  • Banned in Bikini Bottom was good. So why the low score?

    By Disney4life, Jul 18, 2013

  • Note: This review is only for The Battle of Bikini Bottom, the other episode was good, but The Battle of Bikini Bottom was the worst episode ever.

    • SpongeBob: You know, it's too bad. The only way to make Krabby Patties again would be if you opened a place that didn't look like a restaurant and did it secretly.
      Mr. Krabs: (running back) That's it! A secret Krusty Krab! And I know just where to open it.

    • SpongeBob: You could use a makeover, though. Ugh, look at those feet. Patrick: Why, what's wrong with them? (shows his feet are filthy)

    • SpongeBob: Aghhh!! Eww, brain juice!

    • SpongeBob: Ha! I got your nose! Patrick: Hey, give it back!

    • SpongeBob: You're a stinky, stinky sea star. I bet you could use a shot of this!! (shows deodorant spray)

    Trivia (11)

    • In 'Banned in Bikini Bottom' when Mr. Krabs first meets Miss Gristle Puss his belt is missing, but in the next scene it's back.

    • When Plankton dials the phone, it sounds like it was dialed fast. But Plankton is too small to dial a phone. He should have dialed with his legs, which are not that fast.

    • Scooter appears in "Banned In Bikini Bottom", but he died in "Bubble Buddy."

    • SpongeBob got very angry at Patrick for putting Krabby Patties on his feet, but yet in "Krabs a la Mode," everyone in the Krusty Krab was skating with patties on their feet and SpongeBob didn't get angry then. Also, Patrick skated with Krabby Patties in "Wet Painters," but he did not get mad. Possibly, it's because they weren't used as socks.

    • If one wants to keep the sales of a banned item to the buyers a secret, why did they put a sign up for all to see?
