Episode Summary

Stuck in the Wringer / Overbooked
Stuck in the Wringer:
SpongeBob gets stuck in his wringer after taking a shower, and has to go about his business with the cumbersome wringer still stuck on him.

SpongeBob is scheduled to do three things on the same day: fix Mr. Krabs' telescope, attend Patrick's birthday party, and help Sandy with her science presentation. The catch is that they're all scheduled at the same time!moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • stuck in the wringer/ overbooked

    Isn't spongebob for children? Scabies! Seriously!?!
  • Stuck in the Wringer... was one of the worst episodes of the whole show.

    Never have I seen so many assholes on this show. Mr. Krabs, Patrick, the citizens of Bikini Bottom... Spongebob was tortured left and right and my heart just kept dropping. Also... WORST MORAL EVER. I guess crying DOES solve your problems after all.
  • Both episodes are mediocre

    That's all I have to say. 3.5/10 for each.

    UPDATE ON FEBRUARY 2 (originally posted last year on November 29): Nick has an upcoming show called Breadwinners that airs in 20 days. Today I found the pilot on YouTube and showed it to my family. EVERYONE HATED IT! They all said it was the worst thing they'd seen in their lives. And that includes The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure (2012), Spider's Web: A Pig's Tale (2006), and Rabbids Invasion. So I won't be surprised when Breadwinners gets a 1.9 just like Marvin Marvin here at and Spider's Web: A Pig's Tale at IMDb. My Aunt said I should rate it as low as possible just to get the score down. Unfortunately, the lowest one can rate is 1, unless you are a prolific author. I have been working on that for months (6 plus months), so I can rate stuff like Marvin Marvin, Fred: The Show, and The Oogieloves a 0.0. Breadwinners is next on my "to rate 0.0 once I can" list.

    UPDATE ON FEBRUARY 18: Breadwinners premiered yesterday. I have reviewed it. It's bad but not as bad as Sanjay and Craig.moreless
  • "Stuck in the Wringer" was overall mediocre and "Overbooked" was great.

    Stuck in the Wringer: I thought that this was overall an okay episode of "SpongeBob SquarePants". SpongeBob being stuck in a wringer wasn't a bad idea. I just didn't like how SpongeBob was being treated while he was stuck in the wringer which was mostly Patrick's fault for glueing some forever glue on SpongeBob. I thought it was funny when SpongeBob said that he was a sad bike rack and then that one fish uses SpongeBob as a bike rack, when SpongeBob keeps getting hurt on whatever rides he is going on, and when Patrick says "How often does the carnival come to town?" and then there is a sign that says "Carnival always here". I didn't like it when SpongeBob yelled at Patrick and it hurt Patrick's feelings but I didn't like how everyone tells SpongeBob that he deserved to be in the wringer and calling him a mean person and all that and he isn't. The ending was kind of funny but it would of ended better if SpongeBob and Patrick weren't stuck in the wringer together. Overall, it is an okay episode. 5.5/10

    Overbooked: I thought that this episode was a little better than "Stuck in the Wringer" but I still thought the story could have been a little better. SpongeBob makes a plan to be Sandy's assistant for her invention, help Mr. Krabs fix the telescope, and celebrate Patrick's birthday. Uh oh!!! SpongeBob has to go three places at once, what's he going to do? SpongeBob is running back and forth. SpongeBob running back and forth to Sandy, Mr. Krab, and Patrick was getting a little tiring. I only laughed once in this episode and that was when Patrick said "SpongeBob, why are your clothes invisible?". Sandy, Mr. Krabs, and Patrick find out about SpongeBob going three places at once and SpongeBob told them that he didn't want to say "no" to any of them and the three of them said that they would understand. Sandy's invention turns out to be cloning SpongeBob into three which can help him go three places at once. Overall, a great episode but it could have been a little better. 8.5/10moreless
  • Patrick is very annoying in both of these episodes.

    Stuck in the wringer, SB got stuck on his wringer after taking a shower, then Patrick came. He asks for help from Patrick, but instead of helping him out, he made SB's day more troublesome by putting an extra-strong glue. And guess what? This is why I said on my Spongebob Squarepants review that he causes trouble now. And the most annoying part on this show is, the fish people in this episode sided with Patrick! Why would you side a person that caused some trouble? They knew Spongebob was stuck because of Patrick's stupidity, by putting a glue, and yet they still sided with him! They are supporting that dumb starfish's stupidity? The fishes are probably stupid also. Good thing they don't have a twisted system like we do.

    Overbooked, a nice episode. But Patrick is still annoying and acts like a spoiled brat in here! Sandy called SB to help her in her invention presentation, and SB agreed. It seems to be a normal day for SB, until Mr.Krabs told him to help him put his D.Y.I. telescope, at the same time with Sandy's presentation. And Patrick's birthday party. Man, if I was SB, then I won't come to that ret4rd's party! He must go on by his own! What a lazy starfish, why can't he buy his own cake? Why act like a spoiled brat? He had his own birthday party in some episodes, and he made his own celebration in the episode "Breath of Fresh Squidward" and he did it by himself, and acted nicely. But in this episode, he just gives me an urge to slap him! Anyway, great concept.moreless
