53 corrected entries in season 3

The Algae's Always Greener / Sponge Guard On Duty - S3-E7

Corrected entry: When Plankton realizes he's in the Krusty Krab, the green fish walks past the window twice.

Brad

Correction: He only appears twice because the angle changes. When "Mr. Plankton" is looking out the window he's looking over to his far right when the green fish passes. Then the angle changes so we see straight out the window, which is to the left of the previous angle, so we see the green fish walking still.

Born Again Krabs (aka A Penny Saved) / Safety Freak (aka I Had An Accident) - S3-E17

Corrected entry: In "Born Again Krabs," The Flying Dutchman gives Mr. Krabs six coins and takes Spongebob away. When Mr. Krabs throws the money, there are now seven coins.

Correction: Watch the scene again, there is always 6 coins.

No Weenies Allowed / Squilliam Returns - S3-E6

Corrected entry: In "Squilliam Returns", when Spongebob erases everything from his mind, (except fine dining and breathing) his brain is shown shredding papers. When his brain shreds memory, one paper shredded is entitled "Spice Garden Tips". Later when Squilliam arrives, Spongebob serves him the "Krabby Newburg" which he says, "contains herbs from our garden". But if Spongebob forgot his "Spice Garden Tips", he would not be able to prepare that dish.

xx:xx:xx

JT

Correction: While I have to applaud the attention to detail, preparing food with seasonings from an existing garden would not require tips on how to grow one.

Grumpy Scot

The Snowball Effect / One Krabs Trash - S3-E3

Corrected entry: How does Squidward get to the top of his snow fort if there's no stairs on the inside of it, not fall inside the snow fort without holding on? How does it snow underwater, and where did that big tree come from?

chocolate

Correction: IT'S A CARTOON! Some suspension of disbelief is expected. Sea creatures don't talk or wear clothes either.

Jason Hoffman

No Weenies Allowed / Squilliam Returns - S3-E6

Corrected entry: How did Spongebob and Sandy get all of their Karate Gear in either a small bag or out of nowhere?

chocolate

Correction: IT'S A CARTOON! Some suspension of disbelief is expected. It's common in cartoon for characters to pull a ridiculous number of items out of a small bag, or even a pocket.

Jason Hoffman

SpongeBob's House Party (aka Party Pooper Pants) - S3-E10

Corrected entry: Patchy's hook hand switches hands throughout the episode.

logan crews

Correction: One of the running gags on the show is that both Patchy's eye patch and hook switch from right to left continuously.

wizard_of_gore

No Weenies Allowed / Squilliam Returns - S3-E6

Corrected entry: When Patrick punches Spongebob, he appears to have a black eye. It dissapears immediately after he smiles.

Correction: All of the characters in the show get hurt at one time or another, and then the injuries immediately disappear. It's one of the main, ongoing sight gags of the entire show, and it's done entirely on purpose.

wizard_of_gore

No Weenies Allowed / Squilliam Returns - S3-E6

Corrected entry: In "Squilliam Returns," Spongebob is confused that a waiter goes to tables and takes orders. However, in some episodes earlier in the show, Spongebob waits tables.

Correction: Spongebob has also been shown to be none too bright...plus, the show by its nature has little or no continuity between episodes.

wizard_of_gore

New Student Starfish / Clams - S3-E14

Corrected entry: In the episode New student starfish., In the scene where they are looking at the chart SpongeBob claims to have 74 stars but the chart only shows 30 or so.

Correction: It's entirely possible that all the stars don't fit in Spongebob's column and he just takes a mental note of it.

SpongeBob BC - S3-E18

Corrected entry: When Patchy is pointing to the cave drawings at the beginning, his hook hand is gone.

Brad

Correction: While that may be true, that's one of the running gags throughout Patchy's skits. His peg leg, hook, and patch all change places on his body from left side to right side. In other episodes, the hook or patch or leg do disappear altogether. That's the gag.

