DVD Review: SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom

September 18, 2018

By John Corrado

A Halloween special done in the same stop-motion style as the delightful Christmas special It’s a SpongeBob Christmas! from a few years back, SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom is now available on DVD after making its broadcast premiere last year.

The story centres around SpongeBob (Tom Kenny), who doesn’t want to be spooked on Halloween and takes to heart Patrick’s (Bill Fagerbakke) motto that “scary equals funny,” until an encounter with the Flying Dutchman (Brian Doyle-Murray) that puts his friends in danger proves him wrong.

The stop-motion animation, which is once again overseen by co-directors Mark Caballero and Seamus Walsh, is well done, and gives the episode an appealing tactical feel. For fans of SpongeBob, The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom works as an amusing and offbeat Halloween special that has some fun reimagining the 2D characters in a different way, and for everyone else it’s an odd little curiosity that is worth checking out.

The DVD also includes the two very short featurettes Behind the Scenes: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom and The Art of SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom.

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom is a Paramount Home Media Distribution release. It’s 23 minutes and rated PG.
