Storyline

Fools in April: It's April Fools Day, one of SpongeBob's favorite days of the year because he gets to play harmless pranks all day long (even if most people don't get them). Squidward decides to teach SpongeBob what a REAL April Fools joke is and gets him, but also finds out mean is not necessarily funny. Only time will reveal who has the last laugh. Neptune's Spatula: On a visit to the Fry Cook Hall of Fame, SpongeBob inadvertently pulls a mythical spatula from a vat of ancient grease, thus giving him claim to the title of 'Worlds Greatest Fry Cook'. When the act summons the great King of the Sea, Neptune, however, SpongeBob must face the disbelieving god in the Ultimate Cook-Off Challenge. Written by NAS

Episode 19: Neptune's Spatula/Fools in April
27 January 2011 | by TVGuy3See all my reviews

I thought one of these episodes was good, and one was excellent.

Fools in April: Squidward is tired of SpongeBob overdoing it on April Fools day and decides to get revenge. This episode will seem pretty generic up until the halfway point, which is where it gets better. Some of Squidward's attempts to apologize are some of the best moments in Season 1, but it's not enough to make up for the lousy first half. 8/10 Neptune's Spatula: This is the one that really stood out to me. SpongeBob pulls King Neptune's spatula from the ancient grease and gets an opportunity to move to Atlantis and become Neptune's fry cook-that is, if SpongeBob can beat him in a Krabby Patty cook-off. This episode had me in the stitches all the way to the end, especially some of Patrick's lines, like when Neptune zaps him. "Is it hot in here, or what?" *Patrick collapses* Gosh, I love that. Also, Mr. Krabs reassuring SpongeBob he can win and then betting thousands upon thousands of dollars on Neptune is a great gag. I just love this episode. 10/10 Overall: 9/10
