SpongeBob's Campfire Song Song Was Almost DIFFERENT | Vailskibum94

In an early SpongeBob SquarePants episode, SpongeBob sang The Campfire Song Song. Squidward hated it and Patrick tried to sing along, but this has always been one of the standout moments from SpongeBob's golden era. As it turns out, there's an interesting deleted segment!

Dan Povenmire, creator of Phineas & Ferb, is actually the one who originally wrote The Campfire Song Song. In a new video uploaded to his YouTube channel, he dives into a forgotten segment that never made it into the final SpongeBob SquarePants episode. Why was it cut out, and will we ever get to hear what it would've sounded like?

Let's gather 'round the campfire, and sing our campfire song...

Nickelodeon and Paramount Ink ‘The Smurfs’ Multi-Movie Deal, Announce Season Two Pickup

First feature project with LAFIG Belgium and IMPS, an animated musical, is set to release December 2024; 26-episode second season pickup of CG-animated The Smurfs series also announced.

Nickelodeon Animation and Paramount Pictures have announced that they have formed a deal with LAFIG Belgium and IMPS to produce multiple feature films based on The Smurfs, the iconic characters and stories created by Belgian artist Pierre Culliford, also known as Peyo. The news was announced by Ramsey Naito, President of Animation for Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Animation. The first project under the new partnership is an animated musical feature film set to begin production in 2022 with a planned release on December 20, 2024.

“Nickelodeon is the home to some of the world’s most popular family franchises, and we’re honored to add The Smurfs to that roster," said Naito, adding "We’re excited to tell a story that stays true to its origins, but with a Smurf-tastic musical twist that excites new audiences and builds on the Smurfs franchise and universe of wonderful characters and stories.”

The movie will be produced by Nickelodeon Animation in partnership with Paramount Pictures, LAFIG Belgium and IMPS, with Pam Brady (South Park, Team America) writing. Brady will also step into other creative roles that are yet to be announced.

“It is with great joy and pride that I welcome this new Smurfs film!” said Véronique Culliford, Founder & President of LAFIG and IMPS. “I am truly excited with this wonderful partnership with the talented, creative and dynamic teams at Paramount Pictures, Nickelodeon Animation, and IMPS.   I am convinced that this great collaboration will allow families around the world to immerse themselves in this unique universe of humor and extraordinary adventures. I have no doubt that my father, creator of these marvelous world-famous characters, would also be delighted with this continuation of his work. I look so forward to seeing audiences gather together in the near future to enjoy this new adventure of our beloved Smurfs!”

Latifa Ouaou, Executive Vice President, Movies and Global Franchises, Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Animation, will manage the LAFIG Belgium and IMPS partnership on behalf of the Studio; Details on key creative leads, including the director, will be announced soon.

The Smurfs is an iconic and beloved franchise, and we can’t wait introduce it to a whole new generation of fans by bringing a fresh cinematic perspective to the Smurfs franchise with this all-new story on the big screen,” Ouaou noted.

Nickelodeon, LAFIG Belgium and IMPS have also announced a second season (26 episodes) pickup of the original CG-animated The Smurfs television series. The all-new season will continue to follow the Smurfs on a variety of adventures, including time traveling, inventing a magic camera, accidental body swapping, and more. No release date was shared.

Nickelodeon, LAFIG Belgium and IMPS had previously entered a deal to produce a brand-new original CG-animated series based on The Smurfs, which launched last September in the U.S., and has since ranked among the top five animated series on cable with Kids 2-11. After its U.S. debut, it aired on Nickelodeon channels internationally. In Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands the series will air on the public channels KiKA, Ketnet, RTBF, and npo Zappelin, and in France on TF1.

In addition to the content partnership, ViacomCBS Consumer Products (VCP) is the consumer products licensing agent for The Smurfs property across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Malaysia and certain South American territories. VCP will seek new merchandising and promotional partners in select categories and territories for The Smurfs classic brand, in addition to a new product line for the new animated series The Smurfs, spanning a variety of categories, launching at retail in 2022.

The Smurfs film marks Nickelodeon Animation’s second CG-animated theatrical production. An all-new CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Next Chapter, produced in partnership with award-winning Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver and directed by Jeff Rowe, is currently in production and slated for an August 4, 2023 release.

“As the leading film school in Israel, we are proud to continue creating opportunities for young Israeli creators making their way in the film and television industry,” said Dana Blankstein Cohen, Sam Spiegel Film and Television School executive director. She said the “launch of this Series Lab is a natural offshoot of our far-reaching and in-depth educational process.”

Arnold said she was “proud to partner with the Sam Spiegel School’s Series Lab program to elevate diverse Israeli voices and champion the power of storytelling.”
