Based on the Nickelodeon series Spongebob Squarepants, this movie sees the spongey hero come ashore in his latest adventure.
Dubbing has begun by Macalla Teoranta — the team which dubs the SpongeBob Squarepants TV series on TG4, so they have plenty of practice of the various characters – Spongebob himself, Sally the squirrel and Patrick the starfish!
