Episode 17: Aargh!/Rock Bottom
18 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

These episodes are pretty good, especially Rock Bottom.

"Aargh!" SpongeBob, Patrick and Mr. Krabs look for the Flying Dutchman's buried treasure. This is a pretty funny episode. Some gags are laugh-out loud funny, including Patrick not reading a compass right and Mr. Krabs's map. 9.5/10

"Rock Bottom" SpongeBob and Patrick take the wrong bus home from an amusement park and end up in a mysterious city called Rock Bottom. This episode is extremely funny with all of SpongeBob's harebrained attempts to get back to Bikini Bottom not working at all. The Don't Run After A Bus gag is also hilarious. 10/10

Whole Episode: 9.75/10
