Reef Blower
is the second episode and thus the succeeder to Help Wanted. In this episode, Spongebob walks out into his yard to find a clam shell. He gets his reef blower and blows the shell away, but it leaves a large pile of sand. He gets the sand out of his yard, but it hits Squidward who is enjoying a salad that's ruined by the pile. Spongebob attempts to blow into his reef blower, but leaves a large pile in his yard. He puts the pile in the blower, but it coughs it out, so he extends it to blow it back in. He does that, but also drains all the water in the sea as well. Finally, Spongebob sucks the water out of the blower, thus leaving his yard clean, but Squidward's dirty.

  • This is the first appearance of the reef blower. It would appear in several episodes as time goes on.
