Season: 4

Episode: Funny Pants

This episode was kinda bad. Spongebob's laughing was annoying (his crying even more). I don't agree with people saying that Spongebob's obnoxiousness in this episode is his character trait because that character trait was flanderized in this episode. There were some funny jokes. 4.5/10

This is a guilty pleasure of mine. It's a little annoying with all the bayayayayayaya (Spongebob's Laughter) in the episode.
Other than that, this is a good episode, the jokes are funny and I like it how he's laughing about: Another Day Another Nickel.

7.5/10

Meh for me , I wasn't annoyed by the laughing and crying but I did not find this episode hilarious or funny or whatever...The only funny scene was the scene with the pie on this poor fish's face :P that was funny indeed!!! But, not that bad for me..I mean what annoyed me in this episode is the UNFAIRNESS again...SpongeBob was laughing ALL THE ::dolphin noise:: TIME and did not burn out the laugh box but Squidward laughed for 5-6 seconds and burned out his laugh box...that was unfair and I got irritated by this!! >_< The ending was MEH too...Seeing SpongeBob being depressed because of a myth was BAD too.. But, still, there were some good quotes here like the quote I said before and another one with Mr.Krabs showing SpongeBob money in order to laugh :P , I will give it a 5/10 :|

Honestly this one grew on me. The excessive laughter is a bit much but I think passed that it's a decent story with some charming jokes and moments.

6/10

Funny Pants is mediocre, we can all feel this episode has a good plot of SpongeBob's endless laughing... but there are almost little to no jokes that are funny and is nothing too much more than an average episode, what I would say though is that the ending was actually surprising (I did not expect it) 7.5/10

This episode could have been great, but they ruined it. I like the whole premise, but they ruined it with the fact SpongeBob's laugh is squeaky the whole entire time. It gets really irritating, and it ruined this episode for me.

Ranking so far:
1. The Lost Mattress (A)
2. Fear of a Krabby Patty (A)
3. Skill Crane (A)
4. Have You Seen This Snail? (A)
5. Krabs vs. Plankton (B)
6. Selling Out (B)
7. Shell of a Man (C)
8. Funny Pants (D)
9. Good Neighbors (E)

I'll admit, this episode is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. Sure, the audio can be a bit of a pain, but if you can look past that, it's actually quite a solid episode. The plot is pretty creative, and there are a number of jokes in this episode I think work quite well. Spongebob's character is a bit inconsistent, and I'm not a big fan of the ending, but otherwise this one is pretty alright imo.

A good episode. It's funny that this is an episode focused on Spongebob's laugh and how it annoys others. It's amusing seeing Squidward prank Spongebob and him thinking he shouldn't laugh. There's some good comedy when Spongebob tries to not laugh. The "laugh box" is hilarious and memorable too. I like how Squidward sort of gets his comeuppance when his real laugh box breaks and is fixed with a part of Spongebob's. The ending is also funny where Squidward laughs like Spongebob and he goes crazy.

This is probably the most underrated episode of the entire series. I really liked the majority of the jokes in this one, such as Spongebob becoming exposed to all the old-timey humor in creative twists, and I also liked the concept of Squidward thinking of ways to stop Spongebob's annoyance. It didn't blow my mind, but it's a good story that kept my attention. I was initally split down the middle on the ending, but, it is pretty selfless of Spongebob to literally donate his larynx to help Squidward, and honestly Squidward does kind of deserve Spongebob's laughter.
So yeah, overall decent episode, although what kind of bugs me about it is the presentation. The animation itself is fine, but the sound mixing is pretty weak. There are a bunch of reused audio clips, as well as music that overlaps itself in the episode, but most jarring is that in one of the hospital scenes, Squidward's line of "Where am I?" gets kind of cut off for no real reason.

An okay episode to pair with a great one. This one wasnt very funny. The "nickel" joke wasnt very funny. But the laugh-box scene was funny.

Krabs Vs. Plankton (Great)
Have you Seen this Snail? (Great)
Shell of a Man (Great)
Selling Out (Great)
The Lost Mattress (Okay)
Funny Pants (Meh)
Skill Crane (Meh)
