Characters

Synopsis

The episode begins with SpongeBob and Patrick at Sand Mountain, where they see Johnny Krill, Not Dead Ted, and Grand Maul Granny, The Drastic Radicals, doing extreme sports. A British fancy fish tells them about them, and because he spoke in lisp, they mistake it for "extreme spots." A jellyfish lands on Patrick and he gets covered in jellyfish sting spots. They stand in front of the team, wanting to join them because of spots.

Johnny corrects them stating he meant "sports," not "spots," and lets them try to be Drasticals.

He shows SpongeBob a motorbike. SpongeBob tries to climb on but the motor bike starts and it rips his arms off. His arms drive away on the motorbike whilst SpongeBob tries to catch up. SpongeBob is about to give up when the motorbike comes back at him. The motorbike stops in front of Johnny Krill.

On the hill above them, Patrick gets pushed by Granny down the hill on a clamboard. Patrick swallows the board and hits a lot of rocks. Once at the bottom, SpongeBob and Patrick walk over to Johnny Krill and his team. Johnny decides that his sports are too extreme for SpongeBob and Patrick. So SpongeBob tells Johnny they can jump rope while Patrick is playing double Dutch. Patrick sings a song then he falls out when he finds out it was exercise and SpongeBob says "extreme." Johnny Krill shows them extreme as Ted jumps fast, hits a plane, falls down and blows up burned. Johnny says that sports have to be explosive. So, SpongeBob blows a bubble and he and Patrick mimic the booms, but they are not impressed. Johnny says it has to be big and he shows it by riding his motorcycle through a huge bubble wand and ride in a bubble through town and landing on a heavy industry. SpongeBob asks if fighting is extreme and Johnny says fighting is "totally extreme."

SpongeBob boxes a pillow, but did not do so well. Unimpressed, Johnny shows them, by hitting the pillow hard and taking it to the cleaners. However, the mattress soon beats up Johnny. Johnny asks if they do any more sports and SpongeBob says Patrick is an expert at dumpster diving.

Patrick climbs on top of the dumpster and falls face flat on the garbage. Johnny says it is not extreme but when Patrick brushes his teeth with a rotten toothbrush, he admits that act may be extreme. Granny lands on the garbage at a high height, gets in a garbage truck, gets crunched up into a garbage cube, and emerges unharmed. Johnny asks if they do any other sports and SpongeBob says there is one sport if they are up to it: jellyfishing. While they are doing it, the Drasticals catch jellyfish while doing extreme.

Later, the team gets injured and covered in jellyfish stings, saying that the spots are way extreme. The fancy fish returns and says the extreme spots are the direct product of extreme sports. Everyone looks at him confused, as Patrick asks, "Who is that guy?"

Running gags

  • SpongeBob and Patrick doing regular stuff, then the Drasticals making it extreme.

Release

Reception

  • "Extreme Spots" received positive reviews from critics. Paul Mavis of DVD Talk enjoyed the episode and said "'Extreme Spots' gets big laughs from some very funny bits."
