  • Episode Description
  • Pre-Hibernation Week: Sandy is going wild over the fact that she will have to hibernate in a week. She goes crazy and takes SpongeBob on a wild adventure doing psycho events to have a lot of fun and burn carbs in a little bit of time. Life of Crime: SpongeBob and Patrick find out that you can borrow anything without permission as long as you return it, or that's what wise Mr. Krabs says. SpongeBob and Patrick want a balloon, but neither one has any money, so they "borrow" it and it pops. They decide to run away and live like criminals, because they think they're now "thieves."moreless

  • Both the episodes were pretty good but I would say that "Life of Crime" was a tad better than its first pairing in my opinion

    • Game: Parody The game "Find the Hay in the Needlestack" is a parody of "Find a Needle in the Haystack."

    • Sandy: Get up, SpongeBob, we're going flyfishing. Sandy is obviously trying to make a pun at the hobby of flyfishing with a plane and a fishing rod.
