Home Sweet Pineapple is an episode from Season 1.







Mom and Dad

At night-time, a crowd of nematodes are hungry. They plow through a variety of items, even devouring the boat of a fish named Fred while Fred is still driving it. Then they decide that they are thirsty, so they drink the juice out of SpongeBob's pineapple house. This causes it to shrink until it becomes nothing. SpongeBob and Gary now have to get a new home. At first, SpongeBob and Patrick try to build a new house, but they build a very small one. Then SpongeBob shares Patrick's rock, but Patrick's stupidity and bad luck causes him to go to Squidward. Squidward accepts (only because he's semi-conscious), and when he realizes what he's done, he kicks them out. The next day, SpongeBob and Gary pack their bags, ready to go back to Mom and Dad's house. He finds a small pebble (the only thing left when the nematodes ate/drank his house) in his pocket, and buries it where his house used to be. He sheds a tear on it, and he walks away. This pebble is actually a seed, and his tear causes his house to grow back. The house is placed back where it was, on top of dancing Squidward.


  • This was the debut appearance of SpongeBob's parents.
  • SpongeBob said there was nothing left but a pebble (and Gary), yet he is shown with some bags when his parents pick him up.
  • When SpongeBob says to Gary "Well, looks we have to move back in with Mom and Pop"; this indicates that SpongeBob had owned Gary before he moved out of his parent's house.
  • When SpongeBob is in his parents' car he says "Good-bye Bikini Bottom!" This indicates that SpongeBob parents don't live in Bikini Bottom.
  • When Squidward ran out of his house after he woke up, SpongeBob's parents mention they have dinner waiting, even though it's morning. This could mean that Mr. and Mrs. SquarePants' home is many hours away.
  • Why didn't SpongeBob plant the seed right when he finds the seed? (He did not know the seed will grow his house back.)
  • Actually, SpongeBob did not know that his pebble actually a seed.
  • In this episode, SpongeBob parents do not live in Bikini Bottom, but in BlackJack, there is only stride between SpongeBob's and their parent's houses.
  • In Home Sweet Rubble, SpongeBob's House came back with a Pineapple-in-a-can. But in this episode, it came back with a seed.


  • The house's circumference is smaller, and Gary and SpongeBob are about the same size. After the scene when SpongeBob and Gary learn that the house is shrinking, their size ratios are back to normal.
  • When SpongeBob and Patrick are trying to rebuild his house, when SpongeBob turns the wrench (the close-up picture of him before it shows Patrick falling and the picture tilts), SpongeBob’s shirt turns dark brown and the black stripes for his belt disappear.
