SpongeBob is afraid of Halloween, so Patrick encourages him to take a light-hearted approach to the holiday instead, and to find what is scary funny. The Flying Dutchman doesn't like this, so he takes SpongeBob and Patrick to his ship and tries to scare the former. It doesn't work, so he takes the souls of SpongeBob's friends and imprisons them in cages to scare them. When SpongeBob realizes this, he's properly scared, but he gets the marionette from Sandy's treedome and goes back up to the Flying Dutchman's ship to save them. When he arrives, his initial plan fails, but the Dutchman goes into SpongeBob's brain and ends up being scared himself. The Dutchman's ship disappears, SpongeBob's friends are saved and they all decide that what's scary is just scary.

Happy Halloween!
13 October 2017 | by ericstevensonSee all my reviews

This much hyped Halloween episode is done entirely in stop motion and it simply looks gorgeous. We get to see all the classic characters rendered this way and as a full half hour episode this is quite impressive. I will admit that the episode as a whole wasn't quite that funny. Still, it delivered the goods because of how beautiful it looked. Nobody seems to be acting horribly out of character. I knew that the Flying Dutchman would appear in this. Apparently, it's been awhile since he appeared. The plot is that the Dutchman brings Patrick and SpongeBob on his ship to scare the latter.

Things get high stakes when he ends up capturing the souls of all of SpongeBob's friends. I like how they use an interesting plot that seemed kind of obvious. Plankton's soul actually tries teaming up with the Flying Dutchman. Villain team ups are all too common but we've never had one like this. The Dutchman simply forces Plankton to become his lackey instead of the other way around. The funniest part is probably when SpongeBob uses an actual math equation to determine that scary equals scary. ***1/2
