Since my kids love SpongeBob and watch it every time it is on TV, it is not at all surprising that they think the new DVD is that. But, I must say that I am probably much more excited about this DVD than my kids were when it arrived. "SpongeBob, you're Fired" is actually one of my favorite SpongeBob episodes, so I was excited to have a copy of it on DVD so I could watch it whenever I like. If your family love the show as much as we do, you will want to pick up this DVD for sure.
