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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