Chocolate With Nuts / Mermaid Man And Barnacle Boy V - S3-E11

Corrected entry: In "Chocolate With Nuts" when Spongebob and Patrick are selling candy bars, Patrick at first has 1 tooth, then 20, then 1 tooth again, repeatedly.

logan crews

Correction: Throughout the series, Patrick's teeth repeatedly change for jokes. It's just part of the show.

Brad

SpongeBob BC - S3-E18

Corrected entry: When Patchy is being "eaten" by the t-rex, you can tell he is lying down flat on his back on a green screen floor, and the t-rex is just a puppet held next to him.

logan crews

Correction: Yes, we can all tell that it's a puppet, which is why it was deliberately drawn that way for the humor. So where's the mistake?

Club SpongeBob / My Pretty Seahorse - S3-E12

Corrected entry: In "Club Spongebob," Patrick builds some coffins in the forest but then spongebob says something and Patrick says, "It's not?" Then after it cuts to Spongebob, the coffins are gone.

logan crews

Correction: The coffins were there simply for a joke, and that's why they deliberately disappear.

Brad

Nasty Patty / The Idiot Box - S3-E4

Corrected entry: In "Nasty Patty", in one shot there is no toilet in the Krusty Krab kitchen, but in the next shot there is.

logan crews

Correction: The toilet was there simply for a joke.

Brad

Chocolate With Nuts / Mermaid Man And Barnacle Boy V - S3-E11

Corrected entry: In "Mermaid Man And Barnicle Boy V", the Krusty Krab has a dark side, but it is not there when there is a HUMUNGUS line at the Krusty Krab at the beginning of that episode.

logan crews

Correction: It was there for that joke and that joke only. This occurs all the time in Spongebob.

Brad

The Graveyard Shift / Krusty Love - S3-E13

Corrected entry: In "Graveyard Shift," when Squidward says to that guy they think is the hash-slinging slasher, "If that was you on the phone and you on the bus, then who was flickering the lights?" look at the "order here" sign. It says "order hear" instead of "order here."

logan crews

Correction: A misspelling on a sign at any given restaurant is a pretty common occurrence, so an eatery in Bikini Bottom is not exempt.

Super Grover

As Seen on TV / Can You Spare a Dime? - S3-E5

Corrected entry: In the Krusty Krab commercial in "As Seen On T.V", the secret formula for the Krabby Patty forgets cheese from the recipe.

logan crews

Correction: Mr. Krabs says, "Then we add undersea veggies and cheese". He doesn't forget it.

Brad

Welcome to the Chum Bucket / Frankendoodle - S3-E2

Corrected entry: In "Frankendoodle" the artist at sea's pencil sinks in the ocean, but pencils are too light to sink, they would float.

logan crews

Correction: This is done for dramatic effect. It lands with such force and frightens Patrick and Spongebob. The fact the pencil lands more like a missile fits in with the environment of the show, i.e. That Bikini Bottom has gravity despite being underwater. The fact they are able to launch the pencil back up with the same force shows its not a one off as well.

Lummie

Nasty Patty / The Idiot Box - S3-E4

Corrected entry: In "Nasty Patty", a fly went down the health inspector's throat, but they are underwater, so how can the fly live underwater?

logan crews

Correction: Now really, this is a show that relies on "factual errors", and are presented in the most absurd fashion. It is all done for HUMOR and can not be seriously considered as a factual mistake.

Super Grover

Wet Painters / Krusty Krab Training Video - S3-E9

Corrected entry: The training video says that the Krusty Krab closes at 6:00. But in every other episode, it closes at 8:00.

Brad

Correction: The training video could have been outdated and cheapskate Krabs wouldn't have wanted to make a new one.

Born Again Krabs (aka A Penny Saved) / Safety Freak (aka I Had An Accident) - S3-E17

Corrected entry: In "Safety Freak," Spongebob breaks his butt. How is this possible, because in "The Bully," Spongebob is unable to be hurt by any force.

