  • Episode Description
  • Ditchin': Mermaidman and Barnacleboy are having a book signing, but SpongeBob can't go because he has boating school. After some convincing, Patrick finally gets SpongeBob to take a bathroom break from - a really long one - so they can go to the signing. But the day turns sour when SpongeBob becomes racked with guilt about ditching Dear Vikings: There's a new Viking-themed promotion at the Krusty Krab, so SpongeBob is determined to find out everything there is to know about Vikings. Since there's no better way to find out about Vikings than to communicate with them directly, SpongeBob writes a letter to the Vikings, and is surprised when they visit the Krusty Krab to answer his questions in person.moreless

  • Two enjoyable episodes to watch BUT I thought "Ditchin'" was a little better than "Dear Vikings"

  • Quotes (8)

    • SpongeBob: Lady, if you don't let go off of me, I'm going to turn into a criminal! (runs off) Lady Fish: (sad and about to cry) That sounded like a threat. Blue Fish: (hugs Lady Fish) I am so sorry.

    • Gray Fish: It's a shame what happened to Dale. We were classmates back in Boating School. He used to be a good student, until he started cutting class. Ever since then, he's led the lonely life of a criminal. SpongeBob: C-C-C-CRIMINAL?!

    • Police Fish: Quasi Gummy Chewy Candy Fish. Is this how you have fun? By eating your own kind? (Dale laughs nervously) Police Fish: Scum like you make me sick. CUFF HIM!

    • Police Fish: Not today, yellow. You've been playing with a convicted felon, and we know he's violated his parole somehow. You might as well confess, Dale. Dale: Hey, man! I haven't done nothing! Police Fish: Oh, yeah? What have you got in there?

    • SpongeBob: Bikini Bottom hug fest? Female Fish:(aproaches SpongeBob and hugs him) Don't fight the love, kid.

    Trivia (11)

    • In "Dear Vikings," when SpongeBob, Squidward and the vikings crashed into an iceberg, the dragon thing from the boat breaks. But when SpongeBob makes the boat get up, it's back on.

    • There were torches and a fire on the ship, but they're underwater.

    • Most of the viking's names were Olaf. In the episode "Bubble Buddy," if you look closely in the menu, you'll see a combo called "Captain Olaf's Special".

    • In the episode "Ditchin'", it shows a part of the new Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy origin comic book with a man resembling Barnacle Boy and a woman resembling Mermaid Man in a spaceship. The woman had two children in her arms which resembled Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, so it may conclude to the fact that Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy might be brothers, but in other episodes, they act like friends.

    • In ''Ditchin','' SpongeBob says that he has Boating School at 8:00, but in ''New Student Starfish,'' Boating School starts at 9:00.
