The legendary story starts with a harsh and powerful windstorm in Bikini Bottom. Nat and Shubie were leaving the diner, and their bag of leftovers flew into SpongeBob's bedroom window and hit him in the face, causing him to look out the window. As he does so, the wind gets into his pores and makes music, attracting the jellyfish.
The next morning, SpongeBob tries to go to work, but the jellyfish swarm him, wanting to play. Eventually, Mr. Krabs is forced to bring him in with a fishing rod, and as SpongeBob goes to make Krabby Patties, the window abruptly opens. As the breeze blows through SpongeBob's pores and produces the melodious tune once again, the jellyfish chase him.
Still being pursued by the swarm of jellyfish, SpongeBob runs to hide in Patrick's house; however, a jellyfish enters and stings Patrick, making him throw SpongeBob out. Finally, the wind stops, but the jellyfish then begin to sting SpongeBob, forcing him to take refuge in a cave.With that, he starts building a stone replica of himself to alleviate his days of solitude. Later, the storm is still there, and SpongeBob had grown a beard and finished the replica. He gives his inanimate companion tea with sugar cubes and talks to it about how the jellyfish keep bothering him due to the music produced when the wind blows through his holes. Then, SpongeBob has an idea to carve a stone replica of himself.
SpongeBob carries the stone replica of himself outside of the cave, but the jellyfish end up hating the music produced by the replica. SpongeBob comes to the realization that bigger stones can produce bigger and better music.
After a while, SpongeBob finishes the giant stone replicas and pushes them into the middle of Jellyfish Fields, forming a circle. Said circle full of SpongeBob statues is now known as "SpongeHenge." The breeze blowing through the pores of the giant statues creates beautiful and harmonious music, which the jellyfish love. SpongeBob is overjoyed that he will never worry about the jellyfish ever again, and he is finally able to go back to work. Unfortunately, he discovers that the Krusty Krab has been engulfed in the sand because of the windstorm and everyone is gone. SpongeBob now realizes how much time the jellyfish made him waste and cries out in despair. It is unknown what happens to SpongeBob after this, but SpongeHenge continues to live on.
Three thousand years later, a race of strange cyborgs (presumably of alien origin) have appeared in Jellyfish Fields. "SpongeHenge" has become a major tourist attraction with many tourists taking pictures of the sight. The cyborgs wonder who made the statues and why they were made. The only clue was that the melodious sound the wind makes as it enters the giant pores of the statues entertains and attracts jellyfish.

- This episode is available on the SpongeBob's WhoBob WhatPants?, Season 5 Volume 2, Complete Fifth Season, and First 100 Episodes DVDs.
- The title card background for this episode is similar to that of "The Two Faces of Squidward," the sister episode.
- The background on the title card looks like the exterior of Squidward's house, but gray instead of blue.
- In the very beginning of the episode, two fish argue about who is the ruler of the sea: Neptune or Poseidon. In actuality they are both right. The Romans called him Neptune and the Greeks called him Poseidon.
- Shubie does not believe in King Neptune in this episode, but she later does in "The Clash of Triton."
- At the beginning of the episode, SpongeBob's house is shown to have three windows.
- The man in the moon was played by Paul Tibbitt while the man in the sun was played by Dee Bradley Baker.
- When SpongeBob tries to dial the phone he says, "My fingers are too big for the buttons." He says exactly the same thing in "Suds" when he tries to do exactly the same thing.
- The "Later" time card has the same background as the "Three Days Later" time card in "I Was a Teenage Gary", but slightly zoomed out.
- SpongeBob shows his intellect in math and strength when he calculates the dimensions the statues should be and when he pushes the statues, respectively.
- The Krusty Krab was buried when the wind tore off the whole building (except for the floorboards).
- One of the time cards shown is this episode reads "3000 years later." It is the second-longest time period on a time card to date, losing only to "One Eternity Later" from "Squid on Strike."
- According to this episode and "Jellyfish Jam," jellyfish like good music and become aggravated by bad music (like Squidward's clarinet playing).
- However, in "Squid Noir" the jellyfish like Squidward's clarinet playing, so they steal his clarinet and try and replicate the way he plays it.
- At first, the large statues each make their own musical note, but later, every statue makes a mix of notes. The best explanation is that the wind changes, making a new passageway for different notes.
- This is the second episode where SpongeBob has been in the jellyfish cave. The first is "Nature Pants."
- In the German dub, this episode is called "Die SteinBobs," which translates to "The StoneBobs."
- In the Indonesian version of this episode, the epilogue scene featuring Aliens is cut for unknown reasons.
- When Patrick is watching the news, the anchorwoman says, "And that's the way it is in your world today." This is an obvious reference to Walter Cronkite's signature sign-off.
- Kelp cream is a parody of whipped cream.
- The scene where SpongeBob is in a cave, hiding from the jellyfish and making a stone companion, is a reference to the 2000 movie Cast Away.
- When the Krusty Krab is buried in the sand, it is a reference to the ending of the 1968 movie Planet of the Apes when Taylor, having survived and escaped imprisonment, wanders along a coastline in search of shelter. He finds a partially destroyed Statue of Liberty buried in the sand and finally realizes what planet he is on. In addition, SpongeBob's hair and beard are strikingly similar to Charlton Heston's in the same movie.
- This may be also a reference to the original ending to the 1992 movie Army of Darkness where at the end, the main character sleeps too long inside a cave and wakes up to find the world destroyed.
- The name "SpongeHenge" and the numerous stone statues of SpongeBob are parodies of Stonehenge, an attraction in England.
- The cyborg-aliens do not know why the stone statues of SpongeBob were made and they only know that it attracts jellyfish, similar to Stonehenge because people do not why they were made and the only clue that the sun sets over the Stonehenge.
- When the couple's leftovers splatter on SpongeBob's face, he licks it off, but then he is holding the food in one of his hands.
- When SpongeBob is outside of his house, making music and laughs, one of his blue eyes turns white for a split-second.
- If SpongeBob pushed that many phone buttons simultaneously, he should press something else to start over.
- When SpongeBob dials on the phone, his hands are big but when he hangs up, his hands go back to normal size.
- SpongeBob tells one of the statues that he can have all the sugar, but only he gives him some of it.
- When SpongeBob returns to Bikini Bottom, he finds the Krusty Krab buried in sand; although, it was blown away by the wind previously.
