Shuffleboarding: Mermaidman and Barnacleboy are booked to attend a shuffleboarding tournament, but they can't go because they're laid up in the hospital. So their #1 fans, SpongeBob and Patrick, offer to dress up as the superhero duo and attend in their place. But instead of just attending the shuffleboarding tournament, SpongeBob and Patrick decide that while they're dressed up as Mermaidman and Barnacleboy, why not try a little crime-fighting for one day? Professor Squidward: When Squidward is mistaken for his much more famous rival, Squilliam Fancyson, he is invited to teach a class at the most prestigious music school in Bikini Bottom. Squidward is happy to pretend to be Squilliam if it means he can teach a class of adoring fans-until SpongeBob and Patrick show up and nearly blow his cover. Written by NAS

One of the Worst

Shuffleboarding-In this episode, SpongeBob and Patrick cause injury to Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, just as they're about to have a guest appearance at a shuffle boarding contest, so they give SpongeBob and Patrick very bad costumes to fill in for them. Now, it's up to the mindless replacement dynamic duo to arrest perfectly innocently oblivious townspeople for no reason at all. They arrested kids for playing outside, a gullible jail warden for not finishing a Krabby Patty, an elderly lady for being too old (I never imagined SpongeBob doing that)and, finally, their hardest foe, Man Ray and his old lady friend who are just talking and getting their clothes clean at a laundromat. Really, that's exactly how this episode plays out. Three minutes in, Patrick is ready for the shuffle boarding contest, but SpongeBob tells him that they already won the contest. Patrick, just like the audience, has no recollection of this at all, but were both forced to say that it all happened when we see a trophy. Then, starts off an unoriginal and very clichéd story that gets no worse this time around. There aren't any good jokes in this episode at all. SpongeBob and Patrick were justified in being suspicious of Man-Ray, but they should have realized that he was legitimate when he was at a laundromat; well, the normal SpongeBob would have. Here, SpongeBob and Patrick are acting completely out of character. For example, as I mentioned before, SpongeBob arrests an old lady for being too old, but the normal SpongeBob has a deep respect for the elderly.Here's another thing, SpongeBob and Patrick are never punished for their misdoings, the real Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy are! The episode ends with SpongeBob saying a very meaningless and poor joke. 0.5/10 Professor Squidward- In this Squidward torture episode, Squidward is at one of Squilliam's concerts for some reason when he's mistaken for the real Squilliam, which he points out that he's not, but takes it back when he hears that Squilliam gets to teach a music class. In Squidward's music class, are a couple of normal children...and,guess who, none other than SpongeBob and Patrick. Squidward tells them that he "legally" changed his name to "Squilliam," as an excuse. Then, we see a couple of cheesy gags from SpongeBob and Patrick. But here's the worst part, the climax: it's very offbeat and SpongeBob and Patrick find a very strange interest in using a metronome and they move in its exact movement while a newscrew is going to interview Squidward. Then, comes a very bad ending that proves once again that everyone in Bikini Bottom is a moron except for Squidward, but Squidward is a victim of everyone's idiocy. 1/10
