Did You Know?


When Spongebob and Squidward think that Mr. Krabs is a robot they go to torture him. When a picture of the Krusty Krab is seen while a scuffle is heard, you can see customers at the door like they were running towards it, meaning that the creators used a picture of the same episode of when the customers were running towards the door.

Krab Borg/Rock-a-Bye Bivalve
22 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Krab Borg- In this episode, after watching a "late night scary movie," SpongeBob starts to become paranoid when he suspects that everything is an evil robot. At work, he and Squidward soon become convinced that, after a series of strange coincidences, Mr. Krabs is actually a robot bent on world domination. The jokes in this episode are very memorable. The best ones are either Mr. Krabs's "robot noises" or Squidward's "why couldn't an eleven year old see a pirate movie?" (It's a little cheesy if try to say like a normal joke, but the interaction between the characters in that scene make the scene hilarious.) 7.5/10 Note: The live-action character running from the robot on the movie is Dan Povenmire.

Rock-a-Bye-Bivalve- In this episode, SpongeBob and Patrick find a scallop that's too young to learn how to fly so they take it in as their own (SpongeBob takes up the role of a stereotyped housewife and Patrick takes up the role of a stereotyped husband). Inneundoes galore set up the story where SpongeBob is increasingly angry with Patrick because he won't do his part for the scallop. This is one of the funniest and possibly the most controversial episode. (It's a good thing that the censors didn't try to cut anything out or even ban it.) There several jokes; either physical humor or innuendos. The funniest parts of the episode is the running gag where Patrick is addicted to a TV show in which nothing happens but a character gets hit in the head with a coconut. This is a great episode, but I'm also a little mad about this. This is one of the reasons why people think that SpongeBob is gay.I'm very annoyed when people say something like this, but I'm also annoyed that on some of the new episodes it seems like they're trying to make SpongeBob gay and even I think it's weird how SpongeBob is stalking Squidward. 7.5/10
