One of my favorite episodes!
9 June 2018 | by mattiasflgrtll6See all my reviews

I'm rather surprised there's no review for this yet. So I guess I'll be the first one.

Wormy: After Sandy goes away on a vacation, SpongeBob and Patrick take the responsibility to watch after her pet, who they name Wormy. At first they are having fun with their new friend, but after it hatches into a butterfly, they grow terrified of it.

Where do I start? I just love how ridiculously panicked everyone gets over a harmless butterfly, and that the close-ups resemble something like The Fly. The best joke of all is when the whole town is set on fire, with everyone running around screaming... and SpongeBob and Patrick are grateful they warned everyone or something really bad would've happened. A delightfully quirky and very well-executed story.

Patty Hype: After Mr. Krabs fails to get customers, he is desperately looking for a way to lure them back to The Krusty Krab. After his hilarious failed stunt of burying himself alive, he looks to SpongeBob for ideas. He's not convinced, but to his dismay his otherwise loyal employee starts a business himself...

This was my favorite of the two, and would *easily* make my top 10 list. It just had me in absolute hysterics. There are the gullible customers, like the guy whose favorite color is purple, and the fish who goes to watch a talking dog without knowing what a dog is. Krabs is well-characterized throughout, doing everything he can to make his customers give him "me money", but failing all the time. And the laughs never slow down, it's amazing right to the very ending, which is one of the funniest episode endings of all time. Just thinking about it makes me laugh already.

This is an excellent entry into an already excellent season.
