Spongebob is the best fry cook in the world. Well, at least the best fry cook in the ocean. For more than two decades, he’s delighted the world with his antics. But how did Spongebob become the hero we know and love today? Kamp Koral: Spongebob’s Under Years is his origin story.
Before he made a living flinging Krabby Patties, Spongebob Squarepants was a plucky youth at a summer sleep away camp called Kamp Koral. The camp is run by single father Mr. Krabs, with Ms. Puff serving as one of the camp’s more popular counselors. Spongebob bunks with his lifetime pals Sandy and Patrick, and even occasionally getting chummy with Squidward.
Speaking of chum, just below the camp, Plankton and his computer wife plan world domination schemes. Strange retconning aside, it’s a prequel series every bit as charming as the original.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch Kamp Koral: Spongebob’s Under Years.
