"Finally season 3 is out! I've played the tartar sauce out of the first two seasons and it is nice to have some new episodes on DVD even though most of these I've seen numerous times on television. This DVD set is much more compact than the other two with streamline cases but does not sacrifice the cool artwork. I like the rustic design of the case covers with the woodwork of the Krusty Krab. It also takes up far less room than the bulky season 1 and 2 sets. And, for those disappointed with not getting HELP WANTED (the pilot episode) with season 1, it is offered here as a bonus on disc 3. Here are the season 3 episodes:
Disc 1: The Algae's Always Greener: Plankton uses his advanced technological creation to trade lives with Mr. Krabs (complete with shirts and pants) and discovers that being the father of Pearl and owning a business that employs SpongeBob may not be all it's cracked up to be. SpongeBob on Duty: White stuff on SpongeBob's nose makes Larry the Lobster mistake him for a fellow lifeguard. One problem: SpongeBob can't swim (????) Anyone else find something strange about this episode? Club SpongeBob: I've seen this show so many times on TV, I'm already sick of it. Anyway, SpongeBob, Squidward, and Patrick find themselves lost in the middle of nowhere with only a magic conch shell to guide them. My Pretty Seahorse: SB befriends a seahorse who threatens his job by eating everything in sight at the Krusty Krab. Just One Bite: One of my favorites! Squidward is the only one who can resist a krabby patty, until he tastes one. He then becomes addicted and even fantasizes about marrying one! Hilarious! The Bully: Flats the Flounder is the new student and decides to kick SB's butt. Nasty Patty: Mrs. Krabs and SB concoct the most vile krabby patty for who they think is a fake health inspector. Reminds me of a Fawlty Towers ep. Idiot Box: Squidward is skeptical that SB and Patrick can turn an ordinary cardboard box into an entertainment center through their imaginations. Mermaidman and Barnacle Boy IV: SB gets hold of MM's utility belt and chaos ensues. "Oh boy! A squidward action figure!" Doing Time: One of the craziest episodes. SB creates a wave of destruction (and cranberry juice) during his boating lesson and Mrs. Puff is arrested. SB and Patrick set out to break her out of the pen. Snowball Effect: Squidward takes a game of snowball war a bit too seriously. One Krab's Trash: Mr. Krabs sells SB a soda drinking hat and then is desperate to get it back when he finds out how much it's worth ("AAAA! A floating shopping list!"). As Seen on TV: SB appears in a Krusty Krab commercial for a split second and believes he is Mr. Celebrity. Can You Spare a Dime?: After being accused of stealing, Squidward quits his job and ends up penniless and on the streets. SB takes him in and Squid becomes accustomed with being waited on. This ep is the only time I've seen SB really lose it. No Weenies Allowed: Another of my favorites. SB tries to gain entrance into the Salty Spitoon where only the toughest sea creatures can join. Squilliam Returns: Squidward pretends he owns a five-star restaurant (a re-vamped Krusty Krab) to impress his successful rival.
Disc 2: Krab Borg: After watching a scary robot movie, SB is convinced Mr. Krabs is a robot. Rock-A-Bye Bi-Valve: SB and Patrick take care of an orphaned baby scallop. Patrick proves he's not the most devoted of fathers. Wet Painters: SB and Patrick must paint the inside of Mr. Krab's house without getting any paint on his wall hangings, particularly his first dollar. Excellent Patrick ep. Patrick and the candy machine is one of the funniest SB scenes ever. Krusty Krab Training Video: What every Krusty Krab new employee must see. Will the secret krabby patty formula be revealed? SponeBob's House Party: SB gets a party planning kit and has every detail scheduled. Luckily for his party guests, he gets locked out of his house. Chocolate With Nuts: Classic! SB and Patrick try to be entrepreneurs by selling chocolate bars door-to-door. The old "fishwife" and her mother are hilarious. Mermaidman and Barnacleboy V: Barnacleboy is tired of being treated like a kid and joins the dark side. Patrick, Sandy, SB, and Squid become not-so-super heroes. New Student Starfish: Patrick comes to boating class with SB and gets SB in trouble. Clams: Mr. Krabs celebrates earning his millionth dollar by taking his loyal crew clam fishing. SpongeBob B.C.: Prehistoric Spongegar, Patar, and Squog discover fire. Double ep. The Great Snail Race: SB forces Gary into a snail race with Squid's pedigree snail Snelly. Mid-Life Crustacean: "Like an old has-been, Look at you old man, you've got multiple chins `cause you're old." Mr. Krabs yearns to feel young again. SB and Patrick may help him feel too young. Born Again Krabs: A near-death experience causes Mr. Krabs to promise the Flying Dutchman he will no longer be a cheapskate or risk eternity in Davy Jones' locker. I Had an Accident: SB break his derriere and decides to spend all his time indoors. Funny until it gets to that stupid gorilla bit.
Disc3: Krabby Land: Mr. Krabs opens a crummy playground to lure children and their money to his restaurant. The camping Episode: SB and Patrick go on a daring camping trip right outside their houses. Squidward joins and is attacked by a sea bear. Missing Identity: SB loses his nametag and tries to get dim-witted Patrick to hep him re-trace his steps. Plankton's Army: One of my favorites. Plankton gets his relatives (who are not quite at the same intellectual level) to force Mr. Krabs to give him the krabby patty formula. The ingredients may be too shocking for him to handle. Lost Episode (The Sponge Who Could Fly): Double ep where SB dreams of flying with the jelly fish. Patchy the Pirate makes his always annoying appearance. SpongeBob Meets the Strangler: SB has the Tattletale Strangler arrested for littering and the Strangler vows revenge. Pranks A Lot: Patrick and SB buy invisible spray paint at the gag shop (they passed on the fake and real vomit) and start playing practical jokes."

"Barnes & Noble
These are some of the very best episodes, including the fan favorite ?Krusty Krab Training Video.? In this landmark episode, viewers get all the POOP (People Order Our Patties) on what it takes to work at the Krusty Krab. These shows are so emotional to me. My daughter and I ,who just recentley died from cancer, watched theses show for hours in the hospital together. Great shows to share with your family over and over again."
Awesome Collection, Not Perfect

"This season of SpongeBob is my second favorite after the 2nd season. The shows are all awesome, but it's a dissapointment that the special features keep getting more slim with each release.
The inclusing of the pilot episode is definatly a welcome addition as a bonus, although the quality is a little off compared to the rest of the episodes.
The packaging is an upgrade, but it's quite different than the last two seasons; this is both good and bad in my book. I don't really like when they change packaging types between seasons.
One final gripe is that the episode "One Last Bite" is edited for content although they play the full version on TV. There was a scene where Squidward snuck into the Krusty Krab and walked in through the front door and what he thought was a bucket of water fell on him that was propped up on top of the door. He then commented on how cheap Mr. Krabs was to not install an actual security system. He then smells gas and a match falls and sets him on fire...the same thing happens again when he enters the door into the door to the back room. It's really quite harmless compared to some other episodes, like where Squidward gets shrunk and cut in half with a pair of scissors and you can see his insides...how does that make sense?"
I LOVE SPONGEBOB!!!

"This is a great Spongebob set with all the episodes from the 3rd season including many special features! The packaging is great! On the inside there are characters in the show all in the Krusty Krab. On thing that bugs me is the episode listing on the back of the case is just a piece of paper. But otherwise, BUY THIS SET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
