Episode Summary

EDIT
Whale of a Birthday: Mr. Krabs wants to give his daughter Pearl the best birthday ever. While he works on the party, SpongeBob is assigned the task of figuring out what Pearl would like for a present. So he trails her through the Bikini Bottom mall and takes note of everything she thinks is "Coral." Once Pearl arrives at her party she is horrified to find that her dad's miserly ways have won out again. What was supposed to be the most fun and fabulous event ended up cheap and lame. It looks like Pearl's birthday will go down in history as the worst one ever - until SpongeBob shows up with a truck-load of presents. Everything Pearl looked at in the mall was so Coral that SpongeBob bought it all - maxing out Mr. Krab's credit card in the process. Karate Island: SpongeBob receives an invitation to take part in a competition on mysterious Karate Island for the chance to be crowned "King of Karate." SpongeBob and Sandy arrive at Karate Island and it turns out that it was just all a set-up to make SpongeBob buy real estate.moreless

  • What the provolone were they thinking!

    1.0
    First of all,I'm just gonna say WOAB wasn't too bad,but Karate Island,just,geez. Number 1 on the Best Day Ever marathon?! BS! Just because the episode has a dedication doesn't mean it's good.
  • Whale of a Birthday Good Karate Island Poor

    whale of a birthday was good but i didnt like karate island
  • Liked Whate of Birthday but Karate Island...

    5.0
    Whale of a Birthday: I actually liked the cheesy boy band's song and singing. I also enjoyed Pearl's snooty friends drinking the dishwater and saying, "It tastes like dishwater" and Squidward says, "It is dishwater" with a smug look on his face. 6/10



    Karate Island: I don't really get why this episode was so popular. I assume kids just like the fighting scenes. I get that Sandy was trying to channel Bruce Lee (with the yellow outfit) but beyond that this episode really fails. 2/10moreless
  • Whale of a Birthday excellent but Karate Island was just poor (you'll see why)

    7.0
    This episode had an awfully lower score because of the Karate Island (most likely). But I don't really see them bashing both episodes since Whale of a Birthday was excellent. I do understand that Karate Island wasn't that good and my review on that episode won't be positive either. That's the other reason why my average is dropped.



    Whale of a Birthday: I thought this was an excellent episode. This Pearl centered episode beat Chaperon and Bossy Boots although Tunnel of Glove (a later Pearl episode) was a little better and funnier imo. Anyway, the storyline was great to watch while there isn't that much funny scenes. I only laughed at SpongeBob trying to buy everything for Pearl (which the list was very long), especially when he bought a fish and was dressed as a girl, Squidward singing the remix of "It's about you," and the last line. Score 10/10



    Karate Island: I thought this was a poor episode of SpongeBob. I can really understand why there's too much hate for this episode. Because of the Best Day Ever marathon, this was voted as the best episode ever. Not the "best day ever," but this episode was never my cup of tea, not even when I saw it for the first time. Krusty Towers should have won. The episode was getting really boring. I only laughed pretty much most of the stuffs in the first few minutes (SpongeBob on Gary's shell, "You think I'm special?" and the video) and a few parts after that. So the episode being the best episode ever is the reason why it is so hated...don't really hate it, but I was bored watching it. Score 4/10moreless
