Episode Summary


Something Smells:
SpongeBob eats a peanut onion sundae and acquires a hideous case of bad breath. And he can't quite understand why everyone runs away from him whenever he talks to them.

Bossy Boots:
When Pearl remodels the Krusty Krab into a hip local hangout, SpongeBob worries about the fate of the original restaurant (not to mention, his position as Fry Cook!).


Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Some of my favorite episodes of Season 2

    I loved these episodes. My favorite part of Something Smells is how Patrick thought he "caught the ugly". Classic.
  • Am I the only one who enjoyed Bossy Boots just as much as Something Smells?

    Something Smells: When SpongeBob makes a rancid sundae, Patrick thinks everyone is running away from SpongeBob because they think he's ugly when he really has bad breath. This is probably my favorite Season 2 episode. It was hilarious when Patrick thinks that he caught the ugly and all the gags in this episode were hilarious. If you haven't seen this episode already then you're missing out. 10/10

    Bossy Boots: When Pearl gets a job at the Krusty Krab she makes a lot of changes to the restaurant including the name. When the whole thing goes to far, SpongeBob decides to do something about it. It was funny when Squidward says "Sure it's a terrible name, but this is a terrible place therefore the name should be left when Pearl decides to pick a new name for the Krusty Krab. It was also funny when that one fish says "Hey buddy, you need a lift? I was just on my way to the big doofus These were both great episodes and a great start to season 2. 10/10moreless

    Something Smells


    Bossy Boots


  • SpongeBob gets bad breath and Pearl change the Krusty Krab

    Something Smells: I liked/laughed Gary playing the violin, SpongeBob getting bad breath, everyone running off, SpongeBob saying the band's names, the builder moving away, SpongeBob playing rthe organ, Patrick telling a story, SpongeBob saying "I'm ugly and I'm proud!", "Look at it part." I didn't give it a 10 because there were 3 parts that were boring. Overall score 9.5/10.

    Bossy Boots: I liked/laughed: "Horray! The new spatulas are here!" "Hello pole", Spon geBob and Pearl coming up with names, Squidward getting mad and then quits, SpongeBob pretending to fire Pearl, and the last part. My problems were Pearl was being a little bossy and several parts could have been better. Overall score 7/10.moreless
