Good morning, 

Rodger Bumpass, the voice of Squidward Tentacles on the Nickelodeon TV show SpongeBob SquarePants, revealed he will announce the entertainment at the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show. 

Bumpass posted on Facebook telling SpongeBob fans to tune into the Super Bowl to hear Squidward introduce the halftime entertainment, which is headlined by Maroon 5.

Fans of Spongebob Squarepants requested an iconic performance of “Sweet Victory” from the show as a tribute to Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of the show who died in 2018. 

Between Bumpass’ announcement and the cameo appearance of SpongeBob SquarePants in Maroon 5’s Super Bowl performance preview, fans are getting excited about the tribute.
