  • Actually better than Scaredy Pants

    I would say 7/10

  • This video was great!!!!!!!!!!

    I loved this video!!!! It was so funny i loved the way the ghost said he took their souls and it was just orange soda in a bottle. I found that part so freakin funny. I was pissing my pants whaen i first saw this video. I was flipping through channel and i saw it and i watched. I loved this episode one of my favorites!!!!
  • Perfect SBSP special

    The Flying Dutchman returns to Bikini Bottom, finds SpongeBob, and tells him of treasure hidden in an abandoned and haunted house, but warns him of a terrible ghost named the Lord Poltergeist who haunts the house. So SpongeBob, Patrick, Sandy Mr. Krabs and Squidward go to visit the haunted house.

    This was a perfect episode of SpongeBob. I'msurprisedthat the total score had been a 10 so far. 8 of us really love this episode. Anyway, the plot was super great. It didn't mention Halloween but the episode has a spooky feeling to it so this does felt like a Halloween episode. The ending was kinda a problem but I can let that part slide since we only saw that for 45 seconds. As for my favorite parts, I liked everything what tigerdude22 pretty much put on his review on this episode. Overall, a perfect Halloween special episode of SpongeBob SquarePants. I'm glad that the writers decided to do an episode that involved creepy stuffs that make it feel like a Halloween episode. 10/10moreless
  • Funny, and way better than the previous Halloween episode.

    So Spongebob and Patrick are just relaxing in Jellyfish Fields when all of a sudden, a flying ghost ship arrives, and drops to the ground. So Patrick tries to prove Spongebob it's just a lame haunted house for kids.

    I thought it was hilarious when Patrick thought the house ship was so lame and cheesy, but it honestly was really scary. The cloud scene in the beginning also made me laugh. And here's something I'm not sure other reviewers noticed. When the flying ghost ship is flying, it looks like the darkness of night is following it; kind of like the ship's job is to give night to the ocean. But when it stops and falls, the dark keeps on moving. That's honestly really creative, and something only capable of noticing if you are really noticing the story.

    Anyway, as Spongebob and Patrick explore, they meet another ghost pirate, who is in charge of the ship. However, Patrick believes it's one of those robots at pizza parlors, which was hilarious, including the anchovy pizza gag. The design of the ghost was awesome, and the song his crew sings is really fun.

    The ghost's ship apparently needs a new head gasket, and Spongebob and Patrick need to get one or their souls will be taken, and they'll be part of the ghost's crew forever. So when they tell Mr. Krabs, who learns about the pirate's treasure, decides to give them a head gasket from some one's car, which was very funny. So, Mr. Krabs, Sandy, and Squidward go to the ghost's ship to get the treasure, save Spongebob and Patrick's souls, and catch a ghost or two.

    However, Krabs, Squidward, and Patrick get caught stealing the gold, and the ghost sucks them into the void, where their biggest nightmares and fears are with them for all eternity.

    Mr. Krabs flipping out when he had to pay a doubloon to use the bathroom was cute, but predictable. Patrick had a donut on his head, but every time he reached it, his head expanded higher and higher. However, Patrick doesn't like plain donuts, so the donut changed to one with sprinkles, to chocolate, to pancakes, to a Krabby Patty, to one with pickles, to one with extra ketchup, and then changed back to a plain donut, and the donut screamed instead which was hilarious. Squidward's greatest fear was a giant Spongebob, and I love how Squidward nonchalantly said, "I guess this is the part where I scream," which was hilarious.

    However, Sandy saves them all, and Spongebob discovers that the treasure chest belongs to the Flying Dutchman. So Spongebob calls the Flying Dutchman to get his property back. So the ghost runs away from the Dutchman, but soon Dutchman turns into a freaking torpedo, and knocks everyone into the void.

    So, in the void, the ghost, his crew, Spongebob, Patrick, Sandy, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, and all the other characters hit by the torpedo, or already living in the void now live and work in the Krusty Krab, that got in the void, because..............I don't know. And now they're all in the void.

    Overall, hilarious, but the ending was a tad bit confusing and disappointing. Also, we never learn the ghost's name, which was irritating to me for some reason. But, I'm still giving it a 10 out of 10.moreless
  • Remember how I said the Fish Hooks Halloween Special was the best? I was WRONG! 8D

    This episode was great (and unexpectedly random)! So, Spongebob and Patrick find this haunted house-boat, and the captain ghost tries to scare Patrick (Spongebob was already scared enough.). he two end up scared and run off to tell Mr. Krabs about what happened, only to find out Mr. Krabs only wants the gold.

    So, they go off, and Mr. Krabs nabs the gold, which ends up in Squidward, Patrick, and Mr. Krabs suffering eternal suffering. Sandy then helps out the three and the ghost takes back the gold, but Spongebob finds out It belongs to the Flying Dutchman(Who seemed a bit more evil than he used to be) and kills the ghosts and the Spongebob crew (with the exception of Gary, as he didn't appear this episode.) This episode was creepy, funny, and random all in one episode. Can't get better than that.

    10/10 A+ Best Halloween Special EVER.moreless
