"Krusty Dogs" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season seven. In this episode, Mr. Krabs changes his menu from Krabby Patties to hot dogs.




The Krusty Dog.

At the Krusty Krab, SpongeBob's preparing a large batch of Krabby Patties and humorously shaping its byproduct with the last of the Krabby Patty pieces. After his last joke in which he seems to be talking to Gary, he made a figure resembling a hot dog. He cooked it in a pot and the Krusty dog was given to Mr. Krabs. SpongeBob suggests adding the Krusty dog to the menu only if he uses the leftover meat which possibly means Mr. Krabs doesn't want to buy extra meat to make Krusty dogs.

When a customer is curious about where the employees are, he looks into the kitchen to find the latest Krusty Krab product and is impressed. The happy customer convinced others to buy it. After serving several eager customers, Mr. Krabs posted the product with the name Krusty Dog on the Galley Grub for 3.99 or 4.99 with cheese. Gaining a higher popularity than Krabby Patties, Mr. Krabs ordered the patties off the menu since no one likes them anymore. He also throws out the grill and spatula which causes SpongeBob to suffer and go unconscious. The advertisement changed also as Squidward was dressed as a mascot, only to be kicked by Tyler, and posters were posted everywhere including changing the name of the restaurant.

In a plan to put patties back, SpongeBob pasted out rumors and lies about what some of the real ingredients are. After little success and help from Squidward, he made people think that a Krusty Dog will explode which annoyed them by exploding a Krusty Dog with a pump in one customers face. When Krabby Patties regained popularity, Squidward is dressed in a costume again only to be kicked by Sadie, thinking that the patties are only as bad as the Krusty dogs.

  • One Weiner Later
  • The Following Day
  • The theme of this episode is very similar to "Pizza Delivery," in which a different type of food is made with Krabby Patties.
  • Though only happening twice, it is a running gag where Squidward is in a costume with Sadie and Tyler talking about good education and then one of them giving Squidward a kick.
  • This is one of very few episodes where someone wears a costume to promote the Krusty Krab. Two others are "Bossy Boots" and "The Krusty Sponge." The next one will be "The Good Krabby Name."
  • During the change in the menu, after Squidward calls the weiners "highway robbery" at the price ($4.99), Mr. Krabs replies with "avec fromage," which means "with cheese" in French, and $4.99 is the price of the hot dog with cheese.
  • Because of the constant use of the word "weiner" or "weiners" (18 times to be exact), this controversial episode was banned in some countries, or the word was replaced by hot dog.
  • The Galley Grub on this episode is the same as the one on "Krusty Krab Training Video" and "Pickles."
  • This is the second time SpongeBob is exposed in a major shock from Krabby Patties in a situation problem and then remains breathing pump development. The first was in "The Great Patty Caper." He was also shocked about Krabby Patties in "Shellback Shenanigans," although, he wasn't developed in a breathing pump.
  • When Mr. Krabs comes up with the idea to sell Krusty Dogs, he eliminates Krabby Patties from the menu. In Pizza Delivery, he didn't eliminate Krabby Patties from the menu when he came up with the idea to sell pizza.
  • When Mr. Krabs renames his restaurant "The Krusty Dogs," SpongeBob mispronounces it as "Krusty Dog."
    • It is possible that it was intentional.
  • This could have been part of a bookend with "Patty Hype."
  • When SpongeBob looks out the window to see Mr. Krabs renaming the restaurant, he wouldn't be able to read the signpost from that angle.
  • SpongeBob boils the very first hot dog in water, but in reality, if you boiled hamburger meat in water, it would fall apart. Though hot dogs in real life are made with ground meat, they are tightly packed in casing, which keeps them from falling apart, though Krabby Patties are not regular meat, due to having a secret formula.
    • This episode has given a secret away unintentionally; the secret of the Krabby Patty Formula must be a compound to hold the meat together, as evidenced by the above fact.
  • This is the second time the grill is removed. The first was "Bossy Boots."
  • This is the second time Mr. Krabs renames his restaurant without dropping the "Krusty" part. The first was in "The Krusty Sponge."
  • SpongeBob doesn't seem to know what a hot dog is in the episode "SpongeBob You're Fired."
  • This is the first episode to have food as a background on the title card.
  • This episode premiered on John O'Hurley's 56th birthday and three years after the Atlantis SquarePantis book was released.
  • This episode premiered in Latin America on Ricky Gervais' 51st birthday and one year after "The Other Patty" premiered.


  • When Mr. Krabs crosses out Krabby Patties on the menu, a woman is eating one right behind him.
  • SpongeBob had trouble holding a pair of tongs, but when he boiled the very first Krusty dog (which was before that other scene), he was using tongs, with no trouble.
