Patrick Star, SpongeBob's neighbor who is a starfish, is your average children's show idiot, as he boasts knowing nothing and is often getting himself into ridiculous situations. Between the homes of these two lies the home of the miserable Squidward, a squid, who is known for being grouchy and playing tricks on SpongeBob and Patrick. Both SpongeBob and Squidward work at the Krusty Krab,a fast food business run by the greedy money-loving Mr. Krabs, a crab, the arch rival of the evil, possibly misunderstood, Plankton. Another neighbor, Sandy Cheeks, an athletic squirrel who normally wears an astronaut's space suit, was introduced in "Tea at the Treedome." She spends most of her time inventing and experimenting.  * Anyone interested in the Chum Bucket??  It's just around the corner...  The background is accompanied with two cel overlays. * * Original Production Background and Animated Cel Overall Size of Background: 10 1/2" x 21 1/4" Overall Size of the Cels: 10 1/2" x 20 1/2" Very good condition; it has been storedrolledThis is an original hand-painted cel set-up used in the production of an episode of "SpongeBob SquarePants." Each one-of-a-kind set-up represents a slight change in position of the characters. When individually photographed and projected in rapid succession, the images appear to move. * To create production cels, the original animator's drawing is transferred onto an acetate cel (by hand-inking and/or photo copying). The cel is then hand-painted on the reverse side.  The background accompanying this set-up is a hand-painted original production background. * The background and cel are ready to be matted and framed.  It is a colored background with a cel and has the animator's notations at the bottom of the background. *
