The Graveyard Shift is the first segment of the 16th episode of Season 2 of SpongeBob SquarePants and is 36a overall.

Why It Shouldn't Be Killed By The Hash Slinging Slasher

  1. It's a funny episode with gags such as "Oh boy! 3 AM!" and SpongeBob eating his hands like popcorn.
  2. Squidward's story is genuinely scary.
  3. The scene where someone who looks like the Hash-Slinging Slasher seems to turn off the lights is a great way to end the episode, especially Nosferatu actually turning off the lights.
  4. It's a deliciously dark episode overall with some funny jokes to tone down its creepiness.
  5. The at night scenes were funny, entertaining, and have some great animation.
  6. This is one of the most suspenseful episodes of the series.

Bad Qualities

  1. The episode can be nightmare fuel and frightening for young viewers.
  2. The concept was not that good for 2 reasons.
    • Almost the entirety of the episode takes place in the Krusty Krab, because of the Night Shift, leading to less variety.
    • It's about Squidward just telling a story. It's no more complicated than that. Fortunately, it was saved by good gags and a hilarious ending.
  3. Mr. Krabs seems to be a bit unlikeable here. This is the first time he made his employees work for 24 hours, and that would repeat in Fear of a Krabby Patty, a later episode.


Despite being the next episode after The Secret Box and Band Geeks, along with Krusty Love, it was released about a year after those episodes.
