A few days ago I was flipping the channels and came across the Spongebob Squarepants episode “Atlantis” and paused for a bit. Because I have kids, I’ve seen this episode many times over the years, but now that my kids are past their Spongebob phase (Thank God) I haven’t seen it for a while.

I’ve always been amused by the homage (ripoff?) animation from “Yellow Submarine” of this epi, so I hung in. The voice of Lord Royal Highness (pictured above with Bob & Patrick) sounded British and vaguely familiar so I checked imdb.com.

It’s fucking David Bowie.

Since that moment I have known that David Bowie was happy to lend his considerable voice talents to an episode of Spongebob Squarepants but declined to record a song with Coldplay.

I’ll just leave that observation right here.

  1. Like there was even a need for posthumous reasons to make David Bowie more cool.
