Nickelodeon and NFL Launch Spongebob Squarepants Junkfood Collab by Artist King Saladeen
SpongeBob SquarePants has grown into a cultural institution over the past few decades, and the list of characters and catchphrases has grown in popularity. There’s no shortage of opportunities for fans to share their love for the world of SpongeBob, but it looks like a new collaboration might be a pretty great option. On Wednesday, ViacomCBS Consumer Products, Nickelodeon, the National Football League and Junk Food Clothing announced King Saladeen’s junk food collection, NFL x SpongeBob SquarePants, a new apparel collection from Philadelphia-based artist King Saladeen. The collection that hits the market today features a range of short sleeve T-shirts and hooded fleeces for SpongeBob fans of all ages.

The designs on the shirt mash-up SpongeBob – as well as his best friend Patrick Star – with the designs and logos of the NFL and their clubs. The start of the collection supports the NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon, which will air on Sunday, January 10th at 4:30/3:30 CT. Nickelodeon’s broadcast of the game will feature unique Nick-themed child-friendly content and elements, including a special half-time presentation, guest reporters and original on-field graphics, virtual filters and more.
“We’re excited to partner with Nickelodeon, Junk Food Clothing and King Saladeen to produce a clothing line,” said Rhiannon Madden, vice president of Consumer Products, NFL, in a statement. “The collection shows a unique combination of styles and inspiration that is sure to delight fans of all ages ahead of the NFL Wild Card Game at Nickelodeon.”
“The partnership between the NFL, SpongeBob SquarePants, Junk Food and King Saladeen is the best in fan culture,” added Jose Castro, senior vice president, Licensing Collaborations & Specialty Retail, ViacomCBS. “The collection channels the fun, frenetic and fantastic feelings when art, sports and pop culture collide.”
“This collaboration is the perfect blend of Art & Sports to create a brand new fan in both worlds,” said King Saladeen. “Both teach patience and teamwork while having fun. Every child has to experience this. Hopefully this will spark a new level of creativity for the next generation.”
