More detail and development would have been nice, but I don't really mind the simplicity of the plot, to be honest. Then again, it's been a while since I've seen this episode.CowBob RanchPants said:It definitely did not feel like the length of a special. The plot felt just too simple and if it was in my own hands I would dive deeper into SpongeBuck's journey in the desert. I know it's a kid's show, but even the specials in the past felt more satisfying than this one was. Maybe they could have cut down on the beginning at the KK? The SpongeBob part of the plot was apart of the moral support to this. SpongeBob gained knowledge, respect and of course confidence in his family and himself. But still, they could have made scenes shorter to have more detailed scenes. From the top of my head, I'd probably say this special gives me the most empty feeling besides Clash of Triton.
What about you guys? Would you change the plot around?
The designs were great, I really liked how they set up the little town and chose to give accents to the ancestors of SpongeBob and Patrick. The set up is really what liked about it, and what you said the plot has little to do with why I like it too. Oh and don't forget all those clever little shorts they had. Spurskating especially is my favorite because it's a unique sport just like Jellyfishing.More detail and development would have been nice, but I don't really mind the simplicity of the plot, to be honest.

The more I think about it, the more I think you might be right, though. I think I liked this episode more for the humor, the designs and the references to Westerns. The plot had very little to do with why I liked it.
It's the same with The Sponge Who Could Fly, Ugh, SB VS The Big One, Party Pooper Pantsspongebobfan64 said:I never see this that much on Nickelodeon because they barely air the episode
