A Krabby Patty is a popular burger served at the Krusty Krab. It is the best-known food at the restaurant, and the most famous burger in Bikini Bottom. It is a basic plot element that contributes to the Krusty Krab's existence. A running gag throughout the series is Plankton trying to steal the Krabby Patty secret formula.
The Krabby Patty is made out of a frozen hamburger with fresh lettuce, crisp onions and tomatoes with sea cheese, pickles, mustard, ketchup, and with a Krabby Patty secret formula, though said secret formula has never been revealed in the series. In the episode "Just One Bite," Krabby Patties are revealed to be kept in the Patty Vault. The Krabby Patty was made by Mr. Krabs when he was a kid.
There are many variations of the Krabby Patty throughout the series. However, few have made more than one appearance, and fewer have still been shown.
The Emergency Krabby Patties are patties packed in a can used for emergencies. In "Yeti Krabs," SpongeBob uses the Emergency Krabby Patties in order to save himself, Squidward, and Mr. Krabs from the Yeti Krab who was about to eat them after learning it was hungry for food, not for lazy employees which they all thought.
The Krabby Double Deluxe, also sometimes known as the Deluxe Krabby Patty, is much like a standard Krabby Patty, though it has twice the amount of meat. It has been seen or referenced in many episodes.
In "Pressure," Patrick attempts to swallow a Krabby Double Deluxe in one bite. He barely manages to swallow it, as it fills up his whole mouth. Sandy tries to eat it, but since she has her helmet on, it does not get to her mouth, and instead smears all over her helmet, which makes everyone laugh at her.
The Double Triple Bossy Deluxe is the burger ordered by Bubble Bass in the episode "Pickles." It consists of the same ingredients as a usual Krabby Patty with twice as many ingredients. The Patty Bubble Bass receives is said to have no pickles. This causes SpongeBob to become disoriented.
Once SpongeBob regains his confidence he serves Bubble Bass again. The latter claims the pickles are missing again, though it is then revealed that Bubble Bass faked the whole incident, much to everyone's horror.
The Giant Krabby Patty is a large patty meat that only appears in and is a major plot point of the episode "The Krabby Patty That Ate Bikini Bottom." It is produced after Mr. Krabs uses a growth serum from Sandy on a Krabby Patty. During its growth, it eats the Krusty Krab and almost all of Bikini Bottom and its citizens.
It is destroyed once SpongeBob absorbs the meat, making it spit out everything and everyone it "ate."
A Triple Krabby Supreme is a Krabby Patty that only appears in the episode "Just One Bite." It is a Krabby Patty with triple the amount of ingredients.
After Squidward realizes that he actually likes Krabby Patties, he informs SpongeBob about an order for a Triple Krabby Supreme, albeit letting the customer's identity remain unknown because he doesn't want him finding out his true love for Krabby Patties. He orders one on a kelp bun with extra sea pickles and demands him to burn it to a crisp.
Once SpongeBob is finished with the order, he bursts out of the kitchen and announces the patty's name to the customer. Since no one responds, SpongeBob figures that they left, not knowing that the customer is Squidward himself, and eats the patty due to its fresh quality, thus disagreeing to adhere to Squidward's idea to save it in case the customer comes back, much to Squidward's disappointment.
A King-Size Ultra Krabby Supreme is a deep-fried Krabby Patty on a stick. It only appears in the episode "Just One Bite." This is what Harold orders at the beginning of the episode, with mayo as his condiment of choice.
Patty is the Krabby Patty that SpongeBob falls in love with in the episode "To Love a Patty." He loves her so much that he refuses to hangout with his friends, too interested in spending time with Patty. Eventually, after a few hours pass, she starts to become spoiled. SpongeBob wants to go on a dinner date with her at the Krusty Krab, but Mr. Krabs informs him that because food is intended for consumption, SpongeBob can't stay attached to Patty too long and has no other choice but to eat her.
SpongeBob does at the end of the episode, much to his disgust, asking for a doggy bag.
The Aged Patty is a rotten Krabby Patty that only appears in and is a major plot point of the episode "Cuddle E. Hugs." Consumption of it causes one to hallucinate a giant hamster named Cuddle Eat Hugs.
The Rusty Patty is a moldy and bacteria-infected Krabby Patty that only appears in the episode "Born Again Krabs." SpongeBob suggests throwing it away, due to its posionous nature and even barking at him. However Mr. Krabs takes a bite of the patty and becomes sick, then being sent to the hospital.
