EW Exclusive: A first look at the SpongeBob SquarePants wedding!

Admittedly, I don’t keep up with SpongeBob SquarePants the way I do with, say, Lost or Medium or Melrose Place. But this exclusive clip from Truth or Square, a one-hour special airing Nov. 6, 8:00 p.m. EDT, on Nickelodeon, has me wondering if maybe I should. I mean, seriously, SpongeBob getting married to Sandy? A primitive multicellular beastie betrothed to a squirrel? I can’t say I saw these nuptials coming!

Fortunately, a Nickelodeon publicist sent me a release putting the ceremony in context. Truth or Square — narrated by Ricky Gervais and featuring Rosario Dawson, Craig Ferguson, Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, LeBron James, Pink, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and Robin Williams — will piece together never-before-seen flashbacks of SpongeBob and his pals after they get trapped inside Krusty Krab’s freezer during the restaurant’s “eleventy seventh” birthday. And apparently, the SpongeBob-Sandy ceremony is one of the Very Special Moments being revisited for the first time. Press play below for a glimpse of a moony-eyed SpongeBob in love. You may never look at Bikini Bottom the same way again.

    Just a heads up, the squirrel’s name is Sandy, not Wendy. Hope that helps!

    • lisa

      Wendy? Who said her name is Wendy?

      • allie

        if you read some of the comments below someone called her wendy

    • dabubster

      This is a flashback? how could this be a flashback? in recent episodes spongebob and sandy never even looked at each other. maby they could fall in love in the movie but if this is a flash back then im pissed.

      • sponge+squirrel=?

        i wonder wut sponges son/daughter will sound like: “Howdy! dyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeye”

    • bubbez

      just asking, where does it say wendy?

    • Fallena

      Yay! cant wait to see the whole show on nov 6!!! <3

    • Mark

      Awwwww! Look at Spongebob’s eyes. He’s so happy. I never would have guessed that Spongebob was in love with Sandy.

    • Ed Sebele

      Wait, Vincent? Like Vincent Waller? Like the Vincent Waller who appeared in the credits just as the show started down hill? If it is, no offense but I liked the show when Drymon was the creative director, but not with Waller. I’m not saying it’s you. I just have to wonder if whoever’s bright idea this was also decided to make Squidward ink… >:(
      I just want to say that I’m not impressed.

  • liz

    The squirrel’s name is Sandy.

    • Nicole


    • Rick

      l cant belive spongebob kissed wendy!

      • lily smith

        its sandy

  • Nerwen Aldarion

    I don’t know whether to laugh over this or actually aww over it! So cute, I used to watch spongebob when I was young so it is a cherished part of my childhood (Albiet one I’ll NEVER admit to!) The sad thing is that I actually expected this!

    FYI it is Sandy not Wendy, I haven’t watched the show in YEARS and I still remembered that

  • Em

    Finally — after all these years of simmering sexual tension and longing glances over the crabby patty grill, Spandy are a couple!

    • Claire

      Ha ha ha! Spandy, I love it! My first child was born the same year Spongebob premiered, so Spongebob is a part of our household. I don’t think a day goes by where we don’t quote that show somehow. Spandy… still chuckling…

      • andrewstribling@yahoo.com


    • Mandy

      Hahaha! Can’t wait to see what the kids will look like!

      • chelsea

        it is not actually their wedding you know their playing a part in a play at the bikini bottom theater. the sceen ends with a stage light nearly falling and hitting spongebob and sandy. buit they could still acutally get married… OH AND ITS SANDY NOT WENDY!!

    • gigi

      Oh no you didn’t ‘cute couple’ their name!! I love it! Spandy 4 Ever!!

  • Kristen

    AWWW! I love that they’re getting married. Adorable.

  • amanda

    I always thought he didn;t swing that way

  • Joey

    I thought Spongebob was an asexual…?

  • lolsx

    awww!! thatsx adorable

  • Carla

    I’m confused…I was sure Spongebob and Patrick were a couple, especially after they adopted that baby clam :)

    • Ashley

      I actually thought that too! lol cute episode though. my nephew loved it.

    • Abigail

      hahaha. that was a good episode. but yeah.

    • STACY

      actually it was Patrick & Spongebob.

      • El men

        ehh, no

    • Alisa

      very funny

  • Danielle

    I’m just shock I didn’t even see that coming. my eye went big and my mouth is open.

    • Nicole

      I feel that same way!!!when i saw this on a commertial i cudnt close my mouth…nd i tried!

      • bubbez

        omg me 2!!!!!!

  • Derby

    Please. This is a marriage of animated convenience if I ever saw one.

    • Stacie

      LOL big time

  • Marissa

    This is absolutely adorable! I just love their eyes! It’s about time Spongey found love! Man, I grew up with this show. I’ve always thought Spandy would make a great couple but I never imagined it would get this far!

  • Sam

    I do not accept this. Spongebob has done everything but carry a rainbow flag and now he’s marrying a female mammal? This is just sad. I used to actually be a fan of this show (sadly), but then they started heavily censoring it and I dropped out. Sorry, Squarecheeks, maybe next time.

    • crys

      well, i am sure glad it is “censored”, the show is geered toward children not stoners

    • KayCee71

      Perhaps to appeal to the “left”, SpongeBob’s 1st love, Patrick, will shack up with Squidward. Think of all the jellyfish that will be “milked” for that relationship… Eesh!

  • Rachel

    Do not want Spongebob and Sandy to get married. I think it will definitely make the show weird, and detract from it’s charm.

    Do want: continuation of Spongebob and Patrick’s gay escapades; the lamest yet most endearing friendship on this earth.

    • Sparkington

      Spongebob and Patrick are not gay. What on earth would be “charming” about that? They’re buddies, like kids playing together.

    • Val

      This is the end of SB. nick always does this. once you get a special like this, it’s lights out forever to the show.

      • Anonymous

        Strange that actually makes sense…

    • Nicole

      that is the same xact way i feel

  • gsaintl

    LOVED “Spandy”!!

    The REAL question after seeing the bride in her wedding gown is…

    will SpongeBob be getting any tail!! LMAO!!
