Roller Cowards




Before Glove World R.I.P.


Patrick trepasses into SpongeBob's house and shows him an AD for Glove World's new scary rollercoaster called "The Fiery Fist O' Pain". They plan to go on it at Glove World tomorrow. That night, Spongebob has a nightmare that him and Patrick go on the ride and fall into their graves. SpongeBob wakes up and he said that he doesn't want to go on the Fiery Fist O' Pain.

The next day, Patrick breaks into SpongeBob's bedroom strangely after having the same nightmare at the same time but they decide not to tell each other. The bus then came and they went to Glove World. They realized that it's a long line to the new so they decide to start going on the ride for toddlers called "The Mitten" which they're scared of because of the small lump annoying the toddler who's on the ride with them. 

Just then, they saw Larry that went on the ride. Spongebob said that he didn't go on the ride because he was hungry along with Patrick! Soon, they eat Ice Cream.  Patrick has to use the bathroom and argues with the Reflection in the mirror while Spongebob and Ice Cream got into an argument. Patrick and Spongebob want to tell to each other, but Glove World will close in 5 minutes. Hearing about that, they finally go on the Fiery Fist O' Pain, but it's not working they tell each other about the nightmares. Actually, the ride was fixed and they lose their spines at the end of the ride and chose to go again anyway.


  • This is the second time Glove World is seen. However, this is the first time the inside of it is shown. Glove World also appeared in Stephen Hillenburg's inspired episode Rock Bottom.
  • The "Fiery Fist O' Pain" first appeared in one of the artworks on the Friend or Foe DVD special features.
  • After SpongeBob and Patrick finished the ride, they said "Let's go again", but in the scene before, it said that SpongeBob and Patrick were the last people to go on the ride for the day.
  • The music Unknown Tracks 3 now plays shorter instead of a little long like Karate Island.
  • Miranda Cosgrove rated this her favorite SpongeBob episode in SpongeBob SpongeBash.
  • This is the first time Patrick brings his TV to SpongeBob's house.
  • In Bahasa Indonesia, SpongeBob says "heart attack" instead of "spine loss", and "frightened" instead of "projectile vomiting".
  • In Spongebob's dream, when he falls off the roller coaster, it is similar to Jason and Carrie's death from Final Destination 3.
  • When the ride goes up the Fiery Fist O' Pain a chain is heard but no chain is seen.
  • When Old Man Jenkins is pushed by Harold from a wheelchair from the Fist O' Pain. SpongeBob and Patrick think he got injured on the ride and ran off. When actually, he had a serious medical condition and was not allowed on the ride.
  • The Fiery Fist O' Pain was new in this episode but it was in Season 1's Rock Bottom. However this might be a likely paradox.
  • There is a LEGO set based off of this episode - 3816 Glove World. Evidence that the set is based off this episode is that the Ice Cream clerk in the set is wearing exactly what Nat Peterson wore when he accepted their tickets. Also, Patrick is wearing the same bib and is messy as a figure in this set. However, the Ferris Wheel was not seen in the episode, nor was Sandy . Nat was also a different color than the one in the set.
  • In Bahasa Indonesia, Nancy Suzy Fish was said "My Boyfriend!!!" instead of "Harold , no!!!"
  • Spongebob is a sea sponge (hence the name), so he shouldn't have a spine.
  • It was voted #28 of 100 Greatest Cartoons of all time by members of the field animation.
  • Error: When Harold first wheels Old Man Jenkins out of the Fiery Fist O' Pain, his fin was missing in that shot.
  • This is the second time Patrick has a talking relflection. The first was in Rule of Dumb.
