3 Great Spongebob Titles for the New Year

Spongebob Squarepants has held a very special place in my family's heart since the beginning. In fact, when I first met my husband over 20 years ago, he was wearing a Spongebob t-shirt! As a result, we have embraced most things Spongebob, enjoying the original series season after season and even bringing some of the new "spin-off" titles into our home these past few years.

This past month had some exciting releases for the franchise, that I hope you'll consider adding to your entertainment library. We got the opportunity to review these from Paramount Studios and Nickelodeon. 

First, we have Kamp Koral: Spongebob's Under Years, Season One: Volume Two. This DVD continues the adorable saga of a very young Spongebob and crew. The animation style is my kids' favorite, and their adventures really appeal to my younger kids. It contains episodes 14-26 of this first season, plus a fun extra: The Tidal Zone: A SpongeBob Universe Special, in a 2-disc set. Our favorite episodes in this collection include "Night of the Living Stench," "Camp Crossbones," and "Eye of the Hotdog." 

This is just such a sweet show with a lot of the same humor as the original Spongebob but with a little less complex humor. It won't go over the heads of younger kids as much, which makes it a great show for the whole family. 

Next we reviewed The Patrick Star Show (Season 1, Volume 3), perhaps the zaniest of the franchise. It's full of over-the-top humor, quick dialogue, and physical humor. With an entirely different premise, you'll recognize many classic Spongebob characters in a new light. The star of the show is, after all, Patrick and the misadventures he and his TV family get into. I found this series to be the loudest and most slapstick of all of them, but my 10-year-old REALLY loves it. A few episodes a day is a great treat for him when he needs a laugh. 

The 2nd half of the first season contains 13 episodes, including my favorite, "FitzPatrick." Even my husband enjoyed this one. 

Finally, we have the complete thirteenth season of my family's favorite show: Spongebob Squarepants!  This series has not lost any of its original pizazz, and we really enjoyed digging into this classic show with our kids. This is a HUGE collection, with all 26 episodes from the season on 3 discs. It kept us busy for much of the holiday break, and my kids are already rewatching their favorite episodes.

All three DVDs are available now, wherever your favorite Nickelodeon videos are sold.

P.S. People often ask why you need DVDs when there's so much to stream online. These DVDs are an example of why my family still loves DVDs. Whether you're traveling in a car without WiFi, need to save the data for gaming, or just want to watch shows not readily available on most streaming platforms, these DVDs are great to have on hand. They make viewing accessible at any time, and the shows come without commercials or the risk of harmful online content that I don't want my kids to watch when I'm not around.

For safe entertainment, we are glad to have our Spongebob DVDs. You can add these to your collection now, too!
