YMMV / Sponge Bob Square Pants S 8 E 12 Barnacle Face Pet Sitter Pat

Go To

Barnacle Face

  • Funny Moments: SpongeBob's attempts at removing the barnacle off of Pearl's face.
  • Never Live It Down: Much like "Keep Bikini Bottom Beautiful", this episode has become notorious for what it was paired with.

Pet Sitter Pat

  • Fanon Discontinuity: Wishing that this episode never existed is a reasonable reaction.
  • Reviews Are the Gospel: This episode wasn't talked about at all until The Mysterious Mr. Enter reviewed it. Since then it's one of the most hated episodes of the show, easily in the top 10.

  • Sequelitis: At least in a spiritual sense, as it is essentially a remake of "A Pal For Gary" with Patrick occupying SpongeBob's role as Gary's oblivious abuser. The similarity was not lost on fans and a repeat of that was something that nobody had asked for.
  • The Woobie: Gary. As if being attacked by a giant eel in "A Pal For Gary" wasn't bad enough, he now has to put up with Patrick in this episode.

How well does it match the trope?
