Who lives in a pineapple under the sea and has six Blu-ray releases coming out today? Scream it with me: “SpongeBob SquarePants!!!”

We know SpongeBob is an icon and all that, but why are there six Blu-rays for The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water? These aren’t separate covers for SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, Sandy, and Plankton. There’s a Blu-ray Combo Pack, the Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, and four retailer-specific versions.

Those four extra versions are exclusive to each respective retailer, with each one packing in a little something extra that’s separate from the actual discs. All of the special goodies are only available with a purchase of the Blu-ray. If you don’t have a Blu-ray player, there’s also a single-disc DVD out today as well. However, the Blu-ray also includes multiple special features. Besides the actual Blu-ray disc, a standard-def DVD, the Digital Copy, and the UltraViolet Digital Copy, there are over an hour’s worth of extras, including:

  • On the Surface
    • SpongeBob SquarePants: Out of His World
    • When I Grow Up, I Want to Make Funny Sounds
    • Becoming Burger Beard
    • Making the Burger Mobile Chase Sequence
    • It’s Hip to Be SquarePants
    • A Day in the Life of a Sponge
  • Underwater Awesomeness
    • Plankton Rules the World!
    • Bikini Bottom Confidential: Rock Stars of the Sea
    • International Sponge of Mystery: Meet Bubbles

      • Teamwork
      • Theme Song/Rap Battle
    • “Squeeze Me” Music Video by N.E.R.D.
  • Deleted/Extended/Alternate/Test Scenes

The 3D version of the Blu-ray has all of the same special features listed above, but adds in a 3D version of the film and a 3D-enhanced version of the “Thank Gosh It’s Monday” deleted scene.
