Aakriti Sharma and Myra Singh Gill Join Nickelodeon India's #GoGreenWithNick Campaign to Teach Kids About Going Green During the Lockdown

Aakriti Sharma: Have started to reduce, reuse and recycle things


Mumbai - Child actor Aakriti Sharma says the lockdown has made her realise "how much destruction humans have caused" to the planet, adding that she has introduced a few eco-friendly changes in her life.

"We have been staying at home for so many days so that the virus does not spread more. With everybody sitting at home, everything around me is changing, even the environment. The sky is clearer and there are lesser cars on roads, thus reducing pollution," Aakriti said.

"This has helped me in understanding how much destruction humans have caused. I have even started to reduce, reuse and recycle things kept at home and ask my friends to do so. I am glad that we are looking at the positives of this lockdown," added the actor, who features in the musical drama Kullfi Kumarr Bajewala.

Fellow child actress Myra Singh Gill, who has a starring role in the show, says "as a part of the young generation, I feel it is everyone's responsibility to take care of nature".

"At present, the world is fighting a big crisis but it has also helped in healing the environment. From cleaner beaches and fresh air, I also hope that the world is able to come out soon without masks and protections and I can go to school soon and meet my friends. My mother and I have decided to plant more saplings this Environment Day," Myra added.

As part of celebrating World Environment Day, the child stars have collaborated with Nickelodeon India for the channel's #GoGreenWithNick pro-social campaign, through which they aim to educate people about the positive ways in which the lockdown has benefited the environment.

Tia Mowry Recalls Her Mum Darlene Being Racially Profiled at Height of 'Sister Sister' Fame

Sister, Sister and Instant Mom star Tia Mowry has revealed several moments in which she saw her white father and black mother treated differently due to their skin colour.

The actor opened up about how she would watch her mother Darlene get discriminated against, while her father Timothy would instead be able to benefit from white privilege.

Sharing a Throwback Thursday image of herself and her twin sister Tamera posing with their mother on the red carpet, she shared several examples.

The actor wrote: "This is a photo of my beautiful mother. Growing up biracial, mom is black and dad is white, it was very clear to me seeing the privilege that my dad had as opposed to my mother."

The Nickelodeon alum continued: "Some examples, during our Sister, Sister days when traveling for work we would often fly first class.

"There were several times my mother was asked if she was in the right seat. Another incident that stood out for me was when we were buying our first home as a family."

'SpongeBob' Star Tom Kenny on Filming New Special From Home, How Lockdown Affects Bikini Bottom

Tom Kenny, who voices SpongeBob himself, also talks about why SpongeBob is a meme star.

The COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak hasn't been easy on anyone, and there's one fictional character who'd especially struggle with the isolation of lockdown. Perpetually upbeat SpongeBob SquarePants would be crushed by having to put his social life on hold, Tom Kenny, who voices SpongeBob, told Gael Fashingbauer Cooper, reporting for CNET.

Of all the residents of Bikini Bottom, lockdown is "probably hardest on SpongeBob because he's such a social creature," the Emmy Award-winning actor told Cooper over the phone. SpongeBob "loves going out to work at the Krusty Krab, and he loves being out in the town, and he loves hanging out with his friends, and he loves doing stuff."

SpongeBob's friends might adapt better to quarantine than the sponge himself.

"Squidward is a social distancer just by his personality," Kenny said of SpongeBob's morose co-worker. "Patrick lives under a rock. Sandy is the only mammal for 20,000 leagues around, so she's used to kinda being a lone wolf -- or a lone squirrel. And Mr. Krabs would rather just hang out with his cash register and count his money in the back room than do anything else, so yeah, I think that they're probably doing better than SpongeBob."

Kenny has voiced SpongeBob since the Nickelodeon animated show's 1999 premiere, and he'll voice SpongeBob in a new program, The Stars of SpongeBob Fan Favorites Special, airing Friday, May 5, 2020 on Nickelodeon.

YouTube personality David Dobrik hosts the half-hour show, which features animation from original SpongeBob SquarePants episodes, with the regular voice cast redoing the same lines they delivered years ago. Fans were allowed to vote on a small selection of scenes at NickPlay.com, with the top vote-getters being used in the special.

Kenny said the re-created scenes felt fresh to the voice actors, even though they've done them before. "Some of (the scenes) are 20 years old, so those mental files were dumped long ago by the cast," he said. "So that just kinda adds to the fun."

The actor hopes the fan-favorites special provides some laughs in these strange times. The cast recorded from their homes, as opposed to joining together in one studio as they usually do.

