Nickelodeon has officially given us a sneak-peek into a SpongeBob Squarepants spin-off show. The Patrick Star Show will be based on a younger Patrick Star who lives at home with his family. Uniquely, the cartoon will be set as a sitcom where Patrick hosts his own late-night talk show from his bedroom.

I guess you could say he will be the ‘star’ of the show. (aha, very good)

From the image released by Nickelodeon, we get a look at Patrick’s parents, sister and grandpa.

The press release revealed that the characters will be Cecil Star, Patrick’s fun-loving, happy-go-lucky dad, Bunny Star, Patrick’s sea star, kooky mum; Squidina Star, Patrick’s eight-year-old little sister who sees herself as Patrick’s executive producer for his imaginary TV show; and GrandPat Star, Patrick’s genius grandpa.

The show is set to be released in the US summer, so hopefully it will hit our screens in the Australian winter.
