They’ve stayed behind the scenes since their show premiered in 1999, but now the actors in the voice cast of "SpongeBob SquarePants" step before the cameras as human versions of their animated characters in this new one-hour special, which mingles live-action and animation. The story finds Patrick and SpongeBob venturing to the surface world, where they encounter familiar faces at The Trusty Slab Restaurant. David Hasselhoff, who previously played himself in "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie," guest stars, sporting his "Baywatch" lifeguard togs for some beach scenes.
