Ghost Host: The Flying Dutchman takes up residence at SpongeBob's house where he proceeds to scare, startle and surprise SpongeBob around the clock. Eventually all the spooky shenanigans grow old, and SpongeBob is no longer afraid of the Dutchman. This creates a panic for the old ghost who now fears that he has lost his scary touch. So SpongeBob decides to lend a hand and help the Flying Dutchman learn to scare people again. Chimps Ahoy: The Chimpanzee beneficiaries of Sandy's undersea treedome are paying a visit to see what progress she has made with her inventions. But Sandy doesn't think any of her work will satisfy the chimps, and if they don't like what she's invented Sandy could lose her funding forcing her to leave Bikini Bottom. SpongeBob and Patrick decide to help their distraught friend by taking over her work and finishing her inventions. Written by NAS

In "Ghost Host," the Flying Dutchman tries feebly to scare Larry at the gym; when Spongebob thinks that Larry is buying it, Larry's attention is actually drawn towards his flabby chest muscle, which he refers to as his "latissimus dorsi." The latissimus dorsi is located in the back; he was pointing to the pectoralis major. See more »

For Ghost Host - Is This Supposed To Be Funny, For Kids?
17 February 2013 | by (Stourport, Worcestershire, England, Europe, Earth) – See all my reviews

In Ghost Host, the flying dutchmans ship breaks & stays with Spongebob. He loses his scare & needs to regain it. Now hears why I really got to ask.

1. The dutchman makes it looks like his house is on fire 2. He pretends to eat Gary 3. He gives him tentacles 4. Ghosts come out of some of his things.

Now for the worst things about it. 2nd scariest part: the end, Squidwards Mom asks him why he didn't call him & then her face asks, then a large clarinet blows in his ears & The dutchman flings him in to his art gallery. A Large monster with a bajillion eyes eats him & sends to his living room where he encounters a Giant Demonic Spongebob whos eyes slither out & spiders come out of it revealing the Dutchman.

The scariest moment is the pop-ups if a toddler was watching this, he would have nightmares for YEARS.
