Synopsis[]

The Slumber Party 018

The slumber party rules.

In the beginning of the episode, Pearl is getting ready for her slumber party, but Mr. Krabs' meddling in the party preparations is getting out of control. Eventually, Pearl kicks him out of the house, so Mr. Krabs decides to stay at SpongeBob's house. There, SpongeBob puts on a movie that shows girls having a slumber party and inviting their gangster boyfriends, who begin vandalizing the house. Mr. Krabs is horrified by this, and as a result, he destroys SpongeBob's television with a bat. He then explains to SpongeBob about his concern that this will happen to his house when he demonstrated it around SpongeBob's house and sends SpongeBob to spy on Pearl and her friends (despite telling her earlier no boys are allowed at the party) who had an idea with some disguise. Meanwhile, a teenage female sponge named Girly Teengirl from Farawayville who looks like SpongeBob arrives at Mr. Krabs and Pearl's house, asking to get in for the party. However, Pearl thinks she is SpongeBob, and she and her friends attack the girl, who runs home crying. At the time, Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob arrives and pretend to be pizza deliverers while SpongeBob calls Girly Teengirl ugly.

Unfortunately, SpongeBob is caught during the scuffle after his mustache flew away and is accidentally left behind as Mr. Krabs flees where gets captured in process. As a result, SpongeBob had been turned into a pizza by the girls and sent back to Mr. Krabs, telling him that he failed the plan while Mr. Krabs eats some slice of it.

SpongeBob later sneaks back in as a piano repairman, but Pearl and her friends already know his tricks and drop a piano on him. SpongeBob leaves and tries to tell Mr. Krabs to not spy on her again since they seem trustworthy, but Mr. Krabs demands that if he does not go to Pearl's party, then he is fired. Upset, SpongeBob goes back to Mr. Krabs' house and begs Pearl to stay at her party. Pearl is convinced, but he falls into Krabs' root beer cellar while trying to prove in ten seconds that he is fun enough for the party.

SpongeBob absorbs all of Mr. Krabs' root beer to prove that he can be fun, while in hindsight ruining Mr. Krabs' house and putting Pearl and her friends in peril. Mr. Krabs arrives at his destroyed house, and he blames Pearl for its destruction and trusting her. Pearl is enraged at Mr. Krabs for blaming her and sending SpongeBob to spy on her and her friends (who are traumatized by this incident) and claims that Mr. Krabs is the only one at fault for ruining the party and its going to cost him some money.

As punishment for ruining her slumber party, Pearl makes her father give up all his savings and uses it to host a private and really expensive beach party at Goo Lagoon, where Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob are the only ones not allowed entry. The episode ends with SpongeBob offering a cup of root beer to Mr. Krabs to cheer him up, which does not help at all.

The Slumber Party 191

The blue Goo Lagoon sign in this episode.

  • The Goo Lagoon sign is blue in this episode instead of orange. It could have been a different sign.
  • In the shot of the beach party, many incidentals who normally appear light-green are now lavender, light-orange, aqua-blue, orange, thin-gray, light tan-brown, light pink, light-blue, gray, aquamarine, light-purple, light-blue, light-red, green, brown, light-brown, peach-colored, mustard-yellow, and gold.
  • Two Flats the Flounders (miscolored as Incidental 68) appear at the very end of the episode at the concert. This marks his first appearance on the series in 7 years since the season 3 episode "The Bully."
  • Incidentals 98 and 99's color palettes are used in this episode. If this counted as an appearance, it would mark their first one since the season 2 episode "Patty Hype."
  • This episode was later adpated for a comic in 2014's Issue #9 of SpongeBob and his Friends in Russia.[citation needed]
  • This is the first episode to feature a physical appearance of Pearl since "Best Frenemies." She was previously only heard in "Le Big Switch."

  • This is the second episode to show someone allergic to newsprint. The first was "Can You Spare a Dime?" in Squidward's case.
    • Unlike in "Can You Spare a Dime?" where Squidward lies being allergic to newsprint so he won't have to read the job ads, the girl in this episode is actually allergic to newsprint.

  • On the November 6, 2009 airing, this episode was paired up with "Shuffleboarding."[1]

Dub facts[]

  • In the Russian dub of this episode, Gary is called Harry.
  • In the Indonesian version, the scene with Girly Teengirl and SpongeBob disguising as a pizza delivery man were cut as SpongeBob immediately disguises himself as piano repairman just after Mr. Krabs orders SpongeBob to sneak into his house.[citation needed]
  • In the Serbian dub, because SpongeBob, Mr. Krabs and all female characters share the same voice actress (Vladislava Đorđević), there is only one voice in the entire episode.

Cultural references[]

  • The rule of "No eating after midnight" is likely a reference to the 1984 movie, Gremlins. It is one of the rules one must follow, or else their Mogwai will turn into a gremlin.
  • Mr. Krabs says, "You should have been here in thirty minutes or less," which is a reference to Domino's Pizza's and other pizza chains' policy of making the pizza free if it takes more than thirty minutes to deliver.
  • The slumber party scene is an imitation of the slumber party scene from the Broadway musical and 1978 film, Grease. However, it lacks the smoking, drinking, and ear piercing, as that would be too inappropriate for a children's show.
  • Zombie Shock Syndrome is a parody of toxic shock syndrome, a potentially fatal bacterial infection.

Errors[]

  • At the beginning, when Pearl says, "Dad!," the animation from when she says, "If you trusted me, you would leave for the night" is briefly reused.
  • When Pearl looks at her watch, it switches to her other arm.
The Slumber Party 192

Fish with no eyes.

  • In the shot of the beach party, a gray incidental with a yellow shirt is missing their eyes.
The Slumber Party 039

The chimney is missing every time the outside of SpongeBob's house is shown in this episode.
  • Anytime the exterior of SpongeBob's house is shown in this episode, its chimney is missing.
  • In the Kurdish dub, most of Pearl's lines are left undubbed.
Slumber Party credits instead of The Slumber Party

"Slumber Party" instead of "The Slumber Party."

  • The closing credits incorrectly list this episode's title as "Slumber Party," removing the word "The" from the title.
