Is it normal for a human being to have a cartoon nemesis? If so, SpongeBob SquarePants is mine. I can’t stand anything about him or his namesake series, to the point of it becoming a running joke.  In fact, when my wife and I took The Rock Daughters to Nickelodeon Universe at Mall of America, I had to stay off to the side and pretend I was cool with Mr. SquarePants hanging with my kids. Alas, it’s my duty to inform you and my pleasure to warn you that the undersea dweller who once tricked me into watching his big-screen debut if only to see David Hasselhoff (who was but a cameo) is back with a new DVD set, SpongeBob SquarePants: The Complete Ninth Season. Details below…

From the Official Announcement: SpongeBob and friends are back underwater with the DVD release of SpongeBob SquarePants: The Complete Ninth Season, which includes over 20 episodes and three double-length episodes from the show’s ninth season. SpongeBob SquarePants continues to be the most-watched animated series for the past 15 years and in this DVD, SpongeBob, Sandy, Patrick, Squidward, Mr. Krabs and Plankton are up to even more of their wet-and-wild, deep-sea dilemmas! Whether it’s SpongeBob searching for a job, Squidward learning the art of kah-rah-tay or Mr. Krabs getting married (to a pile of cold-hard-cash!), the nautical nonsense is as rampant as ever!

Fans of this long-time fan-favorite cartoon won’t want to miss this hilarious collection. SpongeBob SquarePants: The Complete Ninth Season comes with four discs and over nine hours of content, including five special SpongeBob SquarePants shorts. Produced by Nickelodeon Home Entertainment and distributed by Paramount Home Media Distribution, SpongeBob SquarePants: The Complete Ninth Season will be available on DVD October 10, for the suggested retail price of $22.99.
