SpongeBob B.C. (UGH): It is prehistoric Bikini Bottom, and we spend a day in the life of SpongeGar, Patar, and Squog. (Sponge, Pat, and Squidward's prehistoric alter-egos.) Thanks to the magic of an underwater thunderstorm, our three Neanderthal friends discover fire. After gorging themselves on barbecued-everything-they-could-find, the battle for who should control the fire ensues. Much scrambling and trickery results in the fire being extinguished, and the three cave neighbors go on about their days. Written by NAS

Unfunny garbage.
19 October 2019 | by lorandgyorgy-96671See all my reviews

This episode is stupid. There's barely any comedy, the characters are unlikable, and there's a lot of padding. This episode is also completely unnecessary, as we did get a glimpse of the sea-cave days in the Season 1 episode SB-129. The designs of SpongeGar, Patar and Squidgar look hideous and don't fit into the SpongeBob universe. And we also get another unnecessary appearance from Patchy, but this time, he's joined by an annoying futuristic robot.

Overall, an unfunny, unnecessary and boring episode. 4/10.
