Born Again Krabs: Mr. Krabs refuses to let SpongeBob throw away a moldy Krabby Patty that was festering under the grill. He tries to pawn it off on customers to save the fifty-two cents he would have lost if he threw the patty away. No-one will eat it. Finally, to demonstrate it's still good, Mr. Krabs takes a bite...and ends up hospitalized for food poisoning. The Flying Dutchman comes to take his soul, but Mr. Krabs strikes a bargain with him - let him return to life and prove he's not cheap, and if he fails, he spends eternity in Davey Jones' locker. Well, obviously Mr. Krabs can't not be cheap, and the Dutchman returns for the soul. SpongeBob bets his own soul that Mr. Krabs won't be cheap and sell SpongeBob for pocket change - but he does! SpongeBob is whisked away to Davey Jones's locker - but brought back soon after - his inane chatter drives the Dutchman nuts. I Had an Accident: SpongeBob, while sand sledding, breaks his butt! Paranoid for his own safety he becomes a hermit ... Written by NAS

I had an accident review
7 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Before you see the rest of this review, let me just say that I will ONLY be reviewing the episode "I Had An Accident." The reason being is that this is actually my all-time favorite Spongebob episode. This was one of my favorite TV shows growing up, and I have seen every single episode from Season 1-3 and a decent part of Season 4. The series turned to crap after that season, and I don't watch the newer episodes. Out of all the Spongebob episodes, I Had An Accident is my all-time favorite episode.

The episode is about Spongebob severely damaging his butt in a sand boarding accident, and the doctor tells him that if he gets another injury like that, he will end up getting a huge mechanical butt. He sees the dangers of the outdoors and decides to never go outside again. So it's up to Sandy, Patrick, and many other funny things to try and convince him to go outside again. This episode really works because it captures the witty humor and spirit of what made Spongebob such a great show. You watch this episode, and you will see exactly the type of humor this show has. Not only does it do that, but it's the funniest episode as well. I especially love the ending when Spongebob asks how a gorilla can live underwater in the first place and he rides off on a giraffe. We then see a family of four looking at the TV with a look that says "What the hell am I watching?" That is gold. That is one of the many great jokes this episode has.

Not only that, but the randomness in this actually works really well. There's actually a gorilla who goes underwater and attacks Sandy, Patrick, and Spongebob. That's pretty unexpected, but funny as hell.

This is the best episode I have ever seen out of Spongebob, and that's saying something because I have seen many great episodes. I even did a top 12 list video. Click here to watch: http://blip.TV/ thatunfunnyguy/media-manslaughter-top -12-spongebob-squarepants -episodes-6282928
