"SpongeBob & You Save the Big Blue" is a SpongeBob SquarePants The Big Green Help short. In this short, Patrick is wasting water.



Johnny Elaine announces the short on TV. The scene then zooms to SpongeBob watering the flowers. He notices that Patrick left his garden hose on, so he walks over to Patrick's rock, turns the water off and knocks on the rock. Patrick comes out and says hello to SpongeBob, who asks Patrick about the hose. He finds out that Patrick left the hose running on purpose.

SpongeBob tells him in a wise tone that having a hose running can waste thousands of gallons of water per month.

The next scene shows the water coming out of Patrick's house. SpongeBob screams, jumps into Patrick's house, sucks the water up, and then says that they will put the captured water to use.

The scene cuts to Patrick watering Mrs. Puff's flowers by using SpongeBob as a watering can. Mrs. Puff thanks SpongeBob and Patrick. SpongeBob finally tells Patrick that saving water goes a long way.

  • While this short relates to the situation of water conservation, it makes no sense in the context of the scene itself. SpongeBob is telling Patrick that he is wasting water even though they live in water.
  • The short was made for Nickelodeon's educational project The Big Green Help.
  • The website ( mentioned in the outro does not exist anymore because the educational project ended in 2009. The link is now a redirect to the main Nickelodeon website.
  • This is the first short to use the track "You're Nice."
  • This is the only short where Mrs. Puff's house appears.
  • When SpongeBob says, "thousands of gallons of water per month," he talks in his manly voice similar to when he says, "Hall monitor!" in the episode of the same name.
