Episode Summary

The adventures of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy are being told in a thrilling new motion picture. But as SpongeBob and Patrick soon learn, their heroes are not in the movie. The real Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy were considered too old, so their filmic counterparts will be two young actors that are nothing like the heroes. SpongeBob is outraged, and he sets out to make his own version of the Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy movie using the real guys fresh from their retirement home.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • One of the best episodes of the season!

    I laughed right through this one. This is one of the good Spongebobs. Amazing episode!
  • Loved this episode!

    Mermaid Man & Barnacle Boy VI - The Motion Picture: I laughed super hard in this episode! I laughed the hardest whenever Sandy would say "DID SOMEBODY SAY BOOM!?!?" And then Sandy would explode! Pearl playing as the invisible boat mobile and making the fart noise to show the engine is running was a little immature though. And Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy could have just used their normal invisible boat mobile instead though. I didn't like it when they said Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy are too old for acting! Just because your at an old age like Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy doesn't mean you need to stop your acting career. They quit being Super Heroes, even though there's evil afoot *Mermaid Man shouts evil and gets freaked out*. I was also immature when Spongebob was eating the worms. But all that I can let slide. I still laughed hard, also when Patrick left the cap on the camera the whole time! Overall a wonderful episode! Overall Grade: (8.5/10) Amoreless

  • SpongeBob and Patrck make a movie about MM and BB

    This is most likely my third least favorite Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy episode. It was just good, but the storyline didn't really caught my attention. It was kinda great to see the nerd from No Weenies Allowed again even if he has a different voice. I liked most of the plot line's part such as Squidward as a makeup artist, Pearl as a boat, Mermaid Man making a great plot for the movie, and the movie itself. I didn't liked a couple things here besides the lack of humor. The episode in general didn't make me laugh that much but it is just decent to watch. Score 7/10moreless

    SpongeBob and Patrick are at the Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy fan club. The president of the fan club announces that Trippy Brothers Studios are making the first ever Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy movie. But their filmic counterparts will be two young actors and that The real Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy were considered too old. SpongeBob, outraged by the fact that their superheroes are too old, goes to Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy's retirement home and tells them about the movie. Then, Mermaidman tells about his dream of being on the big screen. This inspired SpongeBob to make his own version of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy movie with the help of Squidward, Mr. Krabs, Patrick, Pearl, Sandy and Plankton.
