What's more important than spending time with Dad at the Annual Dad and Kids Games Day? SpongeBob doesn't think anything else is, until he believes the grand prize is a gold-plated spatula! They do lots of activities, but Plankton and his dad win, and do an interview on how they won. They also get their names engraved on a rock.
- In the episode "Krab Borg," Squidward used past tense, as if his father is dead, but in this book, it is confirmed his father is alive and well.
- Squidward and his dad won the bubble blowing activity and lost the sandcastle building activity.
- SpongeBob and his dad won the Jellyfishing activity.
- Sandy and her dad won the racing activity.
- Plankton and his dad won the badminton activity and won the entire show.
- This is the only time where Sandy's dad, Plankton's dad, and Squidward's dad are shown. Squidward's dad has been mentioned before, however.
- SpongeBob also pretended to be Sandy's dad in "Sandy, SpongeBob, and the Worm," in an attempt to stop her from going after the worm.
- Herb and Harold are the only dads that are seen in the TV series (not including Mr. Krabs), and the only ones with a first name revealed.
- Mr. Krabs' dad is the only dad that doesn't appear in this book.
- On the cover, Herb's mustache is light brown instead of grey.
- On the cover, Harold's hat is yellow with an orange stripe instead of a white top, tan bottom, and brown stripe.
- On one page in the book, Patrick's eyelids are pink instead of purple.
