These Fan Recreation Episodes are Insane!
During SpongeBob Week we had scoured all over to gather the best Sponge-y content that we could find to bring to you. Unfortunatley, there was just TOO much stuff to show off.
One really great thing we kept finding but were unable to post were these amazing Fan-Made, Stop-Motion renditions of classic SpongeBob episodes and clips. Check out this shot-for-shot recreation of a clip from the episode, Nasty Patty:
