  • One Krabs Trabs Is Excellent and The Snow Effect is Superb

    10
    One Krabs Trash: This is one of my all-time favories. It starts off a little boring during the first minutes but improves from there. So Mr.K rabs has a yard sale after going threw the garbage cans (...) he then sells a soda-drinking hat with the #1 on the front to Spongebob for a quick 10 bucks. Just then, Mr. Krabs finds that the hat is rare, and worth a million dollars, he tries everything he can to get it back. Eventually, he pretends to be the "Ghost of Soda-Drinking Hat" by hooking a badly drawn ghost to a fishing rod and sticking it through spongebob's houses window, and tells SpongeBob that the hat once belonged to a now-deceased person named "Smitty Werbenjaegermanjenson" [He was #1!]. ". He tells SpongeBob that if he doesn't place the hat in Smithy's grave, he'll be cursed. So, a frightened SpongeBob decides to fulfill the command, though he apparently placed it in the grave of "Smitty Werbenjaegermanjanson". Mr. Krabs defiles his grave and takes the hat, only for Smitty Werbenmanjanson to rise from the dead in the form of an animated skeleton, and asks Mr. Krabs to give him the hat back. Mr. Krabs refuses, so Smitty summons the "army of the living dead" to take the hat back. But Mr. Krabs defeats them all, and leaves the graveyard. He then tries to sell the hat, only to learn it is it is now considered worthless, since a warehouse full of them was recently discovered. Then, SpongeBob passes by with his new hat, which claps with hands on it, and it is worth even more money over a billion dollars. Mr. Krabs then cries.



    Final Grade: 9.0 out 10 [A- "Excellent'']moreless
  • SpongeBob and Patrick has fun with snow; Mr. Krabs has a garage sale

    10
    Snowball Effect: I laughed at some of the stuffs at the beginning (Krabs making snow money, Mrs. Puff blowing snow off her car, and Plankton's appearance), Patrick trying to make a snowball, SpongeBob shooting snowball at Patrick, Squidward making a fort and then he make it bigger.Overall, this episode was very funny and it was excellent all the way through. 10/10



    One Krabs Trash: This episode was not as perfect as Snowball Effect. Funny moments are Mr. Krabs having a garage sale, Patrick's part at the beginning, everyone want the hat, SpongeBob playing with the hat, Mr. Krabs scaring him with a ghost like paper, and Mr. Krabs attacking the bones (dead bodies). Overall, a superb episode. 9.5/10moreless

  • Try to guess which one I love more? (OR just read my review if you don't feel like guessing) LOL

    9.5
    Snowball Effect: I thought that this was an excellent episode of "SpongeBob SquarePants". To answer the question that I made above my review right now... I love "Snowball Effect" more and that's your answer. It was funny that it's snowing in Bikini Bottom. Plankton's cameo appearance was very funny. Patrick having trouble making a snowball was very funny. The most hilarious part in this episode was when SpongeBob was shooting snowballs inside Patrick's mouth and Patrick's mouth is stuffed with snowballs. Patrick asking Squidward if he can use Squidward's bathroom was funny also. Squidward getting carried away with the snowball fights was also very funny. The ending was funny as well. Overall, an excellent episode of "SpongeBob SquarePants". 10/10



    One Krabs Trash: I thought that this was a superb episode of "SpongeBob SquarePants". My score was just a little low because I thought some parts were a bit boring. Mr. Krabs having his garage sale in the beginning of the episode was funny. Mr. Krabs selling SpongeBob the soda-drinking hat was funny. Mr. Krabs constantly drooling because of the prices that the people want to buy for the soda-drinking hat was funny. I also laughed at the lines "What a baby". Mr. Krabs going to the cemetery to get the soda-drinking hat back and fighting some skeletons was funny. The ending with SpongeBob wearing clapping hands hat was funny. Overall, a superb episode of "SpongeBob SquarePants". 9/10moreless
  • Really Great Episodes!

    9.5
    The Snowball Effect: Great episode. It was nice to see winter in Bikini Bottom. I like the bit with snow in Patrick's mouth. Those parts were really funny, becasue I love to eat snow! Maybe not a whole bunch, but a nibble or two, haha. Spongebob and Patrick at the end was funny.



    One Krabs Trash: Loved this episode, especially the end with Mr.Krabs crying and the people chasing Spongebob, and Squidward in this episode was just funny! Mr.Krabs Vs. the skeletons was pretty cool. I was a little scared for Mr.Krabs. Can't believe he had made it out of there WITH the helmet! The helmet was pretty cool. All the helmets featured in this episode was pretty cool! Overall, great episodes.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (23)

    • Why didn't SpongeBob know the ghost was a fake when Mr. Krabs turned the paper and his arm was shown?

