There also appears to be a comedy program featuring a live-action royal gramma in one episode. The most well-known TV-talking food-critic in Bikini Bottom is Gene Scallop, a reference to his own voice actor Gene Shalit. In the episode Whatever Happened To SpongeBob? it is indicated that Bikini Bottom is in the New Kelp City television viewing market due to the fact that near the end there was a slide with "KNKC" on it reporting New Kelp City news.
