A Pal for Gary is the worst thing ever.
20 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

The first episode I could care less about. But it's sister episode. Oh. My. God. A Pal for Gary is freaking horrendous. In fact, I'd consider it the worst SpongeBob episode out there. Gary is tortured for no reason, SpongeBob is completely oblivious and annoying, and Puffy Fluffy is one of the scariest things I've ever seen from this show. This episode is so sadistic to Gary, it makes you wonder if this episode was made by Satan! So overall, it is one of the worst episodes of ANY Nickelodeon show I've ever seen. So whenever you see A Pal for Gary on TV, Either change the channel, turn off your TV, or smash your TV. I don't understand how this episode got a 3.7 rating. It deserves a 1.0 but even that's pushing it!
