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

Episode 13: Scaredy Pants/I Was A Teenage Gary
29 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These two episodes are Halloween-themed.

"Scaredy Pants" SpongeBob always gets scared on Halloween, so he decides to scare people to get them back. This episode isn't always drop-dead funny, but it is in a lot of parts, like when Patrick calls SpongeBob's brain his "pink hat" or when three trick-or-treaters call SpongeBob a haunted mattress. 10/10

"I Was A Teenage Gary" Squidward watches Gary over the weekend and forgets about him. The way this episode unfolds is hilarious. I especially like the end. Patrick appears for only about 5 seconds, but they're the best 5 seconds of the episode. 10/10

Whole Episode: 10/10
