February 07, 2007
Posted on Tuesday, February 06, 2007 at 20:35:52 KISS' Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed dropped by the Nicktoons Studios in Burbank, CA this week to voice act on an upcoming episode of Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants called “20,000 Patties Under the Sea.” In the episode, Simmons will voice the role of the menacing Sea Monster who is fed Krabby Patties by SpongeBob and Patrick in attempts to keep his anger at bay. Tweed plays the Sea Monster’s mother who comes to her son’s defense after being insulted by Plankton. While developing the episode, executive producer and KISS fan Paul Tibbitt felt Simmons’ voice would be perfect for the role. Simmons agreed and brought Tweed on the project. "I was born for this part. I've been waiting all my life to be a Sea Monster. It's in my blood. It's what I do. It's my job. SpongeBob is jealous, as well he should be. I was brilliant," said Simmons. “20,000 Patties Under the Sea” will air on Nickelodeon in 2008. The Gene Simmons Family Jewels (A&E) TV crew also filmed the record for posterity, when the 2nd season debuts with 20 all-new episodes in the spring. Gene Simmons added on his official website: "Our Gene Simmons Family Jewels TV crew followed myself and Miss Tweed to shoot the Nickelodeon voice over work we did for SpongeBob SquarePants. Miss Tweed played a Sea Mom. And I played, Sea Monster. (...Really???? You're kidding.) You'll see all the fun and games when you tune in our show in the spring."
