  • Special Guest: Peter Browngardt (Uncle Grandpa creator) as the Ice Cream King.

  • Never Say "Die": The term "out of the picture" is used rather than the word "dead", but the art appraiser mimes a noose hanging when saying this.
  • Only Sane Man: SpongeBob plays this role for this episode, such as trying to keep Squidward from being killed on the deliveries Mr. Krabs sends him on and expressing concern when Mr. Krabs and Squidward destroy the Krusty Krab.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom:
    • SpongeBob getting Mr. Krabs to buy all of Squidward's paintings by saying they will be worth more in the future.
    • The art appraiser for informing Mr. Krabs that art is worth more when the artist is dead.
