Scaredy Pants: It's Halloween again, and like every year before, SpongeBob is the easiest scare in Bikini Bottom. This year SpongeBob is determined to turn the tables and scare everyone at Mr. Krabs' Halloween party. With Patrick's help, SpongeBob devises what is sure to be the scariest costume ever. Although SpongeBob's costume scares no one, his presence does summon Bikini Bottom's most feared ghostly legend - The Flying Dutchman, who is appalled by the way SpongeBob is portraying him. I Was a Teenage Gary: Squidward reluctantly agrees to take care of SpongeBob's pet snail, Gary, for a few days while SpongeBob is out of town. When Squidward's negligence causes Gary to become ill, SpongeBob accidentally takes a dose of the snail medicine, which causes SpongeBob to turn into a snail. Squidward is now faced with taking care of both Gary, and the impossible SpongeSnail. Written by NAS

Classic Halloween Episodes of "SpongeBob".
30 October 2015 | by (Wyckoff NJ) – See all my reviews

Happy Halloween Guys today I'm reviewing the Halloween episode of "SpongeBob" called Scared Pants/I Was a Teenage Gary. In Scared Pants: SpongeBob is sick of everybody always scaring him every year. So he and Patrick try to Scare Everybody in the "The Bikini Bottom" as "The Flying Dutchman" who later comes to "The Krusty Krab's" Halloween Party. Anyway In I was a Teenage Gary: SpongeBob and Patrick want to go to a Jelly Fishing convention but he needs someone to watch Gary so he asks Squidward to watch him and he agrees to but ends up just sun-tanning and when SpongeBob and Patrick come back he tries to make Gary eat the Snail Food but he doesn't and SpongeBob ends up calling the Doctor and he tells SpongeBob to inject the Snail Shot into Gary. So SpongeBob tells Squidward to hold down Gary and he tries to but he is worried the shot will hurt him and Squidward ends up inject into SpongeBob and he turns in a snail and Squidward also in the end turns into snail and Patrick throws a boot at Squidward which was funny. BOOTOM LINE: A Great Halloween episode of SpongeBob to watch around Halloween. Anyway giving this episode a 10 out 10 stars. Happy Halloween. BYE.
