Only 8 episodes and all are from Season 3.
on September 26, 2004
I started buying these "compilation" dvds of Spongebob back when the first one came out (Nautical Nonsense/Sponge Buddies)because at the time it was the only option for having him on DVD. Of course a few discs later they decide to release the First Season set. I can imagine some of you reading this have already collected all of these "compilation" discs of which this one I believe is the 11th but I have to tell you this one may be the most unecessary volume yet because not only does it contain just 8 episodes (like the previous SpongeGuard on Duty collection), but they're all from Season 3. Meaning this disc will be obsolete with the release of Season 3 on DVD. Then again, by the time Season 3 is released all of these compilations will be obsolete. Bottom line: If you're interested in the season sets, there is no reason to buy these compilations. With 11 of them so far, just about all of seasons 1-3 are out now (there's about 15 or so episodes that haven't been released yet). However if you're not buying the seasons sets for whatever reason, it's not like you're going to be disappointed with the entertainment on this one. If you only have a few of these "compilation" DVDs or none I highly recommend not buying anymore of them and instead investing in the Season sets if you like the show because they're complete. Also I'm pretty sure the cost will be more effective when bought in sets. You also cut down on the number of discs, they're organized better, and they're chronilogical. The choice is pretty simple.
