List of episodes

"I Had an Accident" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season three. In this episode, SpongeBob breaks his butt while sand-sledding.

Characters

Synopsis

The Episode begins with Patrick sandboarding, and he crashes into a hill into pieces. It turns out Patrick was playing a video game, but the same thing that happened to the character soon happens to him. Sandy warns SpongeBob not to play games and board, so Spongebob begins to board anyways. While sandboarding, SpongeBob does a stunt called "The Grouchy Squidward". While doing this stunt, he almost crashes into a tree. Then, he crashes into the ground, because Sandy says it hurts a lot, and SpongeBob is taken to the hospital.

I had an accident

Purple Doctorfish says that it took 20 hours to glue it back together, and that if he has another similar injury, he may end up with an "iron butt", a huge machine on wheels connected to where the butt used to be. SpongeBob goes on "around-the-clock butt patrol", and after seeing many potentially dangerous things outside decides to stay home forever with his "potato chip", the "penny" that has never been used, and a "tissue napkin" that has been truly used. Sandy and Patrick try to persuade to get SpongeBob to come outside, which are to no avail until they attempt to stage a fake gorilla attack.

SpongeBob is unconvinced by this, until a duplicated clone of Patrick Star appears to torture the real Patrick Star and Sandy, which transforms into an actual real live-action gorilla, stuffed them into the bag, and he attacks them. SpongeBob leaves the safety of his home to save his friends, but is easily defeated and has been splited into half by a gorilla. The episode ends with a massive non-sequitur: When SpongeBob asks how a gorilla can exist underwater, the gorilla says "George, they're on to us!" and runs away on George The Zebra. Then, a family who was watching the episode get confused and turn it off.

Trivia

Timeline
  • July 13: SpongeBob hurts his butt
  • July 14: Sandy and Patrick try to give SpongeBob a cake
Timecards
none
  • An alternate name for this episode is "Safety Freak SpongeBob". Some television guides, such as Dish Network, still keep this title. It is known on Charter as "Safety Freak".
  • Old YTV airings used to list it as its original title name. But, for unknown reasons, the TV listings was changed to "Safety Freak" in 2013.
  • The gorilla is played by Frank Welker and the zebra is played by Dee Bradley Baker.
  • Sand Mountain makes its second appearance in this episode, the first being "Pre-Hibernation Week". It also appeared as a level in Battle for Bikini Bottom.
  • This is the first episode to have a "The End". Other episodes with the message include "Wishing You Well", "Banned in Bikini Bottom", and "Planet of the Jellyfish."
  • The Portable Gaming System (PGS) Patrick was holding is similar to the "Nintendo Game Boy Color".
  • SpongeBob's fear of danger outside his home is irrational enough to be considered agoraphobia.
  • SpongeBob would not need to filter feed as he presumably has food in his house he could eat. However it is possible that he is nearly out of food and will not go outside to get to the grocery store.
  • This was the last episode to premiere in 2003.
  • The title card is similar to "Opposite Day" and "Can You Spare a Dime?."
  • This is the final episode to have the music Honolulu March. It wouldn't return until the Season 7 episode, "Squidward in Clarinetland."
  • George the Zebra has spots instead of stripes.
  • The woman in the family at the end of the episode is played by Tom Kenny's wife.
  • This is the third time SpongeBob is split in half. The first two were "Texas" and "Procrastination."
  • SpongeBob's reclusive actions are similar to Howard Hughes. Although, Howard Hughes never left his house because he was afraid of germs, not injuries.
  • This episode shows a lot of live action characters including the Gorilla, George, and the people who were watching the television.
  • Before the "second Patrick" arrives, the real Patrick in a gorilla suit can be seen dancing similar to the Philippine novelty dance 'Otso-otso'

Errors

  • Near the middle of the episode, SpongeBob talks before his mouth moves.
  • SpongeBob's X-ray shows he was taped up with a lot of tape, but the doctor said he put it together with glue.
  • Just before the old person says "I say we take a bath", SpongeBob's socks are missing.
  • After SpongeBob Sang "Indoors", Patrick can be seen crying. However, he disappears as Sandy points to SpongeBob.
  • When SpongeBob uses the 7 in, 23 cm long spatula, The Krusty Krab is to the east of his house, But it is usually to the west.
  • Spongebob's butt should not have shattered upon impact as he is a sponge.
  • When Patrick and Sandy enter SpongeBob's house, Patrick's right eyebrow flickers red for a fraction of a second.
  • When SpongeBob says "No problem", Penny, Used Napkin and Chip are missing.
  • Squidward is seen calmly watering his plants during the gorilla attack. He would have ran into his house as soon as he saw the gorilla, way before the viewers would even have a chance to see him. Or at least be watching in shock. The writers must have forgotten about the gorilla when thinking of the joke, and decided it was so funny they had to put it in anyway.
  • Before the dust collecting scene his window is circle, but after it is oval-shaped.
  • The Gorilla is Slightly see-through.
  • When Patrick is about to hit the sand mountain, his sled disappears.
