I'm surprised nobody made a topic about this episode yet.

Anyway, this is one of my favourite episodes from Season 3! The Patchy the Pirate plot is hilarious, especially when he throws away all his SpongeBob merchandise in a rage! :lol: And the SpongeBob plot is just as funny, and I love the songs such as "He's Flying", they kinda made the episode feel like a musical. :)

However, with the "Remembering SpongeBob" scene, and also the ending where the Narrator says "SpongeBob will live on in our hearts and in our minds", I can't help but wonder whether this was originally intended to be the series finale episode.

Woah, I love this episode.
I love how Patchy reacts.
I remembered watching it when it first aired.
This episode was the best.
I never gave a episode this much but, 10/10!
The best of Season 3! :naughty:

Oh my gosh, for some strange reason I've been addicted to this episode over the last months (probably because of the catchy musical numbers :P). I like this episode because SpongeBob finds out his true superhero self. It shows you that even though some people or fish, don't believe in you, you should believe in yourself. I really wish that Nick didn't cut the episode short though. The Patchy the Pirate scenes were actually pretty good as well. One of my favorite episodes.

One of my favorite season 3 episodes. I lol'd at the scene after Spongebob fell and Patrick used a fire distinguisher on him.

This, along with Shanghaied*, was one of the 'legendary' episodes of SB for me back in the day, as CITV never aired it and Nick UK rarely ever showed it. The first time I saw it was when I was looking at a SB DVD and noticed it was on there. I bought the DVD just because it had that one episode on there. It is pretty funny and, being 8 or 9 at the time, I genuinely did think it was a lost episode found under a desk at Nickelodeon's studios, lol. Actually the first time I saw it was on the SpongyMedia site which had a clip of the walk cycle (the fake lost episode).

(*Shangehaied was never ever shown on Nick UK or CITV for many many years. It became something of a myth for me. I can't remember why it was banned, I think it was because it was too scary. However in 2007 or so they finally aired it.)

Can't say I liked it too much. Too little humor, too much song, too long. The walk cycles were better than the episode IMO.

This episode was OK. It was pretty bad overall, except for the fact that it had one of the show's best moments - the Walk Cycle.

Yeah, this episode puts me to sleep.


However, this is pretty much the only episode where Patchy got a laugh out of me. The walk cycles, and Patchy's reaction to them, were funny. Other than that, this episode is incredibly boring.

WHAT? This is the lost episode? I was so disappointed. I was expecting much better this special. This episode wasn't good actually, in fact this is the worst season 3 episode ever. This episode has potential in my opinion but I don't think the writers executed it very well. The main reason why I don't like this episode is Bikini Bottomies, also there were some boring parts in this episode. Bikini Bottomies were at their one of the worst in this episode. At first, they laugh at SpongeBob and call him birdman because SpongeBob's attempts to fly faied. Later they want SpongeBob to help them all time after SpongeBob get the ability to fly. When SpongeBob tries escape to Jellyfishing Fields, they tries to catch him because they want more favors of him.  You know what part really pissed me off more? The part when one of Bikini Bottomies said "No! He owes us favors!". WHAT? They owe SpongeBob favors, not SpongeBob. SpongeBob helps them because he is kind but they wanted SpongeBob to become their butler. Bikini Bottomies are the worst characters in pre-movie era without a doubt. I don't hate this episode because I laughed at some parts in this episode, I loved Patchy's segment and I liked the songs in this episode. Overall, one of the most disappointing SpongeBob specials and one of the worse pre-movie episodes. 6/10

The Walk Cycles are awesome. Other than that, this one is just ok IMO.

It is funny, and the Patchy stuff was good too, but the jokes were too....blah. I still like the episode, the idea of SpongeBob having the power to fly wasn't a bad idea. They just made the SpongeBob parts too....eh.

Am I the only one who always got creeped out by this part as a kid?







I mean, it literally gave me nightmares.

    THATS NO GOOD. Y'know, DONKEY KONG, you're stupid, you're ignorant and you're really GEY. First, you should really drink lots of toxic chemicals and GOTTA HELP and burn your face. Most important, YOU MUST DIE!!

Meh, I'm not a fan of the episode. It is kinda mean-spirited and kinda boring.

SpongeBob wants to fly and people put him down. He can fly and people need his help. The end.

I used to hate this episode when I was young. After watching it again, I like it a bit, only a little bit.



- The Walking Cycles.

- The Patchy segments.

- The songs.

- SpongeBob's character.

- Patrick's character.



- The Bikini Bottomies being mean-spirited.

- Some boring parts.

- This episode was a bit disappointing.


My least favorite Season 3 episode. 6/10.
