Characters

Synopsis

SpongeBob comes out of his home and gives Valentines to all his friends, as it is Valentine's Day. Later, he goes to Sandy, who is working with SpongeBob on a plan to bring Patrick's gift to him, which is a chocolate hot-air balloon. At Patrick's house, SpongeBob tells him he has a present prepared for him but that it is not ready. Patrick is desperate to know what the present is, but SpongeBob does not tell him.

He brings him to the carnival, which he thinks is the present, only to realize that it is not. He tries to find out what his present is, while Sandy is flying the chocolate balloon to the carnival. Unfortunately, a group of chocolate-eating scallops attack the balloon. She tells SpongeBob that she is going to be a little late and tells him to bring Patrick up to the Ferris wheel and that she will meet him there.

SpongeBob tells Patrick his present is on the Ferris wheel. Meanwhile, the scallops cause the balloon to lose air, so she tells SpongeBob to switch to plan B. Therefore, Patrick's present is diminished to a "friendly handshake", and he is grumpy for the rest of the day at the carnival. Later, the two are sitting on a bench, when everybody thanks SpongeBob for giving them presents. Eventually, Patrick gets angry and jealous because he didn't get any presents and starts to go berserk by wreaking havoc across the carnival.

He ends up cornering several citizens, including SpongeBob, at a dead-end at the Goo Lagoon dock. Just as he is about to harm everybody, Sandy comes down with the repaired chocolate balloon, having gotten the scallops to help her bring it to him. The citizens tell Patrick to turn around, but he does not budge. When Sandy greets him, he turns around and notices the chocolate balloon. He gets excited and jumps on the balloon, only to pop it when he eats it as it was a bubble. As the episode ends, Patrick gently tells SpongeBob that he didn't have to get him anything.

Release

Reception

"The first great Patrick episode! I love how Patrick instantly goes from having his feelings hurt to an Incredible Hulk-like rage. Bill Fagerbakke really came into his own in this one."

General

  • Here is a list of people SpongeBob gives Valentine's Day gifts to:
    • Squidward gets a colored heart made out of paper.

    • Plankton is given a tiny heart.
    • Sandy eats the chocolate heart bubble SpongeBob blows for her.
    • Patrick is delivered the chocolate hot air balloon that SpongeBob and Sandy had planned to fly into the carnival.
  • There is an online game based on this episode called Love Hurts!
  • This is the first episode in the series where Plankton appears without Mr. Krabs.

    • 3. Sandy flies in with the heart-shaped chocolate balloon towards Patrick.
    • 4. Patrick is thrilled. Mission accomplished.

Patrick and Doodle Patrick doing the same poses.jpg

  • The pose that Patrick make when he says "Ferris wheel" was later seen in the video game Drawn to Life: SpongeBob SquarePants Edition when Doodle Patrick grows when being erase few times.
  • This marks the last time the track, Stack of Leis, plays in the first season.
    • This also marks the only time to date that this track plays without its highly recognized ending tagged on.
  • This marks the last time the track, Lovely Scenery C, plays in the first season.
    • This also marks the only time the beginning of this track plays, and not just the dramatic stab at the end.
  • In the Dutch dub, when the guy asks Patrick for the time, Patrick actually tells him the time (3:15 PM) instead of saying, "Patrick needs love, too!"
  • Patrick's quotes "Heart on stick must die!" and "I defy you, heart-man!" have become popular internet memes.
  • This is the first episode where a microorganism excluding Plankton is shown in the SpongeBob SquarePants series.
  • During I ♥ SpongeBob week, it was paired up with "The Camping Episode."[2][3]
  • Prior to the beginning of 2020, Nickelodeon USA originally broadcast this episode and "The Paper" on Valentine's Day only, making both episodes extremely rare to find on TV. The network has started to broadcast both episodes outside of the holiday, though on occasion.

Errors

  • When Sandy opens her helmet to receive the chocolate bubble, no water comes inside her helmet, even though they are underwater.
  • When Sandy is on the chocolate balloon, her suit appears smaller.
  • At the beginning, the sky is pink, but after the scene with Plankton, the sky is blue as normal.
  • In the original scenes with the "Valentine's Day Carnival" sign, Mount Climb-up-and-Fall-off is not seen, but when Patrick mentions it, it can be seen.
  • When Sandy fights the chocolate-eating scallops, the balloon's basket seems to be missing, only showing the string attached to it. The basket reappears when Sandy arrives at the carnival.
  • The rides at the carnival change place throughout the episode. For example, the Heart-A-Whirl is to the right of the Ferris wheel at the beginning of the episode, but at the end when everyone is on the pier, the rides are still in the position it was at the beginning of the episode, even though the pier is on the other side.
  • When one of the scallops pop a hole in the balloon for the first time, air is coming out, but when Patrick pops it again, chocolate sauce explodes out of it.
  • Incidental 27 bottom fin dissapears as Patrick throws him across the carnival
