You should know the drill by now. More lunatic stories, with a cavalcade of gags that haveyou exclaiming at the whole thing is stupid even as you are convulsed with laughter. The KrustyKrab, Mr. Krabs and food in general play a big role in a number of the episodes here, and muchfun is had with Mr. Krabs’ avarice (“Arrgh!”, where he becomes obsessed with finding a piratetreasure, is a standout). All in all, 95 minutes of goofy fun.
Par for the …ourse as far as SpongeBob releases are concerned. The audio is in 2.0, and onlythe music has any kind of surround presence. There is no distortion, however, and the clarity isbeyond reproach.
As with one of the other recent releases in this series, the picture sometimes leaves a bit tobe desired. Though the colours are as bright and cheerful as one could hope, this is someartifacting going on, not to mention grain, in some of the episodes.
Minimal. There’s a comic book reproduced (“Super Suspicion”), which counts as“interactive” because you have to use your remote control to move the pages forward. And thereare complete storyboards for two of the episodes (“Fear of a Krabby Patty” and “Mermaidmanand Barnacleboy V”). There are also some previews. The menu is basic.
Fun stuff, even though the picture isn’t perfect and the extras are a bit slight.
