Three kids dawning the different colors blue, red, and purple compete in relatively cool-looking olympic-style games to achieve as many points as they can. At the end of every episode, they climb a big fake mountain, braving tumbling rocks made out of styrofoam, sparkling glitter, shooting steam, and loud sounds while trying to hit all the "Actuators" along their way to the summit including the ...

Dee Bradley Baker,
Trevor Eyster has gone on record saying that in the real world Sponge Harris would be Vice President of Apple or Microsoft. Ironically enough the Sponge character is somewhat based on Bill Gates and Gates looked very much like Eyster when he was twelve. See more »
"Salute Your Shorts" (SYS) began with all the stereotypical characters. It became something else entirely. With inspired mayhem like a visit from Ug's horrific niece to a capture the flag game gone "Apocalypse Now," SYS is a sister show to "Hey Dude" - somewhat realistic, but always funny. The use of classical music (such as Tchaichovsky's "Marche Slave") as a soundtrack in many places gives the show a nice ironic, surreal feel that current Nick comedies sorely lack.
Capture the Flag - Very cool spoofs of many war movies. Go Donkey Lips and ZeeZee!
Wrestling Team - Seeing Donkey Lips and Sponge trying to make the team is hilarious and heartwarming, too.
A night at the movies - A change of setting means cinema based hilarity.