"Cartoons are this kinda comfort-food product," Kenny said, in a friendly, professional voice you'd never connect to SpongeBob's bubbly, perky tones. (He sounds a bit like Breaking Bad and Malcolm in the Middle star Bryan Cranston, actually.) "You can make it in a different way but the end product still looks and tastes and smells the same way it ever did. It's like a Krabby Patty."

Kenny himself is staying busy in his "pineapple under the sea in Studio City (California)," he said. In addition to recording for Rick and Morty -- he's voiced everyone from the ever-helpful Mr. Meeseeks and the cat-like Squanchy to the uber-creepy King Jellybean -- and other projects, he's working on regular SpongeBob SquarePants season 13 episodes as well as the show's upcoming new Nickelodeon spinoff, Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years. (Neither the new SpongeBob season nor Kamp Koral have premiere dates yet.)

"Cartoons just translate globally to all cultures better than most pop culture." - Tom Kenny, voice of SpongeBob SquarePants

In the new show, a 10-year-old SpongeBob and young versions of his current pals enjoy crazy adventures at sleepaway camp.

"All the regulars are there, and you get to see them in their nascent days," said Kenny, demonstrating how he squeaks his versatile voice into an even higher register to voice "little-kid SpongeBob."

The spinoff show will be set up in the upcoming third film for SpongeBob and crew -- The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, which includes flashbacks to the friends' Kamp Koral days. The film is currently scheduled for theatrical release on Aug. 7, having been postponed twice now by the coronavirus outbreak.


While the outbreak hasn't found its way into SpongeBob's fictional world, the character himself, long a favorite topic of meme-makers, is again showing up in plenty of memes about the virus.

In one, a nervous SpongeBob SquarePants hyperventilates underneath the caption, "Somebody said reopening the economy right now is like believing your ex changed after two months."

In another, SpongeBob appears to be getting up to leave his house, (he's actually sitting down), and the wording reads, "People with the coronavirus when they get infected and go to get other countries infected."

Cooper talked to Kenny before global protests erupted following the tragic death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis. But SpongeBob has turned up in those related memes as well, including one showing a sick SpongeBob after presumably contracting the virus at a protest, and one offering a jab at those who replaced their social media image with a black square, but did nothing else.

Kenny says he hasn't seen any of the coronavirus-specific SpongeBob memes -- and Cooper and Kenny spoke before the protest-related memes really took off -- but he understands why the character he voices has become such a universal backdrop, praising the expressiveness of the artwork and the artists' talents.

"Cartoons just translate globally to all cultures better than most pop culture," Kenny said. "I think that's why he's been so adopted by the meme culture."

TOM KENNY TALKS SPONGEBOB TABLE READ SPECIAL AND SINGING THE 'INDOORS SONG'


Credit: Greg Doherty/Getty Images

On Friday, June 5, Nickelodeon is holding a virtual table read of some iconic SpongeBob SquarePants scenes performed by the show's core voice cast: Tom Kenny (SpongeBob/Gary), Bill Fagerbakke (Patrick), Rodger Bumpass (Squidward), Carolyn Lawrence (Sandy), Clancy Brown (Mr. Krabs), and Mr. Lawrence (Plankton).

"We haven’t seen each other since this whole thing started," Kenny tells SYFY WIRE, referring to the coronavirus pandemic and how it's made in-person animation recordings impossible. "We’re used to recording together in the same room, pretty much every Wednesday for 20 years plus. I’m the voice director, I direct those guys and we miss it... We're really excited to get back together and be those characters again in an ensemble, not in a vacuum by yourself like this."

Hosted by YouTube personality David Dobrick, the half-hour special is dictated entirely by fans who have already cast their votes on eight absorbent, yellow, and porous moments they want to see recreated. We won't know what sequences were chosen until the event premieres (like Mr. Krabs and the Krabby Patty formula, Nick's keeping details pretty close to the vest) but the candidates can be viewed below.

"There are some [scenes] that always pop up and some of the ones that people are fond of are kind of the more obscure ones," Kenny says. "Who knows what the voting’s gonna bring, but it’ll be fun. It’s always fun to revisit these episodes because we do them and I direct them and then a whole bunch of other stuff supplants that in your brain. You just gotta move on to other shows, other episodes, other life stuff. You kind of forget about it and meanwhile, there’s people out there that’ve been watching it a 150 times and it’s really part of their DNA, even more than it’s [part of] ours."

After more than two decades of voicing Bikini Bottom's happy-go-lucky fry cook, the prolific voice actor has no shortage of favorite episodes, scenes, and lines of dialogue. The best part is that they're always cropping up at all hours of the day. In short, Mr. SquarePants is never detached from Kenny's life.

