"Enemy In-Law" premiered as part of Nick's Friday Night Slimetime block on October 14, 2005, alongside a new episode of Catscratch. This block began on September 23 and ran every Friday (except for 10/28) until November 11, 2005. In this time, seven episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants made their debut during the block. Though Friday Night Slimetime was discontinued in 2005, the block briefly returned on February 20, 2006 as "Friday Knight Slimetime" to promote the premiere of the medieval-themed SpongeBob special "Dunces and Dragons."
This is a personal recording I made way back when on a blank DVD (which explains why this recording remains so gorgeous 15 years later.) I was absolutely obsessed with SpongeBob SquarePants around this time and would never miss a new episode. This premiere was a rare instance where I was out of the house on Friday night for something school-related and thus had to record it.
Embedded are the surviving Friday Night Slimetime segments recorded before and after the SpongeBob and Catscratch episodes. As seen in the video, repeat episodes of the Avatar: The Last Airbender episode "The Blue Spirit" and the Danny Phantom episode "Identity Crisis" aired after my recording cut off, as well as the two-part My Life as a Teenage Robot episode "Escape from Cluster Prime" at 9 p.m.
