SpongeBob SquarePants: The First 100 Episodes (DVD Review)19 Sep, 2009 By: John Latchem
$99.99 14-DVD set
The phenomenon that is SpongeBob SquarePants is now 10 years old, celebrated with this new compilation of the first 100 episodes of the show. That equals the first five seasons, but these aren’t just the discs from the season sets thrown into a new box. The discs have been re-engineered with the “First 100 Episodes” theme, and a new bonus disc has been thrown in for good measure.
The centerpiece of the extras is the TV special “Square Roots: The Story of SpongeBob SquarePants,” which covers everything you wanted to know about SpongeBob but where afraid to ask. There’s also a fun “Life Lessons From Bikini Bottom” featurette and an interesting “Seven Seas” version of the episode “Help Wanted” with audio spliced from various international dubs.