    • In the "Snowball Effect," Patrick makes a cube, a pyramid, and a DNA in his failed attempts to make a snowball. But later, some cubes are behind his fort.

    • Where did the tree from the end of "The Snowball Effect" come from?

    • In the replay, SpongeBob got to where his house is and called it Hatty, and he says Mr. Krabs comes in after, but it took a much longer time, and SpongeBob isn't that close to Mr. Krabs' house, and how did he change the 2 bottles to different-colored ones so quickly?

    • When Squidward said, "But if they attack from the rear, I'm a goner", he was fixing the rear of his fort, but he didn't do much with it, because if you look closely, it was the same before he "fixed" it.

    • In "One Krabs Trash", Spongebob said he found 68 cents, but he only holds 3 pennies. He only had 3 cents!

    • In "One Krab's Trash", when Spongebob remembers what him and his hat have been through, WHERE'S PATRICK?

    • In "One Krabs Trash" Mr. Krabs dropped his shovel when he heard the gate close. He has it again to go look at the tombstone Squidward was crying over.

    • SpongeBob says he returned the hat to Smitty Werbenjaegermanjensen, but on the tombstone of Smitty's grave, the "jaeger" part of his last name is missing.

    • In the SpongeBob-Esque Closeup (see my entry for "Wet Painters/Krusty Krab Training Video" if you don't know what I mean - though I assume you can get the implication) of the DNA key Patrick made, it is shorter than in a long shot.

    • When Mr. Krabs is digging up Smitty's grave, there are 3 tombstones in the background. Then when he gets back up, there are 4 tombstones and a statue in the background

    • When the #1 hat is on the fish head mannequin, it has a mouthpiece. Then when SpongeBob puts it on the mouthpiece disappears.

    • In One Krabs Trash at the beginning Mr. Krabs' blanket was directly in front of his house. Then later on his blanket is off to the side.

    • Did you notice when Patrick was trying to make a snowball there was a purple building in the background that disappeared later on?

    • When Mr. Krabs said, "You were born to wear this hat" the hat has no straw.

    • In "One Krab's Trash" Spongebob's bed was at the wrong angle as implied in "Help Wanted".

    • When Mr. Krabs said, "I am the ghost of Soda Drink Hat" he held up another fishing pole with a picture of the hat. When Mr. Krabs is shown outside, he only had one fishing pole.

    • While Squidward Yells at Spongebob And Pat out of his window, The closeup shows his window hinge on a left angle, but the wide view shows his window hinge on just the plain ol' left side, Then back again.

    • When Squidward was making his fort higher, the top was open, so it's still possible for an aerial attack.

    • In Snowball Effect as Squidward is building up the fort he builds up three sides of his fort. Then we get a shot further away showing a complete fort. Squidward then says "If they attack from the rear I'm a gonner." He then builds up a part already built up?

    • When Sponge was about to buy that hat.He had a dollar bill when he came back w/ $.68 then he had 2 dollar bills

    • In "Snowball Effect," when Patrick said he can't make snowball.
      Remember in "Survival of the Idiots" he made at least one snowball.

    • In "Snowball Effect" when Squidward starts making the huge fort, there's no tree above him, but when he's done building the fort, there's that tree above him.

      Mr. Krabs: Five bucks.
      Patrick: I only got seven.
      Mr. Krabs: DEAL!
      Patrick: Patrick Star, you are one smart shopper.

    • Squidward: Come out, come out, SpongeBob and Patrick! I'm ready for you!
      (snow falls from tree on to his head)
      Squidward: The first shot has been fired!
      (more snow falls)

  • NOTES (22)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Episode Title: One Krab's Trash
      The title "One Krab's Trash" can be derived from the expression "one man's trash is another man's treasure."

    • Krabs: Look at me! I'm Errol Finn!
      This is a reference to famous swashbuckling movie star Errol Flynn, known for his many sword play roles.

    • Patrick: being hit with snowballs
      As I mentioned in the Notes section, the slow-motion scene of Patrick being hit in the mouth with SpongeBob's snowballs a reference to Sam Peckinpah; I pointed out "The Wild Bunch" (the only film of his that I personally have seen), but all of his films from that point on contained such violence, as did 1967's "Bonnie & Clyde", which he produced (I think). The reference, of course, refers to action scenes/shootouts in which the action is slowed down and squibs explode, sending a geyser of fake blood from a bag worn on the body of the actor into the air. This technique has actually appeared in a good many action films since, such as "The Untouchables", "We Were Soldiers", and I'm sure hundreds (if not thousands) of other films.
