Here we are again with a semi-themed collection of SpongeBob cartoons (seven in all, for a brief 77 minute running time). Food is the recurring theme here, with the title episode seeing SpongeBob creating a Krabby Patty so perfect that he falls in love with it, and keeps it with him until Patty can be charitably described as “festering.” Collections like this don’t exactly have the same value as a complete season, but that doesn’t change the fact that the nautical nonsense at work here is, as ever, pretty damn funny.
The usual business here. The audio is 2.0, and the surround elements are pretty much exclusively limited the cheery music. I can’t help but regret that more isn’t done with the lunatic sound effects, but oh well. Clarity is perfect throughout, and complaining about a perfectly good 2.0 is really a bit churlish.
And here, too, the picture quality is on par with the other SpongeBob releases. The colours are extremely bright, and the image is perfectly sharp. All of this is to the good. The only flaw, and this is a recurring one with these releases, is some aliasing that is noticeable on the character models, especially that of our hero.
Not too much: the animatic for the title episode and a Karaoke music video. Plus your usual ads for other Nickelodeon releases.
This is a completely typical SpongeBob release. But that is in no way a bad thing. Not when the thing is this funny.
