Spongebob and Patrick get Squidward into their little club... which takes them all the way out into the middle of the forest.My Pretty Seahorse
SpongeBob befriends a seahorse he calls Mystery, but trouble ensues when it follows him to the Krusty Krab.
Club Spongebob contains examples of:
- Big Damn Heroes: Subverted. The park ranger is just as lost as the they are.
- Breakthe Haughty: Happens to Squidward when the toy conch shell keeps saying no.
- Companion Cube: The toy conch shell which SpongeBob and Patrick base all their decisions on. Their devotion to it borders on Cargo Cult.
- Driven to Madness: Squidward eventually succumbs to insanity at the end, obeying the toy conch shell with the others.
- Forbidden Fruit: Squidward only wants to join the club because SpongeBob said he couldn't go in (although he meant that the clubhouse was too small for the three of them).
- Going in Circles: What makes Squidward give up on finding a way out of the forest.
- Leaning on the Fourth Wall: "Why must every 11 minutes of my life be filled with MISERY? WHY??"
- No Ending: There's no resolution to the problem of getting out of the forest.
- Snarky Inanimate Object: The Conch Shell sure has it in for Squidward.
- Tree Buchet: Squidward accidentally propels the clubhouse into the woods when he tries to pull his way out, creating a buchet.
- Treehouse of Fun: The clubhouse, built on a tall seaweed stalk.
My Pretty Seahorse contains examples of:
- Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: SpongeBob, when naming Mystery, considers calling her Grace or Majesty... or Debbie.
- Ass Shove: Implied when two fish mistake Mystery for a kiddie ride and search for the coin slot.
- Brick Joke: When SpongeBob says that Patrick is building a stable for Mystery, it cuts to Patrick with a board nailed to his head. The board remains there when he appears at the end.
- Extreme Omnivore: Mystery eats everything in the Krusty Krab kitchen, including Old Man Jenkins! (He gets better)
- Onion Tears: Squidward seems to be crying for Mystery, but in reality there's a bowl of onions next to him. Later a random stranger is seen crying, but it turns out Squidward has passed the onions onto him.
- Running Gag: Someone crying during a Tear Jerker due to a bowl of onions under their face.
- Shoo the Dog: SpongeBob is so overcome with emotion when shooing out Mystery that he doesn't notice when she leaves, or when he accidentally shoos out Patrick.
- Swallowed Whole: Old Man Jenkins.
