By this time, you either like this guy or you don’t. There is a lot of fun goofiness here, butthere are also some ill-advised live-action additions (such as in “House Party” and “I Had anAccident”), which are just plain painful.
The 2.0 sound is crisp, clear, distortion-free and fun. The surround effect is pretty muchlimited to the music, but it’s pretty constant.
As with the other SpongeBob DVDs, the picture is …eautiful: superbly crisp and with coloursso brilliant you’re almost blinded. A model for transferring TV material.
As with all but the Nautical Nonsense release, the extras are minimal: an “Underwater Sun”video by the Bird Brains, a 2-minute interview with a background artist, the “House Party”storyboards in montage with dialogue but no music or effects, and a Nickelodeon trailer. Themenu’s main page is animated and scored. The menu generally is a so busy in its look that it isa bit hard to navigate.
Oh, come on. If you’re reading this, you’ve seen the other SpongeBobs. Are you going topass this up? I don’t think so.
