This episode was actually pretty good imo. This episode started out as good deeds, SpongeBob helping people out which wasn't anything too special. And all ended with Sandy preparing a play of them reenacting the Mermaidman and BarancleBoy lost episode.

I also liked how Old Man Jenkins at the end called everyone on stages "Kids" when he said "You kids get of my yard!" It was really funny. 9/10 rating.

November 3, 2018 Correction: Actually, Old Man Jenkins said "What are you kids doing out here in my outdoor amphitheater?"

It's sick how everyone always takes advantage of SpongeBob.

Also him using a VCR and not DVD or Blu-ray or some DVR service?

I got some Overbooked vibes from this, but that’s not a bad thing. There were plenty of great jokes, tons of cool environments explored, and a nice message of repaying someone for their good deeds. This is honestly the heartiest episode since Mimic Madness.

Why didn't SpongeBob just look for a Mermaid Man fan with a recording of the episode?
They’d probably think he was a chump.

It felt a little like Overbooked mixed with Best Day Ever, but that's not a bad thing as this episode was a lot better!

Additionally, I'm happy to see Mrs. Puff be nice to SpongeBob again

Yeah this was pretty good, it did feel like Overbooked mixed with Best Day Ever, but I enjoyed both of them so it worked out for me, got a kick out of Old Man Jenkins showing up.

Also I could relate to Spongebob as I often frequent the Lost Media Archive and it always excited me when some piece of media that was thought to be lost randomly shows up.

This felt a lot like a send off to MermaidMan and BarnacleBoy. If it was, then it was definitely a great one. Like others have said, it's the Best Day Ever done better, and I like all the allusions in here. The little play at the end was entertaining as well as heartwarming. Great episode.
