Sponge Bob evicted from French ocean

He may live in a pineapple under the sea, but Sponge Bob Square Pants will have to find a new home after plans to place giant statues of the cartoon character in the sea off one of France’s top natura

Nickelodeon, the US children’s television network, wanted to place several four-metre statues under water off the Calanques – deep narrow inlets noted for their biodiversity – near the southern city of Marseille.


The idea was that children would be able to see them when they took diving lessons in the area, Thierry Reboul of the public relations agency working for Nickelodeon on the project, said Wednesday.


But the plan was scrapped after local activists opposed it, arguing that the site should not be used for marketing purposes, particularly for a giant pants-wearing sponge.
