite, Tessa Rao, Chance Perez. Hasbro

CNET: You are the first African American actor to join the Power Rangers as a sixth Ranger in the history of the franchise. What are your feelings about that milestone?

Fite: It's already an honor being a part of this great franchise! But to be the first African American sixth Ranger is beyond a privilege, I'm truly humbled. When Ranger Nation first told me this, I had to just take a moment to myself and realize what I've accomplished and just how big, and important this is! My feelings were and still are all over the place!!

I'm so grateful for everyone who's blazed the path before me and helped to make this possible for me. This is just such a deep honor. I can't wait for boys and girls who look like me to see me, the Gold Ranger, and realize that anything is possible! They can go after their dreams and make them happen! I hope to be a role model for them, and to help continue opening more doors and helping lead the way for everyone.

Javi (Chance Perez) playing a keytar that will be part of the seventh episode of Dino Fury. Hasbro

CNET: Have you had a chance to talk to any of the previous sixth Rangers from the Power Rangers alumni community?

Fite: No, I haven't spoken with any of the previous sixth Rangers, but hopefully that will change real soon now that I'm revealed!

But I have spoken to Gold Ranger [actor] Abraham Rodriguez (who played Nate) from last season's Power Rangers Beast Morphers. He offered me great advice with the show and talked about how amazing and supportive all of the Power Rangers fans are!

I'm so happy to be a part of Power Rangers! I'm equally excited about the opportunity I have to be a leader and role model for young kids, and all the good I can do and the change I can make by being a Gold Ranger! I'm so appreciative for this opportunity, and I want to make the most out of it!

CNET: What was it like suiting up for the first time?

Fite: Wow! How does one describe this honor? It's definitely a feeling that I'll never forget!! It felt unreal!! I had to slap myself a couple of times to see if I was awake or not and if this was really happening!! Ha, I'm kidding but when I put that suit on for the first time it was like a dream coming true from my childhood fantasies of becoming a Power Ranger!

I've always loved the Power Rangers and have looked up to them, and dreamed of becoming one, and now, I'm one of them, I'm a Power Ranger! The feeling is surreal and amazing, and this proves that dreams can and do come true! If I can do this, anyone can do this! And I can't wait to inspire millions to chase their dreams and make them happen... as the new Gold Power Ranger, and as Jordon Fite!

Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest Unveils New 'Power Rangers' Lightning Collection Figures, Gold Ranger and 'Power Month' Initiative

Four new limited-edition Power Rangers action figures are revealed for the Lightning Collection, including Rocky DeSantos and Aisha Campbell.

Four new Power Rangers action figures have been revealed by Hasbro as part of the limited Lightning Collection. The popular toy and TV franchise, which began in the early 1990s with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, has continued to be one of the most beloved brands among both young fans and seasoned collectors. The latest entry in the TV series, Power Rangers Dino Fury, began airing on Nickelodeon in February.

Over the years, many different actors and characters have stepped into the iconic, brightly colored Power Ranger suits to do battle with the forces of evil. The colors, abilities, and designs of the suits themselves have constantly changed, and that evolution is undeniably part of the franchise’s long-lasting appeal. Beyond the toy store and the TV screen, Power Rangers has also made its mark in the worlds of comics, books, video games, and feature films.

Hasbro unveiled their new series of limited-edition Power Rangers action figures during the toy company's brand-new collector-focused event, Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest on April 9. The range includes four classic Rangers. The Lightning Collection includes variants of Rocky DeSantos’ Red Ranger, Aisha Campbell’s Yellow Ranger, Adam Park’s Black Ranger, and Billy Cranston’s Blue Ranger, each with a sleek metallic design and a number of accessories. There will also be a Mighty Morphin Tyrannosaurus Sentry (from BOOM! Studios Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Comic) Target exclusive figure. The figures are available for preorder on Hasbro Pulse from today (April 9). Each figure retails for $24.99. The Red Sentry will be available to order later today via Target. The Lightning Collection releases on October 1. See the figures below, courtesy of ScreenRant and Tokunation.

During their inaugural Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest, Hasbro also revealed Aiyon the Gold Ranger, the latest ranger to join the Power Rangers Dino Fury team! Aiyon will be played by actor Jordon Fite.

Hasbro also declared that August 2021 will be Power Month! This will be a month-long event where retailers will be creating different capsules of merchandise such as GameStop doing a Pink Capsule and Walmart doing a Retro Capsule.

You can watch the entire Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest event below with the Power Rangers section happening at about 1:27:40:

With Power Rangers Dino Fury delivering the franchise’s 28th TV season, new comic series from BOOM! Studios and a Power Rangers shared universe on the way, the franchise shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The longevity of Power Rangers has spawned a generation of adult fans who grew up with the original series, in addition to the young viewers currently discovering Haim Saban’s world for the first time. The Lightning Collection figures harken back to the franchise’s earlier days, taking inspiration from some of the most beloved versions of the Red, Blue, Yellow and Black Rangers.

Though the 2017 Power Rangers film failed to kickstart a new theatrical run for the franchise, there have been rumors of new feature film projects on the horizon. A 2020 report claimed that Bryan Edward Hill had been brought on to write a new live-action reboot, which would see a new cast supplant that of the 2017 movie. Other rumors suggest the new film could involve time travel as a way of paying homage to the franchise’s 1990s origins.

The Power Rangers Lightning Collection figures are now available to preorder, and officially release on October 1, retailing at $24.99 apiece.
