Characters

Synopsis

Mr. Krabs rushes to the Krusty Krab shouting like a maniac, telling of the return of the hooks. SpongeBob is confused, and Mr. Krabs tells him that he has to be careful when near a hook, or he will be brought up to the surface and eaten or sold at a gift shop. Patrick shows up, saying that the carnival has come to town and insisting that SpongeBob come with him but SpongeBob is yet to know Patrick is referring to the hooks as the Carnival. He agrees, assuming that he's not quitting work but just taking a break.

The two friends went to the carnival, but much to SpongeBob's horror, the "carnival" is really the site of the hooks to Mr. Krabs warned everyone about. Patrick deliberately hooks himself, and shoots up towards the surface on it. SpongeBob panics, wails, and cries, until he sees Patrick again, who explains that he jumped off and floated down before he reached the surface of the sea. They both played hooky together.

Meanwhile, at the Krusty Krab, Squidward wasn't making the patties, and Mr. Krabs told him what happend. He said that SpongeBob took a break and he wasn't back yet. Mr. Krabs thought Squidward was playing around with him, and he asks Squidward to repeat what he said. After hearing this the second time, Mr. Krabs runs over to the hooks and runs to SpongeBob and Patrick to catch them, with Squidward being mauled by the angry mob. He misses the first time, but once SpongeBob and Patrick float down, Mr. Krabs catches them, and makes them promise to never go near the hooks again. However, the next day, Patrick persuades SpongeBob to play "hooky" again. SpongeBob denies the request, but he goes to the hooks anyway. SpongeBob was walking to the KK, but when he gets near a hook he first looks very sneaky and almost touches the hook, but then realizes he is doing the wrong thing and walks away like nothing happened. However, SpongeBob comes back and plays on the hook, and then...

SpongeBob gets caught on the hook, and, terrified, runs to the Krusty Krab for help. Mr. Krabs tells SpongeBob that the only way to get the hook off is to take off his clothes right in front of Pearl and her friends. He first take off his pants, revealing his underwear. SpongeBob doesn't want to take off his underwear, and Mr. Krabs told him he will find another fry cook. SpongeBob pulls on The Krusty Krab sign and the hook takes his underpants away. SpongeBob was relived, but the sign flinged him into the door. Pearl and her friends laugh at SpongeBob for being naked. He screams and runs out of the Krusty Krab into his house. SpongeBob was never seen ever since the siege of the Krusty Krab.

However, it is then revealed it was Squidward who hooked SpongeBob and got him naked, and that he did that just because he has to learn his lesson. When Squidward pulls the ripped underwear into the Krusty Krab, Mr. Krabs congratulates him and Squidward tells him about the reason. Both Squidward and Mr. Krabs laugh. The episode ends with Patrick, trapped in a tuna can was dropped off from the bus shortly after SpongeBob ran home and he asks "Does somebody have a can opener?"

Reception

  • "Hooky" was ranked #56 during the Best Day Ever event on November 9–10, 2006.
  • This episode is number 7 on Tom Kenny's Top 20 on iTunes. His description says: *"SpongeBob and Patrick as 'rebels without a cause' (or a brain), riding fishermen's hooks and jumping off just before being yanked ashore. This episode inspired the song 'Riding the Hook' on 'The Best Day Ever' CD, with legendary punk rocker Tommy Ramone playing drums!"

Trivia

  • Hooky is a term for skipping somewhere that you have to be at. (usually used for school, but in this episode it was used for work).
  • While promoting The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, the title character of that show appeared in the lower-right hand corner on the day of its premiere, and using one of his inventions temporarily transformed the cartoon into a puppet show during the scene where Mr. Krabs is making SpongeBob and Patrick recite an oath that he is giving.
    Spongebob Puppet

    Hooky SpongeBob Puppet

  • There is a plug and play TV game of SpongeBob Games by Jakks Pacific and there is a game based on this episode. In the game, SpongeBob must protect everyone else, even Plankton from the hooks. Many players are fooled by Plankton's appearance however, and let him get hooked, which causes a game over.
  • A brief clip from this episode appears in a 2003 Burger King commercial promoting Spongebob toys at the time.
  • This is one of the very few occasions that SpongeBob acknowledges Patrick's stupidity. When Patrick asks "Are you gonna listen to a big dummy, or are you gonna listen to me?" SpongeBob weakly replies "Ummmm....".
  • Mr. Krabs says that nobody has taken a break at the Krusty Krab since the "Chum Famine of '59", but SpongeBob has taken a break in "F.U.N." and many future episodes, and Squidward even went on vacation in "Squeaky Boots" and "Summer Job".
  • The music playing during one scene is actually from a short segment of Flubber.
  • When SpongeBob fruit snacks first came out, an advertisement for them featured the snacks acting out a part of this episode along with scenes from episodes of other Nicktoons.
  • Though SpongeBob, when hooked by Squidward, was being dragged away from the Krusty Krab, Squidward was standing in the Krusty Krab.
  • Anyone in the Krusty Krab seems unaware and uncertain about hooks. It is similar to real-life fishes that doesn't care about the hook with a bait.
  • This episode was on The Interact TV DVD "Krusty Krab Adventures"

Errors

  • When Tom was at the register saying, "Can I get that to go?", he walks into the wall.
  • When Mr. Krabs says "Squidward", Squidward moves his lips to what Mr Krabs said.
  • When Patrick and SpongeBob are at the "carnival", Patrick says that there was a kid there before them and we see a shoe. However, fish don't wear shoes. However, it may not have been a fish.
  • Underwater, there are lots of hooks that are very close together, but when SpongeBob and Patrick ride one of them like a horse and start getting reeled in, there is only one boat with one fishing line.
  • Squidward's fishing line was small in the end, and the end of the fishing pole is at the Krusty Krab. When SpongeBob was attached to it, the line was massively long, and the fishing pole ended to the top of the ocean.
  • SpongeBob says that he always goes to work the way leading to Squidward's and Patrick's houses. In some of the other episodes, he is seen going to work the other way.
  • Patrick is seen jumping of a Hook even though in Glove World R.I.P. he says he is allergic to jumping down. However, this may be due to the fact that he knows better now, and made an excuse.
  • Amazon Instant Video says the episode was released on March 3, 2001.
