Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years Review

Are you ready, kids? Aye Aye, Captain? I can’t hear you! Everyone’s favorite sponge and trusted sidekick are ready for adventure in the new KAMP KORAL: SPONGEBOB’S UNDER YEARS.

From my oldest to my youngest, SpongeBob SquarePants has been there since the preview on May 1, 1999.

We are big Nickelodeon and SpongeBob fans.

We even went to Nickelodeon’s Punta Canta Resort, where we toured the exclusive SpongeBob Pineapple House!

How cute is SpongeBob’s Pineapple House foyer?

Sorry for the detour! 

It’s sort of like Mrs. Puff showed up for Driving school!

Back to the new series: Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years!

The animated characters appeal to my kids and adults as we watch the adventures unfold under the sea.

SpongeBob’s optimism is second to none, and when with his starfish sidekick Patrick, they find creative resolution to life’s challenges.

This time, the duo is heading to Kamp Koral.

The iconic SpongeBob characters are pint-sized kid versions with plenty of references for long-time fans and fabulous fun whether you’re a new fan or a seasoned swooner.

Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years is the prequel to everything we know from the original SpongeBob SquarePants series.

It’s like looking through home movies of all the beloved characters during summer camp.

SpongeBob has an incredible universe to expand upon and the greenlight forKamp Koral is a testament to the strength and longevity of these characters known and loved by generations of fans around the world.“–Nickelodeon animation head Ramsey Naito

Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years Synopsis:

The series followers ten-year-old SpongeBob and his friends at summer sleepover camp.

Here they enjoy the adventures of catching wild jellyfish, building underwater campfires (perhaps a sing-along with the campfire song-song?), and swimming in Lake Yuckymuck.

Kamp Koral might be the most chaotic summer camp in the kelp forest.

The season premiere, “The Jellyfish Kid,” finds the gang going jellyfishing. 

SpongeBob’s first jellyfishing experience and friends are all in to help him.

Kamp Koral introduces new friends, narwhal siblings, Nobby (Carlos Alazraqui from The Casagrandes) and Narlene (Kate Higgins from Blaze and the Monster Machines), who live in the surrounding woods of Kamp Koral.

The series is Rated CG-animated.

Marc Ceccarelli (SpongeBob SquarePants), Vincent Waller (SpongeBob SquarePants), and Jennie Monica (SpongeBob SquarePants) are co-executive producers of the series. Production of KAMP KORAL: SPONGEBOB’S UNDER YEARS is overseen by Kelley Gardner, Vice President, Current Series Animation, Nickelodeon.  Nickelodeon Animation Studio produces the series in Burbank, Calif.

Our Thoughts:

But remember how I said it’d been 21 years, and we’ve probably been waiting for this?

I mean, I don’t hate it.

It’s just that…well, SpongeBob is a Legend.

Now, suddenly it seems his world has changed.

It’s a different feel for sure—some of the signature SpongeBob textures and looks are different.

Maybe I’m just not realizing the beauty of CG-Animation.

Here, tell me what you think:

The iconic character voices are there with voice talent from Tom Kenny (SpongeBob), Bill Fagerbakke (Patrick), Rodger Bumpass (Squidward), and Clancy Brown (Mr. Krabs), Mr. Lawrence (Plankton), and Carolyn Lawrence (Sandy). 

It’s probably me, but some of the character’s pint-sized voices seem….too…what is it my kids tell me, “Try Hard.”

SpongeBob’s iconic laugh–it’s…off.

Then again, I’m old. 

I don’t like change.

My kids love the colors; they feel engaged. 

Perhaps I just need to look at my Krabby burger and remember that SpongeBob will always be an icon.
