List of home videos


  • Much like the Absorbing Favorites VHS, "Jellyfish Hunter" is the last episode on the VHS.
  • The cover is based on the episode of the same name.
  • This VHS was released two years after the premiere of Chocolate with Nuts and Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy V and one year after Hands Off! was released.
  • The "Nick" splat on the cover was redesigned.
  • The previews on this VHS include the teaser trailer for The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, a promo for the home video release of the All Grown Up episode, Lucky 13, a promo for VHS tapes and DVD's of SpongeBob SquarePants, a VHS and DVD promo of The Fairly OddParents, the trailer of G.I. JOE: Valor vs. Venom and a promo for EverGirl.
  • Paramount stopped making orange-colored Nickelodeon tapes in 2001 (one year before Nautical Nonsense and Sponge Buddies were released), but for some strange reason, this title has an orange-colored tape. This is the only SpongeBob VHS tape to be orange-colored, as well as the only post-2001 Nickelodeon tape to be orange-colored. Black-colored copies exist as well, and are far more common.
    • However, as of June 9, 2016, this is actually the second post-2001 Nickelodeon tape to be orange, the first being the 2003 movie Rugrats Go Wild. [1]
  • The UK VHS was released in 2006, As this is the last SpongeBob UK VHS to be released.


  • On the back, a small screenshot from the episode "Doing Time" is seen. However, that episode is not on this VHS tape, but it's on the DVD version, so that explains why there is a screenshot from said episode.
