  • Episode Description
  • SpongeBob is going to have the best day ever. First he gets to work at the Krusty Krab. Then he is going to meet Sandy for a little Ka-Ra-Tay, followed by jellyfishing with Pat, and Squidward's clarinet recital. But the day does not go exactly as planned. Each of his friends is having a problem which SpongeBob naturally sets out to solve. But this costs him every item on his perfect agenda. When a disappointed SpongeBob realizes that his entire day has been sacrificed, his friends rally around him to give their thanks and make sure his day really is the best ever.moreless

    Trivia (8)

    • On The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie at the end, the "Best Day Ever" song was within the credits, but the episode aired much after.

    • Squidward is better than usual at playing his clarinet.

    • During the end of the episode, when SpongeBob is singing about "the perfect job starts his perfect day", the painted 'Krusty Krab' sign changes to 'K.K.' after he flips the patty.

    • When Squidward said "I suppose if you haven't fixed my clarinet, the concert would have been a bust", Sandy's tail turns white.

    • Spongebob explodes, and he comes out his door, yet his Sponge-skin is still floating in the water.

    • The Pied Piper SpongeBob lures the pests away from the Krusty Krab restaurant by playing his built-in nose-flute. This is just like the classic story about "The Pied Piper" by the Brothers Grimm.
