ORLANDO, Florida –
Nickelodeon, the TV network behind the popular animated series Spongebob Squarepants, announced this week that after nearly 20 years, the show would be going off the air.
“It’s been a long ride, and we are very grateful,” read a tweet posted by the show’s official page. They also posted an imaging of a crying Spongebob.
The show has been a phenomenon of epic proportions for almost 2 decades, and the news struck many young adults directly in the nostalgia section of their heart.
“This is the worst thing that has ever happened in my life,” said one Facebook user. “If it came down to whether or not to keep Spongebob on the air, or bring my Grandfather back from the dead, I’d keep Spongebob.”
