  • Pearl, spoiled brat; Gary, awesome

    6.5
    The Slumber Party: It had some good comedy, such as Spongebob's attempts to get into the party and Mr Krabs destroying Spongebob's things. However, Pearl is rude and asinine towards Mr. Krabs and she gets her way; and we're apparently supposed to take Pearl's side. My opinion: This episode is bad, but not awful.



    Grooming Gary: There's a lot a great humor to be found in this episode, and the snails' actions near the end are incredibly satisfying. They manage to have Spongbob be a bit insensitive towards Gary while showing that he cares about him, so he doesn't come off as the idiot from "A Pal for Gary". I think that the mistreatment of the snails might have gone a bit farther than it needed to. Granted, it is part of the story and not simple animal torture porn like "Petsitter Pat"; however I think it could've toned back just a bit. My opinion: This episode is great.moreless
  • Underrated pairs

    9.5
    Slumber Party: IMO, this episode was superb, but not my favorite and it kind of underrated. It featured the first Pearl episode since the season 4 episode Whale of a Birthday (and her previous appearance was in Best Frienemies since she wasn;t in season 5). Pearl still had her bratness throughout the episode but it didn't bothers me that much. The only flaws was certain scenes that were slow, meh, etc. Other than that, there were some funny scenes such as Mr. Krabs talking in an Italian accent ("and a mama mia we got got a pizza pie-a") (that was one of the best part the post movie Krabs had to offer), SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs watching a scary movie, then Mr. Krabs got frightened after seeing the boys burning money, SpongeBob doing several ways to get in Pearl's party, a girl SpongeBob appearing (and Pearl thinking that girl is SpongeBob but it wasn't him), and SpongeBob spouting root beer at the girls. 9/10



    Grooming Gary: Another underrated episode in this underrated season. I thought it was the better episode. I didn't see a problem for this episode. Funny moments: SpongeBob trying to search for Gary (including the tv, bathroom, and at Squidward's bathroom), Patrick's appearance, glow in the dark shell, Gary biting the judge, the pets starting a riot, and the ending. Overall score, 10/10moreless
  • Mmm...they're both okay, I guess...

    7.5
    I'll be honest: when I read some reviews for "Slumber Party" blaming Pearl for what happened, I was surprised. Quite honestly, I'm on Pearl's side on this one. All she wanted was to have a simple slumber party with her friends. While some of Mr. Krabs' rules were reasonable (such as "No Boys"), him not giving Pearl any pizza money and relentlessly spying on her and her friends was not. That, and he completely dominated SpongeBob's house. If Krabs and SpongeBob had just left Pearl and her friends alone, there probably wouldn't have been any damage to Krabs' house. In my opinion, Krabs brought Pearl's anger down on himself.

    "Grooming Gary" was a little better. It took Gary some time to get it through SpongeBob's thick head that he wanted NO part in the pet contest, and SpongeBob ultimately accepted Gary's decision, which was good. Overall, no real complaints with this episode.

    "Slumber Party" was okay, though I do think Mr. Krabs was more at fault than Pearl was. "Grooming Gary" was an okay Gary episode.moreless
  • pearl has a slumber party and spongebob tries to sneak in, and spongebob enters gary in a pet show but it turns into a riot...

    8.5
    the slumber party: this was an amazing episode,there is finaly a pearl episode, which are the ones i love because there arnt really many pearl episodes, but this isnt the only reason why i like it. starts off when mr krabs is sleeping on the couch with food on him, lol tht was classic, then when he was forces by pearl to go up stairs hes putting a padlock on the frige. theres 2 funny parts in a couple of seconds, im not going to go through all the parts that i liked because i liked all of it. and it isnt one of those stupid endings like laughing or something it has a good ending with a beach party and mr krabs kept behind a rope guarded by a then spongebob asked if he wants root bear but that didnt help 1 bit.



    grooming gary: this is eppy that was good but ruined the score. it was okay.... but unoriginal, gary was behaving odd and that speach over the microphone gary was saying, what is the point of that, you dont know what he is saying so why put it there and this is what i call a bad ending, funny i admit, but still stupid patrick one it because he acted like a pet. well if these episodes where seperate i would give the slumber party a 10 but grooming gary a 5. i think the slumber party was twice as good. still it was okay but not wat i expected.moreless
