Ten Short Segments About SpongeBob Squarepants

In the Nein reviews, I have two films left to go over (and there’s another 2015 release I caught that I’m hoping to toss a review for this week). One of them is The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water and the other is Predestination. Honestly, I feel I want to take another look at Predestination before I say anything other than OH MY FUCK, SARAH SNOOK IS THE BOMB DIGGITY, so it should be obvious that my next review tonight will be The SpongeBob Movie.

Before I do, I just obviously address something. The SpongeBob Movie, like its 2004 theatrical predecessor, is obviously a film that is created with the target of the previous audience members of the hit television series since it premiered on Nickelodeon in 1999. I having been either 6 or 7 when the show premiered and struggling to enter the maelstrom of American youth culture am totally one of those people who watched the show.

And moreso, I loved what I saw. At least until I stopped watching around the middle of the 00s (the common consensus is that the series has lost its irreverent wacky yet endearing touch by that point anyway). But since I look back on the series, I figure not everybody is a fan of SpongeBob like I am and so, if I may, I would like to plant a recommendation in the form of my top ten favorite SpongeBob Squarepants segments (there is usually two per episode). A bit of pre-review viewing for the folks.

10. Frankendoodle – Because now when I go crazy I make the same noises as Frankendoodle.

9. Dying for Pie – Because ideas like pirates selling bomb pies make me want what the writers were smoking.

8. Sailor Mouth – It’s not a surprise that one of my favorites would be the one that deals with *dolphin noise*ing cursing.

7. Mid-Life Crustacean – It’s totally that I’m feeling it.

6. Pizza Delivery – It’s the pizza for you and me.

5. Band Geeks – Any episode with Squilliam means some fantastic shit is happening, but this is situational humor of the most flexible kind.

4. Squilliam Returns – Like I said… Squilliam means good shit coming.

3. Chocolate with Nuts – Odds are you’ve already heard about this but let me remind you.

2. Idiot Box – This is honestly among the more fantastic episodes for how earnest and light-hearted Spongebob can prove to be. Encouraging youth, frivolity, and IMAAAAGINATION! (another episode I didn’t have room to add, but would suggest is Bubblestand for the same reason)

1. Graveyard Shift – Yeah, ok, it’s how obviously spooky it is, but most of all, it is the final gag that makes me think it’s the best thing ever.

Alright, GET TO IT. See you tonight.
