SpongeBob's Big Birthday Blowout is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from the twelfth season. In this episode, SpongeBob and Patrick tour the surface world, while the rest of Bikini Bottom prepares a surprise party for SpongeBob.

Why It's The Best SpongeBob Birthday Special Ever

  1. It's a great way to celebrate SpongeBob's 20th anniversary, coming jam-packed with several references and returning characters. It's also a huge improvement over "Truth or Square", the show's 10th anniversary special, and "Atlantis SquarePantis".
  2. This episode has an enjoyable and tremendous plot and concept to see what the show would if the main characters had real life counterparts.
  3. Despite being done before in episodes like "Pressure" or even The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, the way they present SpongeBob exploring the world above the water is really unique and clever.
  4. The animation and voice acting are great as usual.
  5. As previously mentioned, a lot of characters that appeared either a couple of times or only once return in this episode.
  6. Hilarious jokes and moments.
  7. David Hasselhoff and Mindy, who both appeared in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, also return.
  8. Patchy the Pirate finally gets to meet SpongeBob 19 years after his first appearance.
  9. The voice actors of the main characters (SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, Sandy, Mr. Krabs, and Plankton) appeared as human versions of their characters in the Trusty Slab.
  10. The ending is pretty touching.
  11. Speaking of the ending, it showed one last message before the end of the episode saying "Thank You Steve Hillenburg.", honoring the late creator and his legacy.
  12. The title card and its music are good, especially since the opening credits are themed around the episode in this one which is really creative.
  13. The soundtrack is still good as usual.

Bad Qualities

  1. The scene at the bean-themed party is pretty pointless, only serving to cram in more guest stars.
  2. Some of the scenes feel like filler, like the passengers waiting to use the shower at the beach. Why didn’t they just go back to the ocean?
  3. A few toilet or gross-out jokes here or there, but not that much.
  4. Nickelodeon made the stupid decision to make a 21-22 minute cut version of the episode, which is clearly one of the worst things they did to a legendary episode. Thankfully, they saw this wasn't a good idea and changed it back to the original 44-minute cut.
    • SpongeBob's Pineapple was destroyed by the time SpongeBob and Patrick got home, this was not present in the cut version.


  • The credits are in this episode themed around the episode are Encino, Los Angeles.
  • Following "Reef Blower", (though it doesn't have any opening credits), "SB-129", this is also the third episode not have the credits take place underwater. In this episode's case, it takes place in Encino.
  • Guest stars like the late Gilbert Gottfried, Jack Griffo, JoJo Siwa, Tex Hammond (we are not kidding, the kid who was the third voice actor of Lincoln Loud from The Loud House from the episodes "Game Boys" to "Room and Hoard" and is the son of Grey DeLisle-Griffin, appeared the first time in a SpongeBob SquarePants episode), Jace Norman, Kel Mitchell, Victoria Beckham, Tom Wilson, and many others appear in this SpongeBob SquarePants episode.
