Comic-Con: SpongeBob SquarePants

It was Christmas in July at the "SpongeBob SquarePants" panel, with most of the hour devoted to breaking down the stop-motion animated special due out at the end of this year.

Actors Tom Kenny and Bill Fagerbakke performed a scene live in front of the audience, synchronized to an animatic. Seamus Walsh and Mark Caballero of stop-motion animation company Screen Novelties presented a behind-the-scenes look at what went into making the puppets and sets (real Fruity Pebbles were involved). After the concept-through-production analysis, a completed scene was presented to the audience.

The panel ended with an audience singalong, led by Kenny, of "Don't Be a Jerk, It's Christmas," from the special.

During the Q&A, it was also revealed that the "SpongeBob" team is in the early planning stages of a new feature film, but that would still be years off.
