In a surprising twist during Super Bowl coverage, SpongeBob SquarePants didn’t hold back as he took aim at Hollywood heavyweight Leonardo DiCaprio, providing a comedic highlight for viewers tuned into Nickelodeon’s unique broadcast of the event.
While most viewers expect traditional sports commentary during the NFL’s biggest game of the year, Nickelodeon offered a refreshing alternative with its unconventional lineup. Alongside CBS Sports analyst Nate Burleson and play-by-play announcer Noah Eagle, SpongeBob and Patrick Star provided colorful commentary, with Larry the Lobster offering live analysis and Sandy Cheeks reporting from the sidelines.
Viewers were treated to a blend of sports insight and humor, with popular Nickelodeon characters like Dora the Explorer making cameo appearances. However, it was SpongeBob SquarePants’ joke at DiCaprio’s expense that stole the spotlight.
