Medieval SpongeBob

I finally saw the medieval SpongeBob Squarepants episode (entitled "Dunces and Dragons"). All I can say, as an afficianado of both medievalism and SpongeBob, is that Spongebob should have been cancelled at the end of season three. It has lost most of what made it fresh and entertaining.

Basically the only "medieval" joke is ending every verb in "eth," such as in the phrase, "I bloggeth about SpongeBob and expresseth my horror at how bad the episode was." I suppose I could have put the word "joke" in scorn quotes too, since it isn't really funny. Other "jokes" are referring to the king's fool (Squidward) as the king's "doofus," and Plankton's evil laugh ending in a coughing fit.

It may be the worst of all SpongeBob episodes ever (though I still haven't seen all of the fourth season), and it is made even worse by the fact that it runs 30 minutes long rather than the usual 15 minutes. Yes, it is only 30 minutes long, even though it feels like months.

So, in conclusion, SpongeBob Squarepants medieval episode: Not funny. An insult to both SpongeBob and the Middle Ages.


  1. Then there's the pithy jab at Dungeons and Dragons in the title.

    A pox upon them.

    We stopped watching Spongebob after the movie came out. It was hideous. Right around that time the new episode they were promoting was Spongebob goes Prehistoric. We let the kids stay up an hour past their bedtime to watch it and it sucked.

    Our favorite SB episode would probably be Band Geeks. That is classic Spongebob.

    Spongebob rules and always will.

    P.S He's funny...youre just boring old man!

  5. There is nothing in this show that should make parents feel uncomfortable. In most episodes, there is some type of adult humor that adults and teens will find to be funny.Everyone should see this show. Watch it with kids, or by yourself, either way, you'll probably have a great time with this show.Catch all eps Download Spongebob Squarepants here...

  6. I'm sixteen and I still love Spongebob...that is, the older ones. You nailed the issue here. Spongebob is no longer the funny, original show is used to be. After season three and Hillenburg's resignation, the show went down a slippery slope. It's quite painful for me. Little kids will still love it, but it's lost its older audience.

    SpongeBob SquarePants is a superb show to watch online. Every one wants to have latest episodes and no one can wait for it to come on DVD as it takes time. So, decide now, what you want to download, a single episode or the complete SpongeBob SquarePants.

    The fact that the comments for this (completely correct) blog post has started to become just a cesspool for Nickelodeon's chatbots to spam with SpongeBob advertisements is really a testament to their condition: there is no "low" that they won't stoop to. This SpongeBob atrocity needs, to stop, NOW.
