Trivia

More DVDs available now!

  • The DVD starts with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles DVD preview and then it shows a picture advertising other SpongeBob DVDs, which are The First 100 Episodes, SpongeBob and Friends: Patrick SquarePants, and the first eight season sets.
  • "Sandy's Vacation in Ruins" is the longest short on the whole DVD. It has a running time of 5 minutes.
  • The 51 minute version of "Truth or Square" is shown instead of the extended version found on the SpongeBob's Truth or Square DVD.
  • This DVD has the highest amount of chapters on one disc with a total of 43.
  • The image of Gary on page 2 of the episode selection would later be used in advertisements for Gary-A-Thon.
  • "Truth or Square" is the only regular widescreen episode on this DVD, as well as the only part of the disc to be in true 16:9 widescreen.
    • This makes this DVD the second SpongeBob SquarePants DVD to have widescreen episodes presented in their true 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio, after It's a SpongeBob Christmas!.
  • Patrick wearing an ice-cream cone on page 2 is a reference to "Hall Monitor," where Patrick wears an ice-cream cone as his "uniform."
    • Although, "Hall Monitor" is not on this DVD.
  • Some of the shorts were added on the SpongeShorts digital DVD.
