"House Sittin' for Sandy" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from Season 8. In this episode, SpongeBob agrees to be Sandy's house sitter, but things go wrong when Patrick arrives.



The episode begins with SpongeBob going to work, only to realize it is Sunday. When he goes back to bed, Sandy calls him to house-sit her house, and he comes right away. Sandy tells him about all the things he has to do while she is gone, and then leaves for the bus going her Inventor's Convention.

SpongeBob starts doing everything Sandy asked him to do. At some point, he sees that a worm is about to hatch, but it turns out to just be Patrick. After he reminds SpongeBob to wear his water helmet, SpongeBob asks him to exit the treedome. Patrick at first is excited and wants to go somewhere fun, but SpongeBob has to stay in the treedome to house-sit. Patrick convinces SpongeBob that he should stay and tells him he should just sit down and do nothing while he house-sits.

After a while, SpongeBob gets annoyed with Patrick and ends up dropping a flask which rolls into the robot warehouse. This causes the robots to awaken and cause havoc and destruction on the treedome. Right after, Sandy appears and fixes the treedome using a reverse ray blaster. The three cheer, but SpongeBob accidentally drops a flask again and causes all the havoc to start again. The episode ends with a robot destroying Sandy's ray blaster right when she's about to reverse the damages, causing her to get mad at SpongeBob and Patrick.

  • Sandy's rubble reverse ray blaster makes the same sound as the Spot-Master 6000 in "The Krusty Plate."
  • Originally, Patrick wasn't going to appear, but halfway through production, the animators realized they never gave SpongeBob a helmet. Rather than going back into the episode to fix it, they added Patrick to the episode to give SpongeBob a helmet 
  • In the German dub, this episode is called "Der Hüter der Baumkuppel," which translates to "The Guardian of the Treedome."
    • Apart from that this episode has two title cards, in which the fonts are different from these two.
