Plot

SpongeBob wakes up, and realises that it's April Fools Day. He begins the day with pranking his snail, Gary (who cries because he didn't know it was April Fools Day), then goes to work. Squidward, annoyed by the laughing, looks at the calendar. He is shocked and surprised that it's April Fools Day, and calls Mr. Krabs saying he's sick. Mr. Krabs says that there's some guy in his office who wants to sell Squidward's art. Squidward immediately rushes to his office, only to find that it was a prank. Squidward resigns, but gets his job back after being persuaded by SpongeBob. SpongeBob is constantly doing pranks, and his laughs annoy Squidward. He does a prank on him. He gets a blob of mustard inside a lassoo. SpongeBob goes to clean it up, and the lassoo closes on his leg. Squidward chops a nearby rope, which sends SpongeBob flying around getting seriously hurt. Squidward laughs hard out, while SpongeBob cries and run away. The customers aren't happy with him around, so they leave. Squidward has to apologize, but he can't say he's sorry. He thinks of other ways to apologize to SpongeBob, but all fail until he decides to apologize after remembering what happened.


Trivia

  • SpongeBob pulled the following pranks:
    • Tricked Gary into thinking they were going to become peasants.
    • Tricked Squidward into thinking he was artist of the month at the Barnacle Bay Museum.
    • Tricked a person by showing them where the forks are, but pointed to the spoons.

    • Tricked Tom when he asked for a couple of ice cubes, when SpongeBob gave him only one.
    • Tricked Squidward into thinking he wasn't going to tell anyone that Squidward apologized to him.
  • The plans Squidward tried to apologize to SpongeBob:
    • Put a message on the paper and putting it in the bottle (However, SpongeBob did not have a bottle opener)
    • Making a phone call by a two cup-floss phone line (However, Patrick used the floss to clean his teeth, so his message did not work)
  • Every time Squidward tried to say "I'm sorry" something funny would happen (His head turns into a donkey's face, his head explodes, etc.)
  • SpongeBob's first accident is in this episode.
  • It is revealed that April Fools Day is SpongeBob's favorite holiday.
  • While SpongeBob's accident, when he steams the butt, Bubble Bass makes a cameo.

April Fool's (689 words)
The celebration culminated on April 1 and was celebrated in much the same way as it is today with parties and dancing into the late hours of the night.
Others played tricks on them and called them "April fools." They were subject to some ridicule, and were often sent on "fools errands" or were made the butt of other practical jokes.
For instance, a British short film once shown on April Fool's Day was a fairly detailed documentary about "spaghetti farmers" and how they harvest their crop from the spaghetti trees.
April Fool's Day (582 words)
April Fool's Day or, more correctly, All Fools' Day is a holiday celebrated in many countries on April 1.
Some sources say that the special meaning of April 1 originates in the French change to the Gregorian calendar ordered by King Charles IX of France in 1582.
For example, in the late 1980s a British television Saturday morning kids' programme ran an April Fool hoax about a device named Chippy (the name is a give-away, a "chippy" is a common term for a fish and chips takeway).
