Tomorrow, we will kick off a four-day stretch of new releases we are excitedly referring to as NICK WEEK! In 1991, Nickelodeon began airing a collection of original animated series known as “Nicktoons,” and if you grew up in the '90s, these shows likely permeated your TV screens just like they did ours. This week, we will celebrate a few of these seminal shows with posters, pins, and a statue, each featuring artwork by a handful of incredible artists.
We’re proud to kick things off tomorrow celebrating Bikini Bottom’s favorite son, SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS, with a poster by Drake Brodahl! This is our first time working with Drake and we couldn’t be happier with the final result. In addition to Drake’s poster, we’ll also have enamel pins of SpongeBob’s Pineapple house on 124 Conch St., as well as Chum Bucket’s founder and seeker of the Krabby Patty secret formula, Plankton!
Each product release will be available at 12PM (CT) starting Tuesday (2/27) and running through Friday (3/2) this week on our site. Be sure to follow us on Twitter @MondoNews for the on sale announcements!

"Working with Mondo and Nickelodeon on this SpongeBob poster was a dream come true. Mondo is so exciting because they continue to push the medium and redefine the art of the movie poster. We artists are given a real creative voice without the potential constraints of designing a commercial one-sheet for theatrical release. The purpose isn't commerce, the purpose is to make art!
"Initially, I worried about how to go about paying proper tribute to SpongeBob because he is such an icon, but then realized the power of his icon allows you freedom to do almost anything! I really wanted to incorporate the Bikini Bottom neighborhood houses in some way and thought it might be a fun idea to pay a nautical homage to the queen of fruit hats, Carmen Miranda. SpongeBob naturally embodies that playful spirit, so thematically they work well together." - Dave Brodahl
