"Balloons" is a SpongeBob SquarePants Truth or Square short. In this short, SpongeBob tries to blow up balloons, but finds it harder than he thought.



At the beginning of the short, SpongeBob starts blowing up balloons. He blows up so many that his lungs become exhaled on the floor. He figures he could ask his friends for help to blow up the balloons.

First, he tries asking Patrick, who is slow at blowing them. Next, he tries asking Sandy, but she cannot blow them because of her air helmet. After that, SpongeBob asks Gary if he can help blow up the balloons. However, Gary is scared of this and dashes away.

Finally, he calls Squidward on the phone. Squidward becomes angry at SpongeBob for calling him, but SpongeBob thinks he was helping him blow them by putting the balloon on the phone and having it blow by itself, as the short ends.
