Another loss in the world of entertainment—as the creator of a beloved cartoon character died this week…..
Stephen Hillenburg—who was the mastermind behind Spongebob Squarepants and the “under the sea” world of Bikini Bottom—died this week at the age of 57.
He had been diagnosed with ALS last year.
Nickelodeon says his characters will long stand as a reminder of the value of optimism, friendship—and the limitless power of imagination. (photo credit–Modern Notoriety)
