Aired Saturday 10:00 AM May 05, 2001 on Nickelodeon



  • Trivia

    • In "Pre-Hibernation Week", when Sandy told SpongeBob that she wanted to go "air fishing." Right after Sandy gave SpongeBob the fishing pole, and SpongeBob threw it away, the pole suddenly disappeared.

    • Sandy can be seen blowing a whistle while playing "Extreme Jacks" with SpongeBob. How can she do so with her air helmet on?

    • Scooter appears while looking in the creature's nose, but he died in "Bubble Buddy."

    • When Sandy says they have to find the hay in the needle stack, it is actually suppose to be find the needle in the hay stack.

    • On the DirectTV info, it said that SpongeBob and Patrick bought the balloon from a store, but they bought it from a stand.

    • In "Pre-Hibernation Week," Sandy blew a whistle through her helmet. How can she do that?

    • Plankton had a lawn mower, but there is no grass in Bikini Bottom. In Bikini Bottom, kelp can be cut.

    • SpongeBob has a hurt arm, but once he gets to his bed, it's quickly healed.

    • Plankton would not need a lawn mower if he lives in a restaurant.

    • When Sandy is getting ready to hibernate, we see that unlike "Survival of the Idiots," she does not fatten up on nuts before hibernating.

    • In "Pre-Hibernation Week", when Sandy and Spongebob are sand sledding, Sandy is on fire the whole time.

      WAIT: They're UNDERWATER!!! But, actually, in the next episode "Life of Crime" Patrick finally realizes that since they're underwater, there can't be a possible fire.

    • In "Pre-Hibernation Week," if you look at Sandy's insignia nut on her pressure suit front pocket, you will notice that it's black during the whole episode.

    • The episode "Pre-Hibernation Week" has audio commentary on the "SpongeBob SquarePants Complete 2nd Season DVD."

    • When SpongeBob says "That pant's on fire, Patrick," his candy bar wrapper changes color.

    • In Life of Crime this is the second time that Patrick says "But I don't work here" when Mr Krabs said you lads put in a hard days work. The first time Patrick said that was in "Arghh"

    • In "Pre-hibernation Week," When Sandy is explaining hibernation to SpongeBob, she starts painting a fence. When she first starts painting, look closely and you'll see that the green part of Sandy's swimsuit is gone.

    • If the balloon was really full of air, and it really popped, there would be a visible air bubble floating to the surface, much like those seen when you exhale underwater.

    • In, "Prehibernation Week" why does Sandy have on her ubiquitous two-piece bathing suit when raking the leaves if it's supposed to be fall with winter approaching?

    • In Life of Crime, the balloon mutated colors. When Sponge and Pat "stole" the balloon, it was light red. Then it turned dark red, and then light red again.

    • For the nose thing: It's "Cartoon Physics." For more info on "Cartoon Physics", go to the Kim Possible section, go to the episode list, and click on Hidden Talent (on Season 2).

    • How come when SpongeBob gets off of the hydrant, you can see through him, but he heals instantly?

    • When Sponge melted, he had solid legs. But his next scene, the legs were liquid too.

    • When Spongebob's pants/shirt are held by the sharp shell at first, they're held by the pants. Later, when Sandy looks at them, it's the shirt part that's held up.

    • Right before Spongebob melts into the puddle, he has two bones sticking out. Sponges do not have bones.(Spongebob even said it himself in "Squirrel Jokes")

    • After SpongeBob melts into a puddle and Sandy says, "Hold that thought, we're going to play find the hay in the needle stack!", SpongeBob is back to normal!

    • Sandy says they're gonna go fly-fishing, but after she tells SpongeBob to hold is thought, she wants to play "Find The Hay In The Needlestack."

    • When SpongeBob tears off his nose and says, "I can't take the games! They're tearing me apart!", when the camera cuts back to him, his nose is back!

      Boy: Ready?
      Both: Oh, there once was a sandman!...
      (SpongeBob, sandboarding on his tongue, slams into the sandman and slides off inside of it, onto a ramp, shouting)

      Sandy: No you ain't!

    • Squidward: We've been at it for days!
      Mother Fish:Think about the children!

    • Sandy: Spongebob's tie! And all his other little dressings! But he always folds his clothes before running around... in the NUDE!

    • SpongeBob: At least it's warm around the fire.
      Patrick: Hey, if we're underwater, how can there be a-
      (Fire goes out)
      Patrick: I'm scared.

    • Spongebob: We can loosen our ties!
      Patrick: Yeah.(Loosens his tie that was tied around his inflated head)And we can fly!
      Spongebob: (Jumping off a cliff) Yeah! Aaaaaaaaaaaaahh!! (Thud!) Okay,we still can't do that.

    • Spongebob: At least we've got each other.
      Patrick: Yeah!

    • Squidward: Oh, look. It is I, SpongeBob, out in the open.
      Sandy: SpongeBob?!
      (SpongeBob screams like a little girl)

    • Patrick: (holding a grocery bag) WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE?!?!?!?!

    • SpongeBob: But we stole a balloon.
      Policeman: Yeah, on Free Balloon Day!

    • SpongeBob: What do you want to do today?
      Patrick: I dunno, what do you want to do today?

    • Spongebob: I'll get the pieces!
      Patrick: And I'll get the air!

    • Spongebob: But Mr.Krabs, what about all the stuff you stole?
      Mr.Krabs: What do you mean?
      Spongebob: Like that barrel! It says: Property of Salty Sea Farms!
      Mr.Krabs: Oh that's where I rent me pickles from.
      Spongebob: Are you renting the barrel too?
      Mr.Krabs: Well...no.
      Spongebob: Then you bought it.

      Patrick: (thinking what candy bars were) Rectangles!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • The name of the giant needle Sandy and SpongeBob were on, Sea Needle, is a parody of the Space Needle.

    • SpongeBob: Your games are tearing me apart!

      This could be a reference to the line from Rebel Without a Cause, where Jim says, "Your words are tearing me apart!"

    • Game: Parody
      The game "Find the Hay in the Needlestack" is a parody of "Find a Needle in the Haystack."

    • Sandy: Get up, SpongeBob, we're going flyfishing.
      Sandy is obviously trying to make a pun at the hobby of flyfishing with a plane and a fishing rod.

    • Little Girl: Maybe if we sing that song [to the snowman], he'll come to life!
      The song they sung to the snowman either was the song the kids sung to Frosty in Frosty the Snowman or it was a parody of it.

    • Mr. Krabs: "What a no-good eel-in-the-kelp that guy was!"
      The saying "Eel-in-the-kelp" is the underwater version of the saying "snake-in-the-grass"
