Episode 14: SB-129/Karate Choppers
18 June 2010 | by TVGuy3See all my reviews

These two episodes are very good and are some of the best of season 1.

"SB-129" Squidward tries to get away from SpongeBob and Patrick, and he accidentally freezes himself and you kind of have to watch the rest to get it. It's a really funny episode overall especially the can opener gag. 9.5/10

"Karate Choppers" SpongeBob and Sandy are dueling each other in karate 24/7, and it starts affecting SpongeBob's work and Mr. Krabs threatens to fire him. This episode was very funny. It had great gags like the talking hot sauce and the ending is pretty good too. 9.5/10 Whole Episode: 9.5/10
