- PIease weIcome our new manager...

...Squidward TentacIes.

Yes! Yeah!

Oh, better Iuck next time, buddy.

Yeah! AII right!

PeopIe of Bikini Bottom,

as the manager of--


HoId the phone, foIks, I'm getting an

important news fIash from Mr. Krabs.

Go ahead, Mr. K.

I'm making a compIete what

of myseIf?

The most embarrassing thing

you've ever seen?

And now it's worse

because I'm repeating

everything you say

into the microphone?

Oh, for crying out Ioud, SpongeBob,

you didn't get the job.

- What?

- You did not get the job.

But-- But why?

SpongeBob, you're a great fry cook,

but I gave the job to Squidward

because being manager

is a big responsibiIity.

WeII, Iet's face it, he's more...

- ...mature than you.

- I'm not...


Lad, I mean this

in the nicest of ways,

but there's a word for what you are,

and that word is...

Now, Iet's see...

- Dork?

- No, wait, that's not right. Not a dork.

- A goofbaII?

- CIoser, but no, no, no.

- A ding-a-Iing.

- Wing nut.

A KnuckIehead McSpazatron.

Okay, that's enough.

Look, what I'm trying to say is,

you're just a kid.

And to be a manager,

you have to be a man.

Otherwise they'd caII it ''kid-ager.''

You understand-ager?

I mean, you understand?

I guess so, Mr. Krabs.


I'm ready. Depression.

I'm ready. Depression.

Poor kid.

Hooray for SpongeBob!

Hooray for SpongeBob!

Let's hear it for SpongeBob!


Where'd everybody go?

Did I miss something?

Did you see my butt?

Later that evening...

Time to put PIan Z into effect.

Starting at the undersea castIe

of King Neptune.

Oh, right.

The royaI court is now in session.

Bring the prisoner forward.

So you have confessed to the crime

of touching the king's crown.

- Yes, but--

- But what?

But it's my job, Your Highness.

I'm the royaI crown poIisher.

WeII, then I guess

I can't execute you.

- Twenty years in the dungeon it is.

- Daddy.

You're free to go.

BIess you, Princess Mindy.

Mindy, how dare you defy me.

Why do you have to be so mean?

I am the king.

I must enforce the Iaws of the sea.

Father, I wish you'd try

a IittIe Iove and compassion

instead of these harsh punishments.

That wouId be nice.

Squire, cIear the room.

I wish to speak

to my daughter aIone.

What is this, Mindy?

- Your crown?

- And what does this crown do?

- Covers your baId spot.

- It's not baId, it's


This crown does much more

than cover a sIightIy receding hairIine.

No, this crown entitIes the one who

wears it to be in charge of the sea.

One day, you wiII wear this crown.

I'm gonna be baId?


Anyway, the point is,

you won't wear it

untiI you Iearn how to ruIe

with an iron fist.

Stephen Hillenburg

Stephen McDannell Hillenburg (born August 21, 1961) is an American cartoonist, animator, and former marine biologist. He is the creator of the Nickelodeon television series SpongeBob SquarePants (1999–), which he has also directed, produced, and written. It has gone on to become one of the longest-running American television series as well as the highest-rated show ever to air on Nickelodeon. Born in Lawton, Oklahoma and raised in Anaheim, California, Hillenburg became fascinated with the ocean as a child and developed an interest in art. He started his professional career in 1984, instructing marine biology, at the Orange County Marine Institute, where he wrote The Intertidal Zone, an informative comic book about tide-pool animals, which he used to educate his students. In 1989, two years after leaving teaching, Hillenburg enrolled at the California Institute of the Arts to pursue a career in animation. He was later offered a job on the Nickelodeon animated television series Rocko's Modern Life (1993–1996) after his success with short films The Green Beret and Wormholes (both 1992), which he made while studying animation. In 1994, Hillenburg began developing The Intertidal Zone characters and concepts for what became SpongeBob SquarePants. The show premiered in 1999 and has aired since then. He also directed The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (2004), which he originally intended to be the series finale. However, Nickelodeon wanted to produce more episodes, so Hillenburg resigned as the showrunner. He went back to making short films, with Hollywood Blvd., USA (2013). In 2015, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water premiered; the sequel to the 2004 film, it marked Hillenburg's return to the show, after he co-wrote the story. Besides his two Emmy Awards and six Annie Awards for SpongeBob SquarePants, Hillenburg has also received other recognition, such as an accolade from Heal the Bay for his efforts on elevating marine life awareness, and the Television Animation Award from the National Cartoonists Society. Despite this, he has been involved in public controversies, including one that centered on speculation over the SpongeBob character's intended sexual orientation, and a lawsuit that was filed against him. Hillenburg has been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in 2017, but stated he would continue to work on his show. more…
