Texas: Sandy comes down with a case of the blues and SpongeBob is determined to find out why and what he can do about it. The cure proves a little more challenging than expected when it turns out Sandy is homesick for 'good 'ol Texas' and plans to go back home. SpongeBob and friends decide to bring a little bit of Texas right to Bikini Bottom. Walking Small: The evil Plankton is up to no good once again when he tries to manipulate SpongeBob into becoming aggressive and mean in order to get more out of life. SpongeBob discovers that just because people obey you they don't necessarily respect you. Besides, it's just more fun to be nice to people and have them like you. Written by NAS

Episode 18: Texas/Walking Small
18 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These episodes are good. A majority of the gags made me laugh.

"Texas" Sandy gets homesick and decides to move back to Texas, but SpongeBob won't let her leave without a fight. The way this episodes unfolds is pretty funny. I like the very last lines and I think they're my favorite part of the episode. 9/10

"Walking Small" This episode didn't completely deliver. Plankton is building a Chum Bucket Mega Bucket on Goo Lagoon, so he enlists SpongeBob to get rid of the people at the beach. This episode didn't have very many great moments and wasn't consistent. I do like the part where SpongeBob does all the bad stuff, though. 8/10

Whole Episode: 8.5/10
