Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Another great pair of classic episodes

    Aired today at 7:00am.
  • Fools in April was perfect and Neptune's Spatula was good.

    Fools in April: On April Fools Day SpongeBob plays some harmless pranks on people. When Squidward gets tired of his pranks he plays a prank of his own on SpongeBob. I do agree that the prank he played on SpongeBob was mean, but it didn't make me lower my score for two reasons. 1. At least he gets punished for his actions and apologizes to him at the end of the episode unlike that more recent episode of SpongeBob. *Cough* Little Yellow Book *Cough* 2. I rate these episodes by how funny they are and if I lowered my score just because of Squidward's prank then I would feel like I would be nitpicking. Overall, I thought it was a perfect episode with lots of laughs.

    Neptune's Spatula: When SpongeBob pulls the spatula from the grease King Neptune wants to know who did it. He doesn't believe it is SpongeBob at first, but when he does he challenges SpongeBob to a cook-off to see who can cook better. This isn't the best episode of this season, but it still has some funny moments. Like when King Neptune tries SpongeBob's Krabby Patty and says "This is good. I think I'd like to try it a second and spits it out. The ending was funny too. Not the best SpongeBob episode, but an enjoyable one. 8/10moreless
  • poor spongebob

    i like these episodes but the only time its funny to see spongebob get tossed painfuly around the kk is in the new episodes.
  • um....7?

    i'd say neptune's spatula is OK
  • Squidward plays a prank on SpongeBob after he did a lot of April Fools pranks and SpongeBob battles against King Neptune

    Fools in April: This episode was superb. Although no boring scenes, Squidward's prank on SpongeBob because he had it with his pranks was the reason why the score's a little lower. Other than that, an enjoyable for most of the parts. Parts that I laughed were SpongeBob's April fools pranks, Patrick's appearance, Squidward doing various stuffs, and the ending. Overall, a superb April Fools themed episode of SpongeBob. 9/10

    Neptune's Spatula: Decent episode, but unfortunately, this episode was boring towards the end and there isn't anything interesting to say. I didn't think that battle between SpongeBob and Neptune was interesting, it was kinda a waste of time. The ending wasn't that great either. I did like the first few minutes of it though because there were a bunch funny parts. Overall, a good episode which got boring after 7 minutes. 7/10moreless
