When SpongeBob and Marge play ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ for first time in decades, ‘It was a beautiful thing’
MSNBC “Today” show host Matt Lauer and “The View” co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck discussed their favorite SpongeBob songs and a new musical for children.
Lauer said SpongeBob was “a wonderful role model to many young people in our country.”
“I’ve seen the show, and I’ve loved it, and it was a wonderful thing to see,” Hasselbs said.
Locker room banter and the “Boys don’t cry” theme is SpongeBob’s trademark.
Laughs and cheers erupted, and Hasselbbs joked that the song is “very fitting for the kids to sing.”
“It was fun to see the kids play it, because they’re so eager to be part of it,” she said.
“It’s very special, and we can’t wait to sing it with the SpongeBob team.”
SpongeBob sang “Bells and Whistles” and “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” at the Nickelodeon “Babies” premiere on July 12, 2017.
