DVD Release: SpongeBob SquarePants: The Pilot, A Mini-Movie and The SquareShorts

The Pilot, A Mini-Movie and The SquareShorts DVD

Today, Paramount is releasing SpongeBob SquarePants: The Pilot, A Mini-Movie and The SquareShorts on DVD, including a barrage of goodies for fans of the character.

The main draw here is easily the mini-movie of the title, which is actually the 2009 extended episode Truth or Square, a thoroughly delightful and surprisingly clever affair that functions as a tenth anniversary special and features some very funny moments, along with a boatload of celebrity cameos.  Also included is the original 1999 pilot episode Help Wanted, which still holds up quite nicely after all these years.

The 42 shorts are essentially brief interstitials that ran on Nickelodeon over the years to advertise the show, and there are some amusing bits between them.  Overall, this is a fun nostalgia burst for fans, that is worth a look to whet your appetite for The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, which opens in theatres exactly one month from today.

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Pilot, A Mini-Movie and The SquareShorts is 101 minutes and rated G.
