The Hydro-dynamic Spatula is a spatula first featured in the episode "Help Wanted."
It has a normal spatula as a base, but has two other spatulas attached to either sides of it. Therefore, it is like a fork of three spatulas. There is a black stalk or areal on the top with a red L.E.D. light on top of that which flashes.
The hydro-dynamic spatula is one of many symbols in the SpongeBob SquarePants series. This spatula is like no other. It is what eventually saves Mr. Krabs and Squidward from a swarm of anchovies infesting the Krusty Krab. This is a turning point in SpongeBob's life and featured at the beginning of the series, giving it much significance.
It has two known abilities: propelling the user skywards and having multiple spatula heads. Said multiple spatula heads enable the user to cook patties quicker and more efficiently.
Role in the series
SpongeBob purchases the spatula on a quest in order to become an employee for the Krusty Krab (although Mr. Krabs thinks it up to prevent SpongeBob from being hired). It appears in the episode "Help Wanted" and in a picture in "Sharks vs. Pods." It is unknown what happened to it in the following episodes, as SpongeBob's normal spatula has none of the abilities of the former. Its full name is the "Hydro-dynamic spatula with port and starboard attachments and turbo drive."
