I just have to say; I saw this and was really annoyed by how SB was being pressured to change himself, just to make others happy.
And then he tries PHYSICALLY changing himself like getting rid of his freckles and trying to not be square, etc. And as he changed more it just made me upset/more annoyed :(
And I'm glad he changed back in the end; but other than that, the ending was just... wat. Looking back, I kinda wish there was a more "being yourself is ok/you're fine the way you are" moral ending; kinda like what Abrasive Side did with Sandy telling SB that, before the whole Grandma-ending-thing.
I love this episode. When I first saw this episode I was surprised to see SpongeBob without holes, buck teeth, nor freckles. Whenever I see this episode I laugh real hard, especially at the part where SpongeBob criticizes Squidward. Squidward being normal is also funny. I also think the episode has a good lesson that normal is boring and our quirks make us special.
That is kind of harsh, but I am pretty sure you are joking. I think that if anyone tells SpongeBob to be normal, he should sing the first line of "Harder To Breath" by Maroon 5, which is, "How dare you say that my behavior's unacceptable!"
