  • If I knew that a 24 hour marathon of Spongebob was leading up to this pitiful mess, I would have spent those 24 hours writing a better episode special of Spongebob than what the writers came up with

    This was really a disappointment in more ways than one. Spongebob Squarepants Best Day Ever turned out to be not only a letdown, but a big waste of time for everyone out there. Nickelodeon constantly hyped this episode up as one of the best episodes of Spongebob ever, and to celebrate they had a 24 hour marathon. I never saw the full marathon but I decided to see this episode anyway to see it, and it was truly disappointing. The episode is about Spongebob having his best day ever like working at the Krusty Krab, karate with Sandy, playing with Patrick, and seeing Squidward's clarinet recital. Now the problem is this though, Spongebob does this all the time. He always goes to work, plays with Patrick, Karate with Sandy, and see Squidward. So what makes this day so special at all? It's just Spongebob's daily routine, but it's somehow special and never explained at all. The song is just terrible. I didn't mind the sing the first few times, but it kept going again and again that will cause you to mute the TV or jam an ice pick through your ears. To top it all off, the episode is only 11 MINUTES LONG! Are you really serious Nick? You hyped this one episode up and this is the reward to those who love Spongebob? An 11 minute episode only? This was just not only a big fat letdown on all levels, but a waste of time for everyone. I feel sorry for those who wasted 24 hours just to see a pitiful and appalling episode, and whoever came up with this needs to be fired.
