The best episode ever.SPOILERS
14 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is by far the very best episode of Spongebob ever.

Bubblestand is about Spongebob and Patrick blowing bubbles. The bubble stand bubbles cost 25 cents. Squidward does not like that the bubbles cost 25 cents. Spongebob says you need to do a special moves to blow bubbles. Squidward does not do the special moves. Squidward doesn't make a perfect bubble. But then Squidward does the special moves. Squidward makes a perfect bubble. He floats away.

Ripped Pants is about Spongebob and Sandy go to the Goo Lagoon. Then Spongebob pretends to be other people in Bikini Bottom. Then Spongebob rips his pants. He becomes popular because of it. Then he pretends to drown and he becomes hated. Then he meets other losers on the beach. Then they sing a song.

This episode is great, and I loved the Ripped Pants song.
