Even SpongeBob SquarePants cannot escape the torments of unemployment and corporate downsizing. In a new episode, which illustrates the struggling US economy, the cherished children’s TV character is made redundant and goes through a period of depression and despair while looking for work. In the topical Nickelodeon episode normally cheerful Sponge Bob gets the boot after 14 years of faithful service at the Krusty Krab burger shack – because his boss discovers he can save ten cents by giving Sponge Bob the sack. Feeling demoralised the absorbent cartoon personality offers to work for free but his heartless employer Mr. Krabs doesn’t allow it because free labour is illegal. “Like all really great cartoons, part of SpongeBob’s long-running success has been its ability to tap into the zeitgeist while still being really funny for our audience,” says Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon’s President of Content, Development and Production.
