SpongeBob SquarePants Balloon Gets a Makeover for Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

SpongeBob SquarePants is one of the most popular animated kids television programs out there. The annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is entering its 87th year, and is one of the premier parades in all of world. There has been a SpongeBob SquarePants balloon in the parade since 2004.

The SpongeBob balloon is getting a upgrade ahead of the 87th annual Thanksgiving day parade being held on Thursday, November 28 in New York City. The balloon promises a fresh and more vivid look. The balloon was involved in a bit of engineering incorporating 800 tie lines inside the single chamber sphere getting the round balloon into SpongeBob's classic square shape.

I can only imagine the courts of lines running around inside the balloon making it square. The new SpongeBob balloon is 44 feet tall, 41 feet long, and 34 feet wide. SpongeBob SquarePants debuted in July 1999 and has been the most watched animated program for kids aged 2 to 11 for more than 12 consecutive years.
