"Mr. Krabs, you can't talk to Squidward like that!"
18 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sailor Mouth is another classic from Nickelodeon. This one is about SpongeBob and Patrick copying a swear word after reading a Dumpster. Patrick tells SpongeBob that it just makes sentences fancier, so they begin to use it until Mr. Krabs gives them strict rules never to say it again. The bleeps are funny and I love the parts where SpongeBob thinks Mr. Krabs insulted Squidward, what SpongeBob defines graffiti, ("Dumpster writing-the word of our people")and when the garbage man asks SpongeBob if he kisses his mother with his "trash mouth." 9/10 Artist Unknown is an average episode of SpongeBob. This one is about SpongeBob going to an art class taught by Squidward. SpongeBob makes a perfect sculpture, which causes jealousy to arrive in Squidward who kicks him out. However, when an artist tells him how good it was, he's off to the dump to find SpongeBob. It's not as funny as Sailor Mouth, but it is pretty good. This episode's funniest parts where SpongeBob showing Squidward his Leap Frog drawing and Squidward saying that his image will replace housewives. -8.5 My rating: 9/10
