Created by former marine biologist Stephen Hillenburg, Nickelodeon's hugely popular cartoon series SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS chronicles the wacky adventures of an overly enthusiastic sea sponge and his oceanic pals in the underwater town of Bikini Bottom. Living in a pineapple home with his meowing, catlike pet snail, Gary, the fry-cook sponge (inimitably voiced by Tom Kenny) happily flips Krabby Patties at a fast food restaurant owned by the money-grabbing Mr. Krabs (Clancy Brown)--that is, when he's not engaging in nautical nonsense with his dim-witted starfish friend, Patrick (Bill Fagerbakke); annoying his tentacled and perennially grouchy neighbour and co-worker, Squidward (Rodger Bumpass); visiting the displaced Texan squirrel, Sandy Cheeks (Carolyn Lawrence); or fending off the megalomanic plans of the evil protozoan, Plankton (Doug Lawrence). Employing a vibrantly colourful animation style that bears the distinct influence of REN & STIMPY, SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS has become a veritable pop-culture phenomenon that appeals to children and adults alike with its wholesome, yet slyly subversive, brand of goofy humour (as well as an impossibly catchy theme song).

as the other reviewer says, the very first spongebob story - entitled 'help wanted' - is not on this dvd. so to call it complete first season is something of a misonomer. That drops this one mark as it would be a five star product otherwise.

Spongebob squarepants is one of those cartoons that can be enjoyed by all ages. the story of a sponge who lives in a town under the sea, it's bright and colourful enough to keep the kids happy, and there are sophisiticated bits of wordplay and breaking of the fourth wall that will entertain adults.

There are three discs in this. the first two have sixteen spongebob stories on them and the third has eight. all run for eleven minutes save for the five minutes [approx] story 'reefblower' at the start of disc one. The discs offer language tracks in english, dutch spanish and french.

Disc three has as extras a documentary about the origin of the show. Which is a bit short, but good. And a karaoke section where you can sing along with some of the songs from various episodes, as the words appear on the screen.

The box does promise a commentary on the episode 'plankton' on disc one, but I couldn't find anything like that on the disc.

If you're epileptic or don't like flashing lights beware of the episode 'jellyfish jam' on disc one as it has lots of flashing colours and quick changes of scenery in it. pity, because it's a very good episode.

the early episodes in this season are a little rough around the edges animation wise at times, but this a great show and it's still funny even when it was starting out.

Great show. Decent collection. but where's that first episode?

Hello, my name is Matthew, I'm 18 and have ASD. But despite my age I am still a massive SpongeBob Squarepants fan!!

When my Dad bought this for me I was so excited as I remember watching SpongeBob on TV. So owning the very first season would be just as fun. The delivery time was very quick, if I recall it took just about two days to arrive and when I had it in my hands I was so happy knowing that there was so much SpongeBob fun to come...

So far I have watched the first disc of Season One, had to stop as my Dad has just got a new job after being out of work for over a year now! So what with my Dads new job we had to move and now my SpongeBob Season One is packed up in a box, but I'll just watch the first disc again once we've unpacked as it was so funny and enjoyable and is definitely worth another watch!!

One thing I did notice was that a lot of people said that Season One didn't come with the original pilot episode "Help Wanted". Well mine was the same. Help Wanted wasn't included in mine, but that didn't exactly bother me as there's so many adventurous and funny episodes included in Season One!!

I have uploaded pictures of my SpongeBob Squarepants Season One I received to give you a good idea of what you will get if you buy it. I really like mine and hopefully if you buy it as well then you will love it just as much as I do!!

The first season of SpongeBob Squarepants is fun, adventurous and funny for everyone of all ages and I would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys cartoons.

Kindest regards,

Matthew (MiffoShort)
