As a child, I cannot think of anything I would've rather done then to curl up on the couch and watch Spongebob. It was a show that epitomized my childhood and I can still retrace specific events in an episode or recite memorable quotes. Here are a few of my favorite episodes that I believe are evergreen in quality and bring me back to my infant years.
The one where SpongeBob and Patrick get paint on Mr. Krabs' first dollar
This classic episode is where SpongeBob and Patrick are instructed to paint Mr. Krabs' house. While painting, they get a drip of paint on Mr. Krabs' first dollar. In the process of trying to get the blue paint off of the bill, they end up smearing it more. It is resolved in the end when they realize that it was waterproof paint (not quite sure how they were able to paint a house underwater with waterproof paint).
The one where SpongeBob and Patrick sell chocolate
Spongebob and Patrick go house to house selling chocolate in this episode. They come across this man that screams "chocolate" and end up running from this guy the whole time when all he wanted to do was buy some chocolate. One thing is for sure... the crusty, raspy-voiced old fish in this episode still gives me the creeps.
The one where SpongeBob and Squidward deliver a Krusty Krab pizza
Am I the only one that still gets the Krusty Krab pizza song stuck in my head on occasion? Yes? This episode stems from Mr.Krabs creating a pizza and sending SpongeBob and Squidward to deliver it. They have a rough time getting to the customer only to find out they forgot his soda he had ordered.
The one where Squidward moves into a squid-only neighborhood
This episode is when Squidward moves into an all-squid community and has a daily schedule that won't change. Seems perfect at first but then it turns into a complete nightmare. Meanwhile, SpongeBob and Patrick try and break Squidward out and hope to bring him back home.
The one with the Hash-Slinging-Slasher
It's the Hash-bringing... Hash-slinging...Bash-singing...Hash-Slinging-Slasher! When Squidward convinces SpongeBob that the Hash-Slinging-Slasher exists, they both get a fright when a scary figure walks through the door. Too bad it was just old man Jenkins with a spatula applying for a job at the Krusty Krab.
I cannot and will not emphasize it enough. Spongebob was a paramount part of my childhood and I will still forever idolize the creators of this silly but provocative television show. I hope one day my children have a show that they choose to watch which represents what Spongebob did to me.
