SPONGEBOB’s New Halloween Song is a Spooky Stop Motion Jam (Exclusive)

We were already planning on spending this October’s Friday the 13th in the deep, dark depths of the terrifying town of Bikini Bottom (what? we scare easy and we love Patrick, okay?), and that was before we learned it would feature a chorus of singing pirate ghosts. If we had any doubts we were going to the right place on that spookiest of days, a new song from the upcoming SpongeBob Squarepants Halloween special scared us straight.

This exclusive clip from Nickelodeon‘s upcoming stop motion special SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom, features the delightful “The Scare Song.” It accompanies SpongeBob and Patrick on a creepy theme park ride, as the Flying Dutchman’s crew of pirate ghosts try to convince the pair why they should be frightened. Although it seems to work more on Patrick than it does on SpongeBob, who smiles and giggles his way through the whole thing.

We can’t blame him for that though, because this reminds us of those classic holiday-special songs we grew up with and has us smiling, too.

“The Scare Song” was written by the show’s Mr. Lawrence, who not only voices Plankton on the series, he also wrote this Halloween special. We’ve told you before about how much work went into creating this 3D-rendition of Bikini Bottom, and in addition to giving us a sneak peek/listen to one of the new songs, this clip highlights just how gorgeous the whole thing looks.

So yeah, maybe spending Friday the 13th with SpongeBob isn’t the scariest choice we could make, but it sure is a fun one. Even if it will involve a bunch of pirate ghosts.

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Legend of Boo-Kini Bottom debuts on Nickelodeon on October 13 at 7 p.m. ET.
