Goofy Goober Something Something

Day 19. 49 pages, 23,678 words.

I lost my Spongebob Squareginity last night.

Yes, I sat down with Wump and randomly Netflix’d around until she said “that one”. Then we sat and enjoyed the feature-length movie, which I guess was a bit more family-friendly and less spaced-out and weird than the TV shows, but I’m not sure since I haven’t seen any of them. This was plenty weird enough.

I can’t believe the voice talent they had in this movie! Clancy Brown? Jeffrey Tambor? Scarlett Johansson? Alec Baldwin?

Wow! The Hoff rocks!

And The Hoff!

Anyway, this was a wacky and quite fun movie, and I’m not entirely sure how much of it Wump understood. Certainly there were layers to it and she was wondering why I was chuckling from time to time, but there was also a sufficiently simple primary storyline for a four-year-old[1] to follow. It was sort of a blend between Snorks and Ren and Stimpy. Which is exactly as surreal as it sounds, I assure you in the unlikely event you haven’t seen the show or movies.

[1] Or massively stoned twenty-something-year-old.

And the best part of all? At the end, adorably, a familiar old song played over the credits.

I started singing along with it. Wump was stunned. “Hey,” she said in outrage, “how do you know how to sing this song?”

“Well sweetie, that song is by a band called Ween, that papa used to listen to when he was a weird teenager.”

Nostalgia.

    So that’s the first Spongebob you’ve ever watched? Compared to most of the episodes, the movie is quite dull and unfunny, I have to say. In fact I don’t like watching the movie but will watch pretty much any episode with my girls.

      Yeah, first ever. I figured the show had to be “better”, for various definitions. So often the way with full-length movie versions of TV shows, isn’t it?

    I *want* to agree because I’m pretty damn sure you’re right and that IS a thing, but in my developing years[1] I was colored by “Beavis and Butthead Do America”, which was such a tour-de-force that I watched it in the THEATER twice, dragging Marta along the second time.

    [1]Yes, a bit late at 21 to be “developing” but I was a late bloomer, what can I say?

    So anyway, watch the show itself, it’ll grow on you.
