SpongeBob and Gary is a brand-new spin-off that anyone can write for! SpongeBob becomes an inventor, but Gary proves to be smarter than him. The first episode aired on December 25, 2011 with a new episode every Christmas. The episodes are set up like movies, causing the series to win Oscars instead of Emmys. Each episode is only seen once a year (the DVDs come out New Year's Day, only a week away from Christmas). The show has been recently renewed for a sixth season after a near cancellation. Nickelodeon stated the reason why they wanted to cancel the show is because each episode takes place a year later, making fans wait too long for the next episode. However, after the popularity of the second-part of The Museum Works, Nickelodeon decided the show actually did better with each episode airing a year later. Nick decided to bring back the original series, but take it off the air every December.