Correction: Spongebob's makeup is constantly changed throughout the series for comedic effect. In one episode he melts into a puddle despite being a sponge. In the same episode his nose deflates like a balloon when pierced by a needle.

Lummie

Krab Borg / Rock-a-Bye Bivalve - S3-E8

Corrected entry: In "Rock-A-Bye Bivalve" when Patrick says "Just call me daddy!" he raises his arms and he has a lot of armpit hair, but when he is watching T.V and raising his arms there is no armpit hair.

logan crews

Correction: Patrick's excess armpit hair was done for the purpose of that joke. Many times in Spongebob, they use something for a joke and never use it again.

Brad

Nasty Patty / The Idiot Box - S3-E4

Corrected entry: In Idiot Box, when Spongebob takes out the TV at the start, he's between his and Squidward's houses. He throws it across the road, and it lands in the trash can, but it's right in front of his house.

tylerasktaylorsteckleralexdenny

Correction: He throws it to his left side, which would land it in front of the house.

Brad

New Student Starfish / Clams - S3-E14

Corrected entry: In New Student Starfish, when Spongebob writes Patrick's name on the good noodle board, an empty space for Patrick's name suddenly appears.

Correction: The empty space was always there.

Brad

The Great Snail Race / Mid-Life Crustacean - S3-E15

Corrected entry: How can there only be the three race contestants (Squidward, Spongebob, and Patrick)? Squidward surely wouldn't have spent his hard earned money just to con the other two into joining a race, so there should be more snails in the race. If Spongebob and Patrick had decided they didn't care about the race, would Squidward's snail have won by default, since there were no other racers?

Danelle Williams

Correction: Rule of thumb on plot holes is they must contradict something. Granted it's strange there are only two other contestants but there is no mistake in it either.

Lummie

As Seen on TV / Can You Spare a Dime? - S3-E5

Corrected entry: When Spongebob is making the krabby patties, the croud shout, "Onions! Cheese!" but Spongebob never put any cheese in the krabby patties.

Correction: The crowd is just shouting out what they want on their burgers. Just a character mistake on Spongebob perhaps.

Lummie

Nasty Patty / The Idiot Box - S3-E4

Corrected entry: When the health inspector hits his head on the table his hat falls off. Later when he's in the hole his hat is back on.

Correction: Do we really know how much time passed between these shots? Spongebob or Mr. Krabs could easily have put the hat back on the health inspector. Maybe they did it so there wouldn't be any evidence.

Danelle Williams

SpongeBob Meets the Strangler / Pranks a Lot - S3-E20

Corrected entry: If the invisible paint washes off with water, wouldn't SpongeBob/Patrick fade into view immediately (because they are underwater)?

Correction: Technically yes. But if this is a problem then we'd also have to count the whole show as a problem. Like people who live underwater drowning, blowing bubbles, and drinking beverages. Because this is a cartoon this is not a valid mistake as it's artistic license.

New Student Starfish / Clams - S3-E14

Corrected entry: In New Student Starfish, Patrick doesn't have the first clue about driving. Yet in the earlier episode "Boating School", Patrick gave Spongebob instructions how to drive via walkie-talkie-and he wasn't reading a manual to him.

Correction: Patrick's memory is just like a baby's. It's likely that he totally forgot about how to drive.

The Sponge Who Could Fly (aka The Lost Episode) - S3-E16

Corrected entry: At the end, Patchy the Pirate pushes the wrong button on the remote, and the tape starts shooting out at him. One of the next shots shows him squirming around in the tape, and then he rolls over onto his stomach. He kicks his legs in the air, and both of his feet are visible, but earlier in the episode, when he was watching the lost episode, one of his legs ended at the knee.

Correction: Remember this is Spongebob - Patchy's eye patch changes eyes various times, and remember at the beginning of the episode, he puts a fake leg on the leg that ends at the knee. Who's to say he didn't put it on whilst he was watching the episode?

The Graveyard Shift / Krusty Love - S3-E13

Corrected entry: When SpongeBob goes out to throw the trash, the sign of Krusty Krab isn't there.

