On February 3rd, 2019, the NFL hosted its annual Super Bowl game in Atlanta. As usual, football fans were anticipating the event, but many other non-sports fans enjoy tuning in for the halftime show—especially since the Saints weren’t playing. The 2019 Super Bowl show featured Maroon 5 and guest appearances by Travis Scott and Big Boi.

This year the halftime show was even more anticipated than usual with a rumored special appearance by beloved cartoon character Spongebob Squarepants in response to a popular online petition requesting his presence. (Over a million people signed it!) In the time leading up to the Super Bowl, there was internet buzz surrounding the halftime show and whether or not the people behind these promises would follow through.

However, many Spongebob fans were disappointed with the sponge’s lack of screen time and the quick transition into Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode.” Many took to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction with the half time show and the fact that “Sweet Victory,” a song from the Bubble Bowl episode of Spongebob, was not included in the show. Many felt that this clip was not enough to honor the memory of the show’s longtime creator Stephen Hillenburg who died in November, while others felt that the short appearance that Spongebob and his marching band made was a sweet, sweet victory in and of itself.

Overall, it was a very interesting half time show, to say the least.
