The party set would have been 10x better if it had Patrick's house instead of Spongebob's and was an add-on to the most recent Pineapple set, which probably would have kept selling. I love the party versions of the characters and the fact that Mrs. Puff is in this set.

I like both of these sets in some ways and dislike them in others. The colors of the Flying Dutchman's Ship are pretty badly organized, and his face seems a bit iffy. It would have been excellent if Brick Daddy's head could have been used, since it would have had a decent beard-shape and his hair shape in the back. Unfortunately, it's far too small and probably wouldn't work with that hat anyway. On the other hand, in general the set uses some clever building techniques, and the figs are probably about as well-made as they could possibly be. Well, with one exception-- Dutchy should have gotten his dining sock.
The birthday party set is pretty decent, but I don't like Squidward's house in this set. The original was no work of art, but this one seems more blocky than rocky. The "party" elements outside are well done, though. I love the amplifiers made from treasure chests The interior of Spongebob's house bugs me a bit-- if that's supposed to be his catapult bed, it's much less appealing than the original version.
Spongebob's house has a lot of pyramid-shapes on it, probably to give it more of a pineapple texture, but the end result doesn't feel too authentic to how it's depicted in the show with mostly-smooth walls. And it doesn't feel much like a genuine pineapple shape, for that matter-- just a stylized pineapple with a few hideous growths. I like how the sloped "roof" sections are now attached, but otherwise I feel it pales in comparison to past versions. A better improvement would have been using hinges to make the walls more smooth, IMO.

As for the Flying Dutchman I feel like they missed the opportunity to give us a new Mr. Krab's (Who has yet to get proper claws), also the Dutchman minifigure is disappointing (Printing the nose on there makes the whole face look weird). And while the design of the entire thing isn't bad, I feel like some transparent pieces would have been welcomed (Considering its a ghost ship).

-Flying Dutchman's Ship!
-Squidward's House again and Spongebob's House
-Merry Go Round
-Nice colours on the ship
-Small Dutchman Ship
-They could be based off new episodes which I don't watch but if not, they're for some reason creating stuff not based on episodes like that boat set. Why? There are plenty of old episodes as well as new episodes to base stuff on.
-To use some of the stuff from the party set they may have flowers on them.
The Flying Dutchman:
Could get thanks to FLying Dutchman and ship. Awesome.
Bikini Bottom Undersea Party:
Might get. Got some good stuff, but is based on a new or non-existent episode.

They're just better pics of the figs. Each picture links to a bigger version on Brickipedia.

Yeah it is a good show and love watching it with my 10 year old and im 30. I'm supprised that they are still producing new Spongebob sets but they sure do sell quick here in Australia as the are a Target exclusive so they are hard to get your hands on.
May the Brick be with you!

Already got 3818 Bikini Bottom Undersea Party. I'll be going to the Lego store tomorrow to grab 3817 The Flying Dutchman!

Anyway to make the images smaller, or have them side to side?
Oh well, not a big fan of Dutchman..the whole head/beard thing doesn't work for me.

I'll still buy the set though, as I really love the FD episodes.

At least Spongebob and Patrick look great, pity no Squidward getting hit by lightning constantly !
Still the Dutchman figure is good....except the beard part, meh.