Correction: First, this is not a plot hole. It should be changed to continuity, but my point is that you cannot see the sign because it is not visible from the camera angle. Imagine the Krusty Krab's shape as a rectangle. You can't see the sign because at a 90 degree angle from the door side to the short side of the rectangle, the sign is posted on the short side.

The Algae's Always Greener / Sponge Guard On Duty - S3-E7

Corrected entry: When Spongebob absorbs the water to save Patrick, and then throws it, you see that the lake has a large bottom. So, Patrick really could drown there. But later Larry arrives, and as he is walking in the lake, you see that the bottom of the lake is almost nothing.

Correction: This was a joke that the animators made. They were supposed to be drowning in what seemed like deep water, until Larry just casually walked in and got them.

Welcome to the Chum Bucket / Frankendoodle - S3-E2

Corrected entry: At the end, the narrator says that the artist in the boat is sleeping. But look at his eyes: they're opened.

Correction: Some people do sleep with their eyes open. I myself have witnessed my dad sleep with his eyes open.

Nasty Patty / The Idiot Box - S3-E4

Corrected entry: When SpongeBob gets the new T.V, it is huge. Later when it is in Squidward's house, it is not so huge.

Correction: The difference is more perception than actually being smaller. There isn't much difference from being outside to being in Squidwards house.

Lummie

The Graveyard Shift / Krusty Love - S3-E13

Corrected entry: When Spongebob and Squidward find out that the ghost is a dork, there is still one question: Why WAS the bus there in the middle of the night.

Correction: That's the joke, the bus never should have been there. They comment on all the creepy things happen almost as soon as they talk about it. Like when the lights go on and off when Squidward mentions it.

Lummie

The Algae's Always Greener / Sponge Guard On Duty - S3-E7

Corrected entry: When Spongebob is scared to save Patrick, he absorbs water. Later when he drowning, why didn't he absorb the water? He is a sponge.

Correction: Spongebob was pretty freaked out when he was drowning so its likely he didn't think about this option. The other problem with trying to absorb water was how tough it was for Spongebob to do it the first time. He couldn't move, he had to dump the water right back into the lake, there was so much water and by accident he sucked Patrick up too. Even if he wanted to try again it may not have been a viable option.

Lummie

Wet Painters / Krusty Krab Training Video - S3-E9

Corrected entry: On "Wet Painters," SpongeBob and Patrick are trying to solve how to clean paint from Mr. Krabs' dollar. SpongeBob is trying to clean the paint off with a big baseball bat. Patrick is holding the dollar and SpongeBob is hitting him. Patrick is in many bandages. In the next shot, they go to a computer and Patrick's bandages have disappeared.

Correction: The bandages are a joke to show how much Patrick is going through just to get the paint off the dollar.

Nasty Patty / The Idiot Box - S3-E4

Corrected entry: When SpongeBob is going to the fridge at the outside of the Krusty Krab, when it's raining, to hide the dead man there, you can see that the sign of the Krusty Krab is at the left of the Krusty Krab, instead of being at the right of it, like it's always. This could count both as Continuity error and as Plot Hole error.

Correction: As long as I've seen the show the sign has always been on the LEFT, it's in the correct position.

Nasty Patty / The Idiot Box - S3-E4

Corrected entry: In "Nasty Patty", they enter the fridge, and there's nothing in it. However, we see that in "SB-129", Squidward stays in the fridge for 2000 years, until the future, and then he returns to the past. But wouldn't SpongeBob and Krabs, when they see the fridge, see that Squidward is there, frozen?

Correction: They are two different episodes so certain objects will change and differ. For example in "Wormy" Spongebob and Patrick went through a secret entrance in the Krusty Krab that was never shown or used again.

