It Came from Goo Lagoon is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season nine. In this episode, mucus bubbles form from Goo Lagoon. Plankton, however, plans to use them.
It is a typical day at Goo Lagoon and SpongeBob and Patrick are having fun. Suddenly, large purple volcanic Mucus Bubbles, also known as "Super Bubbles" arise out of the lagoon. They came out of a crack at the bottom of the lagoon. Two bubbles approach SpongeBob and Patrick. Just as they were going to use them to bounce like a ball, Sandy approaches them. She claims these bubbles are dangerous. However, SpongeBob uses them anyway. Meanwhile, Plankton tries to sell his chum from a wheelbarrow when Squidward smashes him with an umbrella. SpongeBob and Patrick use their Mucus Bubbles to likewise bounce and smash Squidward and his belongings. More bubbles begin to arise from the lagoon, and the Bikini Bottomites begin to use the bubbles. Sandy tries to explain to SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, the Bikini Bottomites, and Plankton, that the bubbles are dangerous. She says that they are safe when stable, but if unstable, it can coat all of Bikini Bottom in a poisonous goo. Plankton hears this and builds a machine to find a bubble large enough to destroy the entire city, as most are rather small. Then he goes under the water in a ship to find the crack where the bubbles are coming from.
Meanwhile, everyone continues to use the goo, although Sandy said it was dangerous. SpongeBob and Patrick continue to use the goo as bouncy balls. Squidward begins to use the goo as a hairdo. The other citizens continue to use it for their own purposes as well. Perch Perkins begins to report for the Bikini Bottom News with Johnny. He states how the gooey Mucus Bubbles are popular at Goo Lagoon. While on the air, Sandy, now going partly insane with her theory, says how the bubbles were dangerous again. Everybody still thinks she is wrong, but soon she will be right. Plankton continues on his quest to find the ultimate Mucus Bubble in his ship. He is set to find the crack at any cost. Soon, he finds it. Plankton, as well as Karen, widen the crack, and unleash the largest Mucus Bubble. It rises out of Goo Lagoon, and everybody now agrees with Sandy.
The trio examine the bubble, and realize it is dangerous. They need to stop it with supplies from Sandy's Treedome. SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy proceed to her treedome. However, Patrick gets sweeped into the bubble, controlled by Plankton. The duo gets into Sandy's submarine at her treedome, then proceed to save Patrick. They soon find the giant bubble and send down a rope to grab Patrick, who is sitting on the goo. Patrick climbs up the rope into the submarine, and then the three prepare themselves to stop the bubble.They soon discover that Plankton is controlling the bubble, after they see his ship. The recently reformed trio pursuit Plankton around the bubble. They oddly catch him seemingly easily. Sadly, Plankton outsmarts the trio and sends them off the bubble. He also destroys Sandy's submarine. The trio then pursuit the bubble on foot through Downtown Bikini Bottom. They end up at the Krusty Krab. SpongeBob, Patrick, Sandy, many Bikini Bottomites, and Mr. Krabs confront Plankton and the bubble in front of the Krusty Krab and Chum Bucket. Then, they attempt to send the bubble away, and foil Plankton's plan. Their attempts are failures, however. Plankton then demands the Krabby Patty formula or else he will pop the bubble, and coat the entire city in a poisonous goo. Left with a choice of giving up the formula or being chased by an angry mob, Mr. Krabs reluctantly surrenders and gives him the "formula". Plankton outsmarts them again, and popped the bubble anyway. The city is now covered in a poisonous goo. Plankton proceeds to read the "formula " on his ship. It reads, "The Only Ingredient Is... T.N.T."! He realizes the formula is fake while the T.N.T explodes, ruining his plan. Mr. Krabs, covered in goo, thinks everything is back to normal. Sandy corrects him, saying the fact everyone and everything in Bikini Bottom is covered in goo, saying that it is a "disaster". Mr. Krabs makes a plan to clean everybody. He uses soap bubbles to clean everybody and everything in town, while still making a profit.

- The title card is similar to the title card of Planet of the Jellyfish and Evil Spatula.
- The mucus bubbles in this episode are purple, despite the title card makes it seem like they would be green.
- Sandy's submarine from Bubble Troubles appears again and is also destroyed.
- It was also damaged/destroyed in Bubble Troubles.
- Plankton sells chum from a cart in this episode, like how he sold chum from a box in Drive Thru.
- SpongeBob, and Patrick run back and forth from the water similar to how they ran back and forth from their houses in That Sinking Feeling.
- On the promo, Nickelodeon called the episode "SpongeBob vs. The Goo".
- In the promo, a version of the song Can Can is played.
- This is the third appearance of the moon, close up. The first two are Sandy's Rocket, and Mooncation.
- When Sandy, and SpongeBob re-entered Earth's atmosphere in Mooncation, Sandy had to make sure they didn't burn up. Yet Plankton went right up, and came down fast, and never burned up.
- This is the first episode to air in 2014.
- A sneak preview of the new Nickelodeon animated show, Breadwinners, aired after this episode.

- Patrick, once again, had a nose.
- In the end, everybody gets cleaned. This is similar to the de-icking in Fungus Among Us.
- This episode may be before SpongeGuard on Duty because Spongebob and Patrick do not know how to swim.
- When Patrick got hoisted up away from SpongeBlob, he says "Goodbye SpongeBlob." a similar line occurred in Don't Look Now.
- At one point Patrick pulled his arm off and it didn't grow back. Normally the limbs of a starfish do grow back. Patrick's limbs in the episode Karate Star did grow back however.
- It took a long time to grow back in that episode, so it is probably that it would have taken too much time to wait.

- It might also be a reference to the movie, "Creature from the Black Lagoon".
- When the Super Goo bubble is shown between the Krusty Krab and the Chum Bucket, the path leading from the Chum Bucket to the road is missing.
- Both Patrick and SpongeBob's clothes change from their swim outfits to there normal outfits without it being shown.
