SpongeBob receives an invitation to take part in a competition on mysterious Karate Island for the chance to be crowned "King of Karate."

DRIVEN TO TEARS

As the one-millionth customer at the DMV, Patrick is awarded a brand-new boat along with his license! Will SpongeBob's jealousy get the best of him?

Mr. Krabs joins forces with Plankton to inflitrate Bikini Bottom's newest culinary sensation, the Kelpshake, and uncover its secrets.

BORN TO BE WILD

When SpongeBob hears a ferocious biker gang is coming to Bikini Bottom, he enlists Patrick's help to run the bad boys outta town.

SQUIDWOOD

Although, these later episodes aren't as consistently good as the first three seasons, there are definitely some gems here. What has become one of my favorites of all-time is "Whale of a Birthday." I must have watched this one a dozen times already and I still want to watch it again! Most episodes that feature that over-dramatic typical teen-ager Pearl are hilarious anyway, but this one cracks me up every time! That song "It's All About You" is great and Squidward's "I Need 4-Ply When I Cry" is too much! That one episode alone is worth getting this set, but there are other good ones as well.

"Chimps Ahoy": Sandy's underwater tree house has been funded by a group of educated chimps. Having yet to develop an invention to justify her funding, Sandy's afraid she'll have to leave Bikini Bottom. SB and Patrick try to save Sandy's job.

"Whale of a Birthday": It's Pearl's 16th birthday, and Mr. Krabs better not be cheap this time!

"Karate Island": SB wins a trip to a mysterious island to be crowned "king of karate," but Sandy is skeptical.

"All That Glitters": SB's beloved spatula breaks while trying to flip a monster krabby patty. While waiting for it to recover in the hospital (uh...yeah) SB sells literally the shirt off his back to buy a state-of-the-art "Le Spatula." He soon regrets betraying his trusty "Spat."

"New Leaf": Plankton decides to give up the formula-stealing business and open a knick-knack shop. Mr. Krabs can't believe his nemesis has changed.

"Once Bitten": Gary the Snail starts uncharacteristically biting everyone in Bikini Bottom. Patrick exacerbates things by spreading a rumor about Mad Snail Disease turning victims into zombies. I like the part where SB jumps on a bus to escape the zombies only to be dropped off on the other side of the street. Example of dull jokes that seem to show up more than in earlier episodes: SB squeezes through the door of the Krusty Krab and then begs Mr. Krabs to let him in.

"Bummer Vacation": Mr. Krabs has to let SB go on vacation so he hires Patrick as an unpaid intern. SB, at first, can't stay away and then he thinks it's a conspiracy. "Wigstruck": SB finds a rock star's hideous, Mozart-on-steroids, wig and thinks it makes people happy but, in fact, they are making fun of him. Silly episode, but good message I guess: SB to Sandy: "I got so much enjoyment out of the wig myself, I assumed everyone else did, too."

"Squidtastic Voyage": Sandy wants to try her "Chamber of Shrinkage" to shrink a submarine to retrieve a clarinet reed stuck in Squid's throat. Patrick and SB accidentally start it. As Sandy tells SB: "This is approximately 17 times harder to drive than a boatmobile, which you've never successfully done, heh, heh."

"That's No Lady": A misunderstanding has Patrick believing he must leave town, so SB has him wear a disguise--as Patricia. Has its amusing moments.

"Hocus Pocus": SB gets a magic kit and is afraid he's turned Squid into an ice cream cone. Does a half-hearted Wizard of Oz take-off.

"The Thing": "Can't a hard-working squid get a little TV time alone." Not with you-know-who next door. As Squid tries to get away from his annoying neighbors, he rides his bike into a cement truck and is encased in cement. SB and Patrick mistake him for an endangered species. This is a funny one. I like when Squid is thrown in the zoo truck with the angry clam.

"Driven to Tears": SB has failed his driver's test 58 times. He feels even worse when Patrick passes his first try.

"Rule of the Dumb": Patrick finds out he's descendant from kings and the royal treatment goes to his head. Fun detail: Patrick has a library book called "How to Read."

"Best Frenemies": A new kelp shake restaurant gives Plankton and Mr. Krabs a common enemy.

"Born to Be Wild": SB and Patrick prepare to defend Bikini Bottom from an soon-to-be-arriving biker gang.

"Squid Wood": After numerous playtime rejections, SB creates a puppet Squidward who is more talented and more popular than the real Squidward (well, that's not saying much).

"The Pink Purloiner": SB suspects Patrick has stolen his prized jelly fishing net.

"Best Day Ever": All of SB's plans for his great day unravel. This episode is predictable and a little much to take. Since when can Squidward book a clarinet recital, anyway.

"The Gift of Gum": This is naaaaasty! Patrick gives SB his collection of used chewing gum for Best Friend's Day and SB is not sure how to get rid of it without hurting Patrick's feelings. Totally gross, man!

The epsiodes are much more childish, not as funny as the first three seasons, and many obvious opportunities for funny jokes were bypassed. If you're on a budget deciding which volume of SB season 4 box sets to buy, go with volume 1 it's got better (and more) special features and episodes than this one

We are HUGE Spongebob fans, but have to say, this is not the best season. The writing is "off" and the subtlety is missing in a lot of these episodes. Seems like they changed Spongebob into more of a typical "cartoon" character--and his new high pitched voice with no modulation and depth of tone (as in the first two seasons) is just plain grating on the nerves.

I only bought vol. 2, since these are the least annoying episodes. The ones in vol. 1 are unbearable, so I didn't bother.

Just about everybody's commented on the unfairness of splitting the season into two boxed sets, the precommercials and the declining quality of the episodes. All of those things are true. And yet, it's still Spongebob -- in spite of the stinkers, there are classics like "Driven to Tears." If you're on a budget, though, get Volume 1.

There is so much hype going on with cartoons these days on television. Especially, with all of the most humorous and enjoyable cartoons from Nickelodeon today, it is just so much to enjoy for all ages to laugh along with. That is definitely the case with there main star Spongebob Squarepants. Since his debut 8 years ago, he has been one of the most enjoyable characters ever on television. There have been so many new episodes airing recently on the channel, it just shows how much people love the laughable antics of Bikini Bottom's sensation. Now, many great episodes are coming to DVD that haven't made it onto air before, and they deliver.

Spongebob Squarepants Season 4: Volume 2 consists of many great episodes, most of them which haven't yet aired on Nickelodeon on disc 2, from the second half of the fourth season. The shows are funny and enjoyable, and deliver fresh new laughs for die hard Spongebob fans. There are many great episodes here including That's No Lady, where Patrick disguises himself as a seductive woman, from fear of a hitman telling him to get out of town, Chimps Ahoy! in which Spongebob and Patrick try to make a incredible invention to keep Sandy at home in her treedome, but it has its backdrops, and Best Day Ever where Spongebob dreams of having a great day planned, but everything goes wrong and Spongebob has to fix it for his friends. There are also many episodes here that haven't yet debuted on the Nickelodeon network, which are making there debut on this DVD set, which also adds to even more of the joy to many faces including Squidwood, which Spongebob makes a dummy that looks like Squidwood, and people love and prefer the dummy over the real deal.

All in all, Spongebob Squarepants: Season 4 Volume 2 is a great buy for die hard Spongebob fans of all ages. I loved watching most of these shows when they premired on Nickelodeon, and I think these new episodes deliver just as well. It still goes to show that a cartoon character like Spongebob still is bringing laughter to all above the sea.

Spongebob Squarepants is the ONLY animated series that we can watch together as a family without feeling tortured. We've purchased every season so far and we haven't yet been disappointed.
