This episode is in a serious need of more attention, there were a lot of jokes that worked and the plot was actually pretty interesting. It also had some good heart-felt moments as well. Not my favorite season 1 episode but certainly a very enjoyable episode.

8/10

Honestly, this is my favorite S1 episode. It has a fun and interesting concept and a lot of good jokes. I think it's underrated, maybe because it's one of the few pre-movie episodes Pieguy thought was meh.
You said exactly what I think!!!!This episode is amazing, but ofcourse because of a low rating by a standard it got hated....UNDERRATED!!This episode screams ''I am underrated :('' Honestly, HOW IN THE WORLD, can it be worse than it's sister episode ''MuscleBob BuffPants'' that it didn't contain ANY laugh moments or anything quality....!!!! In compare with this, that it includes wayyy too funny moments (ex.Mr.Krabs holding a tissue and saying ''Oh Squidward,we came right away we learned you are dead'' :P (that's the translate of the Greek dub, I haven't watched it in English..), Sandy holding a wreath, Squidward being ''bold'' , the watermelon scene'' ONE of the funniest season 1 episodes...it's one of my top episodes as well....10/10

This is probably the most overlooked episode in the entire series, it works so well and even though it's in season 1 which is a bit weaker, everything hits so well to all the jokes like telling Squidward to get into a coffin or having him float up to land in the ending because the comedic timing works so well and he gets his just desserts how it should be. This is honestly somewhere in my top 10, not in my top 3 like I used to have it, but I'll fight for this episode any day of the week.

This was the beginning of when Sandy showed how much she cared about Squidward

I am NOT a 'Squandy' shipper BTW

I don't ship any characters from anything

Just stating the facts

A very overlooked episode that is an unmistakably Season 1 story and atmosphere combination. Squidward commanding SpongeBob and Patrick to the melody of Seaweed is a real treat, and so is the ending's use of stock footage. I also loved the fake funeral held for Squidward, with the scene with the coffin being spot-on, and even Squidward's epitaph being funny, especially his scream afterwards. If only we got the rest of it. I always pop this episode into the player, as it is a great breath of fresh air. 10/10

One of the most underrated episodes of the entire show. It featues a lot of nice gags, a lot of nice atmosphere, and a lot of other charming qualities that prevent it from being anything but mediocre or bad. This episode's plot is one of the most stupid ones yet, but like MM&BB IV, if you can tell good gags with your stupid story, then it works. As long as your plot doesn't necessarily ruin your gags (like Bubble Buddy or Wormy for me), then it works! I like this episode I think it's good. Not going to give a rating right now, though.

This one was funny, but I felt that it was a bit boring at times. Not much really happens apart from Squidward getting Spongebob and Patrick to do all these chores. I liked seeing how much fun Squidward was having commanding them though. Also, Spongebob and Patrick are a bit too incompetent here in my opinion. The ideas here were good, and they do a good job with them in some cases, but I think they could've been executed better.

Decent episode (6/10)

Also, anyone else notice how Squidward has an elevator in this episode?
