Pressure: Sandy and SpongeBob get into a fierce competition doing extreme underwater sports. The longer they compete, the more people they attract and soon SpongeBob has a small following who cheer him on as their underwater mascot and poo poo Sandy because she is a "land lubber." The score is even until Sandy loses because her underwater suit can't handle the pressure from the great depths of the sea.

One of the best episodes of the SpongeBob SquarePants series!
26 September 2008 | by (Manchester, UK) – See all my reviews


Honestly, man, The Smoking Peanut is one of the most intriguing episodes of any TV series ever made. A childish and hysterically funny intrigue (in the most innocent, sweet and tender way). A conspiracy chiller.It has some clever twists and the end. Oh, my God! Who would've thought that the man who made cry the clam was... Well, I will give you one clue only: one of the most popular characters of the series. I know that this sounds like a neo-noir thriller movie review. But the episode is a neo-noir-cop thriller. The investigator Patrick and the scared suspect SpongeBob. This is like an old 40's conspiracy thriller. It is very well written, very original and clever. I'm telling you this is a real nail-bitter (ha ha) comedy.

Verdict: A nail-bitter-heart-stopping (yeah, sure, huh?) intrigue. A short and comedic (childish) thriller that should not be ignored.

What the HELL am I saying?! A CLASSIC!
