"Jellyfish Jam" is an episode from Season one. In this episode, SpongeBob brings home a jellyfish, but creats chaos.






After SpongeBob captures a jellyfish in Jellyfish Fields, the jellyfish does not want SpongeBob to go away. So, SpongeBob brings a jellyfish home as a pet and shows Squidward, who is not impressed. Now, it is party time in SpongeBob's pineapple when the jellyfish and SpongeBob break it down with music so loud, that even Squidward tries to be even louder. When it is bedtime, the jellyfish saw his friends from outside the window (his friends are probably has been looking for him) then invites all the other jellyfish into SpongeBob's house and turn on the music to party. SpongeBob awakens and checks out the noise. When he notices all the other jellyfish, he tries to get them out but nothing works, not even Squidward's music. Squidward tried to play his clarinet in a horrible way, then the jellyfish stung him and broke his clarinet. But Gary has the answer! Gary's eyes clashing together making a musical beat is the answer to having the jellyfish stay calm. After SpongeBob notices this, he carries Gary back to Jellyfish Fields with a musical song on the way. As the jellyfish follow and float back into the fields, SpongeBob and Gary run back to the pineapple where they are finally safe from the jellyfish. At the end, Squidward (who is severely stringed) gets into his bathtub as it ends.
