Baby Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy Unite on 'The Patrick Star Show'

Baby Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy Unite in The Patrick Star Show!

The upcoming brand new The Patrick Star Show will see the superheroic duo of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy join the SpongeBob SquarePants spinoff series -- as babies. Check out a super sneak peek of "Super Sitters" below, courtesy of CBR!

Whereas last week's episode, "Pearl Wants to Be a Star," saw SpongeBob mainstay Pearl Krabs (Lori Alan) make her Patrick Star Show debut, this new episode brings Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy into the fold.

"Super Sitters" was originally scheduled to premiere on April 22, however, got postponed until a later date.

UPDATE (3/28/23) - Nickelodeon will premiere the brand new The Patrick Star Show episode "Super Sitters" on Monday, April 10 at 5:00 p.m. (ET/PT), as part of a premiere week!

"Super Sitters" - Patrick and SpongeBob go back in time to watch Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy when they were new. After traveling through the time closet, Patrick and SpongeBob meet their favorite TV superheroes as babies. Young Mermaid Man and Young Barnacle boy are voiced by Tom Kenny, who also voices SpongeBob SquarePants.

The clip finds Patrick Star (Bill Fagerbakke) and SpongeBob SquarePants (Tom Kenny) in the past, where they encounter their heroes, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, when they were still just babies. (The baby versions of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy are both voiced by Kenny.) Tiny versions of some of the superheroes' enemies can also be spotted, namely Man Ray and the Dirty Bubble.

A pair of semi-retired, geriatric superheroes whom SpongeBob and Patrick idolize, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy first appeared in "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy," which originally aired on Nickelodeon in 1999 as part of SpongeBob SquarePants Season 1. As the show's run continued, the heroes became significant recurring players.

Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy were originally voiced by the late Ernest Borgnine and the late Tim Conway, respectively. The characters were technically retired following Borgnine's death in 2012, though Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy have continued to appear on SpongeBob in the form of non-physical or otherwise non-speaking cameos.

That said, The Patrick Star Show actually isn't the first time Kenny has lent his voice to Mermaid Man. In fact, Kenny first voiced a younger version of Mermaid Man during the character's 1999 debut episode. Similarly, Adam West and Burt Ward -- who famously played the comparable duo of Batman and Robin -- voiced younger versions of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, respectively, in the 2010 SpongeBob episode "Back to the Past."
