Packaging was done nicely, and I did not see wear or tear on this set. Priced at $64, (not including shipping and\/or tax), is a great deal for less than a dollar per episode, you are getting a great deal right here. This includes some of the best episodes of Spongebob, and it has aged wonderfully. All 100 episodes are spread out through 14 discs, making this set 38 hours of hilarity! The first five seasons are on this set. The special features are lackluster, but the best one has to be \"Square Roots: The Story of Spongebob Squarepants\". This documentary is worth the price of this set alone. Finding the episode you want is very easy, with the help of the episode guide on the back of every case. I constantly find myself watching Spongebob, and this really helps. If you have been a fan of the Sponge since 1999, like me, this is an easy recommendation. However, if you are starting out as a new Spongebob fan, I still highly recommend this. It's a great show to watch with your kids (or in my case myself) and will be considered one of the greatest cartoons ever.