Lummie

No Weenies Allowed / Squilliam Returns - S3-E6

Corrected entry: In "Squilliam Returns", when Squidward gives up on everyone and runs out of the Krusty Krab, he runs into Squilliam. If you look at the shown window of the KK, it is the ordinary window with the ropes on it. But when they walk in, wallpaper covers all of the windows. I know that Spongebob converted the restaurant from crappy to fancy very quick, but I think we would've seen him placing wallpaper on the windows.

Correction: Not showing the wallpaper keeps Squidward's reaction as shocked as Squilliam which is the joke in the scene. Added to this if the wallpaper was shown coming down Squilliam might have suspected that Squidward was trying to fool him.

Lummie

Chocolate With Nuts / Mermaid Man And Barnacle Boy V - S3-E11

Corrected entry: In all the episodes Mermaid Man and the Barnacle Boy have 4 fingers in each hand. When Barnacle Boy in this episode, starts making his demands, suddenly he has 5 fingers in his hand.

Correction: Its a joke on all the demands he has when it seems likely he just had one or two demands. Despite usually only having four fingers he is still counting when he should have stopped at four.

Lummie

Chocolate With Nuts / Mermaid Man And Barnacle Boy V - S3-E11

Corrected entry: In this episode, Branacle Boy enters the EVIL society. In that society, Dirty Bubble and Man Ray appear. This is impossible. Dirty Bubble died in Mermaid Man And Barnacle Boy II, and Man Ray stopped being a villain in Mermaid Man And Barnacle Boy III. So if all of this happened, no EVIL society would exist.

Correction: There's nothing to say Dirty Bubble didn't return, Man Ray could have returned to his evil ways. There was nothing preventing them from returning.

Lummie

The Great Snail Race / Mid-Life Crustacean - S3-E15

Corrected entry: SpongeBob says, "Squidward's last name is Tentaces?", as if he doesn't know that. But in "Artist Unknown", an episode that took place before this one, Squidward says his last name after he says that SpongeBob has no talent.

Correction: The point of the mispronunciation is the joke in the episode. Everyone seems to get his last name so horribly wrong. If you want to be technical, Spongebob doesn't really refer to Squidward by his last name and we can assume that maybe seeing it written on the certificate he presumed it was something different from Tentacles. A bit like how some names can sound and be pronounced much differently from how they are written.

Lummie

Chocolate With Nuts / Mermaid Man And Barnacle Boy V - S3-E11

Corrected entry: In Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V, Barnacle Boy says he is 68 years old. However, in the previous "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy" episode, when Spongebob finds Mermaid Man's Belt, Spongebob mentions for 60 years it's been used to help protect. Although Barnacle Boy is Mermaid Man's sidekick (and a sidekick is usually younger), 8 years of age seems a little young to be a sidekick.

Correction: Actually while it may seem inconcievable, in the episode "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy II" Mermaid Man talks about an young apprentice he once had who was as eager as Spongebob. Mermaid Man then holds up an photo of Barnacle Boy as a toddler in nappies. It could be then believed Barnacle Boy started training to be Mermaid Man's sidekick as soon as he was an appropriate age (in this case 8 years old).

Lummie

Wet Painters / Krusty Krab Training Video - S3-E9

Corrected entry: When it shows the Rusty Krab (the Krusty Krab when it was still a retirement home) it has the Krabby Patty poster on its window.

Correction: This seems to be more of a deliberate mistake. In the shot the narrator says "and with some minor changes", and all that is different is the senior citizens have moved despite expecting to see major changes being as it was a retirement home. The joke is he didnt really do anything to change it just got rid of the old people and in the next shot put up a red K in front of the Rusty.

Lummie

The Snowball Effect / One Krabs Trash - S3-E3

Corrected entry: Squidward's fireplace was behind Squidward early in the episode, but later on when Squidward throws a snowball and misses Spongebob and Patrick, it's in front of him.

Correction: Thats the joke, in the episode no matter where he throws the snowball he keeps missing Spongebob and Patrick and it keeps going onto his fireplace.

Lummie

The Snowball Effect / One Krabs Trash - S3-E3

Corrected entry: A clarinet of that length couldn't be perfectly hidden inside a snowball that's about one quarter the size.

