What is more important than spending time with Dad at the Annual Dad and Kids Games Day? SpongeBob does not 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 original cover, SpongeBob SquarePants's, Patrick's, Squidward's, Sandy Cheeks's, and Plankton's dads are with their sons/daughters. In the 2014 reprint, it only shows SpongeBob's and Plankton's dads with their sons, with the illustration slightly updated.
This section is too short. You can help the Encyclopedia SpongeBobia by expanding it.
- 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.
- Also, there is proof that Squidward never hugged his father.
- 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 does not appear in this book.
- On the cover, Herb's mustache is light brown instead of black.
- 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.
