SpongeBob B.C. (UGH): It is prehistoric Bikini Bottom, and we spend a day in the life of SpongeGar, Patar, and Squog. (Sponge, Pat, and Squidward's prehistoric alter-egos.) Thanks to the magic of an underwater thunderstorm, our three Neanderthal friends discover fire. After gorging themselves on barbecued-everything-they-could-find, the battle for who should control the fire ensues. Much scrambling and trickery results in the fire being extinguished, and the three cave neighbors go on about their days. Written by NAS

Very Funny
25 January 2009 | by DaytonMetroSoccerSee all my reviews

Okay, I laughed so hard watching this episode! It actually was funny. Yes, it was actually funny! It made me laugh, and I'm even more critical than Roger Ebert. I really did enjoy this episode. The plot revolves around Spongebob, Patrick, and Squidward back in the old days as cave-sea-animals. They discover fire, but begin to argue about it and then the episode explodes into fun for everyone.

It does feature Patchy the pirate (full body, not the stupid little cartoon version) and Potty, along with a robot from the future.

Overall, a funny episode with good laughs here and there and I'm sure even Roger Ebert will enjoy! 7/10
