Suds is an episode from Season 1.





SpongeBob awakens hungry in the night. While preparing a midnight snack, he leaves the refrigerator open, causing his home to freeze. By morning he has developed the "suds", a sponge sickness similer to a cold or flu-in-u-enza. SpongeBob refuses to admit to his illness, to avoid missing work, but finally relents to take rest. He calls upon Sandy to take him to the doctor, but is first visited by Patrick.

When Patrick convinces SpongeBob that doctors are harbingers of torture and outdated magazines, SpongeBob allows "Doctor" Patrick to practice on him. The inane treatments (such as making foot sandwiches and congesting his ostia with corks). When Sandy arrives she takes SpongeBob to a real doctor, who prescribes the "sponge treatment", which is performed by a live human hand named Hans. This involves being rinsed with soap and used to scrub various objects and people. The treatment cures SpongeBob completely, and he even receives a lollypop. Jealous, Patrick requests the sponge treatment as well, but unlike SpongeBob's treatment he gets an aching treatment for starfishes.

Associated Production Music

  • Yee Haw 1 - [original music by Sage Guyton and Jeremy Wakefield] ("Hey, he's my patient!")


  • The fridge was left open, freezing SpongeBob's entire pineapple house. However, this would actually heat the house, as the heat removed from the inside of the refrigerator is released out the back, along with the extra heat from the motor.
  • The music we hear throughout the episode is Tchaikovsky's "Dance of The Sugar-Plum Fairy" from "The Nutcracker." The music is also heard in the episode Christmas Who? (Episode) when the wooden squids play their clarinets on Squidward's wooden clarinet.
  • The man taking a shower during the live-action "sponge treatment" scenes is Tom Kenny.
  • As seen in one of the Nick Magazines, Tom Kenny was actually sick when voicing for this episode.
