DVD Review: SpongeBob SquarePants: The Complete Tenth Season

October 16, 2019

By John Corrado

The Nickelodeon animated series SpongeBob SquarePants has been on the air since 1999, and it’s still going strong after twenty years. While the show is currently in its twelfth season on TV, the complete tenth season of the series has just been released on DVD this week.

Spread over two discs, SpongeBob SquarePants: The Complete Tenth Season features eleven full-length episodes, (22 if you count the segments individually), all of which originally aired between 2016 and 2017.

The first disc has the seven episodes Whirly Brains/Mermaid Pants; Unreal Estate/Code Yellow; Mimic Madness/House Worming; Snooze You Lose/Krusty Katering; SpongeBob’s Place/Plankton Gets the Boot; Life Insurance/Burst Your Bubble; and Plankton Retires/Trident Trouble. On the second disc are the four episodes The Incredible Shrinking Sponge/Sportz?; The Getaway/Lost and Found; Patrick’s Coupon/Out of the Picture; and Feral Friends/Don’t Wake Patrick.

I grew up watching the first few seasons of SpongeBob SquarePants on TV, so it’s fun to catch up with these characters again now. While you can’t beat those vintage episodes, there are still a lot of wacky and amusing moments in the show’s tenth season, including brief guest appearances from Ed Asner (Whirly Brains) and J.K. Simmons (Snooze You Lose), and it’s easy to binge-watch your way through these discs if you are so inclined.

It’s also somewhat bittersweet now to see creator Stephen Hillenburg’s name in the credits, who is listed as executive producer on all of the episodes, as he sadly passed away last year after being diagnosed with ALS. But I’m happy to say that his legacy still lives on, and this is a solid set for fans of the show, offering a selection of entertaining and easily digestible episodes for both old and new SpongeBob fanatics.

The DVD set includes no additional bonus features.

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Complete Tenth Season is a Paramount Home Media Distribution release. It’s 250 minutes and rated G.

Street Date: October 15th, 2019
