- Currently retired critic David Ryan of the DVD Verdict was favorable on the episodes featured. "Die-hard SpongeBob fanatics won't hesitate in picking up this disc, but casual viewers may contemplate waiting for the inevitable complete set of season three's episodes." He also praised the extras, and called the storyboard "enjoyable."
- Francis Rizzo III of DVD Talk was favorable on the DVD release. "Considering that all these episodes will eventually (and probably shortly) be available in a Season Three box set, is this really worth the cost? It depends on how you collect DVDs." He also regarded the storyboards featured, as "an extra of value to any would-be animator."
- Zach B. of DVDLaunch praised the video quality but noted that "the filter Paramount puts its animated titles through result in a good deal of noise and a bit of shimmering, and yet again the "SpongeBob" episodes suffer from that problem a bit."
