Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The scene where Spongebob and Patrick nearly get executed is frightening for very young kids.
  • Near the end, Patrick, Sandy, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs all reveal the backstory of how they met Spongebob as a child. All stories are very heartwarming and sad for mostly adults rather than kids. The saddest one is Squidward's.
