The popular

SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick

have materialized off the screens.

The photo of a sea sponge and a starfish in eastern New York has gone viral.

And how could it be otherwise, it was a group of scientists who found them "Under the sea ...".

The snapshot was published by Christopher Mah, who works for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on his Twitter account: "I usually avoid these references, but ... WOW. The real SpongeBob and Patrick!"

"As a biologist who specializes in starfish," Mah explained to

Business Insider,

"most of the portrayals of Patrick and SpongeBob are wrong, but I thought it would be fun to make the comparison, because, for once, they are comparable to the iconic images and colors of cartoon characters. "

SpongeBob SquarePants

is a television series created by cartoonist and marine biologist Stephen Hillenburg.

It premiered on Nickelodeon on May 1, 1999. It tells the life of a marine sponge named Bob who among his friends has a marine star named Patrick.

It seems that, on this occasion, the fiction has become real.
