Nickelodeon will be greeting the new year with hilarity as they air a Spongebob Squarepants marathon on Tuesday, January 1, starting from 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM ET/PT. The marathon will also feature a brand new episode titled Squid’s Defense “Karate Pants,” which premieres at 7 PM ET/PT.
The new episode finds Squidward unconscious in an alley after a harrowing incident, which prompted both Spongebob and Sandy to try and teach him karate as a means of self-defense. Squidward chops, kicks, blocks, and learns to master everyday movements.
Additionally, Nick will be launching a brand new Spongebob Squarepants mini game on December 31, titled The Kah-rah-tay Squid, featuring Squidward as the main character. In the game, various everyday objects will appear onscreen while Squidward is walking. The players will have to make Squidward karate chop the oncoming objects using the mouse. As players succeed and gain points, Squidward will get increasingly charged up; his expression will change and his chops become more powerful, granting score bonuses making things look progressively cooler as particles fly around.
