Spongebob Squarepants, along with Fairly Odd Parents, is the best kid's animated series on TV today. It has the shameless silliness for the kids and the witty cracks and well-evolved characters that adults can appreciate. I am 30 and have watched these episodes numerous times and will continue to. They are just funny. I can relate to Squidward Tentacles' surly "whatever" attitude towards life. The money-grubbing Mr. Krabs is hilarious as well as Spongebob's dim-witted friend, Patrick. Plankton has to be funniest villain on television today! Anyway, this series was spot on from the beginning to which the following first season episodes attest:

Disc 1:

Reef Blower: Contrary to previous reviews, "Help Wanted" (where Spongebob is hired at the Krusty Krab) is not included on this disc. The first episode shown here is the one where Spongebob (SB) and Patrick interrupt Squidward's quiet time by demonstrating the fun one can have with reef blowers.

Tea at the Teadome: Sandy Cheeks the Squirrel is introduced and Patrick gives SB misguided advice on how to handle himself in Sandy's air-filled home.

Bubblestand: Squidward ends up paying for bubble blowing lessons from SB.

Ripped Pants: A beach mishap gives SB his 15 minutes of fame which he soon abuses.

Jellyfishing: SB and Patrick want to give Squidward (in a full body cast after a bicycle accident) his "best day ever" by taking him jellyfishing.

Plankton: [w/ commentary] Introduces Mr. Krab's arch-enemy who tries to take-over SB's brain.

Naughty Nautical Neighbors: Squidward thinks its hilarious to break up SB and Patrick's friendship until they look to him to fill their friendship void.

A Kid's Review on September 2, 2003
Format: DVD
When I first saw that the first season of Spongebob was coming, I was confused. Why on Earth would they put allmost all of these episodes on DVD again? I mean, couldn't they just put the rest of the episodes on more single DVD's? So then I went onto Spongebob's website, and figured out how many more episodes that weren't already available on the other titles, would be on the first season. There are approximantly 16 episodes that you can't get on the recent DVD's.

Unlike some people, I am a really big DVD collector, and I sometimes buy DVD's that I already have on VHS. And that includes buying the first season of Spongebob when I already have all the other Spongebob titles on DVD.
Here the never before on DVD episodes that will be on the 1st Season :
Help Wanted
Reef Blowers
Naughty Nautical Neighbors
Home Sweet Pineapple
Sandy's Rocket
Nature Pants
Culture Shock
MuscleBob Buffpants
Employee of the Month
Karatee Choppers
Rock Bottom
Walking Small
Fools in April
Neptune's Spatula.
Like I said, even if you have all the Spongebob DVD titles, GO BUY THIS DVD, trust me, you won't be sorry !

Of course I'm going to buy it! This has got to be the first great cartoon of the 21st century, and I'm one of the adult "Spongebob underground." That is, the adults out there who watch this show but are afraid to tell any of their adult friends for fear of being laughed at.
Now, it's a bit annoying that after collecting several Spongebob DVD's, they come out with this collection so soon. I'm getting to where I'll never buy individual DVDs of a TV series again, because this happens over and over. If a show is phenominally popular, ignore everything untill the season-at-a-time box sets come out. I've got the message.
Now, how about the folks at Nick releasing some of the earlier classics. How about a Ren and Stimpy box set, or a Rocko's Modern Life box set? What fun those would be!

SPONGEBOB IS ONE OF THE BEST CARTOONS EVER CREATED!!! There I said it & I mean it. A lot of people (not Spongebob fans of course) think this cartoon is totally senseless. But the ones I've actually been able to sit down & force to watch a few episodes have happily converted. Okay the premise is ridiculous, but that's the fun of it & the characters are great. Don't mind that a lot of the things that happen don't make sense, it's a CARTOON. Even the characters make fun of themselves, like how can they hear without ears & how can they make fire if they're under water? It's also kind of educational. WHAT!! Did I say "EDUCATIONAL"? YES!! Just watch the episodes & see what our favorite sponge & friends learn about lying, stealing, cheating, greed & being mean to friends & you'll see what I mean. Of course the lessons aren't thrown in your face, but they're in there & my son understands. It makes me a proud Spongebob fan (& father) when my (now six-year old) son looks at me & says, "Mr. Krabs only loves money & that's bad." Or "Spongebob wouldn't have gone through all that if he didn't lie." I know there are still skeptics out there (I was one) but a cartoon like this doesn't just become what it is without there being "something" special about it. One of my favorite things on DVD's are the "behind the scenes" & "making of" features & this DVD has it's own list of features that gives people like me more insight & understanding of what goes into making Spongebob special. This is a great buy! So stop reading & buy it! BUY IT NOW! GO AHEAD!!
