This probably might be my favorite episode of all time, especially the Patchy parts. These Patchy parts were funny, and so is the ways that the sponge tries to fly.

10/10

I think I've started to warm up to this episode. I once considered it the worst of the Season but when I re-watched it I started to like it more. I don't think it's good. But it's not terrible either. It's just okay. Consider that rant I made in my S3 review kind of invalid.

This really is a heart-warming special IMO, it feels like a real Broadway musical (and it did become one actually). It is a little lacking on jokes, but as I stated it is heart-warming, cute, and a beautiful moral of friendship which is shown (and sung) at the ending. 8.5/10

I'm watching this right now and, I noticed... doesn't Ms.Puffs' snail that fell from the tree look like Squidward's snail Snellie?

One of my least favorite Season 3 episodes along with As Seen On TV. I just don't like the musical episodes that much. I also thought that this was more like a soap opera instead of a comedy. Besides the Patchy segments, this episode was just not funny and the Bikini Bottomites are probably at their meanest here. I'll give this episode a D-

I do not like this episode in the slightest. I don't know if I'll ever make a full review on it, so I'll keep this short. The townspeople are insufferable and hard to watch, especially that scene where they care more about the pants than SpongeBob. Everything just feels like it's at a standstill in the episode. It feels like nothing happens. I mean, I know it's a special, but that's how I feel. I'm not going to give it a number rating.

Although there are some reedeming qualities in this episode, the episode itself wasn't really good and it is such a weak episode for Season 3. The majority of the characters were extremely unlikeable towards SpongeBob and he's already done many favors to them and they don't care about his dreams of flying. He wanted to be alone and fly with the jellyfishes or more specifically, have fun with them. Yeah, I already posted here twice, but I'm trying to make this opinion more informative and slightly less overexaggerating. The Patchy scenes actually made me interested in this episode and I was quite suprised on that and the song was actually good compared to a few other songs in other episodes, but for a Season 3 episode, it isn't really amusing. I never really enjoyed it as a kid, but as there are some interesting parts here and there, I think it is a really average episode and some of the weakest specials in the series. I thought this was my least favorite Season 3 episode, but that goes to Party Pooper Pants.

Not the best but still good for what it was, i loved the ending song, And has arguably the best Patchy segments of the whole show.

 

7.5/10

Episode: The Sponge who could Fly (S3-E59)

 

I LOVE THIS EPISODE!!! I remember this episode when I was a child with autism. The Patchy scenes were hilarious, the songs are bright, catchy and sweet to hear; and the ending was great. But there are problems: Everybody's taking advantage of SpongeBob. After that, Old Man Jenkins (a.k.a. Cannonball Jenkins) blow up SpongeBob's inflatable pants and crashed into the ground. In the aftermath, they buried SpongeBob's broken inflatable pants. Yeah I don' care about these problems but it's PERFECT for me!!!

 

Final Score = 10/10   :fun:  :imagination:  :sbpopcorn:  :sbhappy:   :sbdance:  :sbparty:  :laughsquid:  :bandgeek:  :withasmile:  :squidwhoo:  :sandyomg:  :squilliam3:

PERFECTION. This episode is a 5-star class!!!

The is another one of those specials that focuses way too much on plot. There's a few decent gags, but it gives off an eerie, almost dramatic feel to it. Why on Earth would I want a drama out of a comedy show? Granted it has some OK gags, but some of them don't land just because it feels so soap operaish, which is not good for a 22 minute special.

 

The plot isn't exactly the best ether, the first part reminds me of Nature Pants with him wanting to be with the jellyfish. Then the second reminds me a lot of Can You Spare a Dime and how they are abusing his kindness. If you're going to do something interesting with a plot for a special, I'd prefer it if it didn't feel like a rehash, Nature Pants wasn't something I even liked to begin with. It's not the most copy+paste of a story, but a special's plot is supposed to be something, well, SPECIAL.

 

The Bikini Bottomites are easily the biggest issue with this, they constantly make fun of him for having dreams, in a way similar to Bubble Buddy (except much more warranted then). We see people who have unfulfilled dreams, and it's actually kind of sad. Then when he does fly, everyone just abuses his powers, which I guess makes sense, but they do it without a single bit of remorse, kind of sad. Then they willingly shoot Jenkins at him cause he quote on quote "owes them favors". They hurt SpongeBob and bury his pants instead, which is pretty messed up and not funny at all. They made them so mean-spirited for the plot that it just feels off, feels like their plot needed it so they changed the character's around, they're never THIS mean in any other episode so it feels really forced.

 

Also when he starts flying, I'm kind of confused, he wants to go to Jellyfish Fields, so why does he go around helping people willingly at first? Seems kinda (again) forced, considering the whole point was to be with the jellyfish.

 

The message is OK but it makes civilians look pretty bad. There is a good feel to it when the jellyfish help him up, but the plot isn't the best, and though I'd say it's funny enough, it's not funny enough to go above and beyond mediocrity. The funniest part was when he got prank called by "Joe Mama", and he doesn't get it, that was pretty good, but parts of this drag and I find myself pretty bored out of my mind, and at the same time experiencing a mellow tone. His songs are nice, but compared to Underwater Sun and The Very First Christmas, it just doesn't compare- it also continues a dramatic tone.

 

As for the Patchy segments? I like them. He has a small conflict and I like how it ties into the episode, it makes it feel special. EXCEPT ONE THING- THAT WALK CYCLE. I don't get why people like this. It's just him walking on a street doing random posses for like a minute, it goes on way too long and there is just nothing to it. Patchy's reactions is pretty funny, but why couldn't that be accomplished in like 15-20 seconds not a minute. It's the only thing I legitimately skip in a SpongeBob episode. It's the Conway Twitty of SpongeBob for me.

 

So yeah I think that this episode is fine with a few flaws, which in my book amounts to MEDIOCRE: 5.1/10

Well, I don't like it, but I wouldn't say it's any Truth or Square.

That title would have actually improved the episode for me, my biggest issue is that it feels too dramaish, and just that change would make a whole world of difference.

 

Also people wish you a happy birthday and you instead opt to talk about a mediocre SpongeBob episode? Only sbm admins lmao.

Ugh. I hate this episode. Why is it even a special? I've never seen this episode until I found it on dvd so even Nickelodeon doesn't like to air it. It's kind of boring and there's nothing here to make it a special. At least Atlantis SquarePantis and Truth or Square actually felt like a special. Just adding in Patchy shouldn't make it a special. I feel like this episode was going to be a regular episode, but Nickelodeon had to have another special. 3.5/10

One of my least favorite Season 3 episode, the overall episode was unfunny except for Patchy part and the Bikini Bottomies were mean spirited. Not a good special like Party Pooper Pants.

4/10

It's mediocre. The song is nice, and the overall plot is cool, but I would have liked it better if the townspeople weren't such jerks and the episode could've used a few more jokes.
