  • Currently retired critic Roy Hrab of the DVD Verdict, highly criticized the DVD for its episodes, saying that this offering "does nothing to change my opinion," while also saying at the time that the show "has lost its edge."[1]
  • Paul Mavis of DVD Talk also criticized the episodes on the DVD, saying "I can't recommend SpongeBob SquarePants - Spongicus because it's just not consistently funny enough to warrant a buy. Only half of the eight toons here really work (with only two of those up to the normally high SpongeBob standards), with the title toon, Spongicus, a particularly limp, uneventful disappointment." He also described the extras as "lame."[2]
