Storyline

Hooky: When the mysterious "hooks" (fishing, that is) suddenly appear in Bikini Bottom, Mr. Krabs warns SpongeBob to stay away from them. Despite Mr. Krabs' scary tales of sea creatures winding up in gift shops or packed cans, Patrick convinces SpongeBob that there's no risk and the boys tempt fate by riding the hooks and jumping off for fun. Mermaidman and Barnacleboy II: SpongeBob wins the big prize from his favorite TV show, "The Adventures of Mermaidman and Barnacleboy" - The Conch Signal! Now he can summon the semi-retired super heroes whenever there's an emergency. Rather than keep getting signals for "emergencies" like opening jars, the duo take SpongeBob along for their patrol to see what real crime fighting is all about. Written by NAS

Hilarious episodes with surprise cameo!
19 February 2007 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This pair of episodes ranks with the best of the entire series. What just tickled me was the out-of-nowhere live-action insert of the fisherman in "Hooky." It is a credited appearance by John Laurie and film director Jim Jarmusch, apparently stock footage from Laurie's short-lived IFC series "Fishing With John." I've never read how this appearance was agreed upon, except that I guess Laurie and Jarmusch are fans of "Spongebob" and Stephen Hillenburg and co. were fans of "Fishing With John." If anyone has any background on this, do share! And finally, I love the use of Sam Spence's NFL Films macho, adrenaline-laced music as a background to the anemic antics of the moth-eaten duo of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy!