Paper Patties are a variant that only appear in the episode "Not Normal." After SpongeBob becomes normal, his fry cooking is replaced with office work. As such, he brings a printer to work, which produces the Paper Patties. The customers initially do not realize that the patties are made of paper, but once they do, they leave the restaurant.
The Jelly Patty was invented by SpongeBob in the episode "Jellyfish Hunter" and consisted of an ordinary Krabby Patty topped with jellyfish jelly. The jelly made the Krabby Patty taste amazingly good, and proved highly addictive to those who consumed it. SpongeBob let Fred try a Jelly Patty and was so entranced by the taste that he served them to the whole restaurant, who were all amazed at the taste.
Mr. Krabs saw how good the jelly was and tricked SpongeBob into catching all of the jellyfish in Jellyfish Fields so that he could profit off of their delicious jelly. SpongeBob did so and soon captured every jellyfish there.
After all of the jellyfish were captured, Mr. Krabs imprisoned them in a factory where he proceeded to drain them all of their jelly, sucking many of them dry. However, SpongeBob caught on to this with the help of the blue jellyfish, No Name, and they had freed the jellyfish, who zapped Mr. Krabs before returning home.
Having been badly injured and having lost all of the jellyfish, Mr. Krabs took Jelly Patties off of the menu.
The Nature Patty was invented by SpongeBob in the episode "Food Con Castaways" and consisted of a Krabby Patty with organic ingredients replaced for the regular ingredients. They are similar to regular Krabby Patties but taste different and has all-natural ingredients. SpongeBob made these to help fuel up the crew after they get lost in the woods to keep them from eating the regular Krabby Patty so they could win the Food Con for The Krusty Krab. Squidward does not like then, nor does Mr. Krabs, and they both spat it out, but the Mayor and Patrick on the other hand seems to enjoy it, considering that Patrick enjoys almost everything he eats.
The Pretty Patty was originally an idea from SpongeBob as an attempt to attract new customers to the Krusty Krab in the episode "Patty Hype." They were much like ordinary Krabby Patties, except that they came in many different colors such as blue, red, green, orange, yellow, purple, plaid, and even glow-in-the dark. At first, SpongeBob was ridiculed for this idea, and he had temporarily left the Krusty Krab to pursue Pretty Patties as a personal business interest. As a result, Pretty Patties were never sold at the Krusty Krab restaurant. Regardless, SpongeBob instantly became successful after everyone in Bikini Bottom found out how great they tasted. This persuaded Mr. Krabs to eventually take over SpongeBob's business so he could get all the money. Unfortunately, the next day, it was shown that the Pretty Patties had strange effects on whoever ate them. This led to Mr. Krabs being run off by colorful people, and the business was shut down. Pretty Patties were never sold or seen again after their first appearance.
In "The Krusty Sponge," Mr. Krabs decides to turn the Krusty Krab into a SpongeBob-themed restaurant after food critic Gene Scallop made a positive review about the fry cook. He went too far by creating the Spongy Patty, a Krabby Patty used with old, expired yellow patty meat that was not in the freezer. Eating these caused the customers to get sick, turn yellow with olive green spots, and have distended bellies, nearly getting Mr. Krabs convicted and shutting down the Krusty Sponge.
In the episode "Selling Out," the Krabby O'Monday's used gray sludge (believed to be garbage) to make Krabby Patties. These were called "Synthetic Krabby Patties." The "garbage" came out of a pipe and onto a conveyor belt, where it was then shaped and painted to look like an actual Krabby Patty. When the customers realized what they were eating, they were disgusted and ran out of the restaurant.
The Krusty Dog was made in the episode "Krusty Dogs." SpongeBob creates a patty shaped like a hot dog and it becomes so popular that it surpasses the Krabby Patty as the best food at the Krusty Krab. With SpongeBob missing the patties and Squidward embarrassed by his outfit, especially around children, they team up to get customers to stop eating the Krusty Dogs by making them think they are poisonous, but this makes them crave it more. SpongeBob comes up with the idea to stuff them with balloons and inflating them before the customer eats it. No one wants to have one after that and they go back to the original patties, but Squidward has to wear a more humiliating costume. Mr. Krabs also managed to replace Krabby Patties with Krusty Dogs in this episode, which SpongeBob viewed as a drastic change.
The Krusty Krab Pizza is a pizza that only appears in "Pizza Delivery." The only reason it was made was because a customer, on the phone, asked if they served pizza, and Mr. Krabs quickly smashed a few Krabby Patties into a pizza. Krusty Krab Pizzas are made out of crushed up and clawed Krabby Patties, put into a box.
