Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Spongebob Squarepants!
Absorbent and yellow and porous is he!
If nautical nonsense be something you wish,
Then drop on the deck and flub like a fish!

Dunces and Dragons
After a freak jousting accident at a Medieval Times restaurant, SpongeBob and Patrick are transported to a medieval version of Bikini Bottom. The two are mistaken for great knights, and soon they are entrusted with the quest of saving King Krabs' daughter, Princess Pearl, from the clutches of the evil wizard Lord Plankton. To keep them company, the King sends along Squidward, the court jester (who was recently thrown in the dungeon for not being funny). The first obstacle they encounter is the dreaded Black Knight, an ornery squirrel who fights under the spell of Lord Plankton. But Sir SpongeBob bests the Black Knight in a brilliant display of Karate, and even breaks Plankton's hold on her. The Black Knight pledges herself to the heroes' cause, and the group of four marches on to Lord Plankton's lair where they encounter the giant fire-breathing jelly fish. Fortunately Sir SpongeBob has just the thing that will tame the dangerous beast, a krabby patty that he was saving in his pocket for lunch. The knights finally get through Plankton's defenses, save Princess Pearl, and restore peace to the kingdom. When SpongeBob and Patrick awake the next morning, they are back in their present day home. Everything is as it should be, except for that giant fire breathing jelly fish that's hanging around them.

The "big jellyfish that is hanging over them" dosen't materalize in the end. Although the journey does happen as we see Squllie is being squished under Patrick after the two return back.
I think everyone here knew that there was no way this special would live up to the hype that Nickelodeon was giving it, but I thought it was alright. I mean in a "I'm not laughing all the time" sort of a way but a "it's decently entertaining and I'm not that bored" sort of way. Best parts were Spongebob's and Patrick's follies on the wild seahorses, King Krabs being annoyed by Squille, Pat and SB's preformence, our heroes kicking themselves out, Spongeboble's battle with Sandy the Black Knight, SB using the net to capture the dragon jellyfish (for a brief second) and the ending. But I wouldn't really recommend this episode to anyone whose expecting a 22 hilarious action packed journey. I just recommend it to someone who wants to see a Spongebob special better then "Ugh" or the Lost Episode.
Well That's 1000 Posts Down And...
... Guess However many left I have until I get too annoying to be kept around and got banned or something.
I just finished watching this on tape, and I loved it. Well-written and excellent animation (for TV), good use of medieval theme, especially the "thee" and "thou"-laden dialogue. Spongey was at his sweet clueless best, Patrick was a riot and had all the best lines, Squidward rocked as the king's Fool, and Sandy was a most excellent Dark Knight. Very very enjoyable, best SB yet IMO. I look forward to the next SB "special", but hopefully it won't be mired within that idiotic Slimetime program. Ecch. I hate that show.
What the heck was the deal with only airing half of "The Sponge Who Could Fly" during the marathon before the new episode?
I remember asking my father "why'd they do that?"I think they just may have ran out of time,but choosing "The Sponge Who Could Fly" and knowing they wouldn't have time for it was a pretty cruddy decision.
Anyways on to the episoide.I really liked this episode,I thought the characters were well placed in the medevil times,I especially liked Mr. Krabs as the king.There was pretty good laughs in this ep also.I think this is one of my favorite Spongebob speacials
The episode was worth watching. All the major characters in persent day Bikini Bottom fit well into the medieval setting with Spongebob and Patrick going back into time getting hurt in an accident at a Medieval Times place of sorts. Once again like many episodes this season, Plankton was the evil antagonist. Still the episode wasn't over the top like many of the other probably because of the few antics Spongebob did since it was mostly an advanture. I give the episode a six out of ten.
