Revelers lather up for Par

'SpongeBob' floats on sea of welcome

HOLLYWOOD — Revelers soaked up the atmosphere at the “SpongeBob SquarePants” preem at the Hollywood Palladium Sunday afternoon.

“SpongeBob” creator Stephen Hillenburg, who seemed a bit awestruck about how big his sudsy yellow creation has grown, says the slew of family-friendly pics out there will help “SpongeBob” at the box office.

“This tide will float all boats in animation,” he said.

Those enjoying the tropical cuisine included Jodie Foster, Ray Romano and “SpongeBob” voices Jeffrey Tambor, Clancy Brown plus the voice of “SpongeBob,” Tom Kenny.
