Yes, get ready for more of that uptight sponge with his big fat starfish friend. Nickelodeon has renewed Spongebob Squarepants for a ninth season, consisting of 26 episodes and will air in 2012. During that season, the show will pass the 200 episode milestone. ‘Spongebob’ is Nickelodeon’s longest running show, and it’s most successful, being #1 with kids 2-11 for 10 years straight, and running. I’m so glad the show’s been renewed, even though I saw this a mile away. The show is so ridiculously funny, that I remember many funny parts during my day and crack up in the oddest places and situations.Go Spongebob!