A Monster Krabby Patty is a larger version of a Krabby Patty. Based on Squidward's comments, it is a rare order. This item was a key aspect of the plotline in the episode "All That Glitters." The amount of meat required for this item put too much force on SpongeBob's spatula, which broke. Later, his spatula didn't break, but his arm got detached.
In "Greasy Buffoons," ever since SpongeBob cleaned out a massive container full of grease, Plankton had the idea of products with irresistible grease to attract customers. To gain his customers back, Mr. Krabs started his own greasy products. After a feud, the health inspector would force the two rivals, Krabs and Plankton, to shut down their restaurants unless the grease was gotten rid of.
The defeated deluxe patties would soon be replaced by Yummy Bunz, which were literally buns covered in grease. Plankton laid off patties and stuck it to grease being the only ingredient of the product and had extra flavor. The Crispity Crunchities would attract customers in a crowd just like his other greasy products. Mr. Krabs would later use Wow! Soup to take back success. This is actually just grease on a paper plate.
As the name suggests, this is a Krabby Patty with the crust on the buns removed. It appears in the episodes "Bubble Buddy" and "Krusty Towers." In both episodes, Squidward is forced to cut the crust off the patty to satisfy two customers, Bubble Buddy and Patrick Star respectively.
This is a gruesome Krabby Patty ordered by Squidward in the episode "Krusty Towers." Squidward wants Mr. Krabs to eat it, but he refuses. SpongeBob then tells Mr. Krabs that is not a Krabby Patty with cheese, toenail clippings, and nose hair, so Mr. Krabs eats it. Unfortunately, there are toenail clippings and nose hair on the patty, as Mr. Krabs gets angry at SpongeBob. SpongeBob then tells Mr. Krabs that they were all out of cheese, meaning it was a Krabby Patty without cheese, toenail clippings, and nose hair. The next scene shows Patrick's room full of cheese.
Aside from the addition of toenail clippings and nose hair, it actually looks like a normal Krabby Patty.
The Chopper Patty is a burger featured in the episode "Born to Be Wild." It has mainly the usual fixings and toppings seen on any other patty. The only difference is that the burger meat is shaped like a bicycle/motorcycle. This patty, however, is a bit smaller than a regular circular patty.
In the episode "The Algae's Always Greener," in the alternate-universe Krusty Krab, Nat Peterson complains about his Krabby Patty made by Squidward. The patty contains moldy meat, cheese, and buns, hair, an eyeball, a sock, a plank of wood, nail pins, and a dead fly. Plankton then calls Squidward out for his poor cooking.
In the episode "Goodbye, Krabby Patty?," Mr. Krabs makes an agreement with Don Grouper about making a convenient meal which he calls the "Frozen Krabby Patty." Don suggests maximizing profit by adding sand as filler, which Mr. Krabs quickly agrees.
Initially, it is a success, with everyone buying them from the supermarket and getting their convenience of not having to go to the Krusty Krab to get them. This, however, is later shown that the side effects of the filler are greatly enlarged buttocks.
Note: They are not to be confused with the Krusty Dog.
A Weenie Patty is first created after SpongeBob chops up hot dogs into smaller, rounder shapes during his time as a Weenie Hut fry cook in "SpongeBob You're Fired." He then places patty buns on them and presents them to Mister Weiner. He does not like the looks of the Weenie Patties and fires SpongeBob. However, it turns out that Mister Wiener's customers loves the patties and even have a couple of thugs kidnap SpongeBob and force him to make more.
The Noodle Patty is created when SpongeBob combines noodles from Wet Noodle and a Krabby Patty bun in "SpongeBob You're Fired." Noodleman does not like it and fires SpongeBob. Later, Noodleman fights for SpongeBob because his customers apparently like the patties.
Note: They are not to be confused with the Krusty Krab Pizza.
The Pizza Patty is created when SpongeBob combined a pizza from Pizza Piehole and a Krabby Patty bun in "SpongeBob You're Fired." Pizza Pete does not like it and fires SpongeBob. Later, Pete fights for SpongeBob because his customers apparently like the patties.
The Burrito Patty is created when SpongeBob combines a burrito from Taco Sombrero and a Krabby Patty bun in "SpongeBob You're Fired." Señor Taco likes it, but after his taste tester chomps the Burrito Patty, spraying its filling into the faces of two bystanders, he fires SpongeBob. Later, Taco fights for SpongeBob because his customers apparently liked the patties.
The "Doodle Krabby Patty" is a drawn version of a Krabby Patty that only appears in the online game Hero's Choice.
