Hey folks, Valkor here. And it's been a SpongeBob kinda year here in the house of Val. We kicked things off with Runaway Roadtrip, followed it up with the Holiday 3 Pack, and now thanks to the folks at Paramount Home we get a third go around with SpongeBob SquarePants the Complete 7th Season.
That's right SpongeBob is back for a seventh season of hilarious, underwater hijinks along with all your favorite characters such as Patrick, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, his daughter Pearl, Krabs's nemesis Plankton, squirrel-friend Sandy, and many more. There's dancing, singing, treachery, and all sorts of choas on the funny crammed into 4 discs - 50 episodes in total, which is just over 9 hours of fun. Highlights include:
Karate Star – SpongeBob teaches his pal Patrick karate. However his karate-chopping just won't quit, affecting all of Bikini Bottom.
Hide and Then What Happens – SpongeBob and Patrick play a game of hide-n-seek, but Patrick pretty much forgets the game and heads home, leaving SpongeBob to search the world looking for him.
The Cent of Money – Upon learning of Gary's (SpongeBob's pet snail) uncanny ability to attract coins, Mr. Krab takes advantage of the situation to fill his pockets.
Tunnel of Glove – Pearl and SpongeBob get caught on the "Tunnel of Glove" ride. Love is in the air? Not according to Pearl.
The Main Drain (just the name cracks me up!) – SpongeBob and Patrick are off to discover the mystery of "the main drain" only to discover that it's real and that Plankton and Krabs were responsible for the once destruction of Bikini Bottom.
That Sinking Feeling – Squidward is tired of SpongeBob and Patrick playing in his yard and forbids the two from ever stepping foot on his land. So the twosome decides if that can't play on his land, they may as well go under it, which causes Squidward's house to sink.
In terms of extras, you get animated shorts (or brief clips) from episodes "Back to the Past", "SpongeBob's Last Stand", "Legends of Bikini Bottom", and "The Great Patty Caper". With that out of the way, let's check in with the TOV Breakdown!
I can't believe I watched all 9 hours of this 4 disc set! But you know what? I'd do it again because the episodes fly by so fast, you won't even think about the time – SpongeBob's 7th season is just so damn entertaining. I can truly see how adults can enjoy the antics of this crazy sponge because there's some mannerisms, some subtle innuendos that only adults will catch and children won't think twice about. I'd worry if my nephew (who watches the show) started calling me "Ter-Bear"… I'd go out and get him some baseball equipment… and a playboy… maybe a cigar… what? What did I say? The show still airs on the Nickelodeon Channel, but if you need that quick fix, then this is a great pick up.
I still don't understand how if every episode takes place underwater, how does one start a fire? Sweat? Drip water? Form a puddle of water? WHAT IS UP WITH THAT!!!?? Ok, I shouldn't try to figure that out, I mean this is a cartoon right? BUT THAT MAKES NO SENSE!!! *huff, huff*
