Clancy Brown & Carolyn Lawrence On SpongeBob SquarePants: ‘Never Thought It Would Last 20 Years’

(CBS Local)– In 1999, SpongeBob SquarePants started as a seven minute pilot on Nickelodeon and today it is one of the most iconic television shows in the world that is now streaming on ViacomCBS’ new platform Paramount+. Fans of SpongeBob, Patrick Star, Squidward Tentacles, Sandy Cheeks and Mr. Krabs can stream a brand new movie about the gang right now called “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run” and a new series called “Kamp Koral,” which goes back in time to life for a 10-year-old SpongeBob at summer camp.

CBS Local caught up with Clancy Brown and Carolyn Lawrence, the iconic voices behind Mr. Krabs and Sandy and both are incredibly excited for fans to check out the next chapter of the SpongeBob SquarePants story on Paramount+.

“People should be excited about something new and wonderful to sink yourself into during COVID,” said Lawrence, in an interview with CBS Local’s DJ Sixsmith. “The family can get together and enjoy this epic, crazy movie. It’s a fun ride and having the show is good, wholesome fun. We need some good, wholesome fun.”

“The movie is always a different experience than the series,” said Brown. “Kamp Koral is kind of a perfect thing to have these days. It takes place at summer camp and none of us can go to summer camp. None of us can be outdoors and all of this show takes place outdoors, under the sea of course. It’s all outdoors and it’s like going to camp in a cartoon.”

Brown has done over 200 episodes of the epic series, while Lawrence has been featured in over 180 episodes since the show first came on the air in the late 1990s. Both actors say that the program has changed their lives and careers in profound ways.

“It’s an anomaly in our industry,” said Lawrence. “It rarely ever happens and it also brought me most of my closest friends. I’ve met amazing people on our show and we have such a phenomenal team and that warms my heart. On a personal note, I was able to become a single parent and the only reason I was able to become a single parent is because the show gave me that life. I’m blessed on every level you could think of.”

“I was thinking I wanted to be doing more voiceovers because I wasn’t doing that much of it,” said Brown. “My daughter had just been born and she was maybe two or three years old at the time. I wanted to stick around town and this was a job that was in town. I really wanted to get it and didn’t think it would go on for 20 years. My daughter is a grown-up and making her own living now. I was just thinking I would love to get this gig, so I can spend more time with my family.”

Rodger Bumpass On ‘Kamp Koral: ‘You Find Out How Squidward Got To Be So Frustrated, Underappreciated’

(CBS Local)– Actor Roger Bumpass has gone on an epic journey the last 20 years as the voice of Squidward Tentacles in SpongeBob SquarePants. The 69-year-old has done over 240 episodes of the Nickelodeon series and can be heard playing SpongeBob’s frenemy in a new movie called “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On The Run” and a new series called “Kamp Koral,” which goes back in time to life for a 10-year-old SpongeBob at summer camp. Fans can check out this content exclusively on ViacomCBS’ new streaming service Paramount+.

CBS Local caught up with Bumpass and discussed the new movie and series, what it is like to play Squidward and how adults end up embracing their inner-Squidward as life becomes real.

“I’ve been doing acting for nearly 50 years now and I’ve been very blessed to be a part of a lot of different things,” said Bumpass, in an interview with CBS Local’s DJ Sixsmith. “This is the highest profile and highest legacy type of project I’ve ever been a part of. I’m exceedingly grateful that you can just be a part of something that is iconic in American culture.”

Bumpass says it was incredibly easy to find Squidward’s voice. As soon as he saw a picture of the cartoon character, he knew the voice would be extremely nasally and knew he could pull off the sarcasm of the lines written for him.

“When the first shows were produced, Squidward was kind of monotone,” said Bumpass. “It was just that one note and then they started expanding what he was called upon to do. I began to spread wings and really develop the character into something that is far more than one note. The characters after 21 years are far more fleshed out and far more nuanced. That’s the standard evolution for a long-running show.”

The actor loved doing “Kamp Koral” to provide more of a backstory to SpongeBob, Patrick Star and Squidward. He likes that fans will learn more about Squidward’s journey and why he is the way that he is.

“You find out how Squidward got to be so depressed, frustrated and underappreciated,” said Bumpass. “They all start fairly child-like and na├»ve and enthusiastic. Then in Squidward’s case, he gets knocked down sequentially until he develops into that sourpuss that we know so well. Fans always each of us that we are their favorite character. There is an evolution that I see quite often. When kids watch the show, they identify with SpongeBob. He is innocent and the fun-loving character. Then as the viewer gets to be an adult and sees what it’s like to get that job and have those bills, they become Squidward. I’ve heard that countless times. Then when you get older, you become SpongeBob again.”

Tom Kenney & Bill Fagerbakke: ‘People Find SpongeBob SquarePants & Patrick Star Fun To Hang Out With’

(CBS Local)– Paramount+ is now streaming and fans of SpongeBob SquarePants will be delighted to know that there is a brand new movie and TV series available right now. “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run” is a film about SpongeBob and Patrick Star searching for SponeBob’s beloved pet snail Gary after he goes missing and “Kamp Koral” provides a new look at the gang when SpongeBob was just 10- years-old.

Tom Kenney and Bill Fagerbakke have been the iconic voices of SpongeBob and Patrick for decades and they talked with CBS Local recently about the new SpongeBob content and how these roles have changed their lives.

“If a genie showed up with a wish to give me the best gig in the world, this would be it,” said Kenney, in an interview with CBS Local’s DJ Sixsmith. “We had a drive-in premiere of the film and just seeing Bill’s two daughters there, I remember when they were little kids at the premiere party in 1999 or whatever. SpongeBob has been a constant in our lives for so long. He seems to fill that function in a lot of lives.”

“One of the core things for me, aside from it being such a marvelous job with wonderful people, is my children were five and seven when it debuted,” said Fagerbakke. “I got to see the show through their eyes and through the eyes of their friends. It really added another layer to parenting, which continues to delight me to this day.”

Kenney and Fagerbakke still remember the seven minute pilot of the show they did for Nickelodeon that they watched back on a VHS tape. The animated series has become one of the most iconic TV shows of all-time and the actors are still blown away at how the show continues grow after being on the air for over 20 years.

“You’re just amazed that there are new wrinkles to be added,” said Kenney. “SpongeBob keeps going into new areas. There are new countries that are just getting SpongeBob. Today is always somebody’s on-ramp onto the SpongeBob highway. Parents would come up to me and say I want to thank you for saving me from Barney the dinosaur. People find SpongeBob and Patrick fun to hang out with.”

“One of the things that really struck me early on was parents saying I really appreciate I have something I enjoy watching with my kid,” said Fagerbakke. “Being a parent, I understood that and I got it. That struck me.

Stream “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run” and “Kamp Koral” on Paramount+ right now.
