In a case of art imitating today’s challenging economic world, not even the hardest working, earnest or optimistic fry cook is safe. After 14 years and billions and billions of Krabby Patty’s made and sold, SpongeBob is unceremoniously fired by greedy Mr. Krabs!

Any excuse to shamelessly plug my latest book - you know I'm going to take it. Thus, I want to alert you to "SpongeBob, You're Fired!", a brand new episode featuring the popular porous sea creature premiering next Monday, November 11th at 7pm (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. In this cartoon, SpongeBob loses his job in an attempt to build profit margins at the Krusty Krab. Unable to just "do nothing," SpongeBob decides to go back to work doing anything, anywhere. Here's a clip: 

Beginning Wednesday Nov. 6th, fans can visit to play a brand-new game, also titled SpongeBob, You're Fired. And starting now, everyone can enjoy fourteen years of hilarious artwork, paintings, scribbles, storyboards and production art - and the story behind it all - in my new hard cover, coffee table art book The Spongebob Squarepants Experience. No pineapple under the sea is complete without it. Makes a great holiday gift too. Amazon has it on sale (hint, hint).
