List of episodes

"Komputer Overload" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season six. In this episode, Plankton tries to replace Karen with new computer inventions.



At the Chum Bucket, Plankton is introducing a new chum sauce, which melts through the pan and later through the floor. Just then, the alarm sounds, informing Plankton about a customer. Plankton goes to receive the order, only to find that he wanted a Krusty Krab product, so Plankton tells him to get those foods and beverages at the Krusty Krab. As he complains over how the people will not buy his food, he feels that Karen wasn't a good employee to him. Then, he threatens to replace his wife with much cooler machines, all three which fails to operate steadily. One of those machines is a toaster with arms and legs, which explodes, but survives. Another which is made of mostly liquid, but popped open and lost its liquid and also survived. The last being a windmill with a hairdryer on its back. Soon, the new inventions were acting aggressive toward each other. Plankton stated that he has had enough of Karen. Karen left a note saying that she's tired of being blamed for his failures. Later, Plankton sics his machines on the Krusty Krab, but it fails. The extension for the machines is not long enough to reach the Krusty Krab. Plankton sees Karen, who has come back to get her things. He apologizes to her and she accepts his apology. They go back to the Chum Bucket together and the episode ends.

  • This is one of the few episodes where Plankton takes the role of a "protagonist villain."
  • SpongeBob does not appear until the last 3 minutes of the episode, making him a minor character in this episode.
  • The Chum Bucket has a drive-thru in this episode.
  • This is the fourth episode to premiere during Nickelodeon's "The Bob Squad."
  • The online game called "Plankton Pong" which is based on this episode.
  • The T-119A Compumatic has the production code 119a, which is the production number of the next episode chronologically by # after this one, #118b. 119a is "Gullible Pants."
  • This episode premiered three years after "Dunces and Dragons" premiered in Asia.


  • Knowing that Plankton was born in 1942, it is almost impossible that Karen and Plankton's wedding photo was in color.
    • The only ways this is possible is if they color enhanced it or they got a color photographer (which would have been really expensive because it wasn't a common thing at the time of their wedding, which would have been at least 20 or 30 years from when this episode aired).
  • The letter from Karen says microorganism, but Plankton reads it as "single-cell organism."
  • In Indonesia, after Plankton says "I've got a customer to attend to!," the Krabby things is skipped to "Honestly, I don't think anyone in Bikini Bottom would know a decent meal if it looked them right in the eye and said, "Hello! I'm a decent meal, wonderful to meet you! Please pay money for me and then put me in your mouth so your old pal Plankton doesn't lose everything he's spent his entire life working for!!!"
  • The Bikini Bottom News said that Plankton's invention was attacking the city, yet he only walked across the street to the Krusty Krab and didn't go into the city at all.
  • It is unknown how the liquid-cooled robot rebuilds itself.
    • It might have been another unit built just in case one of them broken for any reason.
  • When Plankton's giant robot rampages through Bikini Bottom, there is no power cord attaching it to the Chum Bucket. However, as the robot advances towards the Krusty Krab, the cord appears.
