Now that Spongebob is Nickelodeon’s longest running cartoon, we figured it was about time to collect some of the greatest episodes the iconic show has ever put out.
“Patty Hype” (Season 2, Episode 5)
When Mr. Krabs doesn’t like Spongebob’s idea for a new type of Krabby Patty, he has to compete with the Krusty Krab.
Usually, Spongebob does absolutely anything Mr. Krabs tells the guy to do, but this episode puts them at odds. We get to see that Spongebob would be a pretty decent businessman. Well, he would be if he found out how to avoid staining tongues with his Pretty Patties.
“I can’t see my forehead. Why are you mad?” —Patrick
“Welcome to the Chum Bucket” (Season 2, Episode 14)
Mr. Krabs loses Spongebob in a card game with Plankton, and he has to go work for Plankton.
We all know the one thing Mr. Krabs loves more than anything else (it’s money), and only get to see his soft spot for Spongebob every once in a while. And sure, the cynics will say that Mr. Krabs only misses Spongebob because he can’t cook and will lose a bunch of money. But can you really watch “This Grill is Not a Home” and not tell me Mr. Krabs isn’t the father figure Spongebob needs?
“What is he doing? Those tears? And the show tunes? Why isn’t he making the patties? Forget it! I’m going with Plan B. I’m putting his brain on the robot chef.” —Plankton
“Jellyfish Hunter” (Season 2, Episode 19)
After Spongebob reveals a tasty new way to eat a Krabby Patty, Mr. Krabs harvests jellyfish for their sweet jelly.
In “Welcome to the Chum Bucket,” we saw how close Mr. Krabs and Spongebob can be at times. But mostly, Mr. Krabs is chasing money at all costs. This is especially true in this episode, with Krabs committing several animal rights violations. Did anyone else want to try a hamburger with jelly after this episode?
“What smells like big business?” —Spongebob
