Lately, Nickelodeon discussed plans to expand the SpongeBob universe into spin-offs. And now a spin-off called Kamp Koral is officially on the way, which chronicles a 10-year old SpongeBob at summer camp. Also it's CG-animated.

If this happened back when I was a kid, I would have been super hyped. The retracing of SpongeBob's childhood is an interesting concept I'll admit, but that's something that can easily be covered in a special episode. After all, we didn't need a whole spin-off to explain the origin to Mr. Krabs and Plankton's rivalry - Friend or Foe did the job just right.

Not to mention that the third SB movie It's a Wonderful Sponge apparently already has a segment where the characters meet for the first time at summer camp - described as "a magical moment that brings meaning to the power of true friendship". My guess is that they want to expand on that one idea. 

Also, there's The Camping Episode, which is one of my favorite episodes in the series. The Campfire Song Song is still stuck in my head this very day.

That aside, I was going to give this spin-off a chance. But then I did some digging, and...well, here's where it gets disappointing.

Ever wondered why there haven't been any SB spin-offs before? Apparently, Stephen Hillenburg never wanted spin-offs and was against the idea of SpongeBob being aged down. In fact, he almost abandoned the project when Nick demanded the character be a child attending school. He ultimately made a compromise by having SpongeBob remain an adult and go to boating school. Even Paul Tibbitt, Steve's right hand man, had this to say in regards the recent announcement:
I do not mean any disrespect to my colleagues who are working on this show. They are good people and talented artists. But this is some greedy, lazy executive-ing right here, and they ALL know full well Steve would have HATED this. Shame on them.
So not only is this concept unnecessary, but it goes against everything Steve wanted from the show. This is a new low for the network, but at this point I can't say I'm surprised.100 Themes v2 - Shame 
Back to Kamp Koral, it has been picked up for 13 episodes, so it must be an experimental thing. Personally, I don't think it will last; it'll probably just be Nick's version of Baby Looney Tunes or Yo Yogi! - a mediocre spin-off of popular characters aged down. Maybe young kids will watch it (no problem with that), but the older fans who know better would probably rather stick to the original and respect Steve's legacy.
You can only fill up a glass so much before it spills.

Besides, if you want a cartoon about a happy-go-lucky camper, watch Camp Lazlo, which borrows many of SB's elements due to sharing some of the same staff and voice actors. 

As much as I still love SB, I'd prefer if they brought back Harvey Beaks instead.
