  1. Karate Choppers:
    - Take That! (a) - Helene C.C. Muddiman (title card)

  2. Karate Choppers:

    Cieszyn Polka - Wladyslaw Rakowski (TV show)

  3. I do believe that in the shot of Squidward in the time machine right after leaving the primitive world, among the mystery track when the time machine travels, I hear a bit of Kapono Beamer's "On the Beach".

    This leads into some interesting thoughts: What if this track is just a mashup of a bunch of APM tracks, but weirdly blended to create something weird?

    Contrary, we'll most likely never find that ambient noise when Squidward first arrives in Nowhere.

    On the Karate Choppers spectrum, yay Mavericks!

    1. I feel like the ambiance is a track by Ryszard Szeremeta. Sounds similar to his "Electronic Point 14".

  4. The music that plays when Squidward is in the past also plays in the 4D SpongeBob ride where SpongeBob is in Rock Bottom. The ride otherwise uses original music, so this leads to me thinking that it's an original track.

    1. Isn't what's playing there just stock sounds? The music I think the breakdown is referring to is the two-note beat playing when Squidward gets out of the time machine and encounters the tapeworm.

      Pretty good guess with Electronic Point 14 though. Wouldn't surprise me, since this episode got good mileage out of SCD-0062.

      Once again, still sticking with my theory that the time travel music is a weird mashup of other tracks. I still know I hear On the Beach briefly. One theory I've had is if the backwards violin is Gypsy Violinist or some other Dick Walter violin track.

      (Off-topic but the day Squidward goes into the freezer is finally here. Hype?)

    2. This article seems to back up that theory. According to it, the time machine sound effects were the result of Nick Carr's audio software crashing and playing bizarre fragments of various tracks. I'm not sure how to list it in the breakdown just yet (I hesitate to call it "original music" since it's technically not, and I can't really make out anything discernible while listening to it):

  5. I did some searches on the Softonic CD containing the "Sounds of Science" and "Space Work" tracks used in "SB-129", and I found some alternate track titles on that album used for those tracks on Discogs.

    * "Sounds of Science 1": "Tiny Particles"
    * "Space Work 14": "Space-Horror"

  6. Minor side note on Space Work 14; Don't know exactly when, but the APM site has now added "Jr" to Vladimir Kos' name.

  7. Do you recall "The Lion's Roar" by Jonathan Neal playing anywhere in these episodes? It's listen in the cue sheet for these two.

    1. No, I do not. I suppose it could be part of the mishmash of tracks that play when Squidward uses the time machine, but as I said I can't hear anything discernible in it.
