How to be Normal is a film that SpongeBob watches to become "normal," hosted by a fish. The video was shown in the episode "Not Normal."


The movie shows the life of a 'Normal" (AKA the Average Joe) person named Joe and how his life crosses with the other "Normals". It shows what his house looks like, how he communicates with others, and how his cycle works.

After watching it, it effectively wipes his personality to the "normal" lifestyle and turns him from a fast food restaurant fry cook/chef into an incredibly bland and boring accountant/office worker that Krabs is puzzled and annoyed about after the Paper Krabby Patty trick is found out (by losing all his customers for the day, of course!)


The video case has a green background, and has a businessman/Average Joe who you would stereotypically perceive to be "normal." The title of the tape is: How to be Normal for Beginners.


  • When SpongeBob open the case its a VHS tape, but the episode "Not Normal", was premiered in 2008. They stopped making new movie titles in the United States in 2006 ending with the last Hollywood major film on VHS A History of Violence.
  • It's unknown if this ever had a DVD release.
