Reception

David King of BubbleBlabber.com called the special decent, saying that "It’s hard to believe a long-running franchise like this hasn’t had anything like this that isn’t a Halloween special. I give it points for creativity at least for “out-weirding” itself, and given the popularity that Spongebob has obtained for decades, I have the feeling we might get more of these in the future.”[5]
