Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - amazon.com - tv.com - tvrage.com - spongebob.wikia.com - watchcartoononline.com - en.wikipedia.org: «Dunces and Dragons, also known as Lost in Time, is the sixth episode of the fourth season and the 66th overall episode of the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants. It was written by Zeus Cervas, Erik Wiese and Tim Hill, and was directed by Alan Smart and Tom Yasumi. ... The series follows the adventures and endeavors of the title character and his various friends in the underwater city of Bikini Bottom. In this episode, SpongeBob and Patrick go back in time. There, they find that Mr. Krabs' ancestor is the ruler of the kingdom, which is being attacked by Planktonimor, Plankton's ancestor and an evil wizard. SpongeBob and Patrick, assisted by Squidly, a jester and ancestor of Squidward, and the Dark Knight, Sandy's ancestor, have to rescue Princess Pearl, King Krabs' daughter, who has been captured by the wizard. Tie-in promotions were made with Burger King, which released a series of toys based on the episode. ... SpongeBob and Patrick attend a jousting tournament at the Medieval Moments restaurant. Both accept an invitation for members of the audience to participate in the tournament. They are put on seahorses and given lances. The seahorses charge without warning and SpongeBob and Patrick are thrown out of the building into 11th-century Bikini Bottom. A group of knights surround and imprison them, with Squidward's ancestor, Squidly. Squidly is a jester locked in the dungeon for telling a bad joke that causes the king to have a stroke. Eventually, the king, Mr. Krabs' ancestor, King Krabs, orders SpongeBob, Patrick and Squidly to the throne room. They are to be executed but Princess Pearl, the 11th-century ancestor of the present-day Pearl, reminds King Krabs of the prophecy that two brave knights, having fallen from the sky, will be sent by the king to defeat the evil wizard, Plankton's ancestor, Planktonimor. During the princess' story, Planktonimor's dragon kidnaps her. King Krabs then begs SpongeBob and Patrick to rescue her. The two gladly accept with Squidly in tow. As SpongeBob, Patrick, and Squidly near Planktonimor's tower, the guard, ancestor of Sandy Cheeks, the Dark Knight, blocks them. SpongeBob outwits the knight in a karate duel but spares her. In return the Dark Knight accompanies them on their quest. On reaching the top of the tower the dragon arrives. As the dragon is about to destroy him SpongeBob pulls out a Krabby Patty which the dragon eats, becoming subservient to SpongeBob. The dragon destroys Planktonimor and the heroes return to the kingdom to celebrate. The seahorses again become aggressive, tossing SpongeBob and Patrick and landing them in the present-day tournament.».
