      "Gary Takes a Bath" was banned in the United Kingdom and Australia due to the "don't drop the soap" gag involved in the script, which was regarded to as inappropriate for a children's cartoon. Also, while SpongeBob is "assaulting Gary's mind with subliminal messages," a picture of a strange, crossed-eyed girl with freckles and pigtails appears suddenly with a giggle that was deemed too frightening for younger viewers. After seven years of not airing, both episodes finally returned to Nickelodeon in Europe and Australia in September 2008 for a single airing. After complaints from parents, the episodes were removed once again and have not aired since in both countries, despite being on the second region release of The Complete Second Season. However, the episode (along with "Shanghaied") re-aired in Australia in November 2010, and the episode returned to TV on February 27, 2011 in the UK.

    • When I was 6 watched that episode with no problem.

      but now, when I saw that photo, something was really strange and scary in that picture.

      It does look a little strange but when I was younger, I had no problem with it. I don't think it's scary but I can see what you mean when you said it was strange

    • I know, and I don't know what was the point of that picture to put it in the scene.
