Can you believe that Spongebob Squarepants is 20 this year? Already? Geez, where did the time go?
To mark this milestone, Nickelodeon teams up with Johnny Lau, the creator of Mr Kiasu, for a commemorative coffee-table book aptly called When Mr Kiasu Meets Spongebob Squarepants.
In this 64-page full-colour book, Spongebob runs into Mr Kiasu and together, they embark on an epic road trip. Retailing at $18.90, the book and licensed merchandise – designed by homegrown company Meykrs — will be launched at this weekend’s Singapore Comic Con.
Here, Lau, 55, tells us more about the tie-up, the Spongebob-Mr Kiasu merchandise to look out for, and the one Mr Kiasu goodie that he wishes to get his hands on.
