Trick or Nick! This Friday, October 22, scary fans and cartoon fanatics can click on Nickelodeon to catch all-new 30-minute Halloween themed episodes of the reboot. Rugrats and the spin-off of SpongeBob SquarePants Patrick Star Show. To celebrate the occult occasion, we're offering a scream preview to both specials, as well as a behind-the-scenes preview of how Screen Novelties' mad stop-motion scientists created a felt Frankenstein fairy tale for SpongeBob. Patrick and Plankton.
Rugrats "The Hunter of Werewoof" - Tommy needs the help of his friends to save Angelica after she turns into a werewolf at a scary Halloween party where their parents seem to disappear one after another. The episode is now available on Paramount + and will air on Nickelodeon on Friday 22 October at 20:30 pm. (ET / PT).
The Patrick Star Show "Terror at 20.000 leagues" - Patrick sets out on a spooky Halloween adventure with a mix of stop-motion, puppets and 2D animation. The half-hour episode will air on Nickelodeon on Friday 22 October at 19pm. (ET / PT).
Los Angeles-based Screen Novelties produced the special, in which miniature puppets and sets bring the series and characters to life in three dimensions. They also produced two original Halloween-themed shorts for the series, which premiered last Friday.
It took two main phases and two secondary phases running over several months to create the nearly 12 minutes of footage in “Terror at 20.000 Leagues”.
Dr. Plankenstein's Castle is a sandcastle somewhere on the haunted outskirts of Bikini Bottom and the "forest" around the castle is made up of those "teardrop castles" often made on the beach by children.
The peculiarities… oatmeal! It took about six different formulas to make an animable and visually satisfying oatmeal. The real oats were mixed with wax, classic slime from the "elementary school science project" and other secret ingredients. Then it took days to make the animation, so it had to hold its shape for many hours at a time.
