Yes, we may well speak of the period of shit. After Stan Lee, Nicolas Roich, Bernardo Bertolucci and Samuel Hadida, this is another great middle name that goes out.

There are a series seemingly stupid but that hide a real depth. Series, without too much that one knows why, we catch it and do we let go never really. Needless to say, that sponge Bob is a part of it. A flagship Programme of Nickelodeon in the 2000s, our hero submarine was allowed two pranks at the cinema, in 2004 and in 2015. And behind this universe barré syndrome, there was a man, Stephen Hillenburg.

 

 

Stephen Hillenburg had to leave us at the age of 57 years died of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis that had been diagnosed in march 2017. A former professor of marine biology, he had begun his animation career by participating in the early 90s, two series of well-known enthusiasts : Rocko’s Modern Life and The Rugrats.

 

Back in 2015 and in 3D

 

It was only in 1999 that it accesses the recognition of international by creating sponge Bob, a legendary series of which it can be said that it was primarily inspired by his passion for the sea and that he does not think at all that this would do well with the comedy. Fortunately, the result has given him quickly wrong, because spongebob became a hit instant everywhere in the world, thanks to his humour, especially perched and its critical bitter-sweet of our society.

The profession does not, moreover, erred because it was awarded 9 Emmy, and a Tony Award as he had produced a musical based on his universe very recently.

 

This is a great moment in cinema. If, if…

 

Sponge Bob, this is life, this is wacky , and it may be the only place where one can see a cartoon for kids with the real Jim Jarmusch and Rob Zombie in it. We still remember the fight on the back of David Hasselhoff in the first movie, cult movie, proof, if we needed one, of the imagination of its creator.

This is still a great man, who died a few hours ago, and this is not to make you freak out, but this end of 2018 starts a little too much to look like in 2016 for our liking, when all the days we heard about the disappearance of a major personality of our journey.
