Pop-up trivia facts


Bryan Pope of the DVD Verdict, praised the video and audio quality on the set, as well as the episodes themselves, calling the season "the best one of the Nickelodeon mainstay." However, he questioned the inclusion of the pilot episode of the show in this set "now instead of in its natural spot with the first season."[1]


  • "Party Pooper Pants," "Ugh" and "The Sponge Who Could Fly" are all counted as double-length episodes.
  • The reason that the episode "Help Wanted" appears on the Season 3 DVD box set despite it being a Season 1 episode is because during the production of the Season 1 DVD box set, they had copyright issues over the song "Livin' in the Sunlight, Lovin' in the Moonlight," which is featured in the episode, so they excluded it from the Season 1 DVD and promised to include it in a future DVD release.
  • This is the first time the disc cases are thin on a season DVD set.
  • This is the first SpongeBob season DVD box-set to show more than one character on the front cover.
  • For some reason, on disc 3, the theme song is a separate chapter instead of it being paired with the first episode on the disc in one chapter.
  • The DVD set was re-released in 2012.
  • The episodes the disc covers are based on are:
  • The floor on the disc 1 cover is dark gray. In "Squilliam Returns" (the episode this disc cover is based on), it is dark blue.
  • This DVD set was released one year after Nicktoons The Show Must Go On! was released in the UK.
  • The UK version has no special features.
  • The box-set cover shows Squidward wearing the sombrero he wears in "The Camping Episode."
  • One of the backings has Plankton escaping out of a pryed hole, continuing on from the previous season 2 boxset where he was breaking in.