The Krabby Patty can also have a dangerous and unfortunate side effect. When way too many Krabby Patties are eaten at one time, the consumer will get very fat in the thigh area and explode. This happened to Squidward in "Just One Bite," when he broke into the Patty Vault and ate too many Krabby Patties at once. Fortunately, Squidward was only reduced to a living head and survived the explosion and somehow got his body back in later episodes.
However, if one does not have a Krabby Patty after an extensive period, he/she will suffer from Krabby Patty Withdrawal. If one does not eat a Krabby Patty during the withdrawal, he/she will mumble about it for the next three and a half minutes like Patrick did in "Pat No Pay." Krabby Patty withdrawal is due to thinking of the Krabby Patty which causes severe stomach aches. Such physiological and psychological symptoms suggest that the Secret Ingredient in a Krabby Patty supposedly contains highly addictive properties, or is possibly even some sort of narcotic.
Krabby Patty is frequently misspelled on the menu as "Krabby Pattie." One example is in the episode "Pickles."
Replicas of a Krabby Patty can be made from sand or mud, as seen in "Ugh" and "To Save a Squirrel," but they usually taste horrible. In "Extreme Spots," Patrick tasted a sandy Krabby Patty and said: "A bit dry, but flavorless. I'll take two dozen." Of course, Patrick will eat and enjoy almost anything.
Throughout the series people order a Krabby Patty with Kelp Fries and a sea-foam soda.
The Krabby Patty was originally called the "Barnacle Burger" or the "Krusty Patty."
Once consumed, the body needs it to function properly, which suggests that the Secret Sauce contains a highly addictive substance or narcotic.
A common misconception is that the Krabby Patty secret formula is the order of condiments and vegetables in between the top and bottom bun, even though it is actually the recipe for the patty meat itself.
The price for a Krabby Patty changes constantly throughout the series. A notable price change was in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie where they rose to be over $99.
An explanation for this could be Mr. Krabs trying to make more money, because he saw King Neptune arriving at the Krusty Krab.
In the episode "Keep Bikini Bottom Beautiful," SpongeBob was seen trying to follow the complete life cycle of a Krabby Patty, by making it and then throwing it away and throwing himself away with it and succeeded.
Mr. Krabs has the Krabby Patty Secret Formula written down on a piece of paper. He keeps the paper rolled up and inside a bottle. The hidden location of the bottle changes constantly because Mr. Krabs needs to keep the formula hidden from Plankton. Once Plankton discovers the location of the formula, Mr. Krabs needs to change it.
Some of the locations of the formula have been: in Mr. Krabs' well, in a cubical steel safe, under the floorboards in Mr. Krabs' office, at home under Mr. Krabs' mattress, in SpongeBob's kitchen, etc.
Krabby Patties have made Mr. Krabs a millionaire.
In the Irish dubbed version of SpongeBob SquarePants that airs on TG4 in the Republic of Ireland, the Krabby Patty is called a "Krabby Burger" instead.
It is shown in "Squirrel Record," a Krabby Patty saved Sandy's life from raw chum because Sandy was trying to make a record to eat raw chum and survive.
In most season one episodes and several season two episodes, the Krabby Patty sesame seeds are black instead of white. In most season one episodes the buns are browner, and less orange. The Krabby Patties are also smaller in season one and part of season two.
In the Russian dub, the Krabby Patties were called "Крабсбургеры," which translates to Krabby Burger. However, In season one it is called "Ленивая Пэтти" which translates to Lazy Patty. On a few occasions, they are called "Крабовое Пате" which sounds much like Krabby Patty but actually translates as Krabby Pate.
The Krabby Patty's secret ingredient was once shipped to Mr. Krabs, but it mysteriously disappeared. This suggests that the secret ingredient is too complex for Mr. Krabs to produce on the premises.
In the Japanese dub of the show, the Krabby Patty is called the "Kani Burger." Kani is Japanese for "crab," which is why Mr. Krabs is called "Kani-san" in the dub.
In Bulgarian dub, it is called "ракбургер," means "crab burger."
Krabby Patties have been sold frozen in stores in the episode "Goodbye Krabby Patty?"
It's possible that Imitation Crab meat is in the Krabby Patty because of the Nickelodeon website.
The Krabby Patty is surprisingly cheap considering how cheap Mr. Krabs is.
The patty Bubble Bass ordered isn't actually what SpongeBob gave him. In real life, the burger would be much bigger and take much longer to prepare. If SpongeBob really filled the order, the sandwich would've been cold and soggy by the time it left the kitchen.
There is a candy called Giant Gummy Krabby Patties based on the Krabby Patty from the show.
