SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Welcome to the Chum Bucket/Frankendoodle)

Did you know that Mr. Krabs and Plankton get together to play cards once a week? Because according to this episode, they do! That's actually pretty cute. The episode makes their card games sound shady, what with Mr. Krabs only playing because he knows Plankton is a terrible card player, and Plankton apparently throwing games … Continue reading SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Welcome to the Chum Bucket/Frankendoodle)

SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Shanghaied/Gary Takes a Bath)

This is the first episode that the Flying Dutchman actually has a big part in, and the first time we're seeing him since the Halloween episode back in season 1. It starts with a giant anchor dropping down into SpongeBob's house... and then suddenly moving to hit Squidward's house. Squidward decides he's going to climb … Continue reading SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Shanghaied/Gary Takes a Bath)

SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Pressure/The Smoking Peanut)

Sorry this post is so delayed. It's been a long couple of weeks of packing and travelling and getting over jetlag and visiting people and job hunting and trying to find a few hours to myself somewhere in between all of this. Things should be getting back to something resembling normalcy soon, at least. This … Continue reading SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Pressure/The Smoking Peanut)

SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Mermaidman and Barnacle Boy III/Squirrel Jokes)

"Why is this episode named after Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy if they're only in the episode for like a minute?" - Everyone at some point Yeah, so, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy are barely in this episode. At the beginning of the episode, we see them heading off on a trip and for whatever reason … Continue reading SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Mermaidman and Barnacle Boy III/Squirrel Jokes)

SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Survival of the Idiots/Dumped)

I'd like to think that this episode is a followup to Prehibernation Week, since its plot revolves around a hibernating Sandy, but it's pretty clear that there is no connection between the two and it's coincidence that they came in the same season and so close together. The episode begins with SpongeBob and Patrick going … Continue reading SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Survival of the Idiots/Dumped)

SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Prehibernation Week/Life of Crime)

One of the reasons I love season 2 so much is because I think it has Sandy's best characterization by far. Plus, she gets to be in more episode this season than she does in most other seasons, which is still not that many but it's something. Sandy was likable and charming in season 1, … Continue reading SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Prehibernation Week/Life of Crime)

SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Grandma’s Kisses/Squidville)

Let's just jump right into this one. We see that SpongeBob's grandmother tends to treat SpongeBob like a baby, as is typical for grandmothers to do, I suppose. SpongeBob actually enjoys it, but after being made fun of rather viciously for it by Squidward and some guys at the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob decides that he has to … Continue reading SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Grandma’s Kisses/Squidville)

SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Big Pink Loser/Bubble Buddy)

Episodes that are very Patrick-centric are not my favorite thing. This episode isn't an exception, but is probably the Patrick-centric episode that I enjoy the most. It centers around Patrick wanting to win an award, for anything. When he sees SpongeBob's huge collection of awards and trophies, Patrick just wants to feel like a winner … Continue reading SpongeBob Reviews: Season 2 (Big Pink Loser/Bubble Buddy)
