Kamp Koral: Paramount+ Shares SpongeBob SquarePants Prequel Opener

With CBS All Access making the change to Paramount+ as of this past Thursday, the ViacomCBS streaming service has been celebrating by offering viewers opportunities to check out premiere episodes of a number of shows, both new and established on the streamer. On the new front comes Nickelodeon and Paramount+'s CG-animated prequel series Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years and a look at how the gang was back before we really got to know them. In the following episode, SpongeBob SquarePants is determined to catch his first jellyfish, so his friends do whatever they can to help him. Of course, what's considered "help" is in the eye of the beholder (to get a little poetic).
