Role in series
"Glove World R.I.P."
All of the rides at the original Glove World! park were breaking down due to age. Finally, the park was scheduled to be closed.
SpongeBob and Patrick do everything they could to prevent this, including riding all of the broken rides to see if they could fix them, and chaining themselves to Glove World!'s entrance when they discovered that most of the rides could not be fixed. The owner of Glove World! came to shut down the park, but cannot because SpongeBob and Patrick have chained themselves to the gate. SpongeBob asks him if there is any way Glove World! could stay open.
The owner says he is closing Glove World! so he can open the much larger and better Glove Universe park. SpongeBob and Patrick are very excited, and SpongeBob tells Patrick to give him the key to their chains so they can go to Glove Universe. Unfortunately, Patrick throws the keys in Glove Lake.
The original Glove World! is later off-camera officially shut down and demolished.
