Characters

Synopsis

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.

Cover

In the original cover, SpongeBob's, Patrick's, Squidward's, Sandy'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.