Correction: It's a joke to show how seriously Squidward is taking the snowball fight. (Patrick even says so).

New Student Starfish / Clams - S3-E14

Corrected entry: In "Clams," after they've been searching for the Clam for I think three days, Squidward has grown a beard and head of hair. But in other episodes, he's upset because he's bald. If he can grow hair, then why did he rip it all out?

Correction: This was used to show how irrational Mr. Krabs was being about how long they would have to stay out there and find the clam.

SpongeBob's House Party (aka Party Pooper Pants) - S3-E10

Corrected entry: After Spongebob is arrested, he comes back to his house in the morning. When he gets to his bedroom and sees Gary, he says 'Goodnight Gary', and turns off the light.

Correction: This is because SpongeBob had been up all night and was going to bed. When people go to bed even during the day they will say goodnight out of habit of saying the phrase when they go to sleep.

Born Again Krabs (aka A Penny Saved) / Safety Freak (aka I Had An Accident) - S3-E17

Corrected entry: In "I Had An Accident", there's one scene where Sandy sticks her head into Spongebob's porthole to yell at him. The porthole is NOT open, therefore Sandy would've hit her head in the porthole window.

Correction: Maybe he doesn't have glass at his house.

The Great Snail Race / Mid-Life Crustacean - S3-E15

Corrected entry: How can Gary, a simple snail, be able to turn on a TV, and THAT fast?

Correction: Gary is no simple snail though. He can sing (I was a teenage Gary), he can recite poetry (at that talent show in the Krusty Krab), so if Gary is so simple then he wouldn't be able to turn on the TV in the first place.

Wet Painters / Krusty Krab Training Video - S3-E9

Corrected entry: In "Wet Painters", we have NO evidence of Patrick drawing a crayon face and $ signs onto the painted dollar, yet Mr. Krabs notices the dollar and there they are.

Correction: This was probably either meant to be funny, or Patrick did it when Spongebob had his back turned when wondering what to do with the dollar before Mr. Krabs saw it.

Wet Painters / Krusty Krab Training Video - S3-E9

Corrected entry: Why did they take such a LONG time to finally bring the Krabby Patty out?

Correction: That's the joke.

Mistakes

In "I Heart Dancing", the lady at the Krusty Krab tells Spongebob the dancing audition is the next day. Later, Spongebob is practicing at Squidward's house for a whole night, and the next morning Squidward says they have one more day to practice, even though the audition should have been that day.

Trivia

Whenever there is an accident involving the general population you can ALWAYS hear amongst the groans a man saying, "My leg..."Some examples are: 1. In the episode "Hall Monitor" when SpongeBob directs all the cars in the wrong direction, you can see a bunch of wrecked cars, and then you hear the recording "My leg..." 2. And in "Boating School" when SpongeBob crashes into the lighthouse you can hear a man moan "My leg..." 3. On "The Chaperone" episode, when all the kids at the prom get hurt during "The Sponge" song you can hear "My leg..." 4. This is the one in "Culture Shock" where Squidward puts on a talent show.When Pearl puts on her performance, and jumps up and down, people start crashing through the air.At this part the "My leg..." sound is heard 5. On "Sleepy Time, when SpongeBob is in Plankton's dream, Plankton says "Peek-a-boo I see you, Zap!", and you hear "My leg..." 6. In the episode "Aarrgh!", a fish walks in the Krusty Krab and says "Whip up those patties Crabs." and something else, and Mr.Krabs throws him out and he says "My leg..." 7. In "Walking Small", when SpongeBob gets out his towel, he fans all the sound out of it.All the fish leave instantly.You can hear the recording "My leg..." 8. On "Karate Choppers", when SpongeBob knocks a guy out thinking he's Sandy he says "My leg..." 9. And in "Something Smells" when SpongeBob makes the marching band fall over and fly everywhere you can, once again hear "My leg..." Also, in the movie, a joke was made on this, where instead he says "My eyes!"
