These episodes paired together made a 1 hour and 5-minute long, 3 episode special with no commercials, making this episode the longest SpongeBob SquarePants episode ever since Atlantis SquarePantis, which aired in 2007.
This episode is very similar to SpongeBob's Last Stand.
This episode did beat the timing of Atlantis SquarePantis.
Later, Nickelodeon announced that they changed about The Algae's Always Greener in Glove World to a TV movie like Atlantis SquarePantis, but it will still always air with Uncle Cledus's Story and Time Out!
This is the first time the Chum Bucket is seen without the Krusty Krab.
