  • Why do they still air this episode?

    I should have reviewed this sooner but the other reviews already cover it. The reason I say I should have reviewed it sooner is because they have aired this episode recently. It aired again today at 8:00 am before Sand Castles in the Sand, and I realized I should have reviewed it sooner. Well there's not really much to say other then I agree this episode is awful. And it's a mystery anyone likes this episode or that the rating is 5.4. And my vote doesn't change it, really I could have given it a 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, or 2 and the rating would still be 5.4. Sam & Cat is the same way. I gave Sam & Cat a 10 originally before changing it to 5, then 4, and now 1 and it's still rated with 7.7. So I bet even without my vote Sanjay and Craig would still be at 4.0 or maybe 4.1 considering it was at 4.1 yesterday before two new yet accurate reviews showed up.



    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

    This is unbelievably gross and disgusting. Getting a splinter is one thing, but then we get "Doctor" Patrick who makes things really nasty. First he uses a hammer on the splinter, which made me feel really bad for SpongeBob. Then he puts garbage onto it, getting it infected. When Mr. Krabs takes out the splinter, the pus spills out and hits Mr. Krabs. So disgusting and appalling.

    This episode is very disgusting. It makes me wonder how they even got away with it without getting complaints from Parents. It does seem like it's going to be awful from the begining, but then the horror starts when you see a splinter get jammed into his finger. SpongeBob cringes and it makes the audiance cringe too. Patrick should have been kept out of this special, because he just made the splinter worse by jamming a wooden stake and a hammer on it making it swell up and ooze some pus. The grossest part is near the ending where Mr. Krabs asks to sees SpongeBob's splinter and it shows SpongeBob's thumb swollen up twice the size as his hand with redness, oozing pus, and even you even a pulsating vein. That may be gross, but that's not the worst part; the worst part is when Mr. Krabs finally pulls the splinter out of SpongeBob's thumb and a whole bunch of liquid pus comes out and some squirts on Mr. Krabs before he does get an umbrella. I feel great that the horror is gone but it doesn't make me like this episode.moreless

  • Worse than an injured toenail

    1.0
    Out of all of the horrible episodes I've seen in Season 6 (House Fancy, Penny Foolish, Gone), this one takes the cake as the worst episode in that season. It was disgusting, cringe-worthy, and a pointless 11 minutes of someone attempting to remove a splinter. It's more disgusting than the toenail scene in my opinion. Also, Squidward was a jerk in this episode. He told Spongebob that Mr. Krabs would have to send him home because of his splinter. And to add insult to injury, Dr. Patrick reappears in this episode, but he never saves this episode. No, he just tries to remove Spongebob's splinter in a series of unfunny stunts. And to make the episode worse, we see Spongebob's splinter removed. At first, confetti pops out, but then gross pus comes out and splashes Mr. Krabs. This episode should be banned from airing on Nickelodeon and every country in the world. It should also be removed from existance.moreless
