Chinatown Market recently dropped a capsule collection at Urban Outfitters that honors classic Nickelodeon cartoon series SpongeBob SquarPants.

The UO-exclusive features graphic tees and a hoodie that show off Spongebob and his best pet pal Gary the Snail in various themes. From a Nirvana-esque etching of Spongebob in black & yellow, to a tee that literally has a sponge, starfish and crab on it — a clear nod to the show’s most eccentric characters — the options to choose from are pretty on-point. If like the rest of us you want to find a cool way to show your love to Hillenburg and the hilarious gifts he gave us through ‘Bob and Co., this set of shirts makes for a fitting piece of homage. Salute, fam.
