Mr. Star is a spin-off of both SpongeBob SquarePants and Mr. SquarePants. It features the titular character, Patrick Star, leaving Bikini Bottom to live life as an office drone in Ukele Bottom.
According to Stephen Hillenburg, after the controversey that Mr. SquarePants brought, he wanted to take a second shot at it, this time choosing to flesh out the Patrick character. "We wanted to do it again, but still remain true to the basics. Instead of having him mature and face mature situations, like SpongeBob did in Mr. SquarePants, we wanted Patrick to have to face mature situations without actually becoming mature." The show has been met with relatively positive reviews, and has been renewed by Nickeledeon for a third season.
