This is the second SpongeDob DVD to have a PG rating from the BBFC due to mild language. The first being "Karate Island".
This episode is the only DVD, in Region 1 (beside Target) that has only one episode.
A Blu-ray release was originally planned in addition, but it was initially cancelled in the US and only released in Canada on November 6, 2012. The Blu-ray was eventually released in the United States on October 15, 2013. In addition to the special itself and the bonus features from the DVD, it contains all of the episodes that were on the Nautical Nonsense/Sponge Buddies DVD.
