Reception

  • Jason Bovberg of DVDTalk.com, said in a review that "whether you should purchase this set depends on what level of fan you are and how many of the 'theme' sets you've already purchased." He praised the extras and the video quality, although he noticed the lack of new home video releases of episodes in the set (at the time of its release, only 15 out of the 40 episodes in the set had never been on home video in North America). He also criticized the lack of the pilot episode "Help Wanted," describing the set as "annoying" for missing it.[1]
  • Bill Treadway of the DVD Verdict, praised the video and audio quality on the set, comparing it to other "television shows get lackluster treatment on DVD,: saying that "there is much to enjoy, even in the lackluster episodes." However, he also slightly criticized the absence of the pilot.[2]

Trivia

Errors

  • On the back of disc 1, "Sandy's Rocket" is mistakenly listed as "Sandys Rocket," missing the apostrophe.
  • In the Disc 2 episode description of "I Was a Teenage Gary," there is a part that reads, "Gary medicine," instead of "Gary's medicine."
  • In the Disc 3 episode description of "Neptune's Spatula," there is a part that reads "Worlds Greatest Fry Cook," instead of "World's Greatest Fry Cook," also missing an apostrophe.

An image from "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III" instead of "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy II."

  • In the episode selection on disc 3, the image for "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy II" is not from that episode. The image is actually from "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy III," which is not on this DVD.
    • This error also happens on the Lost at Sea DVD.

Bill Faberbakke

  • In the closing credits for "Reef Blower" and "Tea at the Treedome," Bill Fagerbakke's name is misspelled as "Bill Faberbakke."
  • Despite of the DVD's artwork and menu featuring the characters including Sandy with her tail sticking out of her suit, Sandy's tail wasn't out of her suit in all episodes of this season until Wormy in Season 2.