"I’ll be reading to kids in a school classroom [or] I’ll see kids fooling around and, of course, you think about, ‘What’s funnier than 24?... 25!’ I’m just constantly reminded of SpongeBob stuff and I think the fans are like that, too," he adds. "These scenes are just part of their memory bank and that’s what the memes are, right? It’s like, ‘Hey, this situation kind of reminds me of this drawing of SpongeBob. This Squidward face goes great with this situation. It encapsulates this situation that I’m feeling right now.’ It really depends on the day and it depends on what I’m seeing but, yeah, there’s a lot of SpongeBob-centric memories in my brain once I’m walking through the world."

And speaking of memes, it's staggering to the see sheer amount of relatable imagery the series has delivered unto the internet. Whether it's "Savage Patrick" or "Mocking SpongeBob," everyone's got their go-to template, including Kenny.

"I used to love ‘Imma head out.’ There’s no place for me to head out to anymore!" he jokes. "Where do I go? The store once a month? I understand that there are corona-specific SpongeBob memes and I must admit that I haven’t really seen those yet, but I love all the SpongeBob memes. They’re hilarious."

While we're on the subject of SquarePants content that applies to our everyday lives, let's talk about "I Had an Accident," the Season 3 episode wherein the lovable sponge shatters his posterior and, terrified of having to use an "iron butt" lest he breaks it again, quarantines himself inside his pineapple home against external danger. To anyone isolating amid the pandemic, it's no longer so far-fetched to think that a person could make friends with a potato chip, penny, and used napkin after nearly three months of no physical contact with the outside world.

"I realized that I’m very much like SpongeBob. I am not a stay-at-home, shelter-in-place person," Kenny admits. "Like SpongeBob, I’m realizing I don’t do well on lockdown. I like my community and I like going out and I like restaurants and I like people and I like hanging out and I like going to live music shows all the time. I love going to see old movies. SpongeBob is probably doing about as good as I would do, which is not well."

He notes that other SpongeBob characters would probably fare a lot better in the current situation.

"Squidward, he’s been social distancing forever. His personality is his social distancing," the actor explains. "Patrick lives under a rock. Sandy, she’s kind of a loner anyway because she’s the only Texan she knows, so she just hangs out in her dome and does science. Mr. Krabs just wants to hang out in the backroom and count his money... Gary’s at home while SpongeBob works all day... [But] me and SpongeBob need to get out of the house, man."

Has he sung the "Indoors Song" yet? You bet. "That's kind of my anthem now," Kenny says after belting out a line of the chorus. "I have a deep, personal relationship with a potato chip."


As the interview winds down, Kenny remembers SpongeBob's beloved creator, Stephen Hillenburg. He tragically died from ALS complications in November of 2018, but his underwater legacy lives on. At last summer's San Diego Comic-Con, Kenny recounted SpongeBob's humble beginnings as a mere sketch in Hillenburg's desk drawer.

"[It] could’ve easily been something that lived in his notebook forever," Kenny says. "And the fact that it was allowed to happen and that Nickelodeon got behind it and that the fans got behind it and that it’s had this trajectory that’s still ongoing, is just this beautiful [thing]. I could never have foreseen it. I couldn’t have foreseen it even enough to wish for it. It’s just such a weird thing, an anomaly and to be a part of that is ridiculous."

Kenny keeps constant "reminders" of the creator throughout his home office such as a custom drawing of SpongeBob that Hillenburg made just for him when the show "first started to take off." He also has a 2002 TV Guide cover — co-illustrated by Hillenburg — that mashes up SpongeBob and Popeye (the spinach-eating sailor was mutually beloved by creator and actor).

"[Stephen] changed my life for sure. He changed my career for sure," Kenny says. "He gave me the keys to that character. He gave me tons of freedom and said, ‘There’s a lot of you in this character, you know what to do. I’m not gonna micromanage the voice or micromanage your performance. You know this guy.’ Not very many creators give you that amount of freedom. Steph was such a secure guy and he gave everybody that freedom... He said, ‘You know the character, I picked you because you can channel the character, so just channel the character. If something feels right, do it.’ He was open to trying anything."

More than two decades later, and the denizens of Bikini Bottom are omnipresent; pretty much everyone up on dry land knows who they are and what they look and sound like. SpongeBob SquarePants is simply — and excuse the maritime pun here — an anchor of our popular culture.

"I feel really grateful to be a part of something like that," Kenny concludes. "I don’t think very many actors get to be a part of something like that. I don’t even really fully appreciate what that means yet or understand it. I won’t know for years and years. It’s a testament, I think, to the power of creativity and ideas that Steph Hillenburg had."

The Stars of SpongeBob: Fan Favorites Special airs on Nick this Friday at 7:00 p.m. EST.
