Episode Summary

EDIT
Krusty Krushers: Mr. Krabs hatches up yet another get-rich-quick scheme: professional wrestling. But he won't be the one wrestling; he's going to be the manager - and money-handler - for the newest tag-team wrestlers in Bikini Bottom: SpongeBob and Patrick. The Card: The new Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy trading cards are on sale, and SpongeBob is determined to get the super special rare talking card. He's stunned when Patrick immediately finds the card without even trying. And to make matters worse, he doesn't treat it with the care and respect SpongeBob believes it deserves.moreless

  • I really really wish I could give this pair a 10/10, but The Card is one of my most hated episodes of the whole show.

    4.5
    Krusty Krushers was one of my favorite episodes from season 6. Basically Mr. Krabs tricks Spongebob and Patrick into wrestling for him to try and win a million dollars. There are a lot of funny gags with Spongebob and Patrick getting beaten up until the climax where Patrick manages to win the match for him and Spongebob by doing something he was dreaming about in his sleep, and they chose to go to wrestle camp to celebrate their victory. I gave Krusty Krushers a 9.0/10.

    That one was good. But the Card... is absolutely awful.

    It starts off with filler with Spongebob at the bank, and it ends with him getting his money. This seen could have and should have been excluded from the episode. Spongebob goes and buys some Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy trading cards from the store, and apparently they're all crap. Only one card has any value, Card #54. This fact alone tells that the writers of Spongebob don't know jack about how trading cards work. Trading cards are supposed to have ranging values and rarities to keep the game interesting, and keeping it from stalling. Also, Patrick is there, reading a book on how to count. Yes, Patrick really IS that stupid. Spongebob buys up all but one of the packs, none of them have the only card of value, running him flat broke. Patrick decides that counting isn't worth the time, and buys what Spongebob bought. What did he find? Card #54. Yeah, that is an incredibly predictable plot-twist, but what would you expect? Spongebob went far downhill years ago. Then there are gags where Patrick is doing stuff that could either get him hurt or killed, with Spongebob jumping to the rescue every time. Then Patrick says that he likes to mix up his stupidity from time to time...

    stop. Just... stop. Read that line again from the episode again. Patrick: "Spongebob, you can't always expect my usual brand of stupidity. I like to mix it up, keep you on your He's doing this on purpose. But not only in this episode, but he said his USUAL BRAND OF STUPIDITY, so it must include episodes like I'm With Stupid and Squidtastic Voyage, where he was either incredibly mean-spirited, or stupid to the point of endangering his life. This also affects appearances shown afterwards like in episodes Pet Sitter Pat, Little Yellow Book and Yours, Mine, and Mine. He's acting stupid, or he's pretending to be stupid. He's a sociopath solely bent on causing as much pain and suffering to anyone he encounters. But back to the review... sorry. I just had to vent. Patrick goes off a metal gurdurr, right after admitting he does what stupid crud he did on purpose. Spongebob saves him before he and the card gets incinerated. They get back home, and Patrick put the card in his pocket. Spongebob panics because having the card in Patrick's pocket means it's going to get bent up and ruin the card.

    Soon afterwards, it's revealed that Patrick had the card in the grotesque folds of his back. Now the card stinks, and Patrick offers to give the card to Spongebob. He however wants to keep the card for the rest of the day, and ends destroying the blasted piece of plastic and it goes complete bust. Spongebob breaks out crying and Patrick reveals he had all of the remaining card #54s. And now I just have to bang my head on a wall. He had all of the cards, and put Spongebob through all that pain just to show that he had all of the cards on him. This episode killed Patrick for me. The fact that everything he did and does is intentional absolutely ruined my perception of the once beloved sidekick, and makes me down-right hate him. The Card killed my childhood and instead of feeling a part of me die, I feel dead inside from this episode. 0/10.moreless
  • First pair was full of laughs while the second was draggy

    9.5
    Krusty Krushers: This was always my favorite season 6 for a reason. It was just full of laughter. Even though Mr. Krabs was greedy in it, I didn't mind since it was funny. I never had a flaw with this episode. I'm glad George Lopez calls it his favorite episode, cause I really agreed with him. I don't really see how people can hate this episode just because it's full of violence. Wrestling episodes are always my favorite type of episode. Anyway, as for my favorite parts here, those were all the wrestlers fail to defeat the two champs, we actually get to hear that "my leg" line again (wow), SpongeBob and Patrick fake wrestling, the champs using them, and more. 10/10



    The Card: This episode wasn't as hilarious as Krusty Krushers but it still has its moments. It was kind of draggy for several scenes. It was basically SpongeBob trying to keep the titular card clean for most of the episode. Funny moments: SpongeBob kept holding the customers over a dollar until he got kicked out of the bank, Patrick reading the book, Patricking messing with the card, and the last line. Dethroning moment: Like I said earlier, this episode was basically SpongeBob trying to keep number #54 clean for most of the episode. I found him a tad annoying here since he overreact to the thing too much throughout it. Heartwarming: The ending when Patrick got the other #54 cards. 8.5/10moreless
  • these episodes SUCK

    1.5
    the krusty krushers episode sucked, and so did the card, but the card was a slight improvement over krusty krushers
  • Two halfway decent newer Spongebob episodes.

    5.0
    Krusty Krushers: It is watchable because the writers created some unique moments with the pro wrestlers and their prey (SpongeBob and Patrick). They gargle them, put them to sleep, and do all kinds of ridiculous things to them. For a newer episode, it isn't too bad. 5/10



    The Card: This episode actually made me hate Patrick a little bit. The ending was good though. 5/10
  • I still love these episodes of Spongebob Squarepants and its still great.

    10
    As a long time fan of Spongebob Squarepants since I like watching most of Season 6's episodes I still love these two episodes and I admit that both Krusty Krushers and The Card episodes are very good.

    Krusty Krushers: This is a funny episode in Spongebob Squarepants and Spongebob and Patrick were both funny in this episode and I remember watching this at my sister's place it was super funny and I couldn't stop laughing at this episode and the wrestling concept is just funny even the finale of this episode where Patrick working out with the iron on his but is funny even when the two chose to go to wrestling camp rather than getting the money itself and overall a funny episode.

    Rating 10/10



    The Card: Ok this episode is what people hated the most because the plot of this episode is about Spongebob trying to protect a special rare Mermaid Man and Barnacle boy Card that Patrick is holding in his hand as he starts roaming around town about to destroy the card and Spongebob is trying to protect the card whenever Patrick is in various dangerous areas because it will ruin its value. I admit this episode was super funny and the gags are fun to watch in this episode. The highlights of this episode is Spongebob freaking out over the rare card is super funny. The beginning of this episode with Spongebob getting picky with the money is funny. The comic book store scene is super funny because I laughed really hard on Patrick counting the money to but the comic book. The mud about to Splash in Patrick's body and Spongebob getting covered with the mud is laughable and hilarious. Patrick falling into a hot boiling oil while his body falls into it and Spongebob saves him is funny and Patrick doing various things to the Card like cleaning the barbeque grill etc is super funny. The only flaw in this episode is Spongebob crying over the card is boring and lame. Overall a great episode just as good as its predecessor. Rating 10/10moreless
