Plankton/Larry the Lobster/Other Voices
SpongeBob SquarePants/Gary/Mr. SquarePants/Narrator/Various Others
For some odd reason, Nickelodeon airs this special more often than the rest of the other specials in the series.
It would be just a tad odd that SpongeBob wouldn't do so well in the seahorse tournament because before, he rode Mystery, who was also a seahorse, just fine.
It's possible that the adventure SpongeBob and Patrick go through is based on the plot for the original Super Mario Bros. game. For example, SpongeBob has to travel to Planktonimars castle and rescue Princess Pearl, a possible reference to Mario going to Bowser's castle to save Princess Peach.
Sandy's relatives came from Texas, so what is with medieval Sandy?
When the peasant shouts, "Not the Bowling Alley!" he is wearing a blue outfit, however, in the next shot when the giant jellyfish moves away, the peasant's outfit is orange.
How could they have sent SpongeBob and Patrick to the guillotine since it wasn't invented until the French Revolution?
How can The Dark Knight, aka Medieval Sandy, breathe if she isn't wearing her air helmet?
When the knights came to arrest SpongeBob and Patrick for witchcraft (falling out of the sky) the talking knight's outfit was orange. But after SpongeBob complimented the spears they had, the head knight's outfit was green.
The head knight in orange is still present, however, a different knight in green addressed SpongeBob and Patrick. These are two different knights.
King Krabs learned how to make Krabby Patties from Spongebob. Then later passed down generations to the present Mr. Krabs.
Squidly put a curse on his legacy, great great great grandson: Squidward. Which explains why Squidward has such bad luck.
(guard plucks one of SpongeBob's eyelashes)
Guard: Make a wish.
Planktonimor: Prepare to taste my wrath!
SpongeBob: (laughs) Tiny powers!
SpongeBob: Thank Neptune it was just a dream, right, Patrick?
Patrick: Ya, try tellin' that to Squidly.
(Get up, Squidly's flat like a pancake, clarinet is crushed and makes squeaky sound)
Squidly: (singing) Hark, the princess, she screams from the tower. By the sound of her screams this is her final hour.
King Krab: I doth wonder if I couldst sell these, hmm... (Ching Ching) Krabby Patties?
King Krab: (to SpongeBob, Patrick, and Squidly) Good luck, strange ones!
Squidly: I was the King's favorite fool. I made merry mirth and laughter. Then, I told one bad joke, and the King had a stroke. Now I hang from ye olde rafter.
Plankton: Curses, you win.
(Squidward is once again confronted with the biggest jellyfish ever and tries to escape pain-free...)
Squidlly: There once was a dragon so handsome and smart; he let me go free 'cause he had a big heart!
Squidlly: Everybody beth a critic.
Plankton: Soon, the King's village will be mine, mine, MINE!
SpongeBob: Didn't you hear that, Patrick? I told ya she screams like a squirrel!
Princess Pearl: Father, you must save them; have you forgotten of the prophecy?
King Krab: No, what prophecy?
Princess Pearl: The one right above your head!
(the camera zooms out to show three enormous stained glass windows taking up the entire wall behind the king's throne)
SpongeBob: Don't you see, Patrick, we really are in Medieval Times.
Patrick: Oh, I think I left the water running at home!
SpongeBob: How's your mutton, Patrick?
Patrick: Me thinks it's mutton-tastic.
King Krabs: What's this? Another part of the prophecy?
SpongeBob: Let me guess - more praise for our manly statures?
King Krabs: Actually, it says here that I'm supposed to kick you out.
SpongeBob: Don't worry! We manly knights are so manly we kick ourselves out! C'mon Patrick! (kicks himself out of the picture)
Patrick: Look out, trouble.
(Patrick does the same)
Waiter: Right this way.
SpongeBob: Excuse me, but I believeth you meanteth to say, "Righteth this way-eth!" (giggles)
Waiter: (holds his spear up to his throat, gulps, and then puts it down) Some day, but not today.
Squidward: (has just been hurt) Oweth.
Squidly: (singing) Oh hear me king for I must sing how you are the greatest at everything. Like letting a dragon burn down our city, a horrible sight that wasn't pretty, t'was all your fault and t'is a pity. You were bad you are to blame, now hang your kingly head in shame. (shaked his butt at King Krabs)Nanananananananananana.(Spongebob and Patrick giggled and joined in)The king is bad the king's to blame, he hangs his kingly head in shame. Nanananananananananananananananana!
Squidward: (Singing) Oh, Dark Knight, spare us please. Don't cut off our heads or boil our knees. (Points at Spongebob and Patrick) Paytake these two and let me go free, and I will give to thee some... (Pulls out cheese) cheese!
Patrick: I'll miss you SpongeBob
SpongeBob: I'll miss you too,buddy. (both start crying)
Spongebob: I must fulfill the prophecy, while you untie Patrick and the Royal Doofus.
Squidly: That's "Royal Fool."
SpongeBob: The boys back home are not going to believe this.
Patrick: I'm right here and I don't believe it!
Nicktoons Network airdate: December 10, 2008
SpongeBob and Patrick were never meant to be the ones who go to save the town from Planktonimor. Actually, it was another sponge and starfish, who were stronger than SpongeBob and Patrick. However, for some unknown reason, this scene was later cut from the episode and had never aired on Nick.
This is the only special that Patchy did not host.
This is the first time that SpongeBob and Patrick travel through time.
This episode was voted #3 in the SpongeBob SquarePants Top 100 episodes.
The Krabby Patty lead to the downfall of Plankton's ancestor. Maybe, Plankton wanted the formula in order to return to power. This theory makes sense due to what happened in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie.
This episode can be seen on "Lost In Time" DVD.
Unlike his descendent, Planktonimor is a much bigger threat than Plankton.
Squidly appears to be nicer to SpongeBob and Patrick than his descendent, his performance to the Dark Knight doesn't count, Squidward would have done the same thing.
This episode reveals that krabby patties and karate were never actually invented.
The "Lost in Time" special drew 8.6 million total viewers and 5.2 million kids 2-11, making it the biggest audience of the year to date among children, behind the Super Bowl.
Here are all the characters in medieval times:
Spongebob/Patrick: squires, ones who are to fufill the prophecy of King Krabs.
Sandy; Sandy the Dark Knight: a Dark Knight of Planktonimor.
Plankton; Planktonimor: the evil wizard
Mr. Krabs: King Krabs: King of Bikini Bottomshire, wears his work clothes under his king robe.
Pearl: Princess Pearl: Princess of Bikini Bottomshire.
Squidward: Squidly: The Kings Royal Fool.
Jellyfish: The huge, evil fire-blowing dragon.

SpongeBob & Patrick: Medieval Moments
The scene at Medieval Moments where SpongeBob and Patrick are chosen to joust is similar to the scene in the movie The Cable Guy.
Squidward: Have it your way!

Planktonimor's name is a reference to Harry Potter's most feared nemesis, Voldemort.
Medieval Moments (name of jousting place): This is an obvious spoof on Medieval Times.
