List of episodes

"Rise and Shine" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season five. In this episode, Patrick's morning routine is revealed.



SpongeBob wakes up one morning, stops his alarm clock, and looks out the window. He asks Gary about ever wondering what Patrick does every morning. Then, Patrick is shown sleeping on a chair in his house. The alarm clock rings and he becomes startled. He hides and realizes that it was something that happened every day. Then, the alarm clock continues ringing and Patrick says that the joke is over. It continues and he gets angry and attacks the lamp and rips it in half.

He then draws SpongeBob's face on his pillow and places his underwear on it to represent his best friend, SpongeBob. He asks PillowBob about the noise and then the pillow falls on the alarm clock.

Then, it is time for breakfast. He goes to the refrigerator and many cans come out of it. Patrick thinks that he has nothing to eat, but he figures out that the food is in the can. So, he takes a plate and asks the can to give him some food. But the can doesn't respond. Patrick tries to open it and gets frustrated and he throws it and it lands on the alarm clock and the food comes out. So, Patrick grabs the food and sits down to watch television. He eats the food, but the ringing alarm clock comes out again and he realizes that he is late. So, he runs downstairs, but trips on the broken lamp and falls down the stairs. He crashes through his dresser and his shorts are put on.

Then, he falls again and he goes through the bathroom and grabs the toothbrush. Then after some shenanigans, Patrick pops out of his rock and SpongeBob asks about his morning. Patrick said he just had another normal morning.

  • This is one of the episodes that aired on the "Patrick for President" marathon, along with "Driven to Tears," "Rule of Dumb," "The Pink Purloiner," "The Gift of Gum," "Waiting," and "Sing a Song of Patrick."
  • The title card background is similar to the "Created by" credits card in the theme song.
  • This signalled the return of three-pairing episode segments, which previously hadn't been seen since the very first episode. 
  • This is the first short of Season 5. The second was "Waiting," the third was "Boat Smarts," the fourth was "Good Ol' Whatshisname," the fifth was "Money Talks," the sixth was "SpongeBob vs. The Patty Gadget," the seventh was "The Donut of Shame," the eighth was "The Krusty Plate," the ninth was "Picture Day," and the final was "Pat No Pay."
  • It is also the fourth short overall, after Help Wanted, Reef Blower and Gary Takes a Bath.
  • This is the second time that Patrick Star's House has stairs. The first time was in "The Pink Purloiner."
  • This is the second time where SpongeBob himself appears as a cameo. The first was in "Ugh." He also only has three lines in this episode.
  • This is the fourth episode that Patrick's living room is seen. The first was in "I'm with Stupid," the second was in "Rock-a-Bye Bivalve," and the third was in "Rule of Dumb."
  • The food in Patrick's can is Canned Coral, which he is seen eating. In "Pizza Delivery," coral isn't considered a food.
  • Patrick said "I got to put on my teeth and brush my pants!" which he actually got the object of each phrase backwards.
  • In this episode, Patrick said, "A clean mouth is a happy mouth." This means he likes to be clean, but in the episode "The Battle of Bikini Bottom," he does not like being clean at all.
    • This means that "The Battle of Bikini Bottom" takes place after this one.
  • This episode only uses two voice actors: Tom Kenny (SpongeBob, Television announcer, and Gary), and Bill Fagerbakke (Patrick).
    • This also happened in "The Donut of Shame," in which Kenny and Faggerbakke voiced SpongeBob and Patrick and is also an episode from Season 5.
  • This episode may imply that this is how Patrick always starts his day.
  • In the Italian dub, this episode is called "Il risveglio di Patric," which in English means "The Awakening of Patrick."
  • In the Croatian dub, this episode's name is "Dobro Jutro" translating to "Good Morning."

  • While the coral is on the clock, it should have been shaking since it is still ringing.
  • When Patrick tumbles down the stairs, you can still see his rock ceiling, even though he was still in the "basement."
  • When Patrick stumbles down the stairs, Gary can be heard, despite the fact that Gary was just seen in SpongeBob's House in his bedroom. However, a cat meowing is a common sound effect in crashes such as falling down stairs in cartoons.
