Time really does fly, as I can’t believe SpongeBob has been around for twenty years already. I love the characters and the show, and I’m glad it’s still entertaining those who were kids when it was released and can now share it with their kids. Nickelodeon is making this easy while also celebrating twenty years of nautical nonsense in the SpongeBob SquarePants: The Best 200 Episodes Ever DVD set.
This massive collection features 29 DVD discs that cover the first nine seasons of this hilarious show. From its humble beginnings with “Help Wanted” that sees our porous hero applying for a job at the Krusty Krab, to numerous other great episodes such as “Rock Bottom” which is both a fan and personal favorite of mine, these misadventures are sure to have you rolling around jellyfish fields in laughter.
If that wasn’t enough SpongeBob action for you, Nickelodeon has even thrown in a special edition 20th anniversary SpongeBob SquarePants poster. This sweet piece of art was made specifically for the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con that attendees had access to and features all 760 characters and creatures that have ever appeared on the show. So while it’s SpongBob’s party, the viewers are getting all of the gifts.
Speaking of which, they just keep coming in the form of some pretty cool extras on the discs, such as bonus short episodes that have aired throughout the years, as well as audio commentary on select episodes featuring the cast and crew going over the episode and sharing all sorts of fun anecdotes in the process. If there are any gripes, it’s having this set only released on DVD instead of Blu-ray. The video and audio are good enough, but it could’ve been so much better in high-definition.
If you love SpongeBob (and most people do) and want the ultimate collection of episodes, then look no further than the SpongeBob SquarePants: The Best 200 Episodes Ever set. With over 75 hours of content, special features, and a sweet collectible poster, you’ll want to binge watch this set with the family in a pineapple under the sea.
