Geodesic Domes in the Media

Spongebob Squarepants

Spongebob Squarepants is a popular cartoon that entertains a wide variety of viewers. The show is about the life of a sponge and his sea creature friends as they encounter underwater adventures on a day to day basis. Two of the main characters in the cartoon, Patrick Star (starfish) and Sandy Cheeks (squirrel), live in a dome shaped houses. Patrick's dome home is a more basic structure than Sandy's, as his is just a oval shaped brown rock. However, Sandy's dome could actually support human life and follows the idea of independent sustainability that Fuller was so fond of.

Many of the dome shape contraptions can be found on some schools playgrounds. Most of the time the dorms are very colorful and usually made of a metal to keep it sturdy and secured into the ground.

Punk Music 

The Misfits

 Sebastian and Jared are both fans of The Misfits in The House of Tomorrow. The Misfits are a punk rock band that was first organized in 1977 New Jersey. They are known for being one of the spearheading bands of the punk rock movement and beginning what is now thought of as the "Horror Punk" genre. Some of their more famous songs include "Horror Business" and "Night of the Living Dead", although success in the punk rock genre is not shown by album or single sales, but by obscure 'cult' favorites. After a breakup from 1983-1995, The Misfits have gotten back together and, much to the happiness of their 'Fiend Club', are still going strong.
